Ric Flair and Mark Madden hosted a new episode of "Wooooo Nation Uncensored" podcast recently during which Flair gave his thoughts on WWE Superstar Kevin Owens and why he never liked the Raven gimmick.
“I think the world of Kevin Owens,” Flair said. “He’s a respectful, nice guy. He has unlimited talent. He has a hell of an interview. Before he ever used the stunner, he called Steve (Austin) and asked him. That’s respect. I did a segment with him on a Thanksgiving Starrcade show. It was the Kevin Owens’ KO show, and he asked me, ‘What do you want to talk about?’ I said, ‘Hey, you’re the boss.’ He said, ‘You’re Ric Flair.’ I said, ‘That doesn’t mean anything to me right now. We’ll talk about whatever you want to talk about.’ He’s a very respectful kid with a ton of talent. He takes these huge bumps and all that. I’m happy for him and I wish him nothing but success. He’s a great guy.”
“I couldn’t stand it and I told him. I couldn’t stand the gimmick. I didn’t think sitting in the corner was that cool. Sitting down in the middle of the ring, crossing your legs, and talking to the audience didn’t appeal to me either. I didn’t say he was a terrible worker. You asked me if I liked the gimmick and I said no. I like Raven, I just didn’t like the gimmick. Everybody has a personal preference. He told me when I saw him, ‘At least I got told I was horrible by the best.’
