Ric Flair Reveals Which Manager He "Hated" Working With

During this week's To Be The Man podcast, Ric Flair reflected on the Steamboat vs. Savage match at WrestleMania III, his matches against Savage, and also Hiro Matsuda which he apparently hated. Check out the highlights below, and also listen to the episode on the Apple Podcast player.

On Ricky Steamboat-Randy Savage match at WrestleMania III:

“I never watched it until a year ago. I thought their match was great,” he said.

“But you know, you have to remember, which takes nothing away from the match whatsoever, but when you take George ‘The Animal’ Steele and you take Miss Elizabeth, there’s a lot going on. There’s a lot of activity that created a lot of excitement to the match as well. So it takes nothing away from the two of them, but there was a lot of outside activity, which brought I thought a lot of drama.”

“I didn’t watch the show that much back then, but I understood what was going on. It’s a little bit different from the kind of matches I had with him.”

On comparing his matches:

“Well, I think their matches were much better. I’m sure they had other matches that were better than me and Randy. I could never adapt to that laying it out. I mean, we had decent matches, but nothing like Ricky and Randy had together,” Flair shared.

On Hiro Matsuda as his manager after JJ Dillon went to WWE in 1989:

“I hated it. I’ve always been really fond of JJ. There’s nothing against Hiro. Hiro was just in the right place at the right time. George (Scott, who became the booker) was a very respectable guy and respected his friends and I respected Hiro. It just didn’t look normal.”
