Ric Flair had a few things to say about TNA.
Ric Flair is mostly known for his work in WCW and WWE over the past two to three decades. He has won 16 World Championships and continues to appear on WWE programming today as his daughter Charlotte’s manager.
Well, there was a time when the Nature Boy was in TNA from 2010 to 2012. This came about two years after he had his retirement match for WWE at WrestleMania 24. He even competed in a few matches for Impact Wrestling and led a stable called Fourtune.
Flair would leave TNA in 2012 after being fired for contract tampering in an attempted return to WWE.
On a recent episode of his WOOO! Nation podcast, Naitch spoke a bit about Dixie Carter’s company. He didn’t give them much of an endorsement, though.
They’ve had their opportunity. It’s not going to be there again, in my opinion.
Sting is gone. Kurt Angle is gone. AJ Styles is gone. I mean, I’m not by any means demeaning the talent that’s there, but I don’t even know who’s there anymore.
Many names have left TNA over the past year like Kurt Angle, AJ Styles, Austin Aries, Samoa Joe, Low Ki, MVP, Team 3D, among others. Flair can’t be faulted then for not knowing who the company employs anymore given all the changes.
It’s also safe to say TNA isn’t at the level they used to be about five years ago, partially due to all these departures.
