It seems that Ric Flair is his own harshest critic. During his time in WWE, he had five WrestleMania matches. His first was against Randy Savage, then against Undertaker, the Rock and Sock Connection, a Money in the Bank match, and finally against Shawn Michaels.
Now, Flair has said he doesn’t think he has ever had a good WrestleMania match. He was a guest on the Wrestling Inc. podcast where he made this revelation. Here is the quote, courtesy of Hooked on Wrestling:
“I don’t think I had a good Mania match. Nothing that Ric Flair could deliver on. I think I could have been really good with Randy [Savage] but he was so preoccupied, that was the last time he and Liz were together. That day was the last time they were together – they went their separate ways. They weren’t living together at that time. I’m not 100 percent sure on what the exact living conditions were but, to my knowledge, they weren’t together and Randy was so upset. We got through it and it was okay. But I would never want to be remembered for that match by any means.”
Flair also said his match with Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania XXIV was his favourite.
While Flair might think otherwise, all of his WrestleMania matches are considered good by most. His WWE Championship match with Randy Savage at WrestleMania VIII is by far the best match on that show and a great encounter.
