WWE and Ric Flair have not had the best of relationship, over the years. Flair, originally a WCW guy jumped ship to the WWE after Vince McMahon owned that rival brand. But then again after retirement in 2008, he went on to pursue a career in TNA creating a bitter relationship with the company. But finally, he came back and showed regrets for his decisions.
Now, the reward could be bigger for staying with WWE as the company is looking forward to filming something very special for him. Ric Flair has indicated that his biopic is in the works.
A legendary wrestler like him certainly deserves this considering how colorful his life has been. The global fanbase of him should know more about it and what better to make a movie on him.
The WWE Hall of Famer appeared on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio recently and talked to another Hall of Famer and his former colleague from WWE, Mark Henry, among others.
Ric Flair went on to reveal that The Rock and his Seven Bucks Productions are working on this project along with WWE. WWE Studios are said to be down for a movie about his life and career. Here’s more from his own words,
“I talked to Dwayne and Dany Garcia … and Hiram Garcia and they’re gonna collaborate, the last time I heard, for all this stuff and make a movie with the WWE (about) me with Sue Levison, who now is with WWE and is doing a fabulous job,” Flair said (H/T to The Score). “Sue’s got a great background. As soon as everything gets rolling again after that, they’ll make that movie. I am looking forward to that because I’ll have a lot of input.”
Previously, The Rock has produced another biopic on WWE superstar Paige’s career which has a worldwide release. The youngest Divas Champion in WWE history was the first superstar to get a full-length feature film. Perhaps, Ric Flair is going to be the second one in line. Confirmation on this film is soon to be received.
Ric Flair is often helmed as the greatest of all-time in pro-wrestling business who has sixteen world championships by his name. He is a two-time Hall of Famer who had lived life, king-size to be precise. The illustrious story of his life should be a gift to the fans.
While speaking in this interview, Ric Flair also said that a TV show about his life in the 1980s is also ready to be released,
“It’ll probably come out at 1 in the morning, rated XXR,” he joked.
