The last time Ric Flair was on WWE television, he was being sent home by his daughter Charlotte after a love story with Lacey Evans, which ended with Evans being pregnant.
Evans later confirmed she is legitimately pregnant and while the storyline alluded to Ric being the father, Evans never mentioned who the father is.
Speaking to Ariel Helwani on his MMA Show, Flair gave his thoughts on the storyline and how it played out.
"In this instance, I didn't (feel comfortable). It didn't make a difference. One thing I've learned is that you're not going to win a war when someone has their mind made up. [Charlotte] most definitely didn't like it. I always say 'yes' because I didn't want to be that guy who is like 'that isn't perfect for me.' I have been buried in the desert, I've gotten my head shaved, no other top guys have gone through this. I've done everything. I've gotten fired for a year because I took my son to AAU Nationals. I've weathered every storm and come back. I got to TV and Mr. McMahon wasn't there to argue the point with. He had stuff going on and, I don't like to put pressure on someone if I can't talk to him. He had made up his mind. I think a lot of it is because [Lacey] is a Marine and we can't give enough back to the people who have served. He wanted her to be successful and the way to be successful sometimes is to take two other people who are doing well and give them the rub. She's a nice girl, but it didn't fit. We made the best of it and ultimately, she's pregnant now with her husband. It was never anything personal, I barely know her," said Flair about Evans.
Flair continued, reaffirming his stance on the storyline by saying, "No, I didn't like that one. To [Vince], I'm always going to be 'kiss stealin, wheelin' dealin,' which is great because he likes that even though he hated it when I used to say it. [Ric doing Vince impression] '80s heels don't draw! Go lead by example! If I put you in the first match it's because where you belong!' You're not going to win the argument. He's smarter and he's the boss."
It is unknown if or when Ric will return to television.
Charlotte continues to be a focal point of WWE television and will challenge for the Raw Women's Championship at WrestleMania Backlash.
