Ric Flair talks WWE Super ShowDown.
Two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair tuned into WWE Super ShowDown this past Friday and during a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, Flair discussed the Triple H versus Randy Orton match and the main event of Super ShowDown which was Undertaker versus Goldberg. Undertaker versus Goldberg was not well received by fans and the match was heavily criticized along with Goldberg revealing that he knocked himself out during the match and felt that he let his fans down.
Ric Flair shared his thoughts about the match and stated that Undertaker and Goldberg are two legends in the wrestling business and the turnout of their match was not because of their ages but rather because they are not in the ring consistently. Flair went on to praise Triple H and Randy Orton's match and explained why he thinks highly of their bout.
“Well, the overall feeling is this: they opened up hot, I loved it, and I loved the match up until the last minute-and-a-half, and here’s the deal: whatever you want to say about anybody in this business, he is gonna be on Mount Rushmore if there is one. You keep saying this… you can say no wrong about The Undertaker." Flair said. "He is a talent of a lifetime, and Bill Goldberg had arguably the greatest run of anybody for years and has still never had anybody spend more than a half-hour with him learning the fundamentals of the business and he pulled it off, and I’m sure that he’s brokenhearted, but it’s tough, and it’s not factored around age. When I was doing this stuff, I was still… they had me back in the ring on a regular basis. It is so hard to come in and work two or three times a year. It’s hard. They’re making a big deal about Kevin Durant coming in, try taking six months off from wrestling and getting in the ring, and climbing on a Stairmaster or an elliptical is not the answer to getting in the ring and going full speed and my hat’s off to Hunter." Flair continued, "I don’t know how he does it. I thought he and Randy Orton had a hell of a match. Old school? Yes, but old school is new school and it was a heavyweight match. Two contenders going at it, and they didn’t miss a beat, and Randy is working full-time, Hunter works twice a year, that’s hard to pull off.”
