During a recent interview with BT Sport, Ric Flair discussed why winning the Royal Rumble in 1992 was so important to him. Here’s what he had to say:
It was an opportunity to get my self-confidence back. To become the person that I had let WCW destroy. My self-confidence. And when I came, Vince didn’t promise me that, he didn’t tell me. I just got to the building over in New York and he said, ‘You’re going in three, you’re coming out with it.’ One of the greatest nights of my career. I hate to keep saying that, because I have different nights for different reasons, but that obviously got me back up and running. Just like when they brought me back in 2001. Because in ’99, when the company closed, it was the happiest day of my life, the day that WCW closed. But my legacy was not intact, like it is now, without the help of WWE.
I so wanted to say to WCW, stick it up your ass. I’m with the big boys, and look where I am in their eyes, as oppose to where you had me positioned.
