Ric Flair Sounds Off On Stephanie McMahon's Unexpected WWE Departure

What did "The Nature Boy" think when he first learned that Stephanie McMahon had resigned from WWE following the return of her father, Vince McMahon, to the company and reports and rumors of a potential company sale?

Ric Flair shared his thoughts on the subject, as well as the latest on whether or not he has any interest in another in-ring return, during the latest installment of his official podcast, "To Be The Man."

Featured below are some of the highlights from the episode dealing with these two topics where 'Naitch shares his thoughts.

On another potential in-ring return: “I don’t know why they keep saying I’m begging for another match. What I have said to you repeatedly is I wish I could redo that match. I’m not begging for another match. I don’t want to wrestle again. I have no desire. I wish I had that match to do over again is what I’ve said repeatedly.”

On Stephanie McMahon’s departure from WWE: “Yes, and actually disappointed. I like Stephanie a lot. I just put up a tweet yesterday. She is one of the 10 best heels in the history of the business. Phenomenal heel. I have no problem saying that. I mean, I thought it out and I shot that over to her with a smiley face, but she’s that damn good man. She was. I mean, obviously she was a phenomenal ambassador. I mean, I know that Ashley and all the girls and all the work with the others think the world of her.”
