Booker T Says He Talked To Ric Flair, Thinks He Could Be Gearing Up For In-Ring Return

Is it possible The Nature Boy isn’t done inside the squared circle just yet?

If you ask Booker T, anything is possible.

The WWE Hall of Fame legend spoke about talking to Ric Flair during a recent installment of his Hall Of Fame podcast, and according to the conversations he has had with ‘Naitch, he could be looking to get back into the ring.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the episode where Booker T touches on a potential Ric Flair in-ring return.

On Ric Flair not being the managerial type: “My thing is this, and I’m going to let you take this into the break, Ric Flair is not the managerial type of guy. It’s just not his role. As well as, Ric Flair is not one of your guys that wants to be in the office, coming to work every day, wearing a suit and going into the office. That’s not Ric Flair. Ric Flair’s a party guy. That’s just his nature. You saw him on Triller, he’s all about having some fun.”

On how Flair might be looking to get back into the ring: “Now my thing is this, I talk to Ric Flair on a regular — usually on a regular occasion, I don’t know how often I’m going to see him now, but Ric Flair told me, he said, ‘Book, I’m never going to retire.’ He said, ‘If I could be in that ring right now, that’s where I’d be.’ So I think Ric Flair may be looking at one last run.”
