Last week on the Steve Austin Show (transcript via wrestlinginc.com), Steve Austin spoke about the Ric and Charlotte Flair segment from Raw. While Austin likes both performers, he felt it was “real bad”…

“[Ric Flair] spilled the beans as soon as he went out there. He had only been talking 10 to 15 seconds and I said, ‘oh, he’s getting fired or she’s going to kick him out of the damn ring’ and that’s exactly what happened. And then, man, that was a pretty rowdy crowd and she got lost. And I love Charlotte. She’s a talented female. She’s still green, but she [has] got so much potential. And she carries herself [like a star]. When she enters that damn arena, everybody comes to their feet when they hit that music. It’s a moment. We’ll see what happens with the matches that she’s in, but she’s a special one too. But that was just a real bad [segment] and that thing, Ric kind of spilled the beans. Whoever wrote that, and you know Ric is one of the best promos in the history of the [professional wrestling] business and you don’t writing [anything] for Ric Flair. Just let him go out there and do his thing. But, so he’s going out there and he’s trying to memorize this script that someone wrote him and he spilled the beans, started tripping all over himself, and then, it only got worse from there. And then, Charlotte’s trying to recoup and she gets lost a couple of times and goes at the crowd and then kind of misspeaks and then it was extremely awkward and it was hard to watch because I’m such a fan of the Flairs.”
