Ric Flair News: Muzzled in TNA, Working with Hulk Hogan

The legendary Ric Flair has been doing plenty of interviews and had another newsworthy one with Monday Night Mayhem.

He says he has a muzzle so far on him in TNA, but it seems more storyline:
I’m just getting going. They still got me on a muzzle up there, but when I get going and when they turn me loose in TNA, then we’ll really get going… I will enhance their (fans) view of my reputation and make them very proud I came out of retirement.

on working with Hulk Hogan in TNA so far
They have a guy (Hogan) that’s running the company and – don’t make any mistake, I’m not putting him over for anything more than what he is – he is arguably the biggest star in the history of the business. It’s right there between him and Steve Austin. He’s a guy that everything he touches turns to gold, he has a vision, and he wants to make a point. Very few times in the experiences of my life that I’ve known Hulk Hogan have I ever seen something not come true, sometimes much to my dismay.

putting over Kurt Angle:
They probably have the best wrestler I’ve seen in a long time, and I love all my friends in WWE, but Kurt Angle is a machine. He’s a different kind of cat. He lives and breathes a different kind of oxygen. He has nothing to prove, but our good friend who just passed away, Jack Brisco, and Kurt Angle are two of the most phenomenal athletes to make the cross-over (from amateur wrestling).
