Ric Flair News: More On Charlotte, Roddy Piper, WWE Status For Today

16 Time World Champion Ric Flair recently joined Chris Duke and co on Bell 2 Bell Radio, a new wrestling podcast. On the show, Ric spoke about number of things, including his daughters recent success in NXT and once tagging with the Highlanders and Roddy Piper in Glasgow.

WORKING WITH RODDY PIPER AND THE HIGHLANDERS:
Oh yeah, I do remember that, wearing the Kilt and everything, Roddy had two with him, so we thought “why not?”, we had a lot of fun that night in Glasgow. I’ve known Roddy since 1976 or 77 and he’s just a great guy, we’re very very close friends.

WHAT IS RIC FLAIR DOING WITH HIMSELF THESE DAYS:
I was just on RAW last week, I’m on RAW about 8 or 9 times a year and my daughter is, of course, in NXT. I just keep busy doing a lot of appearances for the company and I keep busy with my own promotional stuff, you know, like autograph signings, hockey games and NFL Hockey games. Basically I work every weekend….if I want to.

ON CHARLOTTE MAKING IT TO THE MAIN ROSTER:
Do I think she’s ready? She’s been ready for at least 3 months. The question is whether they are ready for her. The DIVA’s devision needs a good shaking up, and she’s the one to do it. I don’t know what the time scale is like, but there is nobody like her, I’m not saying it because she is my daughter, but because she is just that good.

The full interview is available on the very first episode of Bell 2 Bell, available from Podomatic and from iTunes very soon.
