Ric Flair Buries TNA – “They’ve had their opportunity”

– During a recent edition of his WOOOOO! Nation (transcript credit wrestlinginc.com), Ric Flair shared his thought son TNA and the fact that Vince McMahon feels he has no competition. Here are the highlights…

On His Feeling That Nothing Can Save TNA: “They’ve had their opportunity. It’s not going to be there again, in my opinion.” Flair continued, “Sting is gone. Kurt Angle is gone. AJ Styles is gone. I mean, I’m not by any means demeaning the talent that’s there, but I don’t even know who’s there anymore.”

On Vince McMahon Feeling He Has No Competition: “I can remember when I was there, when [McMahon] told me, and I’m sure Bruce [Prichard] heard it long before I did, that he didn’t have any competition in the [professional] wrestling business [and] that his only competition was Disney. That’s what he said to me one time. And now, he doesn’t feel like he had any competition. And the rumor went around that Rupert Murdoch was going to go against him and, you know what? They estimated, and this was 10 years ago, the estimated price would cost Rupert Murdoch back then to open up against Vince, and this was 10 years ago now [or] 15, take a guess. $450 million. That’s contracts, equipment, I mean, if you look at what the company [has now], the company has 22 eighteen-wheelers. Are you kidding me? And the hotels on a Monday or a Sunday have 230 or 280 people in them. That’s a lot of overhead, guys.”
