“I’ve seen it twice,” he said. “I think they are going to see a whole different side of wrestling. They’ll see the commitment I made to wrestling and some of the mistakes I made for my family. I used to wrestle 365 days a year, twice on Saturday and twice on Sunday. I don’t think people know that I did that for 20 years. I think I’ll be a folk hero with men, but all women will despise me.”
Flair said that he is a big fan of rap stars such Miami’s Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg and others. He gave his opinion about Ross’s hit song “Bout That Life” dedicated to the man himself.
“I love Rick [Ross]. I see him when I am down here. He lives in Atlanta,” Flair said. “I am honored. I’ve done stuff with Post Malone. I like Rick Ross, Post Malone, 50 Cent. My closest friend Snoop is on 30 for 30. I am a big fan of Snoop Dogg.”
He later said, “Snoop gave me credit for creating swag.”
Flair also gave his take on WWE superstar John Cena potentially breaking his record of most World title reigns in sports entertainment and if he would attend the match.
“I love John Cena,” he said. “We are good friends. If he breaks the record, I wouldn’t be bothered at all. If they fly me in, it will be tipping me off; so that can’t happen. If I am there, that would be great. I don’t think it’ll happen. I think the next thing for John is hosting ‘Good Morning America’ or ‘The Today Show.’”
Flair also discussed the most expensive robe he has worn and more.
