The Ric Flair-Lacey Evans story has been rejected following the pregnancy of Sassy Southern Belle. Ric Flair sat down for an interview with Busted Open Radio, and the WWE Hall of Famer opened up about his ideas for the story that WWE rejected.
The Nature Boy had many plans, but they could not materialize since WWE simply did not allow him to enter the ring. While Ric Flair claimed his doctors had cleared him, WWE officials weren’t prepared to see him get physical.
“I had some ideas. The problem was that they wouldn’t want me to get in the ring because it’s very difficult to get the go-ahead due to my health problems. Even though my doctors have cleared me, I just don’t. They’re prepared to let me get in the ring. In case something happened, it would never be, like I could have 40 pitches, but that would be it, why the hell are you doing it? He did that? “
It would have been fun: Ric Flair reveals the ideas he came up with for the Lacey Evans story
Ric Flair would reveal some of the creative ideas he had in mind for the Lacey Evans angle. Flair wanted to train with Evans and show him how to emulate him. The WWE legend believed that Lacey Evans by incorporating the best aspects of her personality and work in the ring would have helped the story of RAW.
“I actually wanted to, you know, put on sweat clothes and I wanted to work out with her, which I thought would have been great. You know, teach her a few things and have her emulate my character. Yeah, doing the twists, suplex inside, turn around, pleading (laughs). Oh, I had it all written down, but they wouldn’t let me get in the ring. I had the master plan; it would have been fun (laughs). “
Ric Flair added that while Evans was initially upset about the cancellation of the story, the Superstar would later realize the joy of welcoming another child into the world.
“It never came to fruition, and I’m happy that things turned out the way it did, especially for her because I think she was a little upset, a little. But then she said, ‘God, I’m going to have a baby. This is it. that’s supposed to happen. I’m young. I have a beautiful daughter and a second is on the way. So everyone wants to be on TV, but in this case, she’s not going to be on TV for a while. wonderful reason that we all know. “
Ric Flair noted that Lacey Evans is not expected to be on WWE TV for long, and the company also appeared to have booked a segment on last week’s RAW to write Nature Boy off television.
