Ric Flair Reveals WWE Made A Video Package Anticipating His Passing In 2017

Ric Flair appeared on The Pivot podcast to talk sports, his lifestyle, Reid Flair’s death, his daughter Charlotte Flair, his health issues and a lot more.

Flair talking about waking up from a coma after being near death four years ago:

“31 days later, I woke up in the ICU. For 13 days I was on life support. I had no memory for six months. I could remember going forward, but I had no memory of the past. They wrote me off. I was operated on Monday morning. The WWE made a package because it was, like, a 5% chance that I would make it through it. It makes you re-evaluate everything. But at the end of the day, I still think that if you’re not hurting anybody, and you’re certainly not being malicious, I don’t think it’s wrong to have fun. I’m not going to stop. I spent a year worrying that I was going to die every day. Once you’ve been that sick, I mean, all you do, and it’s kind of like getting over that anxiety, then you start feeling more comfortable. Then I had one beer, and one champagne, and then two beers and then a couple of years now and drinking the vodka once in a while. I guess the best way to put it is there’s nothing left for me to do. I’m going to have fun. My family is all in a good place.”

On dealing with his son Reid’s death:

“For 5 years, I drank from 10 in the morning until 2am. I quit working out, everything. I couldn’t shake it. I just couldn’t shake it. I couldn’t live with myself.”

“Sometimes I wonder if I pushed them too hard. It’s like Ashley. When I saw that Ashley had these gifts, I just, as every father that played sports, you know, now you gotta get the jump on it. You can’t just start in ninth grade anymore.”

On if he blames himself for Reid’s death:

“I think it’s possible. Yes. I don’t blame myself for it but, I mean, I think about him every day.”
