Dutch Mantell Responds To Ric Flair’s Scathing Comments – As noted earlier, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair had some harsh words for the legendary Dutch Mantell, after he criticizes Flair for his “Final Match” last summer.
Mantell then responded to Flair’s tweets on the “Smack Talk” podcast.
“He actually sent me a tweet today. He said I made you more famous with one tweet, and you’ll ever be. Thank you, Ric. Please, send out another tweet. I want as many tweets as you can send out with my name in them because you did me a favor. I’d say that. He called me an old something, a crippled old man. I’ll give you one; I am old. I remember him telling the fans to kiss his ass. I remember that. I’ll give you one thing, Ric. I’m old, but you are too. You are two months older than I am, so you can’t blame it on that. But I think my name today should have been trending on Twitter, and if it’s not, I’d be surprised,” Dutch said.
Dutch joked that Flair didn’t even tag him in the tweet, adding, “He didn’t tweet me; somebody forwarded it to me. He didn’t even put my name in it. Now, that’s disrespectful. If someone talks about you bad and you’re going to send something about it, at least tag me in it. He didn’t tag me in it!”
Mantell discussed the reactions he’s received from people, and revealed that he is up for a debate with Flair.
“I didn’t start hearing about this until 5′ O clock, I guess. And then, from there on out, I’ve been covered up in DMs, private messages, and texts. But out of 100% of them, if I could just, 90% kind of agreed with me. When you tell the truth, and he responds in such a way, there must be something to it. All I’m saying is he is ungrateful. Now, he might go back, and he might think about it again and say yeah, let it go. But if he doesn’t, hey, I’ll debate him anytime. It’s not up to me; it’s up to the fans and how they perceive it,” Dutch said.
Flair then responded tonight via Twitter, with what may be another jab at Dutch, writing, “Dutch, Let’s Just Agree To Hopefully Growing Old Reluctantly But Gracefully! We As OLD VETERANS Need To Be United, Not At Odds! [heart emoji]”
Dutch has not responded to Flair’s last tweet as of this writing.
