Looks like the Nature Boy is back doing what he does best. WWE legend Ric Flair took to YouTube to thanks his doctors, the medical staff, his family and friends for the love and support while he was hospitalized.
In the first part of the video, Flair talks about the mistakes he made, but all the friends he made too along the way.
He praises his wife Wendy greatly and says he is who he is for better or for worse.
One of the most notable moments from the 30 for 30 documentary came when Shawn Michaels, one of Flair’s closest friends and the man who retired him in 2008, questioned whether the wrestling icon has ever taken the time to get to know Richard Fliehr, the man, as opposed to the over-the-top Ric Flair.
In part two, Ric addressed Shawn Michaels’ comments.
“Until you have laid in that hospital bed, in a coma for twelve days and actually talked to God and begged for his mercy and begged him to forgive you cause you don’t know where you’re going. You don’t know if you’re ever going to wake up who have no idea what goes through your mind. I still will ask Wonderous Wendy, “Did this happen?” And she’ll say, “No, where did you get that?” Because that’s how bad it was! And I will never, ever be able to thank you, Jim Ross, for what you said on my 30 for 30, as mad as I was at you for saying it, because it’s the truth! I was irresponsible, I did have tax problems. One thing you’re wrong about, I never went upstairs alone! 100 Kamikazes, yes!
And Shawn Michaels, I’m sorry but you’re not in a position to judge me, buddy. Telling me I’ll never know who Richard Fliehr is? Really? You think I’ll ever know? I don’t know. Richard Fliehr, like I said before, was an irresponsible kid who was blessed with the greatest parents in the world, did everything wrong. And by the way, who are you to judge me? I mean, really? C’mon man, let’s get serious. You’ve opened the door, you opened the door, I’m giving it back to ya. Who are you to judge me? Are you kidding me? You idolized me and then all of a sudden – contempt? For what? For what you grew up loving and for what inspired you to be who you are? I don’t think so, man! Hey, and I want to say one more thing: again, Miz. Now Enzo Amore, Big Cass. People I know casually and people that I’ve become close too, because I love being young!”
You can’t stop me now, baby! I got my wheels on the ground. Once again, thank you for everything, thank you dear God, thank you the world, thank you, thank you! WOOOO!”
So it took $1.8 million dollars to heal the Nature Boy.
A small price to pay.
