    Ric Flair On Undertaker Asking To Work With Him At WrestleMania, If He Prefers Taker’s Biker Gimmick

    Recently on WOOOOO! Nation, two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair talked extensively about his WrestleMania 18 match with The Undertaker.

    When Flair returned to WWE in the fall of 2001, he was not going to be used as an in-ring performer. A couple of months later, Flair would find himself in a street fight with Vince McMahon at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. According to Flair, The Undertaker asked to work with him at WrestleMania a few weeks later and Triple H broke the news to him shortly thereafter.

    “Hunter walks out to me at [WWE Monday Night] RAW about a month [after WWE Royal Rumble] and says, ‘Taker wants to work with you at ‘Mania.’ I said, ‘what?’ I mean, I was in shock, right, that he would [want to]. He said, ‘yeah, well, Taker wants to work with you at WrestleMania.’ And I said, ‘my God, I’m overwhelmed. That’s great.'” Flair continued, “I was just thrilled. I never dreamed that I would even be in that spot again because when I told him I’d come back [to WWE], I thought I was never going to wrestle. It ended up, obviously, being part of my legacy, wrestling all those matches.”

    When asked whether Flair prefers the somber ‘deadman’ version of The Undertaker or the Limp Bizkit loving Bikertaker, Flair went with the former.

    “I like the original Undertaker better, but he pulls this off too. He said, ‘I just got tired of it.’ And he likes motorcycles. Like, it didn’t change the persona of him. I mean, he didn’t change his work or anything. He just changed the look a little bit and he just was great.”

    Unlike Flair’s WrestleMania 8 contest with ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage, which took days to orchestrate, Flair said that he and The Undertaker, along with Michael Hayes and Arn Anderson, worked out the match the day of WrestleMania and most of it was called in the ring.

    “He and I, we just talked out there [in the ring]. Does that make sense? I mean, we had an outline, but I had worked with him a lot in the 90s, so we were really familiar with each other.”

    Although Flair admitted that he would have liked to have wrestled ‘The Phenom’ when ‘The Nature Boy’ was in his prime, he acknowledged that the two of them put on “one hell of a match” together, nonetheless, and that The Undertaker selling Flair’s offense made all the difference.

    “I would have loved to have worked with him when I was, like, 35 or something like that. I could’ve really given him a match, but this worked out pretty good.” Flair added, “he sold the crap out of stuff for me. That’s what got the match over because nobody thought I would be able to do anything with him. But when he let me get him down on the ground, he let me get on him good.”

    According to Flair, he was paid in Canadian dollars for WrestleMania 18, which was broadcast live from Toronto, Canada.

    “Well, the difference is, remember, this is in Canada. And so, at that time, we got paid in Canadian dollars. I actually made more money wrestling Randy [Savage at WrestleMania 8 in Indianapolis, Indiana] than I did wrestling this match.”

    Considering WM8 was Jake’s last televised WWF show and Taker’s dark, destructive character at the time, it was perfect for Taker to face, dominate and defeat Jake, essentially writing him out of WWF entirely. Randy Savage vs Flair along with Bret Hart vs Piper were the matches of the night at a mostly lackluster WM8 and Savage/Flair really should have closed out the show.

    Had Flair been at WM9, he’d have been a great opponent for Taker, better than Gonzalez, but then that can be said for a good portion of WWF’s 1993 roster. The fact that Taker requested to work for Flair and sold for him like he did to make Flair look better than he really was, it just pours out from me to Taker, respect and appreciation because he could have requested anyone and there were some great names on the roster – Angle, Austin, Rock, Jericho (whether he would be granted any of these requests or not if he had made them is an entirely different subject matter) – but he requested someone who was past their prime by that time in Ric Flair.

    Taker and Flair did have some house show matches and some matches that were “Coliseum Video Exclusive” such as the one on Taker’s His Gravest Matches tape. But a main event PPV feud would’ve been nice.

    Deadman or ABA….in the end, Taker’s Taker, Deadman, biker or otherwise. As Flair stated, aside from what was on the surface – looks, entrance, music, promos/interview, nothing beyond that stuff changed.

      So the match was supposed to end with the Last Ride. Honestly, I love the Last Ride but for the video packages looking forward the streak, I think Flair kinda botching the finish did work out.

      what i loved about taker vs flair back in 2002 was the the build up before the match .
      i belive undertaker played the heel charcter perfectly , and his character was to be the most coldheart villian type never seen before in WWE.
      usually we are use to see heels running out of a challenge or cheating to win , but taker was challenging and beating them all.
      taker saying bad words to the crowd to polish his charcter!
      like once he said (say “WHAT” if you want to sleep with your own sisterS)!
      i still remember the segment when he beat the hell out of david flair son of rick flair on smackdown backstage and called flair saying i know you have a daughter too !!! and laughed (i cant forget that evil laugh of him)
      cant be worst than this charcter in WWE ,,
      i looooovvved it so muchhhh,, the best and toughest heeel ever in the history
      he beats his own heel character in 1999 (ministry of darkness ) ..

      thats why undertaker is better than any1 in the history of WWE ,
      WHAT EVER HE DO HE IS JUST AMAZING

      o me its weird for undertaker in 2002.I saw him chopping off his hair , i actually read in dirtshets in 2001 (14 years ago!!) that taker cuts off his hair into the big evil persona. He has the feud with flair,rvd then hogan,hhh and the title at judgment day. Wont forget the match with jeff hardy/the rock .Crazy year for the deadman especially the first half of 2002.

    • Undertaker old fan on March 27th, 2016 says:

      In 1992 The undertaker faced Ric flair in a cage match , when Flair was the WWF champion at that time
      The undertaker defeated Ric flair that night

      I hope that wwe relase some of undertaker’s unseen matches

      @yousif:

      2002 was still pre-PG. But I still believe they went too far at times with the build. Taker bloodying Flair’s son and Arn Andersen who was and still is disabled….too far. The Deadman would have been able to get Flair to accept without physical assault. In 2002, Taker was the ABA.

    • yousif on March 28th, 2016 says:

      @anan
      i agree they went too far
      thats why i said never seen before

    • yousif on March 28th, 2016 says:

      @ancientrites
      my friend ,, remember this ,, brock lesnar will retire and undertaker will still be competing at wrestlemania

      ,, note it ,, markt it ,, stick it on you wall ..

    • yousif on March 28th, 2016 says:

      @bambam
      talking about 2002 , taker is the one who clearly helped hogan to win the title against triple H in thier match , only because he felt hogan is easier !! and when hogan was celebrating , taker left the arena with that great evil smile on his face and later on he won the title!

      taker was the unique kind of heel , never eveeeer seen before

    • Anan on March 28th, 2016 says:

      @yousif:

      Well Taker can retire first. He’s given us his body longer than he has needed to. He’s been in more pro wrestling punishment, over 25 years worth. During the early years of Taker’s beatings, Lesnar was a young high school/college, NCAA, whatever he was. On the other hand, Lesnar isn’t a fan of pro wrestling and views it more as a job. Taker’s more dedicated than that. You never know. Taker does IMO deserve to retire first while Lesnar deserves to put over new talent.

      Regarding Hogan in 2002…yeah I remember what you’re talking about. That was at Backlash where Taker helped Hogan beat HHH. Being the heel Taker was, you;re right in saying he felt the older Hogan would be an easier match for him over HHH. Taker/Hogan matches were not interesting to me from a match standpoint. They had 3 to my knowledge. Survivor Series 91, Tuesday In Texas 91, Judgment Day 2002. In 91, Taker wasn’t able to display the in ring talent he head because of his character. Hogan wasn’t that talented as a wrestler, but didn’t need to be as his charisma was the ticket seller. I hated the ending to Tuesday in Texas, where Hogan blinded Taker and rolled him up in a pin for the win, and Judgment Day where Hogan botched the first Chokeslam.

      @anan
      what i mean by lesnar will retire first i mean , his contract will be over and he will not renew it with WWE and taker will still be there for wrestlemania
      this is what i think

    • Anan on March 29th, 2016 says:

      @yousif:

      You could end up being right. Maybe Lesnar won’t re-sign when his contract ends. Then again, maybe he will. Time will tell. Lesnar’s admittedly not a pro wrestling fan, didn’t watch it growing up. The first time he was WWE, he was a college senior and WWE was looking to hire him at the time. Lesnar’s got a hell of a deal with his contract – a lot of money as a part-timer. I don’t know if he makes more now than he did in UFC. But for a part-time talent, that’s a hello of a lot of money they’re paying him. That could persuade him to extend his contract. As the old saying goes, “What people would do for money.”
