Ric Flair Says Jay Lethal Has An Attitude, Won't Be Involved At His Retirement Show

No Jay Lethal at Ric Flair's retirement show

While Jay Lethal has been helping Ric Flair train for his final match inside the squared circle, the AEW talent will not be on the card of 'Ric Flair's Last Match' on July 31, according to The Nature Boy.

Speaking on his To Be The Man podcast with son-in-law Conrad Thompson, Flair said Lethal has an attitude before the 16-time world champion claimed he couldn't book talents on his own retirement show. 

"Is he gonna hear this if I say it? I don't care. He's got an attitude. He wants to be part of the show. And I said ain't gonna happen. You know, that happens all of a sudden everybody's feelings are hurt. You know, this is what we talked about, what we discussed, some people's feelings are gonna be hurt," Flair began.

After Thompson said he thinks the world of Lethal, Ric added: "I do too. I'm not saying anything bad. It's just, I don't have the authority or, even though I am the co-owner I guess, co-owner of this venture, I don't have the authority to put him on the card...So I think he's upset about that, but he'll get over it. I don't, there's not been a falling out. I just, you know, I just told him like it is. I don't have the ability. I don't. I suppose I have the influence to make something happen, but from what I understand he doesn't fit on the card. I'm sorry. It's not a falling out on my part, I promise."
