Ric Flair: Sid Vicious Wanted Me Gone From The Wrestling Business

The former Horsemen weren’t always on the same page

One of wrestling’s most notorious incidents was the backstage fight between Arn Anderson and Sid Vicious in 1993 during a WCW European tour, with Vicious stabbing Anderson 20 times with a pair of scissors.

Nearly 30 years have passed and it is still a shocking series of events, and now Ric Flair has shared a little more on the incident, claiming that Anderson and Vicious came to blows over The Nature Boy himself.

“I was there, I didn’t see it [The stabbing incident],” started Flair on the Wooooo Nation Uncensored podcast. “I get along with Sid [Vicious] now. I don’t even know why the conversation went the way it did. Arn was sticking up for me, because Sid kept saying ‘Flair is too old, he needs to move along’. I wasn’t even a champion.

“I think at that point in time, a few guys like Sid felt like I needed to be gone from the business. I’ve talked to Sid, I don’t bear any hard feelings towards him. He suffered one of the most horrific injuries that I’ve ever seen in a ring when he broke his leg in half. It was terrible, I’ll always have a special place in my heart for anyone who has been hurt that badly in the ring.”
