WWE teased a physical confrontation between Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan before the Crown Jewel PPV earlier this year. Though the angle never took place and the fans assumed that the company backed away from these plans because of the health of the involving stars.

However, during a recent interview with WrestlingInc, Ric Flair revealed that he was in fact cleared for physical activity at the event, but the angle was nixed.

The 16 Time World Champion claimed that it was Vince McMahon who nixed the angle and explained that sometimes if you are not physically involved, you feel like you are not giving everything you have:

“I got cleared medically to do something in Saudi and then Vince nixed it. If I would have fed Roman in that huge comeback he made, or tapped Hogan, that would have been the coup de gras.

You just wanna give them everything they paid for and sometimes if you’re not physically involved, you feel like you’re not giving everything you had if you’re not physical.”

After this revelation, Ric Flair was asked if getting cleared means that he can actually wrestle a match and replying to it, the former champion said yes but no.

He went on to detail his answer implying that in theory he can actually wrestle a match but it would take him a long time to get in that kind of shape and he could instead be involved in a spot or take a bump right now.
