Flair's argument for Bret not drawing money is ridiculous lol. He's not a big star because he never went to St Louis and never wrestled Broody or Hansen. WTF is he talking about; that's not even Bret's era lol. By that logic I guess Steve Austin is not a star . Bret drew alight for what he had to work with. The WWF at the time was at a all time creative low. The poor guy had to try an draw wrestling Isaac Yankeem and Bob Backlund. As far as WCW goes they dropped the ball with Bret. Flair should not run his mouth. He did not draw his first time in WWF or during the Monday night wars.

Bret Hart as the champ saved the WWE after the steroid trial whereas nothing happened when Ric Flair was on top. I personally don't care about who is a draw and who isn't as a fan, but Bret Hart had to carry the company through a lot of bs and he did it better than anyone.
at least bret was original. Ric flair stole everything from other people. His music, his name, his robe, his whoooo

Ric Flair hates everybody. I think he probably resents having to put Bret over for the title back when Bret was just a mid-card guy. A B+ player, if you will.

How in the hell do you say flair wasn't a draw ? The man drew more money in the 80's than anyone not named Hogan.

Anybody hating on the Excellence of Execution can hang themselves.....Flair included. He is one of the most overrated wrestlers ever. Damn near all his matches and spots were the same. Even his "5 Star" classics ( versus Race and Steamboat) are not as great as wrestling historians would like to claim. As far as who was and still is greater between him and Bret, it's not even close. Bret is light years better the Ric Flair and the greatest wrestler of ALL times.

Dick Flair is a bitter old man.
Ric Flair had the same match every night and killed one territory after another.

I don't want to fight with anybody here - everyone is entitled to their opinions and I respect them. But in MINE, this fuckin' guy is the most overrated man in the history of the industry, and he'll cut down just about anybody but HBK or (and ESPECIALLY) HHH while telling everyone who'll listen that he was the greatest of all time even though he's been having the same match since before he even got to ripping off Buddy Rodgers' gimmick.  If he wants to talk drawing, how come HIS initial run in the WWF is barely remembered or talked about? And since he's asking about Bret, why did McMahon let HIM go anyway? He drew so well as champ that he dropped the belt to Hart at a non-televised event... His coming over to the WWF with the NWA belt was more memorable than anything else he did there. Then he went back to WCW and was just so over that nobody noticed that he was let go and was gone for a fair portion of the hottest period in the history of the business, and before that, the only time he'd ever get decent pops was when they were in the Carolinas or Georgia - everywhere else they went the fans were going wild to see him get laid out by the nWo (who, of course, were the worst faction and angle ever....according to him).
