The perfect Ric Flair promo


Recommended Posts

I will say this, even when Ric was full blown heel, all the TBS announcers looked like they were having the time of their lives when Ric was cutting a promo.

That was amazing, but I don't know if it's quintessential enough to deserve the p-word. Then again, it depends on your definition.

Its quintessential perfection lies in how wonderfully Flair frames his persona. He's a pretty boy heel and patriotic American baby face all at once. He's unctuous and snarky to the point where Schiavone is losing his shit. He loves the ladies and hates cheap imitations. Don't try to wrap him up before he's good and ready and never, EVER try to follow his act.

Great promo.There are so many other things this shows.

 

1) The Horseman really needed JJ to get their All-For-One stuff over. Ric talked so much trash on Tully. There's no way they mend fences unless you have a smooth operator like JJ figuring out how to engineer it (with his financial acumen, of course). JJ was still a while away from moving up from wearing goofy tuxedos and managing B-level dudes to wearing the slick suits befitting the corporate officer of Tully Blanchard Enterprises.

 

2)  I bet Will Ferrell has a few thousand of those page views so he could get in character for Ashley Schaeffer. That was the most Ashley Schaeffer Motors thing ever.
