On a recent edition of the “Everyone Talks to Liz Clamon” podcast, 16-time World Champion Ric Flair reflected on the injuries he carried through matches during his illustrious career.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:


On continuing to book matches while injured: “You just went through it. I worked with a torn rotator cuff for over a year. Actually, I tore both [shoulders]. Finally, I got to the point where I couldn’t take the pain anymore. Then, I had one [shoulder] operated on and waited four years later to have the other [shoulder] operated on.”

On how he sustained the dual shoulder injuries: “One of them was [when] Randy Savage jumped off a top rope, and by accident, hit my rotator cuff. The other one was … I can’t remember … it was nobody’s fault, it was just wear and tear.”

On his current health after the fact: “I’m not hurt anywhere. I’m as flexible as I’ve ever been. I’ve got friends that — I just saw Hulk [Hogan] … I hate to throw his name in there, but he’s had 11 back operations, his hips and knees replaced. I can’t think of a guy in my timeframe who doesn’t have body part replacements.”
