Referee Brian Hebner Announces His Departure From NWA

Brian Hebner Voices Concern About Ric Flairs In-Ring Return: What The F**k Are You Thinking?

During the latest episode of Refin It Up with Brian Hebner, Hebner discussed Ric Flairs return to in-ring action.

Its been announced the match will happen on July 31 at the Starrcast event in Nashville, TN. The rumor is it will be FTR & Flair vs. Rock N Roll Express and a mystery partner. He noted the match will be announced on Monday.

Ric Flair, I love you, but what the fu*k are you thinking?, Hebner exclaimed. This man is 73 years old. He has a pacemaker and is not in the best of health or in the best of shape. Im sorry. I dont see anything exciting about this to me at all. Nothing.

Now if he was coming out in gimmick to walk down the aisle with his daughter or something like that, fine. This, to me, is ridiculous. It really is, he continued.

I know how my father is, and I can almost bet you my father is in better health than Ric Flair. Theyre probably equal on alcoholic. But I can tell you right now, I see my dad do his thing, which is nowhere near what Ric Flair is going to have to do, which is take a bump, get up, feed, or whatever hes going to do.

Like I said, I love Ric Flair, but I think this is going to tarnish more than its going to be helping his legacy. Im just not excited about it. I really think its stupid. If its about money, I guess you got to do what you got to do, but to me, theres nothing positive about this. Not one thing.
