Found August 22, 2013 on Wrestling Truth:
PLAYERS: Ric Flair
WWE can’t be that upset with Ric Flair going off on one at the WWE 2K14 Symposium because they’ve uploaded the full panel discussion on to their Youtube Channel. Prior to them doing this it sat unpromoted on Twitch.TV – so it clearly wasn’t the “embarrassment” some sites made it out to be, now that WWE are prepared to showcase it to their thousands and thousands of subscribers. In fact as a fan it’s the kind of content many of us crave – laid back, candid and unscripted wrestling talk. Somebody needs to produce a regular podcast like this! Flair didn’t say anything particularly controversial, he was just having fun. If anyone was an embarrassment it was the host Jim Ross, who made several distasteful jokes and allowed the panel to get way off track. Not that anyone outside of the PG suits at Stamford care. It was hilarious! And judging by the upload they don’t care anyway. It’s perfect viral marketing for the game. Check it out below if you had problems with the Twitch.TV stream as some users reported. For those that enjoyed JR’s true personality shining through, check out this classic leaked video of Oklahoma’s own chatting off air in his younger days, about women and smoking and all things young men should be talking about…
