Flair talks to WTSP.com about his children wrestling and working out.

If you worry about getting hurt, you can’t be in this business. They’re both pretty tough, mentally and physically. Ashley may be the best athlete I’ve ever met. All the things she can do, her athletic ability. To be a Division 1 volleyball player, cheerleading and a gymnast. She’s 5-feet-11, weighs 150 pounds with 13 percent body fat.

Flair talks about his WWE retirement match against Michaels at Wrestlemania:

That night Shawn led the way not me, he wrestled for the both of us (laughs). I didn’t have a say with anything thing in that match which is a first, he actually had the balls to tell the Nature Boy to shut up and listen to him, they are big balls (laughs). The moment just before Shawn goes to sweet chin music me, and he mouths the words ‘I’m sorry’ that was just magical.
