Jeff Jarrett cuts a promo on Ric Flair calls him “an active alcoholic”

During his My World podcast, Jeff Jarrett cut a promo on Ric Flair to promote the upcoming Ric Flair’s Last Match PPV. Jarrett will be teaming up with Jay Lethal against Flair and Andrade El Idolo. Jarrett said the following about the angle to set up the match…

“I came to do a job. I do it every time I step up to the plate. Wasn’t a lot of fun reading the research from Derek. He did a hell of a job on this, but we’re gonna do this podcast, Conrad, but I can assure you, I’m gonna say some things today that you don’t want to hear about your father-in-law because everybody glosses over the real Ric Flair. Everybody glosses the Nature Boy. Everybody glosses over. If you want to go right for the jugular, let’s go. He’s an active alcoholic! And if you want me to go there, I’ll go there.”

“Conrad, I tried to help your father-in-law up. I said literally, ‘Jay, don’t do this.’ I get why Jay’s slighted. Look, if you really want to get right down to it, who’s the one who took Jay Lethal out of New Jersey and said, ‘Jay, you’ve got a spot in TNA’? Guess who got him fired at TNA? Ric, Hulk [Hogan], Eric [Bischoff]. These are partners.”

“He [Flair] came begging for a job in TNA because he had 18 wives 3,000 payments to be made, and Uncle Sam was breathing down his throat. And he had a wonderful retirement match in Orlando in WrestleMania, and then all of the sudden, he’s going to come back, and say, ‘Hey! I want a job!’ You want to talk about egomaniac, Hulk Hogan is debuting January of 2010 and then Ric’s going to start the same night? How much sense [does that make]?” (quotes courtesy of
