Ric Flair Issues Apology to Jim Herd, Eric Bishoff, & Vince Russo Over “Three-Headed Monster” Comments Blaming Them for WCW’s Demise

As noted before, WWE Hall of Famer and wrestling legend Ric Flair recently blamed Jim Herd, Eric Bischoff, and Vince Russo for being the key people responsible in killing WCW in response to VICE TV’s new Who Killed WCW? docuseries.

Flair recently issued an apology on Twitter to Herd, Bischoff, and Russo over his comments blaming them for WCW’s demise and stated that he had unfairly judged them without knowing the inner workings and behind-the-scenes issues they had to deal with on the corporate end of the company.

“A Very Important Person In My Life Reminded Me Yesterday That Twitter Is The Weakest Form Of Communication. I Want To Take This Opportunity To Apologize To Jim Herd, @EBischoff, And @THEVinceRusso

Because I Really Don’t Know. I Unfairly Judged You Without Knowing The Inner Workings And Behind The Scenes Of The Business On The Corporate End With People You Had To Report To And Work With. I Wish On A Personal Note That All 3 Of Us Could Have Worked Together And Had Better Relationships! For Vince Calling Me The GOAT, I Appreciate That & You Did Help My Son To Pursue His Dream In Wrestling. I Am Going To Do Eric Bischoff’s Podcast, But It Won’t Be To Bury Anybody. It’s To Discuss Our Differences! @TheRock

Is Making A Movie On My Life, And I’m In A Great Place! I Hope This Can All Be Put Behind Us!”
