Ric Flair Reveals He And Arn Anderson Aren’t Very Close Anymore

Sometimes time and distance can affect friendships in negative ways. One person who knows this, unfortunately, is Ric Flair.

One of professional wrestling’s most well known and notorious friendships is the one between Ric Flair and Arn Anderson. The former Four Horsemen members are no longer close according to Ric Flair. While he talked to Wrestling Inc. about how the two lost touch, it seems like he doesn’t particularly talk to any of his fellow Horsemen these days.

“That’s one of the reasons Arn and I aren’t close. How do you not text? We don’t do anything anymore. We don’t talk. When it’s close to his (Reid’s) birthday, I get emotional. Like I said, one of the greatest. It’s got nothing to do with business. You just struggle with the people who you think will be there for you, and the people that you don’t think will be there are. Nothing’s bigger than the love of your children.”

“I wasn’t just saying it about Arn. I didn’t hear a word from Tully, didn’t hear a word from Barry. I didn’t hear anything from Ole. He’s mad at the world. Arn just comes to mind because he was so close to the family. Then when I was sick, not a word. You spend 10 years being so close with these people, and you just wonder what really matters at the end of the day. It means nothing apparently.”

Even feelings like that hit the best of us. After all the decades and roads together, it’s sad to hear the state of one of the most timeless friendships and pairings in pro wrestling history. Here’s hoping Arn picks up the phone and reconnects.
