Flair the most one dimensional performer ever?

I know that smarks like to suckle from the diseased milk of Ric Flair's sagging tits, but surely you can admit this.

Ric Flair has never changed his character. Ric Flair in 2012 is the same Flair as 30 years ago.
Heel Flair is the exact same character, with the same moves and mannerisms as face Flair.

I know dumbasses will spout the usual garbage about how Flair never had to change and how you dont mess with the classics but this is a cop out.
Fans want change no matter the performer, it always gets stale. When WCW was pusing saggy tits Flair doing the same routine and WWF was pusing new, exiting fresh stuff with Attitude, who did the fans side with?

The TRUTH is that Flair cannot change because he is a one dimensional performer, who has cut the same promo and wrestled the same match through his entire career.

Austin, Rock, Taker, HBK, HHH, even Bret....all these guys made major changes throughout their career. Yet Rapist Flair never did.

Hulk Hogan, who is a bigger Icon than Saggy Teats ever was, changed everything about his character when he became Hollywood. From the look, the promos, the way he wrestled. And it revolutionized the business.

Re: Flair the most one dimensional performer ever?

I always find it funny when smarks complain that characters or gimmicks are unoriginal when someone like Flair literally stole an entire gimmick for his career. Took Buddy Rodgers name, moves, mannerism, everything. Flair has got to be the most unoriginal character ever.

And people complain about Ryback

Flair truly must be a wrestling god if even though he had a in your opinion stale gimmick he still got to be the Greatest wrestler of all time.

Re: Flair the most one dimensional performer ever?

Talk about exaggeration and oversimplification. One dimensional? Maybe, although without ever changing character there have been many different facets and subsequent stories told. All memorable.

You might not like Flair and that's valid, but he's considered one of the all-time greats with good cause.


I love professional-wrestling.

Re: Flair the most one dimensional performer ever?

Bossdude, not sure what you are thinking? You are either....

a.) A Hulk Hogan/WWF mark who resents the fact that people consider Flair the GOAT
b.) You grew up watching an older Flair, and his ridiculous antics at age 60
c.) You are trolling

But I do know you are grasping at straws. You should listen to supposed "dumbasses" because their argument makes more sense.

Fans don't always want change, if the original product is what they like.
Coke Classic
Star Wars
What happened when someone went and messed with those products?

When you have something that transcends change you become a real legend.
Dude if you wanted to just start a Hogan is better than Flair argument then go ahead and do that. But calling one of the most dynamic in ring performers, who could do it all...one dimensional? Come on you are better than that.

Flair never had to change a thing because he had a timeless gimmick that people continued to love. Hogan on the other hand was forced to turn heel because he was getting booed. Hogan turning him heel saved his career.

Took the gimmick and made it so good that people make rap songs about Ric Flair.

Almost everything is copied and recycled in wrestling, btw.
