• “He has unlimited talent” – Ric Flair Praises WWE Main Eventer
On a recent episode of his weekly ‘Wooooo Nation Uncensored’ podcast, Old School NWA/WCW/WWF Legend Ric Flair talked about WWE’s current booking of Kevin Owens and went on to praise the former Universal Champion.
Here’s what The Nature Boy said:
“I think the world of Kevin Owens. He’s a respectful, nice guy. He has unlimited talent. He has a hell of an interview. Before he ever used the Stunner, he called Steve [Austin] and asked him. That’s respect.
I did a segment with him on a Thanksgiving Starrcade show. It was the Kevin Owens’ KO show, and he asked me, ‘What do you want to talk about?’ I said, ‘Hey, you’re the boss.’ He said, ‘You’re Ric Flair.’ I said, ‘That doesn’t mean anything to me right now. We’ll talk about whatever you want to talk about.’
He’s a very respectful kid with a ton of talent. He takes these huge bumps and all that. I’m happy for him and I wish him nothing but success. He’s a great guy.”
Kevin Owens will challenge for Big E’s WWE Championship at the upcoming WWE Day 1 PPV in a Fatal 4-Way match, that also includes Seth Rollins and Bobby Lashley.
