• “He’s Ric Flair now” – WWE Hall Of Famer On Chris Jericho
WWE Hall Of Famer Diamond Dallas Page was recently interviewed by DAZN, where he talked about fellow WCW/WWF Legend Chris Jericho, who wrestles for Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling since the company started in 2019.
Here’s what DDP said about Y2J:
“To me, Chris Jericho is the most over guy in professional wrestling. He’s Ric Flair. He’s Ric Flair now. He’s got 30 years, he’s still on top, he continues to reinvent himself, and he can still work his a$$ off.
They’re singing his song. That’s got to be the greatest compliment ever. To me, it’s the greatest entrance in wrestling because the people are so involved with it.”
Speaking of Jericho and Flair, Erik Beaston wrote an article for Bleacher Report in 2020, titled “Why AEW’s Chris Jericho Is the Current GOAT of Professional Wrestling” (G.O.A.T means Greatest Of All Time).
Ric Flair, who considers himself “The Man” and the greatest professional wrestler of all time, came across this 2 year old article and wrote the following about it on Twitter:
“You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me! First, It Was THE MAN, And We Know Who Won That! They Still Don’t Own It! And Now I Have To Deal With This!!! @erikbeaston, Have You Lost Your Mind? Good Lord!”

Flair is referring to his feud with WWE over Becky Lynch using “The Man” trademark, as Flair wasn’t happy about it and wanted to be paid for it.
