• Ric Flair Doesn’t Want Randy Orton To Break His Record Anymore
As we reported before, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair appeared at last night’s NWA 73 pay-per-view, which was the National Wrestling Alliance’s 73rd anniversary show.
Last year on RAW, when Randy Orton was feuding with Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship, Flair told Orton that he wants him to break his record of 16 World Title wins.
However, during last night’s PPV, Flair said that he now wants his daughter, Charlotte Flair, to break his record.
Here’s what Ric said last night:
“I wanted Randy to break my record, until The Queen went 12. That’s only 4 away, so here’s to The Queen!”
Orton is currently a former 14-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion, while Charlotte Flair is a 12-time WWE Women’s Champion (currently holding the RAW Women’s Championship).
You can watch Flair’s great promo from last night in the following videos:
