• Ric Flair Reveals How He’d Book WWE’s Top Storyline Of 2023
During an episode of his podcast, 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair discussed Cody Rhodes and his injury, and revealed how he’d book the return of The American Nightmare.
Below are the highlights:
Cody Rhodes’ future:
“Cody’s gonna be the champion sooner or later. I’m sure they’ll figure out a way to get that championship off where Roman has both of them — get one of them off him. I think the company functions better with two champions anyway.
Cody possibly returning to win the 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble Match:
“Absolutely, if that’s the time frame. Those things are very delicate. That tissue in there takes a long time to heal, and you can’t rush it. You’ve got to actually follow the doctor’s orders.”
If he’d book Cody to win the Royal Rumble and defeat Roman Reigns to become the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion:
“Yeah, unless somebody comes along miraculously. First of all, it’s hard to determine what they’re gonna do because there’s so many, with both companies [AEW and WWE] right now, moving parts.
Looking at it just from today, not knowing any more than I do as of this moment, that’s what I would do with Cody, yes.”
