• Ric Flair Reveals Who Is The Greatest Worker In Wrestling Today & Of All Time
2-Time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair was recently interviewed by RAW Commentator Corey Graves on the After The Bell podcast.
Below are the highlights:
On who is the greatest worker of all time:
“I don’t think twice. The greatest performer in our business of all time is Shawn Michaels. That’s hard to argue. He can work both ways. You know, he’s a phenomenal babyface and all that, but when he was younger, Shawn can be a prick, which made it real and it came across.
I mean, Shawn is the first guy to do the moonsault and all that. If you think about it, those matches he had with Taker, even despite their size difference.
Literally, he carried me in that match [at WrestleMania 24]. So I think that I had a lot of influence on the young guys, like him and Hunter and that, and certainly, there’s a place for me in that, but I can’t ever tell you that my skill was that of Shawn Michaels.”
On who is the greatest worker in pro-wrestling today:
“I’m gonna say this as boldly as I can. I think the best worker in the business right now is my daughter (Charlotte Flair). There’s a very big case for that.
She’s 5-foot-11 and weighs 150 pounds. Does that make sense? She does that corkscrew moonsault. I mean, she studies it. She has studied it where she understands that one good punch or one good kick looks better than 10. She dresses the part. She just wants to be the best.
I mean guys, I don’t have to tell you about her athletic ability. She could have gone to college and played four different division one sports. She chose volleyball, but if she wanted to play basketball, she could have. She hated basketball.
If she wanted to be a cheerleader, she could have, and the other was track and field. In the ninth grade, she ran a 5:13 mile.”
