• WWE Hall Of Famer Puts Over The Undertaker Big Time
During a recent interview with Wrestling Travel, two time WWE Hall of Famer “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair talked about how he would like to face on the current WWE roster, who would be on his Mount Rushmore of Wrestling & more.
Below are the highlights:
On who he would like to face on the current WWE roster:
“I’d love to wrestle Roman Reigns. I’d like to be a bad guy against Roman if I was 35 or 40 years old. They couldn’t afford to pay me though [laughs].”
On who would be on his Mount Rushmore of Wrestling:
“I think because of time put in, I’m in that category. But I’d have to go with Hulk, Stone Cold and The Undertaker. I know people are gonna say I should put Andre the Giant in. But I actually think The Undertaker has had as big a run and as big an impact on the business without having to be champion and just being the character.
No. 1 he’s a great guy. No. 2 it’s the most unique and greatest gimmick in the history of our business. He’s got sick of it a couple of times and changed it around. But at the end of the day, whether it’s riding a motorcycle or getting out of a coffin, it’s the greatest gimmick I’ve ever seen.”
