• WWE Hall Of Famer Thinks Andrade Is One Of The Top 5 Wrestlers In The World Currently
While speaking to TV Insider, 2-Time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair praised RAW wrestler and his future son-in-law, Andrade’s in-ring work.
Below is what he said:
“I think he is one of the top five guys in the business. He is a great kid. I hope they continue to push him and [Angel] Garza. I like Garza a lot. I think Zelina [Vega] does a tremendous job when given the opportunity to talk. She also looks like a million bucks. She knows how to be a heel.
Both those kids Angel and Andrade can work. The sky’s the limit for them. It all depends on the direction the company goes in, but they’re really good. They’re solid. You can’t see through their work. Manny [Andrade] is really good. As big as he is, he can do what Rey Mysterio can do. I have a ton of respect for all of them.”
