Two-time WWE Hall of Famer and 16-time World Champion Ric Flair recently spoke with GameSpot to promote the upcoming 30 for 30 documentary, which will highlight his life and career in the pro wrestling business.
During the interview, Flair was asked to name who he thinks is the best performer in WWE today. The 16-time World Champ said that it’s hard for him to name just one, so he named four: Randy Orton, AJ Styles, Seth Rollins, and his daughter, Charlotte Flair. He also went on to explain why each of the aforementioned four WWE stars could be the best performer in the company today.
“It’s one of four people: Randy Orton, A.J. Styles, my daughter, and Seth Rollins. I didn’t even have to think twice about that.
“Orton is just one of the most gifted guys I’ve ever seen. Orton brings the whole package. He’s 6’4?, phenomenal body, he’s a good talker and a phenomenal in-ring performer. Seth Rollins is the same, just a little bit smaller. A.J. is close to being Shawn Michaels in terms of work ethic. He’s really good and his interviews have gotten better. And then, my daughter…I’m not pushing her. She doesn’t need me to push her. You’ve seen her, she’s real good. The other girls just have a hard time keeping up with her.”
