​Ric Flair Discusses The WWE Draft, Reigns Being Forced To Apologize To The WWE Locker-Room


During the most event edition of his podcast, The Ric Flair Show. WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair discussed the WWE Brand Split, only having one event title and more. Here are some highlights:

On this week’s WWE Brand Spilt & Draft: “I think it’s great. I hope that everyone can stay healthy because it’s going to require a lot of depth on the roster. If everyone’s healthy, it’ll be awesome. It’s great. It gets people talking. The fact that they’re talking about it now and it’s still a week and a half away, it’s pretty cool, so I think it’ll be awesome.”

On WWE only only having one main event World title: “I would have one world champion in both divisions. I mean, one champion for each. I would leave the format the way it is with the championship belts. Either [have the champions travel back and forth between the brands] or only on pay-per-views. Does that make sense? I don’t know, but there’s got to be a way to do it. I feel like if they make other champions in each brand, they’re going to dilute it a little bit.”

On who WWE should build their brands around: “There are five or six guys that are imperatively important to either brand and you’re starting out with Roman [Reigns], Dean [Ambrose], Seth [Rollins], John Cena, Randy Orton’s coming back, if Hunter works, boom. I mean, I’m leaving some people out, but, AJ Styles, I mean, the depth chart is very important. Randy coming back, as I mentioned, is huge. I don’t think he starts back till SummerSlam.”

On Roman Reigns having to apologize to the locker room for his WWE Wellness Policy suspension: “I don’t remember ever seeing that. And I don’t know. Did that actually take place? To be honest with you, without talking to those guys, which I haven’t, I don’t feel comfortable commenting because I just know that there had to be a reason.”
