WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair knows a thing or two about when a wrestling promotion is firing on all cylinders. Flair has been involved in some of the most memorable wrestling stories and promotions of all time. He spoke recently on his To Be The Man podcast about the current state of WWE, and how hot the promotion seems right now.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
Discussing The Bloodline story at the Royal Rumble: “I loved it. What I like about it the most is it’s unpredictable. You knew something was gonna happen, but you didn’t know what. I watched that promo in Philadelphia [on Raw XXX], which was very entertaining. Sami Zayn, he’s good. That really defined him the other night, doing that. He hit Roman hard, so it looked good. Roman’s a brick s***house anyway, so it didn’t hurt him. But the way he hit him, as hard as he hit him, people stood up and went, ‘Holy shit.’ That’s what it’s all about. WWE right now is in such a hot position where everything’s clicking on such a positive note. It’s insanity. Everything is just boom, boom, boom. It’s incredible.”
The groove that WWE is in right now: “They’re not missing a beat, and I don’t even hear people talk about AEW, and I’m pretty easy to find. I watch it, but when the WWE gets themselves on a roll like this, it just seems like everything else just pales in comparison. I’m not taking anything away from AEW. It’s just, when it’s clicking like this, between Roman and ‘The Queen,’ and the stuff with Becky and Bayley is really good, and Sami Zayn and The Usos, these kids, they’ve all been on top. Rhea has been on top, but not like she is now. She’s put herself in a whole new position, and I’m sure she’s just overwhelmed with excitement, just at the opportunity to be there. It’s Los Angeles, just the word ‘LA,’ they’re right in the entertainment capital of the world, and it’s already sold out I think both nights. I can’t wait to get there to watch it.”
