WWE News: Ric Flair reveals he wouldn't want to be Brock Lesnar's opponent
Two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric ‘The Nature Boy’ Flair recently did an interview with The Sport Bible to discuss a variety of topics including who he would like to work with today if he was still an in-ring competitor, how he reacted when his daughter Charlotte decided to join follow in his footsteps into the industry of professional wrestling, and his thoughts on ‘The Best’ Brock Lesnar as an overall dominant athlete.
Flair was first asked who he would want to step into the ring with on today’s ‘New Era’ roster with stars today such as Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, and so many more talented athletes on the roster:
"I really like Seth [Rollins], I'd love to work with him."
Flair’s daughter Charlotte, who has had a tremendous amount of success since joining the WWE, is one of the most dominant athletes on the roster overall today. The former multiple time Women’s champion is certainly carving out a path for herself in the business, and her father admitted it would have been hard to persuade her out of it if he had tried:
"It would be very hard to deny her because of her ability, she's also a very diligent -- I mean yesterday after that long trip overseas last week, she went home slept about six or seven hours, first thing she did when she got up, went to the gym. Me, the first thing I would've done was gone to the bar, and not to bed, all day."
The former member of The Four Horseman was then asked for his opinion on former UFC heavyweight champion and multiple time WWE champion Brock Lesnar, who has been extremely dominant as of late since making his return to the WWE in the past few years:
"Oh god he may be one of the greatest athletes I've ever seen in my life. He's incredibly strong and incredibly gifted. Just the fact that he can do that 38 inch vertical jump at 290 pounds when he jumps into the ring -- I wouldn't want to be his opponent in the ring when he misses that."
