On the 4th episode of The Ric Flair Show on MLW Radio, Ric Flair discussed the post-draft Raw and SmackDown episodes with his co-host, Conrad Thompson. He stated how he was happy to see Dolph Ziggler getting an opportunity at the WWE World Championship against Dean Ambrose at Summerslam, stating that it was long overdue.

However, he did not feel the same about Finn Balor, as he believed Roman Reigns should have been the one to win the bout between them on the main event of Raw. Flair said:

"I thought Roman should have won. And I know Finn Bálor to say 'hi' only. I'm a big fan of Roman Reigns. And I'll be honest with you: Finn Bálor reminds me of 'The Dynamite Kid'. Does that make sense? They're very similar in appearance, same kind of work, and, I mean, he's a great performer.

“God, I'm certainly not taking anything away from his performance or the match, but I'm a fan of Roman Reigns, so I'm saying something that I'm partial about. I think Roman, to me, has one of the greatest looks ever in the [professional wrestling] business. He's as handsome as can be. He speaks well. He got his self-confidence back. He has been through some ups and downs, which we all go through in life, but, I mean, I'm just a big fan of his.

“That doesn't take anything away from Finn Bálor and where I think where I see Dolph against [Dean Ambrose] as being huge at SummerSlam, I see that as being a bigger match than to see Finn Bálor versus Seth Rollins. I just think Seth [has] got too much experience. And like I said before about Randy, Seth Rollins  is the second Randy Orton. He's that good."

According to Flair, Bálor is too physically small to main event a WrestleMania, observing the ancient norm that a Cruiserweight should never headline the Showcase Of Immortals.
