Ric Flair is considered by many to be one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, and throughout the course of his career he’s worked with some of the biggest names in the business.
Flair spent a number of years working alongside Randy Orton and he recently told talkSPORT that he thinks Orton is the number one guy in WWE.
“Nobody is higher on Randy Orton than I am. I think, right now, he is doing some of the best work he has ever done and I think Edge is too. Randy has done and accomplished so much and he’s been there a long time – people don’t realise this. But every time he says something, it’s the truth. And his level of ability right now and his health are both great. He’s at the top of his game, which, in my opinion, makes him the number one guy.”
Flair went on to joke that he hopes Randy Orton retires soon so he can get another Hall of Fame ring, a reference to a possible Evolution induction.
“The thing about Randy is, he’s so good that I think just because he’s been there for so long you think ‘gosh, can he get any better?’ and he just continues [to get better] if given the opportunity to shine. But I hope he retires soon so I can get my third ring [laughs]. But he’s a great talent, really, really good and an important part of WWE’s TV.”
