Ric Flair was the first holder of the WCW World Heavyweight Championship and the WCW International World Heavyweight Championship (which he also held last). As the inaugural WCW World Heavyweight Champion, he became the first person to complete WCW's Triple Crown, having already held the United States Heavyweight and World Tag Team Championships.
He then completed WWE's version of the Triple Crown when he won the Intercontinental Championship, after already holding the WWF Championship and the World Tag Team Championship. During a recent interview with WrestlingInc.com, Flair spoke about R-Truth: “I love R-Truth.
Are you kidding me? That’s a whole different subject! I wasn’t even thinking in terms of R-Truth; R-Truth is fantastic. That whole thing [with the 24/7 Championship] is genius. I just think that Baron Corbin has been handed every ball that you can hand him and he’s pulled it off.
I mean, there’s a reason that he’s still there, and I think it’s because you can beat him and he’ll come out and act like a heel. He talks like nothing ever happened. I hate that they keep referring to the fact that he retired Kurt Angle and all that.
I didn’t like that but that’s only because I love Kurt Angle and have so much respect for him. All Corbin is doing is what he’s handed”.
