Ric Flair will surely be remembered as one of the most important wrestlers in WWE history. In recent times, his role in Vince McMahon's federation has been, primarily due to age, quite more marginal but The Nature Boy represents the WWE with great experience and above all skill at the microphone in the course of its storylines.
Speaking recently in an interview with Fox Sports microphones, Ric Flair named who in his opinion are the three most important wrestlers in the federation and obviously, despite the storyline disagreements of the last few weeks, Ric has named his daughter Charlotte as first.
Here are his words about it: "I have often said it on TV and I repeat it, Charlotte is the greatest wrestler of all time. I think I am qualified enough to say this since in my long career I have seen all the wrestlers who have passed through the company.
Sometimes I just wish everyone would give her due credit. I also credit Sasha Banks, she is very good and is a hard worker. In this ranking, I would also put Asuka who has great technical skills but does not speak English well and this is a big problem to judge her in the company."
Ric Flair and Charlotte Flair in recent months
During the interview, Ric Flair dealt with different topics and also talked about how WWE has changed its attitude over the years regarding women's wrestling, in particular thanks to the revolution announced by Stephanie McMahon in 2015.
In recent weeks, the WWE legend has played a rather particular role but one that has aroused curiosity in the WWE Universe. Flair has in fact embarked on a story with Lacey Evans, wrestler of which The Nature Boy has also become the manager and has thus turned his back on his daughter Charlotte.
In the last episode of Monday Night Raw, however, we experienced one of the most 'trashy' moments of recent years with Lacey who got into the ring during the match and instead of fighting she announced that she was pregnant, just Ric Flair.
The wrestler is really pregnant and for this reason, she will have to be away from the ring for several months, but this was obviously just a storyline with Lacey Evans actually happily married and expecting her second child with her real husband.
Over the last few weeks, Ric Flair has been Lacey Evans' manager on WWE RAW and turned heel when he went up against Charlotte Flair. Charlotte Flair recently revealed in an interview that she was surprised by the current storyline and that "she didn't see it coming" It remains to be seen what will happen in this feud following Evans' pregnancy announcement.
