Ric Flair: “Roman Should Have Won”

Ric Flair wanted Roman Reigns to win in the main event of this past week’s Raw. During his podcast, he shared his thoughts about Finn Balor going over on Reigns.

“I thought Roman should have won,” He said, “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.”

Flair clarified his point with a caveat, “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 business. He’s as handsome as can be. He speaks well. He got his self-confidence back. He’s been through some ups and downs, which we all go through in life. But I mean, I’m just a big fan of his.”

The Nature Boy continued and possibly showed his age in expressing his perspective on the business.

“I just think you’ve got a legitimate heavyweight in Seth Rollins, a legitimate heavyweight in Roman Reigns,” He said, “And I don’t think we’ll ever see the day, and I could be totally wrong, that a cruiserweight will ever main event a WrestleMania. And that’s what you have to look at, I think, in the total picture of the business.”

Flair further impressed the point, “He’s of that size. I mean, if you look at the two of them side by side, he’s got a great physique, gosh, but he’s smaller. Yeah, I don’t think he weighs 200 pounds.”

Flair’s outlook resembles what Vince McMahon seemed stuck on the last couple years with the forced push of Reigns that was consistently rejected by fans. A push that was resisted so hard WWE started a new era just to rectify the damage.

And as for cruiserweights, Rey Mysterio won the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 22, though it wasn’t the final match.

Daniel Bryan won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 30 and it was the final match. Cruiserweight is 220 lbs or less. Bryan’s billed weight was 210.

So, it has happened before and there’s no reason to think it can’t happen again.

    Flair is an idiot. You can have the looks all day but if you don’t have
    the rest then it won’t do you any good. Times have changed. People
    don’t give a crap about how big someone is anymore. Impressive
    sometimes but not necessary. It is how they perform in the ring and how
    they connect with the people that matters now.
