WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair was a recent guest on the Wrestling Inc. Daily where the Nature Boy was asked who he thinks is his daughter Charlotte’s best opponent. The former 16-time world champion named fellow horsewoman Sasha Banks, stating that the two have unbelievable chemistry and comparing The Boss to one of his greatest rivals, Ricky Steamboat.
Snoop Dogg and I were talking the other day and I have to still go with Sasha. When I see Sasha, I call her Ricky Steamboat,” revealed Flair. “I go, ‘How you doing Ricky?’ They have this unbelievable chemistry. The only argument between the two of them is who’s gonna be the bad guy because they both like that role. Whichever way they do it, they make incredible music and have incredible matches. I could watch them wrestle for 30-40 minutes without taking a deep breath.
Flair later adds that by the time Charlotte’s career is done, she’ll have created historic rivalries with a number of different talents.
By the time she’s done, she’ll have 3-4 people like with me and Dusty, Sting, Harley Race and Ricky Steamboat. What I keep telling her is that she’s being measured against greatness every time. She’s held in that regard and esteem. She looks at it as, ‘I’m just gonna go out there and have the best match.
