Ric Flair has said that while he respects the WWE cruiserweights as athletes, they aren't better than his daughter Charlotte. The WWE Hall of Famer also said he would prefer to watch a Sasha Banks and Charlotte fight than watch wrestlers from the Raw brand's cruiserweight division fight.
The Nature Boy on The Ric Flair Show said he does not watch the Red brand's cruiserweight fights as it is "not what I look for to watch".
"I just feel like, first of all, I think Ashley [Charlotte] is a better athlete than the cruiserweights. Does that make sense? The cruiserweights are great, they're athletic, really nice guys, but they can't have a match better than Sasha [Banks] and Charlotte," the 67-year-old said.
Flair, who recently signed a new contract with the WWE, also discussed fights, he believes the wrestling entertainment company should book for WrestleMania 33, which will take place at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida on 2 April 2017.
"I would love to see Charlotte vs Ronda Rousey, which I think would be huge. I know she will be in the Main Event somewhere, and I think they can make that work, but as you and I both know, Ronda has to win, I just know that Charlotte will be in the Main Event somewhere," Flair said.
The former wrestler also said he would love to watch The Undertaker and John Cena fight at WrestleMania 33. If these two superstars fight at the pay-per-view event (PPV), the Deadman will emerge victorious as Cena has a "whole new life" and "he doesn't care", Flair said.
"I think Undertaker and Cena would be something I would love to see, but I can tell you this right now – if Cena and Taker wrestle, Undertaker would win. John has a whole new life, he doesn't care, he's the most giving guy in the world, as is Mark [Undertaker]," Flair said.
"I think the biggest match people want to see would be Shane McMahon vs. Hunter. That would knock you out your chair for sure. I can tell you right now, if Brock and Goldberg, which I think it is, it's going to be a lot different than what we saw last month," he added.
