Ric Flair and The Rock are two talented wrestlers that have been blessed with incredible charisma. The two pro wrestling legends never got to share a ring with each other and Flair shed light on what could have happened had they wrestled back in his era.
Kevin Hart welcomed the 71-year-old as his final guest of the latest season of his show “Cold As Balls”. During the chat, the record wrestling champion was asked about his opinion of The Brahma Bull. Hart shares a very candid relationship with the Hollywood actor after starring in four movies together which includes the Jumanji series.
Speaking about The Rock, Flair claimed that new arenas would have to be structured in order to seat the mind-boggling number of people that would pay to watch an encounter between them.
“He’s the deal,” he expressed. “He is the deal. [Hart talks about The Rock wrestling in Flair’s era], They would’ve had to build new arenas. When I see him, he’s so damn entertaining. He’s got skills where he can sing. He can play an instrument. I didn’t have that, but I had that energy.”
The Rock has faced several charismatic stars over the years such as John Cena. However, his most notable interaction with a charismatic wrestler in a ring would be the dream match against Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 18. The Toronto crowd were on their feet during the entire course of the match, and a similar reaction would have been in store had Flair faced The Rock.
Flair recalls his favourite wrestling memory
The retired wrestler was also asked about his fondest wrestling memory by host Kevin Hart. In response, Flair replied that his final match against Shawn Michaels ranks above the rest.
“I get asked that a lot, and there’s been so many, but it would have to be the match with Shawn,” he said. “It was great at 59 years old.”
The emotional roller-coaster of a match ended in a loss for the veteran as the Heart Break Kid hit a Sweet Chin Music to end the career of the 16-time world champion. Watch the entire interview right below:
