Ric Flair is the biggest star that has ever been created within the professional wrestling business.
The 68-year-old has cultivated a legacy over a career that spans 40 years. He is noted for his tenure with the NWA, WCW, the WWE and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA).
He is a 16-time world champion (eight-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion, six-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, and two-time WWF Champion).
Keep in mind that the actual number of his world championship reigns varies by source, ranging from 16 to 25.
The WWE Hall of Famer had been in the fight of his life in late August due to him being hospitalized. He continues to recover from his health scare.
For those might not know, Flair's fiancee took him to the hospital on August 11th after Flair complained about stomach pains.
Then just hours later, the WWE Legend was in the early stages of kidney failure and was on life support days later.
Doctors told Charlotte Flair and the rest of the family at one point that he only had a 20% chance to survive.
Flair was recently a guest on Baltimore’s 98 Rock Morning Show with Justin, Scott, and Spiegel.
During the interview, he was asked to choose a modern version of the Four Horsemen using current WWE stars. Here is what the WWE Hall of Famer had to say (h/t to Cageside Seats):
“The first guy I would take is Dolph Ziggler. The second guy would be Seth Rollins”
“The third guy would be, let me think, for Horsemen that requires a lot. You have to be good at what you do. You have to be able to enjoy life. Let me think.
God I haven’t had too much fun with him, but I’m sure he’d be great Roman Reigns. Roman is a trooper.
I got to be careful with what I say because God forbid anyone have any fun anymore. (laughs) Oh God, he would run from me but Randy Orton for sure.
But he is so married now and so laid back and having a good time. Make no mistake Randy Orton right now is still the best wrestler in wrestling.”
