Speaking on The Ric Flair Show, Ric Flair talked about one of the biggest stories in the WWE and the UFC at the moment, the anti-doping violations involving Brock Lesnar.
The Beast failed two USADA drug tests and is likely to receive a two-year suspension by the UFC, however, the WWE has chosen not to suspend him from their company as he is only a part-time performer and therefore isn't under the Talent Wellness policy like full-timers.
It's ridiculous reasoning I know, and a lot of people will agree with you, but The Nature Boy has a different outlook on the situation, which relates slightly more to WWE's decision not to suspend Lesnar.

He said according to Wrestling Inc: "After watching that [fight at UFC 200], I don't care what anybody was on. Brock Lesnar dominated [Mark Hunt]. It's like people talking about PEDs with baseball players, right? I promise you, they do not help hand/eye coordination.
"If you hit the ball, it might go farther, but there's nothing you can put in the needle and inject in your body that's going to make your hand/eye coordination [better]. I could take steroids for 150 years and not hit a 100 mile [an hour] fastball.
"If anything, over the years, PEDs were used for appearance sakes and God knows I have some huge cosmetic issues. I should have been on it forever. But I can tell you this: this in no way, shape, or form makes Brock Lesnar a star. Does that make sense? I mean, he's a huge, huge player there."
So it currently looks like The Beast Incarnate will be facing The Viper Randy Orton at SummerSlam. However, this decision only amplifies - alongside Flair's quotes - the rumor that there is a two-tier system in the WWE when it comes to punishments because Lesnar is a star, a star that will make the company a lot of money, and therefore is exempt from suspensions or financial penalties.
