The first post-draft edition of Monday Night Raw was a big one, with so much happening on the show.

Sasha Banks won the WWE Women's Championship after making Charlotte tap out in the middle of the ring to the Banks Statement, while Stephanie McMahon announced the creation of a Universal Championship which seems to be Raw's own main title with Dean Ambrose having the WWE Championship on SmackDown.

Seth Rollins was announced as one of the contenders for the title, while Finn Balor beat Roman Reigns on his main roster debut to become the other man to challenge for the title. One WWE legend doesn't agree with that, however.

Speaking on the most recent edition of his podcast 'The Ric Flair Show', the 16-time World Champion said that Reigns should've gone over Balor rather than the Irishman coming away from Raw as the winner.

"I thought Roman should have won," Flair said, h/t Wrestling Inc. "And I know Finn Bálor to say 'hi' only. I'm a big fan of Roman Reigns. And I'll be honest with you: Finn Bálor reminds me of 'The Dynamite Kid'."

What Flair is basically saying is that it doesn't matter how good of a wrestler Finn Balor is, he just doesn't have the look of a main eventer.

"I think Roman, to me, has one of the greatest looks ever in the [professional wrestling] business. He's as handsome as can be. He speaks well. He got his self-confidence back."

"[Roman] has been through some ups and downs, which we all go through in life, but, I mean, I'm just a big fan of his."

So, Ric Flair is a mark for Roman Reigns and thinks he deserves a win more than Finn Balor. Wow.
