Ric Flair and John Cena are two of the biggest names in World Wrestling Entertainment, and talk continues about when and if the latter can overtake Flair's title record.

The Nature Boy is a 16-time World Champion, leading the pack of title wins in wrestling history, but following just behind is the face that runs the place.

Cena is currently on 15 World Championship wins, and with plenty of steam left in the engine, it's heavily expected that he will eventually equal and even surpass Flair's tally.

Unlike Cena, Flair's title wins have come from numerous different promotions. His 16 titles are made up of eight NWA World Heavyweight Championships, six WCW World Heavyweight Championships, and two WWE World Heavyweight Championships.

We could be looking at the two being level as soon as next month, with Cena taking on AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Championship at SmackDown LIVE's next pay-per-view event No Mercy.

Although it's unlikely that Cena wins the match, given the fact his schedule away from WWE is rammed over the next few months, it's still expected that he will eventually tie Flair's tally of 16.

Recently, Flair participated in a Reddit AMA, which stands for 'Ask My Anything', and amongst a wide array of questions, the dirtiest player in the game was asked who he'd love to face in the current roster.

Of course, Flair's answer was to face John Cena, but not only that, have Cena defeat him and eclipse his title tally at the grandest stage of them all, WrestleMania.

Flair said: “It would be if John Cena wins my title, give me five months to get ready, and of course I’d put him over and he’d break the record.

"If they gave me until Mania to get in shape, I could give John a helluva match, put him over and it’d be worth it. And people would buy tickets to see that, too”

Despite Flair being 67-years-old, it's clear that he still has a passion for wrestling and is still ready to help WWE whenever possible.
