Recently on WOOOOO! Nation, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair addressed a number of topics in a fan Q&A session. 'The Nature Boy' discussed former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins' knee injury, who on the current WWE roster should have been WWE World Heavyweight Champion by now, and which Superstars will make it to the finals of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship tournament at Survivor Series.
In regards to Rollins' injury, 'Naitch' said that Rollins will be relocating to Birmingham, Alabama for rehabilitation, much like Triple H did when he tore is left quadricep in 2001.
"Actually, Seth is doing the right thing. He's going to transfer the flag from Waterloo to Birmingham and stay there for at least two months of rehab, which is the best thing to do. That's what Hunter did. Hunter just moved right down there when he tore his quad the last time."
Flair stated that Rollins will probably make an appearance at WrestleMania 32, but will not wrestle until Summerslam 2016.
"I think they're looking at him, praying that he'll be back for Summerslam."
When asked what professional wrestler from the modern era should have been WWE World Heavyweight Champion by now, Flair claimed that Cesaro could be built up and presented as a legitimate threat to Brock Lesnar within two months.
"I feel like Cesaro, given the opportunity and with a vehicle to convey his thoughts, whether it be through himself or through a manager, which would be me, you could get him ready for Brock Lesnar in two months and the people would believe it. He's that strong and he's good [of] a performer. And he's that big. You're not going to bounce Cesaro around like a dart." Flair continued, "I think he could be a great opponent for Brock Lesnar. I mean, you'd need to stay on him because his work is phenomenal, he looks like a million bucks, and he's stronger than a horse in real life. He's really strong, strongest guy in the company, and that came right from John Cena."
As for which two WWE Superstars will reach the finals of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship tournament at Survivor Series, Flair expressed doubts over whether WWE would book a babyface versus babyface match in Roman Reigns versus Dean Ambrose.
"I don't think they're going to put Ambrose and Reigns [in the finals] because I don't know how the crowd would react to that. They're both kind of like fan favorites and it would be hard for them. I think they'd rather have a definitive good guy/bad guy [match]."
In this way, Flair suggested that Reigns is more likely to face Kevin Owens in the tournament finals.
"I would say Kevin Owens [will face Reigns in the finals] because Kevin's getting a huge reaction over here [in Europe]." Flair added, "we only have a couple [of] heels that are actually heels all the time. Kevin is one of them, Stephanie [McMahon] being the other."
In addition to these topics, Flair talked about how Evolution came together, when he found out he was going to win the 1992 Royal Rumble match, and much more.
