Ric Flair on Andrade: “I think he is one of the top five guys in the business”
WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair recently spoke with Scott Fishman of TV Insider about a wide range of topics.
During the interview, he was asked about his future son-in-law, Andrade, and interacting with him on WWE television.
“I think he is one of the top five guys in the business. He is a great kid. I hope they continue to push him and [Angel] Garza. I like Garza a lot. I think Zelina [Vega] does a tremendous job when given the opportunity to talk. She also looks like a million bucks. She knows how to be a heel.
Both those kids Angel and Andrade can work. The sky’s the limit for them. It all depends on the direction the company goes in, but they’re really good. They’re solid. You can’t see through their work. Manny [Andrade] is really good. As big as he is, he can do what Rey Mysterio can do. I have a ton of respect for all of them. “
Andrade has found success in both NXT and Monday Night Raw. He became the NXT Champion before being called up to the main roster where he won the United States Title. After the middle of the road run on SmackDown, WWE moved him to Raw where he became one of the top faces on the show.
Flair also talked about the decline in WWE’s television ratings, working with Randy Orton, and more. You can read the entire interview here.
