Ric Flair names his top stars.
Steve Austin was back on WWE Raw this past Monday, opening the show by moderating a contract signing and closing the show with a beer bash. The next day on Busted Open Radio, Ric Flair joined the program to give his thoughts on Austin's return to Madison Square Garden and how he overshadows the rest of the roster.
"If the guys aren't careful, [the women] are gonna end up main eventing WrestleMania again," stated Flair. "Cause Stone Cold aint wrestling. Steve, in my estimation, will always be the biggest star in the history of the business. The three biggest being Hulk [Hogan], Steve, and Undertaker. They're three names that have drawn huge amounts of money. When you send Steve out there, just like they did at Raw Reunion, what are you gonna do? He's unbelievable. To think that his career ended 10 years too early. I saw more Steve Austin shirts in the audience than I saw the rest of the crew. He's too much."
Austin has always been very complimentary of Flair, often referring to him as "the greatest of all-time." You can view Austin's full comments on Flair by clicking here.
