Ric Flair has an interesting view on what current WWE superstars would fill the roles of the 'Four Horsemen'.
Two-time Hall Of Famer Ric Flair, joined Baltimore's 98 Rock Morning Show with Justin, Scott and Spiegel earlier today. During the interview, Flair went over his '30 For 30' documentary, the lifestyle that he lived while on the road as an in-ring performer and even selected a modern day 'Four Horsemen' using the current stars on the WWE roster. On February 17th, Ric Flair, along with Barry Windham, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard & J.J. Dillion, will be present at the Maryland Championship Wrestling arena where fans will be able to meet the stable.
The original 'Four Horsemen' was led by manager J.J. Dillon and the group consisted of: Flair, Arn Anderson, Ole' Anderson and Tully Blanchard. The group is recognized as one of the best stables in wrestling history and Ric Flair himself, chose four superstars, currently on the WWE roster who he feels would fill the slots of being a "Horseman" perfectly.
"The first guy I would take is Dolph Ziggler. The second guy would be Seth Rollins. The third guy would be, let me think, for Horsemen that requires a lot. You have to be good at what you do, you have to be able to enjoy life. Let me think. God I haven’t had too much fun with him, but I’m sure he’d be great, Roman Reigns. Roman is a trooper, I got to be careful with what I say because God forbid anyone have any fun anymore. Oh God, he would run from me but Randy Orton for sure, but he is so married now and so laid back and having a good time. Make no mistake, Randy Orton right now is still the best wrestler in wrestling."
Flair having high praises for the former 9-time WWE Champion Randy Orton is no surprise, seeing as how Flair has known Orton since he was child and has taken part in grooming Orton into the superstar that he is today. Flair has also stated in numerous interviews that he is a huge fan of Dolph Ziggler and Ziggler himself, wrote an piece dedicated to Ric Flair, while Flair was dealing with his health scare.
