Ric Flair Wants ROH Star In WWE, Says Seth Rollins Should Be A Heel

Ric Flair thinks the WWE is in good hands with the high level talent, but wants a familiar foe to show up in the company.

The 16-time champion Flair was interviewed by Sports Illustrated recently, and made no bones about it -- he wants former ROH World Champion Jay Lethal in WWE. The two feuded in TNA years ago, which produced memorable tv.

“I do wish that Jay Lethal was in WWE,” said Flair. “He’s an incredibly nice guy, and he’s a good talent, so I don’t know why Jay never made it to WWE.”

Outside of Lethal, Flair also spoke highly of another athletic former ROH Champion in Seth Rollins. Flair thinks that being a babyface isn't optimal for Rollins, however.

“That’s the guy to watch,” Flair said. “Seth needs to be a bad guy again – he’s not nearly as good being a good guy – but he’s a tremendous performer. They had him in the right spot, but then he got hurt. Seth can really go.”

The two-time Hall of Famer Flair hasn't appeared on WWE TV recently.
