– Mike Mooneyham of The Post & Courier has a new article up with singer Darius Rucker, talking about being a Ric Flair fan and watching wrestling growing up. Rucker said he bought one of Ric Flair’s robes at a charity auction years ago and has one of his title belts on display in his home. Rucker talked about who is the greatest:
“For me, the Mount Rushmore of greats would be Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Hulk Hogan, Bruno Sammartino or Lou Thesz. You can do either one of them in that fourth spot. But I think Ric Flair is the greatest of all time. He’s the greatest I’ve ever seen … on the mic and in the ring. Hogan gets all the accolades because he was up in New York with (WWE owner Vince) McMahon. But when you talk about on the microphone or in the ring, he doesn’t hold a candle to Ric Flair. When you watch Ric on TV, that’s who he is. He’s the Nature Boy 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I just love him. He’s the most personable guy. That argument over who is the greatest of all time is such a big thing. All those New York guys say Hogan. I’ve watched a lot of wrestling, and even now I’ll YouTube a lot of stuff that I haven’t seen, like old Bruno matches or Lou Thesz matches that you can get on there. You can watch all the greats. But Ric Flair is the greatest of all time.”
– As noted, the final two Money In the Bank spots were expected to be filled on RAW tonight. PWInsider reports that WWE creative talked this past weekend about filling one spot on RAW tonight and the final spot on SmackDown but that’s not confirmed.
