Ric Flair reveals his top three performers of all time

Ric Flair is considered to be one of the greatest performers of all time and during a recent interview with SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio, he revealed which are the top three performers of all time according to him.

Flair first talked about this week’s episode of Raw and the return of Stone Cold Steve Austin who moderated a contract signing segment between Braun Strowman and Seth Rollins.

Revealing the three names he considers to be the all-time top performers, the 16 Time World Champion took the name of Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Undertaker:

“The three biggest […] in my estimation are Hulk, Steve, and ‘Taker. They’re just three names that are gonna be synonymous, they’ve drawn huge amounts of money.”

Continuing on the topic, Ric Flair also talked about Stone Cold Steve Austin’s retirement and said that the Texas Rattlesnake would still be performing if it wasn’t for his neck injury.

    Lawler has gotten into trouble on a few occasions but it is my understanding that he still sat on a huge pile of money throughout all of it. He still has a truckload of money right now.

    Top names in the industry maybe, but top performers? Not even close.

    That said, Taker is one of my favourite wrestlers ever but if we are talking purely on name value and drawing power, The Rock trumps him easily.
    Hogan, Austin and Rock are probably the three biggest names outside the wrestling fanbase, to the casual fans and the people who never really watch wrestling. Taker would barely factor into that.

    As for whether Austin would still be performing if it was not due to his neck injury retiring him. No way can anyone state that. Not everyone wants to keep going til they are way past their prime like Flair has.
    People like Flair and Lawler kept performing because they were bad with their money, usually because of all the women they owe allimony to.

    I could maybe see Austin doing the odd special appearance much like Taker has done these last few years, but I really am no convinced he would have continued wrestling.
