Re: Ric Flair why GOAT?
First off, please don't mention Flair/Cena together in the same sentence. Second, yes maybe Ric's matches got predictible, and he did a lot of the same things in his last 10 years or so of active competition, but go back to the 80s even early-mid 90s, all of his classic matches, how many matches he had during those time, his promo skills, his match emotions when he was the champion, how he could work with a broom and get it over, etc, etc. I have exactly 650 of his matches on DVD, and just watching some of those 45 min - 1 hour matches are just masterpieces, we'll never see pure mat classics like those again.
If he came back as an active wrestler today, he'd be better than 95% of the active roster in the WWE. There's so much more that I could say about this topic, but I think your post is pretty uninformed, and you don't really know what you're talking about and what to base a true legend on.
