Ric Flair, where does he rank All time?

One of the greatest of all time, IMO. Excellent Mic worker, amazing in ring ability, and loads of charisma.

Re: Ric Flair, where does he rank AllmTime?

Like the Savage thread, matter of opinion, but yeah, he's up there for sure, he's a veteran within the business too.

Re: Ric Flair, where does he rank AllmTime?

For me, Top 25, but realistically and typically, Top 10.

Re: Ric Flair, where does he rank All time?

Arguably #1.

If you by his WWE/F work alone, however, he's not that high on the list. His 2002-2008 work was average. He retired about 4-5 years too late, maybe.

His biggest accomplishments were in WCW, NWA, and other promotions.

Re: Ric Flair, where does he rank All time?

Ya see, there is also the added bonus on things here in regards to where WWE push or create that extra image for some stars to be the greatest of all time too, that is in no way taking away any credibility for Flair's obvious phenomenal work, and for many years too, but what I mean is, there is wrestlers who worked just as much, were probably better in the ring too, and they don't really get put in the picture quite as much and that's because WWE haven't reflected their careers as much as they have done say Flair.

I mean, Mr Perfect I'd say was way better than Flair, but does he get the credit Flair does? Not quite so much.

To even say top 25 is absurd. He should absolutely be higher on the list.

Remember, this is a forum which means an air of opinion, the guy said 'For me, top 25' (in his opinion), but went on to say 'realistically top 10', which means he knows Flair is higher regarded than his personal opinion, but it's how he feels about it, which is fair enough and perfect sense, he was expressing how he felt honestly about Flair personally as opposed to realistically, which he knows is different.

It was a very good and genuine response was that
