Re: Ric Flair vs. Roddy Piper

Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Flair by a mile.

For Piper it was too much babbling on the mic about random stuff for me. Very convincing in the ring but he's no Flair.

"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait."

"I backed him. You can see how loyal he is. He was begging for my endorsement. I could have said, 'Mitt, drop to your knees.' He would have dropped to his knees."

"You oughta see this guy - 'uh, I don't know what I said, uh, I don't remember,'"

I will build a great wall and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me and Ill build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.

"He is a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured."

Re: Ric Flair vs. Roddy Piper

Flair was much better. Better wrestler, better talker, more charismatic (he could do stupid shit like elbow drop a microphone and make it entertaining), etc.

I was never much of a fan of Piper's. His rambling and yelling on the mic was like nails on a chalkboard to me

Yet you’re a Bray Wyatt fan? 😂 You just described his entire 2013 - 2018 act.

You remind me of a terrible, try-hard stand-up comedian, making ‘observations’ that are too esoteric to be relatable yet too unoriginal to be funny, so you just end up looking like a twat.

Re: Ric Flair vs. Roddy Piper

Piper was far more entertaining to me. Flair was obviously better in the ring. Piper's punches were atrocious at best. Still Piper made me more emotionally invested in his matches. Liked Flair, Loved Piper.

Re: Ric Flair vs. Roddy Piper

I love both of those guys but still its an easy pick for me. Flair all the way. I liked his matches more and no matter how crazy Piper could be Flair could be even crazier. some of the shit that he would say or do during promos was fucking awesome.

I know everybody always talks about Flairs promos in the 80s but some of his stuff in the late 90s in WCW is so underrated.

Re: Ric Flair vs. Roddy Piper

Flair and Piper were best of friends in real life and even Flair puts over Piper as the greatest heel. Flair says that Piper use to draw so much heel heat that even Flair couldnt compete with him, that everything Piper did was must see TV.

I really enjoyed their feud for the US title. Id watch Piper for the promos and Flair for the wrestling.

Rollins then pins Reigns for the win, it gets the title off Lesnar without hurting his monster image and give Reigns someone to feud against for the next few months.

This is how I would cash in.
I saw it coming a month before Wrestlemania.
