While Roman Reigns looks set to defend the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Cody Rhodes in the main event WrestleMania 39, Ric Flair has his own ideas about the match that should headline the show.
Cody Rhodes made his triumphant return to WWE at the Royal Rumble after months off with a torn pectoral muscle. Entering the Men’s Rumble at Number 30, he last eliminated the Number One entrant, Gunther, to secure his place at the Showcase Of The Immortals.
Meanwhile, the Women’s Rumble saw Rhea Ripley enter at Number One and go the distance to outlast 29 other women, breaking several records in the process, to stamp her own ticket to the Grandaddy of them All. The following night on Raw, she challenged Charlotte Flair for the event with the SmackDown Women’s Championship on the line.
Ric Flair reveals match he wants to main event WrestleMania 39
It is that match Ric Flair says has to be one of the main events of the two-night spectacular. Speaking on his podcast, To Be The Man, Flair praised Ripley for how much she’s matured in recent years while also claiming his daughter is the “best worker in the business”.
He believes this combination will “tear the joint down”.
“It’s gotta be one of the main events. It’s gonna be spectacular. Rhea has matured so much. That match they had in front of no people a couple years ago was fantastic.
“I can only imagine, I mean ‘The Queen’ is in a place where… she just plain and simply is the best worker in the business, in the company.
“I’m sure that she and Rhea will tear the joint down. If I were the guys, I wouldn’t want to follow them, and I would be hope that they’d be on last.”
Flair went on to discuss Ripley’s place in The Judgment Day, saying that as much as he enjoys that group, he’s pleased to see her going out on her own again.
“As much as I enjoy that group she’s with, which worked out really nice, I’m really happy that she’s going out on her own now again. I like that.
“Win, lose, or draw, I don’t know whether she’ll stay with that group or not, but she is such a great singles attraction. She and ‘The Queen’ will just tear it down. I’m so excited for both of them.”
