Roman Reigns was recently interviewed by ESPN’s SportsCenter where he talked about a number of wrestling related topics. Reigns was also about Ric Flair’s health complications and the former WWE Champion commented on the issue.
Reigns stated that Ric’s friendship meant a lot to him and talked about how genuine the Nature Boy is as a person as well as a person. Here’s what the Big Dog said in the interview:
“Well, for me I’m a generational superstar, my father, my uncle, multiple cousins and my brother, they were all within the WWE, they all wrestled. And that’s one thing you can kind of tell – even all the way up to the McMahons – that this is a family business and it runs deep. Even now, Ric Flair has a daughter who’s been a great performer, great champion, and spokesperson for the women of WWE and WWE, in general.”
Reigns continued by saying:
“To see something like this happen, I don’t know enough details to share, but all I know is I’m great friends with Ric. I’ve been on many tours and just hung out with him and spoke with him, he’s just such a genuine man. Such a good time, eccentric, such a charismatic person, but such a kind guy. If you’re friends with him, you’ll know it, he’ll love on ya and just all my prayers and thoughts are with him, Charlotte, and the rest of their family. I hope for a speedy recovery, and Ric, bring your butt back, we need you on tour. And that’s coming straight from the ‘Big Dog’ right here. We need ya back, man.”
