Ric Flair comes among the class of perhaps, one of the greatest in-ring performers of the wrestling business. But the 16-time World champion would not shy away from putting Brock Lesnar in a similar category in regards to today’s generation.

The Beast Incarnate has been regarded as a top-tier attraction for many years in the industry. From his early ascend to the top during his young days back in the early 2000s, to conquering the octagon and then displaying his dominance in WWE years later, Brock has done it all.

However, the most remarkable quality of the former UFC champion is giving back to the business. As seen over the years, Lesnar has helped build stars like Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, and most recently Cody Rhodes who he put over back at SummerSlam 2023.

The Nature Boy Ric Flair shared his thoughts on Brock Lesnar, calling him a special talent and a great worker who can do just about everything. Moreover, he compared Lesnar’s work ethic to the legendary superstar, Bruiser Brody. He spoke about the same during his recent conversation on the Busted Open Radio.


“I actually texted Brock and I said, ‘You have put yourself in a different league.’ He about killed him, but at the end of the day, he put him over. I texted Brock, ‘Brother, you’re a special kind of cat. You’ve gone from being a great attraction a good worker, to a great worker.’ He is a great worker right now. He’s in a class of great. He can do anything, and it looks real. I only wrestled him a couple of times and I used to say, ‘Remember, I’m just a little bit older than you buddy.’ [Laughs]. He never hurt me. Brock is like Brody [Bruiser Brody], except Brody was probably a little meaner. Brock is pretty intimidating. The minute they gave Brock the mic instead of Heyman talking, he’s great. He’s great on the mic.”

Brock Lesnar has not been seen on WWE television programming since his epic showdown with Cody Rhodes at SummerSlam. However, there are reports that the Beast is scheduled to resurface at the upcoming 2024 Royal Rumble pay-per-view. So we will have to wait and see what WWE has in store for him as the road to WrestleMania 40 kicks off.
