In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Ric Flair spoke on a number of topics but perhaps the most surprising was Flair talking about who he would like to have wrestle for the WWE. He revealed that Jay Lethal, former ROH World Champion, was one of the most qualified that has never made it to the WWE, saying:
“I do wish that Jay Lethal was in WWE. He’s an incredibly nice guy, and he’s a good talent, so I don’t know why Jay never made it to WWE.”
It's interesting to note that Flair isn't a fan of Finn Balor's size, and he's bigger than Lethal. WWE low-balled Lethal with an offer in October.
