Two-time WWE Hall of Famer “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair recently took to his “To Be The Man” podcast to talk about a number of topics such as why All Elite Wrestling shouldn’t have turned MJF babyface.
Ric Flair said:
“I don’t like that personally. I just think the fans turn you. The promotion should never turn you. If you’re that hot as a heel, the fans will begin to respect you so much, very similar to how they did with the Horseman. We became babyfaces without actually even having a turn. I think their problem is they don’t have a strong enough babyface over there to keep him a heel. Maybe that’s the issue because the guy, if he’s that hot and he’s still young, I would make him the champion and I would feed him babyfaces for a couple of years like they do with Roman. Give the guy a chance to wear the title for a long time and let him be the flagship guy. I think he’s really good. If you think he’s the best, why not go with him? He’s certainly been the topic of a lot of conversation between going there and WWE. You don’t know what to believe anymore, but I’m sure Tony decided that he was a very intricate part of what he wanted to do with his company and that’s why Tony paid him. That would be my guess.”
