In early 2003, Ric Flair and Triple H formed Evolution and took a young Randy Orton and Batista under their wing. Fast forward 17 years and Ric Flair still thinks Randy Orton is one of the most naturally gifted competitors of all time and feels that his daughter, Charlotte Flair, is the female equivalent.

Speaking with talkSPORT, Ric Flair praised Randy Orton, claiming that his protege was doing some of the best work of his career in 2020.

“Nobody is higher on Randy Orton than I am,” he began. “I think, right now, he is doing some of the best work he has ever done and I think Edge is too. Randy has done and accomplished so much and he’s been there a long time – people don’t realize this, but every time he says something, it’s the truth. And his level of ability right now and his health are both great. He’s at the top of his game, which, in my opinion, makes him the number one guy.”

Continuing on, Flair would say that he knows it comes across as biased, but he really feels that his daughter, Charlotte Flair is the female equivalent to being as naturally gifted as Randy Orton.

“People are going to say I’m biased, but she’s the female Orton. Younger, less time in the business, but she’s picked it up,” said Ric. “The art of being able to make somebody look good and make the match the priority rather than what you are capable of doing or not doing is what separates the good from the great. She’s been in that conversation as the greatest ever since, I think, [WrestleMania 32]. I think the conversation becomes more solidified as the greatest ever every time she goes out there and you have an opportunity to compare her skills with somebody else. I know she was excited and looked forward to the match with Rhea, she certainly didn’t look at it as a step-down. She looked at it as an opportunity to wrestle somebody else with a lot of skills and a great work ethic.”

Charlotte Flair is now the NXT Women’s Champion, meaning that she has won twelve Women’s Championships overall throughout her career in WWE, quickly catching up to her dad’s sixteen title wins.
