WWE star Seth Rollins may have failed to get the good graces of Bret Hart, but the case seems to be far different for another WWE icon, Ric Flair.


The WWE Hall of Famer was recently asked to pick the winner for the upcoming Fatal Four-Way match at Monday Night Raw for the Universal championship and the “Nature Boy” went with Rollins.

“Oh, wow. Give me all the contestants again,” said Flair via his podcast when the four men scheduled for the match (Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Kevin Owens & Big Cass) were listed. “I like Seth Rollins.”

Among the top three wrestlers right now

According to Wrestlinginc.com, Flair and his co-host (Conrad Thompson) did not take up Hart’s recent criticism that Rollins is a dangerous talent that needs to hone up his in-ring talent. Apparently Flair sees it the other way around, believing that Rollins is one of the top three wrestlers there is to date.

It will be interesting if Rollins will indeed win the Universal title this coming Monday on Raw. Finn Balor was forced to vacate the title due to a shoulder injury. Ironically, Balor suffered the injury against Rollins at SummerSlam 2016 that sparked the criticism of Hart.

Where does Big Cass fit in?

Seeing Rollins win it all seems a bit too easy unless there is some drama tied up to the match on Raw. Right now, “The Architect” has no actual storyline after SummerSlam so the WWE could be tweaking scripts this Monday.

The same holds true for Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens though it looked like the two will have a score to settle tied up to Chris Jericho. Owens tried to help Y2J at Raw. So why not Big Cass and give another former NXT talent a boost? All that should be resolved this Monday so don’t miss it.
