“I didn’t say he wasn’t a good worker,” said Flair. “When Hunter put him over at [WrestleMania XXX], that made him.”
“He’s a very talented kid, don’t misunderstand me. But, you have to have one match, one place, one day, somewhere that makes you who you are.”
“Hunter, who only wrestles once in a while, came out and the match started off slow but they ended up having a world-class match. He’s a hell of a performer, I don’t see him as being Kenny Omega.”
“As a babyface, he’s not Ricky Steamboat. As a heel, he’s not me. If that pisses people off, they have to live with history.”
