Ric Flair & Hulk Hogan React
Team Captains Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair have weighed in on Seth Rollins being removed from their big tag team match at WWE Crown Jewel later this month. Hogan was more understanding of losing his team captain since Rollins also has a Universal Championship defense on the same show, and said he has an idea for a backup plan. Flair, on the other hand, talked a little trash ahead of the big match and said Hogan has never beaten him in a fair fight—and never will.
Even The Team Captain Doesn’t Want To Go Up Against #TeamFlair. @HulkHogan You’re Down To 2! Maybe You Can Call Some New Stars? Gilberg, Johnny Rodz, Backlund?? WOOOOO #WWECrownJewel https://t.co/Vjrn9ThFfE

I know teams! I know factions! The Horsemen, Evolution, I created some of the best! Never got one up on Naitch fair and square and if we did it one-on-one today … it’d be a figure four and the bell for you Hogan! WOOOOO #WWECrownJewel #16x https://t.co/wNbG21LAyX
