Ric Flair: John Cena ‘Represents WWE At The Highest Level’, I’m A Big Fan Of His

Ric Flair is on a very short list of stars who have wrestled both John Cena and Hulk Hogan.

In a recent interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, “The Nature Boy” praised Cena, who has regained his status as the practical face of WWE since he returned at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view. Flair complimented Cena’s work ethic and spoke highly of his performance in recent weeks.

“John Cena, the man’s a star,” said Flair. “He gave 10 years, every day of his life, to the business, and he is still finding new ways to work hard. John just doesn’t know any other way. It’s been a pleasure to see every piece of work he’s done so far since coming back.”

As the two men atop the board of world championship reigns in WWE history, Cena and Flair continue to be compared to each other, and the WWE Hall of Famer shared his belief that Cena is an excellent representative of the company.

“John represents WWE at the highest level,” said Flair. “I’m as big a John Cena fan as you can find. Look at what’s in store. John working Roman Reigns—that’s going to be special.

As for Hogan, Flair looked back on his memorable matches with “The Hulkster” and called the times he worked with the iconic star “the easiest nights” of his career.

“I loved working with him,” said Flair. “How can you not love working with a guy who’s over like that? I had moments like that working with Kerry Von Erich, Ricky Steamboat, Sting, Ricky Morton and, of course, Dusty Rhodes. They all attained that level, but Hulk was unbelievable. Working with him was great. Those were the easiest nights of my life.”
