According to live reports, Flair won the ‘match’ to be declared the KFC Rumble champion; the segment also featured The Miz and Rusev. Flair was originally supposed to be in a KFC ad before he fell ill last year; the Rumble themed ad is similar to one AJ Styles also filmed after a recent episode of WWE Smackdown Live.
