Ric Flair rips into Chris Jericho for “poor fundamentals”

Last updated

2x WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair has ripped into AEW star Chris Jericho for what Flair believes to be poor pro wrestling fundamentals.

Speaking on his WOOOOO Nation Uncensored, Flair described why he feels that Jericho has poor fundamentals when it comes to in-ring work.

‘I do think Chris Jericho is great. This is not against Chris Jericho. But he nor me, nor a lot of people will ever be on the same level as Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, or Ricky Steamboat” Flair began.

‘Punching and kicking are the fundamentals of the business, neither of which is he necessarily proficient at” Flair continued.

“He works, he can do the lion-tamer, all the flips everything in the world, and this has nothing. But the guys that are the great ones are the guys that never ever miss anything by that be a punch, kick, whatever, whatever calls for it” Flair concluded.
