That WWE Hall of Famer is Ric Flair, whose daughter Charlotte is engaged to the Mexican star.
Speaking with TVInsider, Flair said:
“I think he is one of the top five guys in the business. He is a great kid. I hope they continue to push him and [Angel] Garza. I like Garza a lot. I think Zelina [Vega] does a tremendous job when given the opportunity to talk. She also looks like a million bucks. She knows how to be a heel. Both those kids Angel and Andrade can work. The sky’s the limit for them. It all depends on the direction the company goes in, but they’re really good. They’re solid. You can’t see through their work. Manny [Andrade] is really good. As big as he is, he can do what Rey Mysterio can do. I have a ton of respect for all of them.”
Flair also spoke in the interview about Randy Orton, and said he’s pitching to be in Orton’s corner for the WWE Title match against Drew McIntyre at SummerSlam.
Do you think Flair is giving Andrade a bit of preferential treatment because of his relationship with Charlotte or do you agree that he’s one of the top five in the business? Let us know in the replies on Twitter.
