He Compares The Shield To The Horseman's Qualities
Last Night During WWE's Monday Night Raw Event -- The Legend Ric Flair came back to let the world of wrestling know what his opinion of the Shield was going to be.
Ric Flair was one of the longest running professional wrestlers in the ring, with a career that spanned over 40-years before he went into semi-retirement. He made his debut fight in 1972 against George "Scrap Iron: Gadaski, which finished with a draw after a ten-minute fight.
His most notable partnership came in 1985, when he teamed up with fellow wrestler Arn Anderson with a pair of other various wrestlers over the years dubbed "The Four Horsemen." He is the only person to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame twice. The second time coming this year on the 31st of March.
Ric Flair came out on Monday night with a crowd anticipating he would adopt Evolution as his choice for a passing of the torch. Instead, after coming out onto the stage before the main fight -- Flair went on to talk about his days in the "Four Horsemen." He mentioned how a wrestler needed to be strong and a team was like a great stable. He mentioned all the qualities they needed to become a champion in the ring.
Afterwards instead of siding with Evolution -- Ric Flair went another direction and said that The Shield was the next great stable waiting to earn glory in the ring. According to the Baltimore Sun if The Shield wins at Extreme Rules it would set-up the passing-of-the-torch scenario that the story line was meant to drive out on Monday Night's WWE Raw Event.
