Ric Flair puts forth his opinion about the Hall of Fame Barry Windham that he will be remembered forever in high regards for his enormous contribution in the wrestling world.
Including WCW and WWE, Windham was a constant content creator for promotions in the late 80s and 90s. Despite his height of 6’6”, he has won many singles and tag team trophies in his career and was hailed for his technical wrestling skills.
On the podcast of Wooooo Nation Uncensored, Ric Flair joined with host Mark Madden to discuss the 60-minute Nature Boy match with Barry Windham. Flair has a strong opinion about the Hall of Famer in that match and even felt that he was an underrated pro wrestler during that time.
“He was so natural, so good. We never talked about anything, we had great chemistry. I wish his name was remembered in more high regard because Barry Windham was one of the greatest of all-time. ‘One of the greatest’ – I will use that word for Barry Windham all day long. He had a knee injury and a couple of different things. When Barry wanted to and when he was healthy, he was as good as anybody, especially considering he is 6’6” and 255-260 pounds,” Ric Flair stated.
Windham was one among the Four Horsemen fraction with Ric Flair and stepped into WWE Hall of Fame in the year 2012.
Ric Flair Feels Barry Windham Should Compete as an Individual in WWE Hall of Fame
Ric and Barry have played few matches that were sensational during a time which may vary between 20,60, or 90 minute games. During the NWA World Heavyweight Championship, Barry had given the natural boy everything he could handle during the quest.
Earlier, the Natural boy was all hearts when Windham took Ricky Steamboat in a game. Flair thinks that Windham would outshine if he plays as an individual performer just like Anderson or Tully Blanchard.
“First of all, let me go on record and say, Arn, Tully (Blanchard) and Barry (Windham) should all be in the Hall of Fame as individuals. I thought they all had Hall of Fame careers as individuals. Barry Windham was just in another league. He was a 6’5”, 255 pound Ricky Steamboat,” Flair added.
The 16-times World Champion also revealed that he was not in touch with any of the original members of the Four Horsemen fraction.
