Both of these superstars are currently the hottest commodities in the pro-wrestling industry, so it’s natural for Flair to mention Reigns and Lesnar as his dream opponents.

“Oh, my god. Roman [Reigns] [as] number one. In my prime, Brock [Lesnar].” Flair said when asked who would’ve liked to face if he was in his prime. Interestingly, Flair also mentioned that he would like to face the current AEW sensation, CM Punk.

Furthermore, Flair also noted he would like Punk to play a character of the ultimate babyface while facing him. The Nature Boy also said the name of Chris Jericho as one of his favorite wrestlers that he would’ve loved to fight in his prime.

“I think I would’ve liked to work with CM Punk. Well, if he would have accepted a role of a babyface, it could’ve been really good. I also would love to wrestle [Chris] Jericho when I was younger.” confessed Ric.
