Ric Flair sees himself in MJF

The 16 times World Champion recently revealed on his podcast, ‘The Wooooo Nation‘ that instead of ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper, he sees himself in MJF.

The Nature Boy further explained why he thinks that MJF is not like Roddy Piper. Flair confessed that Roddy never talked lavishly about his clothes or jewelry, which is something Flair did in his career.

He further explained himself by saying that MJF proudly presents his dresses and disses the people who do not have them.

“Roddy was just boom boom boom boom, I don’t see much Roddy in him, I see more me than Roddy. I’m not taking anything away from Roddy. You asked me who I see more of in him. Roddy didn’t brag about his clothes and stuff like that.”

“This kid is, which makes him different. He’s talking about material things or he implies that he has the material things that other people don’t. That really p****s people off, especially when it’s the truth,” he said.
