Flair took him under his wing because he wanted him to be the son he wish he had. Orton said the Flair he looked up to would not have needed a pacemaker or slipped into a coma two summers ago. The Flair he looked up to was not a whore for the spotlight like he is now. Flair is washed up.

Flair said Ric Flair from 2001 is no longer there. He likes the spotlight, he’s 71-years-old and is still on Raw. Guys like Hulk Hogan call him and ask him how it is. He says it’s the greatest feeling in the world. He wants Orton’s approval and wants to be there when Orton wins his 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th championship to break his record. Flair says it’s his record, not John Cena’s record. Flair put Orton over as the greatest performer in the world today and he loves being there with him.
