Ric Flair comments on Monday night, Randy Orton referencing his son

Among the bombs dropped in Raw’s electric closing scene on Mon., Aug. 10 was Randy Orton saying that Ric Flair viewed him as “the son you wish you had.”

It raised some eyebrows - this isn’t the first time WWE has scripted the tragedy of Ric’s son Reid into kayfabe. But probably because it was subtle, and part of a much stronger segment than Paige’s attack on Charlotte, it didn’t ruffle too many feathers.

The Nature Boy did address it in his first comment since Orton punting him in the head at the end of Raw, though.

Still putting over the man who attacked him (and Charlotte, too, naturally)... that’s Ric Flair.
