Ric Flair spoke with Sports Illustrated for a new interview discussing his health, Summerslam and more. Highlights are below:

On how heís doing after his health scar last year: ďItís almost a year ago, August 14, when I went through everything with my surgery. But now I feel great. I just had another surgery a couple weeks ago to reverse the stoma. Now I need a couple of months of rest, and I still canít work out yet, but I feel fantastic. Itís a miracle.Ē

On his physical condition: ďIím not physically banged up. I feel great. My knees, elbows, and back, they donít bother me at all right now. When I look at my friends with back operations, hip replacements, knee replacements, Iím just thankful Iím in one piece because so many have been through a lot. Hulk has had like nine back operations. Guys in my generation and even the generation younger than me are all physically banged up much more than me, but Iím lucky to be doing great. Thank you to all whoíve asked.Ē

On what WWE needs to do with Roman Reigns to sell his match with Brock Lesnar: ďThis is a big couple of weeks for wrestling. WWE has come up with something creative for Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar, and Iím really looking forward to watchingÖItís not the individuals who make the match any more, itís the promotion. The fact that Roman has wrestled Brock three different times and not been successful shows the constant belief from the company that Romanís ready to be the leader.Ē
