Everyone is weighing in on Dwayne Johnson's possible presidential bid in 2020, and now the legendary Ric Flair has spoken on the matter.

The world's only two-time Hall of Fame member opened up to TMZ Sports about his thoughts on the wrestler and world's highest-paid actor making a run at the White House, and you can bet he's in The Rock's corner.

"The guy is so damn successful and everything he touches turns to gold," Flair said. "He's a role model, great father, a great guy and a good friend of mine. Who's to say? Who would've ever thought 10 years ago Donald Trump would be president? And Rock is close to making his kind of money."

While the Stylin' and Profilin' star says he'd stump for The Rock, and will be doing the same for Kane's mayoral bid in Tennessee, Flair has no political aspirations himself. He did once flirt with the idea of running for governor, but ended up dropping the idea after talking with Jesse Ventura.

"I flew up to spend a weekend with Jesse and said forget that," Flair joked. "[Now it's] out of the question. I'm just trying to stay out of the line of fire."
