Happy Birthday To “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair! (VIDEO containing WOOOS)
The styling', profiling', limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin' n' dealin' son of a gun! "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair turns 67 today!
Ric Flair is a living legend, a 16 time World Champion and the leader of the Four Horsemen, with an in-ring career that lasted 40 years.
Ric Flair captured 1 of the 16 World Championships right here in Albany, NY! In 1992 at the Times Union Center!
In his 40 year career Ric Flair had one of his greatest matches in Troy, NY when he took on the legendary Terry Funk in an "I Quit" match at the Houston Field House in 1989.
This particular match is also one of Mick Foley's all-time favorites.
Ric Flair is one of the greatest of all time, his work inside the squared circle is unmatched and is often used as an example in which others are modeled after. Ric Flair made a move as simple as a chop across the chest famous, all he needed was a little "Wooooo!" and now a Pro Wrestler can't do that move without getting a "Woooo!" from the audience.
Ric Flair is not just one of the greatest of all time in the ring, but on the mic as well.
Ric Flair's legacy is that he established that he is "The man" in Pro Wrestling, and after his 40 year career in the ring he can't stay away, Ric Flair currently manages his daughter Charlotte in the WWE.
If you're a wrestling fan, then you don't need to be reminded of who Ric Flair is and you probably know more about him then me, but do you have any personal Ric Flair stories?
I know of one local business owner that actually turned down a date with Ric Flair.
