Ric Flair is the Man! Woooo!
Ric Flair has been making headlines in his professional wresting career which spans for almost four decades. However, his life resume is not restricted to achievements, awards as well as accolades from his time in the WWE, WCW and NWA. Ric Flair has proved many times over that he is the man. Following are reasons to back this up.
Reason number 1. A two-time hall of famer – up to this time, there are numerous wrestling legends who still wait for their spot to be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame. Others have been patiently waiting for their time to be nominated but then again, here is Flair, inducted in the HOF not just once but twice. It’s quite impressive for a man who has done humongous work inside the wrestling ring.
Reason number 2. He was considered throwing his hat into different rings – Flair is quite popular worldwide but wait until you get into his home state, North Carolina. Flair was considering to run for a Governor position but dropped out of race because of Jesse Ventura’s suggestion, his friend and also, a former Minnesota Governor and wrestler.
It is due to the reason that Ventura told flair that his opponent and the press will be attacking his personal life. This has made Flair to decide staying on his political sidelines but still shows support to other candidates.
Reason number 3. Real life feuds are as legendary as his in-ring matches – several of the epic matches that Ric Flair has had have something to do with the biggest and brightest names in the industry from Harley Race and Ricky Steamboat, Sting to Dusty Rhodes, Flair usually came up victorious in those battles.
In his autobiography, Ric Flair “To be the Man”, Flair has criticized Bret Hart for overexploiting the death of his brother, Owen Hart as well as the controversy that surrounds the Montreal Screwjob. Apart from that, Flair even states that Hart is only famous in Canada and was never actually a big name in the US. While Ric Flair has so many feuds in the rings which are all epic, there are many of them as well that you can find in real life.
Reason number 4. He had his own day in various towns – Ric Flair is well loved in his home state and in several other towns that he called home for short period of time. In fact, in those towns, they are celebrating “Ric Flair Days” as if it’s a national holiday.
Reason number 5. Humble – despite the championships, titles, awards, achievements and accolades he have under his name, Ric Flair managed to stay humble outside the ring.
