Ric Flair dances on the Tonight Show with some rapper…

In August of 2017, Ric Flair the wrestling legend had a pretty scary health scare that almost killed him. He had some kind of heart problem and he had part of his bowels removed ’cause of it. After the surgery Ric Flair took a little break from the entertainment business and now he is back at it full time.

As you can see, nothing is slowing him down. Even after a major surgery which removed part of his bowels, he’s still out there doing physical things like dancing with rapper Offset as you can see here. Yeah, as you can see Ric’s got the dance moves even at 69 years old which is impressive.

I’m not a big fan of the song too much but I just enjoyed watching Ric Flair having a blast. He looked like he was having too much fun dancing like that. I think Ric deserves to have fun again after he went through a tough time so it’s nice to see him smiling again.

Ric’s stylin’ and profilin’ is not just a wrestling gimmick, it’s how he is in real life too. In real life outside of the wrestling ring, he looks and dresses like an alpha male ’cause that’s what he is an alpha male.

Ric Flair is one of my top 5 favorite wrestlers. He’s pretty high up on the list for sure. I’ve always respected that man immensely. Ric can play both the heel and babyface pretty well, but I think he’s more entertaining as a heel though. Ric has worked through pretty much all wrestling companies except for ECW. Flair is a genius in and out of the ring.

Happy Birthday, Ric Flair!!!

RicFlairRoyalRumb92.jpg

Ric Flair is one of the reasons I watch professional wrestling. I’ll never forget the night when I witnessed Flair winning the WWE Championship for the first time at the Royal Rumble 1992 which took place at the Knickerbocker Arena (now the venue is called “The Times Union Center) in Albany, N.Y.. I was there that night at the Rumble ’92 ppv. I didn’t get very good seats; I remember sitting at the very top, but I could still see the ring pretty well from way up there.

The Rumble ’92 was indeed one of the greatest Rumble ppvs in the history of wrestling. I’ll never forget that night ever and I was fortunate enough to be there to watch it live in person. I got to see so many legends that night I remember… Hulk Hogan, Jake the Snake, The Undertaker, Owen Hart, Jim Neidhart, Rick Martel, Mr. Perfect, Tito Santana, Roddy Piper, Sid Justice, The Macho Man, Greg The Hammer Valentine, Big Bossman, The Legion of Doom, Jimmy Snuka, etc. That was such an incredible night — I still remember it like it was yesterday. I still like to re-watch the Royal Rumble 1992 every now and then

I respect Flair so much. He has done so much for the wrestling business over the years. Ric has worked for pretty much all wrestling companies. He went through the AWA, the WWF/WWE, WCW and TNA Impact. The only company he didn’t work for was ECW obviously. My respect for Flair is pretty immense.

Thanks Ric for all you do.

That Ric Flair documentary last night, “Nature Boy: 30 For 30” was really good! Best wrestling documentary I’ve seen in years!

Did anyone out there at all watch the Ric Flair documentary film on ESPN last night called, “Nature Boy: 30 For 30”??? I sure as hell did! The documentary blew me away too as I thought it was freakin’ amazing! It’s not only the best wrestling documentary, it’s also one of the best movie documentaries I’ve seen in a long time! It really was that good. The director of that movie did a great job.

I think the whole goal with the movie was that it wanted to show you who the real Ric Flair is. In the ring, Ric maybe this stylin’, profilin’, limo ridin’, jet flyin’, kiss stealin’, wheelin’ and dealin’ son of a gun but that’s just his in-ring character and gimmick. In reality, Ric is just a normal human being with a lot of problems in his life. Out of the ring, he’s just a devoted family man. That’s what the film pretty much showed. Other than that, the film also showed his legacy through professional wrestling, of course. The film showed how he’s the greatest of all time.

I’m a really huge Ric Flair fan. He has always been one of my favorites. I’ll never forget the night when he won the Royal Rumble 1992, and he won the WWE championship for the first time that night. I was there live when I saw that. I was glad to witness that Royal Rumble live in person. It was a historic moment to witness Flair win the title that night.

Seriously, Ric Flair was very courageous to go on TV to talk about all of his personal problems. He wasn’t afraid to talk about going through alcoholism for most of his life, dealing with the death of his son Reid Flair and talking about his health scare that he just had. Makes me respect Flair even more. The documentary was similar to his book that he wrote with Ashley Flair (aka Charlotte in WWE)… the book Second Nature which is in stores now. That book is recommended reading too. Both the documentary on ESPN and the Ric Flair/Charlotte book are both pretty similar.

Another interesting part of the film was that it explained how Charlotte got into the WWE. Initially, Charlotte never wanted to become a WWE star, but she decided to get into wrestling in honor of her brother Reid Fliehr. Before Reid’s death, he was getting himself trained to be a WWE superstar but sadly it never happened. Charlotte got into wrestling in his honor. In other words, she wants to make his dream come true for him.

The film had all kinds of emotions. It can get enjoyable and sad at the same time. A lot of it’s positive and a lot of it isn’t. Ric maybe a WWE legend and all but he had some pretty dark times in his life too. Even though Ric had a lot of problems, he never gave up his love for professional wrestling. Ric always had wrestling in his blood — it was his passion. He worked through pretty much every wrestling company including WCW and TNA Impact. He loves the business and he shows it.

I thought it was a really good documentary last night and I’m probably gonna watch it again this week ’cause I DVR’d it. Even if you aren’t a wrestling fan at all, you may even enjoy it yourself. I would suggest everyone to check it out if ESPN re-runs it this week ’cause I’m sure they will!

Ric Flair is back!!! Stylin’ and profilin’, WOOO!!!!

LMAO! Ric Flair, wrestling legend, just had a major health scare and a major surgery — here he is letting us fans know that he is fine and good. He thanks his fans for the support and all that stuff.

I just love Flair’s sense of humor. Proves he is a strong guy and he’s already moving forward as you can see here; he’s acting like his health scare is nothing. People usually feel a little down after a health scare but not Ric. As you can see here, he’s in a very good mood. Announcing his comeback in style!

Glad Ric is still here with us. Rock on, Ric! This video makes me respect him even more.

Thoughts and prayers goes out to Ric Flair and his family… hope he pulls through…

Sad news that wrestling legend, Ric Flair has been hospitalized due to major heart problems. He’s just out of surgery and now he’s in an induced coma.

This sucks ’cause Ric Flair is one of my favorite wrestlers of all-time.

Even though Ric had his final wrestling match with Shawn Michaels at WM-24 which was in 2008, Ric kept performing in the business over the years. Why did he keep perform despite the retirement? Well simply because he loves the wrestling business. Wrestling has always been in his blood. He took wrestling as a huge passion and he shows that he loves it so I believe he didn’t do it for the money at all.

Ric worked for all wrestling companies over the years… he worked for: WWF/WWE, WCW and TNA-Impact. Ric has always been an amazing performer. He was definitely one of the best wrestlers in the business and most importantly of all, he delivered the best mic promos too. Whether Ric played a heel or a babyface, he did both really well. When he played a heel, he was really good at getting people to boo him and when he played a babyface, he was really good at getting people to cheer him.

Everybody respected the hell out of Ric Flair ’cause no doubt, he’s an icon in the business. He’s one of my top 5 favorite wrestlers other than the Ultimate Warrior, Owen Hart, Macho Man Randy Savage and Mick Foley.

Ric was the one who helped his daughter, Charlotte Flair (real name: Ashley) into the WWE.

This sucks.I hope Ric pulls through. Prayers go out to him and his family.

Charlotte Flair… making women’s wrestling in WWE fun again? I would say so!!!

For a long while, the women’s division in WWE hasn’t been interesting at all. I think Charlotte Flair (real name: Ashley Fliehr) who is the daughter of wrestling legend, Ric Flair, is starting to make women’s wrestling interesting again. Whether you like her or not, you gotta admit that she’s making women’s wrestling interesting again.

I watched last night’s Hell in a Cell ppv so I can watch the first ever women’s “Hell in a Cell” match with Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks. My god. I was surprised! The match turned out pretty amazing and impressive! That match will definitely go down as a classic years from now and I think there will be more women’s “Hell in a Cell” matches after this one. Hopefully they do another women’s Hell in a Cell match for the next Wrestlemania. They probably will. Both women Charlotte and Sasha did a great job for their first “Hell in a Cell” match. Only thing I’m disappointed in that match was that they didn’t fight at the top of the cell. They did try to go to the top of the cell but only made it halfway up.

WWE did a great job making it seem like a Hell in a Cell match was too dangerous for women. Both of them pulled it off nicely, though. It was a pretty exciting match. Charlotte is definitely making women’s wrestling exciting again for sure. I’m sure most wrestling fans would agree. The more I watch Charlotte on RAW, the more I like her. I’ve been keeping an eye on Charlotte ever since she made her RAW debut. She started off as a babyface (a good wrestler) but then she turned heel after she turned on her father on RAW.

In real life, though, it’s obvious that Ric has been teaching her a lot about wrestling ’cause Charlotte reminds me so much of Ric Flair. I think Charlotte is one of the most talented women in wrestling we’ve had in a long time. She’s the best female heel since Sensational Sherri. I really mean that too. Not only that Charlotte is a great wrestler and good performer, she’s also smoking hot and nice to look at!

Charlotte is awesome and I hope she stays in WWE for a pretty long time. It’s obvious that Vince McMahon and WWE is pretty high on her right now which is good. I hope WWE doesn’t mess up her character and doesn’t screw her career ’cause they do that to good performers all the time. Charlotte could soon become the most recognizable star in wrestling since Trish Stratus and Lita. Hope they keep up the good work and don’t mess it up.

Cool Video: Is Bully Ray the best heel in TNA Impact? I would say so!

If there was one thing that I like about TNA Impact, is a wrestler named Bully Ray. As some of you may or may not know, Bully Ray, used to Buh Buh Ray from the Dudley Boyz in WWE. Bully Ray is his TNA name. Most performers in TNA wrestling are really bad, but I think Bully Ray is the only one worth watching the show for. I think that is what keeps me watching TNA wrestling every week because of Bully Ray.

TNA Impact is just another version of the Attitude Era of WWE.

This segment from last night’s TNA Impact is creating a lot of controversy. Bully Ray put AJ Styles through the table off the ramp with the help of Ric Flair. You can tell TNA Impact have been borrowing these things from WWE.

Last night’s TNA was actually a good show last night. The company seems to be getting better.
