Richard Morgan Fliehr [1949 - Present]
"The Nature Boy"
"The Dirtiest Player in the Game"
"To be the Man, you've got to beat the Man"
A sixteen-time World Heavyweight Champion, the "Nature Boy" stands among the greats of the wrestling business. His career spans more than 35 years and includes runs in the AWA, NWA, WCW and the WWE (formerly WWF). "Slick Ric's" mic skills propelled him to the top of the wrestling business when storylines and interviews were prized more then sheer muscle mass. Elaborate robes, a mane of platinum blonde hair, loud chops, an eye poke, the Figure Four leglock, and the Flair Flop have made "The Dirtiest Player in the Game" one of the legends of wrestling. To Be the Man, Flair's autobiography, was published in 2004. Flair's storied professional wrestling career came to an end at WrestleMania XXIV on March 30, 2008, when he was defeated by Shawn Michaels. He is the only wrestler to be inducted twice into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Anyone who believes ric flair is one of the best wrestlers of all time is oblivious to the business he was the most overrated in ring technicians ever he was the best on the mic and had good ring psychology but if u seen one ric flair match u seen them all certainly no bret hart or ricky the Dragon steamboat
Rich Flair is Thee Man! I used to watch him as a young man growing up, and, he was and is the shiyet! He stomped the crap outta every opponent! So,to the woman,calling him an ass, you are bitter because he wouldn't bang you!
"The man the man, the need to beat the man, your have to walk the aisle, Whoooo"
Rick flair by far will be the best World Heavy Wight Champion ever 16 times going to miss him by champ rick flair

Rick flair greatest wrestler of all time wooooo
Different people have different attitudes when it comes to Flair's arrogance...BUT....I have heard from personal friends how 1 time while wrestling at Waynesboro (Va) High School his house was burning down in the Charlotte area. Even with all the tension, it was still to be heard "Yes sir; no sir" as he responded to questions being directed his way that night .. very respectful.
IDNUAHSYANDUHABNDAYNS ALA ALBERTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DEL RRRRRIIOOOO

Rick Flair, the very best in the world!! Very sad day when the 16 time champ hung up the boots, but he will be remember as the man! not enough words to describe what Mr. Flair has meant to the Wrestling World! He will always be the real champion!! I will miss watching him, this sport will never be the same!
One of the greatest story of pro wrestling this guy has it all more talent in his little finger then the guys of today. Ric flair is simply the best.
rick great wwwwwwwwwwhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!
The figure-four leg lock was very likely the greatest wrestling move ever created (possibly second only to the "pile-driver"). I lived below a wrestler at one time and asked him to "put it on me gently." He did so very gently, and you would not believe the pain from simple leverage!! Flair ended many of his matches with this devastating move and I do bleieve that very often the pain and anguish you saw on the opposing wrestler's face was real. It is a move where there is no external physical or long-lasting damage (like cutting their foreheads with razors) and no bruises. Maybe that is why Flair picked that particular close. I would love to know who taught it to him....
To BigBen: Better to have Andy Kaufman and David Arquette on this site than Kevin Federline! (BTW - I officially lost any and all respect for John Cena when he did the J.O.B. for K-Fed; kayfabe or not, you gotta draw the line somewhere, man.)
"Space Mountain may be the oldest ride in the park, but it still has the longest line, baby! WOOOOOOO!!!" All reminiscences aside though, let's hope Ric comes to his senses and doesn't make a return to wrestling while he's in TNA. After all, Abdullah the Butcher is set to make another comeback (I believe it's going to be with the Insane Clown Posse's "Juggalo" wrestling promotion). He's just asking for trouble because he is over 70 years old. Flair isn't quite that old, but he's knocking real hard on the door of 60 and should probably stay as a manager, for the sake of his health if not for his reputation. (Imagine that - the "dirtiest player in the game" has an AARP card!)
i have watched ric flair for 32 years i love to watch him .i would to meet him one day he is the MAN
A great comedian but was not believable as a wrestler. Who's next?? David Arquette??

best........ wrestler......................................................................................................................................................................................................................ever :]
Christina youre either a liar or or an idiot. I have never EVER known Ric to be an ass to anyone that didnt have it coming. Nicest pro wrestler I ever met.
Ric is back! (April 2009)
Rick Falir sucks, i met him once and he is an ass.
Of course Jerry Lawler later revealed that the whole feud with Kaufman was worked or a kayfabe. He and Kaufman were in fact extremly good friends. A fact that Lawlwer kept with him long after Kaufman's death. It was finally revealed as a kayfabe in the biopic Man on the Moon and later confirmed in Lawler's own biography It's Good To Be The King... Sometimes.
Well Flair has went through a lot. He alsmot died in a tragic airplane accident when he just got into wrestling. Other wrestlers died in the accident but Flair survived. You can do a web search on his life and more on the accident.
Hard to belive that anyone could still wrestle at his age.he was one of the luckey ones to get out alive. How many 59 year old men could do half of what he can still do in the ring. Rick Flair will be missed!!
Tonight March 31, 2008 was a sad night for wrestling and wrestling fans around the world with the announcement of Ric Flair's retirement. He is one of the last great legends of his time and I sure wrestling will never be the same. We will miss you Ric.
