"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.
In 2007, Flair ventured into the political realm with his vocal support for Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, who later dropped out of the race. Flair has hinted that he may run for the governorship of North Carolina in the future.
