During his professional career, Ric Flair never failed to make a headline which spanned for almost four decades. But his life resume does not just include accolades, achievements and awards from his time in 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 – there are so many wrestling legends that are waiting to get their spot in the WWE Hall of Fame nominee. While others are waiting for years now, Flair managed to be inducted not once but twice in the past years. It is pretty impressive for a man who has done serious work inside the ring.
Reason number 2. He was considered throwing his hat into different rings – Flair is globally popular but wait until you see him in 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 actually made Flair to give up his ambitions and stay on the side and just shows supports to whom he think is worthy of the position.
Reason number 3. Real life feuds are as legendary as his in-ring matches – Flair has got feuds with Sting, Dusty Rhodes, Harley Race and Ricky Steamboat, all of which are big names in the wrestling industry where he always came up victorious of every battle.
In reality, in Ric Flair “To be the Man”, his autobiography, he is criticizing Bret Hart for overexploiting his brother’s death, Owen Hart and also, the controversy that’s surrounding Montreal Screwjob. Flair has claimed too that Hart was just popular in Canada and he was never a big shot 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. Basically, in those towns, they even celebrate “Ric Flair Days” like it was a national holiday.
Reason number 5. Humble – one thing that you will be surprised about Ric Flair is the fact that outside the ring, he is very humble, far from his persona inside the ring.
