Now that that's out of our system...
He was the kiss stealing, limousine riding, jet flying son of a gun who kissed all the girls and made them cry. In the ring, the man and to be the man you had to beat the man. He was the original Space Mountain ride. There aren’t many wrestlers or fans who don’t universally agree that Ric Flair was the best there was and if you didn’t love it, you had to learn to respect it.
The 16 time World Heavyweight Champion, the "Nature Boy" Ric Flair has been in the business of professional wrestling for over 40 years. That means over 40 years of stories from the rigors of the road. But when you’re the caliber of performer Ric Flair is, you don’t really just go home and be Richard Fleihr – the guy was on all of the time. No matter the promotion, no matter whether he was home or in the ring, Ric Flair was Ric Flair and lived the gimmick of being the Nature Boy, wining and dining all over the globe.
Good, bad, unbelievable, or just plain inconceivable – there are a ton of Ric Flair stories circulating the internet and if you have the WWE Network, just watch the guy on Legends of Wrestling. Not matter the topic of the episode, the other panelists and Flair inevitably circulate to the Nature Boy to hear his opinions and personal recollections. Don’t worry, they’re not all stories of wild debauchery, but they are all insane and crazy Ric Flair stories.

1 The Horsemen at the Marriott
At their height, not a single person or entity could touch the Four Horsemen. Flair himself has joked that if they ran in the WWE with Vince's backing they'd still be over to this day. As Flair lived his gimmick, so did the rest of the Horsemen and one night in Baltimore, Flair let all the ladies know that the Horsemen were staying at the Marriott and to come on over, but no boyfriends or husbands allowed. There were over 300 women packed into the hallway of the hotel. Flair would start telling the ladies in every town where the Horsemen were going to be that night. It's a wonder how Flair had four marriages, let alone one!
