I may have said this before, but I always hated Ric Flair. For the reasons I was supposed to. Plus, he kicked the stinger out of the horsemen. The more I grew up and realized how cool Flair’s gimmick was, it was too late, he was out of his prime.
I like how you said “for the right reasons”. That means Flair was pretty damn good at being a heel.
It struck me as about the saddest story.
Right, it definitely tugged at the heart strings. I never knew Flair's back story though - that he actually became the character he created and lived the Nature Boy lifestyle for so long. All while neglecting his wives and kids. It was just fascinating to me. Hard to believe he drank basically a 12-pack and pint of vodka every day for 40 years. Something in him is very broken and I'm still not sure he's figured it out. Even after his son's death and his rehab stints.
The saddest story is about David Woodley...Ensminger's team mate.
Alcoholism kills....every day.
Flair was the best at being a heel. So was Arn. Looking back, Arn was the best.
I think the wrestling world needs a Trump-Kim Jung Un tag team. That turns on each other during the match. Lol
Almost forgot about meeting Double J a while back
