Popularly known by the moniker ‘The Nature Boy’, Ric Flair is a retired professional wrestler most famous for his extravagant lifestyle with an addiction to alcohol and women.
He was once the face of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA ) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and is regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time.
The first-ever WCW champion, Flair has held the World Championship for a record 16 times.
Ric Flair was born Fred Phillips on February 25, 1949, in Memphis, Tennessee, to Luther and Olive Phillips.
However, he was later adopted from the Tennessee Children’s Home Society by Richard Reid Fliehr and Kathleen Virginia Kinsmiller and was named Richard Morgan Fliehr. His adoptive father worked as a physician while his adoptive mother was an actress.
He then moved with his new family to Edina, Minnesota, where he attended the Wayland Academy. In school, he was an active sportsman with a keen interest in football, track, and wrestling.
He became an amateur wrestler even before enrolling with the University of Minnesota on a football scholarship and dropped out of college soon after completing his freshman year.
While working as a bouncer at a club, he happened to meet Olympic weightlifter, Ken Patera, who introduced him to American Wrestling Association (AWA) promoter, Verne Gagne. Gagne agreed to take Flair under his wing and had him registered as a member of his training class.
The first few years of the Turner led company were marred by bad decisions. The worst one involved Ric Flair leaving WCW with the title belt.
The belt appeared on WWE television until legal actions forced them to stop. Ric Flair took on Bobby “The Brain” Heenan as his executive consultant and Mr. Perfect as his trainer.
Eventually, Flair sold his belt back to WCW. After a couple of controversial WWF Title changes between the Undertaker and Hulk Hogan, the President of the WWF declared the title vacant and announced that the winner of the 1992 Royal Rumble would be the new WWF World Heavyweight Champion.
The Royal Rumble was held in Albany, New York on January 19, 1992. After drawing number three, Flair proved why he has been called “the 60-minute man”.
Flair outlasted the other 29 WWF superstars (eliminating the British Bulldog, Big Boss Man, Randy Savage & Sid Justice) to win the Royal Rumble and the WWF World Title for the first time.
He was in the ring for just over an hour, setting the record for the longest time in the ring in a Royal Rumble. He held the title until April 5 that same year, when he lost to “Macho Man” Randy Savage in Indianapolis, Indiana.
In Hershey, PA, Flair won the title back from Savage on September 1, 1992, with a little help from newcomer Razor Ramon. He held the title for just over a month when Bret “The Hitman” Hart defeated him on October 12.
After this, Mr. Perfect and Ric Flair had a dispute and split up. Flair and his new discovery, Razor Ramon, had a series of matches with Mr. Perfect and Savage.
This feud eventually led to a loser leaves WWF match between Flair and Perfect. Flair lost this match and made his way back to World Championship Wrestling.
Ric Flair is the only two-time inductee of the WWE ‘Hall of Fame’.
The first time he was inducted with the class of 2008 for his contribution to wrestling as an individual wrestler and the second time in 2012 as one of the members of the team ‘The Four Horsemen’.
Ric Flair first married Leslie Goodman on August 28, 1971. Together the couple had two children Megan and David. The legally couple parted way in 1983 after being together for 12 years.
In the same year on August 27, 1983, Flair married Elizabeth Harrell. The couple had two children together Ashley and Reid. Elizabeth even appeared on WCW on several occasions. The couple, however, separated in 2006.
On 27 May 2006, Flair married Tiffany VanDemark. But their marriage was short-lived and their divorce was finalized in 2009.
Following the same trend, Flair went on to marry his fourth wife in the same year as his divorce with VanDemark.
He tied the knot with Jacqueline “Jackie” Beems on November 11. However, this marriage too did not last long and the couple officially separated in 2014.
Flair got engaged to his girlfriend Wendy Barlow in July 2016.
