Description

As with the previous video, I ask that you keep in mind that the footage of Flair that isn't owned by WWE isn't exactly easy to find in high numbers, so please remember that if you have a gripe with the moves chosen, or of a clip. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! Time to highlight the limousine riding, jet flying, kiss stealing, wheelin' dealin' son of a gun. Ric Flair is someone that needs no introduction, but at the same time, one could literally write a book detailing every one of his accomplishments. Ric began his career in the early 1970s, and won the Rookie of the Year honor from some of the most prestigious wrestling magazines of the time. However, that was almost taken away after Flair was involved in a horrific plane crash, leaving him with a broken back. However, he defied the doctors by not only walking again, but by stepping into the ring. Since then, Flair has seen an incredibly storied career. In the turn of the decade, Flair won the NWA World Heavyweight Title, and defended it worldwide against such competition as Jumbo Tsuruta. Back in the states, Flair would align himself with Ole and Arn Anderson, as well as Tully Blanchard, and during a promo, the Four Horsemen name was born, and the rest is history. Flair would go on to win the World Heavyweight Title a grand total of sixteen times, and in 1992, after a dispute with management, jumped to the WWF, and retained ownership of the NWA World Heavyweight belt. Thus, after winning the WWF World Heavyweight Title, he became the undisputed World Heavyweight Champion. Eventually, he would return to WCW, and wreak more havoc with another incarnation of the Horsemen. After WCW's demise, he naturally jumped aboard the WWF, and while there, he would hold the Intercontinental and Tag Team Titles, and would form Evolution with Triple H, Batista, and Randy Orton. The man went out in style, with a retirement match fit for royalty against Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania XXIV. It was always said "To be the man, you gotta beat the man." And in his career, very few men could boast that they'd beaten the man. The Figure Four Leglock is certainly Flair's most recognizable move, and his finisher of choice throughout his entire career.
