Ric Flair celebrates his birthday in style

Following the countless wishes, Ric Flair shared two posts on his social media accounts. The first one is his picture and in the second one, he thanked his family for “Staying With Me Through Good Times And Bad! My Life Couldn’t Be Better!”

 

Flair is a record 16-time world champion and a two-time Hall of Famer, with a career spanning almost four decades. Following his in-ring career, he mentored future WWE superstars in his daughter Charlotte, Sasha Banks, Bayley, and Becky Lynch during their NXT days.

Hence, the four women were deemed as the ‘Four Horsewomen,’ a nod to Flair’s legendary stable ‘Four Horsemen.’

Recently, he tried to ‘groom’ Lacey Evans. However, due to Evans’ pregnancy and Charlotte’s frustration, he ‘went home.‘ But he also said, “Okay, I’m Going Home, But I Can’t Promise That I Won’t Be Back!”

We wish the legend a very Happy 72nd Birthday and hope to see more of him in the future!
