On May 31, 2021, former WWE Superstar Andrade posted a reel on Instagram. The caption was, “Un amigo!! Suplex. Great time with Ric Flair and family. #suplex #wooo #tranquilo #riveramaya #family #wrestling 👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼

The reel shows Andrade performing a suplex on the ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, his future father-in-law, to be precise.

Hopefully, no family drama ensues from this friendly move.

We can confirm that no WWE Hall of Famers were injured during the making of the video. Everyone seems to be enjoying the sun and the suplex, Ric Flair included! It may have reminded him of his younger years in the wrestling business.

The caption in Spanish read ‘Un amigo’ meaning ‘A friend’ in English, and ‘The Queen‘ Charlotte Flair is heard laughing in the background. Can family fun get better than this?

Flair’s battle with anxiety

Fans would be glad to see the 16-time World Champion smiling about and having fun. We say this, because in an interview with Ariel Helwani, Flair revealed how he struggled with anxiety. He confessed that talking to people helped him through his anxiety. He said,

“Thank god I could talk. Didn’t throw off my thought process with talking. It seems to be all forgotten but the truth is that there are certain people, and you’ll find that out as you get older, there are people in your life that you’re never gonna ever forget, for being there when you needed them. They didn’t need to be there. That would be Vince [McMahon], Hunter [Triple H], Stephanie [McMahon], my daughters, you know what I mean.”

He explained how in an unsympathetic world like this, the only way to beat anxiety is to hang in there, talk to people, and open up to them.
