Ric Flair is one of the legends in the WWE business and despite his age, he still makes appearances on the screen
WWE has been blessed with several legends throughout its years, but few of them can compare to Ric Flair, even though age is catching up to him.
The Nature Boy, as he is still called, Flair is one of the pioneers in the wrestling business and won several titles throughout his career.
Ric Flair wrestling history
Flair started off his career first by training with Verne Gagne. He also fought in the American Wrestling Association and wrestled stars such as Andre the Giant and Dustin Rhodes.
The legend also fought in several promotions in Japan during the early 1970s. Even during his time in WWE, he made a few appearances in Asia and is revered all around the world.
Flair got his legendary nickname, The Nature Boy when he shifted to Jim Crockett’s National Wrestling Alliance (NWA).
The legend enjoyed a lot of success with that organisation and even formed the Four Horsemen before shifting to the then WWF (now WWE) in 1991.
Prior to his move to WWF, he was recognised as the WCW champion and returned to that brand in 1993.
He was one of the top stars in WCW too as the Monday Night Wars grew between WWE and WCW. Flair returned to WWE in 2001 and had stints in several other promotions such as TNA. He has since been seen only on WWE since 2012 but mostly in a non-wrestling role.
