Ahhhh this RIC FLAIR....
Real Name: Richard Fleihr
Alias: Nature Boy Ric Flair, Real Worlds Champion Ric Flair
Most Notable Titles: 13 time WCW Heavyweight Champion, 2 Time WWF Heavyweight Champion
Famous Feuds: Dusty Rhodes, Ricky Steamboat, Hulk Hogan, Terry Funk, Magnum T.A., The Rock and Roll Express, Randy Savage, Curt Hennig.
After dropping out of wrestling school three times, and being a mid carder his first couple years, Richard Fleihr struck gold as being the second
coming of the Nature Boy. He named himself after Buddy Rogers, borrowed his Figure Four Leg Lock and went on to great success in the NWA for the next
two decades. After winning many World titles, feuding with the greatest wrestlers the NWA had to offer and leading the Horsemen, he got into a dispute
with NWA/WCW management and went to the WWF. After making his way back to WCW in 1993, he began to feud with Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage and old
opponents like Sting. After a dispute over a day off in early 1998, the Nature Boy began sitting it out while he awaited the decision on a lawsuit
that may be the key to the rest of his career.
After sitting out most of the year due to the lawsuit, the Nature Boy finally made it back to the ring on September 14th, 1998. He was part of the
reforming of the Horsemen, with Arn Anderson as manager, and Dean Malenko, Chris Benoit, and Steve McMichael as stable mates. It looks like the Nature
Boy will be feuding with the likes of WCW President, Eric Bischoff for the remainder of 1998.
