On February 25, 1949, a WWE legend was born. Richard Morgan Fliehr made his debut in the world. Little did the world know that Richard Morgan Fliehr would become the "limousine riding, jet flying, kiss stealing, wheeling and dealing, son of a gun" that would change the face of sports entertainment forever.
Through the years, Ric Flair impacted both the WWF/WWE and the WCW, making history and perfecting his famous Flair strut.
Flair is a 16-time world champion, and he has wrestled some of the toughest wrestlers to ever grace the squared circle. He is fearless, confident, and when he is down for the count, he kicks out at 2 and a half.
He demonstrated that last year when he suffered a major health setback. The world almost lost him. Death had him down for the pin, but Ric Flair kicked out at 2 and a half.
The WWE Universe is still blessed with his presence, and today he is celebrating 69 years of Flair struts.
Even though he is no longer wrestling, his legacy continues through his daughter, current Smackdown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair. She is a chip off the old block (positively speaking).
I want to wish the 2-time Hall of Famer the happiest of birthdays! Wooooooooooooooo!
