When it comes to the sport of wrestling, there’s very few people bigger than Ric Flair. He’s one of the tops in the field and certainly a wrestling legend.
Both Billy and Chris are huge fans of WWE and consequently, it’s current and latter day stars.
They headed out to meet as many wrestlers as they could and low and behold, finally got a photo (albeit with a fail mixed in) with Ric Flair himself!
Check out the recap Chris sent in below!
Billy Beer and I are waiting in the hotel lobby to meet some WWE wrestlers. Billy notices WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair sitting at the bar. It’s 7:00am. I couldn’t contain my excitement! We approach Ric Flair and humbly ask for a photo. He declines. Not surprising. I am crushed none the less. This is the 5th time he has thwarted my efforts to document our encounter. I don’t understand why one of my childhood heroes will sign, but never take a photo.
Billy and I continue our search for more wrestlers, and minutes later run into John Cena. A huge diss from one of the biggest dick I have ever met. John Cena’s celebrity status has no doubt given him a swollen head.
As other wrestlers are entering the lobby, and being nice as apple pie, I encounter Ric Flair once again, adorned in classic Ric Flair flair. His face would be etched into stone if there was a Mount Rushmore for wrestlers. I nervously ask him once again for a photo, and to my disbelief he agrees. Ric Flair and I throw up the 4 Horsemen sign and the rest is history.
A SummerSlam weekend success. WOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
