Ric Flair- The Nature Boy

Where is Ric Flair?

Richard Morgan “Ric” Flair, better known as Rick Fleur, was born in February 25th, 1949. He is an American former wrestler and considered as the top wrestler of all times. He is the only one man, who has been twice a member of the WWE Hall of Fame.

Ric reached the pick in his career in 1972, when he went through a lot of fighting companies to get in touch and fight against the best wrestlers and won many titles, with the final in being a member of the Four Horsemen wrestling group. In 2008 he was introduced to WWE’s Hall of Fame and retired from active action. Then in 2012, for the second time. The next two years, he signs contracts with different companies, and returns to action sporadically, until 2012, when he announced to finally withdrawing from the ring.

Fleur has a very busy and turbulent life. Having married for four times and has four children, he finally also became a grandfather, from his one daughter. Several times, the police officers had intervened to calm domestic conflicts. The police have also bothered for his own business and other cases, such as public quarrels and fights between him and other wrestlers, like Hulk Hogan, Bruno Sammartino and Eric Bischoff. Also, real and official rivalries with other wrestlers like with Bret Hart, the Shane Douglas and Mick Foley are known.

In 2017, Flair battled for his life, after a visit to the hospital with stomach pain. His condition fell down during four days when Flair was finally on life support. The doctors gave him only 20 percent odds of surviving. The result: intoxication of alcohol. The consequence: kidney failure, congestive heart failure, everything would shut down. Finally, he fell into a coma. He said:

“The joke was, with the doctors, that the only thing that was alive and kicking, sitting at the bar waiting for me, was my liver.”

Ric described his alcohol problems and alcohol abuse, less about the need to drink, and more about the attention and adoration that came with being out at bars, restaurants and other social outings. He said:

“I never, in my life, have drunk at home, alone. The social part that was me.”

After waking up in the hospital, he had a pacemaker installed. But he feels better, doing physical therapy and rehab to work on improving his motor skills after his long stretch on life support. He promised:

“I’ll never drink again, I never want to go through this again.”

He, finally, promote his new book, “Second Nature: The Legacy of Ric Flair and the Rise of Charlotte” giving an update on his life and his health.
