Ric Flair is synonymous with wrestling as Tom Brady is with the NFL. Flair, born Richard Morgan Fliehr, was able to create one of the greatest wrestling personas in the sports history. Flair was a mix of style, with his Gordon Gekko like flashy presence, and a big mouth with his Mohammad Ali, Floyd Mayweather, Jr., and when it got really crazy, Hector “Macho” Camacho like bravado. Flair boasted about living large and flying high, and outside the ring he lived his gimmick as they say. Flair has been married 5 times and has claimed to have slept with over 10,000 women!
