Ric Flair, the Nature Boy, is one of the most legendary figures in all of pro wrestling.

His commanding presence, style, and cockiness, to go along with his incomparable charisma, have made him a larger-than-life figure.

An important factor that made him an icon was his legendary beer-drinking habits, which are now also inseparable from his character and heritage.

This Fan Arch feature explores the life and legacy of former professional wrestler Ric Flair, particularly concerning the charm of beer, as this man is notorious for getting down on a pint or two.

Origins And Career In Wrestling

Richard Morgan Fliehr, better known as Ric Flair, entered the world of pro wrestling in the early 1970s.

His love for the game influenced him to start his lifetime career in wrestling, and he debuted professionally in 1972. Flair later learned his craft from multiple wrestling organizations that saw his talent and charisma before gaining star status.

"Nature Boy"

Flair's wrestling career ascended with a five-time championship winning streak and the self-made moniker of "The Nature Boy."

With unique athleticism and near-legendary charisma, have become a household name and a focal point for WWE's talented roster both on the mic and in the ring.

With his dazzling robes, confident demeanor, and "Wooo" signature catchphrase, Ric Flair made himself a living legend in professional wrestling.

Tipsy on Beer

During his wrestling career, Ric Flair became known for his extravagant lifestyle indeed, which he personified through heavy drinking and constant partying.

He freely confessed to putting away beers and mixed drinks by the case and tumbler, usually to douse the stress and burdens of his calling.

This unapologetic style of indulgence and fun-loving nature won him the reputation of arguably the archetypal party animal.

How This Affected His Wrestling Performance

The way Flair so easily cavorted with beer-swilling and merriment on the commoner's side often did a disservice to his wrestling performance and the cultivated image of his and his personal life.

A legendary ironman in the ring, his benders began to take a toll on his body as he aged into health scares and personal struggles.

His prolific talent was sometimes overshadowed by a lifestyle that became a big part of his identity and, ultimately, his downfall.

 

Ultimately, Ric Flair is, and will always be, a wrestling icon.

A career that sure had its share of ups and downs, it remains in the hearts of fans and wrestling fans around the globe.

The Nature Boy is but a few examples, a living testament to what it means to be a genuinely larger-than-life character in professional wrestling.
