"The Nature Boy" Ric Flair

What's the story

The WWE has announced that in two weeks, they will be holding a special celebration to honour and pay tribute to "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair on his 70th birthday live from Atlanta, Georgia.

In case you didn't know...

Ric Flair is without a doubt one of the greatest wrestling legends in the history of our great sport (yes, I say this in Tony Schiavone's voice folks!). He is a 16-time former World Heavyweight Champion, along with many accolades, including a two-time WWE Hall of Fame induction for his wrestling career and run as the ringleader of the 4-Horsemen, respectively.

His rivalries with the likes of Rick "The Dragon" Steamboat, Sting, Hulk Hogan, "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes, Terry Funk, Harley Race and countless other performers are timeless.

Ric Flair officially retired from the wrestling business in 2012 following his regretful run with TNA (Impact Wrestling) and eventual return to the WWE in sporadic appearances. His legacy is carried on through his daughter and former seven-time WWE Women's Champion, Charlotte Flair.

The heart of the matter

During tonight's edition of Monday Night RAW, the WWE announced they will be celebrating "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair's 70th birthday live on RAW, which will most likely feature special guests from Flair's past in terms of fellow wrestlers, legends, and so on.

What's next
