In what may be the most unexpected bit of celebrity gossip you’ve ever heard, WWE Hall of Famer “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair claims that back in 1997, Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry rode “Space Mountain.” For the uninitiated, Space Mountain is in quotes there because “Space Mountain” is what Ric Flair calls his penis. Weirdly, this is common knowledge to wrestling fans. Ric Flair said he had sex with Halle Berry, you guys.
The exchange happened on the most recent edition of The Ric Flair Show podcast, thanks to a question in the “Ask Naitch” segment of the program asked by a man named “Goober.” (I swear to God I’m not making this up.) Goober asks if Flair has hooked up with any celebrities, and Flair claims to have bedded “several dozen,” casually mentioning that he was Halle Berry’s rebound lay following her divorce.
Flair: Do you want me to start with Halle Berry, or what?
Podcast co-host Conrad Thompson: Oh! Halle Berry rode Space Mountain?
Flair: [laughs] Of course she did. She was in Atlanta and she had just gotten divorced from Dave Justice.
Thompson: Wait, are you telling a real story right now?
Flair: Would I have to make up a lie?
Thompson: No. I just didn’t know that, uh…
Flair: You never asked me.
“You know what happens when a toad has sex with Ric Flair? The same thing that happens to everything else.”
