Don’t think Hulk Hogan’s Stanley Cup prediction is the only pro sports finals call by a 1980s wrestling icon made this week. The Golden State Warriors are taking on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2015 NBA Finals, and 16-time World Champion “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair has chosen sides.
Flair wanted it in four? Big surprise.
Unfortunately for Naitch, the Warriors took Game 1, 108-100, so Slick Ric should start hoping he’s not on the opposite end of a sweep by then. Maybe he can do a run-in and shift the momentum in Cleveland’s favor by dropping an elbow on a Warriors jersey.
