Jim Harbaugh Is Bringing Ric Flair To Michigan’s National Signing Day

More like the WOO-verines, am I right?

Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh — a man of sleepovers, subtweets and snapchats — has WWE on the brain. He wants to bring WrestleMania to The Big House in Ann Arbor, and now he’s bringing the dirtiest player in the game, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair, to Michigan’s National Signing Day.

In other words, to be the man, you’ve got to meet the man.


Michigan has been periodically revealing its attention-grabbing guest list during the past week on social media. Others expected to attend include pro wrestler Ric Flair, rap artist Migos and Heisman Trophy winner Desmond Howard.

The show, dubbed the “Signing of the Stars,” fits with the approach that Harbaugh and his staff have taken in recruiting since he arrived at his alma mater a year ago … The invite-only event will be held in a 3,500-seat auditorium on Michigan’s campus and is being used to raise funds to fight childhood cancer in memory of Chad Carr, the grandson of former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr, who died in November.

This is your best opportunity to see Ric Flair drop Tom Brady with a low blow and dance on his jacket, so if you can get to the event, get to it. What better way to say, “I’m sorry, I love you?”
