Ric Flair is one of the most famous pro wrestlers ever and he also lived a life of luxury. Flair has said as much of late as he has battled a life threatening illness that was brought on in part by his lifestyle and an addiction to alcohol that Flair denied for years, but admitted it has been something he realizes now.
While his 16 World Championships are tied for the most all-time with John Cena, Flair mentioned another number during the filming of his 30 for 30 special that will debut on ESPN this November. According to People, Flair claimed in the documentary that he has had sex with 10,000 women in his lifetime.
When Flair was interviewed by People a few weeks ago, he said “I wish I hadn’t said that, because of my grandkids,” and added, “I only love one now.”
Flair, who has been married and divorced four times, is currently engaged to Wendy Barlow, who long time WCW fans may remember as “Fifi” the maid during part of his WCW run in the early 1990s. Barlow has been by Flair’s side during his health problems.
If you have ever heard Flair cut a promo on a wrestling show whether it was the NWA, WCW, WWE or TNA, he always made references to “Space Mountain.” He really wasn’t talking about the Disney ride, kids. He was referring to a different ride, if you catch my drift.
Is he being honest with that number? There’s really no way of knowing, but Flair was in the public eye going back to the mid 70s and stopped wrestling for WWE in 2008 when he was nearly 60 years old. Wrestlers do tend to exaggerate and sensationalize things, though, so take it with a grain of salt. There’s no way of knowing for sure anyway.
In other Flair news, his new book “Second Nature” written with his daughter Charlotte Flair was released recently and you can pick it up on Amazon as well as bookstores everywhere.
