** Flair's appearance has always confused people. Most are young enough to remember him as a crazy old coot. But when you go and watch his pre-2000 work, it's surprising by how young he looks. It was probably from stress over what was going down at WCW when Hogan and his lot came in, aand Ric was getting humiliated in every direction while barely wrestling. After having to endure that, he fled to WWE for his last major runs and started aging at a rapid pace. (Basically Vince got the worst version of Flair, apart from the stint in '92.)

Wait, did I say calm visage?

* LargeHam: Chances are He's a relic of a time when superstars would dive into a mountain of coke before promos. Ric Flair's so continually buzzed that if ever stops being on space mountain he is going to keel over from the cumulative hangover. Alternatively he already has and we have been dealing with Zombie Flair would probably pronounce it, "'''''LAAAAAAAAARGE..... [[VerbalTic WOOO!!!]] BY GOD, HAM!!!'''''

** Flair is 65 as of 2014, but looks anicent. It's hard to believe that only 10 years had passed between [[http://blogbeckett.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/flairauto.jpg this image]] and [[http://crispycelebs.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Ric-Flair-2.jpeg this one.]] A life of touring, partying and getting dropped on the head for a living took its toll.

* YoungerThanTheyLook: Flair is 65 as of 2014, but looks much, MUCH older. It's hard to believe that only 10 years had passed between [[http://blogbeckett.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/flairauto.jpg this image]] and [[http://crispycelebs.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Ric-Flair-2.jpeg this one.]] A life of getting dropped on the head for a living took its toll.

Added DiffLines:

* TheAce: Widely considered the best pro wrestler '''ever'''. Not just by fans, but by plenty of wrestlers and publications. There's very little room for debate outside of HulkHogan, StoneColdSteveAustin and ShawnMichaels (the latter two openly say Flair was the best).

** Flair's daughter, Ashley (billed as Wrestling/{{Charlotte}})[[note]]Ric is billed from [MeaningfulName Charlotte, NC.]][[/note]] is a former NXT Women's Champion and current WWE Divas Champion. She will probably end up being the second-generation Flair who makes it in this business.

* RippedFromTheHeadlines: Of a sports variety. His classic rivalry with Wrestling/DustyRhodes was designed to mirror the Lakers-Celtics rivalry that was huge at the time, pitting the flashy, stylish and flamboyant (Flair/Lakers) against the no-nonsense, workmanlike, determined style (Rhodes/Celtics). It achieved massive success for both the [[Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance NWA]] and the [[UsefulNotes/{{Basketball}} NBA]].
