** He has apparently retired for real as of late 2012, citing the heart attack suffered by Wrestling/JerryLawler a few months earlier as driving home the dangers of even a physically fit man of his age continuing to subject himself to the rigors of the ring. (Cue sighs of relief from his family, to say nothing of the internet.) Nowadays Flair is settling into the role of statesman.

* AffablyEvil: Was almost always this as a heel, especially in the 80's pre-Horsemen.

Added DiffLines:

* TrueCompanions: Him and Arn Anderson. Both men demonstrated this trope 2002 season of RAW when The Undertaker intentionally assaulted Double A to make Ric Flair "change his mind" about facing him in that year's Wrestlemania. Then, Ric Flair attacks The Undertaker with a large pipe while making it clear he's still not accepting the eventual Wrestlemania and warning him if he ever goes after one of his friends, especially Double A, he'll show him why he's the " the dirtiest player in the game". As for Double A, he told Ric Flair don't accept the match because of him while also stating he didn't want his career/or legacy to come crashing down because of "The Deadman".

** 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.

** His eldest son, David, known for his time in WCW from 1999 until the end. David would have been fine if they actually, well, trained him. ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hlO_1JGTww He had the charisma of a grape]], though.)

* BlondGuysAreEvil: For most of his career, Flair dyed his hair blond while using villainous tactics. Any resemblance to [[VideoGame/FatalFury Geese Howard]] is coincidental.

** 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.
