In honor of Ric Flair, a legendary wrestler considered by many to be the GOAT (hey, if his Wikipedia says it, it’s gotta be true, right?), turning 68 over the weekend, WWE released a YouTube clip of his “wildest outbursts” in celebration of successfully staving off death for a 68th consecutive year. Happy birthday, Nature Boy.
This clip is especially relevant given that it comes on the heels of Flair’s online beef with Connor McGregor, whom flair accused of “buil[ding] a career copying [his] persona.”
I mean, he’s right. While McGregor might be known as the current king of trash talk in the world of professional fighting, we all know who invented the practice.
Here’s to you, Ric Flair, on your 68th birthday. Now, go get married a fifth time* and stop tearing your cashmere sweaters off.
*My absolute favorite comment from that Instagram post: “Yeah suck her soul to get your youth back.” Safe to say I find little to no utility in the idea of living past 60.
