Bring Wrestlemania to Your Event with Ric Flair | MN2S

A legendary name within the WWE franchise, we look back at the Wrestlemania Icon, Ric Flair.

Professional wrestling is a sport which, more than most, is imbued with an air of fun and theatricality. Although wrestling is far removed from the excesses of the popular WWF TV show of the 1990s and 00s, it’s a sport which still holds huge attraction to many people because of it.

WWE programming has been on the air since the 1950s, but it was in the eighties that the genre of staged, theatrical wrestling we are used to first became popular. Thanks to characters like Hulk Hogan and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, a formerly fringe sport became one of TV’s most talked about.

This nostalgia is something that you could surely capitalise on by booking a professional wrestler for your event; someone like the talented Ric Flair.

 

Who is Ric Flair?

Wrestling was in the blood for this all-American star, who didn’t allow any of the setbacks he faced to stop him from achieving his dream. He was first spotted in high school and won two state wrestling championships in high school, before winning a football scholarship to college.

 

He dropped out of college, but was spotted for the second time after college; he went on to be coached by renowned trainer Verne Gagne. In a third brush with failure, Flair was in a serious plane accident aged just 26. Doctors told him he would never fight again, but despite breaking his back in three places, he was wrestling again just six months later.

Fame and fortune followed including sixteen world titles and the title of, ‘Professional Wrestling Illustrated Wrestler of the Year’ a record six time, more than any other athlete. He appeared regularly for the WWE and his flamboyant style ensured that he found plenty of fans the world over.

Now signed to the WWE legends programme, Flair continues to coach wrestling and act as an advocate and spokesperson for the sport. For any audience with fond memories of watching WWE, he’s sure to be a hit when it comes to entertainment ideas, combining showmanship, a fascinating story and a healthy dose of nostalgia.
