This man.

To beat the man you got to be the man
This force of the nature.

Wooooh
The ultimate show man.

Ric Flair
A man that became the man he always wanted to be.

You cannot get unfazed by this nature boy. His undeniable energy, his intensity and his love for the business.

He passed the torch to the next generation of legends like him. Ricky Steamboat, Sting, Vader, Kerry Van Erich and Bret Hart to name of few. Even if in my humble opinion his match were pretty predictable, he did put those amazing wrestlers to another level.

Right now, Ric Flair is fighting probably his biggest fight. Correction. He was always a fighter since his childhood and it wasn’t easy for him. Life is a road of challenge. Fans around the world are praying for him.

When Roddy Piper and Dusty Rhodes passed away, I was so crushed. I felt like when Macho Man die that I lost one of my favorite uncle. Yesterday, I didn’t expect to hear this really sad news. It’s bittersweet to think about them all.

I don’t remember exactly when was the first time I lay my eyes on Ric by watching wrestling in our big 80’s television. His long platinum hair, his bling, his jacket went off somewhere, he couldn’t stand still and I was hooked but I was like in a mode of what the hell am I seeing…

You can feel the bond he share with his brothers. Family for life!

Dusty Rhodes and him, omg, that was pure magic. Like it was dynamite.

He got some flaws and he wasn’t the most perfect guy like no one is perfect but we are all rooting for him right now.

In the winter 1992, my mom had this pink bathroom robe that she never use it (I still couldn’t understand why). And I would wait for her to go out make some errands and I would wear it (I was 9) and walk in it like I was Ric Flair. Playing his entrance music in my head, making this face of I’m the best of the best and make a 180 degree turn in slow motion and putting my mom diamonds rings that were clearly too big for me.

Here some magical matchs of  him:

My smile is slowly making a comeback while I watch those videos.

You can see sparkle into his eyes when he see Charlotte and all she have accomplish. Wrestling does bring family closer in some case. It’s really beautiful to see the both of them together.
