That’s how you can be the man. Ric Flair is one of the most successful as well as unique wrestling personalities of all time. When you hear him talk out of character, he comes off as much more of a down to earth guy but at the same time, his wrestling persona is one of the most over the top in the world. It also has found its niche in pop culture and that was on display Wednesday night.
On Wednesday at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, Flair introduced Khalid for his concert. Flair has been known to be friends with various entertainers over the years and lives near Atlanta, allowing him to make the introduction for the concert. Flair has also remained semi-active in WWE, appearing at both WrestleMania 35 and Raw Reunion earlier this year.
As only he can do it. Check out Flair’s introduction at the concert:
Opinion: This is one of those things that Flair can do and just make work. He’s a legend in wrestling and that has spilled over to pop culture. The limousine riding, jet flying persona is something that is going to work very well in almost any time as it just comes off as cool. Yeah Flair can be a bit goofy at times, but this is something that not many people can do and he keeps doing it.
