Ric Flair is one of professional wrestling’s true legends. The Nature Boy has crossed over into mainstream pop culture like very few grapplers before him. Despite his controversies, Ric remains an iconic figure.

Flair recently announced that he was splitting from partner Wendy Barlow. Barlow had famously stood by her man during a health scare a few years ago. Wendy also had Ric’s back during a firestorm of criticism after the Dark Side of the Ring documentary on WWE’s Plane Ride from Hell.

The Nature Boy didn’t take too long to get back into the public eye after the split. Ric Flair appeared at a recent Texas Tech men’s basketball game to hype up the crowd. Flair shared the video on Twitter.

“Your Ultimate Hype Man! The Crowd Last Night Was Magnificent & The Energy Was Electric! Thanks To @GorillaLawFirm For Having Me! I’ll Be A Part Of The Red Raider Family Forever! WOOOOO! @TexasTechMBB”


Flair and Barlow had been living separate lives for months before their breakup. The two saw tremendous hardships together. Ric believes Wendy deserved the opportunity to be her own person.

Now that the relationship is officially over, Ric Flair is focused on doing what he does best: Performing for the fans. While his in-ring days appear to be long over, it’s Flair’s charisma that made him one-of-a-kind. It looks like Flair is ready to take that show back on the road.
