Place in History - Ric Flair is held up by many as the greatest pro-wrestler of all-time.  He was, in many ways, a complete package.  A dynamic personality with good in-ring talent and the ability to work with anyone.  His critics have knocked his formulaic style, goofy antics and unwillingness to get out of the ring, but Flair has been able to reach an echelon in the business that few have. "His match" worked for years as he toured the globe as NWA Champion and worked with all the local babyfaces.  His over-the-top persona complete with his bleach blond hair, sequined robes, strutting and trademark "woo" made him one of pro-wrestling's most lasting characters.  That allowed him to continue strong for another two decades after retirement was first almost forced upon him.  Ric Flair is one of those few in a million that can and will do anything to get to the top of their profession and only he can dictate when it's over.
