“Whoooo!” Happy Birthday to retired professional wrestler the “Nature Boy” Ric Flair. Flair, best known for his time with World Wrestling Federation (later World Wrestling Entertainment) is considered by many as one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time. WWE’s website lists Flair as a 16-time World Heavyweight Champion. Flair would enter the ring dripped in extravagant robes that were lined with features and adorned with sequins. Oh! In case I lost you, “Drip” is slang used to describe a nice outfit. Flair’s eye-catching image was the focus of the song “Ric Flair Drip” by rapper Offset. Flair himself appears in the music video. Careful, the language makes it NSFW.
