Highlight Reel: Flair for the Gold

In Highlight Reel, 3MB will look at funny and interesting wrestling videos

It’s playoff season in the NFL. All the remaining teams are competing to earn a spot at the SuperBowl on February 1st and will do anything to get there. In looking for inspiration, players are reaching to one of the most successful champions of all time, the 16 time World Champion, the “Nature Boy” Ric Flair. Back in 2013, the St. Louis Rams and the Seattle Seahawks had a Flair-off in one game, and it wasn’t even a playoff game!

The Rams’ Chris Long started to style and profile after sacking the Seahawks’ Russell Wilson. Not to be outdone, Walter Thurmond broke out his best “Naitch” after taking down Kellen Clemens.

And last year, the San Francisco 49ers asked Ric to give them a pep talk during their playoff run. But this year, the Flair moment to beat belongs to the Indianapolis Colts’ Sergio Brown.

After the Colts’ victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, Brown led the locker room is a picture perfect imitation of a classic Ric Flair promo. After invoking Flair-isms (limousine riding, jet flying, kiss stealing, wheeling dealing…), he ended with “two claps and a Ric Flair,” which is how 3ManBooth will now end every meeting.

Not to be outdone, Flair called in to speak to Brown on Sirius XM’s NFL Opening Drive.

Sergio reveals that the Nature Boy has been an inspiration since training camp and Flair reveals that despite allegiances, he’s eager to see what the Colts will do in the playoffs. Just remember: whenever you need a pep talk, give me two claps and a Ric Flair!
