At 68 years young, Ric Flair is now a one woman man. After being married and divorced four times, the Nature Boy has allegedly changed his ways since meeting his current fiancee Wendy Barlow, who he worked with in the WCW back in the 90s and who has been by his side through the various health scares he’s endured recently.
But, as the Tennessee native admits in an ESPN 30 for 30 special to air in November, he’s put up Wilt Chamberlain numbers in the bedroom during his illustrious wrestling career, bedding roughly 10,000 women in his lifetime who just couldn’t resist Flair’s flare.
“What I said was the truth, but I feel bad now that I said some of it. Ten thousand women,” Flair told PEOPLE at a rehab facility. “I wish I hadn’t said that because of my grandkids.”
Flair has famously referred to his crotch rocket under the euphemism “Space Mountain,” claiming it was “oldest ride with the longest line.” Last year on the Ric Flair Show podcast, The Nature Boy made the claim that “several dozen” celebrities have taken a ride on Space Mountain, including Halle Berry. Berry flat-out denied this claim, going so far to say that she’s never even heard of him.
So does this shatter Flair’s credibility about the 10,000 chicks claim? No, I choose to believe it doesn’t. Even if the math is wild.
Flair is 68 years old — so if he started banging at 15 … we’re talking an average of 188 women per year (or 3.6 women per week). [h/t TMZ]
Please put on your headphones and take 20 seconds to watch Ric Flair passionately advocate Space Mountain. Absolutely electric.
I’d skip my grandmother’s funeral to catch this 30 for 30 debuting November 7.
