Nature Boy Ric Flair, now 67 years old, just got engaged to his former ringside escort at WCW, Fifi the Maid, whose real name is Wendy Barlow.
Here’s a vintage promo from November 1993 that features Flair – with Fifi by his side – talking to Mean Gene Okerlund about Ric’s upcoming match with Big Van Vader at Starrcade.
You can see right then and there Fifi had Starrcades in her eyes for The Dirtiest Player in the Game. If you’re old enough or that diehard a wrestling fan, you might remember Fifi from Flair’s WCW interview segment “A Flair For the Gold” and from the episode of Celebrity Wife Swap when Ric swapped partners with Rowdy Roddy Piper in the summer of 2013. To this day, I still can’t believe that was a real show.
This is the fifth engagement for the 16-time world champion and he spared no expense on the rock. Here’s Wendy wearing the ring with Mean Joe Greene. Seems Fifi and Flair love people nicknamed “Mean”.
According to CageSideSeats, WWE is mulling over the idea of producing a documentary series about Flair’s four ex-wives titled, “The Wives of Flair”.
