A professional wrestler since 1972, Ric Flair is generally considered to be one of, if not THE, best professional wrestler of all time. He was inducted into the Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2008 and currently wrestles as part of the WWE Legends league. Ric was born Richard Morgan Fliehr on February 25, 1949, in Memphis, Tennessee. He is considered to be one of the greatest professional wrestlers in the history of the sport with a professional career that spans more than four decades. Flair, who also goes by his nickname "The Nature Boy" first was introduced to the wrestling business when he met the legendary Vachon brothers. Flair was actually a medical student at Minnesota University, but dropped out of college to train for the mat. It was on December 10, 1972, when Flair made his professional debut in the wrestling ring opposite "Scrap Iron" George Gadaski. He spent the first several months of his career with Gagne's Minneapolis Boxing & Wrestling Club before he moved to Charlotte, North Carolina where he became a regular for Jim Crockett Promotions. In 1981, Ric won his first NWA World title. He has since enjoyed an extremely prolific wrestling career. Later in his career, he worked for both World Championship Wrestling, TNA Wrestling and Vince McMahon's WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment).
Ric Flair has been officially recognized as a World champion 21 times in total, garnering recognition from the NWA, WWE, and WCW (as well as the WCW spin-off group WCWI, or World Championship Wrestling International). This makes Flair the only man in the world of wrestling to hold all four versions of the title. Rick Flair has been married and divorced four times. Those marriages produced four children. Tragically, his youngest son Reid died of an overdose in 2013. His daughter Charlotte is a professional wrestler.
Financial Problems: Ric Flair has had a number of run-ins with the IRS dating back to the early 1990s. In 2000 the IRS hit him with an lien over $870,000 worth of unpaid taxes. The IRS started garnishing Flair's WWE earnings in 2005. He blamed the issues on his second wife Elizabeth's profligate spending.
According to legal filings released in 2019, Ric reportedly failed pay his full tax amounts for his earnings between 2016 and 2018. The filing showed that he owed the Federal government $240,000 and the state of Georgia $40,000. Also in 2019, Rick experienced a medical emergency requiring heart surgery that left him with a reported $1.8 million medical bill not covered by insurance.
