    Man, I was 5-years-old back then and just starting to get into wrestling. This was still the “territory” days and I grew up in the northeast so it was rare when I got to see Ric Flair and anything NWA related. I remember Hulk Hogan being larger than life and all over the TV, but Ric Flair was almost mythical since I rarely got to see him.

    On a side note, when I first saw The Rock debut in 96/97, he was Rocky Maivia and fans were booing the hell out of him and I thought, “No way this guy is going to last.” Whelp…

    This reminds me of the picture from The Office where young Michael Scott is shaking hands with Ed Truck, his old boss

    What terrible timing to post this with the reemergence of Flairs rape accusations causing him to trend on Twitter.
