Let’s All Watch This Awesome Ric Flair Promo About North Carolina
“Nature Boy” Ric Flair will forever be known as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, but part of what made him so special was his ability to perform on a microphone.
Never was this more evident than at a WCW Monday Nitro in March 1999, when Flair took center stage in Chapel Hill, NC (skip to 3:00 for the shameless UNC pandering):
WOO! I have chills every time I watch it.
This video should be mandatory footage for recruits each time they come to Chapel Hill. Roy Williams should memorize this word-for-word and replace the word “Hogan” with “Krzyzewski.” Larry Fedora should perfect his Nature Boy strut and attach a Vine of him strutting to each “HEEL YEAH!” tweet.
God bless you, Ric Flair. Long live the Nature Boy. Long live the Tar Heels.
