E-MAIL ME YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT RIC FLAIR AT PDMJR26@AOL.COM AND I WILL POST YOUR COMMENTS ON THE VERY POPULAR MESSAGE BOARD. THANKS!!


KENNETH: HUGE HUGE FLAIR NEWS. I READ THAT VINCE MCMAHON WANTED RIC FLAIR TO SHOW UP ON RAW THIS MONDAY NIGHT FOR THE 800TH EPISODE SPECIAL. WOOOO HOW AWESOME WOULD THAT BE IF RIC IS ON THERE?? I HAVE NO CLUE IF FLAIR IS CONSIDERING IT OR NOT BUT I DID READ THAT VINCE WANTS FLAIR FOR MONDAY NIGHT. DON'T YOU THINK THAT THE REASON VINCE WANTS FLAIR TO APPEAR IS WERE THE RATINGS WILL SKYROCKET?? I MEAN LETS GET REAL THE RATINGS WITHOUT FLAIR HAVE BEEN SH#TTY AT BEST. I GUESS VINCE WANTS RATINGS AND YOU KNOW IF HE WANTS RATINGS YOU KNOW WHO HE CALLS ON.. THE KING OF RATINGS THE NATURE BOY RIC FLAIR!! FLAIR HAS PROVIDED MORE RATINGS THEN ANY OTHER PRO WRESTLER IN HISTORY!! IN THE 90'S DURING THE RAW VS. NITRO RATINGS WAR RIC FLAIR'S SEGMENTS CONSISTENTLY GOT HIGHER NUMBERS THEN ANYBODY ELSE, AND IN THE WWE HE DID THE SAME THING. ONE THING IS FOR CERTAIN IS THAT IF RIC FLAIR APPEARS MONDAY NIGHT THEN THE RATINGS WILL IMPROVE. THAT IS A GUARANTEE!!!!
BRENT PAXON: i love reading all you people's posts about dave's awesome site and the naitch himself the kiss stealin wheelin dealin limosine ridin jet flyin son of a gun that has kissed all the girls and made then cry the legendary hall of famer icon nature boy ric flair. anytime i am in a bad mood all i gotta do is go to the rfgolds message board and it lifts my spirits and brightens my day! great posts!!
LISA M: Hey all you Flair fans, i am planning on seeing the Naitch myself in a couple weeks.  he will be signing autograhs at the Norfolk Masonic Temple about 40 miles from me in Norfolk, Va., i am counting the days down and getting more nervous every day!! He is in my opinion the hottest looking man that has ever lived and to think that i might be able to actually touch him gives me goose bumps. i am going to hug him but i guess i better not ask him for a ride on SPACE MOUNTAIN which is what i would like to do so i guess i will have to settle for just a hug. Flair is Hot!!SPACE MOUNTAIN Rules!!! Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
JOHNATHAN: Ricky Morton of the Rock N Roll Express had more talent in his prime then most of the wrestlers in the wwe. the 80's is when wrestling was at it's best and one man was leading the pack and his name is Richard Morgan Flair aka Ric Flair. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
TJ: greg no offence but even a ignorant person already knows that wwe's ratings haven't been near as high as they were when Flair was still a active competitor. seriously dude tell us something we don't already know
CHRIS: RIC FLAIR MUST BE IN MORE DEMAND THEN ANY OTHER ATHLETE IN SPORTS TODAY!!  EVERYWHERE HE GOES FOR AUTOGRAPH SIGNINGS THERE IS TONS OF PEOPLE WITH LONG LINES AND EVERYBODY IS TALKING ABOUT HIM. GOOD TO SEE THE NATURE BOY PROVING THAT HE CAN BE SUCCESSFUL WITHOUT WWE. I KNEW HE COULD DO IT AND NOW HE IS PROVING IT. CONGRATS CHAMP!! WOO!
JOEY BOWERS: David I wanted to tell everyone about some VERY rare Ric Flair matches that I thought were lost forever. On Monday I ordered the Ole Anderson shoot interview a 2 DVD set from Highspots.com. It came in yesterday's mail. What a surprise! First let me caution everyone if you read this post & then want to buy the DVD beware. Ole uses a lot of vulgar language here. Anyway, check out the bonus features on disc 1. Click on Flair & Valentine vs. Ole & Gene. There are 3 matches in the set. You only see about 6 minutes of each match, plus a couple of very rare promos all from 1976. The cage match with Ric Greg Ole & Gene is my favorite here. Even though Ole Anderson is the focus of this DVD, I recommend it highly to Flair fans. It's very hard to determine how many of Ric's matches from the 1970's are still around today! Awhile back, someone posted this same cage match on Youtube & the picture quality was awful. On this DVD, it's much better. Ole Anderson shoot interview is available from Highspots.com.

FRANK: I AM GONNA GO SEE RIC FLAIR AND GET HIS AUTOGRAPH NEXT MONTH SO I HOPE HE DON'T APPEAR ON RAW TONIGHT, FLAIR DESERVES BETTER THEN WWE AND HE IS TOO GOOD TO APPEAR ON THAT SHOW!

ERIC: OH MY GOD FLAIR FANS LOOK AT WHAT OLE VINNY MAC (VINCE MCMAHON) IS DOING, WHEN HIS RATINGS ARE GOING DOWN THE DRAIN HE GOES AND BEGS THE NATURE BOY TO COME IN AND SAVE THE DAMN DAY AS USUAL. I AM SO TIRED OF THIS!!! DIDN'T YOU THINK THIS WOULD HAPPEN? IF I WAS RIC FLAIR I WOULD TELL HIM TO GO STICK IT AND SAY "SCREW YOU VINCE MCMAHON" I AM MAKING MORE MONEY SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS THEN I CAN IN YOUR COMPANY!!! WHO AGREES WITH ME??

BRUCE: we all fully understand why vince mcmahon wanted ric to come back for tonights raw broadcast, one word and one word only = RATINGS!!!

DALE: IF I WAS RIC FLAIR I WOULDN'T COME BACK FOR ONE NIGHT ON RAW!! TO BE TRUTHFUL WITH YOU FANATICS I WISH RIC WOULD GO TO TNA AND STYLE AND PROFILE INTO THE IMPACT ZONE!! I KNOW HE HAS A REALITY SHOW FIRST BUT AFTER THAT I WISH HE WOULD GO TO TNA. I ENDORSE ANOTHER STING FLAIR CLASSIC!!

G.T. did any of you Flair fans happen to catch tna impact this past thursday night?? it was another fantastic show. i used to never watch tna but they get better and better every single week, they ain't like wwe and stay stale all the time. wwe is stale and tna changes for the better. aj styles is my favourite wrestler in wrestling today now that Flair is retired.

TIMOTHY: WOOOOO WEBMASTER DAVE YOU HAVE DONE IT AGAIN MY FRIEND!! ANOTHER UPDATE TO YOUR FABULOUS WEBSITE!! WOOOOO  I LIKED THE ENGLAND PICS OF FLAIR PAGE, AIN'T IT SOMETHING HOW MANY FANS RIC HAS OVERSEAS? WE KNOW THE SOUTH IS FLAIR COUNTRY BUT FLAIR RULES EVERYWHERE INCLUDING UP NORTH AND THE UNITED KINGDOM. WEBMASTER DAVE YOU ARE THE MAN WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

JAMES BLEVINS: I just read on-line that Ric didn't appear on Raw tonight and i have to agree with the posts that said they don't blame him for not appearing, Vince McMahon don't deserve Ric Flair!!!

RICKY: Raw was not very good tonight but i watched it and the best thing on the entire show was when they showed the clip of Flair from 7 months ago when they had the Flair farewell address which was without question the greatest moment in the history of pro wrestling

NWA TRADITION RULES: David put me as NWA TRADITION RULES on the board. thanks buddy and here is my post for the message board

I recorded raw last night praying that somehow Vince talked Flair into coming back for one night, unfortunately it didn't happen, and by the way it was the first time I have recorded raw in months and it totally blowed(sucked)!!! and the ratings blowed too. a 3.0 rating which is HORRIBLE!! it was the 800th episode with special guests and had tons of publicity and it still drew a very low 3.0. this should be a clear sign to vince mcmahon that he needs to CHANGE things in wwe and that wrestling fans are tired of the same things every week. i support Flair turning down Vince's offer to come back but i sure would have liked to have seen him last night.


ANDREW: david i have seen on your message board  flair fans tell you that you got the best ric flair website. i want to share that same view because it is true but i will even go a step further. i have never told you this but i'm telling you now that you got the best ric flair website ever. i would go as far as saying that you not only got the best flair site i would say that you got the best wrestling site ever. not just flair site but wrestling in general. great great great great job wooooo wooooo woooooo woooooo wooooooo woooooooo wooooooooooooo
GREG (FLAIR IS THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME) WHAT IS THE GREATEST PRO WRESTLING MATCH OF ALL TIME? I THINK IT IS THE MAY 7TH 1989 MATCH IN NASHVILLE TENNESSEE WITH FLAIR VS. STEAMBOAT WHEN FLAIR WON THE WORLD TITLE. WHAT DO YA'LL THINK???
DAVEY: VINCE MCMAHON HAS GOT A LOT OF NERVE TO HAVE THE AUDACITY TO ASK RIC TO SHOW UP ON WWE TV FOR ONE APPEARANCE AFTER THE WAY HE TREATED HIM IN WWE BY NOT LETTING HIM DO SOME AUTOGRAPH SIGNINGS AND DO SOME THINGS THAT HE SHOULD HAVE LET RIC DO.. VINCE THINKS HE CAN TREAT RIC LIKE CRAP AND THEN WHEN HE NEEDS A RATINGS BOOST HE THINKS HE CAN OUT OF THE BLUE CALL ON RIC AND HAVE RIC COME IN AND SAVE THE GARBAGE THAT WE KNOW AS WWE. VINCE MCMAHON IT DON'T WORK THAT WAY AND THANK GOD RIC TURNED YOU DOWN.
ROGER (FLAIR HAS BIGGER FISH TO FRY) you guys hit the nail on the head, Vince Mcmahon's ego don't deserve the presence of Ric Flair. I wonder if Flair told Vince that he had BIGGER fish to fry?  because that is how it is, Flair is a hot commodity right now with record turnouts for autograph signings and he don't have to put up with Vince Mcmahon's ego any longer. i know you fans agree with me on this!!!
CURT: sammy thanks for the info on the tna ppv, that should be a great one!! the sting aj styles match should be a great bout, the greatest wrestling match of all time is the flair match you mentioned greg, the thing with flair is that he and steamboat had other matches that were probably just as good as the one people say is the greatest of all time but they were house shows and wouldn't recorded so yeah the best match ever that was on tv is definately the match from wrestle war '89.
ALISSA: Does anyone in the message board have any info on when Ric Flair's New Reality Show is going to start???  I am dying to see it. " i will not miss one episode when it starts" so if anyone knows anything about it then please let me know. Woooooooooooooo i love Ric Flair!!!!
JASON: The man with the Tennis Racket Jim Cornette has taken a severe shot at Vince McMahon,  i thought you Flair fans may like it because i read some posts from people on the message-board who don't like Vince McMahon.

Jim Cornette Disses Vince McMahon

Jim Cornette spoke with the Daily Star during the Bound for Glory PPV. Cornette, who worked for WWE for years and ran the old OVW developmental territory took a shot at Vince McMahon by saying:

"Have you seen the stock market? Vince is not a billionaire any more! He may not even be a millionaire by the time this thingís over! I will sacrifice every penny Iíve got and cut my neighbourís lawn to see Vince McMahon a broken man laying in the gutter!" 


RICK HOLLEMAN: Initial filming has started for a potential reality show with Ric and Reid Flair. The show will show the lives of two bachelors living together as Reid breaks into wrestling and Ric adjusts to life after wrestling. The show is being produced by Pink Sneakers Productions
TJ (THE FLAIR LEGACY CONTINUES) Wooooo i'm going to the Pavilion in three weeks at a wrestling show called 4 Ever Flair and not only am i going to meet the Naitch i also get to see Reid Flair wrestle his first career wrestling match. The Flair Legacy will continue on that night right in my hometown of Oak Lawn, IL. Ric's kid Reid is the REAL DEAL as most of you fans know, Reid is a very Accomplished Amateur wrestler winning several AAU National Wrestling Tournament championships with a excellent win-loss record. I say to all Flair fans as one Flair (Ric) has hung up the boots for good there is another Flair on the horizon (Reid) that in my opinion if given a fair chance could one day end up a HUGE superstar. I am thankful that the Flair name will be carried on by Ric's youngest son Reid. Woooooooooooooooo
PAUL WESTBROOK: Hello again Fanatics, and great to see you guys and gals again. Just wanted to tell you about a Ric Flair vs Ricky Steamboat house show match from 1989 I just taped from You Tube. You all should go and check it out as it's another classic matchup and went 45 minutes in length. Although Steamboat was the winner and retained the NWA championship that night I still recommend this for a view, and I know Flair fans will love it. WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

JENNIFER: I am very excited about the future of being a Flair fan, Reid is no doubt going to be a great wrestler and it don't hurt that he has the DNA of the Nature Boy does it?? Plus Reid has the good looks of his daddy and that is a good thing too  Woooooooooooooo

DAVID PELOSI: WOOOO REID FLAIR COULD RULE THE WRESTLING WORLD SOMEDAY, IF HE DID THAT WOULD BE COOL AS HELL. I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT HE IS A FANTASTIC WRESTLER WITH HIS AWESOME AMATEUR BACKGROUND BUT THE QUESTION IS IF HE WENT TO WWE WOULD VINCE MCMAHON PUSH HIM THE WAY HE DESERVED TO BE PUSHED. I'M NOT SO SURE ABOUT THAT, BUT I SURE AS HELL AM GOING TO ENJOY WATCHING THIS KID GROW IN THE WRESTLING BUSINESS AND I AM REALLY PULLING FOR HIM BECAUSE THE BOOTS HE IS TRYING TO FILL ARE THE MOST LEGENDARY BOOTS IN THE HISTORY OF PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING = THE BOOTS WORN BY THE GREATEST WRESTLER THAT HAS EVER LACED UP A PAIR OF BOOTS = NATURE BOY RIC FLAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ADAM: Hey Dave what did you and your friends think when you went to Roanoke Va. to see Ric and you seen over 2,500 people in one big long line??? I would have said Holy Sh#t if it would have been me. Woooo the Naitch is Bringing in the Bacon ain't he???

MICHAEL O: TJ that is good that you get to meet Ric and watch his son wrestle his first wrestling match all in the same night. i don't want Reid to go to wwe though, i wish he would go to TNA in about a year or two and bring his father with him and have Ric be his manager, that would be freakin awesome!! maybe wwe someday but i think he should go to TNA first.

BRYAN COMBS: Hey Flair fanatics i seen Flair on the news last night talking about a autograph signing he is doing in Raleigh this weekend, i am going to be out of town so i can't go but it was cool seeing him on my local news.. Flair is the man and he always will be. diamonds are forever and so is the greatest real world's champion. Whooo!

ERIC: "ric is got way bigger fish to fry then fooling with the bull crap of vinny mac" and "ric is making more money without him so ric made the right decision in not showing up to raw this week" -- "sounds like most of you people agree with me"
CHAD: RIC FLAIR'S NEW REALITY SHOW IS GOING TO BE OFF THE CHARTS KILLER BABY WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

NICK "THE FRICK" FRICKIE: most people thought that when ric flair retired that he would just soak in the sun and chill out and take it easy because god knows he deserves that more then anyone being that he has busted his ass for over three decades to be the greatest wrestler of all time, BUT NOT RIC FLAIR. I THINK RIC IS A FREAK OF NATURE OR MAYBE HE IS NOT HUMAN. HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A WORKAHOLIC AND THIS CRISS CROSSING AUTOGRAPH SIGNING TOUR THAT HE HAS BEEN ON FOR OVER THREE MONTHS NOW SIMPLY MAKES ME DROP MY JAW IN AMAZEMENT. I SWEAR THE MAN IS UNBELIEVABLE. I SHOULD HAVE NEVER DOUBTED HIM. HE IS GOING THROUGH THE AUTOGRAPH SIGNINGS JUST LIKE HE DID HIS WRESTLING CAREER = WITH A PASSIONATE WORK ETHIC THAT IS SECOND TO NONE.

EVERYWHERE RIC GOES THERE IS TONS OF PEOPLE WANTING TO GET A GLIMPSE OF HIM JUST LIKE IT WAS WHEN HE WAS WRESTLING. IN A WEIRD WAY EVEN THOUGH RIC FLAIR IS RETIRED FROM WRESTLING AND IS NOT ON WWE PROGRAMMING ANYMORE HE IS STILL THE MAN AND EVERYONE KNOWS IT!  I BET IF RIC CAME BACK TO WWE RIGHT NOW THE RATINGS WOULD INCREASE, THAT IS WHY VINCE WANTED HIM TO COME BACK ON RAW LAST WEEK. I AM SO HAPPY THAT RIC FLAIR HAS FOUND A PEACE IN HIS HEART AFTER WRESTLING. PRO WRESTLING NEEDS RIC FLAIR--------RIC FLAIR DON'T NEED PRO WRESTLING---------


TIM K: MY QUESTION FOR ALL THE FLAIR FANS IS THIS  "WHAT DO YOU THINK RIC FLAIR WILL DO WHEN HE MOSTLY STOPS DOING HIS AUTOGRAPH SIGNINGS AND MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKINGS??? WILL HE GO BACK TO WWE?? WILL HE GO TO TNA?? WILL HE ONLY CONCENTRATE ON TRAINING HIS SON REID FOR HIS PRO WRESTLING CAREER?? OR WILL HIS NEW REALITY SHOW KEEP HIM FROM DOING ANY OF THESE THINGS I MENTIONED?? RIC HAS A VARIETY OF OPTIONS ON THE TABLE AND I AM INTERESTED IN KNOWING WHAT YOU FLAIR FANS THINK HE WILL OR SHOULD DO. PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS QUESTION AND WEBMASTER DAVE KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK. YOUR SITE RULES! WOOOOO
RICHARD: yes yes yes the nature boy's upcoming reality show is probably going to be very entertaining! i can't wait!!
SHARON COLBERT: Hey David I found a website that had a video of Ric Flair from that furniture store In Roanoke the day you seen him. Have you seen it before? If not then I think you should put It on your site. I hope you like It. Tell everyone on the message board that I love all their posts! please e-mail me back!
BOBBY: i am hoping that soon i will get to meet my idol ric flair, i have never wanted to meet anyone as much as i have wanted to meet him. he is the only reason i ever started watching wrestling when i was a young kid. he has been a inspirtation to me and i thank him for all the memories and i am jazzed about this new reality show that he will be involved in. i pray that he comes to my area sometime in the future. great site david
TRAVIS: Ever wonder how many lovely ladies will ride space mountain on Ric's new reality show? Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: Hello everyone......... we got a new page on our site called "Flair Roanoke Video" that you fans should check out........the video was shot the day i seen Ric at Schewels Furniture. Hey Joey Bowers between these two which one did you enjoy more........meeting Ric Flair for the first time?.........or getting to listen to the Oak Ridge Boys songs "Elvira and Bobby Sue??...... is it a hard decison????........lol...........
LARRY: Welcome back Nick The Frick" Nice to see you in the message board hadn't seen you in a while, Nick great post you wrote and dude you're right" Ric Flair don't need pro wrestling as much as pro wrestlings needs him" the ratings are proof of that" 700,000 people don't just stop watching wrestling for no reason all at the same time do they? no they don't" they stopped watching because Ric Flair was no longer a part of the show" Excellent post and great to see you again Nick The Frick.
ERIC: Awesome new page on the site David, i just watched it.." nick mentioned something about Ric Flair not being human, i think rfgolds.com is almost not human and Dave's site is a borderline freak of nature with all these updates that is on his site all the time, Dave's site rfgolds.com is the best wrestling website on the internet and that is the bottom line because Eric says so..Woooooo
DEREK: good question tim k. i think ric will continue his autograph tour if that's what you want to call it until his reality show starts and then i don't think he will do as many autograph signings because he will be so busy with his reality show, then after his reality show is over i think he will go back to wwe and be a manager and hopefully in the next two years his son Reid will go to wwe and Ric can be his manager. that would be so damn cool. good questions tim.
RYAN: does anyone in the message board think that Ric Flair made a mistake by not agreeing to come to Raw last week when Vince McMahon wanted him to? i think he should have done it? what do you fans think?
BRADLEY: THE FRICK IS BACK HUH? I REMEMBER YOU TOO NICK THE FRICK. RIC FLAIR IS NO FREAK OF NATURE HE IS JUST A GUY WHO WORKED HARDER THEN EVERYONE ELSE AND HE HAD THE BEST WORK ETHIC THEN ANYONE ELSE IN THE BIZ AND THAT IS WHY HE IS KNOWN AS THE BEST WRESTLER TO EVER LIVE. IT'S THAT SIMPLE. THE NEW GUYS WRESTLING TODAY DON'T REALLY EVEN WORK THAT HARD BECAUSE THE SCHEDULE OF A WRESTLER TODAY IS EASY COMPARED TO THE 70'S AND 80'S. THAT IS WHY I RESPECT THE GUYS OF YESTERYEAR COMPARED TO THE GUYS OF TODAY.
LUKE: hey tim that is a good question: i'll tell you this. ric flair is going to put his reality show first above everything else and who can blame him, his reality show is going to bring him a ton of money so everything else like going back to wwe or autograph signings is going to play second fiddle. his reality show will be the most important thing to him. i hope this answer helps tim.
CINDY  CO - WEBMASTER: Hello, "All you fans of this Message Board please be patient, "David has been sick the last several days and he hadn't felt like posting any messages on the Board, "As of today he is feeling better so either today or tomorrow i think he will post your messages on the Board, all you fans who has e-mailed him don't worry your posts will be posted, I wish i could help more but with College i don't have much time. Thanks!!. Cindy
KYLE: I HEARD THAT RIC FLAIR'S REALITY SHOW IS GOING BE FOCUSED AROUND THE BEGINNING OF HIS SON REID'S WRESTLING CAREER, I HOPE THAT'S TRUE BECAUSE IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT THE SHOW WILL HELP REID GET HIS NAME OUT TO EVERYONE THAT ARE ONLY CASUAL FANS AND NOT TRUE BLUE FLAIR FANS LIKE MYSELF. MOST PEOPLE THAT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT WRESTLING KNOWS THAT REID FLAIR IS A INCREDIBLE AMATEUR WRESTLER BUT I KNOW THERE ARE A LOT OF IGNORANT WRESTLING FANS OUT THERE THAT KNOW NOTHING ABOUT REID SO THAT IS WHY RIC'S NEW REALITY SHOW WILL DO NOTHING BUT HELP REID'S NAME GET ESTABLISHED AND NOTICED BEFORE HE MAKES HIS DECISION TO GO TO TNA OR WWE. 

IF YOU ARE A RIC FLAIR FAN THEN YOU HAVE TO SUPPORT HIS SON AS HE CARRIES ON THE BIGGEST NAME IN WRESTLING AND ONE OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN SPORTS.. "THE FLAIR NAME" I LOOK FOR REID TO CARRY THE NAME WELL BUT PLEASE REMEMBER FLAIR FANS AS REID STARTS HIS JOURNEY PLEASE DON'T DISRESPECT HIM BY COMPARING HIM TO HIS FATHER BY SAYING THINGS LIKE " HE AIN'T AS GOOD AS HIS FATHER" AND COMMENTS LIKE THAT. I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO TELL EVERYONE READING THIS THAT NOT ONLY WILL REID NEVER BE HIS FATHER BUT NEITHER WILL ANYBODY ELSE. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE. NOBODY WILL EVER COMPARE TO RIC FLAIR SO LETS ALL RESPECT REID FLAIR AND PULL FOR HIM AND RESPECT THE RICH HERITAGE THAT IS THE "FLAIR" NAME.


FLAIRRULES: i enjoyed the new "flair video from roanoke"   close to three thousand people is a lot of people. i am so proud of ric flair for going around the whole world seeing and meeting his fans. there is probably no other wrestler or athlete that cares about his fans more then ric flair. great site!
DONNIE WALSH: Wooooo hello Nature Boy fans, boy ain't Ric Flair a busy man these days? a new reality show on the horizon, autograph signings out the ying yang, offers to go to TNA and offers to go back to WWE and if that wouldn't enough he is also training his son Reid. if anyone can handle all of these things it would be Ric Flair. When he was wrestling he was the most celebrated touring World Champion in history, in 1985 Ric Flair wrestled a amazing 320 times out of 365 days. Nobody has ever busted their a#s in and out of the ring to represent pro wrestling like the Nature Boy Ric Flair has. diamonds are forever and so is Nature Boy Ric Flair. Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
EDDIE L: a question that was asked some time ago on the message board was if anyone had ever seen a navigation as large and impressive as Dave's is on his site. i got a answer and it is no. so much info it is insane. it would take a man weeks to look at everything on the site. keep up the AWESOME work Dave. your site is the best site i have seen.
SHANIA: I'm going to Charlotte on Dec. 6th and i'm getting the VIP to meet "The Man" and when i see him i am going to tell him that i want to Ride Space Mountain All Night Long, I hope the security don't think i am a stalker or anything because i am not. i just want to tell Ric how i feel about him to his face and the way i feel is that i want to Ride Space Mountain All Night Long. WOOOOO. WOOOOO. WOOOOOO.
JAMES: Hey David how are you doing man??? i checked out your site and it looks awesome, you and Cindy are still doing a great job, i read all the posts on the message board and i loved them. i don't visit the site often enough but you know i love it, give me a call sometime man i hadn't heard from you in a while.
RANDY (POST ABOUT REID) I know all about Mr. Reid Flair. He is one of the best amateur wrestlers that i have ever seen. If this boy gets a fair deal in wrestling then i guarantee you he will go a long way. i am very concerned about the politics that will happen when he makes his move though. a lot of guys will be jealous of him because of who he is and who his daddy is. Reid will have the potential to be a star but the one thing that can hold him back is the bull crap politics that is in pro wrestling.
AARON: I THINK THAT WHEN RIC FLAIR FINISHES TRAINING HIS SON AND AFTER REID HAS PROVEN THAT HE IS READY FOR THE BIG LEAGUES THERE IS ONLY ONE PLACE FOR REID TO GO AND THAT IS TNA WRESTLING ON SPIKE TV. THE REASON REID SHOULDN'T START HIS CAREER IN WWE AND SHOULD START HIS CAREER IN TNA IS SIMPLE. TNA HAS PROVEN THAT THEY KNOW HOW TO PUSH THE YOUNG GUYS AND GIVE THEM VALUABLE TV TIME. WWE ON THE OTHER HAND HASN'T PROVEN THAT THEY CAN DO THIS. WWE IS MOSTLY ABOUT PUSHING THE ESTABLISHED STARS AND THEY WILL SACRIFICE THE YOUNG GUYS TO DO THIS AND THAT IS SOMETHING A YOUNG GUY LIKE REID FLAIR DON'T NEED TO BE INVOLVED WITH. REID SHOULD START WITH TNA AND NOT THE WWE BUT I WOULDN'T BET ON IT ENDING UP LIKE THAT BECAUSE VINCE MCMAHON WILL PROBABLY SEE DOLLAR SIGNS IN ANOTHER FLAIR. I HOPE REID IS NOT BLINDED BY THE MONEY AND TAKES A LESSER OFFER FROM TNA. WE SHALL SEE!!
PHILLIP: you don't have to worry about me. "i am a true ric flair fan through and through and i will support his son because he is a "FLAIR" and that is the bottom line. it will piss me off if the bookers or the fans don't respect Reid enough to lay off of him about him not being as good as his father garbage. who in their right mind would compare Ric's son to him?? Kyle is a million percent right - NOBODY will ever be able to compare to Ric Flair so if i hear anyone saying that garbage i will set them straight.
CODY: Woooo great news Flair fans.. I told my supervisor at my job today that i will not be at work on December 5th because i am going to go meet the Greatest damn professional wrestler that has ever lived the Naitch himself Slick Ric Flair in Greensboro, N.C. for a big autograph signing that he will be doing. I have never met him before and i am thrilled and nervous as hell too. I have the utmost respect for the biggest icon in the sports history the Naitch. when i told my supervisor that i had to have a vacation day i said woooo to him and i strutted. i will be honored to meet the Legend next month. Wooooooooooooooooooo
ADAM FORRESTER: Yeah Kyle Ric's reality show will revolve around Reid's wrestling career but i think that there is going to be some kiss stealing and wheeling dealing on the show too. If Ric has anything to say about it you know there will be some beautiful ladies and some Champagne and Brewski's involved. lets don't forget the styling and profiling. the show should be great and i am looking forward to it.  
RONNIE (I'M BACK AND I'M LAYING THE LAW DOWN ON OLE ANDERSON) JOEY BOWERS NOBODY GIVES A DAMN ABOUT OLE ANDERSON OR A SHOOT INTERVIEW HE DONE. OLE ANDERSON IS A STUPID LYING SOB AND HE'S JEALOUS OF RIC FLAIR AND THE FACT THAT FLAIR COULD OUTWRESTLE HIM BLINDFOLDED AND WITH BOTH HANDS TIED BEHIND HIS BACK. OLE HAS SAID SOME DISRESPECTFUL THINGS ABOUT NOT ONLY FLAIR BUT MORE LEGENDS OF THE BUSINESS AND MOST OF THE ONES HE HAS TALKED TRASH ABOUT IS 10 TIMES BETTER THEN HIM IN THE RING.  HEY JOEY BOWERS QUIT WATCHING A WASHED UP JEALOUS STUPID SOB OLE ANDERSON AND INSTEAD PUT A RIC FLAIR DVD IN YOUR DVD PLAYER AND WATCH GREATNESS! OLE ANDERSON WAS A TOUGH WRESTLER IN HIS DAY BUT HIS ACTIONS SINCE HE STOPPED WRESTLING AND THE TERRIBLE LIES HE HAS TOLD IN THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS HAS MADE ME LOSE EVERY OUNCE OF RESPECT I EVER HAD FOR HIM. I USED TO RESPECT OLE ANDERSON BUT NOW HE IS A LYING NO GOOD JEALOUS OLD MAN THAT SUCKS AND THERE AIN'T MANY PEOPLE THAT WANT TO HEAR HIM SPOUT HIS LIES SO SCREW OLE ANDERSON. JOEY BOWERS YOU NEED TO GO SEE A DOCTOR TO GET YOURSELF CHECKED OUT TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE OK BECAUSE OLE ANDERSON IS A "FN" LIAR AND HE SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DOUG GENTRY: I talked to my sister today and she said that she and her husband was at a Nightclub here in Norfolk, VA this past weekend and guess who walks in the bar? The "Nature Boy" Ric Flair walked in and she said he was dancing and he sat down and had a few beers and he had some blond woman with him, not sure if it was his agent or not but she said he was having a good time. she said when Ric walked in everyone went Woooooo and the place came alive. My sister is not a big wrestling fan but she said she spoke with Ric and he was very nice. i hope you Flair fans enjoy this story.
BRADLEY: HEY WEBMASTER DAVE I GOT A QUESTION FOR YOU.. <  I HAVE BEEN COMING TO THE MESSAGE BOARD FOR A LONG TIME AND I HAVE SPOKE WITH YOU ON A COUPLE OF OCCASIONS AND I KNOW HOW INTELLIGENT YOU ARE ABOUT PRO WRESTLING AND ESPECIALLY RIC FLAIR. I GOT A IDEA FOR YOUR WEBSITE THAT YOU MIGHT LIKE, HOW WOULD YOU FEEL ABOUT CREATING ANOTHER PAGE ON THE SITE THAT WOULD BE USED AS A SECTION TO ANSWER ALL THE RIC FLAIR FANS QUESTIONS THAT WE HAVE FOR YOU?

FOR EXAMPLE WE COULD ASK YOU FOR YOUR OPINIONS ON CERTAIN SUBJECTS AND MAYBE YOU COULD ANSWER SOME THAT DON'T EVEN INVOLVE RIC FLAIR IF THAT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE. I STRONGLY FEEL LIKE THIS WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE BESIDES MYSELF WOULD WANT TO SEE. I KNOW YOU ARE A RIC FLAIR EXPERT SO HOW ABOUT WE PUT YOU TO THE TEST. ANOTHER REASON I THINK THIS WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA IS BECAUSE I CAN'T COUNT HOW MANY TIMES I READ ON THE MESSAGE BOARD A PERSON ASKING YOU A QUESTION DAVE SO WOULDN'T IT BE NICE TO JUST MAKE A SEPERATE PAGE WITH JUST OUR QUESTIONS AND YOUR ANSWERS. I KNOW YOU ARE BUSY BUT THIS IS JUST A THOUGHT.

I GOT SEVERAL QUESTIONS FOR YOU I COULD ASK. IF YOU THINK THIS IS A BAD IDEA THEN THAT IS FINE BUT I THINK THIS WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW YOUR OPINIONS ON SOME OF THESE SUBJECTS IN WRESTLING. MY FIRST QUESTION WOULD BE DAVE IF YOU THINK THAT TNA WRESTLING IS BETTER THEN WWE? AND I GOT MORE BESIDES THAT. PUT THIS E-MAIL POST ON YOUR MESSAGE BOARD AND MAYBE I WILL GET A RESPONCE FROM OTHER PEOPLE AND SEE IF THEY THINK THIS IS A GOOD IDEA. DAVE E-MAIL ME BACK MY FRIEND AND KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK ON YOUR AWESOME SITE.    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO PLEASE CONSIDER THIS.


MIKE: the ric flair message board freakin rocks and so does ric flair. woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
NWATRADITIONRULES: Ronnie i agree with you man, ole anderson is a jealous old bastard and he wishes he was ric flair were he could have all the beautiful women in the world WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
JOEY BOWERS: Hey Ronnie long time no see. Don't worry I'm not trying to get fan support for Ole Anderson. I was thinking of his wrestling days in the 70's when I bought the DVD. You're correct Ole is very disrespectful to a lot of wrestlers now. When I wrote my post about the bonus matches I was doing it for Ric's fans. As I said before, the footage dates back to 1977 and is rarely seen today. So I thought I'd tell everyone here & let them decide for themselves. Ole was a favorite of mine but no more. Long live Nature Boy! WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!          By the way Ronnie, if you want a good example of how Ole conducted himself on the interview go to Highspots.Com.I wrote a review on it. It's listed by Wayne from Jonesville North Carolina. After you read it I think you'll at least have a good laugh anyway! Have a good one!

GREG: Ronnie even though i agee with you dude i feel as though you were a little harsh to Joey Bowers. I am aware of the disrespectful comments that Ole Anderson has made about Ric Flair and i agree with Ronnie that Ole's comments is out of jealousy and that Ole is lying on some issues and we all know Flair is not overrated. but Joey did mention some things about Flair in his post. It ain't like he e-mailied Dave his entire post and failed to mention Flair. He did mention about Ole and Gene wrestling Flair and Greg Valentine from the late 70's which i think is interesting because i have never seen them matches before. There is more to Ric Flair then the 80's as World Champion, Ric Flair was a great Tag Team wrestler in the late 70's with several partners including Valentine, Blackjack Mulligan and Rip Hawk. Ronnie i agree with you but i think you were a little harsh to Joey. Great site Dave!!

TJ: LOFL RONNIE!!!!!   MAN I LOVE IT WHEN YOU POST ON THE BOARD. LOFL!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

SHELDON: This is what i like about the message board. A Heated Discussion and tensions running high, I liked Ole with the Four Horsemen but the Bull Sh#t he said about Flair turned me against him. I have never heard anyone say things about Flair like Ole has. it confuses me. If it wouldn't for that i would like him.

SHANE "O" MAC: Has any of you people ever thought that maybe Ole Anderson is saying that crap about Flair because it gets him publicity and nothing more?? I am suspicious that Ole even believes the crap he is saying. take for example Flair's farewell night on Raw earlier this year when the whole wwe roster came to the ring and saluted him and Flair was crying in one of the most emotional moments in wrestling history. What about all them guys who came to the ring to pay respect? most of them has said many times that Flair was their idol growing up and that Flair is responsible for them getting into the wrestling Biz. All them guys have respect for Flair and have nothing but great things to say about him, and how about all the fans who has met Flair that has said he was a class act and a all around nice guy? is all these people lying and Ole Anderson telling the truth?? or is all the fans and wrestlers telling the truth and Ole lying?  you know the answer to this. Ole is the one lying or he is doing it for publicity. one way or the other it is wrong because us the fans and the wrestlers know better. that is the facts and i am Shane "O" Mac and i'm outta here!!!

MICK: I feel the Love in this Room. lol

RICHARD: Ronnie is back ain't he?? Hey Ronnie why not lay the law down on Hoax Slogan like you usually do? i am no big fan of Ole Anderson but he is sure tougher then Hoax Slogan will ever be. Ole may suck but in a real fight he would kick Hoax Slogan's ass. Welcome back Ronnie

JOSH: Hey Webmaster Dave put this message on your messageboard. "Hey Bradley great idea" and Dave if you decide to do what Bradley talked about in his post then i got some questions for you too. Great idea again Bradley

ASHLEY CRANFORD: Woooooo Ric Flair is the Hottest Stud ever in wrestling. That man has turned me on for years and i have told everyone before but it is still true today that i would like to ride space mountain as much as possible. Whooo Whoooo Whooooo Whoooo

PAUL K: There is no doubt that Ole Anderson was a tough wrestler and a original member of the Four Horsemen but i have to say that his comments about Ric Flair is a disgrace and Ole should apologize because every wrestling fan in this world knows that he is totally lost his mind and he is wrong. I never liked Ole as good as i did Arn anyway but the truth of the matter is that Ole is old and is stuck in the past way to damn much. He thinks that no good wrestlers that started their career in the 70's are any good, he thinks that only the ones that started their careers in the 50's and 60's are any good. that is insane, i heard him say something about Shawn Michaels one time too saying he wouldn't a good wrestler, that is a freakin joke, Shawn Michaels is one of the all time greats not as good as Flair but he is a great wrestler and Ole Anderson may have Alzheimer's Disease or something, really i don't give two cents into anything Ole Anderson says so why don't you guys give it a rest.

JOEY BOWERS: Hey Greg thanks for supporting my views! I knew Ole was an asshole & smart mouthed but I never realized how much until I watched his DVD. In fact since I saw it a second time,I have a different opinion of it. I'm about to go to Highspots.Com & write a revised review. I hope you Greg & all of Ric's fans check it out. Yes, I know it sucks buying an Ole Anderson DVD so you can watch a rare clip of Ric. But we're being given a chance that we may never have again. Have a good one, Greg.WOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BARRY: bradley does have a good idea and webmaster dave you should consider it, i think it would be a great addition to the site, at least think about it.

JC: GREG YOU ARE THE ONE WHO IS WRONG (NOT RONNIE). I READ ALL OF RONNIE'S POST AND I DIDN'T SEE ONE THING IN HIS POST THAT WAS HARSH..I THINK RONNE'S POST WAS RIGHT ON TARGET. OLE ANDERSON IS A OLD REDNECK WHO CAN'T ACCEPT THAT THE NAITCHA BOY RIC FLAIR DOMINATED THE LATE 70'S AND THE ENTIRE 80'S AND THE 90'S AND IS REMEMBERED AS THE BIGGEST ICON IN PRO WRESTLING HISTORY, YES OLE IS JEALOUS, JEALOUS, JEALOUS, AND HOW MANY TIMES DID OLE ANDERSON BECOME WORLD CHAMPION? LOL I THINK I MADE MY POINT. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO RIC FLAIR IS THE ALL TIME KING OF PRO WRESTLING WOOOOOOOOOO

TYLER: Hey David i enjoyed the new updates on the website, this is the first time i had a chance to check the site out in a couple weeks since i last e-mailed you and it looks great as usual. WOW was a surprised when i went to the message board. i was far behind on reading all the posts and when i started reading i didn't know i was going to see such passionate discussions. I knew Ole made them ignorant comments and my opinion is " i don't think there is a large group of people who care what Ole thinks about Ric Flair"    " i really don't"  the fans who have watched Ric Flair for over 30 years on our television and who love and respect him know what he means to us so why in the hell should we care how Ole Anderson feels? let's move on to more productive subjects shall we?????

ANONYMOUS: Wooooo i love the message-board. the posts are awesome and very informative, i enjoy reading posts from true ric flair fans. i read every post and i never miss one. all of them are so good you can't skip any.

KEVIN LINDSEY: How about Ronnie vs. Joey Bowers at Starrcade '08. lol.  i don't have much of a opinion on the subject but if Ole made them remarks about Ric then he is DEAD wrong.

JEREMY: Dave i think Bradley is right and you should do it. i think if you created the new page you would get a lot of e-mails from people asking you questions. Hey i even came up with a name you could call the page. how does Webmaster Q and A sound? do you like it? put this e-mail on the board were i can see what everyone else thinks about this. thanks

JOE B: Timothy i will be watching tna tonight and thank you man for posting the preview for tonights impact show. i bet it will be good. if Ric Flair would go there (tna) it would be complete. thay are already better then wwe but if the natich went then it would be icing on the cake

FRANK: Diamonds are Forever and so is rfgolds.com's Message Board. Woooooooooo

JOEY BOWERS: Hey Sheldon Richard & Paul K. Who says the Ole discussion is heated? I'm glad you guys noted that at least Ole could slaughter ""Hoax Slogan"" any time! My purpose was to tell fans about these matches of Ric's because they are rare & seldom seen today. If Ronnie had read my original post more carefully,he would understand. Since I watched Ole's DVD a second time I have now come to despise him. I wrote a revised review on Highspots.Com that proves this.Bottom line-when you read someone else's messages here look at ALL of it before you judge them.

BRIAN: Joey i went to the highspots site and read your review on the Ole Anderson shoot interview dvd and i must say that i am glad you did that because everything you said was right. sometimes you have to watch something twice to really be able to judge something. i respect Ole Anderson as a wrestler but not as a human being and that is sad because it is his own fault because of his disrespectful comments.

RICKY G: I GOT ONE WORD TO SAY = WOOOOOOOOO I GOT HOME FROM WORK YESTERDAY AND I HAD MY RIC FLAIR SHOOT INTERVIEW FOUR DISC COLLECTION WAITING ON ME. WOOOOOOO I COULDN'T WAIT TO START WATCHING IT SO I WATCHED THE FIRST TWO DVD'S LAST NIGHT AND IT IS SOME OF THE MOST REVEALING COMPELLING MOMENTS EVER SEEN ON A DVD. RIC FLAIR IS RELAXED, CANDID, FUNNY AND JUST A DOWNRIGHT JOY TO WATCH IN FRONT OF A CAMERA. I WATCHED OVER 6 HOURS AT ONE TIME AND I WANTED TO WATCH IT ALL BUT UNFORTUNATLEY I HAD TO GO TO BED. I WILL FINISH THE DVD'S TONIGHT AND I WILL POST A REVIEW FOR YOU DAVID TO POST ON THE MESSAGE BOARD. FLAIR IS THE MAN AND HE IS SO INTERESTING TO WATCH I COULD WATCH HIM 24 HOURS STRAIGHT INSTEAD OF 13 LIKE ON THE SHOOT VIDEO. FLAIR IS ENTERTAINING AND THE TRUE DEFINITION OF ICON!! WOOOOOO

BOBBY: i should be getting the flair shoot video any day now and from what i hear it is a true gem.. wooooooo i can't wait woooooooo

RONNIE (CONTINUING TO LAY THE LAW DOWN) I never knew i would get that many responces to my post. Seems like everyime i e-mail the Webmaster Dave a post for the Message Board it lights up with responces and opinions and controversy. I don't try to create all of that i just like to "tell it like it is" and Lay my own Brand Of Law Down on people with a different outlook on many hot topics in the world of pro wrestling and i will continue to do that in this post.

Joey Bowers i read your Ole Anderson shoot interview review on highspots and i think your second review was closer to the actual truth and i commend you for that. Joey when i read your first post on the board about the Ole shoot dvd i did see the part were you talked about the Flair/Greg Valentine vs. Andersons matches that was on the dvd and maybe i should have pointed out in my post that them are some rare matches that should be seen by all Flair fans but just like someone else stated and i agree with them that i don't think there will be enough Flair fans that is going to go to highspots and spend $20.00 or more on a couple of Flair matches when the whole dvd is not based totally around Ric Flair.

I understand why Ole fans would want it but rfgolds.com is not a Ole Anderson website it is a Ric Flair website, plus Joey i know that Ebay used to have some rare late 70's NWA Mid Atlantic matches involving a young Nature Boy for sale and on the ones on Ebay you can buy a two hour dvd with nothing but just matches that involve Ric Flair, obviously on the Ole dvd there was more matches that didn't involve Flair so wouldn't you think that most people that come to rfgolds.com's Ric Flair website would rather spend their hard earned money on a dvd that only featured matches that involved Ric Flair?? ok that is what i thought.

Thank You TJ, Richard and JC for your nice comments to me, I am glad you enjoy me being back and Laying The Law Down, now let's move on to some news about the biggest conceited egotistical SOB ever in wrestling the man that sucks a#s Hoax Slogan. i heard that Vince McMahon turned down a recent request from Hoax to return to the wwe. Thank God Vinny Mac done this because the Ratings as we know suck bad enough so the return of Hoax Slogan would probably send wwe out to pasture for good. Nobody cares about the SOB Hoax Slogan anymore because he sucks.

Looks like Hoax is even in more trouble in real life because it has been proven that he recently sold his trademarks ó including his name ó to his Gay Wad Partner Eric Bischoff to prevent his estranged wife Linda from benefiting from the profits in their ongoing divorce. Apparently Hoax Slogan was trying to hide his assets by passing them on to Bischoff at a discount price. Linda filed for divorce from Slogan last year after he had an affair with their daughterís former best friend. Speaking of Slogan ain't he had a bad year?? his wife divorcing him, his son going to the slammer for almost killing a man and leaving him with permanent brain damage, his daughter so mad at him for having a affair with her freind that she didn't speak to him for months, and recorded phone messages of him making fun of a person laying in a hospital braindead.

The bible says you reap what you sow, and apparently from Hoax Slogan's life in the past year the SOB is doing a lot of reaping ain't he??  My name is Ronnie and it has been my honor and privilege to Lay The Law Down once again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


RICKY G: WOOOO I FINISHED WATCHING THE RIC FLAIR SHOOT INTERVIEW TODAY AND OH MY GOD. OH MY GOD. OH MY GOD. WOW. WOW. WOW. WOW. THERE IS NO WORDS THAT EVEN POSSIBLY DESCRIBE HOW GREAT IT IS. IT IS THE BEST SHOOT INTERVIEW EVER. WOOOOOO. IF YOU ARE EVEN A CASUAL SMALL FAN OF THE NAITCH AND YOU DON'T BUY OR BORROW A COPY OF THIS DVD FROM A FRIEND AND WATCH THIS DVD THEN YOU ARE THE BIGGEST IDIOT IN THE WORLD. THIS IS THE BEST RIC FLAIR DVD EVER. THE BEST DVD EVER. THE BEST DVD EVER. THE BEST DVD EVER. THE BEST DVD EVER. GO GET THIS DVD. GO GET THIS DVD. GO GET THIS DVD. GO GET THIS DVD. GO GET THIS DVD.
SCOTT R: i received my flair shoot video friday and so far i have watched two hours and it is flair at his best. he is honest and sincere and holds nothing back on the business.  " i heard that this dvd set is selling at a rapid pace so i predict it will easily be the number #1 selling shoot interview of all time" you better get your copy today.  Flair is still the man wooooooooooooo
ERNIE: i watched all 13 hours of the Flair shoot dvd's this weekend and out of all the dvd's that wwe has came out with this one from highspots blows them away. thank you highspots for blowing wwe out of the water. highspots rules.
DANNY: Congrats to HighSpots for conducting the Shoot interview with the Nature Boy. i have watched about half of it and it is Killer so far!! Wooooooooo
SCOTT JENSEN:Come on is there any Norfolk people who have met Ric Flair at the Norfolk meet and greet ? Don ' t let Roanoke VA have the last say or is there any video of Ric Flair in Norfolk this past Saturday November 15 , 2008 ? And David i will remind you about what happened tomorrow in Ric Flair History . Take care your friend Scott . Great work on your web site . I enjoy reading every ones post  and that would be a great thing if you had a Q . A . on your web site that we could e-mail our questions about Ric Flair or wrestling in general .
MITCH: I am a little short on cash this week but this friday when i get paid i am ordering the ric flair shoot interview videos i am excited like never before about seeing the legend talk about the biz he dominated in for over thirty years. i will give everyone my review after i receive it. wooooooooo
JENNIFER: I got a great story for all you Flair fanatics like me. last tuesday was my 32nd birthday and my husband usually has my present for me that day but this time he didn't and i couldn't figure out why he didn't have me anything but a card but he said he had ordered a piece of furniture that i have wanted for a long time and that i was going to have to wait for it to arrive.  Then Friday when i got home from work he said that he didn't want us to go out and eat like we usually do because he wanted to stay home and watch a new dvd he had bought me for my birthday. I said "are you crazy"? we can watch the dvd when we get back home i want to go out and eat" then he said "Honey sit down" so i did. then he told me to close my eyes and then open them and when i did i screamed to the top of my lungs because he had bought me the Ric Flair Shoot Interview dvd that was just released. I hugged him and we ordered pizza and stayed home and watched about 4 hours of "The Naitch". The dvd is really good and Ric is a sexy hunk even though he had a shiner from a apparent altercation. Ric looks good no matter what and lets just say that my husband got lucky that night if you know what i mean even though in my mind i wouldn't thinking about my husband i was thinking about Ric Flair and Space Mountain.. if you know what i mean   WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO 
MIKE: dude... your website is awesome! I'm a 40yr guy that used to watch some wrestlin' in my early days. Any how, I happen to go to a Boston Bruins hockey game last Friday night, and whenever the Bruins scored a goal (4 that night)... after they announced who scored + made the assist, the announcer would give a sweet "Wooooo" which i looked at the guy i went with and we both said "that's in honor of Ric Flair"........... He lives up here too! 
KYLE: HEY RONNIE I LOVE YOUR BRAND OF LAYING THE LAW DOWN, YOUR POST WAS LONG BUT I AM GLAD IT WAS BECAUSE IT WAS AWESOME!! EVERY WORD IN YOUR POST WAS THE GOSPEL TRUTH AND YOU AIN'T THE ONLY ONE WHO HATES HULK HOGAN (HOAX SLOGAN) WITH A PASSION. I HAVE HATED THE PIECE OF TRASH FOR YEARS. ACTUALLY WHEN I WAS A LITTLE KID I LIKED SLOGAN BUT AFTTER I FOUND OUT WHAT KIND OF LEGIT ASS HOLE HE WAS I HAVE HATED HIM EVER SINCE. RONNIE GREAT POST AND DAVE THE MESSAGE BOARD RULES.
JERRY: Woooo David the new article about Reid is great, i wish the son of the greatest wrestler who ever lived nothing but success. and 25 years ago today was the event that started pay-per-view. without Starrcade there would have been no WrestleMania, Ric Flair is responsible for the beginning of ppv. Starrcade is better then Wrestlemania ever was or is. Wooooo Starrcade 83 started it all and Vince McMahon can put that in his pipe and smoke it. Diamonds are Forever and so is Starrcade and the Nature Boy Ric Flair Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ERIC JOHNSON: "I ENJOYED THE TWO NEW PAGES WEBMASTER DAVE".  IT DON'T SEEM LIKE IT HAS BEEN 25 YEARS TOP THE DAY WHEN RIC FLAIR WRESTLED HARLEY RACE AT STARRCADE '83. DAMN HOW TIME FLIES, I REMEMBER GETTING UP ON THE SATURDAY MORNING AFTER THAT STARRCADE TO SEE IF RIC HAD WON THE TITLE. I WAS 8 YEARS OLD AND I LOVED RIC FLAIR AND I STILL LOVE HIM TODAY. HOW MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE REMEMBER WATCHING NWA PRO WRESTLING WITH BOB CAUDLE AND JOHHNY WEAVER ON SAT. MORNINGS OR NWA WORDWIDE WRESLING WITH DAVID CROCKETT AND TONY SCHIAVONE ON SAT. EVENINGS. THEM WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS THAT WE WILL NEVER SEE THE LIKES OF AGAIN. THANK YOU RIC FLAIR AND THANK YOU NWA AND THANK YOU STARRCADE FOR HAVING CHILDHOOD MEMORIES THAT I WILL NEVER FORGET.
CHRIS: i read the new stuff on the site and it's all good. nice article on Reid and the today in Flair history page is good too. Harley Race was one of the toughest wrestlers of all time and his bouts against the Naitch were classics. good job!!
BOBBY: WWE has sucked recently but at least they now got the belt on a man who deserves it. John Cena is the new World Champion. I still like TNA better then WWE but it's good that they got the belt on the rightful champion. THE CHAMP IS HERE!! YOU CAN'T SEE ME! WOOOOO
FLAIRRULES: got my copy of the flair shoot interview dvds today. i am getting ready to start watching it. wooooooooooooooooooo
ZANE: If Rfgolds.Com Rules the Internet then Ronnie Rules the Message Board. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
JAMIE: great posts guys this message board is my favorite message board that i've ever read. great great posts.
RICHARD: BOBBY I DON'T CARE IF CENA IS THE CHAMPION OR NOT. WWE "FN" SUCKS!!!  TNA "FN" RULES!!! KURT ANGLE COULD BE BLINDFOLDED AND BEAT THE SH#T OUT OF EVERY GUY IN THE SUCKY WWE. TNA RULES SO EVERYONE WATCH IT THIS THURSDAY NIGHT ON SPIKE TV
DOUG BRYSON: "Webmaster Dave i really enjoyed the new pages on your site".   The first Starrcade was a year and a half before the first Wrestlemania and the post on the Message Board that said that without Starrcade there wouldn't have been a Wrestlemania is right. I remember the Dog Collar match at the first Starrcade between Rowdy Roddy Piper vs. Greg "The Hammer" Valentine. The match was brutal., and we know Flair vs. Harley Race was a classic. Nothing will ever compare to the first Starrcade. I stand with the old NWA and Tradition and Old School real wrestling and this new WWE garbage can go to Hell.
DEREK: I WISH RIC FLAIR AND HIS FAMILY A HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
ROGER: Happy ThanksGiving Flair Fanatics and a more important Happy ThanksGiving goes out to Ric Flair.
TRISHA: A very special Happy Thanksgiving to my Sexy Hunk of a Man "Nature Boy" "Slick" Ric Flair. I wish i could be spending Thanksgiving with the Naitch. I LOVE him!! Woooo Wooooo Wooooo Wooooo Wooooo Wooooo!!
REBECCA: Webmaster David Happy Thanksgiving to you and Thank You for everything you do to make your Website the best Website in the world. Happy Thanksgiving!! Whooooooooooooo!
TYLER: Happy Thanksgiving to all the Ric Flair fans on the Message Board.
JAMES: (HAPPY WOOOGIVING) WOOOOOO IT AIN'T HAPPY THANKSGIVING IT IS HAPPY WOOOGIVING! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
SCOTT JENSEN: Hello everybody on the message board Happy Thanksgiving today.
PAUL WESTBROOK: Hello Fanatics. And boy it's been a while since I've been here. So what is new? I agree 100 percent with you all that the state of wrestling (yeah if you can call it that) today is a crapfest. I too am hoping to get a copy of the Ric Flair Shoot Interview DVD set as having a document of Ric's telling about the backstage goings on and his years of expereinces in the wrestling business alone make it a collectors item. I know there are many of you that might not like John Cena, however in one of the deleted scenes on the shoot interview that I happened to catch on you tube, Ric actually puts Cena over and says he is a dedicated performer and worker, so Cena cant be all that bad. The wrestling industry without Ric I have to admit has not been nearly as great as it was when he was still active. Anyhow great to see all of you and please let me know of some of your opinions, or even say hello. Dont want to think Im being ignored or something like that. Would love to chat more with you guys. And kep on WOOOO"N.

JOSEPH SIMMS: Only in your dreams Trisha. "lol" ..  Happy Thanksgiving Naitch and i hope to see you at a autograph signing real soon. I watched your Shoot interview and it was freaking killer! Woooooooooo

DAVIS: TNA WAS ALREADY GREAT AND NOW WITH THE ADDITION OF "THE MAIN EVENT MAFIA" THEY ARE AWESOME. THAT IS A GREAT STORYLINE WITH THAT GROUP.  THE THING I LIKE ABOUT THEM IS HOW WELL DRESSED THEY ARE. I CALL IT "STYLING AND PROFILING"  THE MAIN EVENT MAFIA KICKS ASS IN TNA. YES GUYS WWE DOES SUCK AND TNA DOES RULE. THE ONLY THING THAT WILL MAKE WWE BETTER THEN TNA IS IF RIC FLAIR COMES BACK.

BRUCE: Happy Thanksgiving Champ!! Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

DALE H: The Ric Flair Shoot Interview was Spectacular!!!! If anybody out there has not seen this Shoot interview then you should be ashamed of yourselves. If you have any respect for Ric Flair then you will watch this Shoot interview. It is Spectacular. You don't even have to be a Flair fan to enjoy this Shoot interview.

CARSON (WISHING REID THE VERY BEST) WEBMASTER DAVE PLEASE PUT "WISHING REID THE VERY BEST" IN THE SUBJECT LINE WITH MY NAME" THANK YOU BUD AND HERE IS MY POST FOR THE BOARD"   "I WISH RIC FLAIR'S SON REID THE VERY BEST IN HIS FUTURE AS A PRO WRESTLER. I KNOW HE WILL NEVER REPLACE HIS DADDY BUT THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT REID HAS "FLAIR" IN HIS DNA SO WITH THAT KIND OF DNA HE WILL GO A LONG LONG WAY. REID I WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK!!!

ERNIE: Ronnie LOFL I love your posts dude. You are right about Slogan and i agree with you. LOFL!!!

JC: I also want to wish Reid Flair good luck in his wrestling Debut in Charlotte. I can't imagine how nervous he will be when he steps into the ring for his 1st career match, and with his father "the Nature Boy" Ric Flair in his corner. I wish i could be in Charlotte to see it. Good Luck Reid!!

BRIAN (THIS IS A LONG POST BUT PLEASE READ IT ALL BECAUSE IT'S IMPORTANT) DAVID THIS POST IS GOING TO BE LONG BUT WHEN YOU POST MY NAME ON THE BOARD PLEASE STRESS TO EVERYONE HOW IMPORTANT THIS POST IS AND THAT I WANT EVERYONE TO READ IT.   LADIES AND GENTLEMEN I'VE GOT SOME BIG NEWS. THIS NEWS IS NOT ABOUT RIC FLAIR BUT I THINK THAT IT'S IMPORTANT FOR WRESTLING FANS TO KNOW.. I KNOW YOU GUYS AND GALS ON THE MESSAGE-BOARD DON'T LIKE IT WHEN ANYBODY POSTS ANY MESSAGES ABOUT HULK HOGAN BECAUSE NOBODY CARES ABOUT HIM BUT THE LATEST THING HE HAS DONE IS SO WRONG IT HAS TO BE POSTED TO BE BELIEVED. I WAS RIDING DOWN THE ROAD IN MY CAR A COUPLE WEEKS AGO AND HOGAN WAS ON SOME RADIO STATION TALKING ABOUT HIS PAST CAREER AND HOW HE AND ERIC BISCHOFF SUPPOSEDLY DOMINATED WRESTLING IN WCW.

UNLIKE SOME PEOPLE I DON'T HATE HOGAN BUT I'M NOT A BIG FAN OF HIM EITHER SO I WAS GOING TO TURN THE STATION BUT SOMETHING TOLD ME TO KEEP LISTENING TO HIM AND I'M GLAD I DID. HE WAS ASKED A QUESTION ABOUT WCW GOING BANKRUPT AND STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN'S POPULARITY IN THE WWF AND IF AUSTIN'S AND THE ROCK'S POPULARITY HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH WWF BEATING WCW IN THE RATINGS. HOGAN SEEMED LEGITIMATELY PISSED AT THE QUESTION SO HE STARTED SAYING VERY RUDE COMMENTS ABOUT AUSTIN.

HOGAN SAID THAT THE REASON WCW LOST THE RATINGS BATTLE TO THE WWF WAS BECAUSE HE DIDN'T GET TO HOLD THE WORLD TITLE LONG ENOUGH..HA..HA..HA..(I SAY A BIG LOFL ON THAT ONE) AND IF HE (HOGAN)WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HOLD THE TITLE LONGER THEN WCW WOULD HAVE KICKED WWF'S ASS FOR LONGER THEN THEY DID IN THE RATINGS AND THEY WOULDN'T HAVE HAD TO SELL THE COMPANY AND HE AND BISCHOFF WOULD HAVE MADE MCMAHON GO BANKRUPT INSTEAD OF WCW."WHEN I HEARD THIS I CRACKED UP LAUGHING SO HARD I ALMOST HAD TO STOP THE CAR TO FINISH MY LAUGHTER" 

PEOPLE WHO KNOW THE HISTORY OF THE WWF VS. WCW RATINGS WAR KNOWS THAT HOGAN HELD THE TITLE TOO LONG AND IN THE PROCESS HE AND BISCHOFF HELD DOWN SUPERSTARS THAT HAD LOTS MORE TALENT THEN HOGAN EVER DID. REMEMBER EDDIE GUERRERO AND CHRIS BENOIT AND CHRIS JERICHO?? THAT'S JUST THREE GUYS THAT SHOULD HAVE HAD A CHANCE AT WORLD TITLE RUNS INSTEAD OF HOGAN, AND THERE WERE OTHER GUYS TOO. THE DISC JOCKEY ASKED HOGAN ABOUT THE RUMOR THAT HE AND STEVE AUSTIN WERE SUPPOSED TO WRESTLE AT A WRESTLEMANIA A FEW YEARS AGO AND WHY IT NEVER HAPPENED.

I WAS SHOCKED THAT HOGAN ACTUALLY ADMITTED THAT HE TOLD VINCE MCMAHON AFTER VINCE WANTED TO SIGN THE MATCH THAT HE WOULD NEVER DO A JOB (LOSE) TO A OVERRATED DRUNK LIKE STEVE AUSTIN. HE SAID THE ONLY WAY THE MATCH WOULD BE BELIEVABLE TO THE FANS WOULD BE FOR HIM TO WIN CONVINCINGLY WITH HIS LEG DROP AND AUSTIN REFUSED TO DO THAT FINISH SO THAT'S WHY IT NEVER HAPPENED. HOGAN WENT ON AND ON ABOUT AUSTIN SAYING THAT AUSTIN DON'T DESERVE TO BE IN THE SAME RING AS HIM AND THAT IF VINCE DIDN'T CREATE A SCRIPT FOR THE MATCH THEN HE WOULD HAVE BEAT AUSTIN IN LESS THEN 5 MINUTES. "AT THIS POINT IN TIME I AM ABOUT TO LOSE IT WITH MY LAUGHTER BUT WHAT IS SAD ABOUT THIS IS THAT FROM THE SOUND OF HOGAN'S VOICE HE WAS DEAD SERIOUS. AIN'T THAT SCARY??

I ARRIVED AT MY DESTINATION BUT I STAYED IN MY CAR TO LISTEN TO MORE OF THE INTERVIEW. THE DISC JOCKEY ASKED HOGAN WHY ALL THE ANGER TOWARDS STEVE AUSTIN AND HOGAN SAID "IT'S BECAUSE I HAVE NO RESPECT FOR A WANNABE WRESTLER AND A REAL LIFE DRUNK AND THAT HE IS ONE OF THE MOST OVERRATED WRESTLERS EVER. HE SAID HE WANTS AUSTIN IN A (MMA)MIXED MARTIAL ARTS MATCH AND THAT HE WOULD WIPE THE FLOOR WITH HIM. THEN HOGAN SAID THAT IF HE TOOK 6 MONTHS TO TRAIN THAT HE COULD FIGHT IN MMA(MIXED MARTIAL ARTS) AND WIN THE UFC WORLD TITLE FROM BROCK LESNAR BY SHOWING HIM WHO HAS THE LARGEST PYTHONS IN THE WORLD.. OMFG..OMFG.. I AM NOT LYING FOLKS I AM SERIOUS AS A HEART ATTACK HE REALLY DID SAY THIS CRAZY SH#T. WHEN I HEARD HIM SAY THE COMMENT ABOUT LESNAR THAT IS WHEN I TURNED MY RADIO OFF AND STOPPED LISTENING TO IT.

I KNOW SOME PEOPLE WHO READ MY POST WILL SIMPLY LAUGH THIS OFF AND NOT CARE BECAUSE IT'S HOGAN BUT I THINK THIS PROVES WHAT KIND OF CONCEITED PERSON TERRY BOLLEA REALLY IS. I THINK I AM BREAKING RONNIE'S RECORD FOR A LENGTHY POST BUT IT IS ABOUT TIME SOMEONE DID. DAVID I ASK THAT YOU PLEASE PUT THIS POST ON YOUR MESSAGE BOARD BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH MOST WRESTLING FANS KNOW HOW HEARTLESS AND CONCEITED TERRY BOLLEA IS I HOPE THE IGNORANT PEOPLE THAT DON'T KNOW ANY BETTER READ THIS WERE THEY WILL KNOW WHAT WE HAVE KNOWN FOR YEARS. BOTH STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN AND THE ROCK ARE THE REAL REASON FOR WWF'S RATINGS SUCCESS IN THE LATE 90'S AND IN MY OPINION HOGAN IS JEALOUS OF AUSTIN BECAUSE HE KNOWS THAT MORE FANS RESPECT THE ROCK AND AUSTIN MORE THEN THEY EVER WILL HIM.

IT IS LAUGHABLE THAT HOGAN COULD BEAT AUSTIN IN A WRESTLING MATCH, AND HE COULDN'T BEAT THE ROCK OF FLAIR OR A LOT MORE GUYS EITHER AND THE HONEST TRUTH IS THAT HOGAN COULDN'T BEAT ANYBODY WITHOUT HIS CREATIVE CONTROL CLAUSE SAYING THAT HE DON'T HAVE TO JOB. TERRY BOLLEA NEVER BEAT ANYBODY, HIS CREATIVE CONTROL CLAUSE DID. WHEN THE HISTORY BOOKS ARE WRITTEN I PROMISE TO GOD THAT THE ROCK AND AUSTIN AND FLAIR WILL BE A LOT MORE IDOLIZED AND RESPECTED THEN HULK HOGAN AKA MR. CREATIVE CONTROL WILL EVER BE.


MIKE L: Hey Paul nice to see you back in the room. You do need to add the Flair Shoot Interview Video to your Flair collection cause I have already watched all 13 plus hours of it and you can't have a true Flair collection without having the Shoot Video. Yeah I seen Flair putting Cena over and I am not one of the people who don't like Cena. I think Cena is great and he deserves to be champion. and Paul you're right about the wrestling industry not being as good without the Naitch but I got a solution to part of that problem and that is TNA wrestling. I have started watching them recently and I think they are a great company with loads of talent. Have you watched them yet Paul? anyway nice to see you back in the room. Keep up the good work Webmaster Dave i love the site!
CALVIN: It is very exciting to know that we are going to have another "Flair" to root for in the future. Reid is the real deal my friends and he will automatically be my favourite wrestler when he starts his career. May the Legacy continue. Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!
FLAIRRULES: I hope Ric Flair and his Family had a great Thanksgiving. I can't wait to see you later this year at a autograph signing WOOOOOOOOOOOO
RYAN BERGMAN: i'm planning on going to meet Ric at a big autograph signing in a couple weeks here in N.J. woooo Ric has been my favorite wrestler for 20 years. he is the greatest wrestler who has ever lived, he is the greatest world champion the sport has ever seen, he made more stars then anybody ever has, he has had more classic matches then anybody ever has, he is the best ever on the microphone, he is the most believable in the ring, his work ethic is second to none, he is the classiest wrestler who ever lived, his Wooo catch-phrase is the most famous catch-phrase ever in sports, he has drew the highest ratings in wrestling history, he is the most respected wrestler who has ever lived, and his retirement send-off the night after wrestlemania was the most memorable moment in the history of wrestling, and he is STILL the man. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
MARTY: David you got the best Flair website I've ever seen. It is Awesome. Great Job Sir!!! Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
TJ: Paul is right Flair fans-- "wwe without the Nature Boy Sucks and the ratings prove it-- "there is only one Naitch and he will never be replaced.
WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: Hey Flair fans this is kind of different but a longtime supporter and visitor to my website Paul Westbrook has asked me personally to sign the message board to let everyone know of his feelings on Brian's post............. Hey Paul now i am going to copy and paste your comments in with this post............... the following comments below are from Paul Westbrook.

Paul Westbrook = Hogan's comments show that he is a conceited arrogant prick which Im sure youve heard me say all along. Ric Flair is what makes wrestling not some hack like Hogan or Bollea or whatever the f his name is these days. Ric at least was unselfish and oh he worked with Steve Austin and had no trouble at all getting a 5 star match out of him. The problem with Hogan is he's not a star worker so how could he possibly get that out of his opposition.


MICK: I HOPE EVERYONE TUNES IN TO TNA IMPACT THIS THURSDAY NIGHT BECAUSE THEY ARE GONNA HAVE A LEGENDS CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH WITH SAMOA JOE VS. BOOKER T.  PLEASE RIC FLAIR GO TO TNA!!! PLEASE!! COME ON RIC PLEASE GO TO TNA!!!

JAMIE: Hey Flair Fanatics did all of you read Ryan Bergman's post?? that is so true Ryan. Great Post!!! Wooooooooooooooooooooo
ROBERT D: Brian i don't even have to comment on your post because nothing surprises me when it comes to that arrogant piece of garbage. He is a nobody and nobody gives a sh#t about him. Flair would NEVER NEVER say that about stone cold steve austin. thanks Brian for giving us that info!

I HOPE HE COMES IN AND CHOPS THE HELL OUT OF THE NASTY BOYS AS ONLY THE MAN CAN DO. WOOOOO WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
STEVEN LANG: i am not going to mention his name because he ain't worth it but everyone knows that brock lesnar would tear you know who a new ass hole, and stone cold would kick his ass all over the ring and so would the rock, and god forbid the nature boy got him in the ring, flair would style and profile all over his overrated conceited prick ass any day of the week.  i say you know who "fn" sucks and flair and the rock and austin rule wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
JOEL PATRICK: i think all wrestling fans should be thankful that tna gives us a good show almost every week, wwe is good once in a while but the storylines are too predictable. tna is new and fresh and exciting and you have no clue what's going to happen next. thanks sammy for the preview for tna this thursday night and i will be be watching.

JACOB (FLAIR IS THE MONEY MAN) the ratings in the wwe has increased a little since John Cena returned but still nowhere the levels they were when Flair was walking the isle, how much do you bet Vince McMahon would KILL to get Flair back in wwe?? i bet Ric's agent Elaine Gillespie frequently gets phone calls from McMahon wanting Flair to come back. right now there is no way in hell that is going to happen Flair is making a sh#t load of cash these days and the last thing on his mind is wwe. to bad so sad Vinny Mac!!! lol!! wooooooooooooooooooooooooo

ROBBIE: Yes wrestling fans this angle between the Main Event Mafia and the TNA Frontline is exciting as hell and to me it is the best thing going in wrestling today, WWE has some great wrestlers but the Main Event Mafia vs. the TNA Frontline is my favourite thing to watch right now. I hope they don't turn on Sting but here lately Sting don't look too happy with them. The Booker T Samoa Joe street fight on TNA tonight was a great match up and they beat the crap out of each other. Great Site David and nice to see the man getting himself another key to another city. Woooooooooooooo

DANNY (FLAIR ON FOX NEWS TONIGHT) WOOOO I  SEEN THE NATURE BOY ON FOX NEWS TONIGHT, THEY WERE DISCUSSING HIM GETTING THE KEY TO THE CITY TODAY AND THEY SHOWED A CLIP OF HIM SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS. REALLY NICE TO SEE FOX NEWS BRING THEIR CAMERA CREW OUT TO THE SIGNING. THAT IS GREAT!! THEY NEED TO START MAKING MORE OF A BIG DEAL OUT OF A TRUE ATHLETE LIKE RIC "FN" FLAIR INSTEAD OF THEM MONEY HUNGRY EGO MANIAC HATEFUL MEAN SPIRITED SO CALLED ATHLETES LIKE THE BASKETBALL, FOOTBALL AND BASEBALL PLAYERS AND SO FORTH. MOST OF THEM GUYS COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THEIR FANS. ALL THEY WANT IS THEIR PAYCHECK. RIC FLAIR KNOWS THAT WITHOUT HIS FANS HE WOULD BE NOTHING. THAT IS WHY WE LOVE HIM SO MUCH IS BECAUSE HE REALIZES THIS. TO HELL WITH THE OTHER SO CALLED ATHLETES BECAUSE RIC FLAIR IS A TRUE ATHLETE AND ROLE MODEL AND CONGRATS TO HIM FOR RECEIVING THE KEY TO THE CITY OF GREENSBORO, N.C. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

It was also killer when the Nature Boy got in the ring and slapped the figure four on jimmy hart. 1-2-3- and the winners are the Flair's. Wooooooo i wonder how the party at the bar went for the lucky fan who won the drawing to go out on the town with the Nature Boy? damn whoever he was he was lucky, i can't imagine going out to a bar/nightclub and drinking with Ric Flair??? i bet Flair parties all night long!!  and not many people could out drink him either. great new additions to the website Dave!!

DAVID ZIGLER: I e-mailed Elaine Gillespie(Ric's Agent) through her site and told her to please tell Ric Flair to come to the Knoxville, TN. area for a photo session and autograph signing soon!! I have never met him and i really want to take my two sons to see Ric and meet him real bad. My two sons are 8 and 10 and they LOVE the NATURE BOY. let me explain how much they love him, one day last week my son (the 8 year old) got in trouble for talking in class while he was supposed to be listening. but he wouldn't talking he was Woooing instead. the funny part of the story is that on the note that his teacher sent home with him it said:::  Ryan got in trouble today for Woooing in class:::  lol i swear to god it said that. instead of saying he was talking in class it said he was Woooing in class. i was going to punish my son for talking but since he was Woooing i guess i will let it slide. Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
SAMMY: Hey Flair fans from New Jersey ,  Ric Flair's Agent Elaine Gillespie has sent out a special announcement to all Flair fans who was supposed to attend a autograph signing tomorrow. Here is her announcement

The Gillespie Agency, which handles Ric Flair's bookings, sent this out this morning: We regret that due to last minute demands and a still unfulfilled obligation by the promoter, Ric Flair will no longer be attending Magic Monikers 2 in Secaucus, NJ tomorrow, December 13, 2008. Ric is extremely disappointed to not be able to meet with his New Jersey fans this weekend. This is an unfortunate situation and we hope to be scheduled back in the tri-state area very soon!


ROBERT: LOL SCOTTY, FLAIR CAN PARTY AND DRINK ALL NIGHT LONG FOR SURE!! WOOOO, HE STAYS ALL NIGHT AND STAYS A LITTLE LONGER AND DANCES ALL NIGHT AND DANCES A LITTLE LONGER, WOOOOO  HE IS THE ORIGINAL KISS STEALIN WHEELIN DEALIN WOOOO LIMOUSINE RIDIN JET FLYIN WOOOOO SON OF A GUN WHO KISSES ALL THE FULL SWEATER WOMEN AND MAKES THEM CRY!!!

JOSEPH R: i read on the net today that Ric and Reid Flair will be appearing at the Big Time Wrestling events in Danbury, Connecticut on March 28th, 2009 and Webster, Massachusetts on March 29th, 2009 so you Connecticut and Massachusetts Naitch fans get out and see the man and support the Flair legacy as it continues for many more years. i enjoy reading the posts on the messageboard from all the Flair fans.
MARK: my cousin went to Walmart other day to meet Ric Flair for a autograph signing and he said he waited in line for over two hours and he said they were a sh#t load of people there and that the line was long as hell. he also said that Ric was a genuine good guy and seemed to be in a very good mood. woooo long live the man!!!
JOHNNY (RIC FLAIR'S REALTY SHOW WILL RULE) I AM SO READY FOR RIC FLAIR'S REALITY SHOW!!!  I BET IT WILL BE SO KILLER!!! RIC IS FULL OF CHARM AND CHARISMA, HE CAN BE FUNNY, HE CAN BE SERIOUS, HE CAN BE EMOTIONAL, RIC FLAIR IS VERSATILE MY FRIENDS. HIS REALITY SHOW IS GOING TO KICK ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
ICEMAN: WOOOOOOO!!!!!! WHAT A TIME WE HAD IN CHARLOTTE NC LAST SAT. NIGHT. THE LAST MATCH WAS KILLER AS HELL OF COURSE, ESPECIALLY WHEN RIC FN FLAIR ENTERED THE RING AND THEY ALL PUT THE FIGURE FOUR ON THE NASTY BOYS & JIMMY HART. THE CROWD WENT BALLISTIC!!!!!!. HULK HOGAN DONE A GOOD JOB AS A REFEREE, YES I SAID IT.!!!!!!!!!. PEOPLE WAS CHANTING HOGAN. WHEN THEY WERE LEAVING THE RING, HOGAN WAS PATTING RIC FLAIR ON THE BACK. SPEAKING OF TNA SAMMY,  ME & MARK & THE WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS ARE GOING TO CHARLOTTE NC TO SEE THE PAY-PER-VIEW ON SUNDAY JAN. THE 11TH. WE HAVE ALLREADY GOT THE TICKETS.

BRUCE: Hey all you Flair fans i love all the new stuff that is on rfgolds site!! woooo, the new pages about Reid's wrestling debut and Flair's key to the city is freakin awesome!!! Congrats to the Nature Boy on another accomplishment! He is still the man!! Woooooooooooooooooo
ERIC BLEVINS: Sammy Thanks for the heads up on Tna on Spike tv last week. i used to forget to watch it but not anymore, that TNA wrestling is without a doubt the best wrestling company in the world today. i don't give a sh#t that wwe and Vinny Mac has more money because money don't buy great wrestling and wwe is not putting out great wrestling anymore no matter how much money they have, all they do is screw the fans over all the time. Tna gives the fans what we want. the storyline in Tna right now between the Main Event Mafia and the Front Line Kicks Ass and is better then anything wwe has going on. i read were someone said that recently and i think it deserves to be repeated because it's true. Kurt Angle is not my favourite wrestler but the truth is he is the greatest active wrestler in the world today and he belongs to Tna wrestling!!
TIMOTHY: ROBERT LOL TO YOUR POST DUDE, DANCE ALL NIGHT AND DANCE A LITTLE LONGER LOL. HEY WITH FLAIR SHOULDN'T IT BE DRINK ALL NIGHT AND DRINK A LITTLE LONGER????    I THINK THAT SOUNDS BETTER DON'T IT??? AND I KNOW FLAIR WOULD LIKE THAT BETTER!!! LOL

QUINTEN: Woooo i am planning in Feb. to go to S.C. to meet the legend himself and the best wrestler to ever lace up a pair of boots the one and only Ric Flair. I have meet him once before but i lost my autograph, this time i will get his autograph and i won't lose it. I am so excited about meeting my favourite athlete ever. Woooo the Naitch Rules Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
RICKY DUNCAN: I GOT ONE WORD TO SAY AND THIS WORD IS THE MOST FAMOUS WORD THAT THERE HAS EVER BEEN IN THE HISTORY OF SPORTS. IT GOES LIKE THIS WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
CALVIN: Webmaster Dave you lucky dog!! you got to meet all the Beautiful Flair women at the wrestling show other night. How lucky can one man be?? They are all hot if you ask me. Even Flair's ex wife is still attractive!! That is awesome that Ric's daughter Ashley enjoys and goes to your website a lot. That is so Cool!!!
KENNY: Hey Flair fans, i really enjoy reading all you fans posts on the messageboard because most of them are really informative and i can tell that you fans are true hardcore Flair fans. Woooooooo Ric Flair does Rule Wrestling!!!!
THOMAS: yeah lol timothy funny ass post man!! lol!!
RONNIE (LAYING THE LAW DOWN) HEY ICEMAN SINCE YOU ARE FRIENDS WITH THE WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS OF RFGOLDS.COM'S RIC FLAIR WEBSITE YOU HAVE TO BE A COOL GUY AND I AM GLAD YOU GUYS HAD A GREAT TIME AT THE HIGHSPOTS WRESTLING EVENT IN CHARLOTTE A WEEK AND A HALF AGO BUT I AM RONNIE AND YOU KNOW THAT I TELL IT LIKE IT IS AND I LOVE LAYING THE LAW DOWN.

I AM GOING TO GO OUT ON A LIMB HERE WITH A PREDICTION OF MY OWN ABOUT WHY HOGAN DID A COMPLETE 180 AND APPEARED TO BE A NICE GUY OTHER NIGHT, I DO BELIEVE THAT HOGAN DID A GOOD JOB AS REFEREE BUT THE QUESTION I HAVE IS "WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF HOGAN WOULD HAVE DOUBLE CROSSED RIC FLAIR AND HIS BOYS AND TURNED ON THEM AND WENT WITH JIMMY HART AND THE NASTY BOYS???? WOULD HOGAN HAVE BEEN CHEERED THEN?? CAN SOMEONE ANSWER THAT???? I WILL TELL YOU WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED, THE WHOLE PLACE WOULD HAVE BOOOED HOGAN OUT OF THE HIGH SCHOOL IS WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED AND THAT IS THE TRUTH.

OF COURSE I'M GLAD THAT IT DIDN'T GO DOWN THAT WAY AND DAVID WAS COMPLETELY RIGHT IN HIS POST WHEN HE SAID THAT HOGAN SHOULD CONDUCT HIMSELF LIKE HE DID OTHER NIGHT MORE OFTEN, IF HE WOULD MORE PEOPLE WOULD RESPECT HIM AND NOT HATE HIM. I ALSO AGREE WITH THE WEBMASTER THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING AT THE WRESTLING EVENT WAS THE DEBUT OF REID FLAIR, THAT WAS MORE IMPORTANT THEN RIC OR HOGAN SO GOOD POINT MADE DAVID.

NOW DAVID I HAVE TO RESPECTFULLY DISAGREE WITH YOU ON SOMETHING YOU SAID ABOUT HOGAN NOT HAVING A ALTERIOR MOTIVE IN CHARLOTTE. HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT FOR SURE? I ADMIT THAT IT SEEMS LIKE HE FINALLY DIDN'T HAVE A HIDDEN AGENDA BUT AS WE ALL KNOW WITH HOGAN ALMOST EVERYTHING HE DOES IS BECAUSE HE HAS A HIDDEN AGENDA OR A ALTERIOR MOTIVE.

HOW DO WE KNOW THAT HE COULDN'T STAND THE FACT THAT RIC FLAIR'S NAME IS CONSTANTLY IN THE WRESTLING NEWS EVEN AFTER HE HAS RETIRTED AND THE BUZZ SURROUNDING THE CAREER OF REID IS SO BIG THAT HOGAN JUST CAN'T STAND TO STAY AWAY SO HE THOUGHT HE WANTED A PIECE OF THE PIE AND BY GOING TO CHARLOTTE TO BE THE REFEREE HE WAS GETTING A PIECE OF THAT PIE???

HE ALSO PROBABLY IS ENVIOUS BECAUSE FLAIR IS THE NUMBER #1 WRESTLING NEWSMAKER IN THE LAST SEVERAL MONTHS AND EVERYBODY IN THE WRESTLING WORLD AND AT THE WATER COOLERS WANTS TO TALK ABOUT THE HUGE CROWDS THAT FLAIR IS DRAWING AT ALL THESE AUTOGRAPH SIGNINGS AND ON EVERYONE'S MIND IS  "WHERE IS FLAIR GOING NEXT? AND DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE BIG CROWD THAT WENT TO THAT FLAIR AUTOGRAPH SIGNING OTHER DAY? THEM ARE THE QUESTIONS THAT PEOPLE ARE ASKING!!!

MY POINT IS REAL SIMPLE. WRESTLING FANS THAT REALLY KNOW THE WRESTLING BUSINESS THAT KNOW THE REAL LIFE OF TERRY BOLLEA KNOWS THAT HE CAN'T STAND IT WHEN SOMEONE ELSE IS GETTING PRAISED OR COMPLIMENTED AND NOT HIM. HE WANTS TO BE THE NUMBER #1 GUY AND THE FACT IS THAT RIC FLAIR IS THAT #1 GUY IN AND OUT OF THE RING. DON'T MISUNDERSTAND ME FANS BECAUSE I AM GLAD THAT HOGAN APPEARED TO DO THE RIGHT THING IN CHARLOTTE.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WHEN IT COMES TO HOGAN I SAY "DON'T COUNT YOUR CHICKENS BEFORE THEY HATCH" BECAUSE EVEN AT THE HIGHSPOTS CHARLOTTE SHOW I GUARANTEE ALL YOU FLAIR FANS THAT THERE WAS A ALTERIOR MOTIVE WITH HOGAN'S ACTIONS BECAUSE IT IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE. JUST WAIT BECAUSE I WOULDN'T DOUBT THAT IN THE FUTURE WE WILL BE HEARING THE REAL REASON WHY HOGAN APPEARED AT THE SHOW. MY NAME IS RONNIE AND IT HAS BEEN MY PRIVILEGE TO LAY THE LAW DOWN ONCE AGAIN.


NICK "THE FRICK" FRICKIE: Nick "The Frick" is back. How is everyone doing? Dave Just because i don't send you many e-mails for the Board don't mean i don't read all the messages because i read them all. Congrats from me too on the great Debut of Ric's son Reid. I also think that sometime in the future that Reid Flair will become a superstar in the world of pro wrestling. I just hope that he ain't rushed and they take their time with him and let him grow before they throw him into the fire too soon. you guys are right about that because as long as they don't rush him then i think he will be a true superstar. the kid is only 20 years old, Ric Flair didn't become a superstar until 1974 when he was 25 years old so there is no need to rush Reid. he has a long time to develop the professional skills needed. How excited are you guys about Ric's upcoming reality show? i think sometime after the new year we will be hearing more info about it.  ps Nick "The Frick" is out!!
MELODY: I wish i would have won the drawing in Charlotte to go out on the town with Ric Flair! That would have been great   Flair has a thing about buying everyone in the bar drinks on the house on him. I imagine that being in a bar with Ric Flair would be loads of fun and entertainment. I wish i could talk to the guy that won the drawing i bet he has a story to tell. Good site David and keep up the good work. Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
JAMES MULLIS: Wooooo Iceman "have a Cold one on me" Wooooo and let's drink a toast to the "Nature Boy" Ric Flair" Wooooo
CRYSTAL DAVIS: does anyone in the message board know if ric flair is going to come to the oregon area for a autograph signing in the future?? he is popular here and i have never met him and he is my favourite wrestler ever. i have always loved ric flair and i would be honored to meet him. thanks!
ADAM (RESPONDING TO RONNIE) Interesting post again Ronnie and i agree with most of what you said but i don't care about Hogan anyway? My main concern is that for one night (in Charlotte) he did what he was told by HighSpots. I know it don't and never will change what he has done in the past and i won't forgive him either for what he done politically to Flair and others and i have no respect him but again my question is Who Cares?  If Hogan would have screwed Flair over in Charlotte then Hell yes i would be cussing him every which way but loose but he didn't. He actually did what he was told, Ronnie if we do find out that Hogan had a Alterior motive for going to Charlotte then i will be the first one to say you was right but i hope that is not the case.    I hope Hogan at his age is starting to realize that he was WRONG for treating the fans and his co-workers like Sh#t all these years and because of his actions he has LOST the respect of most of his co-workers and the fans. Just maybe he sees that if you RESPECT people like Ric Flair has then you will be LOVED and RESPECTED like Ric Flair is. I agree with your post Ronnie but i am just giving you another scenario or perspective to think about.
KENNETH: WOOOO RONNIE I LOVE YOUR POSTS!! WHY WOULD ANYONE THINK THAT HOGAN DIDN'T HAVE A ALTERIOR MOTIVE WHEN HIS WHOLE CAREER HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT A ALTERIOR MOTIVE.. RIGHT??????? WOOOOO RONNIE KEEP LAYING THE LAW DOWN DUDE! WOOOOOOOOO!!
JANICE: David i have been coming to your website for about two years and back about a year ago i signed the guestbook sharing a story about meeting Ric Flair in the summer of 2004 and people seemed to like it so David if you don't mind i would appreciate it if you would post the same story i shared on the guestbook about a year ago on the message board. Luckily i copied the message and saved it to my computer so David i am going to include it in this e-mail and i would appreciate it if you would post it on your message board. I hope some fans that didn't read it back then will read it now because this is the type of posts that are meaningful and important and if anybody wants to respond to it please do so. I hope everyone likes it. Thank You David. Please post the message below.

I want to share a story about Ric Flair with everyone, in the summer of 2004 Ric Flair's book had just came out and he was going everywhere doing his book signings, he came to my local book store in town for a book signing, the signing was going to take place from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. but i had to work that day and i couldn't get off early so i went straight from work to the book store, i got there at about 5:30 p.m. which even though it was before 6:00 p.m. they wouldn't let me in the line because the line was still very long and Ric was going to sign everybody's book that was already in the line but that was going to put him signing already until 6:30 p.m. so that is why they cut the line off and wouldn't let me in it. i was SO heartbroken, then i was mad at myself for not telling my boss to stick it and left early so i could have got there earlier, so i asked the security guy if i could at least stay and watch Ric sign everybody's book and he told me that i could.

I stayed there and watched Ric interact with people but still very very upset that i wasn't going to be able to meet him and get his autograph, then i realized something that made me even more upset, i had forgot to bring Ric's book with me, and on top of all that they was completely sold out in the store so i couldn't buy one there, so now i had been turned down from getting in the line, wouldn't going to meet Ric and now even if i was in line i had nothing for him to sign. now i am really upset, so i stood there and watched Ric sign every last autograph and as people were leaving i couldn't help myself so i ran over to Ric and said "Ric i don't have a book for you to sign but i just want to tell you that "i love you" and it is a honor and a privilege to meet you and you are the greatest wrestler of all time, he looked at me and said "thank you very much honey" "i really appreciate that". then the security guy came over there and as god as my witness Ric looked at the security guy and said "no problem man"  that meant for the security guy to go away because Ric had things under control.

Then Ric asked me where was my book? i told him about my job and i couldn't leave work early and i forgot to bring my book and they wouldn't let me in line because i was late, he said wait right here honey" i had no idea what he was going to do, i was standing there nervous as heck. he went to the back of the store and was talking to someone then about 3 minutes later he walked back over to me and he was hiding something behind his back, then he said "what is your name honey" i nervously said Janice and he turned around with his back to me and i couldn't tell what he was doing, then he turned around and said here honey, IT WAS A COPY OF HIS BOOK AND INSIDE THE FRONT PAGE IT SAID, "TO JANICE" "GOD BLESS YOU" "LOVE "NATURE BOY" RIC FLAIR" I ALMOST FAINTED AND THEN I STARTED TO CRY AND HE GRABBED ME AND HUGGED ME AND SAID "DON'T CRY HONEY" I AM SORRY THAT THEY DIDN'T LET YOU IN LINE, IF I WOULD HAVE KNOWN ABOUT IT THEN YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN ALLOWED TO GET IN LINE.

Then he asked me if i wanted a picture taken with him, of course i said yes and luckily i remembered my camera so i gave my camera to a girl who works there and she snapped the picture of us, the picture turned out a little blurry but in the end it didn't really matter, he thanked me again for coming and i went and hugged him again and i told him that what he done for me was one of the sweetest things anybody has ever done and i could barely hold back the tears, then he looked at me and said something that i will never ever forget, he said " i am honored to do these things for my fans because without my fans there would be no Ric Flair!! and then we said our goodbye's and as i walked to my car and was driving down the highway i couldn't believe what had just happened, the day started off so bad and ended PERFECTLY!! i guess in a weird way i want to thank the security guy who didn't let me in line because if he would have let me in line then i wouldn't have got to have a whopping 5 or 6 minute conversation with Ric Flair. so thank you security guy. lol.

I hope all of you enjoyed my story, it is the nicest any person has ever been to me, i have meet alot of celebrities in my life but none has been more of a complete gentlemen then Ric Flair, I want to say in closing that my story that you just read is the real reason i am a Ric Flair fan, yes he is the best wrestler ever but there is more to Ric Flair then being the best wrestler of all time. he is a humble man who cares about all his fans and what he done for me proves it. i don't think they are many celebs who would do what Ric done. i will love him for what he done for me until the day i die. i have heard somebody say this before but i am going to say it again "Ric Flair is as good outside the ring as he is inside the ring, and us fans should be thankful for that!!


ALEX: ronnie it wouldn't surprise me either if we found out another reason hogan did the charlotte gig. nothing will ever surprise me when it comes to the politics of hoax slogan.
TIM LEHMAN: The TNA PPV Genesis is coming to "Flair country" Charlotte N.C. on Jan. 11th.  Kurt Angle vs. Jeff Jarrett will go head to head one more time. Their last match was freaking awesome and this one should be just as good. I will be there and i can't wait. Woooooooooooooooooooo
PAUL WESTBROOK: Hi Fanatics! Merry Christmas to all of you from myself, my girlfriend Kirsten and from my family to all of yours. Want all of you and especially Dave to know that for Christmas my wonderful girlfriend bought me the 4 disc Ric Flair Shoot Interview, and Im like WOW! I cant wait to see it tonight. So I would in turn like input from many of you who have already seen it. Am I going to be really impressed by it? I would like YOUR feedback and please reply. I dont want to feel like Im ignored, and that my opinions arent important as I for one value each and every one of you all.  So let's hear the feedback. And once again Happy Holidays. Keep on WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO'N! 

LEE MOXLEY: PEOPLE PLEASE!!! GIVE ME A BREAK!!! I DON'T GIVE A DAMN IF HOGAN GOT RUN OVER BY A TRUCK. I AM SERIOUS PEOPLE I DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT HIM. HE "FN" SUCKS AND I HATE HIS STUPID ASS SO PEOPLE SHUT THE HELL UP ABOUT HIM. LETS KEEP THE CONVERSATIONS ON TRUE TALENT LIKE NATURE BOY RIC FLAIR. OK PEOPLE???  IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!
ZACK: WOW WOW Janice i have only been coming to rfgolds for about 8 months so i never read your post when it was on the guestbook. Thank You for posting it again. WOW what a story!! I have always known that Ric Flair is a Class Act and a Great Person in real life and loves his fans but your story Janice proves this 100%. If anybody thinks anything bad about Ric Flair then they should read Janice's post and they will quickly change their mind. WOW Janice Thank You Again.
RICHARD: Hey Flair fans i got a question for everyone who reads the messageboard. """Would Hulk Hogan have ever done for Janice what Ric Flair done for her?  I hope everybody read her message because there is no way in Hell that Hogan would have ever done that nice gesture for her like Ric did. No way in Hell
GREG: Diamonds are Forever and so is Ric Flair. Wooooooooooo
SCOTT JENSEN: This message is to Janice that was a good story about you meeting ric flair . And that was good that ric told the security guard to let you in and that you got to have a book signed for you and a picture taken with Ric Flair . Since it seemed like nothing was going right for you on that day . I enjoyed reading your story and you were blessed on that day .

RACHELLE: Janice that was a heartwarming post about you meeting Ric Flair back in '04. I am happy that you shared that with us. Ric never ceases to amaze me at how generous and kind he is to his fans. Ric loves his fans more than any other athlete in all of sports. No doubt about it!! We Love You Ric!!

MICHAEL PARSONS: The NFL football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Baltimore Ravens will be the final game that will ever be played at Texas Stadium in Dallas, TX. The reason i am mentioning this is because Texas stadium has a special Ric Flair memory of it's on that took place on May 6th, 1984 in a match between Ric Flair and the Modern Day Warrior Kerry Von Erich for the world title and the match happened at Texas Stadium in front of over 43,000 fans. i rememebr watching that match in which Kerry defeated Flair for the title. Flair won the title back from Kerry 18 days later in Japan but the memories of that match in Texas Stadium will live forever. Long Live Texas Stadium and World Class Championship Wrestling and may God Bless Kerry Von Erich and the whole Von Erich family.
PAUL L: HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT SPORTS IN GENERAL WOULD BE LIKE IF ALL THE NBA BASKETBALL AND NFL FOOTBALL AND THE MLB MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL PLAYERS TREATED THE MEDIA AND THE FANS LIKE "NATURE BOY" RIC FLAIR DOES??? I MEAN REALLY..  RIC FLAIR HAS A CLASS ABOUT HIM THAT IS SECOND TO NONE. I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY THE OTHER CELEBS IN OTHER SPORTS CAN'T CONDUCT THEMSELVES LIKE RIC FLAIR DOES???  MOST OF THE PEOPLE IN OTHER SPORTS ARE SO MONEY HUNGRY AND EGOTISTICAL THAT THEY ARE NOT ANYTHING CLOSE TO BEING A ROLE MODEL. BUT RIC FLAIR IS THE OPPOSITE OF THEM. RIC FLAIR IS A TRUE ROLE MODEL IN EVERY SENCE OF THE WORD. I SAY "TO HELL WITH THE EGOTISTICAL ATHLETES" AND I THINK THEY SHOULD TAKE SOME LESSONS FROM RIC FLAIR ON HOW TO TREAT THEIR FANS. DO YOU FANS AGREE WITH ME?

JOHN: Great Site Webmaster Dave. You have no doubt got the best Flair site i have ever seen. Nothing compares to your site. Great Job!!!

MATT GENTRY: RICHARD THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION IN YOUR POST IS "NO" HOGAN WOULDN'T HAVE DONE THE GOOD DEED FOR JANICE OR ANYONE ELSE BECAUSE HE IS A OVERBEARING A#S HOLE MOST OF THE TIME. I HEARD THAT HOGAN CHARGES CLOSE TO $200.00 FOR A AUTOGRAPH!!  THAT IS RIDICULOUS. JANICE THANKS GIRL FOR SHARING YOUR AWESOME ENCOUNTER WITH THE "NAITCH". I ALREADY KNEW FLAIR HAD A HEART OF GOLD. I ALONG WITH THE OTHER FLAIR FANATICS ENJOY READING ALL THE POSTS ON THE BOARD.

ANDREW CLEARY: Paul Westbrook the Flair Shoot interview dvd is Explosive to say the least!! I am telling you the truth man it is great. Flair's pulls no punches in a massive 13 hour 4 dvd set. Paul the thing that makes it so great is that it is not edited. you know wwe edited everything on their dvd's but highspots don't. the dvd is uncut which makes it better then a wwe release. i started watching the dvd's and i ended up watching all 13 hours in the span of four days. i watched about 3 hours a day and it blew me away. it is the best shoot dvd ever and it has already outsold every shoot interview dvd set in history and Paul after you watch it you will understand why. Be sure to tell all the Flair fanatics on the board know how you liked it Paul. I hope my review helped you out. Whooo!

FREDDIE: Wooooo i am on my way to meet the Woooo Nature Boy Woooo in late January to get his autograph. I met him many years ago outside the Richmond, VA. airport so i can't wait to see him again next month----- Woooo

WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: We got updates to the site with a new page called "Christmas Flair Videos".......on the page there is two new videos everyone needs to watch and i hope everyone likes the new Christmas Design.............Hey Nick "The Frick" i got my own Catch Phrase pal..........PS  "Merry Christmas" straight from the Webmaster............Woooooooooooooooo..................................

KIMBERLY: David can you please put Janice's post back on the Message board and take it off the Archived board? I think her post is so heartfelt that it needs to be read for a longer period of time, thank you David.

WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: Yes Kimberly i will do that and you're right i should have kept it on the board longer. Janice's post is below......................

JERRY: yeah flair fans i couldn't agree more, janice's post was spectacular. thank you janice, ric flair is a humble emotional caring generous awesome human being and i will always respect him as a true pioneer in the world of professional wrestling. if it wouldn't for ric flair i would have never started watching wrestling as a kid. ric flair is still the man and by god he will always be the man. woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

FLAIRRULESWRESTLING: The Flair Shoot dvd interview is great. Nobody has as many inside stories in pro wrestling as the Naitch does. He has over 35 years of events to discuss and he does just that on the Shoot dvd interview. Paul Westbrook if you are a true Flair fan you will love the dvd.
BRUCE STRICKLAND: Oh My God Janice. You Fans are not the only ones impressed with Janice's post because when i read it it was so good i had to read it again. I don't know many people who would be that generous to a casual fan other then Flair. and certainly not A Hole Hogan because he cares about himself and himself only and nobody else. Thank You again Janice and Merry Christmas Flair fans. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
STEVEN BERNSEN: Paul L. I agree with you 100%.  that is why i don't watch much sports anymore especially the NBA because them guys make me sick and i refuse to be a fan of people that act childish and don't even have time for the fans when it is the fans that made them who they are. Thank God Ric Flair is not like this. Ric knows that without the fans he would not be who he is and that is a role model that i am proud of. Yes i agree with you Paul L.
JOEY BOWERS: David I love the new holiday home page! I just want to take a minute to wish everybody on this site a merry Christmas & happy New Year! WOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
RILEY: David the new Look to the Home Page is Beautiful. Great Job!! I also enjoyed the two new Flair videos on the Flair Christmas Videos page. Ric's expression on his face when he learns that Stone Cold is arriving is Hilarious LOL. and you are right David it is Classic Flair. That is what makes Flair so great. He can be serious and emotional and the next minute he can be funny and entertaining. Great Job and the site keeps getting better and better.
TAMMY: Ric Flair is the Sexiest Man that has ever been put on this earth and i would love to ride Space Mountain All Night Long. My Husband is crazy Jealous of Ric Flair.
CHRIS BOHANNON: great job on the site david. i couldn't agree more with paul L and steven. do you guys and gals remember dennis rodman from the nba?? that guy was a jerk, he used to kick the camera men and get technical fouls called on him so much they suspended him all the time. is that a real role model for christ sake?? no it is not. i am not the only one who could care less about the nba because their ratings are sh#tty just like wwe's ratings. and by the way ric flair drew a 3.9 rating during his emotional farewell send-off 8 months ago.    has wwe got a 3.9 rating since he left?? no they hadn't not even close. case closed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TRAVIS: Hey Webmaster Dave you may not like this e-mail and you might not put this on the message board but it is your decision but i want you to know that i love your website but i am damn tired of coming to the message board and hearing about hulk hogan. i know he ain't mentioned but once in a while but just one time is too much for me. I hate that "FN" SOB and his sorry non talented a#s don't even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Ric Flair!! Dave if i keep seeing Hulk Hogan's name on the message board i will stop reading it. I will just visit the other pages i will stop reading the message board. I hate that "FN" SOB piece of "FN" garbage!
GAVIN: Tammy  "what man that is married to a woman who loves Ric Flair ain't jealous"? every man knows that Ric Flair can have any woman he wants so of course theay would be jealous."
RASHIDA: I am one black woman who loves me some "Nature Boy" Ric Flair!!!   I would pour some Brown Sugar all over Space Mountain and I would have him Woooing ALL NIGHT LONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SHANE "O" MAC: David Merry Christmas to you and your family and you and Cindy have done another fantastic job on the site for another year. Congrats on a job well done. Thank You David for everything you do for the lifelong legacy of Ric Flair.  ps Shane "O" Mac is outta here!! Woooooooooooooooooooooooo
JESSE D: i detest watching nba basketball anymore. When Michael Jordan played i watched him but in the last several years trying to watch nba basketball is like watching a bunch of prisoners at your local prison. Most of them players have been locked up at one time or another or will be in the future. you guys are right they are not role models. Ric Flair is a true role model.
LANCE (I LOVE THE MESSAGE BOARD) I AM NOT SURPRISED THAT MOST OF TODAY'S ATHLETES DON'T HAVE ANY MORALS.  THE WORST THING THEY EVER DONE IN SPORTS IS LETTING THE ATHLETES SIGN THESE GUARANTEED MULTI YEAR CONTRACTS WORTH MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. THAT HAS RUINED MAINSTREAM SPORTS BECAUSE THE ATHLETES KNOW THAT IF THEY GET HURT ALL THEY GOT TO DO IS STAY HOME AND NOT PLAY AND THEY STILL GET PAID. THAT SHOULDN'T HAVE EVER HAPPENED. LOOK AT FLAIR AND HARLEY RACE AND TERRY FUNK AND ALL THE OLD SCHOOL WRESTLERS BACK IN THE 70'S AND 80'S. THEM GUYS HAD TO WORK OR THEY DIDN'T GET PAID UNLIKE TODAYS WUSSY BALL PLAYERS. I NEVER THOUGHT OF THIS UNTIL I READ YOU GUYS TALKING ABOUT IT ON THE MESSAGE BOARD SO THANKS FOR BRINGING THE ISSUE UP AND WEBMASTER DAVE PLEASE POST THIS MESSAGE ON THE BOARD. AND PUT "I LOVE THE MESSAGE BOARD" ALONGSIDE MY NAME WHEN YOU POST IT,  AND MERRY CHRISTMAS FLAIR FANS!
DONNIE: ric flair freakin rules baby wooooooooooooooooo
BRIAN: Hey David you said Ric's daughter Ashley gets on your website so if she reads this i want to say Merry Wooo Christmas to the entire Flair family. Happy Holidays ::::   Woooooooooooooooooooooo
DENNIS PARKS: Merry Christmas Webmaster David. I have supported your site for over two years and i hope you keep it going forever. It is the best Flair site ever and Happy Holidays to everyone that gets on the message board.
GLENN: MERRY CHRISTMAS FLAIR FANS AND A HAPPY WOOO YEAR!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
BLAKE: LOL Rashida LOL. I almost fell out of my computer chair laughing when i read your post!! LOL!! So you want to pour some brown sugar all over space mountain huh???? LOL. I am sitting here laughing again. I know ladies all over the world are in love with the Naitch so it's nice to know that women from all races love him too. Rashida LOL!!
ERIC: My responce to the person who told about wwe's ratings never recovering from the loss of Ric Flair is that i already knew that and they will never get those numbers again until Flair comes back if he ever does.
ROB AND TAMMY: I wish a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Ric Flair and his four kids Reid, David, Megan and Ashley, and a Merry Christmas to our awesome Webmaster David Matthews. We owe David a huge Thank You for having a website dedicated to the life and career of the greatest wrestler that has ever lived. Thank You David!
JOHN: i had rather watch paint dry then watch a nba basketball game. that crap sucks!! keep the conversations on the Naitch shall we??
ALEX 1: MERRY WOOOMAS TODAY, ONLY GOT A SECOND BECAUSE SANTA HAS NOT FOUND MY HOUSE YET AND I GOT TO GO BACK TO BED AND THEN MAYBE HE CAN FIND MY HOUSE. IF I AM AWAKE WHEN HE ARRIVES AFTER HE GIVES ME MY PRESENTS I AM GOING TO CHOP HIM AND PUT A FINGER IN HIS EYE, THEN I AM GOING TO GIVE HIM A KNEE DROP AND THEN I AM GOING TO CHOP BLOCK HIM AND DO THE "FLAIR FLOP" AND THEN I WILL PUT SANTA'S FAT BUTT IN THE FIGURE 4 LEGLOCK AND I WILL NOT RELEASE THE HOLD UNTIL HE GIVES ME ALL THE PRESENTS IN THE WORLD.

RAY: merry christmas webmaster david and co webmaster cindy. and merry christmas to the greatest professional wrestler that has ever laced up a pair of boots "the champ" nature boy slick ric flair. woooooooooooooooooooooo
CINDY  CO - WEBMASTER: Hello strangers, sorry i have been so busy lately with my school. Of course with the holidays David has been very busy so he hadn't had time to post any messages on the message board but yesterday morning he sent me several e-mails and asked me if i would put them up on the board and i was glad to help out being that i don't get to as much as i would like. i apologize to David all the time because i can't help out more then i do but i do what i can, David i was happy to help out by putting these posts on the message board and i am glad the site is so successful. it really feels good to be able to help out, Merry Christmas to everybody.
PAUL WESTBROOK: Hey there Fanatics. Hope Christmas was great for you. I can honestly say I had a great Christmas myself. Love the 4 disc Ric Flair shoot DVD set I got from my wonderful girlfriend Kirsten. Also wanted to let you guys know that my Ric Flair VHS set is now and will always remain a 16 tape set. I got an interesting match on the set. Flair vs Mr Gulf Coast aka Austin Idol. So here is my Flair collection to date. 16 tape set called Ric Flair; Legend, The Ultimate Ric Flair Collection DVD,  Ric Flair; the Definitive Collection DVD set, Ric Flair and the Four Horsemen 2 Disc DVD set,  and Highspots Presents the Ric Flair Interview 4 Disc DVD. Sounds like I can say I have the genuine Definitive Collection of Ric's career.

MIKE RICHARDS: HAS EVERYONE HEARD THE NEWS ABOUT AMERICAN GLADIATORS???  NBC SENT OUT A PRESS RELEASE LAST WEEK SAYING THAT THEY WERE CANCELING THE SHOW BECAUSE OF TERRIBLY POOR RATINGS. DOES THIS SURPRISE ANYBODY?? I WATCHED THE SHOW ONE TIME AND THAT WAS IT BECAUSE IT SUCKED. THE SHOW AIN'T NEAR AS GOOD AS IT WAS WHEN IT CAME ON BACK IN THE LATE 80'S. THE RATINGS BACK THEN WERE GOOD BUT EVER SINCE HOGAN WAS A CO-HOST ON THE SHOW THE RATINGS WENT DOWNHILL.

I DON'T HATE HOGAN LIKE MOST PEOPLE BUT FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE WHEN ARE ALL THESE PROMOTORS OF TV SHOWS GOING TO REALIZE THAT HOGAN DON'T EQUAL RATINGS ANYMORE, MAYBE IN THE WWF IN THE MID 80'S HE DID BUT THOSE DAYS ARE GONE. FOR THE MOST PART IN WCW HIS SEGMENTS GOT POOR RATINGS AND HOGAN KNOWS BEST ON VH1 GOT CANCELED BECAUSE OF POOR RATINGS AND NOW AMERICAN GLADIATORS GETS CANNED BECAUSE OF POOR RATINGS SO I GUESS HOGAN NEEDS TO COME UP WITH A NEW SHOW CALLED  "HOGAN NEEDS RATINGS" AND MAYBE IT WILL GET SOME VIEWERS BECAUSE HIS OTHER SHOWS SURE AS HELL DIDN'T.  


TIM: I hope all ya'll Flair fanatics had a wooonderful Christmas i know i did.  i liked the Flair Christmas Audio on the site it is cool. I got a question for everyone. How many people would like to see Reid Flair start his career in TNA instead of wwe?  I figure Ric don't want his kid going to TNA from what he has said but i think it would be a better choice to get his career off the ground. If Reid goes to wwe in a couple years do you fans honestly think that Vince McMahon is going to push him even if Reid deserves the push? Highly unlikely if you ask me, McMahon has got his select few wrestlers that he pushes no matter if they deserve it or not and he is unlikely to change that. that is unfortunate but that is how it is in wwe. In TNA though you got a young talent pool because TNA's President Dixie Carter is not afraid to create new talent and take chances with who she pushes and that is why Reid Flair should start his career in TNA instead of wwe. Reid could go to wwe several years from now but he should start his career in TNA. How many fans agree with these opinions??
CHRISTOPHER: christmas was great for me my wife got me a dvd from some site on the internet with ultra rare flair matches and promos on it. most of the promos was from the superstation wtbs from '86 to '88. flair has a charisma about him when he gets going on the mic that is priceless. i watched two hours straight of him doing nothing but talking and it was more entertaining then any match by any other wrestler. he was that damn good on the mic. i will e-mail you later dave with a full review of the dvd. again i hope christmas was good for everybody and lets get ready for 2009 with more Flair autograph signings. I haven't got to see him in 8 years so hopefully he will come to my area real soon. woooooooooooooooooooooooo
ERIC: WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR YOU DON'T LIKE IT, LEARN TO LOVE IT BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST THING GOING TODAY, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
BRUCE WAHLBERG: "Woooo i want Ric Flair to come to Salt Lake City, Utah to sign Autographs"   He has a ton of fans here so Please Ric come to Utah and Walk that Isle and Style and Profile as only you can do. We want Flair in Utah!!!
JULIANNE (MRS. REID FLAIR) The guys in the room may not want to hear this but i got to say that Ric's youngest son "Reid" is very handsome. I am interested in seeing more of Reid not just because of his wrestling.  Go Reid i wish you all the success. Whoooooo!! 
DEREK: Who all predicted back in April of this year when Flair sparked the Ratings to a near 4.0 Rating that 9 months later the ratings would still be in the gutter????? the ratings are barely getting a 3.2 to a 3.3 each week and when Flair was a active wrestler the ratings were always between 3.6 to a 3.9. I can see why Vinny Mac has tried to get Flair to come back once in a while. he knows that Flair can get higher ratings then everybody else.

RICK J: Tim i had never really thought of it that way but you're right Reid would be better off to start his career in TNA and then down the road sometime go to WWE. I know Vince has his certain wrestlers that get all the pushes but hopefully if Reid starts off in TNA and ends up goin to WWE i would hope that Vince would give him the push he deserves. Reid has to earn the push but with his amateur background and his work ethic since he was a little boy i bet he earns it real quick. Tim great points made man
KEVIN:
CHRISTOPHER I GOT A DVD LIKE YOURS BUT MINE WAS FROM THE '85 TO '88 ERA WITH ALL INTERVIEWS AND NO MATCHES. CHRISTOPHER IS THERE A PROMO OF FLAIR ON YOUR DVD WERE HE HITS HIMSELF IN THE HEAD AND BUST HIMSELF OPEN AND HE IS HOLLARING AND SCREAMING??? THAT IS ONE HELL OF A PROMO.
CHUCK MATTHEWS: woooo i'm very happy to see intelligent people in the message-board who realize that tna wrestling is 10 times better then that wwe sh#t. i like the main event mafia. they are the most dominant group in wrestling today. the main event mafia rules woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
CHRIS B: I ENJOY THE MESSAGEBOARD SO MUCH IT MAKES ME GO "WOOOOO" EVERY TIME I READ IT!!!!
SCOTT JENSEN: When will Ric Flair have his reality show on TV I hope soon ? And I would like to wish Ric Flairs family a happy New Year as well .   Happy New Year to everyone here . And you and your Co Webmaster Cindy are doing a awesome job keep up the great work . I liked the two home pages with the Ric Flairs all in a line and i like the fireworks for to wish everyone a happy New Year
ROBBIE: Happy WOOOOO year Nature Boy fans. Let's Style and Profile our way into 2009 Shall We???? WOOOOOOOOOOO
TG: Message to Derek!!  The Ratings on WWE Television will NEVER EVER be as high as they was when Ric Flair was on the program and that is a Damn FACT and the PROOF is in the numbers and the numbers don't lie. Since April of '08 WWE has lost on average of 400,000 viewers each week and them 400,000 people STOPPED watching at the same time when Ric Flair Retired and we all know that was NO coincidence. Derek you are right in your post and everyone knows it. Thanks for bringing the subject up because wrestling and especially the RATINGS will NEVER be the same without "NATURE BOY" RIC FLAIR!!!
CHARLES: happy new year to every flair fan on the message board. also a big happy new year to the greatest pro wrestler that has ever walked the face of the earth the king of the ring and the icon and legend slick ric flair woooo
FRANK: Happy New Year Webmaster David and Co-Webmaster Cindy and congrats on having the best wrestling website in the world, and Happy New Year to the "Champ" WOOOO WOOO WOOOO WOOOOO
ERIC SMITHSON: i hope ric flair and his family had a merry christmas and i wish them a happy new year and david please don't ever close down your website dude it is killer and i am serious!! wooooooo!!
JOSEPH PILLARD: Ric Flair we here in Lincoln, Nebraska are dying for you to come here for a autograph signing and photo session because you have a ton of fans in the Lincoln area. Nebraska loves Ric Freaking Flair forever Woooooooooooooo
NICK "THE FRICK" FRICKIE: THE GREATEST PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING MATCHES OF ALL TIME IS THE "NATURE BOY" RIC FLAIR VS. RICKY "THE DRAGON" STEAMBOAT.  MY FAVOURITE ERA OF THEIR MATCHES IS 1989 AND MY FAVOURITE BOUT IS THE ONE FROM MAY 7TH, 1989 IN NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE AT "WRESTLE WAR" 89 WHEN FLAIR WON THE TITLE BACK FOR THE 6TH TIME IN WHAT IS REGARDED AS THE GREATEST WRESTLING MATCH IN HISTORY.  THIS BOUT WAS VOTED ON BY "PRO WRESTLING ILLUSTRATED" AS THE GREATEST WRESTLING MATCH OF ALL TIME AND MOST WRESTLING INSIDERS CONSIDER THIS BOUT TO THE THE BEST ONE EVER.

NOTHING WILL EVER TOP FLAIR VS. STEAMBOAT. FOR SOME REASON PEOPLE TALK ABOUT HOGAN VS. FLAIR.  "WELL HOGAN IS A JOKE COMPARED TO STEAMBOAT AND HOGAN AIN'T WORTHY OF TYING STEAMBOAT'S SHOES MUCH LESS ANYTHING ELSE. FLAIR VS. HOGAN WAS ALLRIGHT BUT FLAIR HAD TO CARRY HOGAN ALL THE WAY AROUND THE RING BECAUSE HOGAN DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO WRESTLE AND EVEN THOUGH FLAIR IS THE "GREATEST EVER" IT WAS HARD FOR HIM TO TRY TO WRESTLE HIMSELF AND WRESTLE FOR HOGAN TOO.

TOO MANY PEOPLE WANT TO TALK ABOUT FLAIR VS. HOGAN WHEN THEY SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT FLAIR VS. STEAMBOAT. LIKE I SAID BEFORE FLAIR VS. STEAMBOAT IS THE GREATEST WRESTLING MATCHES OF ALL TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!


ADAM: mike i appreciate the news about hogan's tv shows crumbling but honestly i don't give a rat's a#s about him. i know that it's cool to point out something that he does that falters or is unsuccessful and that is fine but i don't care one way or the other.  what does excite me is the Nature Boy's upoming reality show. that is something to get excited about. i bet his show kicks a#s and i can't wait to the day it starts, i will never miss a episode! and the ratings is another thing that we all know will never be as high without the ratings champ and true champ of all wrestling the man who walks that woooo isle and wheels and deals and wooo styles and profiles all night long woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
WILLIAM FORIANI: I disagree fans i think Reid Flair should go to wwe first instead of tna. just my opinion. 
DAVID T: Hey Sammy i know you like to give us the updates on TNA but i would like to give the update on the Awesome TNA PPV Genesis coming up next weekend in the "Flair Country" of Charlotte, N.C. the main reason i want to do this is because i am going to the event live and i think it is going to be a very good show. the show has three potential main events and it features the return to the wrestling ring of the Hardcore Legend Mick Foley. the entire card ain't finished yet but so far it looks good.

(Matches For TNA Genesis in Charlotte, N.C. on Sun. Jan. 11th)

  • Kurt Angle vs. Jeff Jarrett
  • TNA World Heavyweight Championship: Sting (Champion) vs. Rhino
  • Lumberjack match for the TNA Women's Knockout Championship: Awesome Kong (Champion) vs. Christy Hemme
  • Six Man Tag Team match: Mick Foley and The TNA Frontline (A.J. Styles and Brother Devon) vs. The Main Event Mafia (Booker T, Kevin Nash and Scott Steiner)
  • Tournament final for the vacant TNA X Division Championship: Chris Sabin vs. ? (Probably His Partner Alex Shelley)

KYLE: yeah guys ric flair's interviews over the years is as good as it gets. flair is definately the best ever on the mic. no contest.


FLAIRRULES: i finished watching flair's 13 hour shoot interview dvd yesterday and i was impressed. the man leaves no holds barred in the most revealing compelling emotional shoot interview i have ever seen. i have seen a lot of shoot interviews but Flair's is magnificent. thank god for highspots woooo
REECE: Flair tries to get to a lot of different states and cities to see his legion of fans but i suppose it's impossible for him to get everywhere. be patient flair fans and hopefully the Ric Flair Autograph Tour "09" will come to a city near you. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
MARTY BOLAN (RIC FLAIR STOP BEING GULLIBLE)   I KNOW YOU FANS WON'T AGREE WITH ME ON THIS POST BUT I DON'T CARE BECAUSE IT IS MY OPINION.  NO OFFENCE TO WWE, RIC FLAIR OR DAVID THE WEBMASTER OF RFGOLDS.COM.  DAVID'S FLAIR SITE IS FANTASTIC, AND RIC FLAIR IS EASILY THE BEST PRO WRESTLER TO EVER STEP INTO A RING BUT THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MY VIEWS IN THIS MESSAGE.

I THINK IT IS ABOUT TIME FOR RIC FLAIR TO STOP BEING SO LOYAL TO THE WWE AND VINCE MCMAHON. MY REASONS ARE AS FOLLOWS. RIC FLAIR DON'T NEED THE WWE ANYMORE. HE HAS PROVED THIS IN HIS SUCCESSFUL AUTOGRAPH SIGNINGS TOUR (IF THAT IS WHAT YOU WANT TO CALL IT) THAT HE HAS BEEN DOING SINCE HE LEFT WWE FIVE MONTHS AGO.

FLAIR IS IN SUCH HIGH DEMAND WITH HIS UPCOMING REALITY SHOW TV DEAL, HE HAS HAD SEVERAL OTHER OFFERS SUCH AS MOVIE ROLES FROM "INDIE" FILM PRODUCTIONS, A VIDEO GAMING COMPANY, A OFFER FOR TRADING CARDS IN HIS NAME, AND HIS AGENT ELAINE GILLESPIE HAS HIM BOOKED FOR SEVERAL DATS IN 2009 INCLUDING OVERSEAS IN PLACES LIKE "GODOMAR, PORTUGAL AND "EDMONTON" ALBERTA, CANADA WHICH WILL POCKET FLAIR "HUGE" AMOUNTS OF CASH.

IF YOU ASK WHY I AM BRINGING THIS UP IT IS BECAUSE THIS PROVES THAT FLAIR DON'T NEED WWE AND I THINK HIS LOYALTY TO WWE IS WHAT IS KEEPING HIM FROM MAKING A SMART BUSINESS DECISION FOR HIS SON REID BY CONVINCING HIM TO STAY AWAY FROM TNA WRESTLING. I ACCEPT THAT WWE IS A BIGGER GLOBAL COMPANY THEN TNA, BUT AGAIN THIS IS BESIDE THE POINT AND IT DON'T TELL THE TRUE STORY OF  WHAT MAKING A BETTER BUSINESS DECISION REALLY IS.

FOR YOU PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO ENJOY TNA WRESTLING (LIKE MYSELF) CAN YOU IMAGINE ALL THEM YOUNG GUYS ON THE TNA ROSTER WHO COULD WORK AGAINST REID AND IN DOING SO HELP REID LEARN THE PROFESSIONAL CRAFT. THERE IS NO DOUNT THAT REID DOESEN'T NEED TO LEARN HOW TO WRESTLE. HIS AMATEUR BACKGROUND IS LEGENDARY AND VERY FEW PRO WRESTLERS HAVE THE AMATEUR WRESTLING ACCOMPLISHMENTS THAT REID FLAIR HAS BUT THE PROFESSINAL SIDE IS WERE HE HAS TO LEARN AND DEVELOP.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE I THINK YOU FANS SHOULD UNDERSTAND IS THAT IN WWE THE POLITICS IS FILLED WITH EGOS AND BACKSTABBING AND THAT IS NOT A GOOD PLACE FOR A YOUNG KID TO GET HIS START. TNA WRESTLING WOULD BE A LOT EASIER FOR REID BEHIND THE CURTAIN BECAUSE IT HAS LESS POLITICS AND MORE GUYS WORK TOGETHER FOR A COMMON GOAL TO GET THE JOB DONE AND THIS IS ANOTHER REASON RIC FLAIR SHOULD CONVINCE HIS SON TO MAKE THE MOVE TO TNA WRESTLING.

I HAVE ONLY BEEN READING THE MESSAGE BOARD FOR A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME AND IN DOING SO I WAS SHOCKED BY ALL THE POSITIVE TNA REVIEWS AND THE NEGATIVE WWE REVIEWS. I ADMIT SOME OF MY THOUGHTS IN THIS POST I TOOK FROM ANOTHER POST I READ ON THE MESSAGE BOARD. FLAIR FANS DON'T TAKE THIS THE WRONG WAY BUT IT IS TIME RIC FLAIR STOOD UP AND DID WHAT IS IN THE BEST INTEREST FOR HIS SON INSTEAD OF BEING NAIVE TO WWE AND MCMAHON.

WHATEVER REID FLAIR CHOOSES TO DO HE SHOULDN'T DO IT UNTIL A COUPLE YEARS FROM NOW BUT THERE SHOULDN'T BE BUT ONE CHOICE FOR HIM.  I KNOW RIC FLAIR IS THE BEST WRESTLER EVER AND A GREAT GUY BUT IT IS TIME FOR HIM TO QUIT BEING SO DAMN GULLIBLE AND CONVINCE HIS SON REID TO HEAD INTO THE IMPACT ZONE OF TNA WRESTLING. RIC NEEDS TO DO THE RIGHT THING FOR HIS SON!!!


MICHAEL: Does anyone know how to get a hold of some of the nwa mid atlantic footage from the late 70's of ric when he teamed with greg the hammer valentine?? my dad used to talk about them all the time, my dad said that flair and valentine was one of the best tag teams ever in rasslin. i wish i could see some old videos of flair from the 70's era because everybody always talks about flair of the 80's and 90's but what people seem to forget is that flair was very good in the 70's. of course i never seen him back then but my dad has told me a lot about flair in this time period. can anyone help me with this?
FRANK: From what i have heard the ric flair reality show won't be finalized until sometime in the next month or so. in any tv show you have all the red tape and crap that takes a lot of time to finalize. i advise all the flair fans to be patient. we should know something in the next couple months.
EDDIE: HAS ANYONE WATCHED SMACKDOWN LATELY? I WATCHED IT LAST WEEK AND IT WAS REAL BORING. RAW AIN'T GREAT EITHER BUT IT IS MILES BETTER THEN SMACKDOWN. AT LEAST RAW HAS A TRUE SUPERSTAR LIKE JOHN CENA ON THEIR SHOW SO THAT MAKES IT BETTER. SMACKDOWN IS SO BAD I DON'T EVEN KNOW IF THE NAITCH HIMSELF COULD SAVE THEM.
SAMMY: Hey again Wrestling fans here is my weekly preview of TNA impact on Spike TV. and thanks Webmaster Dave for posting my e-mails like you always do. Thanks Man!

JOEY BOWERS: Hey Micheal my man how are you? I saw your post & I have 1 source of video for you. That is if you don't mind buying an Ole Anderson dvd. Go to Highspots.Com & search for Ole Anderson. You will find an Ole Anderson 2-disc dvd shoot interview. The bonus features on disc 1 contains 3 exciting matches of Flair & Valentine vs. Ole & Gene Anderson. You're getting about 6 minutes from each match plus a few promos with Ole. I realize Micheal you may not be an Anderson fan & I understand. But I don't know anyplace else to find the matches you want. If you want to know how big an as#hole Ole is read the 2 reviews I posted on Highspots.Com. They are listed by Wayne from Jonesville NC. If you buy the dvd I know you'll love these matches. I sure did!
BRUCE WAHLBERG: Today i seen a poll on a wrestling website were fans voted on who they think the greatest "Heel" (Bad Guy) of all time is. David if you got time i would like for you to post the results on your messageboard. I think it's safe to say who won the vote ain't it?

Greatest heel of all-time poll

Ric Flair 36.8%

The Sheik 19.8%

Roddy Piper 13.8%

Fred Blassie 6.9%

Buddy Rogers 6.0%

Killer Kowalski 4.7%

Terry Funk 4.6%

Abdullah the Butcher 3.1%

Ray Stevens 1.3%

Johnny Valentine 1.0%

Superstar Billy Graham 1.0%


CHRIS B: Ric Flair is the Kiss Stealin Wheelin Dealin Limousine Ridin Jet Flyin Son of a Gun Who kisses all the Girls and takes them on a ride called Space Mountain. Whether you like it or you don't like it, learn to love it because it is the best thing going today. Space Mountain may be the oldest ride in the park--- But it still has the longest line!!! Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
BRENT PAXON: Michael i got the perfect place for your old wrestling video needs. a site called www.wrestlinghits.com is a great place that has thousands of videos in every catagory you want. a guy sells them for $12.99 a piece and the more you buy the cheaper they are, he has old nwa videos from the 70's with Flair wrestling guys like Bobo Brazil and Dick Murdoch, and has the greatest matches of all time with Flair vs. Steamboat from '77, Flair vs. Wahoo McDaniel, plus Flair and Greg Valentine and the Missouri Mauler vs. Ole and Gene Anderson and Nature Boy Buddy Rogers in a 6 man Cage match, Flair vs. Blackjack Mulligan, and much more Classic Flair, not just Flair they got Dory Funk Jr. vs. Jack Brisco and Johnny Valentine vs. Wahoo McDaniel. it is a great site that has to be seen to be believed. i hope this helps you out Michael.
TOMMY: bruce thanks bud for sending us that list of the best heels of all time. well hell yeah of course the naitch is at the top of the list, that is what makes flair the damn man, he is the best heel of all time and the best pure wrestler of all time too. the naitch is everything. woooooooooooooooooooooo
CALVIN: GREAT LIST BRUCE. WHAT MADE FLAIR A SPECIAL HEEL IS THAT HE MADE YOU "HATE HIS GUTS" AND YOU WANTED HIM TO LOSE THAT WORLD TITLE EVERY TIME HE DEFENDED IT, FLAIR WANTED YOU TO PULL FOR THE BABYFACE AND IN THE PROCESS OF BEING A MASTER "HEEL" HE PRACTICALLY MADE SEVERAL GUYS CAREERS BY BEING A MASTER "HEEL" IT WAS FLAIR'S JOB TO GET YOU TO "DETEST HIM" AND NOBODY DONE IT BETTER!!!! THAT IS WHAT MAKES A GREAT HEEL IS MAKING THE FANS HATE YOU. WHAT MADE FLAIR SO UNIQUE WAS THAT HE COULD BE A HEEL AND PEOPLE HATED HIM AND THEN WHEN HE WENT BACK BABYFACE HE WAS POPULAR AS EVER. AND IN THE END HE GAINED THE MOST RESPECT THEN ANYONE EVER HAS.
JOEY BOWERS: Brent Paxon thank you for the tip about wrestlinghits.com. You must be a messenger from heaven man! I  checked out this site today. They have many old Ric Flair matches & lots more that I had forgotten about. So thanks again Brent. Have a good one!
RYAN: You fans don't imagine how much red tape and tons of little things that have to be put into place to get a reality show up and running off the ground. There is more to it then people think. have patience like the other post said and we will all be happy in the end. i guarantee all you Flair fans that the reality show will be very entertaining. have you ever known Ric Flair to not be entertaining?
DENNIS: Hey David Matthews the Webmaster I am sure you've heard this a thousand times before but man I must repeat it again. "Your Flair site is the BEST Flair site ever and your site has to be the BEST wrestling site I have EVER witnessed. BAR NONE!! I have NEVER seen as much info about one man as you have on Ric Flair. It would take a person hours and hours and hours to go through every page on your site. WOW man your site is the sh#t. For any info about Ric Flair all anyone has to do is go to www.rfgolds.com and they will be satisfied in a heartbeat. David Didn't you say that Flair himself knows about your site?  if so then he has to be pleased that someone like you would pay him the respect to have the ULTIMATE website devoted to him. Congrats David.  your site is Da Bomb and it RULES man. Please put this e-mail on the message board. By the way I love the board too. I love everything about your site. I say a big Woooooo to your website Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
JESSE D: I like Sammy's previews that he does for tna impact's show every week. if you would have told me a year ago that i would be tuning in to tna wrestling on a regular basis i would have told you that you were crazy but the truth is that wwe has grown stale. i still watch wwe occasionally but right now i think tna has a better product for the fans, but anyone thats holding out hope that ric will go to tna don't hold your breath because i don't think it will ever happen. it would be cool if he did but i don't see it happening.
PHILLIP WALLACE: ok guys i know a lot of you want ric flair to go to tna, ok first off i am not a fan of tna wrestling and if flair did go what would you guys want him to do when he got there? just curious and i hope you respond to my question.
RODNEY: I know all of the folks on the site hate Vince and I am no big fan of his but maybe Naitch is loyal to Vince because he genuinely appreciates the guy and truly knows a side of him that the rest of us donít. When someone loans you nearly a million dollars unsecured that is a pretty good indication of the nature of the mutual respect that the two people must have for each other. Naitch got a six month send-off that has been unrivaled by anyone in the history of the business that reenergized his earning potential post wrestling. Did Vince always handle Naitch the way I wanted him to be handled? No! But I think Ric Flair would tell all of us that Vince McMahon is pretty high on his list of people he respects in the business and that he has never been treated any better than when he was with Vince. Again, I am no fan of Vince McMahon and I no longer watch the current product because Flair isnít there, but Flair is being loyal because of his personal relationship with the McMahon family and because Flair is a loyal guy.

By the way, Flair has a guaranteed job for life back with Vince anytime he wants it. I would say that may be example of Vinceís loyalty and respect for Ric Flair.


JOSH: wwe sucks, they got good wrestlers but the bookers have no clue how to use them.  in tna the wrestlers are used very well which makes the storylines in tna better, my two favourite wrestlers in tna is jeff jarrett and sting. i do admit that if flair came back to wwe then they would be awesome again but not until then.
BOBBY: BRENT THAT LOOKS LIKE A GOOD SITE WITH RARE VIDEOS. I HADN'T HAD A CHANCE TO LOOK AT ALL FLAIR'S MATCHES ON THERE YET BUT I WILL. I WOULD ENJOY SEEING SOME FLAIR FROM THE 70'S. THAT IS WHEN THE "LEGEND" BEGAN SO I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT, I BET THE FLAIR VS. BLACKJACK MULLIGAN WAS A GREAT BOUT, BLACKJACK WAS AS TOUGH AS THEY COME, AND WAHOO MCDANIEL IS ONE OF THE ALL TIME GREAT LEGENDS IN WRESTLING SO I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THAT MATCH. THANKS BRENT.
RICKY: I got one important thing to say   "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"
ERIC JOYNER: i watch wwe and tna both once in a while but without ric flair it ain't the same anymore. flair was such a important part of wrestling that without him it kinda sucks. flair rules forever woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
CALVIN: RODNEY I SEE YOUR POINT MAN AND YOU'RE PROBABLY RIGHT, THE PROBLEM I HAD WITH VINCE IS THAT EVEN THOUGH RIC WAS NO LONGER IN HIS PRIME WHEN HE RETIRED HE SHOULD HAVE HAD ONE FINAL SHORT RUN WITH THE TITLE, I KNOW HE IS THE GREATEST WORLD CHAMP OF ALL TIME BUT HE STILL SHOULD HAVE HAD ONE MORE RUN WITH THE GOLD BEFORE HE FINISHED HIS CAREER.
RODNEY: Calvin, I agree on the one final title run deal.  If they can give the world belt to C.M Punk and people find that believable, they could have given it to Naitch one more time.

KELVIN: I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE STARRCADE DVD THAT COMES OUT TUESDAY.  MY DAD TOOK ME TO SEE THE FIRST ONE IN '83 AS A 12 YEAR OLD BOY AND THEY NAMED IT "A FLAIR FOR THE GOLD" WHEN FLAIR BEAT HARLEY RACE IN A CAGE FOR THE BELT. MY DAD TOOK ME TO THE GREENSBORO COLISEUM TO SEE THE MATCH. THAT NIGHT WAS WHEN I BECAME A RIC FLAIR FAN AND I HADN'T STOPPED BEING ONE SINCE AND I NEVER WILL.

I ALSO WATCHED THE WRESTLEMANIA EVENTS BUT I LIKED THE STARRCADES A LOT BETTER. YES THE LIST OF MATCHES ON THE DVD LOOK GREAT. I HADN'T WATCHED THE LUGER VS. FLAIR BOUT THAT YOU GUYS ARE TALKING ABOUT SINCE IT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT IN '88. MY UNCLE HAD A OLD SATELLITE DISH AND ME AND MY DAD WOULD GO OVER TO HIS HOUSE TO WATCH THE BIG EVENTS AND I REMEMBER WATCHING THAT BOUT ALONG WITH OTHER FLAIR MATCHES.

THE STARRCADE DVD WILL BRING BACK A LOT OF MEMORIES FOR ME AND I WILL CHERISH THEM MEMORIES THE REST OF MY LIFE. I THINK WE ALL OWE A BIG THANK YOU TO RIC FLAIR FOR BRINGING US SO MANY MEMORIES THROUGOUT THE YEARS. ALL RIC FLAIR EVER WANTED TO DO WAS GIVE HIS BEST AND MAKE HIS FANS HAPPY AND GLAD THAT WE BOUGHT A TICKET OR WATCHED HIM PERFORM ON TV. I AM SURE GLAD THAT I ATTENDED THAT STARRCADE 25 YEARS AGO BECAUSE THAT NIGHT FOREVER CHANGED MY LIFE. THANK YOU AGAIN CHAMP!! 


CHUCK: david great new page you added to the site. i knew about the new starrcade dvd coming out but i forgot about it. i will be buying it, great matches included on the set. i loved the starrcade ppv's especially before wcw but bischoff as boss because after that they went downhill in my opinion. the best starrcade era was from '83 till '93. great new page.
ERNIE (STARRCADE DVD IS GOING TO BE GREAT) WOOOOO FOR THE NEW STARRCADE DVD. I ALREADY PRE-ORDERED MY COPY THROUGH "AMAZON" AND I AM COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS TILL IT ARRIVES. DAVID I AGREE WITH YOU ABOUT THE LUGER FLAIR BOUT FROM STARRCADE 88. LUGER WAS NEVER A GREAT WRESTLER BUT HE WORKED HARD IN THIS MATCH AND FLAIR WAS IN A LEAGUE OF HIS OWN IN 1988 AND HONESTLY IN 1988 FLAIR COULD HAVE CARRIED A FREAKIN BROOMSTICK TO A **** MATCH. IT WAS A GOOD MATCH AND I AM GLAD IT WILL BE PUT ON DVD FOR THE FIRST TIME; AND THE I QUIT MATCH WITH MAGNUM TA AND TULLY BLANCHARD IT IS MY FAVOURITE I QUIT MATCH EVER. I COULD GO ON AND ON ABOUT THE LIST OF MATCHES. THE STARRCADE DVD IS GOING TO KICK ASS WOOOOOOOOOOOO!
MICKY: i have not been keeping up with upcoming dvd's so i had no idea about the new starrcade dvd set so thank you david and thank you rfgolds.com for informing me about it. i will probably buy it. the matches on the set look incredible. thanks david
GREG Z: Ric Flair is Starrcade!!! Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

CHRISTY HEMME INJURED: UNABLE TO COMPETE THIS SUNDAY AT "GENESIS"

TNAwrestling.com has learned that Christy Hemme has sustained a neck injury while training in the ring with AJ Styles for Sunday's Women's Championship match.

According to TNA officials, Hemme will be unable to compete at "Genesis" against Awesome Kong.

Unfortunately, her injury will require surgery and she will be out of action for an undetermined amount of time.

On Sunday, TNA Management Director Jim Cornette will name a replacement to face Kong for the Women's Championship.

Everyone at TNA wishes Christy all the best and we will certainly update fans on her condition as we learn more information.


RICK J: Flair fanatics i heard a rumor that tna wrestling's president Dixie Carter and Founder Jeff Jarrett has been in contact with Ric Flair about showing up at the tna ppv Genesis. they are trying to talk Ric into appearing, if this happened it would SHAKE up the wrestling world wouldn't it?  I doubt it happens but MY GOD can you imagine if it did. WOW!!!
TIMOTHY: HELL YEAH NOTHING IS BETTER THEN THE STARRCADE EVENTS FROM THE NWA. STARRCADE STARTED IT ALL AND WAS THE FIRST BIG WRESTLING EXTRAVAGANZA. I WILL BE BUYING THE DVD THIS TUESDAY. RIC FLAIR AND STARRCADE RULES. GREAT NEW PAGE. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
CJ: rick j  i doubt that flair shows up too but i am not surprised that the tna bunch would try to get ric to make a appearance. everybody wants a piece of ric don't they???
WALTER: I ordered the TNA ppv last night and it was absolutely AWESOME. I know Ric Flair was obviously not there on camera but my question is if anyone knows if he was there backstage off camera??
JIMMY K: woooo starrcade dvd definitive collection coming out tomorrow. woooooo i got to go to work but my girlfriend is going to our local walmart and picking up a copy for me, this dvd is probably going to be one of the best dvd's ever put out. of course it won't be as good as Flair's two dvd's but it should be great though. starrcade is my favourite ppv's ever wooooo
JAMES BLEVINS: THE BEST THING ON THE STARRCADE DVD SET FOR ME IS GOING TO BE FLAIR VS. VADER (STARRCADE '93) FOR THE FIRST TIME ON DVD. I GOT THE ORIGINAL STARRCADE '93 VHS BUT AS EVERYONE KNOWS VHS IS NOT DVD QUALITY. I AM REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT AND THE BIO THAT WWE DOES. HEY WEBMASTER DAVE I GOT A QUESTION FOR YOU, I SEEN YOUR REVIEW ON THE STARRCADE DVD INFO PAGE AND I WAS CURIOUS TO HEAR MORE ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE BEING THERE LIVE IN THE AUDIENCE FOR ONE OF RIC FLAIR'S MOST MEMORABLE MATCHES IN WHICH HE DEFEATED VADER FOR THE WORLD TITLE?

CAN YOU SHED SOME LIGHT FOR US ABOUT WHAT THIS MOMENT MEANT FOR YOU TO WITNESS IT LIVE? YOU ARE VERY LUCKY SO I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR MORE ABOUT THIS. YOU CAN E--MAIL ME OR YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE MESSAGE BOARD IT DON'T MATTER. I THINK ALL THE FLAIR FANATICS WOULD LIKE TO HEAR ABOUT IT THOUGH SO COULD YOU PUT IT ON THE MESSAGE BOARD? I APPRECIATE IT.


SHAWN MACPHERSON: David i went to the TNA PPV in Charlotte last night and when i went to my car to go home i had a Flyer on my car with your website on it. i went to your site around 4 pm today and i didn't get off of your site until after 9 pm. -- Jesus "Freakin" Christ dude what a Hell of a site!! 5 "fn" hours on your site and i didn't want to get off of it. I don't think i have never seen a website with so much stuff on it as you have on yours. You my friend are doing the greatest wrestler of all time Ric Flair Justice with your site. Keep it up dude and you are on my favorites list. Wooooooooo Kudos to you
NWATRADITIONRULES: Diamonds are Forever and so is Starrcade!! Woooooooo!
ERNIE: Thanks for the flyer on my truck last night Webmaster Dave " I already knew about your site as i am a regular visitor to it and i love it. Thanks anyway though.
JEFF: i hope all you true old school wrestling fans enjoyed the jeff jarrett vs. kurt angle match from last nights tna ppv. i ordered it and it was one of the best matches i have seen in a long while. both of them was busted open and the blood in jarrett's blond hair reminded me of seeing the Naitch. i was praying ric was gonna come out and do a promo but i didn't get my hopes up too much.
GREG MULLINS: so dixie carter and jeff jarrett tried to talk ric flair into coming to tna?? sorry guys but as much as you fans want it to happen you need to forget about it. i don't think flair will ever go to tna. not ever!!!
MORGAN: WOOOO Webmaster it was great to meet you last night at the TNA PPV. i am the one who came up to you and asked if you was the webmaster to the Flair site because i thought i recognized you? remember me?  i told you last night that i go to your site all the time and i do. thanks for everything you do for my hero Ric Flair. WOOOO
TJ: good idea james that would be interesting to hear david's story on what it was like for him to be at starrcade 93 in charlotte when the naitch walked that isle and pinned vader for the title.
WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: Hello everybody, James i would be happy to share with you and everyone on the message board how it felt to be at Starrcade '93 live when Ric Flair's career was on the line and he took on Vader.............but let me do it on a night when i got time to go in-depth with all the details of the experience......... I will say it was a very special night..........for the next few nights i will be very busy and i won't have time but in the next few nights i will take a ride down memory lane to that special night in 1993 in Charlotte, N.C. when Ric Flair added to his incredible legacy. Thanks James for the request and i will be back soon...................

WALLY: Greg how do you know exactly what Flair will do in the future?  you gotta  remember that Flair's one year no-compete clause in his contract expires in August of this year so we won't know 100% what Flair will do until then. remember that Greg!
MICHAEL: ok i see you people are chatting about Starrcade so here goes my question. "What is everyone's favorite Ric Flair Starrcade match ever? the choices are as follows.

Starrcade '83 vs. Harley Race

Starrcade '84 vs. Dusty Rhodes

Starrcade '85 vs. Dusty Rhodes

Starrcade '86 vs. Nikita Koloff

Starrcade '87 vs. Ronnie Garvin

Starrcade '88 vs. Lex Luger

Starrcade '89 vs. Sting

Starrcade '93 vs. Vader

Starrcade '95 vs. Randy Savage


FLAIRROCKS: Great Starrcade info page David. i bought the dvd last night and i watched two of the matches and the bio and i think it's excellent and very informative. one of the matches i watched was the famous i quit match from 1985 between Magnum T.A. and Tully Blanchard, then i watched Flair vs. Vader from 1993, it is a great dvd and worth the $20.00 i paid for it.
KIMBERLY: i purchased the Starrcade Essential Collection 3 disc set and i am impressed  Ric Flair is so Hot on the dvd i can hardly control myself  and i love how he does promos in between some of the matches. really a great dvd ,and if you love Flair like me then you have to have this dvd.Woooooooo i Love Ric Flair  Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
DAVEY L: Kelvin great post man and i feel the same way. WOOO!
JAMIE: Current Country Music Star and former member of Hottie and the Blowfish Darius Rucker is a big time Ric Flair fan.I was watching a interview with him on CMT and he said that Ric Flair is his favourite Athlete of all time and that in the late 90's he paid $30,000 for one of Ric Flair's Robes at a Auction. "Damn" that is a big time fan ain't it?     i never really listened to him but now i will. Woooooooooooo i am a fan of Darius Rucker now.
JODI "FLAIR" Hey fellow Flair fans. I'm happy to hear that Reid and David Flair (with Ric in their corner) were victorious over the Nasty Boys (with manager Jimmy Hart)! I am sooo proud of the Flair's comming out on top, great match guys! And still to this day I'm wishing that I was there to see it live dang it. Oh well maybe next time, I mean who knows, huh? Well take care everyone. Wooooooooooo!

Jodi "Flair"


TIM Z: MICHAEL WHAT A HARD QUESTION TO ANSWER. FLAIR HAD COUNTLESS GREAT MATCHES AT STARRCADE BUT I WOULD HAVE TO SAY FLAIR VS. BIG VAN VADER FROM STARRCADE 93 IS MY ALL TIME FAVOURITE FLAIR STARRCADE MATCH.
TRACE BISHOP: Ernie you said that right no doubt that Ric Flair could carry a Broomstick to a 4 star match. Lex Luger in the beginning was limited in what he could do in the ring so Ric Flair and Arn Anderson took him under their wing and taught him how to wrestle and Lex became a decent wrestler and a hard worker in the ring, so Luger is another guy that Ric Flair made. Without Ric Flair's help Lex would have never made it as far as he did. and speaking of Lex i hear that he has had some serious health problems recently and had a spinal stroke and was paralyzed for quiet some time but he is now said to be able to stand on his own for short periods of time and walk using a walker. i hate to hear he has gone through that but glad to hear he is doing better.
JASON A: I was a Huge Four Horsemen fan and they were the greatest stable pro wrestling has ever seen, but now the greatest stable in wrestling is the Main Event Mafia from TNA wrestling. i am digging this feud with the Mafia against the Front Line and it is by far the best feud in wrestling at the moment. i hope when Ric's no compete clause runs out later in the year he goes to TNA and wrestles one more match. i bet Ric vs. Kurt Angle would still be a classic to this day.
BRUCE: Flair vs. Harely Race at the original Starrcade is my favorite Starrcade "Flair" match. This match is probably the most important wrestling match that there has ever been because it started what we now know as pay-per-view.
WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: Hello everybody, we have a new page on the site called "Austin Wants Flair" that everyone needs to check out........Steve Austin wants a very special person to induct him into the 2009 HOF so if you hadn't already read it then you should check it out..........Thanks............Webmaster, David Matthews............
NICK "THE FRICK" FRICKIE: The biggest news in wrestling right now is whether or not Vince McMahon will grant Steve Austin's wish and let Ric Flair induct him into the hall of fame. I have read some reviews on-line about this and several i read are talking like this is some type of shock to them that Austin is pushing for Flair be the one to induct him. I don't see this as a surprise. If anybody read Ric Flair's book "To Be The Man" and read everything that Austin said about Flair then this news shouldn't be a shock to anyone. Lets go over Austin's comments about Flair from 2004. Here is Steve Austin's exact words about Ric and then i am going to examine Austin's words.

AS FAR AS RIC FLAIR'S PLACE IN THE BUSINESS, IN MY OPINION HE'S THE GREATEST PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER IN HISTORY. IF I HAD TO NAME A GUY FROM THE ENTIRE WWE THAT IS THE BEST WORKER IN THE BUSINESS RIGHT NOW, WHO COULD HAVE THE BEST MATCH WITH ANYBODY ON ANY GIVEN NIGHT, WORKING HEEL OR BABY FACE, RIC FLAIR WOULD BE MY CHOICE. RIGHT NOW, AT FIFTY- FIVE. HE'S JUST THAT GOOD, AND IT'S JUST THAT SIMPLE.

Them are words from a man who has respect at it's highest level and a man who has that much respect for Ric Flair is allright by me. Congrats to Steve Austin for being the next member to go into the WWE Hall of Fame and i pray that he gets his wish and Vince McMahon has the Balls to do the right thing by letting Ric Flair do the honors for Steve by inducting the "Texas Rattlesnake" into the hall of fame.


MICHAEL: WOOOO "THANK YOU" STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN FOR INVITING THE "NAITCH" TO INDUCT YOU INTO THE HOF. THE HOF CEREMONY JUST GOT A LITTLE BETTER. WOOOOO OH HELL YEAH WOOOOOOOOOO
DEREK: Webmaster Dave great new page, i agree with you about Austin and Flair, Mcmahon is a dick if he don't give Austin what he wants.
BOBBY: I got a question, If Ric Flair inducts Steve Austin into the hall of fame then wonder how much BEER them two will drink at the after party????? do they even make enough BEER for them two??? LOL. LOL. LOL Woooooooooooo
MIKE: Hey David on Facebook i seen a link to your site for the first time, i would have seen it sooner but i just got a computer several months ago, i'm only 17 but i love the Nature Boy and i own a lot of his videos and i watch them frequently, even a young person like me realizes that Ric Flair is the greatest of all time. I am going to go through some of your site in the next few days. Whew!! David you got a lof ot things to choose from on your site, how long did it take to get all this info on it? what i have seen so far is the bomb!! keep up the good work. Naitch is still the man! Wooooo
GREG L: I GOT A MESSAGE TO MR. MCMAHON, LOOK AT THE RATINGS THAT THE HALL OF FAME CEREMONY GOT ON USA NETWORK LAST YEAR BECAUSE RIC FLAIR WENT INTO THE HALL OF FAME, THE RATINGS FOR FLAIR'S INDUCTION WAS THE HIGHEST THAT A HALL OF FAME CEREMONY HAS EVER RECEIVED SO FOR A MAN THAT CARES SO MUCH ABOUT RATINGS IT WOULD BE A BONEHEAD MOVE TO NOT HAVE FLAIR INDUCT STEVE THIS YEAR WOULDN'T IT? BUT TO BE HONEST VINCE SHOULDN'T HAVE RIC INDUCT STEVE JUST BECAUSE OF RATINGS HE SHOULD DO IT BECAUSE IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO FOR STEVE AUSTIN. RIC FLAIR WAS NEVER MY FAVORITE WRESTLER EVEN THOUGH I KNOW HE IS THE BEST EVER BUT I WILL BE HIGHLY PISSED OFF IF MCMAHON DON'T RESPECT STEVE ENOUGH TO DO THIS FOR HIM.
ERIC JOYNER: My favourite Ric Flair Starrcade match was Flair vs. the man with the hands of stone Ronnie Garvin from '87. them two chopped the hell out of each other and was exciting as hell. I have watched that bout over and over and never get tired of it. damn i miss them days!!
ANONYMOUS: THE STARRCADE DVD IS AWESOME. IF ANYBODY OUT THERE WANTS TO SEE GOOD WRESTLING FROM THE GRANDADDY OF THEM ALL STARRCADE THEN YOU BETTER BUY THIS DVD.
DALE C: I have not watched one second of wwe television since Flair left the company but if he inducts steve austin into the hall of fame then i will watch that night.
ABHINAV ANAND: I am a big fan of Ric Flair. He is the best ever was the best that is and the best that ever will be. Woooooooooooooooooooo !!!!!!!!!!! Plus I like his entrance music the best . I guess he has the longest career in wrestling.

Forever Flair.

Regards,

Abhinav Anand


JAKE RICHARDS: I know most of the posts i read are not happy with the storylines that wwe are putting out on their show every week but i watched tna impact this week and it was a great show with great storylines and it was a lot better then anything i have seen on wwe in a while. i tip my hat to tna president dixie carter for the job she is doing and of course we have to thank the founder jeff jarrett for his vision 7 years ago when he started the company. the only thing i would like for dixie carter to do now is hire ric flair!!! woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ROBERT: diamonds are forever and so is ric flair and webmaster dave i hope that rfgolds is forever too. your site is the best and i beg you to never take it down. thank you for everything you do for "the man" whoooooooooooooooooo
FLAIRFOREVER: WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR YOU DON'T LIKE IT, LEARN TO LOVE IT BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST THING GOING TODAY WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
STEVE CRAMPTON: Jake wwe is ok but you are right dude. tna was "fn" awesome last thursday. it was "fn" awesome and that's the truth. if any wrestling fan who knows anything about a quality wrestling program didn't think that tna was awesome last thursday then they are a moron. i know ric flair is busy as hell with autograph signings and his reality show but i think when he gets done with these things he should go STRAIGHT to tna and tell wwe to screw themselves. i swear to god he should go to tna.
RICKY: Nick The Frick i like reading your posts because you have done your homework. yes stone cold did say them exact things about ric so don't you think that vinny mac should honor stone cold by letting the man that he wants to induct him in the hall of fame do it? if vinny mac don't allow this i am never ever going to watch another raw or smackdown episode again, it makes no sence for him not to allow it. Nick The Frick we will soon find out if vinny mac has the grapefruits won't we??
MITCH SINISE:  the ratings for last years HOF ceremony were by far the highest ever for a HOF ceremony Greg.just like everything Ric touches he turns to Gold. Vince mcmahon knows this but sometimes he is a genious and sometimes he is a fool and if he don't have Ric Flair at this years HOF ceremony then he is a big fool
SAMMY: David if you don't mind could you post not only my TNA Impact preview for thursday night but also the recent results to the TNA UK tour.please put all of it on your message board. Thanks as usual and keep up the good work.

RYAN:  the new Flair and Austin page on your site webmaster Dave is very well done.I am going to be so damn pissed if mcmahon goes against Steve Austin and his wishes at the HOF ceremony.He better have the Naitch there to induct Austin.WOOOOOOOOOOOO
ERIC: I AM GOING THROUGH SERIOUS "FLAIR WITHDRAWAL" HERE LATELY AND  I'M DYING TO SEE THE FREAKIN "NATURE BOY" WALK THAT ISLE TO DO HIS NEW REALITY SHOW. PLEASE RIC HURRY UP I CAN'T TAKE THIS "FLAIR WITHDRAWAL MUCH LONGER. I KNOW HIS REALITY SHOW IS GOING TO KICK SOME MAJOR ASS "SLICK RIC IS STILL THE MAN" WOOO WOOO WOOO WOOO WOOO WOOO WOOO WOOO WOOO WOOO
BRIAN: Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
MICHAEL (IT IS ALL ABOUT RESPECT) I will always respect a man who respects Ric Flair. think about that. Steve Austin respects the hell out of Ric Flair so now it's time for Vince Mcmahon to respect Steve Austin enough to invite Naitch to Texas to put him into the hall of fame. it is all about respect!!!!!!
AMY: Does anyone know when Reid Flair will wrestle again?? i was going to the highspots show to see him in his first match in charlotte last month but something came up and i couldn't make it so i would really like to see him wrestle and he's got his daddy's good looks all the way.  Ric is the most Handsome ever but Reid will be the most Handsome in the future. Space Mountain is my favourite theme park  Wooooooooooooooo  
SAMMY (BIG TNA UPDATES) Hey again David and Ric Flair fans, i know i seem like a TNA freak but seriously fans in my heart i honestly think that TNA is in a league of its on and it is the best wrestling company in the business right now and i know from reading all the posts on the message board that i am not the only TNA fan in the room so David could you please post all the TNA info below? there is a interview with The "Beautiful People" Angelina Love and Velvet Sky and info on a great TNA dvd that will be coming out in April. Please post the following David. Thanks as usual man.

The UK's Daily Star has an article on The Beautiful People.

Regarding their original role in TNA, they were originally brought in to fill spots and be the "girls next door," but they were quickly turned into an arrogant heel tandem.

"I think we just exploded over the last year. It was our idea to do the Beautiful People tag team thing," Angelina said. "At first the boss wanted us to do the kind of cute girl next door thing, and we tried it, but it wasn't really us."

Both Love and Velvet Sky have paid their dues in wrestling as they worked on the indy circuit for a number of years for little pay.

"We are way more than (T&A)," said Angelina. "We started at the bottom, and worked our way up. We worked for little or no pay and slept in parking lots because we couldn't afford the hotels. We drove six hours for a crowd of thirty people and not getting paid."

Velvet Sky added: "Both of us had a million injuries and worked a million shows. We don't come from a Hooters background or a Hawaiian Tropic background, we worked our asses off to get where we are now, and that is the massive difference."

-- TNA is selling a set of signed TNA Knockouts photos (The Beautiful People, ODB, Traci Brooks, Roxxi, and SoCal Val) and Knockouts DVD for charity on eBay.

ROBERT: WOOOO THE NEW FLAIR DESIGN ON THE HOME PAGE IS KILLER DAVE. WOOOOOO. THERE ARE GREATS.  THEN THERE ARE HALL OF FAMERS.  BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE RIC FLAIR.   AWESOME JOB DAVE.    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
DAVID ZIGLER: Nick The Frick you hit another home run my friend. Vince McMahon would be a complete Jack Ass if he don't take advantage of Stone Cold wanting the Naitch to induct him into the wwe hall of fame. you guys are right about the ratings, Flair boosted last years HOF ceremony ratings to its highest total and they will probably be high again this year if Flair is allowed to show up. the HOF ceremony will be good anyway but Austin will be a lot happier if Flair is there don't ya think?
AARON: ERIC WE ARE ALL IN FLAIR WITHDRAWAL BUT WE GOTTA BE PATIENT. IT WILL BE WORTH THE WAIT BECAUSE LIKE YOU SAID THE REALITY SHOW IS GONNA BE EXPLOSIVE. WHETHER YOU LIKE RIC FLAIR, OR YOU DON'T LIKE RIC FLAIR, LEARN TO LOVE RIC FLAIR BECAUSE HE IS THE GREATEST WRESTLER THAT WILL EVER LIVE AND STILL THE BEST THING GOING TODAY. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
JT: www.rfgolds.com is the best ric flair website in the world. thank god for you webmaster david "woooo" matthews!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MELANIE: woooo on my way to see and meet the man in late march in the boston area. it's about a 3 hour drive for me which is a long drive but i would drive all the way around the world to meet my man ric wooooo flair. diamonds are forever and so is ric flair woooooooooo
NWA TRADITION RULES: THIS POST IS DEDICATED TO RONNIE OF THE MESSAGE BOARD:::: OH HELL YEAH STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN AND THE NAAATURE BOY RIC FLAIR WILL HOPEFULLY WALK THAT ISLE TOGETHER AT THE HOF BANQUET AND FOREVER BE ENSHRINED IN THE HALL OF FAME. TO HELL WITH HULK HOGAN HE IS A PIECE OF SH#T AND I HOPE AUSTIN REFUSES TO WRESTLE HIM AT WRESTLEMANIA BECAUSE YOU CAN'T TRUST HOAX SLOGAN HE SAYS HE WILL LOSE CLEAN TO AUSTIN BUT WHO IN THE HELL BELIEVES HIM AFTER WHAT HE HAS DONE???? SLOGAN DON'T DESERVE TO BE IN THE SAME RING AS STEVE AUSTIN AND RIC FLAIR. SLOGAN IS PROBABLY JEALOUS BECAUSE AUSTIN'S HERO IS RIC FLAIR AND NOT HIM AND THAT IS WHY AUSTIN WANTS FLAIR TO DO THE HONORS FOR HIM AND NOT SLOGAN. SCREW SLOGAN AND LONG LIVE THE TEXAS RATTLESNAKE AND THE NATURE BOY WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
JAMIE: sammy that jeff jarrett dvd looks like it will be good. we have to give a lot of credit to jarrett because without him there wouldn't be a tna. yes tna is cool but i don't get to watch it every week. i'm still a wwe fan but i must admit that the storylines are lame the last several months but in reality how can you survive the loss of ric flair?? it just don't happen folks!! flair was such a huge part to the show you can't replace him. wwe lost the biggest star ever so you can't expect them to be as good as they once was. it ain't possible.
NATHAN TAYLOR: FLAIR FANS I HEARD ANOTHER RUMOR THAT TNA IS WANTING FLAIR TO WRESTLE AGAIN AFTER HIS NO COMPETE CLAUSE IS OVER LATER THIS YEAR. THEY WANT HIM TO WORK ONE MORE PROGRAM WITH STING BEFORE STING RETIRES. DAMN CAN YOU FANS IMAGINE HOW AWESOME THAT WOULD BE IF FLAIR WRESTLED STING ONE LAST TIME. I AM WOOOING JUST THINKING ABOUT IT. STING VS. FLAIR WAS CLASSICS!!
CHRIS DORTON: I enjoyed seeing the Naitch's opinion on the wrestler movie, i will probably wait till it comes out on dvd to see it but i hear it is good too. Flair gave the movie a Wooooo so it must be good. Webmaster Dave you and Cindy do a great job. keep it up!!!
KYLE: SO FLAIR LIKES THE NEW WRESTLING MOVIE?? IF FLAIR LIKES IT THEN ALL US RASSLIN FANS BETTER WATCH IT CAUSE IT IS PROBABLY GREAT. WOOOOOOOOOOOOO
GREG: Thanks Sammy for your TNA posts, and dude i think it is cool that you like TNA because it beats the crap out of wwe here lately. i read all your posts Sammy so David always put his posts on the board ok?
QUINTEN: Nathan didn't you know that tna has been trying to bring flair in since he had that contract dispute in wwe two years ago, but unfortunately i don't care how much money dixie carter (tna's president) offers him he ain't going there. sorry fans
BRIAN: Hey Flair fans,, ESPN did a interview with Randy Orton a few days ago and they asked him about his feelings for Ric Flair and his responce was great. As most of you fans know Flair molded Randy Orton when he was in Evolution several years ago and Orton is another wrestler who has stated that Flair is the greatest of all time. I copied the question that ESPN asked Orton and it is in this e-mail David so if you don't mind please post it on the messageboard with this e-mail. Thanks David and i wish you continued success with the website.

ESPN: Is traveling on the road with Ric Flair the rock star lifestyle it's made out to be?

Randy Orton's responce -- Oh my god, yeah. Everything is five star with that guy, from the hotels to the wine and champagne. Before I was married, before I was with my wife, I was traveling with Ric Flair and women were everywhere. It was crazy. The lifestyle he leads, he's the wheelin', dealin', kiss-stealin' son of a gun. He's Ric Flair and there's no one like him, there won't ever be another like him in the wrestling world again. No one will match up to Ric Flair and how he lives. He's a great man and a great tutor of the game.


TYLER: in my opinion there is no better place to read comments and posts from Ric Flair fans then on rfgolds message board because it is my favourite place to visit to read TRUE Flair fans feelings on all sorts of Flair issues----other places on the net may have Flair commments but none comes close to rfgolds. David i know you get tired of hearing this but thank you man for taking the time to create the best Flair site of all time. We the fans are very greatful. Thank You!!
SEAN: Does anyone know how i can find out when Ric's son Reid Flair is going to wrestle next? i want to go see him wrestle live and support him in carrying his father's awesome legacy. David i agree with you man when you said that pro wrestling will be better off of Reid Flair is a success. That is true because to have a "Flair" in wrestling for many more years can't be anything but a good thing.
DENNIS: i seen the Naitch on the news yesterday and they were talking about his autograph and photo session appearance in S.C. they said they expected a HUGE crowd in the thousands for the Naitch. WOW Flair is bigger now then he ever was in WWE. I think Flair has proved hands down that he can make it by himself without any help from anybody including the WWE,and also his reality show is going to kick off soon so go get 'em Naitch! Wooooooooooo
ERIK: Flair likes the new wrestling movie (The Wrestler) and so do i.   i seen the movie last night and it is fantastic, i see why Flair enjoyed it, everyone needs to see this movie.
ELI WRIGHT: i didn't think that the wrestler motion picture would be any good but i believe anything the freakin naitch says so i'm going to see it this weekend. once again webmaster great new page added to the site.
PATRICK: Diamonds are Forever and so is Ric "By God" Flair Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
DONNIE: How many of ya'll Flair fans remember when Ric wrestled Barry Windham? They were some of my favorite matches especially the two they had in the mid 80's, i can't remember the name of the event that they wrestled on but i remember two of them especially. Barry was a real good wrestler back then and he was very underrated.
FLAIRROCKS: DOES MOST PEOPLE WANT RIC FLAIR TO GO TO TNA WRESTLING? IT SEEMS LIKE MOST OF THE POSTS I READ INDICATE THAT?
JACOB: FLAIR VS. BARRY WINDHAM WAS GREAT MATCHES  DONNIE ESPECIALLY IN THE 80'S BUT WHEN FLAIR WRESTLED HIM IN '93 THE MATCHES WERE NOT AS GOOD BECAUSE BARRY GOT OUT OF SHAPE AND WAS NOT THE PERFORMER THAT HE WAS IN THE 80'S.BUT WHEN THEY COMPETED AGAINST EACH OTHER IN '86 AND '87 THEY WERE CLASSICS. AND YES WHEN BARRY WAS IN HIS PRIME HE WAS ONE OF THE ALL TIME GREATS.
DARREN: More Big Flair news ladies and gentlemen. EA Sports (Video Game Distributor) announced today that they signed Ric Flair to a contract to be in their upcoming Red Elert 3: Uprising video game, Flair will portray a commander who apparently tells it like it is. I am not into video games anymore but my son is and this will be a game that i will buy and because of Ric Flair i will probably play it more then my son does. lol woooooo
R. BERGMAN: donnie my wife used to love barry windham and when they wrestled back in the 1980's we would argue about who was better  /  back then she was not into Flair like i was but that changed and now Flair is her favorite of all time and she knows that Flair is the absolute best ever. Barry was a fantastic wrestler and i hate he didn't have the career he should have had. some of it was his own fault but you can't say he wouldn't a damn good wrestler because he was. my favorite match they had was the one that is on the Ultimate Flair Collection dvd when they wrestled for 45 minutes right when nwa world wide wrestling came on the air.that match is a classic indeed
TJ: Thanks Brian for posting that about Randy Orton's comments about the champ.I already knew how much respect he had for Flair, if it wouldn't for Flair in evolution then Orton most likely wouldn't be the superstar he is today.
RONN M: IF YOU PEOPLE REMEMBER CORRECTLY THE NIGHT AFTER LAST YEARS WRESTLEMANIA WHEN ALL THE WRESTLERS CAME OUT OF THE LOCKER ROOM AND PAID HOMAGE TO FLAIR DURING HIS EMOTIONAL FAREWELL SEND-OFF I CLEARLY REMEMBER RANDY ORTON GETTING TEARY-EYED SO THAT SAYS IT ALL NOW DON'T IT? AND THINK ABOUT RANDY'S FATHER "COWBOY" BOB ORTON AND HOW FAR HIM AND RIC GO BACK. RANDY KNOWS WHO THE "FN" MAN IS I GUARANTEE YOU THAT!
KEVIN: Ric Flair on a VIDEO GAME??? that should be interesting. "Dennis you said a mouthful" because with all these things going on with Flair right now he sure as hell can make it without wwe. How much money has Flair made since he left wwe anyway??? does anyone know that????
RUSSELL: i think ric flair should have a conversation with vince mcmahon and tell him that he wants to go to tna for a little while just to be doing something different and assure vince that his heart is still with wwe that way ric could go back to wwe at a later date by not burning any bridges. i think right now ric should take reid with him to tna and manage his son cause i think reid could be a huge star in tna, i don't feel the same way about wwe cause i think vince wouldn't push reid like tna would.
SCOTT MATTISON: did you fans here about flair signing a deal to be on a video game?  it was on the news this morning!! he is gonna do promos on the game as some type of commander, that should entertaining as hell!!! wait till i tell my 10 year old nephew about this!!! he loves video games and ric flair!!! whoooo
JOSH: AWESOME NEW KEEPING FIT INTERVIEW WITH RIC WEBMASTER DAVE. -  RIC IS STILL IN GREAT SHAPE AND I BET AT 59 YEARS OLD HE COULD STILL OUTLAST SOME OTHER WRESTLERS WITH HIS AMAZING CARDIOVASCULAR CONDITIONING. HE ALWAYS SPECIALIZED IN CARDIO THAT'S WHY HE COULD GO A HOUR EVERY NIGHT YEAR AFTER YEAR. RFGOLDS SITE RULES!
MICHAEL: Russell i swear man what you said in your post would be GREAT if it took place but there is a small chance it will ever happen, to be honest with you i wish Flair wouldn't so damn loyal to Vince McMahon but he is so whatever it is what it is unfortunately.
VICTOR GOMEZ: "COMMANDER" FLAIR WILL KICK SOME A#S WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

NEIL (RIC FLAIR IS STILL THE MAN) I don't know about you guys and gals but when i read Randy Orton's comments about the Naitch it makes me wish so bad that i could go out on the town with Ric Flair just one time. just one time would be totally amazing wouldn't it? Orton said nobody can match up to how Ric lives. that is a powerful statement , Randy said WOMEN were EVERYWHERE when Ric Flair is around. I swear Flair is the closest thing to ELVIS when it comes to WOMEN that we will ever see. When Flair walks into a place all the beautiful WOMEN are all over him like flies on Sh#t!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ric Flair you are my HERO and i wish i could be with half as many WOMEN as you have been with. Ric Flair is a STUD Woooooooooooooooo
CURT: I like reading all the comments from all the Naitch fans, Flair has more fans then any other wrestler. Diamonds are Forever.. and so is Ric Flair WOOOOOO!
LARRY PHELPS: Thanks again Sammy i watch tna every thursday night. for the most part it is a good show. i still watch wwe too but you fans are right about wwe being not near as good without the nature boy walking the isle looking as only he can look. some of wwe is good but a lot of it is the same old stuff every week but the thing i like about tna is that it is different every week and you never know what is going to happen on their show. between wwe and tna it is close but i give the edge to tna.
RANDY: commander flair?? i like it, my seven year old boy wants the new game that features flair on it but the real question is whether or not my boy is looking more forward to the game or am i ?? i think i am.    i love flair and i am pumped up about him being on a video game. that is cool as hell!!!! woooooooooooooo
ALEX: HA' HA' HA'  LOL LOL Neil i cracked up at your post man LOL i have to agree with your commets it would be the bomb to party with the naitch because there is probably nobody that can throw a party like Ric Flair!!! He ain't no Elvis because no man got chicks as easily as Elvis did but Ric Flair is probably a close 2nd. when i read Neil's post it made me think of a Ric Flair slogan that he said many times and it goes like this.

SPACE MOUNTAIN MAY BE THE OLDEST RIDE IN THE PARK---BUT IT STILL HAS THE LONGEST LINE---WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


MATT: it blows me away what Flair can still do in the gym. the man is a freakin beast when it comes to cardio you guys hit the nail on the head. great new article about flair keeping fit. i enjoyed it.
TRACI: i have loved ric flair for a lot of years and i always will. if it weren't for ric flair i would have never started watching wrestling all them years ago. he is the first man i watched in the ring and cared about every move he made. his charisma and charm won me over and his looks didn't hurt either. david matthews you got the best ric flair site i have ever seen. keep up the good work sweetheart. 
BOBBY: Very Funny Neil!!! Yes we all know that Flair has all the Ladies don't we? He is still the man wooooooooooooooooooo
JEFF C: You said that right Neil the Nature Boy Ric Flair is the one and only original Kiss Stealing Wheeling Dealing Limousine Riding Jet Flying Son of A Gun who has kissed all the girls and made them cry and he has also had all kinds of Gorgeous babes Ride Space Mountain All Night Long. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
DALE (RIC FLAIR NEEDS TO COME TO KENTUCKY) I WISH RIC FLAIR WOULD COME TO KENTUCKY FOR A PHOTO SESSION/AUTOGRAPH SIGNING. HE HAS LOADS OF FANS HERE AND IF HE CAME HERE IT WOULD BE TOTAL CHAOS TO MEET HIM AND HE WOULD HAVE TO SIGN FOR 6 OR 7 HOURS TO GET EVERYBODY'S AUTOGRAPH SIGNED. "HE IS POPULAR AS HELL HERE IN BIG KENTUCKY"
BRYAN: WEBMASTERD DAVID KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK DUDE YOUR SITE FREAKIN RULES JUST LIKE RIC FLAIR WOOOOO
DANNY: Everybody wants Ric Flair to induct them in the Hall of Fame don't they? Stone Cold wants Flair to induct him, Steamboat wants Flair to induct him, WWE wants Flair for Wrestlemania, TNA wants to hire Flair to a contract, Schewells Furniture hired Ric Flair for multiple autograph signings, Coca-Cola has hired Flair, Walmart has hired Flair, Red Alert Video Game has hired Flair, the upcoming Reality Show he has on the table, and there is a potential movie deal also on the table, and his Photo Session/Autograph Signing Tour that he has been on has seen record crowds and garnered him huge amounts of cash. To say that Ric Flair is hot right now would be a understatement. Everybody wants a piece of Ric Flair. I guess diamonds are Forever and so is Ric Flair. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
SHANE "O" MAC: I PRAY THAT RICKY THE DRAGON STEAMBOAT DOES GET PUT INTO THE WWE HALL OF FAME AND IT WAS A NO-BRAINER THAT STEAMBOAT WOULD WANT HIS GOOD FRIEND AND LEGENDARY RIVAL NATURE BOY RIC FLAIR TO BE THE ONE TO INDUCT HIM. THIS IS SHAPING UP TO BE ONE OF THE GREATEST NIGHTS EVER IN PRO WRESTLING. LAST YEAR THE NAITCH AND SHAWN MICHAELS HAD PROBABLY THE MOST TALKED ABOUT MATCH IN THE HISTORY OF WRESTLEMANIA AND THE NIGHT BEFORE FLAIR WAS PUT INTO THE HALL OF FAME IN THE GREATEST HALL OF FAME CEREMONY EVER SEEN EVEN THOUGH IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN RICKY STEAMBOAT WHO INDUCTED FLAIR INSTEAD OF TRIPLE H.

THIS YEAR WILL BE RICKY STEAMBOAT'S MOMENT IN THE SPOTLIGHT AND RIC FLAIR WILL BE THE RIGHT MAN TO INDUCT HIM INTO THE HOF. DAVID IS EXACTLY RIGHT ABOUT STEAMBOAT'S GREATNESS. THE "DRAGON" IS ONE OF THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME AND YES DAVID HE PROBABLY CAN BE MENTIONED AS THE SECOND GREATEST WRESTLER OF ALL TIME BEHIND THE NAITCH OF COURSE.

I THINK ALL THE STEVE AUSTIN FANS WILL UNDERSTAND THAT FLAIR AND STEAMBOAT GO TOGETHER LIKE PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY AND MACARONI AND CHEESE.  IF FLAIR CAN ONLY INDUCT ONE PERSON THEN THAT PERSON HAS TO BE RICKY STEAMBOAT. I WOULD DIG FLAIR INDUCTING AUSTIN AND STEAMBOAT BOTH ON THE SAME NIGHT BUT VINNY MAC WOULDN'T THINK TOO KINDLY OF THAT JUST LIKE DAVID SAID.

I AGREE WITH YOU ALSO DAVID ABOUT THE GREATNESS OF THE FLAIR/STEAMBOAT MATCHES. I AM A HUGE SPORTS FAN AND I WATCH ALL SPORTS FROM RACING, FOOTBALL, BASEBALL, BASKETBALL, TENNIS, UFC, AND MANY MORE BUT NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I WITNESSED A MORE LEGENDARY FEUD AND A MORE PERFECT SPORTS ENCOUNTER THEN RIC FLAIR VS. RICKY STEAMBOAT. THEIR MATCHES IN 1989 SET THE STANDARD OF PERFECTION OF A ONE ON ONE ENCOUNTER BETWEEN TWO AMAZING AND TALENTED ATHLETES THAT BROUGHT OUT THE BEST OF EACH OTHER.

SORRY DAVID FOR THIS LONG E-MAIL BUT PLEASE POST IT ON YOUR MESSAGE BOARD. I READ THE BOARD ALL THE TIME AND YOU DO A PERFECT JOB ON THE SITE. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND CONGRATS TO RICKY STEAMBOAT ON THE HOF INDUCTION ANNOUNCEMENT AND I WILL BE WATCHING THIS AMAZING CHAPTER CONTINUE ON THE NIGHT OF THE CEREMONY BETWEEN THE TWO GREATEST PERFORMERS EVER IN PRO WRESTLING. FLAIR AND STEAMBOAT WILL FOREVER RULE THE SPORTS WORLD. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


COLT: great news about flair being at wrestlemania, i wouldn't going to order it but me and several of my buddies will get together and order the ppv if flair will be on the show. if flair will be there then we will order it.
FREDDIE: Awesome WrestleMania article webmaster Dave. i hope that steamboat gets inducted this year because that will be special to see Ric induct him. Can you imagine the emotions that Flair and Steamboat will have that night? Flair is very emotional as everyone knows and Steamboat showed some emotions last year when he and Flair hugged each other on Flair's tribute night.The hall of fame ceremony will be another emotional night.  " not as much as last year but it will still be emotional. last year Ric Flair stole the show and this year it will be Flair and Steamboat together stealing the show. i am ready to see it.
LANCE: RIC FLAIR AND RICKY STEAMBOAT'S BATTLES FROM 1989 IS THE BEST MATCHES I HAVE EVER WITNESSED. NUFF SAID!!!!!!!
SETH PAXON: WOW i thought that wrestlemania weekend couldn't get any more exciting with Flair inducting Steve Austin to the hof but with this latest news on Flair inducting Steamboat instead has even got me more excited. I don't blame Vince Mcmahon for changing it from Flair inducting Austin to inducting Steamboat. if my house was burning down i wouldn't miss this hof induction ceremony!!!
ERNIE: Enjoyed the new page David. your site is excellent dude
MARIE: Woooo I love the Naitch and he is the man. wrestlemania just got a lot better with the addition of the Nature Boy. it is going to be great to see him walk the isle one more time at wrestlemania Woooooooooooooooooo
TIMOTHY: Whether you like it or you don't like it. Learn to love it because it is the best thing goin today baby!! Wooo Woooo Wooooooooooo
DENNIS: DAVE HOW MANY PAGES DO YOU HAVE ON YOUR NAVIGATION?? I DIDN'T COUNT THEM BUT IT MUST BE A SH#T LOAD. I WONDER HOW LONG IT WOULD TAKE SOMEONE TO VISIT ALL THE PAGES ON YOUR SITE?? A WEEK OR MORE? LOL. WHO KNOWS. FANTASTIC JOB! I VISIT IT ALL THE TIME.
GREG: David i hope that Flair inducts Steamboat into the hof instead of Austin. No offence to Austin but Steamboat deserves to have Flair induct him more >> i read Shane "O" Mac's post and i liked it and it is good to see him back on the message board, i remember reading his posts on the guestbook, hey David where is Paul Westbrook been lately?  he used to sign a lot but i hadn't heard from him in a while, does he still get on your site? i used to enjoy reading his posts too. I like reading Nick The Frick's posts too. i purchased the Starrcade dvd set and the Flair extras on the dvd that is never before seen is great. great to see David Crockett and Ric Flair together again after 20 years. nothing will ever top the starrcade events.
PAUL WESTBROOK: Hello to the Fanatics, and to Greg who so graciously asked about my whereabouts. Ive been busy working on a show Im in, which is why I havent been on much. Wanted you to know that I recently got three good matches of Ric Flair's that I would like to get your opinions on. Ric Flair vs Billy Jack Haynes from the Charlotte Coliseum for the NWA title, Ric Flair vs El Matador Tito Santana from 93 on Monday Night RAW, and Ric Flair vs David Flair from Great American Bash 2000. Also want you all to know I miss being there on the board with you and hope to, on a regular basis again soon.
SAMMY: Hey fans I'm back with my weekly TNA Impact preview, this week is going to be excellent with the Japanese legend The Great Muta and the wrestling return of the beautiful people and Samoa Joe, and later this week i will send a preview of the TNA ppv "Against All Odds"

RICHARD: Very well said Danny, Flair is more popular now then at any time in his career.
TIM B: I am so damn happy right now i can't contain myself because RIC FLAIR IS COMING BACK TO RAW NEXT MONDAY NIGHT. OH HELL YEAH WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
CALVIN: I am sure there are a lot of people who were not watching wwe raw tonight but you better get your candy asses to watch next weeks show because the "fn" man is coming back to monday night raw. Finally a reason to watch that show!!!
KURT DANIELS: Woooo my 7 year old cousin called me on the phone 15 minutes ago to tell me that The Nature Boy is gonna walk that isle and be on raw next week. he loves Ric Flair and when he told me the news i started strutting around the kitchen and my wife was laughing at me. i told her that next week she will have to take a backseat because next monday is Ric Flair night. Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
RIDGE: I HAVEN'T WATCHED RAW IN MONTHS BUT I GUARANTEE YOU I WILL BE WATCHING NEXT MONDAY NITE WHEN THE GREATEST WRESTLER TO EVER LACE UP A PAIR OF WRESTLING BOOTS WILL BE BACK.
D ROBINSON: shane you got it right buddy. nothing will ever be as smooth and graceful as flair vs. steamboat. flair is the one who recognized the talent that steamboat had in the mid atlantic area in the late 70's and flair is also the one who lobbied for steamboat to finally win the world title in 1989. the hof ceremony will be a very important night.
JOHN: Paul what year was the Flair and Billy Jack Haynes match? i don't remember that one and where did you get it from? i remember the Tito Santana match from raw in '93 i think that was right before he went back to wcw wouldn't it?? and i didn't care much for the Flair vs. Flair father vs. son match in 2000. Greg  i too remember some of the people's names that signed the guestbook and Paul was one of them along with others. Shane O Mac was your post long enough? your breakdown of the Steamboat Flair rivalry was really good but really long. just kidding with you
ADAM (JERICHO IS IN SERIOUS TROUBLE) Chris Jericho has a big mouth talking trash about Ric Flair, I wonder if he can back that big mouth up next week when Ric Flair is looking him right in the face?? I doubt he can!!! I hope Ric Flair chops the hell out of Jericho!! I can't wait till next monday. Jericho your A#S will belong to the Nature Boy!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
MICHAEL LANE: Just wanted to say that I love the Flair website and I am looking forward to meeting him for the first time when he comes through for a couple of independent shows here in NC. He is a true hero to me and I believe you are doing a great job keeping him name and legacy out there. Keep up the good work.
Michael Lane,John 3:16
BRUCE COLVERT: FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY A REASON TO WATCH WWE RAW NEXT MONDAY, I HAVE NOT BEEN A BIG WWE FAN RECENTLY BUT I WILL BE NEXT WEEK - THANK YOU VINCE MCMAHON FOR HAVING SOME BRAIN CELLS AND PUTTING THE LEGEND THAT EVERYBODY WANTS TO SEE ON YOUR SHOW. I AM READY TO SEE "THE MAN" WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
WALLY: The Real World's Heavyweight Champion is Back!!!! It is about time!!! Whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
PAUL WESTBROOK: Hello again Fanatics. For the person that asked the Ric Flair vs Billy Jack Haynes match was from either 1982 or 1984 at the Charlotte Coliseum. And what are your thoughts on the return (1 shot deal mind you) of Nature Boy Ric Flair? Details folks. 
TJ: Sammy i will be looking forward to this weeks tna.thanks for the update, glad that Samoa Joe is coming back and the beautiful people are very attractive, it will be good to see the great muta too but what i am most excited about is the return of the greatest world champion the industry has ever seen. the biggest star ever and the best wrestler of all time Slick Ric Flair.that is what i want to see most of all. you guys are correct raw will be worth watching this week.
DAVID CULLER: WOOOO THE KING OF WRESTLING RETURNS TO RAW NEXT WEEK. YES I KNOW IT WILL PROBABLY ONLY BE FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY BUT THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT AT LEAST WE GET TO SEE HIM, AND HE WILL BE AT THE HOF CEREMONY INDUCTING STEAMBOAT AND HE WILL BE AT WRESTLEMANIA SO WE GOT A LOT TO BE THANKFUL FOR IF YOU ASK ME
RICKY G: Ric Flair will be back on next week's show and Chris Jericho will be pissing in his pants. Can i hear a chop and a Woooo?   I can already see a beat red mark on Chris Jericho's chest courtesy of the Naaaature Boy Ric Flair. a chop and a Wooo, a chop and a Wooo, a chop and a Wooo, a chop and a Woooo
ERIC: David thanks dude for the news on Flair returning. i missed raw last night and didn't know anything about the big news until i got on your site today. I think your site is so cool.
DALE: Raw is going to kick a#s next monday nite and we all know why don't we? WOOO WOOO WOOO
RAFAEL MULIEY: ric flair is the man, wonder what kind of pop (crowd reaction) he is going to get next week when he walks out. i think the roof will explode and fall completely off the arena.
JAMES: Paul i hope Flair will be back for more then one night, who knows what will happen we will have to wait and see.
TED Q: I think i might know the real reason McMahon is bringing Flair back to Raw next week. i read a article today about how the tickets for this years Wrestlemania ain't sold out so far, I know it's wrestlemania and usually they sell out and they probably will eventually this year but they are usually sold out within days of when tickets go on sale but this year it hadn't happened so far. Tickets for the big event went on sale several weeks ago. Last year for Flair's retirement match tickets for Wrestlemania sold out immediately so what's the problem this year? now you catch my drift?? enter Ric Flair to save the freakin day AGAIN like he has done for year after year.I am not even a huge Flair fan and even i know what Vince is up to here, he knows that Flair sells tickets and brings in ratings and it wouldn't surprise me if McMahon tries to talk Flair into coming out of retirement for one more match.
DEREK: The bottom line is that if you are a true Ric Flair fan then you will support any decision he makes about his future. seriously i don't think he will ever wrestle again but if he does then so be it i support him because i am a true fan.

TRACE BISHOP: You Damn straight Rafael!!! Raw is in California i think which is up north and not Flair Country but you listen to the Pop he gets. California is not Charlotte but i bet he gets the biggest pop of the night. Guaranteed!!!
JAY: THE CHAMP IS COMING BACK!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
ALAN: i don't think flair's return to raw will be a one shot deal but i don't think he will wrestle at wrestlemania either, i think he is going to show up a few times on raw in the weeks leading up to mania to tease whatever he will do at the ppv.
RIC FLAIR GO TO TNA: DAVID PUT "RIC FLAIR GO TO TNA" IN THE NAME SECTION OF MY POST. HERE IS MY MESSAGE: AFTER RIC COMES TO RAW NEXT MONDAY///// AND INDUCTS STEAMBOAT IN THE HOF CEREMONY IN APRIL AND AFTER HE APPEARS AT WRESTLEMANIA I HOPE LIKE HELL HE GOES TO TNA. RIC SOMETIME AFTER APRIL GO TO TNA AND HAVE ANOTHER CLASSIC WITH THE "STINGER"
DONNIE: I want Ric Flair vs. Chris Jericho at Wrestlemania!!! That would be Awesome!!!! Wooooooooooooooooooooo
CHRISTOPHER: WOOOO i just heard today that Ric Flair has made a deal with Donruss Card Company to produce a certified autographed card of Flair. That should be a true collectors item. WOOOOO
NICKY: good point derek, look at flair; he is in great shape to be almost 60, and didn't he say in a recent interview that he feels like a million bucks physically. most of the other legends flair's age is falling apart with injuries or other things but not flair. i don't give a sh#t what anybody says because i know that even at flair's age he could still wrestle a light schedule and be very competitive. i admit that i wouldn't say that about anyone else who has been in the biz as long as flair has but i will say it about ric because ric is different. ric is like a freak of nature and he has lived his whole life for the biz, he has wrestling in his heart and soul and i know that he could still wrestle once in a while and still put on a great show, truth be told at 59 he is still a better wrestler then most of the guys half his age and that is the truth.
QUINTEN: no it probably won't happen but i would enjoy seeing the Naitch take Jericho to school Nature Boy style at Wrestlemania.
JIMMY: THIS MONDAY NIGHT ON RAW IS GOING TO BE THE BOMB!! WOOOOO!!
MATT JENKINS: I predict that Kurt Angle and the M.E.M. (Main Event Mafia) will turn on Sting at against all odds and Angle will walk out of the ppv with the tna world title. i know that don't have anything to do with Ric Flair but i love tna nonetheless. Sammy i like your tna updates that you do on the message board. wooooooooooo
STEVEN J: Flair will not wrestle Jericho at wrestlemania but i think he will probably be in Micky Rourke's corner as Rourke wrestles Jericho. Rourke and Vince Mcmahon has been talking about him wrestling for one night at Mania and i think Flair will be in Rourke's corner. that is what i think will happen at Mania.
JC: i don't think we should care what Flair does this monday night as long as we get to witness his greatness then does it really matter? I bet he does cut a hell of a promo though and if Jericho comes out there to bother him he will get chopped.
BRETT STONE: I HAVE NOT TUNED IN TO WWE RAW IN ABOUT 6 MONTHS BUT SINCE FLAIR IS SCHEDULED TO BE ON THE SHOW THIS MONDAY NIGHT THEN I'M GOING TO GIVE IT A LOOK. WHEN FLAIR RETIRED I LOST INTEREST, NO OFFENCE TO THE OTHER WRESTLERS BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE FLAIR.
C. SANDBERG I hope Ric wrestles at least one more match and i think a bout between him and Jericho at wrestlemania would be a good match, flair don't need wwe but wwe needs flair.
ANDREW: As GREAT as it would be if Ric Flair came back for one more match it is not going to happen. Don't mistaken me i would love to see it and i am sure that he could still pull it off and put on a better performance then anybody else,,,that is not the issue,,,something tells me he will not do it.
DAVEY: derek made a good point!! if you support flair then you will support him whatever decision he makes. thanks for pointing that out derek.
PAUL HENDERSON: I understand a Flair fans point of view that thinks that he shouldn't wrestle again but for god's sake if Flair does decide to step back in the ring it shouldn't be that big of deal because Flair at his age is still more talented then the entire wwe roster, age is just a number when it comes to the Naitch we all know that!!and lets be honest Flair is much too in demand elsewhere to wrestle a heavy schedule for wwe,the man is busy as hell ain't he?? he has his autograph signing and photo sessions that he's doing everywhere.He has a upcoming reality show that it being planned out.He is on a upcoming Video game.He recently signed a deal with Coke. He recently signed a deal with Walmart. He recently signed a trading card deal with Baseball card company Donruss,which will see Flair get his very own Autographed Ric Flair Trading Card. You would be a Fool to think that Ric Flair has time to commit to a wrestling schedule with wwe. I would like to see him wrestle Chris Jericho at Wrestlemania but it is highly unlikely.
CHAD: What a night it will be the night before wrestlemania when the Greatest Professional Wrestler of all Time (Ric Flair) inducts one of the all time greats (Ricky the Dragon Steamboat) into the wwe hall of fame! I am 44 years old and I remember in the late 70's when Flair told the nwa booker (George Scott) at the time that (this Steamboat kid had what it takes to be a star) and that he wanted to work with him and boy did they work together.  

Some wrestling fans fail to realize that Flair and Steamboat had some classic matches in '78 and '79 way before the most memorable matches of 1989.They battled in the late 70's and in '84 right before steamboat made the mistake of going to the wwf and they worked together in 1989 in the best wrestling bouts this country has ever seen and their last feud was in '94 right before steambaot retired. I congratulate Ricky Steamboat for this accomplishment that is long overdue, it will be a very emotional night for "The Dragon" and "The Naitch"

I wouldn't be surprised if Flair gets more emotional then Steamboat does even though Steamboat is the one getting inducted. Flair as we know is very emotional and wear's his heart on his sleeve. The moment that Flair inducts Ricky Steamboat will be one of the most awesome moments ever in pro wrestling. I can't wait. Wooooo!!


GREGORY: Webmaster Dave you got the best Ric Flair site that i have ever seen. It is killer!!!!  keep up the good work! wooooooooooooo
TRAVIS: HOW DOES IT FEEL FLAIR FANATICS TO KNOW THAT IN 2009 AFTER 37 YEARS ASSOCIATED IN THE SPORT THAT "NATURE BOY" RIC FLAIR HAS THE WRESTLING WORLD IN THE PALM OF HIS HANDS?????  AGAIN!!!  EVERY WRESTLING FAN I TALK TO IS WONDERING WHAT FLAIR IS GOING TO SAY AND DO MONDAY NIGHT ON RAW. IN 2009 RIC FLAIR IS THE HOTTEST PROPERTY IN PRO WRESTLING AND I LOVE IT!!! RAW IS TWO DAYS AWAY!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
MELANIE (FLAIR) I am soooo excited  about Ric coming back this monday even though it will probably be for one night. Me and my husband quit watching wrestling since he left because without Ric Flair it didn't appeal to us anymore but now that he is returing we are interested again. It will be such a joy  to see him on Raw again. I am ready for Monday night Woooooooooooooooooooooooooo
SHANIA: David thank you for returning my e-mail answering my question even though It took you a few days.lol! I have told you 1,000 times how great and respectful your Flair site Is and I mean that. I have told a lot people about your site and I would be very sad if something ever happened to your site like you taking it down or anything like that. You told me that would never happened and thank god for that. Talk to you soon and tell all the Flair fans on the message board that I love reading their posts and that Ric Flair Is the (I wish he was my) man!! woooooooooooooooooooooo
DONNIE WALSH: "Monday night Ric Flair is gonna kick chris jericho's A#S" Woooooo Wooooooooooooooooooooo
GAVIN: Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat is also my favourite matches of all time and they are the greatest matches of all time too.
FREDDIE: Diamonds are Forever and Chris Jericho will find out so is Ric Flair!!!!!!!!!!
KYLE:RIC FLAIR SHOULD COME BACK AND WRESTLE A PART TIME SCHEDULE FOR WWE BUT HE WOULD BE A IDIOT TO SIGN A CONTRACT WITH THEM. VINCE MCMAHON TRIES TO SMOTHER HIS WRESTLERS AND FLAIR IS AT A PLACE IN HIS LIFE THAT HE DON'T HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THAT.

I WANNA SEE THE NAITCH WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TRACY: Business is about to pick up with the return of Nature Boy Ric Flair.This weeks Raw is going to be the bomb!!! Woooo
SAMMY: Hey Fans I watched the TNA ppv tonight and it was a good ppv, not as good as the Genesis ppv but still a good ppv. Thanks David and please post this e-mail on the board as usual. I hope everyone is ready to witness the return of Flair tomorrow night. I know I am.

GUS: I usually watch "Hereos" on Monday night's at nine o'clock but not this week. I will not miss the return of the man!! whoooooooooo!!
DAVE STONE: TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR. WOOOOO THE RETURN OF THE MAN. WOOOOOO GO GET 'EM RIC AND STYLE WOOOOO AND PROFILE WOOOOOOOOOO!
BRUCE: Has everyone got their Popcorn ready????? I will have my popcorn ready to see the champ live on raw!!! Wooo!
TOMMY: I am deadly serious Flair fanatics i have not watched one second of Raw since Ric left last summer, so tonight when Ric returns will be the first time i have watched it in about 8 months.
KENNETH: Absolutely Awesome to see the Naitch walk the isle again on raw tonight. It was great but the only thing that hurt the segment was that Jericho came out too soon and they didn't let Ric talk enough. I believe Ric made up for that though didn't he??  Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
MITCH D: I hope Flair wouldn't on Raw except for the first segment because after he punched Jericho's lights out i turned the channel. I am not a fan of today's wrestling and the only reason i watched the first segment is because of Flair.
KYLE: LOL I was laughing my A#S off at Chris Jericho tonight when he was talking trash to Ric because he sounded so damn stupid. LOL. i know wrestling is scripted but the stuff he was saying was so insane i couldn't contain myself. what really made me laugh is when he was talking down to Flair about him doing his autograph signings when the truth of the matter is that Flair has made more money signing autographs the last several months then Jericho has wrestling a full schedule and that is a fact boys and girls. LOL. and for heaven's sake i don't even have to mention all the other activities that Flair's got on his plate that is bringing him loads of money. it ain't all Jericho's fault i really think Vince Mcmahon should have gave Jericho a better script to work with because the one he gave him tonight was more like a damn comedy. LOL
MARK LUFFMAN: Flair was great tonight and Jericho played a good "bad guy" but his reasons for "supposedly" all of a sudden not respecting Ric are pretty weak if you ask me. i watched the skit between them twice and i still couldn't understand exactly what Jericho was saying.
DEREK: AFTER WATCHING TONIGHT'S PROMO BETWEEN RIC FLAIR AND CHRIS JERICHO IT LEFT ME WONDERING WHAT'S GOING ON AND WHY VINCE MCMAHON HAD RIC FLAIR FLY FROM HIS HOME IN CHARLOTTE ALL THE WAY TO CALIFORNIA TO DO THE PROMO. OF COURSE I'M AM GLAD RIC WAS THERE AND GREAT TOO SEE HIM BUT SOMETHING STINKS HERE. I THINK MCMAHON MIGHT BE TRYING TO TALK RIC INTO COMING OUT OF RETIREMENT AND WRESTLING AGAIN. I CAN'T HELP BUT THINK THAT.
MICHAEL: hey jericho how does your jaw feel?? woooooo don't mess with the nature boy woooooooooooooooooooooo
DENNIS: I hope that tonights storyline leads to Ric Flair coming out of retirement to wrestle Chris Jericho at wrestlemania. it probably won't occur but i can still hope.
DIAMOND DAN: Tonights promo by Y2J Chris Jericho was not believable because last year i listened to a interview online with Jericho and he said that he has more respect for Ric Flair then any other wrestler in history, and he said that Flair is the best wrestler ever and that Ric was his idol. they should have got someone else to play Jericho's role

 

 

 

BRIAN (RIC FLAIR EQUALS RATINGS) DAVID THIS E-MAIL WILL PROBABLY BE LONG BUT PLEASE POST IT ON THE "FLAIR FANS MESSAGE BOARD" FOR ME . I HOPE EVERYONE ENJOYED RIC FLAIR'S RETURN TO RAW LAST WEEK. I WANT TO SHARE SOME NEWS WITH YOU FANS THAT YOU MAY NOT BE AWARE OF. IT IS ABOUT RIC FLAIR'S RATINGS POWER. I AM NOT SURE THAT MANY PEOPLE ARE AWARE THAT THE NIELSEN RATINGS FOR WWE RAW ARE DONE IN "QUARTER HOUR INTERVALS" AND NOT JUST ONE FINAL NUMBER THAT YOU ALWAYS SEE. TO BETTER EXPLAIN THIS IT MEANS THAT IN ONE HOUR THERE ARE FOUR 15 MINUTE INTERVALS AND FOR A TWO HOUR PROGRAM SUCH AS "RAW" THERE ARE 8 QUARTER HOUR INTERVALS.KEEP THIS IN MIND AS I EXPLAIN WHAT TOOK PLACE ON RAW BETWEEN FLAIR AND JERICHO.

LAST WEEK ON RAW THE FIRST SEGMENT WAS THE ANGLE BETWEEN RIC FLAIR AND CHRIS JERICHO. AS RAW STARTED RIC FLAIR CAME OUT AND DID A PROMO UNTIL JERICHO CAME OUT AND THEY BOTH HAD A VERBAL EXCHANGE THAT LASTED ABOUT 12 MINUTES. THE SEGMENT STARTED AT 9:01 AND LASTED UNTIL 9:13 P.M. SO FLAIR AND JERICHO'S INTERVAL WOULD BE COUNTED IN THE 9:00 TO 9:15 P.M. "QUARTER HOUR" SEGMENT. RAW'S FINAL NUMBER DREW A 3.4 WHICH IS NOT A GREAT NUMBER BUT THAT NUMBER DOES NOTHING TO EXPLAIN THE NUMBER THAT RIC FLAIR DREW BECAUSE IT ADDS UP ALL 8 "QUARTER HOURS" AND AVERAGES ALL OF THEM OUT.

THE REAL NUMBERS ARE IN THE "QUARTER HOUR INTERVALS" AND THE NUMBER THAT RIC FLAIR DREW IN THE 9:00 TO 9:15 TIME SLOT WAS A IMPRESSIVE 4.2 WHICH WAS NOT ONLY THE HIGHEST "QUARTER HOUR RATING" ON THE SHOW BUT IT WAS ALSO THE HIGHEST QUARTER HOUR RATING" ON RAW IN OVER 6 MONTHS. THE REASON THE FINAL NUMBER ONLY DREW A 3.4 IS BECAUSE OF THE WEAK "QUARTER HOUR INTERVALS" OF THE OTHER SEGMENTS ON THE SHOW WHICH BROUGHT THE FINAL NUMBER DOWN.

FOR EXAMPLE THE MATCH BETWEEN CODY RHODES/TED DIBIASE VS. CRYME TYME ONLY DREW A 3.0, AND THE 6 MAN MATCH BETWEEN JERICHO,KANE AND MIKE KNOX VS. CENA,MYSTERIO AND KOFI KINGSTON ONLY DREW A 3.3. THE CM PUNK VS. WILLIAM REGAL MATCH ONLY DREW A 3.1 AND THE MAIN EVENT BETWEEN THE UNDERTAKER AND RANDY ORTON DREW A 3.8 WHICH WAS THE 2ND HIGHEST SEGMENT ON THE SHOW BUT THE HIGHEST RATED SEGMENT ON THE ENTIRE SHOW WAS LED BY THE RETURN OF RIC FLAIR AND THE INVOLVEMENT OF CHRIC JERICHO.

400,000 MORE PEOPLE WATCHED FLAIR THE THEY DID THE MAIN EVENT. I WOULD GIVE JERICHO MORE CREDIT FOR SOME OF THE RATING BUT THE 6 MAN MATCH THAT INVOLVED HIM LATER IN THE NIGHT ONLY DREW A 3.3 SO OBVIOUSLY MORE OF THE CREDIT FOR THE RATING "IF NOT ALL OF IT" GOES TO RIC FLAIR. JOHN CENA IS ALWAYS NEAR THE TOP OF THE "QUARTER HOUR RATINGS" BUT I THINK THE REASON HIS 6 MAN MATCH DID SO POOR IN THE RATINGS IS BECAUSE FANS FOR THE MOST PART DON'T CARE FOR 6 MAN MATCHES.

WHAT THIS SHOWS IS ALMOST ALL THE TIME WHEN IT COMES TO "RATINGS" NO MATTER WHAT HIS AGE IS "RIC FLAIR IS THE GUY THAT GETS THE JOB DONE"  NUMBERS DON'T LIE AND IN WCW DURING THE NITRO VS. RAW RATINGS WAR'S OF THE 90'S IT WAS THE NATURE BOY THAT CONSISTENTLY HAD THE HIGHEST RATED "QUARTER HOUR SEGMENTS" ON THE SHOW AND THAT WAS AT THE SAME TIME HE WAS BEING BURIED BY THE POLITICS OF BISCHOFF AND HOGAN.

I HOPE THE PEOPLE THAT NEVER REALLY UNDERSTOOD HOW THE RATINGS WORK NOW UNDERSTAND THEM. DAVID I APOLOGIZE FOR THE LONG E-MAIL BUT PLEASE POST THIS E-MAIL ON YOUR MESSAGE BOARD. THANKS MAN FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO FOR RIC FLAIR.


DEREK: diamonds are forever and so is ric flair wooooooooooooooooooooo


JAMES: Wooooo i read a article that was printed in my local paper talking about Flair's most recent accomplishments with his signing with Walmart and Coke and the Video Game he will be in. I think Flair is doing VERY WELL without having a contract signed with wwe. NO DOUBT Flair is making more money then he was with wwe. Wooooo


WALLY: I think Flair should wrestle again, i don't think he will but no doubt in my mind that he can still style and profile in the ring. he will always be the man.


MELISSA: I love  the new background on the home page, it is awesome just like Ric Flair. I love the Nature Boy!!! Woooooooooooo


TRISH STIMPSON: i was going to buy the red alert game for my son for christmas but it didn't have Ric Flair on it, is Ric going to be on the one that's coming out in the future or what? they are several of the Red Alert games on the market but my son wants the one that has Ric Flair on it. can anyone help me???


RICHARD: RIC WAS KILLER ON THE PROMO AGAINST JERICHO LAST MONDAY NITE. I AGREE THEY SHOULD HAVE LET RIC TALK LONGER BEFORE JERICHO CAME OUT BUT IT STILL ENDED UP GOOD. FLAIR STILL HAS MORE CHARISMA THEN ANYONE ELSE. THE EXPRESSIONS ON HIS FACE ARE GREAT. NOBODY CAN TOUCH HIM.


JAMIE: Mirror Mirror on the Wall, Who Is the Greatest of them all. It Is the Nature Boy Ric Flair That's Who!!!! Wooooooooooooooooooooo


WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: Hello everyone, sorry for the delay in getting the posts on the board as i have been away from home a lot in the last several days................I apparantly lost some of my messages so sorry to the ones who's e-mails i didn't get posted. ...........There will be some important updates on the site in the next few days so stay tuned.................. Thanks for the continued support.


FRANK: brian don't apologize dude for the long post i enjoyed reading it, yes i have heard of the quarter ratings you discussed and yes ric flair ain't responsible for everybody else's quarter hour rating. a 4.2 he got is a very powerful number but like you said the final number don't reveal that. can you imagine the final number raw would have got if not for the flair jericho promo?? it wouldn't have been a 3.4 it would have probably been a 2.9 or 3.0 so thanks to Flair the number was as high as it was. right???


KYLE: INTERESTING BRIAN. I KNEW ABOUT THE RATINGS IN QUARTER HOUR INTERVALS BUT I NEVER REALLY UNDERSTOOD THEM BUT THANKS TO BRIAN I NOW UNDERSTAND THEM. SO WHAT HAPPENED WAS FROM 9 TO 9:15 LAST MONDAY FLAIR'S QUARTER HOUR RATING WAS A 4.2 WHICH TRANSLATES TO FOUR MILLION TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND PEOPLE WATCHED THAT 15 MINUTE FLAIR SEGMENT, BUT WHAT'S SAD IS THAT WHEN CRIME TIME TOOK ON DIBIASE AND RHODES IN THEIR TAG TEAM MATCH IT ONLY GOT A 3.0!! YIKES THAT IS SCARY TO SAY THE LEAST. THAT IS ALMOST A MILLION AND A HALF LESS VIEWERS THAT WATCHED THAT MATCH THEN VIEWED THE FLAIR PROMO. NO WONDER THE FREAKIN OVERALL RATING WAS A 3.4. THAT WOULDN'T FLAIR'S FAULT. TRUTH IS VINCE MCMAHON SHOULD HAVE KISSED RIC FLAIR'S ASS WHEN HE SEEN THE RATING RIC GOT.


NICKY: I know all about them type of ratings brian you didn't tell me nothing i didn't already know. ain't it something how a 59 year old man can get higher ratings then all the 25 to 40 year olds?? my lord ric flair got more ratings then randy orton, john cena and all them young guys. i think this proves that ric flair does equal ratings!! woooooooooooooooooo


CHRIS NEWMAN: Now i see why Vinny Mac is trying to get Flair to come back to wwe full time. he knows that if Flair is on the program every week more people will tune in.Maybe Ric should change his name from the "Nature Boy" Ric Flair to the "Ratings Champ" Ric Flair.


MIKE H: i got a idea for vince mcmahon, out of the 8 quarter hour segments that are on a raw broadcast maybe he should let Ric be in 5 of them that way the 5 that ric is on will draw very high numbers so much that the other 3 that are low won't affect the final number. wouldn't that work?


RENAE: Wooooo I'm a 34 year old from Flair country in N.C. and i'm totally in LOVE with the new Valentine Flair videos. Ric Flair is Custom made like he said along with being a COMPLETE STUD and i would give anything in my life to find out how "ALL NIGHT LONG" he really is. I would be his slave if he wanted me too. anything to ride the ultimate ride SPACE MOUNTAIN ALL NIGHT LONG. RIC FLAIR IS MY ALL TIME FANTASY WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


TIM COLLINS: i like the home page webmaster dave it is cool,and the flair videos are funny as sh#t.that is what i like about flair,he is the best ever in the ring,he is funny as sh#t and he can even be serious, he can do it all,the ferocious valentine video was my favourite. lol naitch!!


ROGER K: Flair got a 4.2 rating huh?? should that surprise anybody?? he has been dominating the ratings for years ain't he?? that's what i thought!!


PHILLIP WALLACE: WOW!!! BRIAN THAT INFO PISSES ME OFF  BECAUSE FLAIR IS RECEIVING A 4.2 RATING TO DO ALL HE CAN TO MAKE THE RATINGS AS HIGH AS HE POSSIBLY CAN AND ALL THE OTHER FREAKING MORONS ON THE WWE ROSTER CAN'T EVEN GET A RATING WITHIN 400,000 VIEWERS OF FLAIR'S NUMBER. WHAT THE HELL IS THAT ABOUT? WHOEVER SAID THAT VINCE SHOULD KISS FLAIR'S BACKSIDE IS EXACTLY RIGHT. I LIKE OTHER WRESTLERS BESIDES FLAIR BUT MY GOD ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. COME ON GUYS DO YOUR PART AND QUIT DEPENDING ON FLAIR TO BAIL YOU OUT EVERY DAMN TIME.


JEFF AIDMAN: brian i had no clue that was how they determined a rating i really didn't. thanks man for explaining that. quarter hour ratings is what you pay attention to right?


ANTHONY AND PAMELA: Hey David my wife loved the Valentine's day Flair video, i thought it was hilarious but she watched it so many times i accused her of cheating on me with a Ric Flair video. lol just kidding but for real my wife would divorce me in a heartbeat if she could get with Ric Flair. and i ain't kidding about that

FLAIRRULES: RIC FLAIR PLEASE PLEASE GO TO TNA. WWE SUCKS AND YOU WILL GET TREATED BETTER IF YOU GO TO TNA. TNA FREAKING RULES!!! STING VS. THE NAITCH ONE MORE TIME, WOOOO ONE MORE TIME STING VS. THE NAITCH WOOOOOOOOOOOOO


CHAD: MEAN WOOOO "BY GOD" GENE: WOOOOO  "WE ARE IN CHARLOTTE WOOOOOO NORTH CAROLINA WOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


RANDY: i bet flair is gonna kick some ass as he portrays "commander hill" in the red alert game! it should be awesome. wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo


PAUL WESTBROOK: Hi Fanatics. How've you all been? I miss talking with you all and hope there are a few that feel likewise about me. RAW wasnt as good this week apparently as it was last week, and I too feel Ric's presence not being there is what made the show horrible. Also wanted to let you know that on a WWE 24/7 video Im receiving from a friend soon it has a match you all might be interested in. Ric Flair vs Kevin Von Erich from the WWCW promotion. Your thoughts?


ERIC W: Webmaster Dave your site is the best site ever and Flair is the best ever in the ring.the new Flair video page on the site is cool man. keep up the good work!! woooooooooooooooo

TERRY (NUMBERS DON'T LIE) I am a Flair fan but he is not my favourite wrestler of all time. My favourite wrestler ever is Dusty Rhodes the American Dream.Even though the Nature Boy is not my favourite of all time i have to admit that the 4.2 Rating he received for the promo he did with Jericho on Raw last week proves 100% that Flair is still the man.How can you argue against the numbers?? Like i said he is not my favourite ever but the numbers tell the truth!!! Ric has been retired for almost a full year and his numbers are HIGHER then all the young guns in their prime. That speaks volumes to me!!!

TJ: Hey Renae LOFL lady!! LOFL!! i understand your love for Ric but lady you will never get Ric Flair to care about you much less ride space mountain so keep dreaming!! LOFL!!

JACOB: I got a question Flair fanatics.what is everyone's favorite Flair video of the ones he has done to promote the new video game he is in??  i like them all but i agree with Tim the Flair ferocious valentine is the best one i think. i fell out of my chair watching him on them videos

CURT: It appears from reading the board that all the Ladies love the Nature Boy!!! Wooooo

PATRICK: Paul i remember seeing a couple matches between Flair and Kevin Non Erich, one time it was a non title match and Kevin beat Ric and the other one Flair beat him.I think they wrestled more then that but i hadn't seen them. Paul get back with us on messageboard to fill us in on the match after you receive it. and you are right about wwe raw being horrible without the man. I could care less about wwe without Ric to be perfectly honest

DAVID KINLEY: WOOO CHAD I LOVED THAT WHEN THE NAITCH WOULD COME OUT FOR A PROMO ON WCW AND HE WOULD GRAB THE MIC AND SAY "MEAN WOOOOOOO BY GOD GENE WOOOOOO THAT WAS CLASSIC AND HILARIOUS FLAIR DOING A PROMO AS ONLY HE CAN DO. MEAN WOOO BY GOD GENE WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

MELISSA: Renae how long have you loved Slick Ric Flair? I am 38 years young and I fell in love with him when i was 14 when my daddy used to watch NWA wrestling every Sat. morning. My daddy hated Ric Flair but i used to get mad at him when he would pull for the good guys because i loved Ric and Ric only!!! Renae if you rode space mountain then after you finished the ride it would be my turn to jump on because i have dreamed of that day for 24 years. I think Ric could handle us both because he always said he was "All Night Long" WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

JC: The Flair valentine's day videos are awesome. I laugh harder every time I watch them. Thanks webmaster Dave for putting them on the website.

MATT THOMPSON: sorry guys but flair is never going to tna!! sorry!!!

TYSON: Flair joining tna wrestling and competing against "The Stinger" on more time would be a great thing and would would help tna out a lot but Flair has already said that he is not interested,and tna president Dixie Carter has already offered Flair and lucrative contract to join them and he still said no so odds of it happening are slim to none.

BRADLEY: THE BEST VALENTINE FLAIR PROMO IS THE FLAIR "FLIRTATIOUS" VIDEO.

JOSEPH: Renae i got three words for you     LOL  

RYAN: when i read posts from flair's female fanbase what comes to my mind is space moutain may be the oldest ride in the park --- but it still has the longest line

ADAM: I WENT TO ELKIN, NORTH CAROLINA TO MEET RIC FLAIR SATURDAY AND I GOT THERE AT 11 A.M. AND I THOUGHT THAT SINCE I WAS THERE WITH TWO HOURS LEFT IN THE AUTOGRAPH SIGNING THAT I WOULD BE ABLE TO MEET HIM BUT IT DIDN'T HAPPEN. WHEN I GOT THERE I WAS SHOCKED AT THE MASSIVE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE THAT WERE THERE WAITING IN LINE. THE LINE WAS SO LONG IT WAS "FN" INSANE THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE. I'VE NEVER SEEN THAT MANY PEOPLE IN A TINY TOWN LIKE ELKIN BEFORE. THE GOOD THING IS THAT I HAVE MET RIC FLAIR BEFORE BACK IN '94 BUT STILL WAITING IN LINE FOR TWO HOURS SUCKED. IT IS MY OWN FAULT THOUGH I SHOULD HAVE GOT THERE EARLIER.  ALL THESE MONTHS AFTER LEAVING WWE RIC FLAIR IS BIGGER THEN EVER. AT EVERY AUTOGRAPH SIGNING THE CROWDS KEEP GETTING BIGGER AND BIGGER. RIC FLAIR IS STILL THE MAN!!

PAUL WESTBROOK: Hi Dave. The pics were fantastic and only wish I had been there as well to meet and greet with Ric and hopefuly as always he was as nice a guy as I always say he is. Ok here is my message for the board to post. Hello Fanatics! And Patrick I will definately do just that once Ive seen the match. For you fellow Flair Fanatics if you want to look at some classic Ric Flair footage all you need do, is do like I do and go to YOU TUBE, because there is a lot of classic wrestling on it, and especially of Ric's. I got Ric Flair vs Ultimate Warrior, Ric Flair vs Rick Steamboat from 1977 where Ric lost the television title but made Steamboat a big star as a result, and another unknown Flair vs Steamboat match from 1989 at a houseshow. My collection of just Ric alone is pretty darn good, so if I may, I'd like to recap what I already have, and hope to get some opinions. First, I hae a now 17 videotape set called RIC FLAIR; LEGEND, RIC FLAIR AND THE FOUR HORSEMEN DVD, THE ULTIMATE RIC FLAIR COLLECTION DVD, AND RIC FLAIR; THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION DVD, and on a blank somewhere I have RIC FLAIR; TWO DECADES OF EXCELLENCE, so tell me do I have a lot of Ric or what? WOOOOOOOO!!

SAMMY: Here is my weekly preview for this Thursday's TNA impact episode. Thanks again Webmaster Dave for posting my e-mails.

JUSTIN: I met the Naitch Saturday and i thought i was never going to make it through the line it was so LONG!!! He was very kind like he always is. Ric Flair is a CLASS ACT!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
BOBBY: I was driving down the road and listening to 100.9 WIFM and they were talking about Flair being at the furniture store(Schewels) and the Disc Jockey said that there were thousands of people there to see the Nature Boy.  Flair put more Asses in seats when he was wrestling then any other wrestler and now that he is doing personal appearances he is putting more Asses in long lines then any other person. Wooo!
TERESA: THE NEW PICS FROM ELKIN IS AWESOME DAVID. YOU ARE A VERY LUCKY MAN TO MEET RIC SO MANY TIMES LIKE THAT.  I WOULD HAVE A HEART ATTACK IF RIC WOULD COME HERE TO OREGON TO SIGN AUTOGRAPHS AND TAKE PHOTOS. HE IS VERY POPULAR HERE AND I HOPE HE COMES HERE SOON. MY LIFELONG GOAL IS TO MEET HIM. IF HE DOES COME HERE ONE DAY I WANT HIM TO TELL ME SOME SECRETS ABOUT SPACE MOUNTAIN  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
ERNIE: WOOOO i am sure everyone had a good time in Elkin meeting the greatest wrestler of all time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
JASON: Diamonds are Forever and from the looks of the long ass line at Schewels Furniture in Elkin, N.C. Saturday it would be safe to say so is Ric Flair.
DENNIS JARVIS: ric flair is a kiss stealin wheelin dealin limousine ridin jet flyin son of a gun who has kissed all the girls and made 'em cry, wooooo ric flair has walked that isle and styled and profiled to be the best damn wrestler to ever lace up a pair of damn boots. ric flair is the king of pro wrestling. wooooooo
LANCE: Tyson I agree with you man but I don't blame Dixie Carter for trying to get Ric to come to tna because she Is smart enough to know that If Ric did show up In tna Vince Mcmahon and wwe would sh#t In their pants.
ROBERT GARANT: DAVID THE REASON YOUR WEBSITE IS THE BEST WEBSITE EVER IS THE CONSTANT UPDATES YOU DO TO IT. I TURN AROUND AND THERE ARE MORE UPDATES I SEE. THAT IS WHY WE KEEP COMING BACK. GREAT GREAT JOB MY FRIEND AND KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
CHRIS L: I think it's funny how vinny mac is trying to get ric to come back to wwe and sign a contract. lol!! yeah i would like to see flair on tv more often but i hope he tells vince to stick it because vince don't deserve ric.ric is more successful now without wwe. the huge crowds that show up for every event flair does now tell the real story.i wouldn't be surprised if vinny mac is a little envious of ric because he probably thought there was no way in hell that ric flair could draw large amounts of people without the backing of him and the wwe.you thought wrong vinny mac. wrong!! wrong!!! LOL!!!
PAUL WESTBROOK: I would like to wish the Nature Boy Ric Flair a Happy 60'th birthday today from Paul Westbrook Brantford Ontario Canada. HAPPY BIRTHDAY RIC! 
SAMMY: Hey TNA fans here is a message from TNA president Dixie Carter on TNA impact last thursday night getting the highest rating they have ever got. Thanks again Webmaster Dave.

A MESSAGE FROM TNA WRESTLING PRESIDENT DIXIE CARTER

I want to take this opportunity to personally thank all of you for making last Thursday's edition of TNA "iMPACT!" the most-watched broadcast in our company's history.

Last October, we invited wrestling fans around the world to "Cross The Line" and sample our product, whether it was watching "iMPACT!", ordering a Pay-Per-View, experiencing a live show or even visiting our website. We asked that if you enjoyed it, you would tell a friend about us. Well, you have responded and we are so grateful.

Since that time, TNA has also accomplished several major milestones including our debut in Hi-Def on SpikeTV, our first live television special from Las Vegas, our biggest event of the year with Bound For Glory and our hugely successful tour of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland.

In 2009, we will celebrate seven years in business. The little company who no one gave a chance has grown by leaps and bounds because of you, our fans. We will continue to work hard to earn your support. Several big things are already being planned including April's brutal, all-steel cage pay-per-view, Lockdown, in Philadelphia, new superstars, new programming, a reinvigorated focus on the X Division, expansion of our online digital world and so much more.

Once again, all thanks to you. You are loyal and passionate and we donít take this opportunity you have given us for granted.

Dixie Carter
President, TNA Wrestling

MATTHEW: HEY RIC DRINK A "COLD ONE" ON ME TONIGHT.  I ALREADY DRANK TOO MANY MYSELF BUT I DID TOAST ONE FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY. HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOU KISS STEALIN WHEELIN DEALIN LIMOUSINE RIDIN JET FLYIN SON OF A GUN WHO LIKES TO DRINK COLD ONES AND PARTY ALL NIGHT LONG!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
SAMMY: Hey fans as most of you know I usually give weekly previews for TNA Impact but this post is going to be a little different.I copied some statements that WWE's Michael Cole and Jim Ross made about the "Naitch" that I think you fans will like. Thanks as usual Webmaster Dave for posting my e-mails on your message board.

Michael Cole = Ric Flair has unbridled passion, incomparable emotion, and off-the-chart charisma.

Jim Ross = Happy Birthday to my long time friend Ric Flair who turns 60 years young today. Ric will eternally be young at heart and seeing him and sitting down for a visit with him will be one of my personal highlights at Wrestlemania 25. Ric will induct Ricky Steamboat into the WWE Hall of Fame and if you go back and take a look at the year 1989 no one in the business had better matches together than these two. Every time they wrestled they seem to put on a clinic. I wonder how many young wrestlers who truly desire to be a wrestling star some day have throughly studied these bouts? Between tanning and being on their computers, unfortunately not enough would be my assumption. Sorry to come off as a grumpy, old schooler but these matches were grappling art.


TIM GARNER: HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TO THE MAN(RIC FLAIR) WHO INSPIRED ME TO WATCH PRO WRESTLING. I WILL NEVER FORGET AS A 10 YEAR OLD BOY WATCHING HIS BOUTS AGAINST "ROWDY" RODDY PIPER FOR THE NWA U.S. TITLE IN THE NWA JIM CROCKETT PROMOTIONS. THE YEAR WAS 1980 AND WATCHING THE PIPER/FLAIR FEUD GOT ME HOOKED ON WRESTLING. HULK HOGAN IS NO TRUE LEGEND BECAUSE BEHIND THE SCENES HE IS A "FN" PRICK AND HE COULDN'T WRESTLE WORTH A SH#T ANYWAY BUT TRUE LEGENDS ARE GUYS LIKE "HOT ROD" RODDY PIPER AND "NATURE BOY" RIC FLAIR. NWA OLD SCHOOL "FN" RULES!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
ALICIA: I wish Ric Flair a very Happy Belated Birthday to my man Ric Flair. Hey Ric "I got a Kiss for you for Christmas" Wooooooooo 
TIFFANY D: great pics david, you have to be the luckiest man in the whole wide world to meet ric flair so many times, what does he think of your fabulous website dedicated to him? he has to be so thankful of you to do this tribute to him. great job and keep up the good work!!!
JERRY (FLAIR COMING TO WALMART) WOOOO I AM PLANNING ON GOING TO MEET THE GREATEST TO EVER LACE UP A PAIR OF BOOTS RIC FLAIR AT "WALMART" IN PANAMA CITY NEXT MONTH.HE WILL BE SINGING AUTOGRAPHS.I HEARD HE SIGNED A BIG MONEY DEAL WITH WALMART AND IT IS A FREE SIGNING SO I CAN'T PASS IT UP.WOOOOO WALMART WILL BE STYLING AND PROFILING VERY SOON WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
KEVIN: I sure wish Ric Flair would make a trip to my great state of Tennessee for a photo session and to sign autographs. I have never met him damn it. Remember wrestling fans it was May 9th, 1989 in Nashville, Tennessee were the greatest wrestling match of all time took place between Ricky Steamboat and Ric Flair. My cousin was there and seen the match live.Come on Ric i beg you to come to Tennessee.
DALE: David i really like the new Flair pics from Elkin.Your website keeps getting better and better.Updates all the time. It is Awesome!!
RYAN: I WANT TO SEE RIC FLAIR FLAIR VS. CHRIS JERICHO AT WRESTLEMANIA 25.FLAIR IS IN GREAT SHAPE AND WEIGHS THE SAME HE DID A YEAR AGO WHEN HE WRESTLED S. MICHAELS.I THINK FLAIR AT 60 CAN PUT ON A BETTER PERFORMANCE THEN THE YOUNG GUYS CAN.I KNOW MCMAHON IS TRYING TO TALK RIC INTO DOING THIS NOW IT IS TIME FOR RIC TO AGREE AND COME BACK AND WRESTLE AGAIN.ONE MATCH WOULD BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME HE DON'T HAVE TO COME BACK FULL TIME BUT I DO WANT ONE MORE MATCH OUT OF THE MAN.I WOULD RATHER HAVE HIM GO TO TNA AND WRESTLE STING BUT THAT PROBABLY AIN'T GOING TO HAPPEN SO I WOULD BE COOL WITH FLAIR KICKING JERICHO'S ASS AT MANIA.HOW DO YOU FANS FEEL ABOUT THIS?
GREG: happy birthday to the kiss stealin wheelin dealin limousine ridin jet flyin son of a gun the man the myth the legend space mountain himself ric flair. wooooo wooooo woooooo woooooo happy birthday to the king of the ring wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: Hello everyone...........I just finished putting up a new page on the site called "Flair Birthday" with a article that came from the "Charlotte Observer newspaper"........It is a great article so be sure to check it out...........Enjoy the article.........Thanks.........Webmaster, David Matthews................................
JOEY BOWERS: Happy belated birthday to you Ric! WOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope you have 60 more good years ahead of you. I met you in Elkin N.C. on Feb. 21 just 2 days before my own birthday. WOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! It's good to know you'll still be meeting & greeting all of us until you say it's time to stop. WOOOOO!!!!!!!!!
JAMES COLLER: Paul Westbrook i read your post about your Flair collection and i must say it's impressive, i have everything on your list except for the two decades of excellence Flair vhs video. Didn't that come out in the mid 90's? i go to youtube once in a while but not often. Webmaster Dave your website rocks dude it is the best site i've ever seen.
BILLY PREVETTE: Flair and Darius Rucker fans read this news

Ric Flair is booked on 4/13 in North Myrtle Beach, SC at the Hootie & The Blowfish Masters Celebrity Pro-Am Golf tournament. Darius Rucker of the band is a big Flair fan, and even purchased one of Flair's robes. Top billing was given to Flair.


FLAIRRULES: Hey guys and gals Calvin here.I have been coming to David's site for about three years.speaking of David great pics of you and your mom and nephew from Elkin, N.C. last week with the Champ.how many other Celebs would sign autographs for three hours and the line still be outside the building and refuse to leave until they signed them all??? that is what Flair done back in '97 when in met him and i heard that he has done this many more times.the man is a class act and i am forever greatful to be his fan.   thank you Ric Flair!!!
TYLER: CALL ME OLD SCHOOL IF YOU WANT BUT I JUST CAN'T GET INTO WWE RAW THAT MUCH ANYMORE. I TUNED IN LAST WEEK AND I JUST CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO PROVE.   I AM NOT A FAN OF TNA EITHER BUT THEY BEAT THE HELL OUT OF WWE. I THINK THE LOSS OF A GUY BY THE NAME OF RIC FREAKIN FLAIR HAS SEVERELY HURT WWE'S PRODUCT.   HOW CAN YOU REPLACE RIC FLAIR???  ANSWER:  YOU CAN'T!
DAVID R: I was a wrestling fan for many years but the wrestling on tv today is not the way it used to be and to me it ain't even wrestling anymore it is more of a soap opera so several years back i stopped watching and i only started watching it again during Flair's retirement storyline and then after that was over i stopped watching it again and i will never watch it again until Flair makes a comeback.To be honest i think Flair is too good a human being to even be involved in something filled with filth and vulgarity like the wrestling we see today anyway. Ric Flair always stood for "hard work" "skill" "passion" "charisma" and Ric was a class act not just inside the ring by making so many guys careers but he was a class act outside the ring with his charity work and his generosity to his legion of fans. that is a true role model, them sob's that are wrestling today ain't role models. Ric Flair is a true role model
MARK BERGMAN: I recently seen a poll and the results are no surprise

Who was the greatest touring NWA world champion of All Time?
Ric Flair 61.2%
Lou Thesz 18.1%
Harley Race 9.6%
Terry Funk 3.8%
Dory Funk Jr. 2.4%
Buddy Rogers 2.2%
Jack Brisco 1.0%
Gene Kiniski 0.9%
Pat O'Connor 0.9%


ANTHONY: Ric Flair's first appearance for the wrestling promotion Ring of Honor (ROH) has been announced for March 13th in Collinsville, IL. Flair's second appearance has been confirmed for 12th in Manassas, VA. There will be a special meet & greet autograph session that will be held from 6PM-8PM at the Sports Network and Fitness Inc, 8320 Quarry Road, Manassas, VA 20110. Flair will also appear live that evening during the event.
RANDY: I KNEW THAT BILLY. I LIKE DARIUS RUCKER'S COUNTRY SONG "DON'T THINK I DON'T THINK ABOUT IT".HE IS A GOOD SINGER AND A HUGE FLAIR FAN. I THINK HE SPENT A LOT ON THAT FLAIR ROBE HE BOUGHT TOO.
TJ: it would be killer if flair would wrestle again but sadly it won't occur if he wrestled jericho at mania it would be great
SHELDON: that one post is right on cause Flair is still bench pressing some impressive numbers and his arms is still big as hell.of course that lady on the video wants to ride space mountain and she probably already has because Flair is still the man!! Woooooooo
JAMES: I hope you fans are reading Sammy's posts on the board because tna wrestling is awesome as hell every week.i don't miss a single episode and in my opinion tna beats the crap out of wwe. Sammy is right tna is the best wrestling company in the world and last weeks show was awesome again. HOORAY FOR TNA!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
DEREK: HEY FLAIR FANATICS PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT "FLAIR" HAD THE GREATEST SEND-OFF IN THE HISTORY OF WRESTLING THERE IS NO NEED FOR HIM TO WRESTLE AGAIN EVEN THOUGH I UNDERSTAND THAT IT WOULD BOOST RATINGS.PLUS FROM THE LOOKS OF WHAT IS GOING ON WITH "FLAIR" RIGHT NOW DOES ANYONE REALLY BELIEVE THAT HE ACTUALLY HAS THE TIME TO STEP BACK IN THE RING? THE MAN IS VERY BUSY AND HAS SOMETHING GOING ON EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY SO HIS TIME IS LIMITED. AND HE IS MAKING MORE MONEY SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS WITHOUT HAVING TO PUT HIS BODY THROUGH THE GRIND OF TAKING BUMPS SO WHAT DOES HE HAVE TO GAIN BY GETTING BACK IN THE RING. I LOVE YOU FANATICS POSTS ON THE MESSAGE-BOARD BUT SOME OF YOU ARE NOT THINKING ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE SAYING. NO OFFENCE BECAUSE I ENJOY READING ALL OF THEM BUT LET'S TRY TO BE MORE REALISTIC.
K. PARKS: sheldon you're right my friend flair's arms are ripped on the one video with the lady. good to see flair is staying in shape instead of being a fat slob like dusty rhodes
CURT: I agree that Flair was the best "touring" world champion ever but 2nd place should have been Harley Race and not Lou Thesz. "Damn"  Flair won by a landslide didn't he? Thanks Mark for sending that
FRANK: Derek i do think everyone on the board is being realistic. the reason people want flair to come back so bad is because they miss him so damn much because he was the most important part of the wrestling program so i think you are mistaken people being realistic with people missing flair.
KYLE: DEREK AND FRANK THIS POST IS FOR BOTH OF YOU. "THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT RIC FLAIR HAS NOTHING LEFT TO PROVE BECAUSE THE THREE DAY RETIREMENT SEND OFF HE HAD WITH THE "HALL OF FAME CEREMONY" AND "WRESTLEMANIA'S CLASSIC MATCH AGAINST SHAWN MICHAELS" AND THE NIGHT AFTER MANIA WHEN HE WAS THE FOCAL POINT OF THE "GREATEST MOST EMOTIONAL MOMENT IN THE HISTORY OF PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING ON RAW WAS I THINK THE FINISHING TOUCHES OF THE GREATEST SHOW OF RESPECT EVER BESTOWED ON ONE ATHLETE EVER IN NOT JUST WRESTLING BUT IN ALL SPORTS PERIOD" .

NAME ONE OTHER ATHLETE IN ANY OTHER SPORT THAT HAS EVER HAD A THREE DAY CELEBRATION LIKE THE ONE FLAIR HAD LAST YEAR??? NAME ONE???  FRANK'S RIGHT PEOPLE DO WANT FLAIR BACK BUT FLAIR SHOULD DO WHAT FLAIR WANTS TO DO. HE HAS PUT 3O PLUS YEARS INTO HIS WRESTLING CAREER SO I UNDERSTAND THAT HE WANTED TO BE ON HIS OWN AND DO THINGS HIS OWN WAY AND NOT HAVE TO ANSWER TO VINCE MCMAHON ANY LONGER.

THIS LITTLE DISAGREEING IN THE MESSAGE BOARD IS SILLY AND WE ALL SHOULD HAVE ONE GOAL IN MIND AND THAT IS SUPPORTING RIC FLAIR IN ANY DECISION HE MAKES. IF HE NEVER WRESTLES AGAIN THAT IS FINE WITH ME. IF HE COMES BACK AND WRESTLES AGAIN THAT IS FINE TOO. WHATEVER HE DOES IS FINE WITH ME BECAUSE HE HAS EARNED THE RIGHT TO DO ANYTHING HE WANTS TO DO AND DEREK AND FRANK THAT IS THE BOTTOM LINE.


VICTOR: james i agree with you man tna is really good. i never thought i would be a tna fan until about 6 months ago. so sad that flair won't go there but maybe he will someday. we can hope can't we?
SCOTT GRAYSON: i had my own ric flair tribute day yesterday. i watched 2 of his dvd's all in one day from when i got out of bed in the morning until i went back to sleep last night. i had a day off of work so i made the most of it. over 10 hours of pure Naitch!!! Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
LACY: Hey Webmaster David please tell Ric next time you speak with him that I love him and that I want to ride SPACE MOUNTAIN ALL NIGHT LONG. RIC FLAIR IS MY SEX GOD!!! WOOO WOOOOOO WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
TIM: WHAT IF RIC FLAIR WENT TO (TNA) AND BECAME THE MANAGER TO THE MAIN EVENT MAFIA??. HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE?  THEY WOULD BE UNSTOPPABLE WITH THE (DIRTIEST PLAYER IN THE GAME) PLAYING THE ROLE OF JJ DILLION. THAT WOULD BE SO FREAKIN KILLER IF THAT TOOK PLACE!! WHO LIKES THIS IDEA??????
PATRICIA: Hey Derek of course I know that Flair is making lots of money doing personal appearances but that still don't fill the void in my heart when I tune in to wwe tv does it?? Is the fact that Ric is making lots of money supposed to make me want to see him less on tv?? I am being realistic for your information and maybe you should try it yourself sometime.
ANONYMOUS: I have not seen your whole site yet but I have to tell you I m very happy I found it. I have been a Ric Flair fan my whole life.  I have a scrapbook from when I was very young. Any pics you have of flair against the anderson brothers or terry or dory funk would be greatly appreciated.
CHRIS DUTTEN: Jesus Christ Lacy!!!! LOL!!!! All the Ladies want Flair don't they??? LOL Lacy!!! LOL!!!
JEFF: Tim that would be cool man for Flair to be the manager of the MEM speaking of tna they broke their own record for ratings this past thursday night.i wouldn't mind seeing Flair wrestle Robert Roode too if he went there.Roode is a damn good worker in the ring and i predict one day he will be a superstar.Whooooo!
GREG: lol lacy that is what i love about rfgolds messageboard is reading you women's fantasies about the naitch. it sure as hell muct be nice to be the naitch and have all these women fantasize about you all the time. wooooooooooooooooo
JOHN: THAT WOULD BE REALLY INTERESTING TO SEE "FLAIR" MANAGE THE "MAIN EVENT MAFIA"   THE PROBLEM IS THAT BEFORE HE COULD DO IT HE WOULD HAVE TO BEAT THE SH#T OUT OF MR."STEROID FREAK" HIMSELF SCOTT "STEROID" STEINER BECAUSE NO WAY THAT "FLAIR" IS GOING TO WORK WITH THAT "STEROID FREAK" PIECE OF SH#T AND I DON'T BLAME HIM.OF COURSE BOOKER T, KURT ANGLE, KEVIN NASH AND STING WOULD EASILY TRADE "MR. STERIOD" FOR THE "GREATEST WRESTLER OF ALL TIME WOULDN'T THEY??????  HELL YEAH THEY WOULD!!!!!!!!!
BRETT CURTIS: Ric Flair PLEASE come back to wwe and make them worth watching again. If Ric would wrestle at wrestlemania then i would order the ppv but without Ric i don't give a crap about wwe.
KEVIN: Has everyone on this message-board read Lacy's post??  If you hadn't then for god's sake you should read it because it is funnier then hell.  I can't stop laughing. Hey Lacy LOL to you  
BRUCE: Kyle's right Flair fanatics i couldn't have said it better myself. Flair has earned the right to do as he pleases end of story!!
MARK BERGMAN: Thanks Curt for enjoying my Poll results to who was the greatest touring world champion ever. "I also agree with you" that Harley Race should have been 2nd place instead of Lou Thesz.and i think Ric would agree with us on that one cause Flair has said repeatedly that Harley Race was the toughest man he ever wrestled. no offence to Thesz but Race was better.
THOMAS CORBETT: I can't wait to see Ric Flair at the HOF ceremony.   Seeing him is going to be totally Awesome!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
ROB: Remember back in the day when on interviews Ric Flair would say that he could have any woman in the world he wanted just by snaping his fingers? I think that he is exactly right because from hearing what all the women say about him how can we think anything different? Thousands of ladies love the Champ because he kisses them all and makes "em cry Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
JASON: So you fans want to see the Nature Boy walk the isle in TNA and become the Main Event Mafia's manager? I'm sorry but i wouldn't like to see that happen as long as Steiner is still with MEM. Steiner is a A Hole and he is so jealous of Flair's legacy that he could never work with him that closely.
BOBBY: yeah guys steiner is a steroid injected freak with not much wrestling talent anymore, years ago he had talent until he bafooned into a steroid injecter.behind the scenes i doubt anyone in tna really respects that guy after the crap he has said about people. he does suck!!
ERIC: WOOOOO THE NATURE BOY IS STILL THE KISS STEALIN WHEELIN DEALIN LIMOUSINE RIDIN JET FLYING SON OF A GUN AND HE STILL KISSES ALL THE GIRLS AND MAKES THEM CRY WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
RICHARD (SCOTT STEINER SUCKS) Flair would NEVER become the manager of the Main Event Mafia as long as that Freakin PRICK Scott Steiner (Steriod Junkie just like you guys on the board said) is still a current member of the group. To be honest with you Flair fanatics i would like the MEM a lot better if they would kick that (Steriod Junkie) out of the group. He is like Hulk Hogan behind the curtain because he has said some ignorant things about some good respected people that he can never take back and people will never forgive him for. Hogan (Steriod Junkie #1) and (Steriod Junkie #2 Scott (I'm juiced up because i don't know how to wrestle) Steiner is a couple PRICKS!!.    F#ck Steriod Steiner!!!! I hate him!!!!!!!!!!!
CHAD: PEOPLE LIKE SCOTT STEINER DON'T EVEN DESERVE TO HAVE HIS NAME MENTIONED ON A MESSAGE BOARD AS GREAT AS WEBMASTER DAVID'S RFGOLDS RIC FLAIR TRIBUTE SITE.I AM SERIOUS EVERYONE LETS GET REAL OK?? STEINER AIN'T A TRUE PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER ALL HE KNOWS HOW TO DO IS INJECT HIS ARM WITH STEROIDS. THAT IS MY OPINION AND FROM THE VIEWS OF THE OTHER POSTS I THINK I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE AM I?
SAMMY: Hey fans here is the preview for TNA's impact this thursday night, and it appears that Mr. Steriods will be wrestling on the show too. LOL Thanks as usual Dave for posting my e-mails.

All this and much more on Thursday's TNA "iMPACT!" on SpikeTV starting at 9pm ET!


MATTHEW: I seen Sting on a legit interview one time and he said that he had no respect for Scott Steiner in real life. None whatsoever! and this interview wouldn't scripted it was legit so you guys are right about Steiner.More people don't like him besides just "Ric Flair"
LEWIS BRANDON: I seen someone talk about this subject on the board a while back so i looked it up. It is true that the Hall Of Fame ceremony this year is still not sold out. Can you believe that?? it is only a month to go and they still ain't sold out yet.: Last year when it was announced that Flair was going to be inducted tickets sold out almost immediately and more people tried to get in the place and it was standing room only.What does this say about the popularity of Ric Flair?? Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
PAUL WESTBROOK: Gretting Flair Fanatics and you all probably by now noticed that our guy the Nature Boy Ric Flair appeared on RAW last night and distracted Jericho costing him the MITB spot. I need some opinions now as to whether you all feel that Ric should wrestle Chris Jericho next week or not! So I want to hear some of your thoughts opinions whatever. Let's get this discussion going. WOOOOOOOO!! 
WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: Hello everyone.............I have been VERY busy today and tonight so I want to apologize to the people who didn't get their e-mails posted on the board yet...........and Paul sorry I didn't get your e-mail posted yesterday........I somehow accidently skipped it so i am a day late...........sorry about that.............to everyone who e-mailed me today and tonight (Wednesday) please take note that your e-mails will get posted on the message board very soon........Thanks............Webmaster, David Matthews.....................
LARRY: Ric Flair shouldn't wrestle this monday night on Raw but he should wrestle him at Wrestlemania. That would be so great, Raw is not the place for the match but i think the Nature Boy should get in the ring one last time and the place for the match is Wrestlemania. Last Year Ric Flair was in the most memorable match in the history of Wrestlemania. I want to see the Naitch at Wrestlemania!! WooooOOOOooooooOOOOOoooooooOOOOooooooo!!!
DEREK: PAUL WESTBROOK I DON'T THINK THE JERICHO FLAIR MATCH SHOULD TAKE PLACE FOR FREE ON NATIONAL TELEVISION. MAYBE IT SHOULD HAPPEN AT MANIA. FLAIR IS BIG TIME AND HE SHINES ON THE GRANDEST STAGE OF THEM ALL WHICH IS MANIA NOT RAW ON MONDAY NIGHT. DON'T GET ME WRONG I WOULD LOVE TO SEE RIC FLAIR WRESTLE AGAIN ON MONDAY NIGHT RAW BUT TO BE "FAIR TO FLAIR" MAYBE IT SHOULD HAPPEN AT WRESTLEMANIA.
SAMMY: Hey fans here is the Awesome lineup for the TNA PPV that takes place this Sunday. Thanks Webmaster Dave!!

CHRIS: that would be so killer to see the man beat jericho's a#s monday nite but it won't happen. Flair ain't wrestling ever again but they are keeping him on tv because he is ratings.
JT: It don't really matter to me whether Ric Flair wrestles monday night or not as long as i continue getting to see him on a regular basis and it looks as though that's gonna happen because he has been on WWE twice in the last month so it is good to see that Vinny Mac has smartened up and realized that we want to see Ric no matter what he does. Ain't i right Flair fanatics??
AARON: WOOOO Flair didn't do much on Raw monday night, He didn't talk he didn't do much of anything but he didn't have to because just his presence of appearing during Jericho's match distracted Jericho so much that he lost the match.  lol.
FREDDIE: IF FLAIR COMES BACK TO WRESTLE AGAIN THEN AND ONLY THEN WILL I EVER WATCH WRESTLING AGAIN AND THAT IF A FACT. WRESTLING "SUCKS" WITHOUT RIC FLAIR!!
ROBERT: Damn that would be so cool if ric flair wrestled just one more time and it would be even sweeter if it happened at wrestlemania. i know it probably won't happen but it sure would be so cool if it did wouldn't it???
JESSICA: Ric Flair PLEASE come back and wrestle if you did that would make me so  because it ain't the same without you doing what you do best. I know you can't do a full schedule but i hope you could wrestle at least a few more times.
MANDY: I have Loved the "Nature Boy" for 25 plus years and i will love him until the day i die-- Ric Flair is and always will be the man!  and he is the best darn looking man that i have ever seen too and that ain't a bad thing-- Woooooooooo!
RYAN: David here is my post for you to put on the board.   "I got one important word to say to everyone reading the message board and it goes like this" WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
SAMMY: Hey Dave i got something else about TNA for you to post on the board. It is some interesting news to say the least. Please post this on the board. Thanks again.

DANNY BONADUCE TO WRESTLE AT THE LOCKDOWN PAY-PER-VIEW

TNA Wrestling announced today that Philadelphia-based disc jockey Danny Bonaduce will have his first pro wrestling match on Sunday, April 19, at Lockdown, inside the lethal six-sides of steel.

Bonaduce, the former wise-cracking son on the 1970s television series The Partridge Family, is the morning drive DJ on WYSP (94.1 FM) in Philadelphia.

TNA Wrestling executives would not comment on who Bonaduce's opponent will be, but confirmed that the TNA Wrestling Superstar will be in Philadelphia next Friday, March 20, for the official Contract Signing, to be held on-air during Bonaduce's radio show. 


TIMOTHY: Don't you guys think that the reason WWE is making it look like Flair will be wrestling on Raw this week knowing that in reality he won't is because they know that the mention of his Name brings Ratings to the show??What other reason would they be??They know he ain't wrestling right??Give me a break!!
BRIAN: WOOOOO A BIG REASON TO WATCH WWE RAW TONIGHT, I JUST READ ON-LINE THAT THE NAITCH HIMSELF WILL WALK THE ISLE AND STYLE AND PROFILE TONIGHT ON RAW LOOKING AS ONLY HE CAN LOOK. WOOOOOO TONIGHT SHOULD BE AWESOME BECAUSE OF THE "FREAKIN" NAITCH WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
KEVIN: If Vince McMahon had any Brain Cells he would offer Ric Flair anything he wanted and get on his hands and knees and beg him to come back and wrestle because if he did the ratings would improve and more people would tune in to wwe more often that is how i feel.
MELODY: I want Ric Flair to "Rock My World" with Space Mountain All Night Long Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
CO WEBMASTER CINDY: Hello everybody it has been a long time but it feels great to finally have the opportunity to help David out on the site for a change.Speaking of David he has no idea i put a new page on his site tonight and he is going to be surprised when he gets home and sees it.Ric Flair is going to be working with Nascar in the near future and we got details about it on the site on the "Flair Charlotte Race" page so be sure to take a look at it all you Flair fans,and i hope to be helping David more in the future,and one more thing David stay away from all them women or i am going to have to call you a "Player" but i already know you are one anyway right Player??? LOL give me a call sometime soon i hadn't spoke with you in a while and Thank You to everyone who supports David's site.I appreciate it also and i know he does as well.
RICKY: Did you fanatics notice how all throughout the show on Raw last night they made it appear that the Naitch would be wrestling Jericho in a match. I am convinced that this was done to have people to keep watching which is kind of similar to what you other fans on the board was discussing in your posts too. That could be perceived as wrong on wwe's part but i was smart enough to realize that Flair wouldn't wrestling anyway so it didn't bother me!
SAMMY: Hey Webmaster Dave if you don't mind would you please post these TNA "Destination X" ppv results from this past Sunday night on the message board for me? Thanks!

COMPLETE RESULTS FROM SUNDAY'S "DESTINATION X" PAY-PER-VIEW EVENT

The complete results from Sunday's Pay-Per-View are as follows:

- The team of Taylor Wilde, Roxxi and The Governor defeated The Beautiful People and Madison Rayne after Wilde beat Rayne with a German suplex to get the pin.

- Brutus Magnus defeated Eric Young after Young answered the newcomer's open challenge. Magnus got the pin after a spinning cutter from the top rope. Following the bout, Sheik Abdul Bashir came out and questioned why he wasn't on the Pay-Per-View. As a result, Jim Cornette kicked Bashir out of the arena, but not before Cornette allowed the United States soldier that introduced Eric Young to sing "God Bless America".

- "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan defeated Abyss in the Match Of 10,000 Thumbtacks after Morgan kicked Abyss off the entrance ramp into a table filled with the thumbtacks.

- In the finals of the One Night With ODB, the TNA Knockout picked Cody Deaner as her lucky man after a dance competition between Deaner, Shark Boy and a Mr. Bernie Weber.

- Awesome Kong successfully defended the TNA Knockouts Championship against Sojo Bolt after beating Bolt with the Awesome Bomb.

- "Big Poppa Pump" Scott Steiner defeated Samoa Joe by disqualification after Joe snapped early on in the match and assaulted the TNA referees! Although Steiner was declared the winner, Samoa Joe continued the assault after the bout, with the fight spilling outside of the arena. Later, Lauren Brooke found Joe walking away from the brawl with his weapon covered in blood, while Steiner was nowhere to be seen! Joe refused to tell Lauren where Steiner was or what he did to him!

- "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles defeated Booker T to become the NEW TNA Legends Champion after hitting the Styles Clash on Booker for the pin! After his victory, AJ took the Legends Title into the crowd and held it above his head, as the crowd went insane around him!

- Team 3D first defeated Beer Money by disqualification in the "Off The Wagon" Challenge after James Storm used a chair. However, Jim Cornette restarted the match, leading to Beer Money losing by countout after they left the arena! 3D hit their finisher on Storm, but Robert Roode yanked him out of the ring and carried him on this back out of the arena while the referee counted the 10. Beer Money are still the reigning champions despite the loss. After the match, Team 3D got into an argument with Don West at the announce table, who was defending Beer Money's actions and actually handed Roode the tag team titles as he fled!

- Mysterious TNA newcomer Suicide became the new X Division champion on Sunday night by defeating Jay Lethal, Consequences Creed, Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin in The Ultimate X Match! It was truly one of the most daredevil Ultimate X bouts in TNA history, as Suicide made an insane leap from the top of the steel structure to the center cables, knocking down the other competitors and pulling down the gold to win the championship!

- In the main event, Sting defeated Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle to successfully defend the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. During the bout, Angle accidentally hit Jarrett with a clothesline, knocking the special referee for a loop. Foley came in to help, but Angle hit him with a low blow and then brought a chair into the ring. Foley took the chair from Angle and went to hit him with it, but he missed and nailed Sting! However, when Angle started talking trash to Jarrett, Jarrett smashed Angle in the face, allowing Sting to hit the Scorpion Deathdrop for the pin and the win as Foley and Jarrett raised Sting's arm in victory to end the event! 


ROBERT: When is Chris Jericho going to learn not to mess with the Nature Boy? For the 2nd time in the last month Jericho got his lights punched out by "The Man"    maybe one day he will learn his lesson. Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
BRUCE: Business is finally picking up on Raw courtesy of the "FN" greatest of all time Slick Ric Wooooooooo Flair!!
KENNETH: I hadn't wacthed Raw much lately but if Flair is going to start making more appearances then i will be watching more often.
FLAIRRULES: I ENJOYED SEEING RIC LAST NIGHT BUT I AM VERY DISSAPOINTED THAT HE WON'T BE WRESTLING JERICHO AT WRESTLEMANIA. I GUESS FLAIR IS WAY TO BUSY WITH HIS HECTIC SCHEDULE TO COMMIT TO WWE ANYTHING LONG-TERM. BOTTOM LINE IS THAT HE AIN'T GOT TIME HE IS TOO MUCH IN DEMAND.
MICK: does anyone know what kind of deal or agreement flair currently has with wwe???  i quit watching wwe after flair's retirement from last year and now i see that he has been back on raw a couple times recently so if that is true i will have to start tuning in to it again if ric is going to be a consistent part to the show. does anyone have the inside scoop on this???
WAYNE H. FROM CHARLOTTE, N.C. Hey There Fellow "Nature Lovers", I'm a Flair fan for a number of reasons, but most significantly because as a young boy, I remember that the first wrestler that I ever heard of was Ric Flair. My stepfather wanted me to "man-up", so he'd bring me these wrestling magazines like Wrestling Illustrated and I'd see a bloody Nature Boy on the cover - sometimes they'd have a picture of Rhodes and Flair together and their faces would be so drenched in blood that you could hardly tell who was who. When TBS broadcasted NWA matches, I was glued to the set, watching Flair strut and cut as only he knew how.

My wife and I moved to Charlotte, NC last year and even though it is an absolutely beatiful city and the livin' is fine, what I love most about this city is that it is "Flair Country" - I hope to one day get a glimpse of Ric stylin' and profilin', looking as only he can look.   Flair has given so much to this business, that we the fans, can never show enough gratitude to him. Flair re-intented the "promo", along with Dusty Rhodes - their trash-talking and flamboyant berating of each other is not only legendary and historical, but it is futuristic as well because from that point on, all the other great superstars from Jeff Jarrett to Stone Cold and The Rock, would use a version of Flair and Rhodes' styles for promos.

"Nature Boy" also accomplished something that probably no other "heel" in wrestling history could do - he became the first heel fan-favorite (to my knowledge). He took the flamboyant wrestling style and bleached blonde hair of the first "Nature Boy" - Buddy Rogers , and turned everything up two or three notches. The women would cheer him chanting "Slick Ric" as he strutted around in his oh so expensively good looking suits, giving out plenty of his patented "Wooooooo"s.   The fans booed when he did a low, cheap shot move, but they never really booed Flair himself - whether he faced Race, Sting, Rhodes, Kerry von Erich, it didn't matter - he was still the Nature Boy - the most dominant force in wrestling.

He was also unique as a fan favored heel because he actually considered the commentators as his friends (something most heels would never do) - he liked Jim Crockett and Tony Schavone. He even came to Jim Crockett's defense when he was attacked by a wrestler that he was interviewing. But besides giving us a taste of pure wrestling greatness and his mastery of the diatribe, we the fans and even more so, every wrestler that's ever walked that aisle, owes Flair for another presidence and milestone.  

Flair was the first wrestler (to my knowledge) to use pyros in his entrance - his laser light show and entrance to Space Odyssey 2001 alone was worth the price of admission(first time a wrestler used a well known movie soundtrack). Flair's entire career was milestone after milestone - he just kept getting better - from his legendary ring wars with Race, Rhodes, and Sting, to his vendetta matches with Terry Funk and Nikita Koloff, to the long awaited showdown between he and Hulk Hogan, to perhaps the greatest championship matches of all time against The Dragon Ricky Steamboat, Flair has done it all, seen it all, and been it all. There only 3 words left to say - THANK YOU RIC!!!


CORY: Kenneth i have to agree.  if Flair is going to be on raw then i will have to tune in more too.and Mick to answer your question i read that Ric has a agreement with Vinny Mac for a handful of appearances leading up to wrestlemania, Vinny Mac tried to get Ric to sign a contract and even wrestle again but Ric turned him down, that is what David the Webmaster told me and if anyone knows what he's talking about David does. I don't blame Ric for not signing the contract deal though because if he did Vinny Mac would think that he ownes Ric and nothing could be further from the truth.
DANIEL: David if I hadn't told you enough times I am going to repeat myself. "YOUR "RIC FLAIR" WEBSITE IS THE BEST TRIBUTE SITE I HAVE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF SEEING. Your site has it all. Flair articles, Flair Pics, Flair Videos, Tons and Tons of Flair news, A "Ass Kicking" Message-Board and constant UPDATES that leaves true Flair fans like me begging for more. David your site rules and please keep up the "Smokin" Fabulous Job. The word that comes to mind when I see your website is WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
BRIAN: OK FLAIR FANS I HAVE TO SAY AS GREAT AS IT WILL BE TO SEE RIC FLAIR AT WRESTLEMANIA I HAVE TO BE HONEST AND TELL YOU FANS THAT I'M TOTALLY DISSAPOINTED IN THE STORYLINE THEY HAVE IN PLACE FOR HIM. WE ALL KNOW THAT RICKY STEAMBOAT CANT TAKE A BUMP IN THE RING BECAUSE OF HIS BAD BACK INJURY, AND JIMMY SNUKA LOOKS PATHETIC HE IS SO BROKEN DOWN, AND RODDY PIPER HAS CANCER SO WHY IN THE HELL IS WWE PROBABLY GOING TO GO WITH A HANDICAP MATCH AT WRESTLEMANIA WITH STEAMBOAT, SNUKA AND PIPER WITH FLAIR IN THEIR CORNER AS THEIR MANAGER GOING AGAINST CHRIS JERICHO???

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS TO ME??? IT MAKES NO SENCE, SHOULDN'T THEY HAVE A ONE ON ONE MATCH WITH ONE OF THE LEGENDS TAKING ON JERICHO AND HAVE FLAIR IN THEIR CORNER??? WOULDN'T THAT MAKE MORE SENCE?? I UNDERSTAND FLAIR BEING IN ONE LEGENDS CORNER FOR THE MATCH BUT THE PROBLEM I HAVE IS THAT IT SURE AS HELL SHOULDN'T BE A HANDICAP MATCH, TO ME THAT MAKES JERICHO LOOK GOOD AND THE LEGENDS LOOK BAD BECAUSE OF COURSE THREE GUYS SHOULD BE ABLE TO BEAT ONE.

WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN IS MICKY ROURKE(FROM THE WRESTLER MOVIE) WRESTLING JERICHO AT MANIA IN A ONE ON ONE MATCH AND HAVE FLAIR BE IN ROURKE'S CORNER WHICH WOUD MAKE SENCE BECAUSE ROURKE HAS ALREADY STATED HOW MUCH HE LOVES AND RESPECTS FLAIR AND THEN AFTER FLAIR CHEATS FOR ROURKE AND ROURKE WINS THE MATCH ALL THE LEGENDS (STEAMBOAT,SNUKA AND PIPER) ALL COME TO THE RING AND THEY DO THEIR SIGNATURE MOVES ON JERICHO AND LEAVE HIM LAYING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AND ALL THE LEGENDS EMBRACE AND EVERYONE IS HAPPY.

THAT STORYLINE MAKES MORE SENCE TO ME THEN A MAN WITH A BROKEN DOWN BACK(STEAMBOAT) AND A MAN WITH CANCER (STEAMBOAT) RISKING THEIR HEALTH ALL FOR A BIG PAYDAY. I AM CURIOUS TO HEAR YOU FLAIR FANS OPINIONS ON THIS POST AND THANKS TO DAVE AND PLEASE POST THIS POST AS SOON AS YOU CAN WEBMASTER DAVE.


RANDY: I am not all that interested in wrestlemania this year, the card looks weaker then usual but the highlight for me will be the night before when Ric Flair inducts Rick Steamboat into the HOF.That will be a lot more interesting then anything that will happen at Wrestlemania. don't you agree??
BRUCE: DID YOU FLAIR FANATICS ENJOY SEEING JERICHO GET SMASHED WITH ANOTHER RIGHT HAND FROM RIC FLAIR ON RAW LAST WEEK? JERICHO IS LUCKY FLAIR AIN'T COMING OUT OF RETIREMENT AIN'T HE?
ERIC (PLEASE COME BACK TO WRESTLE RIC FLAIR) Flair shouldn't listen to Shawn Michaels or anyone on his decision on coming back to wrestle again, i heard him say he would have to talk to Shawn first. But my question is why? Ric Flair is Ric Flair the GREATEST PRO WRESTLER WHO EVER LIVED and by god he shouldn't listen to anybody on making his own decision.It is his decision to make not Shawn Michaels decision. McMahon wants Flair back, the fans want Flair back, and the Ratings sure as hell need Flair back so please come back to wrestle Ric Flair. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CHRIS JOYNER: i seen on the news other day that flair had a autograph singing somewhere recently and they were over 4,000 people in line to see him, flair signed every single autograph and it took him almost 5 hours. i have to agree with a post from the message board several weeks back. someone said that ric flair is a bigger mainstream star right now in his life then he ever was when he was in his prime as world champion. i wonder how it makes hulk hogan feel to know that ric flair is a bigger star then he is?  lol i am sure that puts a hurting on hulk's massive ego don't it?? lol  woooooooooooooooooooooooooo
SHEILA: Ric Flair made a comment on his 60th Birthday that even though he is 60 that "Space Mountain may be the oldest ride in the park but it still has the longest line. I would like to find out more about the longest line he is talking about, I want him to show me personally if you know what i mean.  Woooooooooooooo Ric Flair is my man Woooooooooooooooo
DAVIS: Woooo Ric Flair just made Nascar get a lot more interesting. Nascar sucks compared to what it used to be but leave it to Ric Flair to make it more interesting. The ratings for Nascar has dropped big time in the last couple years and they need someone to boost their ratings for the Charlotte race in May so who do they call on to get the job done?? none other then the "Nature Boy" Ric Flair. Flair will be the honorary Race director and that should boost their attendence to help them get a sell out. Nascar is having big trouble selling out these races these days so maybe the Naitch will help them out.
MICHAEL K: Hooray to nascar for letting Ric Flair style and profile all over Charlotte as only he can.One thing is for certain and that is that NOBODY is bigger in Charlotte N.C. then Nature Boy Ric Flair. I am not a Nascar fan but I will watch the weekends race activities to see the Naitch! WOOOO!
BOBBY: Diamonds are Forever and so is rfgolds.com's message board.Flair fanatics i really enjoy reading all your posts.all of you are true blue Ric Flair fans and that is awesome. Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
KENNETH: Flair has absolutely nothing to prove and i don't have a problem with him if he never wrestles again,I understand that the ratings would go up if he did and that it would make a lot of people happy but you Flair fans have to keep in mind that what we want shouldn't be the most important thing. The most important thing should be what Flair himself wants to do and what makes him happy, and sorry Flair fans but right now Flair is happy making a sh#t load of money by signing autpgraphs and doing personal appearances and doing what he wants to do for a change and I for one am very proud of him.Flair is getting offers left and right to do things he never had the opportunity to do before and who can blame him for that? He is standing on his own two feet showing that he don't and never did need Vince Mcmahon to be successful in this world. I hope Ric does what makes him happy and all you fans should feel the same way,If not then you are not true fans.
RODNEY: With Flair in their corner could the legends be cover for Flair getting involved in the match as the main antagonist for Jericho and yet still not affect his retired status?  What if Jericho just kills the legends and begins to hurt one of them or take a few really cheap shots and then those guys are completely disabled and Flair comes in and does 10-15 minutes of old fashioned brawling. If Flair doesnít get involved in the match in more than just throwing Jericho back into the ring sort of way, it will be a circus and not a very entertaining one.  Snuka, Steamboat, and Piper canít sell tickets at this point, Flair obviously still can and somehow, he has got to get into the mix in the ring.
LEWIS NIXON: You are right Brian the wrestlemania storyline don't make much sence and i hope like hell they change it completely. Let's face it guys this years wrestlemania will fail in comparison to last years anyway. Not just because of Flair but all the matches in general are not that good except for Michaels vs. the Undertaker. That match will interest me but not the others, It will be nice to see what Flair does but he would have a better opportunity to do more if there wouldn't three guys against one in the match. Brian is right it should be a one on one match with Flair as manager and Flair should get involved and cheat for one of the legends to help them get the win. Brian thanks for your post you are right man great points you make.
BILLY: That's right ladies and gentlemen the freakin Naitch will walk that isle and Woooo style and profile in Flair country Charlotte Wooooo North Carolina and show all them Nascar guys what a real athlete is all about. Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
JODI FLAIR (NATUREGIRL77) OMG!  Did anyone see last night's episode of RAW?!  It was terrible!  I'm sorry, but I hated it.  Just about every last minute of it, I don't know why for some strange reason I was "drawn" to it and just could not believe my eyes!   First of all  where in the hell is the justice in the sport and second of all  the nerve of Chris Jericho (I call him Crybaby Generico)  doing Ric like that!  I know that you're not suppose to wish any bad luck or ill upon anyone but I wish that Ric, Rick Steamboat, Roddy Piper and Jimmy Snuka (amongst anyone else) would get their vengeance on that rat Jericho and just ring his neck let alone beat the crap out of him!  You could not believe the words I was yelling at the TV last night, I was that pissed off.  I know for a fact that I'm not alone on this one, I mean I wanted to ring Jericho's neck myself (let alone some of the dorks along ringside cheering him on and laughing and crap.  I felt like kicking them too).  Well just letting off some steam from last night and hope to see justice prevail for once for God's sake. Wooooooooooo!
ROBBIE: I got a question Flair fans, Where is the Blue Hell was Steamboat, Snuka and Piper last night when Chris Jericho was beating on Ric Flair?? I know that Flair has already knocked Jericho in the face twice recently and Jericho got his revenge last night but Flair was getting beat on and no sign of Piper, Snuka and Steamboat. That sucks, maybe Flair should turn heel and beat the crap out of the legends if they can't even come to his defence
ALEX: DON'T CHRIS JERICHO KNOW THAT RIC FLAIR IS THE DIRTIEST PLAYER IN THE GAME??? IF NOT THEN HE WILL FIND OUT SOON.  I PROMISE YOU THAT!!!!!!!
JAMES: after witnessing last night's raw i think they should change the current script and have flair come back into the ring and take on jericho at wrestlemania. if not mania then somewhere.but i know that whether or not flair comes back everyone knows that jericho will pay for what he done to flair. flair has already knocked him on his a#s  a couple times not long ago and i guarantee you he will do i again. but really what is silly here is that in real life jericho worships the ground flair walks on and has said multiple times that flair is his idol and the greatest of all time. that is how wrestling is. lol
WILLIE (THE BLOOD OF RIC FLAIR IS LEGENDARY) WOOOO NOBODY CAN BLEED LIKE THE NAITCH RIC FLAIR BABY!!!  WOOOOO  I WILL ALWAYS LOVE TO SEE THE RED OF BLOOD IN HIS BLEECH BLOND HAIR, IT IS LEGENDARY!!! YES FLAIR IS THE GREATEST WRESTLER OF ALL TIME AND HE IS THE GREATEST PROMO MAN OF ALL TIME NOW WE CAN ADD TO THAT LIST THAT HE IS THE GREATEST BLEEDER OF ALL TIME!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
DONNIE: If the storyline with Flair don't change for WrestleMania then I will not be ordering the PPV. That is all I got to say.
SCOTT RICHARDSON: Hail to the King of WebSites David Matthews Ric Flair WebSite RFGOLDS.COM Wooooooooo David Your Site Rules Man Keep Up The Great Work Woooooo!
GREG: kenneth is right!! flair has nothing to prove and he don't even have a wwe contract signed right now because he is working on a pay as you go schedule. he can't sign a wwe contract because he wouldn't be able to do all the other things he is doing which is making him big bucks. i don't have a problem with jericho beating flair up because flair wouldn't have allowed it to happen if he didn't want it to happen. flair got beat up for a reason, Mcmahon can't make flair get beat up anymore, flair ain't under contract so flair runs the show, flair gets beat up because he wants to get beat up. don't worry flair fans in the end jericho will get a ass whoopin. whooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
RODNEY: At 60 years of age, Ric Flair can still build tension and excitement going into a big match like no one else in the business.  The events that took place on Raw Monday Night were about one thing and one thing only, putting butts in seats and selling pay per views and Ric Flair getting beat up was all about both.  He is still the one wrestler who evokes more emotion than anyone else on the roster and he ainít even on the roster any more and has been gone from the scene for close to a year.  I hope they change the story line now and put him in the match in a cage with Jericho and let them half kill each other.  I guarantee a whole generation of wrestling fans who have been in Flair withdrawal for the last year would be calling their cable company tomorrow for that one.
JANICE: Jodi Flair you are so right i hated watching it too but girlfriend don't worry because Flair will get sweet revenge honey, I agree with your entire post.think about this Jodi when Flair does get jericho back it is going to be more special to us knowing what we seen last night. Flair agreed to get beat up not only to get people to hate jericho more but to make people want him to get revenge even more also so i am thinking about that and that is getting me through.
BARRY: OH MY GOD WHAT ABOUT THAT AMAZING PROMO BY FLAIR LAST NIGHT. FLAIR'S PROMO MADE THE WHOLE SEGMENT, NOBODY CAN DO A PROMO LIKE RIC FLAIR. NOBODY!!!
TIMOTHY: Rodney you are right man.No offence to Piper or Snuka or Steamboat because they are true legends but there is no way that they can increase the Wrestlemania ppv buyrate like Flair can.that is why at Wrestlemania Flair has to get involved and involved in a BIG way. i predict at Wrestlemania Flair won't be standing outside the ring for very long.
DEREK: Wooooo What's Causing All This? Woooo Now it's time to go to School Wooooooooooooooo
JACOB: When is Flair's new video game command and conquer coming out?? does anyone know??
CALVIN: (FLAIR WILL HELP NASCAR'S RATINGS) MAYBE WITH FLAIR'S HELP AT THE ALL STAR RACE IN CHARLOTTE THE RATINGS WILL GO UP. YOU GUYS ARE CORRECT NASCAR'S RATINGS ARE DOWN COMPARED TO A FEW YEARS AGO. IF YOU LOOK UP THE WORD "RATINGS" IN THE DICTIONARY YOU WILL SEE A PICTURE OF "RIC FLAIR" AND NASCAR KNOWS THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
JOSEPH: Yes Yes Rodney you hit the nail on the head with your views about "The Naitch cause Flair does evoke pure emotion in everything he does especially when he opens up his golden mouth and runs it like only he can do. He had me on the edge of my seat other night and i knew that Jericho was going to get the upper hand because Flair had got the best of him the last 2 ocassions and Flair is all about helping a angle get over and in this case it helped Jericho get over as a bad guy(Heel)  Rodney here is what wwe should do in the future, they should have Flair come out on Raw and stand in the middle of the ring and then there should be a Cage raised at the top of the arena and Flair will demand that they lower the cage and he will call out Jericho while he is screaming into the camera and going ballistic on the microphone.

Chris Jericho will come down to the ring and then the cage will be lowered and then they will start street fighting and then Flair will beat the living hell out of Chris Jericho and show Jericho that The Naitch might me older but he is still the DIRTIEST PLAYER IN THE FREAKIN GAME and Flair will slap the greatest finishing move in pro wrestling history the Figure Four Leglock on Jericho's candy ass and Jericho will pound the mat by tapping out and the man left standing tall in the middle of the ring will be the GREATEST PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER THAT HAS EVER LIVED THE "NATURE BOY" RIC "BY GOD" FLAIR and Jericho's Jabroni ass will have no choice but to LEARN TO LOVE IT because Ric Flair is STILL the best thing going today!!!!!!! WOOOOOOO WOOOOOOOOO WOOOOOOOO WOOOOOOOOOOO WOOOOOOOO WOOOOOOOOO WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


DANNY: Diamonds Are Forever Pal and so is the Naitcha Boy Ric Flair the only Kiss Stealin Wheelin Dealin Limousine Ridin Jet Flyin Wrestling Machine that has Kissed all the Beautiful girls and made them beg for Space Mountain All Night Long!!! Woooooo!!
RYAN: jacob "command and conquer" red alert 3: uprising starring ric flair came out a couple weeks ago if im not mistaken
ALAN BRYANT: Hey Flair fanatics I got a example of how much a Ric Flair promo Is a money maker that causes more PPV buys.I was not going to order Wrestlemania this year because to be honest the card Is one of the worst wrestlemania cards I've seen In recent memory and my all time favourite wrestler Ric Flair Is retired and was only going to be used In a manager role for the Jericho vs. Legends match.That was my opinion until this past monday night on raw,then I witnessed a passionate charismatic promo by Ric Flair and then he was atacked by Chris Jericho and I changed my mind and decided to order wrestlemania about 2 minutes after the Jericho/Flair segment was over.

Reason being because Ric Flair being beat up made me want him to kill Chris Jericho and Flair's passionate promo made me want to witness the legends match at Mania because that Is were Flair will get his revenge.So the person who said In their post that Ric Flair Is all about putting butts In seats and selling ppv's Is dead on because that Is exactly what happened to me.I am ordering wrestlemania only because of what happened with Ric Flair on raw last monday.


NEIL: Are all the TNA fans that are on the message-board happy over the big news that they have broke their own ratings record three weeks in a raw? I didn't used to be a TNA fan but you would have to be a fool not to realize that they are on a roll. I wish the best wrestler alive today Kurt Angle and the Main Event Mafia would kick Sting out of the group though. Sting sucks!!! The Main Event Mafia Rules! Wooooooooooooooo
RODNEY: I find it odd that they are having a match with three guys and Jericho but they are using Flair to sell it. I donít know how many times in the history of the business that someone who is not even billed to be in a match on this big of a stage is the main guy selling it. I just wished they would let him be the one in the ring where he could sell it even more in there. Who do you think is holding all the cards to Flair actually being the one in the match: Vince or Flair? Surely Vince realizes that it is in his best financial interest to put Flair in the match. Maybe they really donít want to tarnish what happened last year because they think it is so special, and it was special but if Flair came back for one match and really took it to Jericho in a physical blood and guts way, that would be pretty special too. Let him go out a winner.
TIM BARTLET: WOW Alan what a great example of how IMPORTANT Ric Flair still is to the wrestling world a year after he walked away from the sport. Alan was apparently not going to order wrestlemania until Ric Flair persuaded him to order it by his unparalled talent on the mic and when he got brutally attacked everyone wants to see him get revenge right??----Nobody gets one over on the Naitch and walks away unharmed,Chris Jericho is going to get a complete and utter Ass Kicking courtesy of the Nature Boy and i can't wait!! Wooooooooooooooooooo
JASON: I AM JUST ONE OF MANY WRESTLING FANS WHO TOTALLY QUIT WATCHING WWE WHEN RIC FLAIR RETIRED. EVEN WITH RIC WWE WAS GOING DOWN WITH SUCKY STORYLINES BUT AT LEAST WITH RIC WE HAD A OLD SCHOOL GUY WHO MADE US THINK OF THE WAY WRESTLING USED TO BE AND STILL SHOULD BE TODAY. I DON'T MEAN TO TALK DOWN TO GUYS LIKE SHAWN MICHAELS AND THE UNDERTAKER BECAUSE THEY ARE GOOD BUT TO BE TRUTHFUL WITHOUT RIC FLAIR ON THE PROGRAM I REALLY DON'T CARE IF I SEE OR MISS RAW. BUT IF RIC IS GOING TO BE ON THE SHOW ONCE IN A WHILE I WILL TRY TO TUNE IN WHEN HE IS ON THERE BUT WHEN HE IS NOT I REALLY DON'T CARE MUCH ABOUT IT.
FRANK: Awesome Idea Joseph. Dude what a Idea man!!! Woooo I love your scenario and I think it would work with flying colors.You have a great future storyline that wwe should do with Chris Jericho and Ric Flair.I love that Idea Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
JOSH B: I would like to see Flair and Jericho go at it in a cage but i think all the Flair fans will be happy because sometime soon Chris Jericho is going to get his clock cleaned by the "FN" man. Keep in mind that Flair don't have to come out of retirement to whip Jericho's ass!!
ROBERT: This article proves why Nascar hired Ric Flair to be their Honorary Race Director in Charlotte for the All Star Race. They want higher ratings and they are looking for Ric Flair to get them what they want.

TV ratings down for Bristol Race and the season

TV ratings for the Sprint Cup Series race at Bristol, Tenn., were down significantly from last year, continuing a downward trend through the seriesí first five races of the NASCAR season.

According to Nielsen Media Research, Sunday's race received a final 4.5 national rating on Fox, down 18 percent from the 5.5 rating one year ago.

Through the first five Cup races of the season, Fox's weekly TV ratings are down 11 percent. The number of households are down 10 percent and viewers down 12 percent from last season.


DAVE HERNDON: WOOOO I AM READY FOR WRESTLEMANIA AND THE JERICHO/LEGENDS MATCH, I KNOW FLAIR WON'T OFFICIALLY BE IN THE MATCH BUT I GUARANTEE EVERYONE READING THIS THAT HE WILL GET INVOLVED AND WHEN HE DOES CHRIS JERICHO'S A#S WILL BE GRASS!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
FLAIR4LIFE: Great posts guys,everyone with half a brain knows how important Ric is.It don't surprise me that people are ordering a ppv only because of him.I have not ordered a ppv since his retirement match against Shawn Michaels so what does that tell you?
DALE CLARK: Ladies and Gentlemen what is the most legendary catch-phrase ever in wrestling??   I got the answer.  "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"
MARTY: I will make this as simple as i can.The bottom line is that "Nature Boy" Ric Flair is the single most important professional wrestler that has ever stepped into a wrestling ring, he is timeless, his matches are classics, his interviews are memorable and entertaining, and most important he is the kindest most caring human being ever in wrestling. He has ALWAYS had time for his fans and that my friends is what makes a true Role Model. "Long Live Ric Flair!!
KEVIN: Me and three or four of my friends usually get together and order a wrestling ppv once in a while.We ordered wrestlemania last year to see the Naitch vs.Shawn Michaels and we didn't order another ppv until TNA's Genesis from Charlotte in January.We are ordering wrestlemania this year because we are dying to see Ric and the legends(mainly Ric) destroy Chris Jericho. Payback is a bitch Jericho remember that, but we also know that wrestling is scripted and that in real life Jericho worships Flair but in the storyline i still want Flair to get him back. Go get 'em Flair! Wooo!
TERRY: thanks for that info about nascar.my brother is a nascar fan and he says it is boring as crap anymore and he don't even tune in anymore i don't think."the all star race in may would be a good time to tune in because we will get to see the nature boy style and profile all over lowes motor speedway in charlotte" woooooo i would like to see ric strut around the track going woooooooo
EDDIE BIEHN: I am going to a local bar to watch Wrestlemania and i am very jazzed up about getting to see the Nature Boy Ric Flair get Chris Jericho back for what happened on Raw last monday:Does anyone know if Ric will be on Raw this monday?I need to know if i should watch it or not so i would like to know if he will be appearing.
CASEY: i laughed when chris jericho was talking trash to ric flair on raw because i remember listening to a online interview with him several years ago and when they asked him who was his inspiration to get into wrestling his answer was ric flair.you fans are correct Jericho does respect ric flair but this angle was done to get wrestlemania a higher buyrate and leave it to flair to spearhead that.
RICHARD (MESSAGE TO PEOPLE ON THE MESSAGE-BOARD) ALL THE FLAIR FANS WANT HIM TO GET BACK IN THE RING AND WRESTLE CHRIS JERICHO BUT THE FACT IS THAT MCMAHON HAS ALREADY TRIED TO TALK FLAIR INTO COMING BACK AND WRESTLING AGAIN AND RIC SAID HE DON'T WANT TO DO IT.I THINK RIC IS IN A VERY GOOD PLACE IN HIS LIFE AND PLUS HOW MANY OF THE FLAIR FANATICS OUT THERE THINK THAT RIC ACTUALLY HAS THE TIME TO COME BACK AND WRESTLE EVEN IF HE WANTED TO???

FLAIR FANATICS HE DON'T HAVE TIME; HE HAS GOT COMMITMENTS LINED UP OUTSIDE OF WRESTLING AND HE DON'T HAVE TIME TO WRESTLE AGAIN.I LOVE THE MESSAGE-BOARD BUT SOME OF THE FANS ARE SO WRONG IN WANTING RIC TO DO SOMETHING THAT HE HIMSELF DON'T WANT TO DO.THAT IS NOT BEING A TRUE FAN. A TRUE FAN IS WANTING WHAT RIC WANTS. OK???


PAUL WESTBROOK: Basically the attack by Chris Jericho on Ric was as Michael Troll so elloquently puts it, a "vintage Ric Flair moment". I think while it does draw a certain amount of interest to the 3 on one handicap tag match I do feel that Ric deserves a far better storyline, but remember who we are dealing with. Vince and his stupid creative writing team. I really feel at times Vince is basically out to destroy what the legacy of Ric Flair means to the wrestling fan as a whole. That's why i dont watch WWE as "religiously" as I used to. Because I find WWE to be garbage entertainment and a bastardization of what wrestling is supposed to represent. Im sure a lot of you fellow Fanatics feel the same way that I do.  That Ric is so much better than what WWE comes up with for him to do, and as long as Ric is there in any shape or form the unfortunate fact is they'll keep putting him in near ridiculous storylines that will undermine what he really means to the sport. Me I'd rather remember Ric Flair for the wonderous wrestling career he had. Everything else afterward just pales in comparison. So that folsk is my take. Any opinions? 
GAVIN: Shawn Michaels was recently interviewed and he was asked about if he would have a problem with Ric Flair stepping back into the ring again and as you can see his answer was no.

Since this is wrestling and we kind of know how retirements go on most occasions, did you ever think Ric was going to come back and have another match?

Shawn Michaels = I donít know. That was something Ė put it this way. We all know, if youíre a friend of Ric Flair which I am, you know him and you know how he is about this line of work. So, I know that might be a struggle for him. And thatís OK. You canít be somebodyís friend and put requirements on it and I donít do that to him and I wouldnít do it to him. My job was to go out there and, in my mind, believe that it was going to be his last and do the absolute best job I could to pay tribute to that and honor that and thatís what I did. Ric Flair is a grown man and he can make his decisions and I would still be his friend no matter what decision he made.


LEWIS: Richard is right Flair fanatics.Ric Flair is way too busy in his life outside wrestling to ever come back. The man is getting offers all the time and most of them are making him more money then he ever made wrestling so can you blame him for not coming back? hell no you can't!
JAMES: I DON'T WANT TO OFFEND ANYBODY THAT STILL WATCHES WWE RAW BUT I COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THE SHOW IF RIC FLAIR AIN'T ON IT.TO ME IT FREAKING SUCKS WITHOUT THE MAN.IF RIC FLAIR IS NOT ON RAW THEN I WILL NEVER WATCH IT.WWE RAW SUCKS WITHOUT THE NAITCH!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
JC: I like the new "Flair in Connecticut" interview with Flair Webmaster Dave.That is a great article.Keep up the great work!!
RODNEY (NOT ORDERING WRESTLEMANIA) I respect Ric Flair and part of me doesnít want him to wrestle anymore either because I believe that his departure last year was special.  But if he ainít going to wrestle, I wished he had not been involved with this angle at all.  He is selling a match for three guys that we all know he could out-perform in the ring. We all want him involved in televised wrestling again simply because we respect him and know him as the most entertaining wrestler in the history of the business and because he is so much a part of our own histories growing up with him.  But letís put him in quality angles, throw away the scripts and let him be Ric Flair. 

Flair off the cuff is ten times more creative than all of WWE Creative combined.  Let him do his thing.  I am not going to order Wrestlemania because I have no interest in seeing Flair stand outside of the ring and hope for him to get involved somewhere in the match.  He has been the one who has generated all the heat with Jericho and he should be the one in the ring. I am going to wait til it comes out on DVD and then I will order it so I can see all of the Hall of Fame Ceremony because I know his introduction of Steamboat will be greatly edited for TV and I want to see all of it. 

I will then see what involvement if any he had in the circus of a match that the WWE has come up with.  I wished he was in the match.  I understand why he isnít, but I just donít care for the angle with him generating heat for these other guys whom you havenít heard a whole lot from since the angle started.  I wish there was some way to calculate what the PPV would have sold if he was in the match itself and compare it with what it will be with him on the outside. 


JOHN: I didn't see Raw last night and i'm glad i didn't because Ric Flair wouldn't there.
NICOLAS: David i got some things to get off my chest and if you have a problem with any of my language in this e-mail feel free to edit it because you are the webmaster and it's your website but i am angry right now at this stupid ignorant ass Ric Flair/Legends Chris Jericho storyline for wrestlemania. This storyline is a classic example of the difference between Ric Flair's storylines of the 80's and the storylines of today.I am so damn sick and tired of wwe and their dumb ass storylines that don't make any sence that i am through watching wwe forever(other then Flair) and i am dead serious. I pray that Ric Flair leaves that stinking hell hole wwe and goes to tna wrestling.I know Vince Russo is in tna now and he didn't book Ric Flair that well in the dying days of wcw but surely he could do a better job then Vince McMahon and wwe is doing now.

There was a post on the message board a few days ago David and it was right on the money because they discussed why is Ric Flair the one plugging and promoting the match at wrestlemania when he ain't even in the match?? and why in the hell is it a three on one match? how damn stupid is that? the match should be a one on one encounter. Flair is the one selling the match(just like the post says) and i think it makes the legends(Steamboat/Snuka and Piper look like three dumb bafoons because they can't even do a promo to sell their own match. I realize that none of the legends has the microphone ability that Flair does but that shoudn't matter.

The Flair storyline this year at wrestlemania is one of the most pathetic things i have seen in a long time. In my opinion the buyrate for wrestlemania this year will tank compared to years past and some of it will be because of the lackluster matches on the card but the biggest reason will be this "fn" incompetent awful lame brain storyline between Flair/Legends and Jericho. I have not talked to one person who likes this wrestlemania storyline for Flair - NOT ONE PERSON - they all say it sucks. Vince McMahon is supposed to be intelligent but intelligent people don't book dumb sh#t like he is booking at wrestlemania.

My message to wwe and to Vince McMahon and his writing team is "SCREW YOU" you bunch of incompetent jack asses i guaranDAMNtee you that i will NOT be ordering wrestlemania and wasting my money on a bunch of dumb sh#t that you call wrestling that is so far from wrestling it ain't even funny.wrestling to me is two men in a ring wrestling each other for a purpose and giving their heart and soul to every person that is in the crowd (like Flair vs. Steamboat) not some screwed up garbage that absolutely makes no sence whatsoever. I am a true wrestling fan and i am tired of being cheated as a fan by wwe's dumb idiotic storylines.

I would rather see 60 year old Ric Flair wrestle 56 year old Ricky Steamboat at wrestlemania then the storyline they got in place for this year. at least if it was Flair vs. Steamboat it would serve a purpose and would give the crowd a reason to watch because of their storied history together. the three on one match with Flair outside the ring is as stupid as it gets and McMahon should know better. I think when all this is said and done and it is over and McMahon sees the wrestlemania buyrate plunge compared to years past he will regret this dumb storyline he put in place.

Ric Flair hadn't you made more money without wwe then with them? if so then please get the hell out. wwe don't deserve a legend like Ric Flair on their roster. Ric Flair is too good a person to even be associated with morons like wwe. Ric please go to tna or just continue with your video game promotion and your autograph signings and all the other stuff you got going on and say screw wwe. my final message to Vince Mcmahon and wwe is Long Live Ric Flair and wwe and Vince McMahon can go to Hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


CHUCK: The new Flair in Connecticut article was a great read. My favourite part of the article is when Flair said that it didn't matter if there was 200 people or 2,000 people there to watch him perform because he still put on the same show every night.I don't thaink many of the superstars in the biz today feel that same way! That is what seperates Flair from the wrestlers we see today. Flair respects the fans more and that is why he always put on a heck of a show and he never changed his performance based on how many people were there to see him.How can we as a fan not respect that?
RODNEY: Wow, Nicholas has a real ax to grind with WWE and I think he is right on for the majority of his post. The comment about making Steamboat, Snuka, and Piper look like buffoons was spot on. They look like clowns. I think the whole thing makes all of the legends, including Ric Flair look bad. The whole reason for the feud seems trumped up and artificial. Jericho isnít convincing or believable with his beef against the legends.

Flair has been way too choreographed and scripted and thus less believable. I know he loves McMahon and appreciates the respect that he gets from him, but I have heard him say that the one thing he doesnít like about what wrestling has become is the fact that they have writers who put words into wrestlersí mouths in order to sell stuff.

I can understand the need for this with some of the personality-poor talent that they have on the roster these days but you donít need to have a one size fits all approach with Ric Flair. What writer in the world understands in the ring and out of the ring wrestling psychology better than Ric Flair? I would put him on a short list with Dusty Rhodes as the best mic-men in the history of the business, and they were great because they understood how to connect with the emotions of the fans and get people to buy a ticket.

I will be glad when the angle is over and of course I would love to see Naitch on TV more often but turn the man loose and quit putting words in his mouth and quit involving him in stupid story lines that make no sense and that are beneath him. Show him a little more respect.


SAMMY: Hey fans here is the preview for TNA Impact this Thursday night, and I agree that Flair should go to TNA. My opinion on all this Jericho/Flair wrestlemania storyline stuff is that Flair has accomplished everything a man can accomplish in WWE. He probably had the most memorable wrestlemania moment we will ever witness last year when he wrestled Shawn Michaels and the night before he had a memorable Hall Of Fame speech and then the night after wrestlemania he had the greatest moment I've ever seen in a pro wrestling ring when all his peers came down to the ring and saluted him for his legendary career so why shouldn't he try something completely different and go to TNA wrestling?? I don't think he will do it but it sure would be nice if he did. Can you imagine the shock it would generate throughout pro wrestling if he went to TNA? Nicolas you are taking things a little too seriously but I agree with most of your post.

ROBBIE J: Gee Wiz Nicolas what a mouthful!! You guys have heard this before but here It goes again.   I think Vinny Mac Is conducting himself the way he Is because of Ratings. Vinny Mac Is a power hungry businessman who Is consumed and possessed with Ratings. He wants them anyway he can get them and he knows that the best way to get them Is to have Ric Flair on your roster no matter how incoherent and stupid the storylines he puts in place for him are. What I think Vince needs to realize Is that people are not going to spend their hard earned money to see Flair be in some Ridiculous angle that makes not only wwe but Flair look weak! Flair Is retired but there are so many ways Vince could use him that would be beneficial to wwe,Vince and to Flair so It makes me wonder why don't he do some of them instead of the bonehead things we see today on wwe tv.
BROCK: All these strong opinions on the messageboard but the opinion i want to hear from is the Webmaster's. David what is your opinion on Flair's storyline for this years WrestleMania? I really would like to know!!!!
TIM B: Hey wrestling fans,internet wrestling columnist Dan Wahlers has previewed Wrestlemania and his article has to be read by all wrestling fans. All the buzz on the message board about why wwe is falling apart is explained in great detail by Mr.Wahlers. Every wrestling fan should read this article. Webmaster David please post this article on your message board and thanks my friend.

Wrestlemania 25 Preview

As the late Gorilla Monsoon used to say, the time for the talking has ended.  After weeks of build up and anticipation, Wrestlemania 25 is this Sunday from Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas.  This will be the second time for Houston hosting a Wrestlemania.  The previous one in 2001, Wrestlemania 17, is considered by many to be one of the greatest Wrestlemaniaís of all-time.  Donít be placing any bets on this yearís show reaching that level.  The card for the show is disappointing and underwhelming, and the build up for the show has been mediocre at best, weak in most cases.

I have seen every Wrestlemania, and Iíve watched most of them live on PPV.  I can honestly say that there havenít been many that I have cared about less going into the show than this yearís show.  And thatís a real shame, because Wrestlemania is supposed to be the big time, itís the biggest show in wrestling every year.  Itís the culmination of WWEís year.  Itís supposed to be where you see the best matches, and the biggest moments.  Unfortunately, I just donít have that feeling going into this Sundayís show.  

It doesnít have that Wrestlemania feeling.  It feels like any other PPV you might see on the WWE schedule throughout the year.  And this might have worked for any other PPV, but Wrestlemania has never been any other PPV.  Iíve been waiting for weeks, during the build up for the show, for everything to finally kick into high gear.  And they got there at certain points over the past six weeks, but those moments were few and far between.

The issue about lack of long-term planning that has been plaguing the company for a number of years really became the main issue this year.  And the blame for most of that belongs at the feet of the boss, Vince McMahon.  I canít even fathom what it must be like for the members of the WWE creative team to work for a man like Vince.  You spend so many hours and days working on a show, putting all the storylines, promos, matches and vignettes together, only to have Vince wake up one morning, and decide he wants to scrap all the ideas, and start from scratch.  That has to be incredibly frustrating.  

You canít plan anything long-term when you fly by the seat of your pants like that.  Thatís why there were so many changes to the Wrestlemania card in the weeks leading up to the show, and why the card wasnít really finalized until a week or two ago.  It really makes me nostalgic for the days of my youth, when you would know the entire Wrestlemania card not weeks but months in advance.  When you conduct business in that manner, the entire product suffers, and it has suffered this year.

It has also suffered from perhaps the biggest problem of all, which is the lack of new stars being created.  That problem runs deep from the top of the company all the way through the flawed developmental system they have in place.  Thatís why you get the same wrestlers on top year after year, and the same stale, recycled matches.  They tried with a guy like CM Punk.  He was given a big push over the summer, winning the World Heavyweight Championship.  But because the ratings and PPV buys didnít instantly shoot through the roof and the fans didnít necessarily react right away as strongly as the company felt they should, the push for Punk was abandoned, and heís right back in the same position he was in at last yearís Wrestlemania.  Talk about spinning your wheels.  The company has no patience, and they have no long-term vision.  And all of that adds up to a subpar Wrestlemania lineup that they are having the nerve to ask people to pay $54.95 for standard def, and $64.95 for high def.  


GREG THOMPSON: WOW Nicholas!!! You did get a lot off your chest and i agree with everything you said.Wrestlemania this year SUCKS and you couldn't pay me to watch it.WWE should be ashamed of themselves for booking a pathetic ppv like Mania this year.

TRAVIS: EVERYBODY WHO GETS ON THE MESSAGE BOARD WITH COMMENTS ABOUT RIC FLAIR AND WRESTLEMANIA IS EXACTLY RIGHT.IT IS TRAGIC WHAT WWE HAS BECOME AND THE ONLY THING AT WRESTLEMANIA THIS YEAR THAT I REALLY WANT TO SEE IS THE LEGENDS MATCH WITH THE NAITCH IN THEIR CORNER AGAINST CHRIS JERICHO AND THAT MATCH IS BOOKED TERRIBLY JUST LIKE YOU FANS SAY IT IS BUT FLAIR IS FLAIR AND AS LONG AS I CAN SEE HIM THAT IS ALL THAT COUNTS RIGHT?
ERIC: Woooo at WrestleMania Chris Jericho is gonna find out why The "Nature Boy" Ric Flair is still the "Best Thing Goin Today. Wooooooooooo
WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: Hello everyone, Sorry for the lack of e-mails I have posted on the Message Board in the last two days but I have been very busy and away from the computer..............to everyone who has e-mailed me lately don't worry I will post your messages on the board as soon as I have time...................... Thanks for your patience!!.................Webmaster, David Matthews..................
RODNEY: I didnít order Wrestlemania but checked out the results on WWE.com and saw how the match with Jericho played out. I think using Mickey Rourke to exact revenge on Jericho for beating the legends and knocking down Ric Flair with whatever move he used on him made the four Hall of Famers look weak. An actor does to Jericho what supposedly four WWE Hall of Famers couldnít do? Come on folks. Such an angle made all four of the legends look bad, and that is yet another reason to criticize this angle. It was poor attempt by WWE creative to be creative and again they did so at the expense of the Greatest of All-Time, The Nature Boy Ric Flair, and three of his peers. Very simply, I think these kind of angles are beneath Naitch and disrespect his stature in the business. If this is how Naitch is going to be used in the future, I am not interested in watching it and hope he declines this sort of thing in the future.
SAMMY: Not only do I have the TNA Impact preview for this week but Dave if you don't mind would you please post another article for me for the message board. A group of people are having a video contest to meet Ric Flair that the fans will enjoy so please post that article too and thanks again Dave and i love the new page about the new National Champion North Carolina Tar Heels. Roy Williams is the best coach in College Basketball and the Tar Heels Rule because they are the Champions of Basketball.

CHRIS BLEVINS: I went to the Hall Of Fame Ceremony Saturday and there is no way in Hell that it was a sell-out like Vince McMahon is saying it was.I have read several websites say that it was a sell-out but it coudn't have been because there were at least 1,000 empty seats if not more.I am tired of McMahon and the media lying all the time, usually i can't prove it but this one i can because i was in the building.Shame on you Vince McMahon.Last year when Flair got inducted the place sold out in a few days and this year they couldn't give all the seats away and then they lie about it. That is Pathetic!!! WWE SUCKS!!!
TIM: JUST LIKE I THOUGHT THE ONLY THING GOOD AT WRESTLEMANIA WAS THE SHAWN MICHAELS UNDERTAKER MATCH. EVERYTHING ELSE WAS BORING. THE LEGENDS/JERICHO MATCH COULD HAVE BEEN GOOD BUT THEN THEY SCREW IT UP WITH KINDERGARTEN BOOKING. IT WAS THE MOST BORING WRESTLEMANIA I HAVE SEEN IN MANY YEARS.
MICHAEL L: Wrestlemania wouldn't much to brag about this year but at least Mickey Rourke knocked Jericho out and they played Flair's entrance music as Flair and Rourke embraced in the ring as Jericho ran from them. Mickey Rourke is a big Flair fan but ain't everybody?? Woooooooooooo
ERIC: I Wish Ric Flair would REFUSE to do any business with Vince Mcmahon. Mcmahon never knew how to use Flair and that is the truth.I wish Flair would let his kid(Reid) go to tna before wwe because he will move up the ladder quicker in tna then he ever will wwe. Damn i love Flair but i don't understand why he is so commited to Mcmahon.
RICK: DAVID THANKS MAN FOR THE TRIBUTE PAGE TO "CAROLINA"  I HAVE BEEN A HUGE "CAROLINA" FAN SINCE '82 WHEN MICHAEL JORDAN HIT THE WINNING SHOT TO BEAT GEORGETOWN FOR THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. GREAT PIC OF JORDAN TOO.  JORDAN IS LIKE RIC FLAIR. FLAIR IS THE BEST EVER IN HIS SPORT AND MICHAEL JORDAN IS THE BEST EVER IN HIS SPORT. MICHAEL JORDAN IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE A CAROLINA TAR HEEL AND THE BEST PLAYER OF ALL TIME  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
FLAIR TARHEEL COUNTRY: Hello from a Heel of a Flair fan! Below are some stats from the Carolina vs Dook rivalry on tobacco road!

UNC vs Dook 1st meeting Jan. 24th 1920.....Final Score UNC 36 Dook 25
Last meeting UNC 79 Dook 71...... UNC current win streak against Dook is 3
UNC has played Dook 227 times and UNC leads series all time against Dook 130-97
Post season meetings outside of ACC was once back in 1971
in the NIT....Final Score was UNC 73 Dook 67
ACC Regular season champs...UNC has 27 titles and Dook has 18
NCAA Final Fours....UNC 18 times and Dook 14 times
NCAA CHAMPIONS: UNC has won 5 NCAA Championships and
also won a National Championship back in 1924 before the NCAA
was involved in college basketball (which would make 6 National titles)
The 1924 as well as the 1957 season UNC was undefeated!
Dook has never went undefeated and never will (LOL)
UNC's National Championship was in 1924 and their NCAA championship years was 1957,1982,1993,2005,and 2009!
Dook was in 1991,1992, and 2001 but they have failed to make
it past the sweet sixteen since 2001 and in this year's NCAA tournament the Carolina Tar Heels passed Kentucky to become the Winningest NCAA Tournament Team of all time with 102 Career Wins.

Carolina has won 1,984 Games in their Legendary history and Dook has won 1,876 times which means Carolina has won over 100 more Games then Dook has, and Carolina's Career Winning Percentage is 73.8% and Dook's is 69.7% and the last time I did the math 73.8% is higher then 69.7%

Carolina has also had more Successful players in the NBA then Dook has, and a guy named Michael Jordan didn't play for Dook but he played for Carolina and he is the undisputed Greatest Basketball Player that has ever picked up a basketball bar none!! and for all people wondering what JJ Redick is doing these days he is a great BENCH WARMER struggling to get playing time because he SUCKS in the NBA.

So there you have the facts and the stats, UNC is without a doubt the best ACC team of all time and leads Dook in all these areas.

Tyler Hansbrough is the leading ACC scorer of all time by breaking JJ (Crybaby) Redick's Record and the Heels broke records in the NCAA championship game last week such as TY Lawson with a record 8 steals and the most points scored at halftime with 55 as well as the biggest lead at halftime at 21 points (55-34)

My point you ask? And what does this have to do with Ric Flair?

Simply put, The best wrestler and the best college basketball team.

Ric Flairs favorite team is UNC and when they won the National Title he along with all the "Flair Tarheel Nation" were going WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!


BRIAN: HEY WRESTLING FANS WHO IN THE HELL DOES VINCE MCMAHON THINK HE IS? RUMOR IS THAT VINCE WAS A LITTLE UPSET AT RIC FLAIR FOR AGREEING TO APPEAR AT A ROH (RING OF HONOR) TAPING A FEW DAYS AGO. ROH (RING OF HONOR) IS A UP AND COMING WRESTLING PROMOTION AND FLAIR IS TRYING TO HELP THEM ALONG BY AGREEING TO APPEAR AT SEVERAL OF THEIR SHOWS. MY PROBLEM WITH THIS IS THAT RIC DON'T HAVE A SIGNED CONTRACT WITH VINCE MCMAHON SO IF THERE IS NO CONTRACT SIGNED BETWEEN THEM THEN WHAT IN THE HELL DOES MCMAHON THINK HE IS DOING? HE HAS NO SAY OVER WHAT RIC DOES DOES HE?? THIS MAN HAS A EGO PROBLEM. I MIGHT COULD UNDERSTAND IT IF RIC HAD A CONTRACT SIGNED WITH THEM BUT HE DON'T. THAT IS WHY FLAIR LEFT WWE IS BECAUSE OF STUPID CRAP LIKE THIS. RIC FLAIR HAS MADE MORE CASH IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS BY HIMSELF WITHOUT MCMAHON THEN HE DID BEING EMPLOYED BY HIM. VINCE MCMAHON MIND YOUR OWN DAMN BUSINESS. RIC FLAIR IS DOING GREAT WITHOUT YOU.
JOHN: I read that Flair turned down another offer from Vinny Mac to be General Manager of Smackdown. Don't you fans probably think that the reason he turned him down was because Flair is making big money on his own without wwe and Mcmahon?
RYAN: RFGOLDS.COM IS THE BEST WRESTLING WEBSITE ON THE INTERNET. WEBMASTER DAVE GREAT JOB KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
MARK HELMS: I am not a big basketball fan but Congrats to Carolina for winning the National Championship and even though i am not a fan it would take a blind person to not realize that they are the best team.
FLAIRFOREVER: WOOOOOO Diamonds are Forever and so is the Nature Boy Ric Flair!!! WOOOOOOOO!
RANDY: Go Carolina Go Woooooooo great new page about the new National Champions!!!
CRYSTAL: I love the Naitch and the Tar Heels both. Congrats goes out to Carolina!! Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!
FLAIR DESERVES BETTER: I am still hoping that Ric goes to TNA one day."If Flair Is going to be used In Ignorant storylines like the Legends-Jericho storyline at wrestlemania then I hope Flair never goes back to wwe"   "That storyline was awful and wrestlemania was awful too"  Flair Deserves Better.
ROBERT: Sean Radican from Pro Wrestling Torch magazine wrote a article about the upcoming wwe draft and he makes some valid points.His main point in the article is that nobody cares about the upcoming draft because all the wrestlers switch all the time without the draft so why have one?? Sean's article is included in this e-mail Webmaster Dave so if you don't mind put it on your message board. Thanks!

Sean Radican = I don't care about the draft coming up on Raw this Monday. I don't care to analyze what might happen if wrestler "A" goes to show "B" or wrestlers "B" goes to show "C."

Now you might ask something like: "Sean, why the negative attitude? The draft is fun, plus it lasts a three whole hours! That's my entire night and I don't even have to figure out what to do the hour before Raw starts like usual."

Blah.

I've seen every wrestler on every show in every possible combination with every possible commentator calling their matches. I don't care if Jim Ross goes to Raw or Michael Cole goes to Smackdown of even if Josh Matthews goes to ECW and Matt Striker goes to Smackdown.

I may be forgetting a few names, but bare with me.

With the competition annihilated, all of the real surprises are gone. I've already seen Christian wrestle on another show. There aren't really any wrestlers jumping back and forth. The brand split is a total sham. It really just doesn't matter.

In the end, we'll still see everyone we want to see on Raw even if they're exiled to Smackdown. Most of us get SCI-FI, so if we want to watch fun guys like Jack Swagger and Evan Bourne every week, we can still watch them, but even they usually show up on Raw a whole heck of a lot.

It's one thing to promote a draft, but all WWE is doing is promoting a sham until they keep the wrestlers apart and make encounters from wrestlers on different brands special again. Just look what happened with HBK and Taker at WrestleMania. 


JAMIE MASON: David i know it seems like people send you anti Vince Mcmahon posts often but i have never done it but tonight it is my turn to join them.I got some things about Mcmahon that has pissed me off lately.First off Mcmahon has not got Ric on his roster virtue of a contract in writing.To make it simple Ric is a FREE AGENT and Mcmahon is still trying to control Ric by trying to talk him into no showing a recent Ring Of Honor wrestling event.

Brian is right who in the hell does Vince Mcmahon think he is? Does he think he is GOD himself and he controls the world??  Give me a break!! and who seen the WWE HOF ceremony last Sat. night on USA network?what a disgrace that was.it was only a hour show and with the commercials and the heavy promoting of Wrestlemania they only had time to show the people getting inducted for a few minutes.Flair only got a few brief minutes minutes to tell about his respect for Steamboat and what a honor it was to induct him and then Steamboat only got a few minutes to talk and then for god's sake they didn't even show any of Kevin Von Erich receiving the HOF award in honor of his family and they didn't show any of Dory and Terry Funk getting inducted either.They did show Stone Cold but for only a few minutes.

They wasted valuable time by showing Mean Gene Okerlund and Jerry Lawler when they could have showed the footage of the Von Erichs and the Funks. I was SOOO Pissed off i turned the channel. I found out that Vince Mcmahon himself personally told all the inductees this year to shorten their HOF speeches. What reason did he have for doing that?? I think i know, i think he did it were he could spend more time promoting Wrestlemania because Vince Mcmahon is not about trying to pay respect to the legends because all the cares about is Buyrates and Money and Ratings and to Hell with everything else.

I have always stood up for Vince but NOT AGAIN BECAUSE I AM THROUGH WATCHING WWE FOREVER, i will painfully support Flair when he is on wwe programming but that will be the ONLY time i will watch their show. Vince Mcmahon has screwed me over for the last time!!!!!!


ERIC: YES JOHN I BET THE REASON RIC TURNED DOWN WWE'S OFFER TO BE GM OF SMACKDOWN WAS BECAUSE THE OFFER WAS WAY TOO LOW. RIC WOULD LOSE MONEY IF HE TOOK THE OFFER AND HE WOULD BE A FOOL TO DO THAT AND LET'S DON'T FORGET THAT IF RIC DID TAKE THE OFFER HE WOULD BE UNABLE TO DO ALL THE AUTOGRAPH SIGNINGS THAT HE HAS BEEN DOING FOR THE LAST 8 MONTHS.
ROB: I am a Duke Basketball fan but I do admit that Carolina is the better and more successful team of all time and Carolina is ahead of Duke in all the areas that "Flair Tarheeel Country" discussed. Yes Carolina has won more National Championships even though i don't like admitting it.
ADAM: Reading the posts on the message board makes me wish that Ric would go to TNA cause TNA is on fire here lately with record ratings.
FRANK: VINCE MCMAHON IS A DAMN MORON IF HE THINKS THAT RIC FLAIR IS GOING TO SIGN A CONTRACT FOR 250 GRAND A YEAR. RIC FLAIR CAN MAKE 250 GRAND IN 3 OR 4 MONTHS SO WHY IN THE BLUE HELL WOULD HE SIGN A CONTRACT TO MAKE THAT SAME AMOUNT IN A FULL YEAR?? MCMAHON MAKES ABSOLUTLEY NO SENCE. VINCE MCMAHON IS OBVIOUSLY NOT AS SMART AS PEOPLE THINK HE IS. WHAT A IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!
SCOTT P: If Vinny Mac truly wants Ric Flair to sign a contract again he is gonna have to offer him a HELL of a lot more then 250 thousand a year.I think that offer is a slap in the face especially knowing how much dough Ric is making these days.Don't you Flair fanatics agree?
TIMOTHY (BREAKING DOWN MCMAHON'S OFFER TO FLAIR)

Let's add up the figures to see if McMahon's 250,000 a year request to Flair is a good offer or not.

Ric Flair makes 15,000 for each appearance he does and 30,000 for any overseas appearance

So for Ric Flair to reach 250,000 he would only need to make 17 appearances at the 15,000 range and 8 appearances in the 30,000 range but when you add up how many overseas dates he does he probably would only have to make about 12 to 13 appearances total between the two and he has made over 12 appearances in the last 3 months so he has probably made more money in signing autographs in the last three months then McMahon is offering him for a complete year.

Keep in mind that we are only talking about his autograph signings we are not taking in consideration that he has more activities going on then just signing autographs,he signed a deal with walmart and coco-cola and his deal with the red alert video game,and nascar is probably paying him some big money to be the honorary race director for the upcoming all star race in Charlotte and plus the deal he has with the trading card company too so with all that i would bet that Flair has made well over a million dollars of not more since he left wwe last August.

If the above reasons were not enough does any wrestling fan believe that if Ric signed a deal with wwe that McMahon would allow him to do all the other activities that have nothing to do with wrestling?? the answer is no and if he didn't then look at all the money that Flair would be losing. The bottom line is that Flair would be a JACK ASS to sign a wwe contract now. Maybe sometime later but not now.

BRUCE: 250 thousand is chump change Flair deserves at least double that amount.
JEREMY: TIMOTHY YOUR POST IS 100% RIGHT.NO WAY IN THE WORLD THAT VINNY MAC WOULD LET FLAIR DO ANYTHING IF IT DIDN'T INVOLVE WWE SO YES FLAIR WOULD BE A IDIOT TO SIGN THE CONTRACT.DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU GUYS BUT IT MAKES ME  TO KNOW THAT VINNY MAC IS NOT GETTING HIS WAY ON THIS ONE.HE THINKS HE CAN USE HIS POWER TO GET EVERYTHING HE WANTS BUT THIS TIME FLAIR IS GOT HIS NUMBER.   MCMAHON AND HOGAN HAVE TO HAVE THE TWO BIGGEST EGOS OF ALL TIME!!
KEVIN: hey timothy dude you're right. mcmahon is smoking some good stuff if he thinks that flair is going to give in to his crazy demands and sign a bogus contract. plus flair knows as clear as the nose on his face that if he put his name on the dotted line that he would be kissing all the money making deals he has lined up for himself goodbye.
BOBBY: WOOOOO I LOVE THE CAROLINA TAR HEELS AND THE NATURE BOY RIC FLAIR. CAROLINA IS THE NUMBER #1 TEAM IN BASKETBALL BECAUSE THEY WON THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP FOR THE 6TH TIME. I LOVE FLAIR TARHEEL COUNTRY'S POST, AND TO ALL THE DUKE PUKE AND COACH K(GAY) FANS OUT THERE HOW DOES IT FEEL TO KNOW THAT TYLER HANSBROUGH BROKE JJ "FAGGOT" REDICKS ALL TIME SCORING RECORD THIS YEAR AND THAT TYLER HANSBROUGH FINISHED HIS CAREER AT CAROLINA WITH A NATIONAL TITLE AND A UNDEFEATED 4-0 RECORD AT DURHAM?? COACH GAY MIGHT HAVE TO PASS OUT ON THE SIDELINES AGAIN OR FAKE ANOTHER BACK INJURY BECAUSE HE CAN'T STOP CAROLINA FROM WINNING MORE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS THEN PUKE HAS. CAROLINA HAS ALL THE RECORDS THAT COUNTS SO CHOKE ON THAT DUKE PUKE. CAROLINA IS YOUR DADDY AND JUST LIKE THE NAITCH SAYS WHETHER YOU LIKE THE TAR HEELS OR YOU DON'T LIKE THE TAR HEELS LEARN TO LOVE THE TAR HEELS BECAUSE THEY ARE THE BEST TEAM GOING TODAY. NATIONAL CHAMPIONS ALL NIGHT LONG. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
ALAN BEALS: Yes i also say to Hell with Vince McMahon!!!!  Ric Flair needs to do what Ric Flair wants to do and he don't have to listen to anybody and that includes Vince McMahon. Flair is more successful without him anyway!!!!!!!
JAY S: I watched TNA for the first time last week and I was surprised at how good the show was. I am now in agreement with everyone that Flair should go there. I think that TNA unlike WWE would work around Ric's hectic schedule and they would allow him to do things that WWE won't let him do.
KEITH: Thanks Timothy and man i fully agree with you about Vince McMahon.He don't want Flair to do anything but just be on wwe he don't want him to appear on a independent wrestling company or do any shoot interviews and i think that is pretty sh#tty if you ask me.He wouldn't even let Flair go to that nwa legends event last year.Vince has control issues with his wrestlers but the way he treats Flair is insane.Thanks again Timothy.I want to Thank Webmaster Dave for the messageboard, Dave i love reading the posts and everyone seems to know their Flair history. Wooooooo
DANNY: Jay S. i hadn't never thought of it that way but i think you're correct. the president of tna dixie carter lets her wrestlers work for independent federations often and she don't have a problem with it as long as they make their scheduled commitements to tna. if flair would quit being so freaking loyal to vince mcmahon and swallow his pride and go to tna then he probably could make even more money because i'm sure Dixie Carter would pay him real good but more importantly Ric would be free to sign any deal he wanted to outside of tna which is the main reason he left wwe because he couldn't do that while he was there. guys and gals Jay makes a fantastic point. i know Flair won't ever go to tna but if he did he might be making the best business decision in his life.
MICKY: DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER AND SO IS RFGOLDS.COM'S MESSAGE BOARD!! WOOOOOO
FLAIRRULES: i think the reason for the lack of posts on the message-board here lately about wrestlemania is because it wouldn't worth discussing because as we all know Flair's storyline sucked that night as did every other storyline on he show except for Undertaker vs. Michaels. I have read countless blogs about wrestlemania and everyone says the one match was the only thing good on the whole show.
CHUCK: As much as his fans would like for him to do it Ric Flair will never go to TNA wrestling, and Jay I agree a million percent with you that Dixie Carter and TNA would allow Ric to do a lot more outside ventures then Vinny Mac ever would but I still don't think Ric will go.
RYAN JENNINGS: I have read many guestbooks and Blogs and Message-Boards in the last ten years on many Web-Sites but none of them is as good as David's Message-Board on rfgolds.David I have loved Flair for 25 years and I really want to Thank You Sir for creating such a Wonderful Web-Site for all the Flair fanatics to enjoy.All the Flair fans owe you a huge Thanks.Last year after Wrestlemania we said "Thank You Ric, now i am saying "Thank You David"
GREG: No Ric Flair shouldn't sign a contract with Vince for 250 grand what he should do however is exactly what he is doing now.He is working with wwe on a pay per appearance deal which if i'm not mistaken means when Flair makes a appearance on Raw then Vince McMahon pays him on the spot right then. Flair should keep doing that because that way he can still get paid for making apearances for wwe and still do everything he wants to do outside of wwe and Vince can't stop him. "Ric has the best of both worlds right now and if he signed a contract with Vince he wouldn't have the best of both worlds"
DALE: Sting vs. Flair one more time would be awesome wouldn't it Flair fans??? I personally don't care about Vince McMahon either guys but he is smart enough to try his best to get Flair to sign a contract, he is smart enough to know that if you got the Naitch on your roster the ratings will increase so let's at least give him credit for that, i won't give him credit for much but i will give him credit for that.
NEIL PARKS: Great news "WOOOO" i am going to see the man tomorrow in Charleston and hopefully get his autograph and get a picture taken with him. I am very very excited to say the least. WOOOOOOOOO!
MIKE: The Nature Boy Ric Flair is the best professional wrestler to have ever laced up a pair of boots. End of Discussion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DEREK HOLBROOK: Yeah flairrules i didn't even order wrestlemania because the storyline with the legends including mainly flair and chris jericho was weak as hell and i was not going to waste my money on it.
N. MATHIS: Message for Sammy;; until you started your weekly posts on Dave's messageboard about tna's weekly previews I had never seen a full two hour broadcast of tna,but when I started reading posts on the messageboard about how good the show was I decided to watch it and wow I am happy I did,last weeks show was great and I am beginning to like it better then wwe.  thank you to everybody on the messageboard including Sammy who informed me about tna.I don't ever miss tna anymore thanks to people on the messageboa

BRIAN: Hey Naitch fans big news: The man received another Key to the City in Charleston, West Virginia yesterday.I read about it on a wrestling site and i knew that you Naitch fans would want to know the details so Webmaster Dave please post this on your message-board.

Jeremy Samples had this to say
Ric Flair had an autograph appearance at the Charleston Town Center Mall in Charleston, WV (Saturday) afternoon. The mayor gave Ric Flair the key to the city and recognized today as Ric Flair Day in Charleston. There were a few hundred people for autographs at, at least $40 per autograph. I heard that they brought him in for $35,000. Ric spoke after getting 'the regular city treatment', about how much he always enjoyed performing in Charleston, during the NWA/WCW days, and how he was glad he was able to come back.


CLINT JAMISON: Great Job David on your fantastic website. I read the message board all the time and i love the posts and all the updates. Woooooooo
SAMMY POST 1: Hey Fans i hope you Jeff Jarrett fans will pick up a copy of his new dvd that comes out tomorrow.Here is a preview of the dvd and Dave i will be e-mailing you again later with a review of the TNA ppv that is taken place tonight and please post that also on the board.

TNA DVD Review : Jeff Jarrett Ė King Of The Mountain

It's been literally years in the making, having been postponed many times before, but now TNA is ready to unleash a massive 4 disc DVD set focusing on the career of it's founder,the King of the Mountain Jeff Jarrett. Running over 11 hours featuring 25+ matches and segments from the TNA video library as well as an in depth documentary and old school 1980's Memphis wrestling footage, fans now have a source to learn about the life and career of Jeff Jarrett.

Following what has become TNA's standard DVD presentation, the main feature is presented with a mix of documentary chapters and full matchups. Looking at the documentary portion, It begins with Jeff Jarrett's days as a basketball star who had a passion for the
sport of professional wrestling. Being a son and grandson of wrestling promoters, Jeff recounts growing up with wrestling legends in his life who would pass through the Memphis territory including stories of the early day Sting, Ultimate Warrior and Randy Savage. Jarrett explains the Memphis wrestling scene at the time and what would lead to his first match. The early part of his career is covered fairly well including footage of the time that TNA acquired for the DVD. Interviews with the likes of Dutch Mantell, Sting, Scott Steiner, Jim Cornette and others offer insight of the time.

Moving away from the Memphis territory, Jarrett talks about Vince McMahon's revolution of the wrestling industry with the move from territory to national, which leads to chapters on his career in WCW and the WWF. For the most part his time in these companies is only touched on via the major events, ie his debut as a fake singer, his departure from the WWF and taking part in the WCW/NWo angle, his return to the WWF, the problems he had there and his eventual hold up of the company before his match with Chyna for the IC title. The documentary then moves onto the end of WCW and the effect it had on the stars and staff at the time, including touching on the incident from Bash at the Beach 2000 where Vince Russo cut a shoot promo on Hulk Hogan who's creative control card was causing too many problems in the company and in the locker room. Closing out his time in these companies is the death of Owen Hart. Jarrett tells the story of that night and reflects on his true friend's passing. Mick Foley and Jim Cornette also share thoughts in what is truly a touching chapter of the DVD.

As was touched on in the History of TNA Year 1 DVD, The summer of no worries is discussed, which was the time after WCW closed and everyone who didn't take or wasn't offered the WWE's buyout at the time sat at home collecting paychecks, which eventually led to the idea and creation of TNA. The ups and downs of the business of that first year is discussed, including what Jeff viewed as an insult when people said that they were nothing but a independent wrestling company. Meanwhile stars who were in the WWE at the time such as Angle, Booker and Foley share their thoughts on the opinions of those who were in the WWE at the time as to whether or not they thought the company could get off the ground.

Another highly emotional chapter looks at the final months of the life of Jill Jarrett. Jeff shows unbelievable strength discussing the time period, as does those who lived alongside Jarrett throughout it. You get a feel for just how much of a fighter Jill was, and how much of an impact it had on the company at the time.

The documentary portion rounds up with reflections on how big TNA has become, and thoughts on the future of the company as well as the future of Jarrett's career..

Match lineup consists of three 2002 matchups which are the battle royal to crown the first NWA TNA champion, vs Scott Hall from July, and vs Ron Killings in November. 2003 Matchups see Jarrett team with the Road Warriors to take on Triple X and Vince Russo in January, as well as teaming with Sting vs AJ
Styles and Sean Waltman from February, and vs Raven in April of that year. 2004 matchups include the king of the mountain from June, The ladder match with Jeff Hardy from July, and the Monty Brown matchup from December. 2005 Matchups are against Kevin Nash in February, and April's Lethal Lockdown. 2006 has June's King of the mountain, September's Fan Revenge matchup against Samoa Joe, and October's world title match against Sting from Bound For Glory. 2007 matchups are VS Robert Roode at Sacrifice and the Lethal Lockdown. While 2008 is represented by Jarrett's matchup against Kurt Angle at Bound For Glory. Also featured on the DVD are segments such as the attack of the tennesse titans from the early days of TNA, the attack on Hulk Hogan and the Jill Jarrett tribute.

Extras consist of classic 1980's Memphis wrestling footage including Jarrett's first on camera appearance as a referee, as well as his television debut against Tony Faulk, and 1987/88 bouts against Hector Guerrero, Jerry Lawler and in tag action with Bill Dundee against Cactus Jack and Gary Young. These are complete matchups uncut from original footage.

As eluded to, this DVD has been a long time coming. In this day and age very few big name stars from the 80's and 90's don't have at least 1 dvd dedicated to them or their career, and if they don't then one is on the horizon very soon. TNA had a lot to live up to with this DVD and they generally deliver. The classic Memphis footage is a very nice touch as its not only peppered throughout the DVD but is also featured uncut as extras. Meanwhile there could be a debate as to whether or not more could have been put into the chapters focusing in on Jarrett's time in the WWF and WCW. In one way I could understand that TNA would not want to spend time on their DVD talking in depth about what Jarrett did in other companies, but at the same time I would be interested to hear more about his thoughts on the feuds he had, the road stories from the time and
relationships with those he worked with. Ultimately this is a minor complaint as the massive amount of footage and documentary spread out over 4 discs is easily worth the 29.99$ price tag (and you can get it on Amazon for about $21.00)

ANTHONY: Oh My God what a unbelievable Promo by Ric Flair!!!! Wow Wow!! I am a Nascar fan and i know that they are struggling right now with their ratings being as low as they have ever been but all it takes is a promo like that by Ric Flair and their ratings will increase(at least for the All Star Race) that promo by Ric Flair is what i call a money promo, Flair has done it millions of times in his remarkable career, when a wrestling ppv from back in the 80's or 90's was struggling to put asses in seats then in comes the man to save the day and turn it into a sell-out all by running his mouth with unbelievable promos like the one on David's home page. Nobody can put asses in seats all by doing a promo like Ric Flair!! He is in a class by himself and Nascar came to the perfect person to help them get more ratings for the All Star Race and to sell out Lowes Motor Speedway. I watched that promo 6 times so far today because it is Bad To The Bone!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

DAVE KEATON: WOOOO THE NATURE BOY AND THE HOT ROD RULE WRESTLING--FLAIR AND PIPER TOGETHER AGAIN THIS TIME DOING A TAG TEAM SHOOT INTERVIEW THROUGH HIGHSPOTS-- DAMN I WILL BE PURCHASING THAT DVD AS SOON AS IT COMES OUT---FLAIR IS MY FAVOURITE WRESTLER EVER AND PIPER IS MY 2ND FAVOURITE--- LONG LIVE OLD SCHOOL FLAIR AND PIPER WOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CALVIN: I heard a rumor Flair fanatics that nascar is having trouble selling tickets for the all star race and if that's true then we all know why they hired Flair don't we????
TYSON: I agree Anthony what a promo by Flair, WHO ELSE CAN DO THAT?? NOBODY CAN DELIVER A PASSION FILLED PROMO LIKE FLAIR CAN.I LIKE THE NEW IDEA OF PUTTING A VIDEO ON THE HOME PAGE WEBMASTER DAVE BECAUSE IT CATCHES PEOPLE OFF GUARD AND THAT IS A GOOD THING.
EDDIE: Everyone wants to talk about Ric Flair being the best pro wrestler who ever lived and hell yeah that is true but remember he is also the best on the microphone that has ever lived also, if anyone don't believe that Flair is the best ever on the mic then please watch the video on the home page and your opinion will be changed. believe me!!!!
KRISTEN: nascar racing bores me and i hate it but the promo that Ric did for them even excited me and if something excited me about nascar then it has to be because of Ric Flair.Ric Flair is and always will be my man!! Whooooo!
JC: the piper flair shoot dvd should be very entertaining, dave is right "old school does rule" woooo
FLAIRTNARULES: TNA keeps getting better and better. i wactched the ppv sunday and it was very good. bobby lashley going there is great, i think he got tired of Vince Mcmahon's bull crap so he left,and rumor is that Tazz might also be going to TNA too because he got pissed off at Mcmahon and left wwe recently.and Jeff Hardy is not so happy about signing a contract extension so he is thinking about leaving wwe when his contract expires, he would be better off in Tna too so i hope he goes.
RICHARD: Boys and Girls after that Ric Flair nascar promo i guarantee everybody that the all-star-race will be a complete sell-out. God AlMighty what a promo by Ric Flair! that is how you put asses in seats Boys and Girls!

NATHANIEL: LOL TO NASCAR, LOL BECAUSE THEY SUCK WITH THEIR LOW RATINGS.YOU GUYS ARE RIGHT THOUGH THE ONE INTELLIGENT THING THEY DONE WAS HIRE THE NATURE BOY BECAUSE THE NAITCH CAN SPIKE RATINGS LIKE NO OTHER ATHLETE ALIVE!!!!!! WOOOO WOOOO WOOOOO WOOOOO WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
MICHAEL: I don't like Nascar racing one bit but after witnessing the Naitch do that promo it makes me want to go to Charlotte to see the race.What does that tell ya????????
PAUL VARGASON: Gosh tna is really moving up!! Bobby Lashley made a good decision to get away from Vinny Mac(wwe), now if our man Ric would take his kid Reid to tna and be his manager it would be the freaking absolute bomb!!!!
BOBBY: "The Man" was at the Carolina Hurricanes Hockey game other night and they even showed him on camera. Woooooo "The Man" is everywhere!! Woooooo!!
PATRICIA: My brother is going to the all star race to see Flair.  Everytime Ric has came around the area lately for a autograph signing my brother hadn't been able to go something has always happened so he decided to go to Charlotte to the race but he ain't going to see cars go around a track he is going to see the "Nature Boy"
JAY DOBBINS: Mirror Mirror on the Wall::: Who is the Greatest of them All?? Woooooo The "Nature Boy" That's Who!!! Woooooooooooooooooooooooooo
DEREK: I saw a interview with the Naitch at the hurricanes game on my news broadcast and he and the crowd was woooing and Flair was signing autographs and having a good time.
K. SIMMS: Question for all the "Flair" fans  "I don't think Naitch will ever go to tna but if he did what would all the fans want to see Ric do once he got there? I think that's a good question though it's highly unlikely he will ever appear on their show
MIKE VOIGHT: Flair is way too smart to get railroaded by Vince McMahon and his contract that ain't worth the paper it's written on because it's only for 250,000 when Flair makes that by moving his pinky finger, you fanatics are right Flair won't do it now. it's possible he might consider it later but something tells me he won't do it then either. Only if Reid goes to wwe would Ric sign another contract with them because he has already said that he would like to be the manager to his son.
CALVIN: Seeing and meeting Ric Flair in Charlotte is a lot more Entertaining then seeing Cars go around a track over and over that's for sure!!!!
FRANK (ANSWER TO K. SIMMS QUESTION) Great Question K. Simms,I doubt Ric ever goes to tna but if he did he should become the manager to the (MEM) Main Event Mafia! How Cool would that be??  They would be unstoppable with the Naitch in their corner,the only problem with Flair joining them would be the Steroid Punk Scott Steiner,but Flair and the other members of the Mafia could jump Steiner and beat the crap out of him and kick his steriod a#s out of the group.that would be so freakin cool!!!!!!!!!!
RICKY: I Like Jim Cornette but Flair would be a awesome TNA Management Director too, imagine Flair coming out there every week telling everybody who they will be wrestling and making the matches and making the rules while screaming into the microphone in classic Flair mode! i know i am dreaming because it ain't happening but i can always hope.
DAVID BANKS: I would enjoy seeing a Flair/Jeff Jarrett match, Flair could come back for two more matches, one against the Icon Sting and then against Jeff Jarrett. 
TYLER: WOOOOO WHAT'S CAUSIN' ALL THIS? WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
CHRISTOPHER: frank don't feel alone because everybody could care less about "steroid junkie" steiner,that pathetic excuse of a wrestler hadn't had a good wrestling match in 15 years!he can barely move and he has no business in the main event mafia, i think the group would be a lot better if they dumped him and got someone else.as far as getting flair to be their manager that would work but like you said only if they dumped steiner because flair would probably refuse to work with the non talented idiot
PHIL HANSEN: DAVID PUT THIS E-MAIL ON YOUR MESSAGE BOARD. "I HAVE BEEN TO COUNTLESS WRESTLING WEBSITES IN THE LAST 12 YEARS BUT NONE OF THEM COME CLOSE TO BEING AS GOOD AS YOUR RIC FLAIR SITE IS" I REALLY MEAN THAT, I HAVE SEEN A LOT OF GOOD SITES BUT WHAT MAKES YOUR SITE STAND OUT IS THE AMOUNT OF INFO YOU HAVE AND THE NAVIGATION IS PROBABLY THE LARGEST I HAVE EVER SEEN.

A PERSON ON YOUR SITE HAS SO MUCH MATERIAL TO CHOOSE FROM, BUT MORE IMPORTANT THEN THOSE TWO THINGS IS THE CONSISTENT UPDATES THAT YOU DO TO THE SITE, I KNOW YOU HAVE HELP WITH YOUR SITE BUT MOST OF THE CREDIT GOES TO THE WEBMASTER AND THAT IS YOU DAVID.

I HAVE SPENT HOURS AND HOURS ON YOUR SITE AND I CAN'T GET ENOUGH. YOUR SITE IS THE BEST WRESTLING WEBSITE I HAVE EVER SEEN. THANK YOU WEBMASTER DAVID FOR YOUR FANTASTIC TRIBUTE TO OUR FAVOURITE WRESTLER RIC FLAIR.


BRYAN WALKER: Woooo i seen the Nature Boy last night at a North East wrestling show, it was the biggest crowd that North East wrestling has ever drew and everyone knows why, it was all because of the man, i didn't pay for the VIP and get to meet Flair but i did see him and that was good enough for me, i also seen Ric's son Reid and the Beautiful people were there also, it was a good show and seeing Flair was icing on the cake. if Ric reads the messageboard then thanks Ric for coming to N.Y. for one of our shows. it means a lot to me for you to come. you will always be the man!
KEVIN O: If Ric goes to TNA i would like to see him join Sting and be on his side for a couple months by being his good friend and mentor and then Ric with the main event mafia should attack Sting and beat the snot out of him and leave him laying,  Flair should get Sting in the figure four while all the main event mafia destroys the Stinger and leaves him a bloody mess,  and if that happened how many times would that be that Flair has turned on Sting??  LOL!!  i would love to see that!!  Woooo!!
CURT: A lot of tna fans in the room; i understand why because tna is great but i am surprised to see so many.
DAVID CHANDLER: Ric Flair is a kiss stealin wheelin dealin limousine ridin jet flyin son of a gun who has kissed all the girls and made 'em cry because he is the best wrestler who has ever lived, and he has styled and profiled to be the greatest world champion of all time woooooooooooooo
RAY AVERY: I TOTALLY AGREE ABOUT FLAIR AND NASCAR. FLAIR HAS BEEN RED HOT SINCE WRESTLEMANIA LAST YEAR AND EVERYTHING HE INVOLVES HIMSELF WITH SELLS OUT QUICK AND ALL THE AUTOGRAPH SIGNINGS HE'S DONE HAVE BEEN VERY POPULAR AND PRODUCED MASSIVE CROWDS AND THE OFFERS HE HAS BEEN RECEIVING HAVE BEEN ADDING UP, EVERYTHING FLAIR TOUCHES TURNS TO GOLD SO WHY SHOULDN'T NASCAR HIRE A PERSON WHO IS SO RED HOT THAT HE WILL SELL THEM MORE TICKETS FOR THE ALL STAR RACE AND MAKE THEIR RATINGS INCREASE. I DON'T BLAME NASCAR AT ALL FOR INVOLVING THEMSELVES WITH A MAN WHO IS ON FIRE LIKE FLAIR IS. WOO WOOO WOOO WOOOO WOOOO
JULIA LOVES THE NAITCH: Webmaster David Is there any way possible that you can get In touch with Ric Flair and tell him that I want to "RIDE SPACE MOUNTAIN" ALL NIGHT LONG???????????????
GREG: what mid-card talent right now in TNA wrestling would the Flair fans want to see wrestle Flair in the ring were the naitch could work his magic and turn them into a overnight superstar? it would kind of like be what Flair did for Sting at the first clash of the champions in '88 but Flair would be doing it for a current TNA mid-card guy? i hope i get some responces to this question
ETHAN: i was reading Jim Ross's past blogs yesterday and i came accross this blog were he discussed Flair vs. Steamboat and i thought the fans on the message-board would enjoy reading it like i did. 

Jim Ross Blog: I have seen on various wrestling websites that polls and columns have been written about who is Ric Flair's greatest opponent or "Naitch's" greatest match. I have read some really entertaining and informative material on this subject, many of which brought back some great memories. After looking at many of the bouts up for nomination as Flair's greatest opponent or Ric's greatest matches it's humbling to realize that I have had the honor of broadcasting more than my fair share of these classics.

In my opinion, Ric's greatest opponent, as far as match quality and continuing to raise the bar each and every time they competed, has to be Ricky Steamboat. I know Ric feels this way too. There is no doubt that the greats of the game like Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes,Wahoo McDaniel, Terry Funk, etc, among many others, deserve "props," but Steamboat truly brought out the best in Ric and visa versa.

Flair and Steamboat had many classics over the years and some of their stuff in the late 70s was awe inspiring, but their rivalry in and round 1989 was the stuff that most fans will remember and be best familiar with, as it was during the days of PPV and live, cable TV specials. I do not recall in my 30+ years in the business a better and more compelling, dramatically athletic story being told in the ring than between these two artisans in '89 while we were all at WCW working for Ted Turner. These two were silky smooth, but don't think for one second that these two men were not overtly physical with each other, because they were...trust me on that one.

For any young wrestler or wrestling wanna be, I strongly suggest you familiarize yourself with Flair vs. Steamboat in any form you can access it and truly study the chemistry these two had and the philosophy as to why their matches created magic. 


DARREN: "ray you said it man" the naitch is indeed on fire since last years wrestlemania, i know that most of the time you have to pay to get flair's autograph but my uncle was wondering that if he sees flair in charlotte at the race will he have to pay to meet and talk to him? i don't think flair will charge anything in that environment will he? does anyone know?
SCOTT MATTISON: I HAD NO CLUE THAT NASCAR'S RATINGS HAD DROPPED SO MUCH IN THE LAST COUPLE YEARS!!  SO NASCAR HIRES RIC FLAIR FOR ONE RACE TO GET THEIR RATINGS HIGHER AND HELP THEM SELL-OUT THE ALL STAR RACE HUH?? OK I AGREE WITH BRINGING FLAIR IN BUT HERE IS MY QUESTION, "BRINGING RIC FLAIR IN FOR THE ALL STAR RACE ONLY WILL HELP THEIR RATINGS AND ATTENDANCE FOR ONE RACE AND ONE RACE ONLY"  YES OBVIOUSLY FLAIR WILL INCREASE THEIR RATINGS AND ATTENDANCE FOR THE CHARLOTTE RACE BUT WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER RACES??  FLAIR CAN'T HELP THE OTHER RACES IF HE AIN'T THERE. YEAH NASCAR'S RATINGS WILL BE HIGHER FOR THE CHARLOTTE RACE BUT THEN THE NEXT WEEK THEY WILL DROP BACK DOWN WITH NO FLAIR RIGHT?
KENNY: Curt don't be surprised because if you watch TNA on a regular basis then you know why they are so many TNA fans.I would like to see Flair step in the ring with the "The King Of The Mountain" Jeff Jarrett,I don't think they ever wrestled each other in WCW did they?Great posts Flair fans.Webmaster David keep up the good work.Whoooo!
AARON: Thanks Ethan for that article from Jim Ross i had already read it before but i read it again because Jim Ross is speaking the truth in that blog.JR nails it about the true meaning of a Flair-Steamboat match and why they are the greatest wrestling matches of all time. does anyone think for a second that Hulk Hogan and the clowns of the old WWF could equal the skill of a Flair-Steamboat world title match?? Hell no they couldn't. Hogan and the clowns in the WWF he defended the belt against in the 1980's couldn't wrestle because Hogan was a paper champion in the 80's with a belt that meant NOTHING while at the same time "the REAL world's heavyweight champion "Nature Boy" Ric Flair was defending his REAL world title against guys like Ricky Steamboat in ***** Classic matches that will be remembered for being the greatest wrestling matches of all time.  Flair and Steamboat are what real wrestling is all about and Hulk Hogan was a non talented guy that didn't know how to wrestle and still don't to this day.
BRENT PAXON: I do have a responce Greg;; Flair as we know is retired and he will probably never wrestle again but if he did get back in the ring I think the mid card talent in TNA that the Nature Boy could have a match with and turn him into a overnight sensation and put him on the map is the Blueprint Matt Morgan!! before anyone disagrees with me think back to 1988 thru 1990 when Flair made Lex Luger a star when Luger was never a great wrestler and Matt Morgan reminds me a lot of Luger. Morgan is a big strong muscular guy just like Luger was. Luger was never a big star in wrestling until he was in the ring with the Nature Boy. If Flair could make Luger a star then why couldn't he do it for Matt Morgan?
SAMMY: Hey fans here is the preview for this thursday nights TNA broadcast.Dave i appreciate you posting all my e-mails i send you.Thank You Man!

PREVIEW FOR THURSDAY'S "IMPACT!" ON SPIKE TV: THE GODFATHER'S REVENGE...AND WHAT'S NEXT FOR BOBBY LASHLEY?

- With the Sacrifice main event in place, what does Kurt Angle have planned? The Godfather of The Main Event Mafia is out for revenge, and no one in TNA is safe.

- What's next for Bobby Lashley in TNA,and is there some kind of connection with Angle and The Main Event Mafia? How does he fit into the power struggle between The Main Event Mafia and TNA Frontline? Tune into "Impact!" on Thursday for more news on Lashley's arrival in Total Nonstop Action - and what his plans might be!

- What will happen when TNA Founder Jeff Jarrett and TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mick Foley cross paths on Thursday night? Is it the start of a war between Jarrett and Foley?

- In a huge main event tag team bout, it will be The Main Event Mafia vs. TNA Frontline as "Big Sexy" Kevin Nash and Booker T battle TNA Legends Champion "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles and Samoa Joe!

- Also on Thursday, the Team 3D Invitational Tag Team Tournament continues with more bouts!

- There will be a Knockouts Stretcher Match as Awesome Kong faces Madison Rayne of The Beautiful People

All this and much more on Thursday night on "iMPACT!" on SpikeTV at 9/8c as the road to the May "Sacrifice" Pay-Per-View continues! 


WENDELL:""LOL Julia if you want to ride space mountain then you better get in the long line of women who want to do the same thing""  Sorry girl but it ain't happening"" and i don't know what you look like but Ric Flair only associates himself with beautiful women because he is Ric Flair you know he refuses to be with anything less because Space Mountain may be the oldest ride in the park but it still has the longest line! WooOOOooooOOOOOooooooooOOOOOoooooooOOOOOOOoooooooOOOOOOooooooo!!
WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: Hello everybody...........Sorry I hadn't responded to every person's e-mails yet but I will get there eventually.......... and thanks to all the e-mail posts for the message-board...............there have been some really good ones lately but I am biased ain't I?............I would like to answer Greg's question which was a great question, he asked what guy on the mid card level at this moment in time in TNA could Ric Flair wrestle and make him into a superstar like Flair did Sting at the Clash of Champions back in 1988................I didn't have to think about this one long at all because I know the perfect guy who in my opinion is one of the best pure workers in the wrestling business today and that person is Robert Roode of Beer Money Inc.

Robert Roode is a great worker and he has the ability,charisma,mic talent,and all the tools a wrestler needs to advance to that next level and all it would take is Ric Flair to wrestle him a few times and Robet Roode would be a Main Event guy..............let me say that I think that even without Ric Flair's help Robert Roode in the next year or two will be in the TNA main events you can count on it..............Robert Roode don't need anyone's help including Ric Flair because he will be the next mid card level talent to elevate to the main events..........TNA made a great decision several months back to sign Roode to a multi year deal because Vince McMahon/WWE also tried to get Roode to come up North but he turned them down.........Thanks again for all the support for the site and I appreciate all the e-mails for the message-board..........Webmaster, David Matthews........


BRIAN: Hey Webmaster Dave I found some things on-line that should interest all the Flair fans on the Message-Board so please post the info below for me. One thing is a report on Flair's first on air promo for ROH (Ring Of Honor) and a report about what Flair will be doing for Nascar in Charlotte this Monday.Thanks Man and keep up the great work on your awesome site.

Inside Info on Flair's ROH debut on HDNet

ROH(Ring of Honor's) show opens introducing "Nature Boy" Ric Flair as the new ROH Ambassador to a loud chorus of "whoooos" and bowing fans. There was even a fan bowing who wore a Santino or possibly even a Santina shirt. After shaking hands with Cary Silkin, the 16-time champ takes the mic.

He points out that heís ust not gonna retire and leave professional wrestling.

When first called to be the Ambassador he says he thought "Ring of Honor and Ric Flair? That works for me." Putting over the talent, he suggests there might be a "Nature Boy" in the back. Or a Shawn Michaels. Or a Triple H. That last name was not well-received.

Flair then introduces ROH champion Jerry Lynn. A seemingly awed Lynn accepts Flairís hand as Flair praises him as "world championship caliber".

Flair declares Lynn the man, as in to be him you gotta beat him, and turns over the mic.

Lynn thanks Silkin for rejuvenating his career and thanks Flair for showing up to wrestle him in 1995 after suffering a car accident days earlier and for teaching him about honor, pride and passion that he applied both personally and professionally. The very gentlemanly exchange is interrupted by Austin Aries. Mike Hogewood is appalled. Aries points out that with all the talk of who might be in the back, he actually is in the back. Aries states that HE was the man before Flair and Lynn came to ROH. Flair replies that he likes his attitude and heís looking forward to seeing him in action. Segment just kind of ends with Austin backing out and Flair thanking and whooing the crowd.


Race weeks at Lowe's Motor Speedway are only 10 days away and to help drop the green flag on the exciting month of motorsports at the home of stock car racing the legendary Hall of Famer "Nature Boy" Ric Flair will sell tickets at the speedway ticket office Monday beginning at 5 p.m.

Fans that come to the ticket office Monday and purchase tickets for the 25th NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race or the 50th running of the Coca-Cola 600 will receive the popular "All-Star Slugfest" poster that features several drivers' heads on wrestlers' bodies and meet the drivers and the "Nature Boy." Flair will staff the ticket office from 5-7 p.m.

Tickets for the May 16 Sprint All-Star Race start at only $25, while tickets to the Coca-Cola 600 on May 24 begin at just $39.75 with a Family Four-Pack purchase.

At 7 p.m. PRN's "Fast Talk," the popular nationally syndicated radio program, will broadcast live from the front of the ticket office with host Doug Rice and special co-host. Fans are invited to attend the live broadcast and participate in the program which will include a special guest appearance by pro-wrestling legend, Flair, and phone-in interviews from NASCAR's top stars.

CHUCK: Ric Flair is 60 years of age and he is still working his ass off. every which way he turns he is busy doing something, he is working for Nascar, he is working for Walmart, he is working for Coca-Cola, he is working for Ring Of Honor, he is working for the Red Alert video game, Damn he is amazing ain't he?? Wooooo!!!
BRANDON: WOOOO I just got home from seeing Ric's boys Reid and David wrestle as a tag team with the Naitch in their corner and it was a big crowd with tons of people waiting in line to meet Flair and get his autograph.It was a great show and everyone was Wooooing throughout the night.
JAMES WATSON: i'm not a fan of nascar but i will at least watch the broadcast on tv to get a glimpse of the Nature Boy!!!
KYLE: NASCAR FINALLY FIGURED OUT WHAT I HAVE KNOWN ALL ALONG AND IT IS THAT RIC FLAIR OWNS N.C. AND ESPECIALLY CHARLOTTE, N.C. MY QUESTION IS WHY DIDN'T NASCAR DO THIS A LONG TIME AGO??  BUT NOW WITH THEIR SLUMPING RATINGS THEY KNEW IT WAS TIME TO HIRE THE MAN WHO PUT THIS STATE (N.C.) ON THE MAP- RIC "FREAKIN" FLAIR TO PUT THEIR RATINGS THROUGH THE ROOF AS ONLY RIC FLAIR CAN DO.

ERIC R: Yeah Kyle Ric Flair is a Ratings God and Nascar knows it that is why they hired him. "Ric Flair equals Ratings"
TIM: HEY FLAIR FANATICS I HEARD THE NAITCH ON THE RADIO LAST NIGHT LIVE FROM CHARLOTTE WITH KASEY KANE. THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT FLAIR'S INVOLVEMENT WITH THE ALL STAR RACE! I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD LISTENING TO THE NATURE BOY.  HOW COOL IS THAT??  WOOOOO!!
MICKY: Woooooo I went to see the Nature Boy yesterday at Lowes Motor Speedway in Charlotte "Wooooo" North Carolina,the Naitch and nascar driver kasey kahne were signing autographs together but what I really noticed was that Flair's autograph line was twice as long as kasey kahne's line was. No offence to kasey kahne but I swear it seemed like he wouldn't even there because most people were interested in Ric Flair. I actually felt sorry for kasey to be honest.
ROBBIE: michelle call dish network and ask them if that channel (HDNET) is available with your package you are receiving now,if not then you might have to upgrade to be able to get it.I need to look into it myself.
CURT: I listened to the Champ style and profile on nascar radio from charlotte monday.i heard they were another massive crowd to see the man. wooooooooo!

DAVID BERNARD: I am going to the All Star Race and I hope I can drink a few beers with the Nature Boy in person!!! I know the Naitch will be drinking a few. hell he might even be drinking some Jim Beam, he said Mr.Beam was his main man on the Nascar Video David had on the home page last week, I bet nobody can throw a party and drink All Night Long like Nature Boy Ric Flair can. Hopefully on the night of the All Star Race I will find out. I hope I see him there because if I do I am going to ask him if I can party All Night Long with him??  lol I know that won't happen but if it did it would be the Coolest thing ever. Woooooo Jim Beam and the Nature Boy will style and profile in Charlotte on the night of May 16th Woooooo!!!
ADAM: Ric Flair is my favourite wrestler of all time and he is the best wrestler to ever step into a wrestling ring. long live the Naitch. Woooooooooooo!!!!!
FLAIRRULES: LOL David Bernard no doubt that Ric knows how to Party all night long!! Long Limousines, Beautiful Ladies, Nice Clothes, Biggest House on the biggest side of town, Shampagne and Wine, Jim Beam, Beer, Kiss Stealin, Wheelin Dealin, the Greatest wrestler God has ever Created and the biggest star in the history of the wrestling industry, the man who put wrestling on the map and the man who is the most respected wrestler who has ever lived and that man's name is Ric Wooo "By God" Flair. Ric Flair MADE wrestling. Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
BOBBY: Welcome back Iceman, you're right man I also enjoy reading Sammy's blogs on TNA because they do kick ass these days and they are a notch ahead of WWE.  ICEMAN I also would like to see a Mick Foley vs. Samoa Joe match but another match I would like to see is a Mick Foley vs. Abyss Hardcore match. I am a big Abyss fan and he is one tough SOB. Hey Iceman the Webmaster has told me about you and your addictive habits so get back to drinking them cold beers and everytime you take a sip go Woooo for me. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
DAVID J: donnie great question,the thing about Ric Flair that seperates him from every other wrestler in my opinion is his work ethic and his desire to be the best every time he got in the ring to perform,that's what made him the best wrestler ever,and the reason he is still more popular today then any current wrestler is because people look at ric and they see a guy who really cares about the sport of wrestling and they see and feel that he really cares about the fans and that is really important,flair is not a fake like so many of todays wrestlers he is as real as they come and that is why i think Ric Flair will always be in a class by himself.donnie does this answer your question?
R. THOMPSON: ICEMAN YOU KNOW RIC FLAIR LOVES TO DRINK BEER AND PARTY ALL NIGHT LONG DON'T YOU?? WOOOOO, TNA WAS AWESOME AGAIN THURSDAY NIGHT AND YOU AIN'T THE ONLY ONE WHO LIKES DOUBLE J JEFF JARRETT EITHER. MY DREAM ONE DAY IS FOR RIC FLAIR TO GO TO TNA. THEY ARE ALREADY BETTER THEN WWE BUT IF THEY HIRED RIC FLAIR THAT WOULD PUT THEM A MILLION TIMES BETTER THEN WWE.
KENNETH: WOOOOOO DAVID THE HOME PAGE KICKS ASS DUDE,   YOU ARE 100% RIGHT RIC FLAIR AND RICKY STEAMBOAT ARE THE BEST MATCHES OF ALL TIME AND THE MATCH ON MAY 7TH 1989 IS THE GREATEST MATCH OF THEM ALL, HARD TO BELIEVE IT HAS BEEN 20 YEARS THOUGH.   WOOOOOO RIC FLAIR AND RICKY STEAMBOAT RULE!!! AND YOU GOT TO SEE RIC AGAIN SO I BET THAT WAS KILLER AS USUAL WOULDN'T IT? GREAT NEW UPDATES TO THE SITE DAVID AND YOUR UPDATES MAKE YOUR SITE THE BEST FLAIR SITE EVER. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
CLINT: 20 years ago the greatest match of all time the Naitch and the Dragon went at it for the NWA World Title."I watched it live" just like you did webmaster David and i won't ever forget it. Thanks for putting up the new Flair history page. it will never get any better then the Naitch vs. the Dragon Woooooooooo
TYLER: hell yeah dave the two new pages are fantastic. the flair pics from charlotte are awesome and the tribute to the Steamboat Flair match is incredible. it is the best match ever but there were more Steamboat Flair matches that were almost as good. everytime they wrestled it was a freakin CLASSIC!!!!!!!!!!
RICHARD: COOL NEW UPDATES TO THE SITE DAVID. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!! WOOOOOOO
DONALD: Diamonds are Forever and so is Ric Flair vs.Ricky Steamboat from Wrestle War '89 in Nashville,Tennessee. The best Damn match ever!
MISTY: David I like the new pages on the website, the new pic of Ric Flair you took that is on the home page is one of the best pictures I have ever seen of Ric, he is still so handsome and Hot, I Love Ric Flair and I always will. Wooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FLAIR VS. STEAMBOAT ROCK: I have seen a lot of Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat matches and not one time did i ever see a bad match. To be honest every one of them was a classic!
PAUL GENTRY: WOW david the new pics of Flair are great and the new page devoted to Flair and Steamboats match is great too. Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat from may 7th 1989 was the greatest match of all time. It's True---It's Damn True!!!!
JAMES: When I Die and hopefully make it to a better place I hope Jesus has a VCR and a video tape of a Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat match for me to watch in Heaven that way I can watch their matches for Eternity!!!!
NEIL S: The flair picture on the home page is a great pic indeed along with the week in flair history page. i loved every steamboat flair encounter i ever seen.
JOEY BOWERS: David I enjoyed your new article about Flair vs. Steamboat from 1989. Also the coverage by Pro Wrestling Illustrated was exciting as well. I haven't seen this week in Flair history on your site for awhile now. I hope it will continue from now on even greater than ever.
FLAIR4LIFE: Ladies and Gentlemen you are correct, the match on may 7th 1989 between flair and steamboat was the greatest match of all time but the truth is that every match they had was just as good. flair is the greatest wrestler of all time and steamboat has to be 2nd or 3rd greatest of all time
JOHN: I AGREE ABOUT THE FLAIR STEAMBOAT MATCH BEING VOTED BY (PWI) AS THE BEST MATCH EVER BUT PERSONALLY MY FAVOURITE FLAIR STEAMBOAT MATCH WAS THE TWO OUT OF THREE FALLS MATCH FROM THE CLASH OF THE CHAMPIONS IN APRIL OF '89. THE MATCH WENT 54 MINUTES AND IT WAS SIMPLY INCREDIBLE!! WOOOOOOOOOOOO
N ROBERTS: I remember watching that steamboat flair classic (5-7-89) when it took place and i remember being so mad at terry funk for attacking ric flair after the match and piledriving him through a table. i wanted to kill terry funk for doing that. lol.
RICK BLEVINS: Hey Webmaster Dave dude you are the bomb my friend,these updates you do to your site is awesome as hell!!! your site rules! wooo!
MARK SLOAN: YES THE PIC OF "THE MAN" ON THE HOME PAGE IS A GREAT PIC!  RICKY STEAMBAOT VS. "THE MAN" IS ALSO MY FAVORITE MATCHES OF ALL TIME. NOBODY HAS HAD AS MANY CLASSIC MATCHES AS "THE MAN" HAS!!! WOOOO AND YES RIC FLAIR IS "THE MAN" WOOOOOOOOOOOO
SAMMY: Hey dave great job on the updates and new pictures and i think everyone already knows my opinion on Flair vs. Steamboat, It ain't a opinion though it's a fact that they are the greatest wrestling matches in history, as usual i got the preview for this weeks TNA impact and thanks Dave for everything you do.

JAMIE:(FLAIR VS. STEAMBOAT WERE CLASSICS) Remember Flair fans that Ric Flair wrestled and feuded with Ricky Steamboat in the late 70's long before ppv and i heard that the matches they had were spectacular but there were not any good cameras in them days like they were in 1989 so we don't get to witness the greatness of them matches.  Flair is responsible for Steamboat getting a push from the NWA booker back then, the bookers name was George Scott and when Steamboat first came into the NWA Flair went to Scott and told him to put him in the ring with the Steamboat kid and the rest is HISTORY!! Wooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!
NICOLE: Woooo My Sexy Hunk Naitch is Handsome as ever on the pic on the home page, I noticed he is on the Cell phone on the pic I just wish that I was the one he was on the phone with making plans for a romantic candlelight dinner and then afterwords we could get down to business when I ride his Space Mountain and he has me Wooooing All Night Long!!!  Woooooooooooooooooo I want Space Mountain!!!!  I love you Ric!! 

Love, Nicole


JAY S: I heard on the radio last week that since Ric Flair started working for Nascar that the tickets for the all star race are selling better, they were saying that maybe Nascar should hire Ric more often.
RANDY: We could go on and on about how EXCELLENT the Flair Steamboat matches were and we still wouldn't do them Justice!!  I don't think anything not just in pro wrestling but in all of sports could top the pure magic and skill and entertainment that them matches had. they were that good!!
CHRIS BURTON: LOL Nicole are you another woman thinking you have a snow balls chance in hell of hooking up with Ric Flair?? If so then you are going to be dissapointed because he has lovely ladies lined up a mile long wanting the same thing you do so you got a problem, but there ain't nothing wrong with having fantasies I guess.
TREVOR: rick is right,; david you got the best wrestling website ever man!! no other website compares to yours. whoooooo
JOSEPH: NASCAR'S ATTENDANCE AND TICKET SALES SUCK AND THEIR RATINGS SUCK SO THEY HIRED RIC FLAIR TO GET THEM OUT OF THE MESS THEY ARE IN, FLAIR WILL GET THE ALL-STAR-RACE AS CLOSE TO A SELL-OUT AS POSSIBLE., FLAIR MAY EVEN CAUSE THEM TO SELL THE SPEEDWAY COMPLETELY OUT.
GREG: Seen the Champ (Ric Flair) on our local news doing a interview from the Schewels Furniture store during his autograph signing session last week and they showed the line of people to see him and it went around the entire building of Schewels several times. it was a LOT of people.
DANNY: HEY DONNIE NOBODY ELSE HAS THE CHARISMA FLAIR HAS HAD AND STILL HAS.  IT OOOZES OFF OF FLAIR HE IS SO CHARISMATIC. THAT MOST OF ALL IS WHAT SEPERATES FLAIR FROM EVERYONE ELSE.
R. WILSON: Joseph is right don't be surprised what Ric Flair accomplishes when it comes to nascar, if anybody can get the race sold out it will be Ric Flair. Didn't the tickets start selling a lot better after Flair did the nascar video promo to set up the all star race? what does that tell you?
JEREMY: Wooooo I'm on my way to Charlotte in a few hours for the All Star Race,I got free tickets and im not realy a big nascar fan but I will be looking and wanting to see the biggest celebrity in charlotte saturday night and it ain't any nascar driver it is the Nature Boy Wooo Ric Flair!! Woooo!! Ric Flair is a bigger sports ICON then any nascar driver will ever be. Woooooooooooooooooooooooo
RYAN: nicole you want to ride space mountain huh?? lol i think chris is right you need to get in line with all the other women if you ask me. good luck!!! lol
TIM: Flair is doing a radio commercial for Nascar promoting the all star race and i heard it for the first time today it is cool, he goes in a wooo frenzy i bet he said wooo 10 times in a 30 second clip--it was funny and classic flair!
JOHNNY D: WOOOOOOO THE NAITCH RULES NOT ONLY WRESTLING BUT HE RULES NASCAR TOO.EVERYTHING THE NAITCH TOUCHES TURNS TO GOLD AND IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME ASK NASCAR.TICKETS ARE SELLING A LOT FASTER FOR THE UPCOMING RACE AND IT'S BECAUSE OF THE NAITCH, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER AND SO IS THE NATURE BOY RIC FLAIR, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
JASON: What does everyone on the message board think of Ric Flair coming back to wwe at the ppv last night and appearing on Raw tonight? Flair has so many things going on i don't see how he can do them all!!  He appeared at a small wrestling show last friday night and then the next night he was in Charlotte to help Nascar in the all star race and then last night he appeared at the wwe ppv judgement day in Chicago!! WOW Flair is a busy man, I think Vince McMahon knows what Flair can do when it comes to Ratings so it wouldn't surprise me if we seen a lot more of Flair on wwe tv in the next few weeks. I hope so because wwe has stunk recently so we sure as Hell need a reason to watch them again don't we? Flair is just reason enough to watch them. Wooooo!
SAMMY: Hey Webmaster Dave here is my weekly preview for TNA Impact for you to put on the Message Board.Thanks Man!

CHUCK: WOOOOOO GREAT TO SEE THE NAITCH ON THE ALL STAR RACE OTHER NIGHT, DID YOU HEAR ALL THE WOOOS FROM THE CROWD??? FLAIR GOT A BIGGER RESPONCE THEN ANY OF THE NASCAR DRIVERS BY A LONG SHOT! FLAIR IS STILL THE MAN!! WOOOOO
ERIC: Wooooooo i missed the Naitch on the race other night but it was on my local news here in Greensboro so i seen it thank god,all the news people were going Wooooo!!!sounds like Flair pumped up the nascar crowd!!Wooooo!!!
DANIEL PAXON: I hope Flair comes back to wrestle but i would rather him do it in TNA instead of WWE. I think TNA will book him in better storylines then WWE will. Who agrees with me?
JOEL M: nascar driver elliott sadler was woooing on some nascar radio show last week,he said flair is his idol and the greatest athlete in the history of sports. woooooo
GREGORY: WOOOO THE NAITCH WALKED THAT ISLE ON ESPN OTHER NIGHT LIVE FROM LOWES MOTOR SPEEDWAY IN A GREAT INTERVIEW AND THE LADIES IN THE AUDIENCE WERE GOING BONKERS OVER FLAIR. ONE PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN HAD A SIGN THAT SAID "I AM IN LOVE WITH SPACE MOUNTAIN" AND FLAIR ACKNOWLEDGED HER AND TOLD HER THAT IT WOULD BE THE RIDE OF HER LIFE WHICH WAS SO DAMN FUNNY!   THERE IS ONLY ONE RIC FLAIR!!
CHRIS: Gregory that sucks that i missed that, i bet that was awesome to watch, and you are right there is only one Naitch! Woooo!
ADAM N: Woooooo fantastic to see "THE MAN" back on wwe raw but If I'm being honest I would rather see him on TNA but I will take what I can get when it comes to Flair because the main thing Is that we get to see him.
FLAIRRULES: i was at the all star race in charlotte this past weekend and i can guarantee everybody that ric flair got a bigger pop from the audience that any driver got and the one post was right it wouldn't even close, but hell why Chuck do you seem shocked by that?? if you know how popular Flair is like i think you do then you shouldn't be shocked.
CHERYL: WOOOOOO MY NAITCH IS BACK LOOKING AS ONLY HE CAN LOOK, ME BEING A WOMAN I NOTICE EVERYTHING AND LAST NIGHT I REALLY NOTICED HOW BUFF RIC'S ARMS ARE. I THINK SINCE HE HAS BEEN RETIRED HE HAS REALLY HIT THE GYM AND LIFTED A LOT OF WEIGHTS. RIC'S ARMS ARE HUGE AND HE IS REALLY LOOKING GOOD.
WALTER BLEVINS: Nothing like Ric Flair to pump up a crowd like he did at Lowes motor speedway. Go Get 'em Ric!! Wooooooooooooo
BOBBY: Who else seen how big Flair's guns were last night? he is 60 years old and more importantly he is in better shape then most of the guys who are in their 30's and that ain't no bull!!
MATTHEW: i predict Ric Flair will come out of retirement and wrestle and that will make me a wrestling fan again and i will start watching it--I hadn't watched any wrestling since he retired so please Ric come back and style and profile. woooooooo
RENAE: I MISSED FLAIR ON RAW LAST NIGHT BUT MY BOYFRIEND RECORDED IT SO I'LL GET TO SEE IT.IF FLAIR IS GOING TO START BEING ON RAW MORE OFTEN I WON'T MISS IT IN THE FUTURE.DAVID PUT THIS ON YOUR MESSAGE BOARD AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK ON YOUR SITE, YOU GOT THE BEST FLAIR SITE EVER AND THANKS FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO FOR RIC FLAIR.
JAMES BURROWS: david you probably get tired of hearing this but i must say again that you got the best ric flair website that i've ever seen.the amount of info on your site blows me away.your site rules woooooooooo
ROBERT: brent that was nice for flair to react that way to your daughter, i have met ric three times before and he is without a doubt the nicest person i have ever met in my entire life, he is so humble and kind unlike hulk hogan, my brother met hogan one time and he said hogan was a ass hole and he wouldn't even sign a autograph, hogan just walked away from my brother without signing a autograph, there is the difference between flair and hogan, one is conceited and one is a class act.
JC: yeah cheryl the nature boy appears to be in great shape and ready to get back in the ring and i pray it happens because diamonds are forever and so is the real world champion; woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
MICHAEL: i enjoyed seeing ric on raw monday.batista seemed so happy to see him and you could tell how much respect he has for ric.i am not that much of a batista fan but if he respects my idol(ric) then he is ok with me.
TRAVIS: I AM HOPING LIKE HELL THAT THE NAITCH STEPS BACK IN THE RING AND DOES WHAT HE DOES BEST. WHO GIVES A CRAP IF HE IS 60 OR 70 OR EVEN 90 BECAUSE HE IS RIC FLAIR THE GREATEST WRESTLER IN THE HISTORY OF THE SPORT AND AS YOU COULD EASILY SEE ON RAW MONDAY HE IS IN AWESOME CONDITION AND SINCE HE HAS BEEN RETIRED HE HAS BEEN WORKING OUT CONSISTENTLY AND I WOULD BET MY LIFE THAT HE CAN STILL GO A HOUR IN THE RING IF HE HAD TO. KEEP IN MIND THAT EVEN THOUGH HE IS 60 HE IS LEGENDARY FOR HIS CARDIOVASCULAR CONDITIONING AND WHEN IT COMES TO RIC FLAIR AGE IS JUST A NUMBER. RIC FLAIR IS LIKE A FINE WINE - HE GETS BETTER WITH AGE!!!  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WALLY: so many people on the messageboard want flair to go to tna but why? why do ya'll want him to go and what do you want him to do after he gets there? 
DENNIS: robert that definately don't surprise me about hogan because i have heard stuff like that about him for years,to refuse to sign a autograph for a fan is terrible and he needs to realize that the fans make celebrities what they are today and without the fans they would be nothing, ric flair has said that for years and that is why he treats the fans like he does. hogan is a arrogant prick so screw him. he needs to take some lessons from flair on how to conduct yourself outside the ring especially to the fans.
ALAN: Flair shouldn't worry about Shawn Michaels reaction to him wrestling again because Shawn has already said that he don't have a problem with Ric no matter what he does.He said Ric is his idol and that he can do anything he wants to do so shouldn't that be enough for Ric not to worry about Shawn?
STEVEN: Sammy i like your tna blogs, i really like tna and i wish one day that flair would go there because i would really like to see one more flair sting classic! woooooo

JEFF STOKES: From the appearance of the Naitch on raw monday nite I think he's ready to lace up them boots RIGHT NOW!! you flair fanatics are right he's in great shape and his arms are big as hell, i didn't really pay attention to that until i read it on the message-board and i went back on my dvr and watched it and yes Flair's arms are massive. come on Flair please wrestle again. i am ready to see some styling and profiling.
BRENT: me and my wife and baby met the nature boy in charlotte sat.night at the race track, he was a complete gentlemen and signed a autograph to me and my wife, he even kissed my little 2 month old daughter on the forehead, what a class act he is!
TOMMY: SURPRISE SURPRISE WRESTLING FANS THE RATINGS ARE IN FOR MONDAY NIGHT'S RAW BROADCAST AND THEY WERE THE HIGHEST THEY HAVE BEEN IN A MONTH.  I WONDER WHY???  I THINK WE ALL KNOW WHY DON'T WE?? WOOOOO!
KEVIN CUSACK: Flair has been offered serious amounts of cash to wrestle overseas and i think he should do it. If he does do it the only thing i worry about is how i can get a copy of his matches on dvd because obviously they will be recorded but i have no idea who will record them and what company will own the rights to them. i want to make sure i can buy a copy. does anyone have any ideas or suggestions about this issue??
DEREK O: I had no idea that "Flair" was gonna be on raw monday so I didn't watch it but my friend tivoed it for me and I watched it and you fans are right Flair has some big time Guns and hell yeah he's been workout out a lot since he has been retired. Very Impressive!!!
ETHAN: Hey Kevin trust me man if Flair wrestles overseas a company like highspots will pay to sponsor the event that way they can record the matches and we will for sure be able to see them at a later date;;Don't think for a second that Ric Flair (The Greatest Wrestler Of All Time) is going to come back and wrestle and nobody is going to record them; no way that won't happen so Kevin don't worry about it.
MITCH D: I bet Ric Flair could come back and still put on a better performance then anybody on the entire wwe roster.Travis is right, Ric Flair is like a fine wine he gets better with age woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
JOSEPH: Tommy i didn't have to read your post to know that Flair would increase the ratings because he always does that!!!!
ROGER (EXCITED ABOUT MEETING THE CHAMP) Woooo the Naitch comes to Myrtle Beach S.C. next month and guess who will be there to meet him?? Me!! that's who, Flair is doing a autograph signing at Walmart and i'll be there to shake his hand and meet him for the first time and i am very excited and nervous too.  I'm going to tell Ric that he is my Idol and Hero and that he brings me back to my childhood with special memories of getting up on Sat. mornings and watching NWA pro wrestling with Bob Caudle and remembering the classic matches with himself and Wahoo and Harley and Ricky Steamboat.  Wooooo i can't wait to meet the man in Myrtle Beach  "Wooo"
STEVEN LANG: David your website is the bomb dude! my favorite page is the message board. i enjoy reading opinions from intelligent wrestling fans that are true ric flair fans, keep up the good work and please don't ever take the message board off. thanks and post this email for me.
MARK BERGMAN: Brent thank you for sharing that experience you and your wife had with Ric at the all star race. Ric Flair is not even my favorite wrestler and i have to admit that he is probably the nicest celebrity to his fans---I don't know of another celebrity who continues to take time out if his or her schedule to spend with their fans and I have heard from a lot of people and read from hundreds of people on-line who have met Ric Flair in person and i have yet to hear from one of them who said that he wouldn't a true gentleman and a class act. I think that speaks volumes about his character don't it?
TYSON: WOOOO, RIC FLAIR IS THE BEST WRESTLER OF ALL TIME WOOOOO, RIC FLAIR IS THE BEST WORLD CHAMPION IN WRESTLING HISTORY WOOOOO, RIC FLAIR IS THE BIGGEST ICON EVER IN PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING WOOOOO, AND VERY SOON WHEN RIC FLAIR COMES OUT OF RETIREMENT WE WILL ALL KNOW WHY RIC FLAIR IS STILL THE MAN.  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
SABRINA: I love Ric Flair and I hope the rumors are true that he is thinking about wrestling again. That would be so good if it happened. He is so handsome too so that's another reason I want him to wrestle again.
NICK "THE FRICK" FRICKIE: Hey Webmaster Dave sorry I hadn't sent you a post for the message board in a while but like I have always told you no matter how often I e-mail you I always keep up to date with the board and as usual everything I see on the site looks fantastic. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!
BOBBY: WOOOOO it's time for the Naitch to walk that isle and do what he does better then anybody else and that is wrestle and style and profile! WOOOOO!
LONNIE: yes mark bergman that says everything about ric flair's character, that is why ric flair is not just the most respected wrestler ever but he is the most respected athlete that has ever lived, the proof is that is nobody that has ever met him face to face saying anything negative about him, i met flair in person back in late '91 in new york, he had just went to wwf from wcw and i was so happy because i lived in the new york area and i knew that i was going to be able to go see him wrestle live for the first time, i told flair that i wanted him to beat up hulk hogan and that even though i was from new york(wwe country) i knew that he(flair) was the greatest of all time and that hogan was a phony. he was so kind and thanked me for being a fan. yes mark you're right ric flair is a class act and it is a crying shame how all famous people can't be like him.
KEITH CARELL: I don't blame you Roger for being excited, unfortunately I have never had the honor of meeting the champ but maybe someday I will get to, I don't think Flair visits Colorado very often so until he does I'll be out of luck. 
FRANK: To be the website you got to beat Rfgolds website!! Woooooo keep up the great work Webmaster Dave!!!!!!!!!
FLAIRISTHEMAN: "Wooo the new homepage background is killer"  "I like it and i can't wait to see the Nature Boy on raw tomorrow night Woooo"
SAMMY: Hey Dave here are the results from TNA'S Sacrifice ppv,it was a great show

RESULTS FROM TNA'S "SACRIFICE" PAY-PER-VIEW EVENT: STING TAKES CONTROL OF THE MAIN EVENT MAFIA

Results from the PPV:

In the opening six-man match on the Pay-Per-View, Lethal Consequences and Eric Young beat The Motor City Machinegs and Sheik Abdul Bashir when Machismo beat Bashir (Bashir tried to block the pin by grabbing the ropes, but the referee kicked them off). After the match, Bashir was upset with the referee's role in costing him the bout.

- Taylor Wilde beat the maniacal Daffney in the first-ever Knockouts Monster's Ball Match. After the bout, Dr. Stevie Richards poured out the bag of tacks and demanded Abyss slam Wilde into them! Abyss refused, and when Richards shoved Lauren Brooke, Abyss instead slammed Richards into the tacks.

- In the X Division Championship match, Suicide retained over Daniels via a time limit draw. However, during the bout the Motor City Machineguns cost Suicide the bout, leading to Daniels getting the win. But when Daniels saw the replay, he refused to accept the win and asked the referee to restart the match. The referee allowed it, and bother Daniels and Suicide fought to the time limit. In the end, Daniels handed the X Title to Suicide and the two superstars congratulated each other on an amazing match.

- In the Knockouts Title match, a terrified Angelina Love retained the gold after getting the pin on Kong after spraying her in the eyes with her perfume. After the bout, Kong cleared her vision and attack Love!

- "The Samoan Submission Machine" Samoa Joe bloodied and defeated his former mentor, Kevin Nash, ultimately forcing him to tap out to a clutch submission. After Joe got the win, he continued to assault Nash, leading to security hitting the ring. "Big Poppa Pump" Scott Steiner came out to check on his fellow Main Event Mafia member.

- In the finals of the Team 3D Tag Team Tournament, Beer Money, Inc defeated The British Invasion to earn $100,000, a trophy and a shot at the TNA World Tag Team Championship. The British Invasion attempted to use the briefcase they stole from Hernandez during the bout, but Beer Money turned the tables and used it instead, allowing James Storm to hit the superkick for the pin.

- In an I-Quit match for the TNA Legends Championship, AJ Styles defeated Booker T to retain the gold after Jenna Morasca threw in the towel from Booker's corner. After a grueling bout, AJ got the best of Booker with an armbreaker after Booker was accidentally distracted by his wife Sharmell. When Booker refused to quit, Morasca tossed in the towel, resulting in the referee stopping the match and awarding the decision to Styles!

- In the "Ultimate Sacrifice" main event featuring TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mick Foley vs. TNA Founder Jeff Jarrett vs. Sting vs. Kurt Angle, "The Icon" Sting got the pin on Kurt Angle to win the bout after Jeff Jarrett hit The Stroke on Angle! As a result of the match stipulations, Sting becomes the NEW Godfather of the Main Event Mafia! Mick Foley retains the TNA World Heavyweight Title, as he was not pinned.


BRADLEY: I hope Flair wrestles again because wrestling needs him a lot more then he needs wrestling. Please come back Naitch!! Woooo
HEATH: Hey wrestling fans the TNA PPV last night was great,Suicide vs. Christopher Daniels was a great match and the Beer Money vs. British Invasion bout was one of the best tag team matches I've seen in a long time,AJ Styles vs. Booker T was as good as expected and the main event was a awesome match with Sting defeating Kurt Angle,Jeff Jarrett and Mick Foley to keep his career alive.Mick Foley kept the title because he didn't get pinned.Sammy keep e-mailing David the news about TNA events because I think more fans are out there who read David's message board that may not watch TNA that often so maybe if they read your reviews about how great they are they might start tuning in.Remember wrestling fans they are more wrestling companies in the world other then WWE so if you hadn't gave TNA a chance please do because they kick ass.
JESSICA: If Ric Flair reads this message board then I got a message for him. "Hey Ric you are a sexy love machine" and no other man has ever turned me on more then you have. You Ric are the best looking man ever and I have been to Disney World and rode their version of Space Mountain but the only real version of Space Mountain is you Ric so I want you to know that I dream about riding your version of Space Mountain all the time and that you are a sexy love god and I will never love another man like I love you Ric. Space Mountain may be the oldest ride in the park but it still has the longest line and it would be so fun to have that proven to me All Night Long!  Wooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!
TJ: i support ric flair in whatever decision he makes no matter what he does, if he stays retired or if he comes back i support him.
DAVID WATTS: WEBMASTER DAVE THE NEW BACKGROUND IS COOL!! I REALLY LIKE IT MAN!!! KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK!!!
MIKE: Great pic of the Nature Boy on the home page. To see Ric Flair with the NWA World Heavyweight Title gives me goose bumps, the NWA World title is the most important title in the history of pro wrestling, the best wrestlers that have ever stepped in a wrestling ring has worn that title led by the greatest of them all "Nature Boy" Ric Flair.
EDDIE: Wooooo What's Causin All This?? Woooo Ric Flair that's Who. Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ROBERT: smokin hot design dave on the homepage, the naitch is and always will be the freakin man. woooooo
KENNETH: Ric Flair was on Speed channel last weekend with Darrell Waltrip on the Wind Tunnel with Dave Despain tv show and the ratings came back for the show and they were the highest that the show has got in four years and it is a nascar show and Ric Flair is not a nascar driver. Does this prove that Ric Flair is a ratings powerhouse or what?
JT: it is great to see Ric Flair on wwe tv but the segment with Flair and Orton tonight on raw made absolutely no sence and was a very weak segment to say the least. first off they only gave Ric about a minute to talk, and then why was the Flair Orton segment interrupted by Mr. Kennedy? why did that happen?? i feel sorry for Flair because the storyline they gave him tonight sucked. come on wwe can't you come up with something better then that?? if this continues to happen then maybe Flair should go to tna?
QUINTEN:
I'm very unhappy with the skit with Randy Orton and Ric Flair.I was expecting more out of it and it didn't produce.Very disappointing
RYAN(MESSAGE TO WWE) NO OFFENCE TO WWE BUT RIC FLAIR NEEDS TO GET THE HELL OUT OF THERE. MY GOD WHAT A PATHETIC BORING SKIT FLAIR WAS PUT IN LAST NIGHT ON RAW!!  JT IS RIGHT IT MADE NO SENCE AND WAS POINTLESS. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT WWE'S PROBLEM IS IN FIGURING OUT THE RIGHT ROLE FOR FLAIR TO PLAY. MESSAGE TO WWE - PUT RIC FLAIR IN A GENERAL MANAGER ROLE AND HAVE HIM MAKE THE MATCHES AND HAVE THE WRESTLERS GET PISSED AT HIM AND THEN HAVE FLAIR SHINE ON THE MICROPHONE WHILE GETTING PISSED BACK AT THEM. IT IS SIMPLE MATH AND WOULD CREATE HUGE RATINGS. YOU WOULD THINK VINCE MCMAHON WOULD BE SMART ENOUGH TO REALIZE THAT BUT OBVIOUSLY HE AIN'T. LAST NIGHT ON RAW WAS A WASTE OF RIC FLAIR'S TALENTS!!
BRUCE: I am really baffled at the storyline with Flair and Orton last nite and that is all i got to say.
ALAN: i agree a million percent with you fans what happened last night with Flair and randy orton was ignorant and wwe has got to create a better storyline for Flair then that. no excuse for garbage like that. the skit with Flair and batista in the dressing room was good but the one with orton and Flair in the ring was horrible.
JAMES (SCREW WWE) If I was Ric Flair after last nights travesty on raw I would bust the door down of the Impact Zone of TNA wrestling in Orlando, Florida and tell Dixie Carter I am ready to go to work because Flair's current wwe storyline is TOTALLY RIDICULOUS!!!!!!
CHAD: I understand that Vince McMahon wants Flair for ratings because we all know Flair's history with increasing ratings and I understand Flair wanting to help wwe out but gee whiz the wrestling fans are getting cheated by events like the one that took place on raw with Flair, Batista and Orton. I have watched wrestling for 23 years and I'm clueless as to how last nights angle with Flair did anything but leave thousands of wrestling fans shaking their heads in disbelief.

I know Flair is loyal to Vince McMahon/WWE and in a way he should be because he did get the greatest send-off in the history of the business but enough is enough. last week's angle with Flair on WWE raw was different because it led to Flair coming back out at the end of the match and getting revenge on Randy Orton's Legacy. I didn't have a problem with that because it served a purpose but last night was a different story because it served no purpose and I went back and watched it again today and to me it seems like the only reason WWE had Flair on the show was to use him for ratings and that is it!!!

If Flair is being reduced to being used only for ratings purposes then how crappy is that?? I blame McMahon for most of this but Flair himself needs to get a grip and realize when he is being taken for a ride. If all this is leading to Flair coming back to wrestle then I may change my mind but if that is what they are going to do then they should go ahead and do it because it is painful to watch Flair being used so poorly like he was on raw last night.


RODNEY: Again WWE is using Naitch in the only way that they think is appropriate and that is to portray him as a defenseless old man who goes out to generate heat for someone elseís match. I still think this is beneath him and I wished he wouldnít subject himself to this kind of stuff. Flair can generate heat with his mic skills no doubt, but if they would let him fight, old school, and as the Dirtiest Player in the Game, he would generate a lot more heat. Again, they donít know what to do with Flair. They want him for the ratings but they donít have the imagination to use him properly. Let him come to the ring with a ball bat like he did with RKOís dad about 25 years ago. That will put butts in seats and get the ratings up. This current angle is embarrassing and not entertaining.
CALVIN: Some Flair ROH news!

The main event of the 6/13 ROH (Ring of Honor) return to New York City at the Hammerstein Ballroom, ROH champion Jerry Lynn vs. Austin Aries will feature Ric Flair as the special guest referee. The storyline is that Nigel McGuinness has asked to be at ringside for the bout so to insure there won't be any interference, Cary Silkin has named Flair as the referee.


NATURE GIRL: I cannot believe that after all Flair has done for the sport of pro wrestling he is STILL getting treated like a POS. Last night was one of the worst RAWS in recent memory and one of the worst Flair moments. I am so sick and tired of seeing him get beat down. NEVER NEVER EVER would that happen to Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold, The Rock and many other legendary stars. I would assume because they would not allow it to happen and maybe because Flair was not created by McMahon but either way I am not happy. I love Ric Flair and when I know he's on television I plan my whole day around it. I am on the edge of my seat especially now that Flair is retired and after seeing what the WWE is doing with him I hope he stays retired at least from that company. He needs to stand up for himself. You know after watching and hearing what Orton said about Flair it makes me wonder if Vince has the writers read online crap and then mix in with what he won't tell Fliar and then send a wrestler out to tell Flair off. What Orton said was close to many posts I've read online not to mention close to what Bischoff and Herd used to tell Flair. I hate that because at least Flair got a chance to redeem himself but week after week he is made to look like a pathetic older man.

Flair is so damn fine and buff he looks better then 90 percent of their talent. I am going to start to pray that Flair sees what we see. If Hunter, Batista, Orton, Cena etc think Flair is so damn great why don't they tell the writers he deserves better then this. I wish someone would. 


GREG: ok everyone i didn't like last nights segment with flair and orton either and i admit it didn't make much sence but at least flair didn't get beat up real bad or anything like that, what i didn't like about it was it did nothing to show to flair's strengths, when you got a person with the charisma and microphone ability of ric flair then you have to let him use his strengths to get a storyline to work. he is retired which means he can't wrestle in the storyline so the next best thing flair can do is talk trash on the microphone, so vinny mac creates a storyline last night on raw were flair basicly don't talk and then mr. kennedy comes out and everybody is confused as hell as to why he came out and then they don't even show flair again the entire segment. my question is "WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST WITNESS?  DOES WWE HAVE 2ND GRADERS BOOKING THIS CRAP???????
KENNY: You guys are taking things to serious.    yeah last night's raw sucked but i laughed through Randy Orton's promo on Flair. I clearly remember about a year ago hearing Orton say on a legit interview that Flair was one of his idols and that he was close to his dad Bob Orton and that Flair was the greatest wrestler of all time so to hear Orton say that silly stuff to Flair last night made me laugh. lol  Randy we know better and we know how you really feel about Flair.  lol  Randy
JAY DAVIS: What a great website and message board! I've been a Flair fan going back to 1985 and it doesn't get any better than this. I respect "The Man" and know that he could whip as he said, "90% of the guys in the locker room" but I'm not happy to see how Ric gets booked on RAW- getting beat up by Jericho and having is clothes ripped off (even though he's done this angle several times with Steamboat, Magnum, Morton, etc.) and then getting put down based on age and painted as a has-been. Let's see we still see Vince out there getting pushed pretty good and how old is he again? (Yeah, it's easy when you can put yourself over- since you own the company). Ric deserves so much better- you won't see Hogan out there getting the bums rush....You're still the man to me Ric!

Best Wishes David- Keep up that great work! 
SAMMY: Big TNA Impact this thursday featuring the debut of Victoria (formerly of wwe) i heard the reason she left wwe is because she got tired of a lack of a push from Vince McMahon.

CHRIS: Ric Flair is without doubt still the greatest entertainer in wrestling today. He is easily the best on WWE.
But it's so annyoying and degrading to the Champ the way he is being used on that show.
What i cant understand is why when he is beaten up by jericho and now Orton that he just lies there been pummeled and offers almost zero resistance!
What does Vince have to gain by using the greatest ever so poorly?
I would love to see Ric back in the ring.
As for Raw i usually only bother to watch the show when Ric is on and the ratings go up.
Long live Ric Flair
Whooooooooooooooooo
Stylin and profilin
 
chris
UK

JOSH: I know Vinny Mac don't have a clue how to use the Naitch so I hope the rumors are true that Flair is negotiating with promoters to work several overseas tours in Europe, China, Egypt and South Africa, this will be something new and fresh for the Naitch and more importantly it gets him away from that damn circus of wwe because them retards are clueless.

PATRICIA: Woooo the Naitch was looking so fine on raw with his Buff arms, he has definately been in the weight room, his arms are really buff and looking good. woooooooooo

ROBERT: IT IS A CRYING SHAME THAT SOMEBODY THE STATURE OF VINCE MCMAHON DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA HOW TO BOOK RIC FLAIR. MOST PEOPLE TALK ABOUT MCMAHON AND SAY HE IS SO SMART. IF HE IS SO SMART THEN WHY AIN'T HE SHOWING IT WHEN IT COMES TO BOOKING RIC FLAIR??? ANSWER THAT??

CODY: thats right josh i think it's so cool that flair is going to probably wrestle again and i am really glad that it won't be with wwe. i am sure vince mcmahon probably thought that flair was going to wrestle for wwe first after he came back so you know with vince's big ego he don't like to lose but this time he lost to all the overseas promotors that talked flair into wrestling with them first. lol i like it. woooooooooo
SCOTT L: Woooooo "The Man" is getting ready to Un-Retire and business will indeed pick up courtesy of the greatest to ever lace up a pair of boots Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

KYLE: Sean Waltman (X-pac) recently said that he would be honored to step in the ring with Ric Flair.Waltman currently wrestles for a wrestling promotion in Mexico and he said that Flair is his idol and even though he has wrestled him before he would be honored to wrestle him again.There is a good chance of that happening because Mexico is one of the places that is on the overseas tour that Flair is rumored to wrestle on. This is going to get interesting.

DEREK: Heck with wwe if it wouldn't for the Naitch I would never watch it,sammy is right about tna it is better then wwe,the only thing wwe's got that tna don't is more money,tna has better storylines and i am happy to see victoria leave wwe for tna.  webmaster dave keep up the good work man your site is the bomb!

JENNIFER: One word can describe the new picture page on the site Webmaster Dave and that word is AWESOME!!!!!!!!! I love them, and the background is great too. AWESOME job. Your site keeps getting better and better. Woooooo Ric Flair is still the man Wooooooo
BOBBY: Hey I read some news about Flair wrestling again but not for wwe. David could you post the info below on your message board? I appreciate it

ďNature BoyĒ Ric Flair may be back in WWE, but that doesnít mean heís going to wrestle there.

Flair does plan to wrestle later this year ó outside the country, with no ties to WWE, as part of a special overseas tour that will yield substantial payoffs to the Legendary Hall Of Famer.

ďI donít think anyone could begrudge me for throwing my wrestling gear on (overseas),Ē said Flair.

He said heís still unsure what his responsibilities will be, but that his new WWE role likely will be similar to the goodwill ambassador position he assumed last year before parting ways with the company in August.

Flair said he will continue to fulfill his obligations regarding scheduled autograph sessions and personal appearances.

ďIíll still be able to do my stuff,Ē Flair said.


JEFFREY: I went to a Boston Bruins Hockey game recently and when the Bruins scored a goal they played the Ric Flair Woooooo!!
KYLE: BIG NEWS RIC FLAIR FANS, RIC FLAIR HAS MADE IT CLEAR TO WWE AND VINCE MCMAHON THAT HE WAS NOT GOING TO WORK WITH THEM IN THE FUTURE IF HE WAS NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO STILL DO HIS AUTOGRAPH SIGNINGS AND PERSONAL APPEARANCES AND FROM WHAT I READ I THINK WWE AGREED, ALTHOUGH THEY DID WANT FLAIR TO STOP WORKING FOR ROH (RING OF HONOR) BUT FLAIR DIDN'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT. SO IT'S ALL GOOD FOR FLAIR, HE LEFT WWE LAST AUGUST BECAUSE WWE WOULDN'T LET HIM DO HIS OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES SO HE LEFT AND IN THE LAST 10 MONTHS HE HAS MADE HUGE AMOUNTS OF CASH THAT HE WOULDN'T HAVE MADE IF HE WOULD HAVE STAYED IN WWE.

SO HE DECIDED TO GO BACK TO WWE BUT MADE SURE THAT HE COULD STILL DO HIS AUTOGRAPH SIGNINGS AND OTHER OUTSIDE APPEARANCES SO THIS IS A WIN WIN SITUATION FOR FLAIR WHO IN THE FUTURE WILL BE GETTING A PAYCHECK FROM WWE AND WILL STILL BE GETTING A PAYCHECK FROM ALL HIS AUTOGRAPH SIGNING APPEARANCES TOO AND LETS DON'T FORGET HIS OVERSEAS TOUR LATER IN THE YEAR THAT HE WILL PROBABLY BE WRESTLING ON THAT WILL GARNER HIM A BOAT LOAD OF MONEY, AND IT WOULD APPEAR THAT HE MADE 100% SURE THAT HE COULD DO THE OVERSEAS TOUR OR HE WOULDN'T GO BACK TO WWE.  GOOD FOR YOU RIC, SHOW WWE WHO IS BOSS!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!


TIM: are they any way possible that we can find out if ric flair is going to be on raw tomorrow night or not?? i can't stand wasting my time watching the whole show if ric ain't going to to at least be on the show. if someone knows then please let me know
MIKE: Bobby thanks for informing us on Flair's future plans and Kyle you said it best man. Flair was smart this time he ain't going to let wwe sh#t him again. I am so damn glad that Ric refused to sign with wwe unless they agreed to his demands. Yes Kyle is right Go Get "Em Ric! Wooo!
DALE: I pray that the Nature Boy walks the isle on raw because it BLOWS when he don't appear. Wooooooo
JASON: Great points made Kyle I have to agree with you!
BRENT JACKSON: Flair fanatics are we going to be able to find a copy of Flair's matches overseas on dvd if he comes back to wrestle again?????? I am worried that we won't find a copy.What can we do to find out?
LEWIS: David the new pictures are killer.Great shots of the Champ and his new Lady is very attractive. WOOOOO "great job"
WALLY: Hey webmaster Dave I heard that Mickey Rourke Is a big big Flair fan. Is this true?
DAVID BRANDON: "Diamonds are Forever" and all the Overseas Wrestling fans are soon to find out that "So Is Ric Flair"   Wooo!!
MARK Z: if wwe tries to stop flair again from making all his autograph signing appearances then if i was ric i would leave and never ever come back. wwe's got one more chance and if they screw ric over this time they could lose him forever.
SAMMY: Hey TNA and Flair fans,I got a preview for TNA'S Impact broadcast this thursday night.Thanks to the one and only webmaster David Matthews for posting my e-mails on the board.Thanks man!

RICHARD: Is Vince McMahon a Idiot?? He just released one of the biggest stars in the wwe Mr. Kennedy in a move that has to be considered one of the most ignorant moves i have seen in recent memory. Mr. Kennedy is one of the best wrestlers wwe had and now he is a free agent and we all know what that means don't we wrestling fans? not sure how long of a no compete clause Mr. Kennedy has in his contract if he even has one but there is little doubt that he will joining Total Nonstop Action (TNA) in the future.
GREG RENFRO: Good for Flair. He has been known in the past to let wwe run over him a little and it's great to see him telling them how it's going to be. In my opinion wwe was never in the right for trying to sabatoge Flair's autograph signings and personal appearances to begin with, that's why he left,  this time he made sure that without his outside events he would not agree to come back to wwe which is a great business move. don't you Flair fans agree?
DENNIS: I'm not trying to answer for the Webmaster but Wally yes Mickey Rourke is a Big Flair fan in fact Flair and Roddy Piper helped train Rourke for the wrestler movie.
BRIAN: Mark Z yeah I would imagine that Ric is getting tired of WWE trying to screw him around when it comes to his autograph signings, the news with Ric going overseas and wrestling is a major deal and thank god that Ric didn't agree to a deal with wwe without making sure that the wwe morons ain't going to screw him over on the overseas tour. I am so excited that the naitch will wrestle again and hopefully we can eventually see the matches somewhere down the road.
JC: You make some valid points Kyle great post. I enjoy reading the message board every day.
MICHAEL HARMON: I wish I knew one way or the other if The Naitch is going to walk that isle tonight on raw. If I knew for sure I would watch it live but I don't know so I guess I'll just tape it and go through it and just watch Flair. I am a wrestling fan but Flair is the only wrestler that I can't miss everytime he is on. The other wrestlers I can miss but I can't miss Flair. I have watched Flair for 26 years and I ain't going to stop now. WooOOOoooOOOoooOOOooo
RODNEY: I think someone from WWE visits the message board and has been reading our posts regarding the correct use of the greatest wrestler of all time and still, the most exciting figure involved with the sport, none other than the Nature Boy Ric Flair. I wrote last week that if you want to get the most out of Naitch, you have to let him be Ric Flair and last night, he was Ric Flair, the Dirtiest Player in the Game.

He was great on the mic, he was vintage Flair in the fight with Orton. Even though he ended up getting RKOíed in the ring, he first had to get jumped by DiBiase and Rhodes while he had Orton in the figure-four on the announcers table. That was the way that you use Flair to generate heat. Let him talk and then let him fight. And let him fight in a situation that makes him and whoever he is fighting look good and last night was a perfect example of how to do that. I could watch Flair do that sort of thing for however long he wants to do it because it was entertaining and it hearkened back to who we all grew up with and loved.

The man is 60 years old and still relevant to todayís fans as much as he is to those of us who have been watching wrestling for 30+ years. He may be the oldest ride at the park, but last night Space Mountain proved that he still has the longest line. He put Orton and Batista over last night in style because he got to be himself, Ric Flair. Truth be known, if Batista was a better actor and could have been a little bit more believable with his outrage at the end last night, this match with Orton would be off the charts.

I would be willing to bet that more people would pay to see Flair and Orton in the cage on Sunday than Orton and Batista. To quote Toby Keith, Flair might not be as good as he once was, but heís as good once as he ever was. He showed that last night. Long live the Nature Boy. Woooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


DEREK: RIC FLAIR PUT ON A HELL OF A SHOW ON RAW MONDAY. THE MAN IS "FN" INCREDIBLE!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
JOHN M: the parking lot brawl match with Flair and Orton from raw was the most entertaining match i've seen in the last year. flair should come back full time. them chops he nailed orton with were loud as crap, flair has still got it.
STEVEN: WWE put Ric Flair in the main event, that is the best way to increase your ratings, maybe they are getting more intelligent.
ALEX: I read a blog on a wrestling website from a guy who has a idea on how wwe can book Ric Flair's return to the active roster.He goes into detail about how he would do it and it's interesting.I hope all you Flair fans like it. Thanks webmaster Dave!!

Ric Flair: How I Would Book His Return

During a backstage segment of Raw, Ric Flair talks to Batista about having an itch to be back in the ring.

Batista is very cautious of this decision and tries to tell Flair that times have changed, and, although he still thinks he is the greatest of all-time, Flair should let it go.

Flair approaches Vickie Guerrero and asks her for some time next week on Raw. Vickie asks Flair what he has in mind and he tells her that Batista said some things to him tonight that really made him think about his career. He just wants to set the record straight and finally just make this decision final.

The following week on Raw, Ric Flair opens the show. Flair gives an emotional speech giving his favorite memories in the ring.

He cries and tells the fans that wrestling is in his blood and he just cannot let it go. When he retired it felt right, but it doesnít feel right to be away from the ring.

He wants to die in this ring.

He still feels he can be the ĎNatch and go better than the Superstars in the back.

He asks the fans if he can come back. He says he doesnít know anything outside of wrestling and he needs it to survive, that he will die without it.

He announces that he wants to be an active wrestler again and will do whatever it takes to be back on the active roster.

Randy Orton comes out and warns Flair that he is making the wrong decisionóthat his time has passed. Wrestling has changed and it has passed him by.

Guerrero comes out and asks Flair if he really wants to come back. Flair says more than anything in the world. Vickie then says if he can beat Randy Orton next week on Raw he will be reinstated as an active wrestler on Raw.

The next week on Raw, Batista and Flair have a conversation in the back. Batista says Flair should just manage him and not do anything that may harm his body. He reminds Flair that he has nothing to prove.

Flair tells Batista there is nothing anyone can say to him to change his mind. Flair says that if he dies in that ring he will die a happy man and there is nothing that can change that.

Orton dominates Flair for a good portion of the match until Flair makes a huge comeback. As we all think Flair is set to pull out the upset the referee takes a bump and Legacy make their way down the ramp.

Batista catches up to them and takes them out. He continues to the ring and while Flair has Orton in the figure four. Batista signals for a new referee to come down as he stands over Orton and Flair.

Once the referee enters the ring Batista asks him if he is ready, when the referee tells him he is ready all of a sudden Batista attacks Flair.

Raw ends.

The following weeks see Flair and Batista feud with the stipulation that Batista tells Flair he has to beat him to get back in WWE. Batista spent so long in Evolution learning from Flair and doing as he was told, and Flair should have done the same for Batista.

Batista feels that Flair disrespected him and wonít pass the torch as he promised and now he will make sure Flair canít return to the ring.

Flair beats Batista in the blow off match to get back on the roster, and that is how the Naitch gets back on the active roster.


KENNETH: Rodney you're right the Flair match was great, Flair brought his A game didn't he? Yes he did! wooooooooooooooooooooooo
DANNY: Jim Ross, Michael Cole, Todd Grisham and Matt Striker all have commented on why they think Ric Flair is the Greatest World Heavyweight Champion of all Time and they made some great statements. David I figured that all the Flair fans that get on the Message-Board would like their comments so please post them.

"Ric Flair. Just for the amount of time that he held the title and the fact that the title itself is associated with his name."
[Matt Striker]

"Ric Flair. Heís the greatest World Heavyweight Champion thereís ever been, inside and outside the ring. He put us on the map as an entertainment industry beyond wrestling."
[Michael Cole]

"Ric Flair. He was 16 times ĎThe Man,í wrestled around the globe and became one of the most recognized and revered champs of all time. 'Naitch is the greatest in-ring Superstar of all time."
[Jim Ross]

"Ric Flair. He was the complete package. In the ring he was untouchable, and he was untouchable on the mic, too. The numbers donít lie. He was everything that a champion should be."
[Todd Grisham]


ROBBIE: IF THERE IS ANY DOUBTERS OUT THERE WHO THINK THAT JUST BECAUSE THE NAITCH IS 60 YEARS OF AGE THAT HE CAN'T STILL GET IN THAT RING AND KICK SOME ASS THEN AFTER WITNESSING THE RIC FLAIR AND RANDY ORTON PARKING LOT BRAWL MATCH SOMETHING TELLS ME THAT THEY QUICKLY CHANGED THEIR MINDS. RIC FLAIR BEAT THE SH#T OUT OF RANDY ORTON FOR MOST OF THE MATCH AND IF LEGACY WOULDN'T HAVE COME IN THE RING TO HELP SAVE ORTON THEN HE WOULD HAVE BEEN A DEAD MAN. WOOOOOOO HELL YEAH THE NAITCH IS STILL GOT IT WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
CHRISTOPHER: I like the ideas on how WWE could book Ric's return to their roster but I had rather him be on TNA's roster cause TNA rules!! wooooooo!!!
TREVER MATHIS: rodney if somebody from wwe was actually reading the posts on the message board it would be the smartest thing they have ever done!!!!!
FLAIR4LIFE: i won't get so angry at vince mcmahon as long as he lets the nature boy do his personal appearances which have nothing to do with wwe. Flair is in control of the situation thank god!
STEVEN: LAST WEEK ON RAW WHEN FLAIR WRESTLED RANDY ORTON IN A PARKING LOT BRAWL MATCH IN WHICH FLAIR REALLY HAD HIS WAY WITH ORTON MOST OF THE MATCH AND PUT ON A HELL OF A PERFORMANCE AND WERE I THOUGHT WWE ACTUALLY (FOR A CHANGE) BOOKED FLAIR CORRECTLY IT LEFT ME THINKING THAT WWE FINALLY PUT THEIR THINKING CAP ON----BOY WAS I WRONG??----I WAS WRONG BECAUSE WWE AGAIN DROPPED THE BALL LAST NIGHT AT THE WWE PPV DURING THE BATISTA ORTON MATCH.

IN THE END BATISTA WON THE MATCH BUT THE PROBLEM IS THAT THERE WAS NO RIC FLAIR TO BE FOUND DURING THE BOUT. WHAT SHOULD HAVE TOOK PLACE AND WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER BOOKING WAS THAT FLAIR SHOULD HAVE CAME OUT AT THE END OF THE MATCH AND PUNCHED ORTON OR DID SOMETHING TO GIVE BATISTA THE ADVANTAGE AND THEN BATISTA COULD HAVE GOT THE PINFALL, THEN FLAIR COULD HAVE GOT REVENGE FOR WHAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK ON RAW.

I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY WWE CAN'T SEE WHAT ALL THE WRESTLING FANS SEE. THEY HAD A GOOD THING GOING WITH THE FLAIR/BATISTA/ORTON STORYLINE AND THEN BOOKED A GREAT PARKING LOT BRAWL MATCH AND THEN THEY RUIN EVERYTHING BY NOT FINISHING THE STORYLINE UP ON A PERFECT NOTE BY HAVING FLAIR COME TO THE RING LAST NIGHT TO HELP BATISTA AND ALSO GET HIS REVENGE ON RANDY ORTON. SO MUCH FOR HAVING CONFIDENCE IN WWE.


SAMMY: Hey TNA fans here is my weekly preview for this thursday's TNA Impact broadcast. Thanks as usual Webmaster Dave!

PREVIEW FOR THURSDAY'S TNA "iMPACT!" ON SPIKE TV: MORE NEWS ON THE JUNE 21 "SLAMMIVERSARY" PAY-PER-VIEW

On Thursday, TNA Wrestling returns to SpikeTV at 9/8c for two hours of Total Nonstop Action as the road to the June 21 "Slammiversary" Pay-Per-View epic event continues!

The below is a preview of what is scheduled for the broadcast (card subject to change)

- The huge King of the Mountain Qualifying main event will feature a battle of Main Event Mafia members and longtime rivals as Sting faces Kurt Angle, with the winner advancing to Slammiversary

- TNA World Heavyweight Champion and Executive Shareholder Mick Foley plans to speak out on TNA Founder Jeff Jarrett's actions this past week involving TNA senior official Earl Hebner

- TNA World Tag Team Champions Team 3D will battle the tandem of Consequences Creed and Alex Shelley

- Plus, more news and matches will be announced for the Slammiversary Pay-Per-View event! 


RICKY B: Hey I am hoping to meet the Naitch next month and get his autograph,he is my idol.I met him one time back in '96 at his gold's gym and he was super nice.It's no surprise everybody loves him because he is so nice to his fans and a true class act. Ric Flair is my all time hero!! Wooo!
JEREMY: WOOOO RIC FLAIR IS THE ULTIMATE KISS STEALIN WHEELIN DEALIN LIMOUSINE RIDIN JET FLYIN SON OF A GUN WHO HAS KISSED ALL THE GIRLS AND MADE 'EM CRY. LONG LIVE THE MAN WHO HAS MADE THOUSANDS OF WOMEN LUST AFTER SPACE MOUNTAIN!! RIC FLAIR IS THE FREAKIN MAN!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
BILLY LAMBERT: My brother ordered the wwe pay-per-view last night to mainly see ric flair thinking he would do a run in at the end of the batista and randy orton match but he didn't and my brother was pissed. the only reason he ordered the ppv to begin with was because he thought he would get to see flair. wwe knew that a bunch of people would order it thinking flair would be there so in my opinion they should have told everyone beforehand that he wouldn't going to be there that way they wouldn't have ordered it. but the reason they didn't do that was to screw people out of their money. ain't that right??
ALAN J: Does anyone know why Ric Flair wouldn't at the ppv last nite? I think it would have been the right time for the Naitch to strike and help his good friend Batista during his bout with Orton? WWE is totally behind the 8 ball in their booking. I don't think they have a clue what real wrestling fans want to see. That is why TNA is getting all the attention and good feedback because they are a lot better then WWE. The only time i had rather watch WWE over TNA is when Ric Flair is on WWE. That is the only time.
JOHN: wwe is so stupid to let a talent like Victoria (she will be called Tara in tna) go; she was one of if not the best diva wrestler in wwe; now that she is in tna she might actually get a push that she has deserved the last two years. whoever said that recently on the board is right. in tna you can actually get a push but in wwe you can't because the same ones with all the egos like triple h always tries to hold people down.
MATT: Webmaster Dave dude you are the man!! Your "Flair" site rules and it's the best wrestling site ever. Wooo!
TIMOTHY: ric flair proved 100% in his match against randy orton that he could still wrestle any time he wanted to and do a great job. did you flair fanatics hear that one chop that flair nailed orton with?? my god what a chop, i think orton's chest was beat red after that one. ric flair has the greatest chop ever in wrestling.woooooooo!
NWAOLDSCHOOLRULES: So how many Flair fans out there think that the Naitch will wrestle on his overseas tour in late August?? He will be in South Africa, Europe, China, Egypt among many more places and the rumor is that he will wrestle, they have offered him big money to wrestle so I hope he does it. I also hope whoever is in charge of the production of his appearances will video his matches were all the fans can witness this historic event. I see that I am not the only one worried about this, I have read other comments in the last couple weeks from other Flair fans but wouldn't it be ignorant to not record Ric Flair wrestling again? of course it would so I don't think we have anything to worry about.
DWAYNE PARKER: Raw Sucked last night with no Flair.  David could you please inform all of us on the site the next time "The Man" is supposed to be on raw because I am not going to watch another Raw to see Ric and then be dissapointed because he don't appear. It sucks doing that plus it is a waste of my time. If I knew Flair wouldn't going to appear on Raw then I could have been doing something else with my time instead of wasting it like I did watching that bull crap. David could you do this for all the Flair fans??
GREG: Wooooo what a fantastic match between "Nature Boy" Ric Flair and the "Legend Killer" Randy Orton. "I know Orton is tough but Flair surprised me being off for over a year and coming back and not missing a beat"  Flair is almost not human, who else at his age of 60 could take a year off and come back and still have a great match like he did? the passion that he has for wrestling is something that every athlete should strive for. He is the greatest of all time and he is still the man!! Wooooo!!!
ERNIE: What's Causin all this!  My Shoes cost more then your house! To be the man, You gotta beat the man!  I live in the biggest house on the biggest side of town!  It's time to Style and Profile  I am the Real World's Heavyweight Champion. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
PAUL WESTBROOK: Breaking News Fanatics! Being that this coming Monday's 3 hour RAW spectacular is eminating from Charlotte North Carolina, I happy inform you all that the new GM of RAW will be our very own Nature Boy Ric Flair! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
RICHARD: Dwayne i understand you being upset because Flair wouldn't on raw and yes it does suck without him but man i think the webmaster david is probably too busy to post on the site every week whether or not Flair is gonna be appearing on raw,and a lot of times i don't even think David knows himself because wwe intentionally don't report it on their site or make a official statement because they want all the fans to think that Flair is going to appear that way we will watch every week.

McMahon is very sneaky.They use Flair for ratings when they officially inform everyone that he is going to appear but when he is for sure not going to appear they don't report it because they know that a sh#t load of people will turn the damn channel if they know he won't be on the show.That is how Vinny Mac and wwe operate.That ain't being fair to the fans but Vinny Mac don't care about the fans anyway.He only cares about using people and ratings and the one thing he is smart at is realizing that Flair is a ratings god!


WILLIAM: Hey Paul that would be great if Flair become GM of raw but were did you get your info from?? I searched on the net for info about it today and all i could find was this short statement and it is not etched in stone that Ric will become GM yet.

There has been no decision made regarding who will take over as the GM of Raw, but with the show being in Charlotte Monday, many are assuming that it will be Ric Flair.


JOSEPH: Vince Mcmahon tried to get Flair to become general manager of smackdown a month ago and Flair said no so why would he say yes to raw now? don't get me wrong i would like it cause i would get to see flair more consistently but i'm not so sure he will do it.
RUSSELL: Woooo Flair fanatics that would be so cool if the Naitch accepted Vince's offer and decided to be GM of raw. "I am ready to see Flair lay the smackdown on some candy a#ses" which is what he will do if he accepts the position. Woooo Flair General Manager;; Do it Ric Wooooo
SEAN MARSDEN: David i like the  Flair Autograph Signings  page and how you update it. I am going to try to go to Walmart in Burlington to see The Champ next month. Flair is doing a lot of Walmart appearances now i see. didn't he sign a contract for 10 or 20 Walmart appearances?? Woooooooooo
KYLE: I guarantee every wrestling fan reading this post that if Ric Flair wanted to step back in the ring he could come back and wrestle full time and OUT-PERFORM every young PUNK in the wwe!!!!!!! I ain't talking about out-performing them in the script i am talking about for real!!! what Flair has that all the young PUNKS don't have is PASSION and CHARISMA. All you have to do is look at what kind of physical shape Ric is in and that tells you everything you need to know about what he can still do, and that is the bottom line because the Woooo says so!!!! Wooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!
LEWIS: Sammy I can tell how much you like TNA wrestling and I must say that I agree with ya man. "Double J" Jeff Jarrett is the King of the Mountain and my favorite wrestler not just in TNA but in all of wrestling. Flair is my all time favorite but if he don't come out of retirement then Jarrett is my current favorite wrestler. I wish Flair would go to TNA and he and Jarrett could wrestle each other. Remember when they wrestled last time in 2000 when WCW was a sinking ship and Flair was so depressed and his heart wouldn't in it so it wouldn't as good a match as it should have been but with Flair's awesome showing in his match with Orton last week i bet he and Jarrett could have a great match now. Congrats to the Real World's Heavyweight Champion on his great match with Randy Orton. I knew Flair could still kick some ass and style and profile. Wooooo!

CHARLES: WOW What a Flair Website Webmaster David. I have been a Naitch fan for about 27 years but due to financial issues I have been unable to own a computer in the last 4 years until last week. When I got my new computer I started searching on the internet on the "Nature Boy" and rfgolds.com came up first and I clicked on it and my eyes almost got so large they popped out of my head I was so shocked at your site.

I used to go to every Flair site I could find several years ago and I seen some good ones but none of them can touch your site David. "Dude how long has it took you to collect the massive info that you have collected about Flair? You must have some good connections don't you? I have never seen a tribute site to a celeb with as much info on one person then you got on Ric Flair. GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT job dude. Your site is great. You are doing a great job.

Does Ric Flair know about your website?? If he does he must be so humbled and proud of you for doing such a wonderful tribute to him. Thank You David for creating a website that all us Flair fans can go to and bring us back to our youth. When I go through your site it takes me back to when I was a kid and I used to get up early on Saturday Mornings with my Grandpa and we would watch Ric Flair on NWA pro wrestling.

WOW those were the good ole days that can't be replaced and will never be matched. My grandpa loved Ric Flair and I never missed Ric on a Saturday morning because of him. I get goose bumps and emotional thinking of my grandpa sitting in his chair drinking his coffee and watching wrestling and asking me who I was rooting for. David your Ric Flair website has brought me back to my youth when life was so simple and easy and with the tough battles life has dealt me lately your site is the perfect medicine I need.

David Thank You my friend you have done something so special to me I can't put into words. Your website at this point in my life is just what I needed. May God Bless My Grandpa's Soul and when I die I want to go to heaven to watch wrestling with Grandpa again. Thank You again and God Bless you David.


KYLE: I got a question for every wrestling fan reading this message board. "What in the hell does Donald Trump have to do with pro wrestling????? I watched some of wwe raw monday night wanting to see the Nature Boy walk the isle and instead of seeing Ric Flair I see Donald Trump who has no damn business being on a wrestling program because he has nothing to do with pro wrestling. It mad me mad as hell because wwe is trying to insult my intelligence with their stupidity every monday night. Who actually believes that Donald Trump really bought monday night raw from Vince McMahon??? lol how stupid can you be?? I am Done watching wwe except for when Ric Flair makes a appearance on their program. I am tired of their damn ignorance. Their storylines are so childish that a first grader could book their show. The only thing wwe has on tna is that Ric Flair appears on wwe and he don't appear on tna. If not for Ric Flair then I would never watch wwe ever again. tna ain't better then Ric Flair but they sure as hell are better then wwe.
SAMMY: Dave don't worry about the problem with the message board I know you couldn't prevent the problem,but would you please post this preview for TNA's Slammiversary PPV for me? Thanks Webmaster Dave

RICKY: VERY VERY DISSAPOINTED IN WWE RAW MONDAY NIGHT. I WANT TO KNOW WHY RIC FLAIR WOULDN'T THERE?
PHILLIP: "Trying to watch wwe raw without Ric Flair is like drinking a Hot Beer"    Nobody wants to drink a Hot Beer everybody wants a Cold Beer, the excitement of watching Ric Flair on raw is like drinking a Ice Cold Beer but trying to watch raw without the Naitch is like drinking a Hot Beer, and I think the Naitch would like us all to drink nothing but Ice Cold Beers. The Nature Boy loves to party and drink Beers all night long and so do I so get Ric Flair back on monday nights because I like Cold Beer!! Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!
JOE: I was at the charlotte coliseum for raw monday night and thank god i didn't have to pay for my ticket, one of my friends won a free ticket and gave it to me so mine was free and i am glad it was because the whole night of wrestling sucked and i would have hated to waste my money on it, Ric Flair not appearing made almost everybody in the building not able to get in a good mood, there was a lack of excitement in the crowd and no doubt it was because we all thought that Ric was going to be announced as GM of raw. there were 4 "We Want Flair" chants and they were loud. I was totally upset that I didn't get to see Ric but at least I didn't waste my money but I feel sorry for all them people who went there wanting to see Flair and they had to go home unhappy. WWE shouldn't trick the fans like they do.
RODNEY BERGMAN: What is the latest on Ric wrestling overseas? does anyone know? has he made his decision yet ? I hope he does it because he proved against randy orton that the real worlds champion can still get it done in the ring.
CALVIN: i don't know what is going on with flair and mcmahon and why ric wouldn't on raw but i have a feeling that vinny mac is being a a#s hole when it comes to flair's outside ventures so if i had one piece of advice to ric it would be to stand your ground and do what you feel you need to do that is best for your future, vince mcmahon don't know what is best for flair only flair knows and ric flair needs to understand that he don't need wwe but wwe needs him because without him they freakin suck big time. my god look at the money that flair has made in the last 9 months without wwe so he sure don't need them.
JENNIFER LOVES THE NAITCH: Just finished watching the ric flair definitive collection dvd set again this past weekend, that makes 5 times i have watched it, i could watch ric flair every day and never get tired of him he is so cool, and more imporantly he is a sexy man that turns me on. I love it when he talks about Space Mountain. Ric Flair is and always will be the one and only "Man"  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
BRADLEY: DOES VINCE MCMAHON THINK THAT DONALD TRUMP WILL GET HIM HIGH RATINGS?? COME ON VINCE GIVE ME A BREAK, DONALD TRUMP WILL NOT GET WWE HIGHER RATINGS BUT THE ONE MAN WHO WILL DO IT AND WHO HAS DONE IT FOR YEARS IS RIC FLAIR. KYLE IS RIGHT TO ASK WHAT IS TRUMP DOING ON A WRESTLING SHOW? VINCE MCMAHON IS AGAIN PUTTING FRIENDSHIPS AHEAD OF SMART BUSINESS DECISIONS, HE AND TRUMP ARE REAL LIFE FRIENDS SO HE THOUGHT HE WOULD USE HIM IN A WWE STORYLINE BUT THE PROBLEM IS THAT NOBODY WANTS TO SEE DONALD TRUMP ON A WRESTLING SHOW BUT AS USUAL MCMAHON DON'T CARE ABOUT WHAT THE FANS WANT TO SEE BECAUSE HE ALWAYS PUTS HIMSELF AHEAD OF WHAT THE FANS WANT ANYWAY!
DEREK: Hey Charles great post man!!! i really enjoyed reading it. great story about what Ric Flair and wrestling meant to your grandpa. thanks for sharing that with us.
CHAD: You guys are so right about Vince Mcmahon and the "Nature Boy", Mcmahon thinks he can run over everybody with his power and maybe a few years ago he could run over Ric but not anymore, things have changed in the last year since Ric Flair retired, he has recently signed a deal with Coca-Cola, Walmart, Nascar, Red Alert Video Game, Schewels Furniture and he signed a deal with Donruss to produce the first ever licensed autographed Ric Flair trading card so after doing all that do you think he has to answer to anybody much less Vince Mcmahon? I don't think so!!!!
RIDGE: Yes It's cool to see Flair on tv but I don't really care if he ever shows back up on wwe programming because wwe sucks and I don't care about watching their product anymore. I like Ring of Honor and TNA the best. Vinny Mac has the most money and that is the reason people still talk about them and that is the reason they get the sponsors for their broadcasting but when you really get down to the wrestling part of it then Ring of Honor and TNA Blows them away. Vince Mcmahon likes to come to the ring with the "No Chance In Hell" theme song well I think there is "No Chance In Hell" that WWE is better then TNA. TNA rules!!!! I just wish Ric would go there and walk that isle with the Stinger one more time. Woooo!
EDDIE MORROW: Charles that is a very touching post and it is the truth about NWA pro wrestling from the 1980's. It will never be as good ever again as it was back in them days. When I think of Ric Flair coming to the ring with the most important world title in professional wrestling history the NWA world title wrapped around the waist it sends chills up and down my spine. When you think back to them days and you think of the Sh#tty junk that wwe is showing every monday night it makes me ashamed to be a wrestling fan. I am embarrassed to be a current wrestling fan because wrestling to me is "Nature Boy" Ric Flair and the NWA from the 1980's.
CHRIS G: Woooo very soon i'll be going to Walmart in Burlington, NC (Flair Country) to meet the greatest wrestler of all time the Naitch and get his autograph and hopefully chat with him, I have never met him before so i am excited to say the least. Woooo Wooooo Woooooo Woooo
JAMES: Hey Flair fans I bought a copy of the "Judgement Day" dvd which was a ppv from last month and they got a special bonus feature of Ric Flair and Batista in the dressing room that wouldn't on the ppv.It is a short clip but it was a great bonus to the dvd that I didn't know was on there when i purchased it.I bought the dvd because this was the night that Flair came back to wwe and he came in the ring at the end of the Batista - Randy Orton match and kicked Orton and Legacy's a#s.He choped the crap out of Cody Rhodes and it was great and the Chicago crowd popped big for Flair.Wooooooo if you missed the ppv this dvd is worth seeing.
DAVID K: EXCELLENT POST CHARLES AND YOU'RE RIGHT MAN NOTHING IS AS GOOD AS THE GOOD OLE DAYS WITH THE NATURE BOY IN THE NWA. WOOOOOO YOU'RE RIGHT AND IT BRINGS ME BACK TO MY YOUTH ALSO.
BLAKE: I got a answer for Kyle, "Hey Kyle" "Donald Trump don't have any business being on a wrestling show" it's laughable and makes no sence but what makes things worse is that most fans were watching especially to see Ric Flair and so it was going to be a bad show anyway because of no Ric but then when they announced Trump owner of raw it was a pure embarrassment and a total disgrace. What a "fn" Joke!!!
ERIC HOBSON: LOL Phillip!   Dude i'm 100% with you on your cold and hot beer comparison. watching wwe raw without Flair is like drinking a hot beer which does suck but watching the "Nature Boy" on wwe raw is like drinking a ice cold beer and there is nothing like a ice cold beer and there is nothing like watching a wrestling program that features the Nature Boy. Ice Cold Beers and Ric Flair Rules Wooooooooooooooooooo
SAMMY WITH BIG TNA NEWS: Hey Ric Flair and TNA fans big news coming out of the TNA ppv tonight so Webmaster Dave if you don't mind post this ppv review and the preview for TNA Impact this thursday on the message board for me. As usual I appreciate it.

JACOB: WOOOO DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER AND SO IS RIC FLAIR. RFGOLDS.COM IS THE BEST WEBSITE ON THE ENTIRE INTERNET. KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK.   WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
BILLY: great posts on the messageboard flair fanatics i enjoy reading them every day. woooo!
TANNER: NO OFFENCE TO ANYONE IN THE MESSAGE BOARD AND YES I AGREE WITH YOU FANS OPINIONS OF HOW STUPID WWE IS BUT SEROUSLY INSTEAD OF BASHING WWE SO MUCH WHAT YOU ALL SHOULD DO IS JUST STOP WATCHING THEIR PROGRAM. QUIT SUPPORTING THEM AND START SUPPORTING TNA. AGAIN NO OFFENCE BECAUSE I AGREE WITH ALMOST EVERY POST ON THE BOARD BUT I'M JUST MAKING A SUGGESTION.
FLAIRRULES: Congratrs to the Nature Boy on receiving the Key To The City of Myrtle Beach SC. That is a huge honor and ever since Flair has retired from wwe he has received numerous awards hadn't he? You people are right he don't need wwe----wwe needs him!!
ROBBIE: Sammy even though most of your posts have nothing to do with Ric Flair i still enjoy reading them because tna is really improved in the last year and i used to like wwe better but i think i had rather watch tna now. tna has a lot of superstars and i really like the main event mafia storyline. all the credit goes to jeff jarrett because he built the company from scratch. without jeff jarrett there would be no tna. i read from a lot of fans on the message-board who want Flair to go to tna but since flair is retired he couldn't wrestle anybody there so if he went there what would he do?
DENNIS: Does anybody know when Ric Flair is going to be on raw again?? It Sucks without him.If anyone has any news on when Flair will return please let me know.WWE bring back the Naitch please. Woooooooooo
RUSSELL ANDREWS: Charles thank you!  your message was heartfelt and passionate but i almost didn't read it. sometimes i don't read all the posts on the message board because i will scan through them if my time is limited but thank god i didn't scan through Charles's post because it was so fantastic. If there is anybody reading this right now that does like me and sometimes scans through the posts on the message board and don't read them all then Charles's post proves to all of us that we should read them ALL and not scan through them. David the ultimate thanks goes to you mr. webmaster because without you posting all your e-mails we wouldn't be able to read so many wonderful comments from so many Ric Flair fans. Thank You David and i hope you always put your e-mails on the message board forever.
JOHN: i got a copy of judgement day on dvd too james and it was cool to see ric come in the ring and clean house on randy orton and legacy, flair took care of business and the bonus feature of flair on the dvd is good too.
FRANK: Dennis i am sure our webmaster could tell us more about this issue but David told me that Vince McMahon tried to talk Flair into being General Manager of raw but Flair refused because Vince keeps trying to prevent Flair from doing all his outside personal appearances. it appears that if McMahon would have agreed to let Flair do his outside activities (which he should) then Flair would be General Manager right now.
KEITH: charles that is one of the best posts i have ever read on the message board and i have been reading them for over a year. great post and i feel the same way as charles does about david's flair site.
J.PATTERSON: The TNA ppv last sunday was a damn good ppv.Everytime i watch a TNA ppv it makes me wish that the Naitch would go to the impact zone, one thing is for sure and that is if Flair would go to TNA i guarantee you he wouldn't have to worry about someone refusing to let him do his autograph signings and personal appearances.TNA owner Dixie Carter ain't like Vince Mcmahon so i bet she wouldn't have a problem with Flair doing them.
BRUCE: David please post this message on the board for me.   "I am tired of reading about Vince McMahon on the message board"   Who cares about McMahon?? David's site is a Ric Flait tribute site not a Vince McMahon site. Screw Vince McMahon, he is not the most important human being ever in professional wrestling Ric "By God" Flair is and as much as I enjoy reading all the great posts from true blue Flair fanatics I get a little tired of reading about Vince McMahon so often. I understand he is a arrogant prick and he don't have a clue how to book Ric Flair but I am tired of reading about him because when people all around the world go to www.rfgolds.com they don't go there to see or read about Vince McMahon they go there to see and read about "Nature Boy" Ric Flair because www.rfgolds.com is a Ric Flair site so can we all please try to keep the topic on Ric Flair and Ric Flair only? Thank You! Woooooooooo!
KENDAL: Ric Flair = The Single Greatest Performer in the History of Professional Wrestling-- End Of Story!!!
DONNIE: THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT TNA PRESIDENT DIXIE CARTER WOULDN'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH RIC FLAIR DOING HIS PERSONAL APPEARANCES AND AUTOGRAPH SIGNINGS BUT UNFORTUNATELY RIC IS TOO LOYAL TO WWE TO GO TO TNA WHICH MEANS WE WON'T EVER SEE HIM THERE.
WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: I would like to talk a little about the recent rumors concerning Ric Flair's current relationship with wwe by sharing the facts with all you fans instead of a bunch of internet rumors that you fans read on "wrestling websites"....I get a lot of e-mails concerning this issue and most of you are really upset because Ric Flair hadn't appeared on wwe as often as you fans think he should. As some of you know I have inside connections that as you can understand I can't reveal but what I can reveal is that Vince McMahon 100% wanted and asked Ric Flair to be General Manager of Raw a couple weeks ago when wwe raw was in Charlotte, NC but the problem is that he wants Ric Flair all to himself by not allowing him to do all the personal appearances, autograph signings and photo sessions that Ric has enjoyed doing in the last year.

This is what caused Ric Flair to flat out refuse to go along with the GM storyline because as most of you fans have seen in the last year Ric Flair has made a ton of money and been able to meet thousands and thousands of fans all over the world by doing his personal appearances and yes I admit I am biased but who can blame Ric Flair for refusing to go along with Vince McMahon if McMahon wouldn't allow Ric Flair to do something that is totally harmless like making personal appearances which in no way whatsoever can do any harm to Vince McMahon or his company.

I totally agree with all the e-mails I have received about this issue because every personal appearance Ric Flair goes to he talks good about the wwe so there is no way that Ric Flair going to a independent wrestling show and doing a promo inside the ring and signing autographs can do any damage to the McMahon wwe empire........... In my opinion Vince McMahon has made a bad business decision in not letting Ric Flair do his outside ventures, many of you fans have asked me about Ric Flair's contract situation, the truth is that there is no contract at the moment between Ric Flair and wwe and when Flair appeared recently for wwe it was a pay per appearance deal only.

In closing let me say that Vince McMahon makes decisions on the fly and changes his mind frequently which means that any day now he could decide to let Ric Flair do his personal appearances and in turn that would mean that Ric Flair will again be back on wwe television but this time I don't think Ric Flair is going to give in to the all mighty McMahon so if Ric Flair is back on television then it will mean that Vince McMahon will be the one who gives in and not Ric Flair and I think it's good when somebody stands up to McMahon instead of giving in to him like has been done too many times in the past.........

There have been too many wrestlers who have gave in to him but it's cool that Ric Flair ain't one of them.......I hope this answers a lot of questions I have received lately and I am sorry if I can't get to every e-mail that I receive......Thanks to everybody who supports my site and thanks to all the e-mails I receive. Keep sending me the e-mails and I will keep posting them.........Thanks...........Webmaster, David Matthews............


PAUL WESTBROOK: Hi Fanatics, Paul Westbrook here and it's been a while. So let me get to the scoop of the day. I read on wrestlezone.com that it is possible Ric Flair and WWE will be parting ways as WWE feel they cant have Ric on their tv shows as he wont allow them to fully control what he does outside the WWE as far as his apperances go. I guess they wont be using Ric on future shows. Now to me, this definately shows what IDIOTS!and I stress IDIOTS! the WWE people are. Absolute morons. Now your thoughts. I leave the floor to you guys. Also I want to say a hi to my friend Cindy.
SAMMY: Hey David here is my weekly TNA Impact preview for you to post on the message board. Thanks man!

SHANE "O" MAC: Hello Flair fans and most importantly hello to our Webmaster himself David Matthews: It has been a long time since I have e-mailed you a post for the board David but I have finally done it. I have loved Ric Flair for many years and he is the greatest of all time but one thing about him I don't like is that he is too damn loyal to that freaking jack ass Vince Mcmahon and wwe. I swear to god I wish he would slap the hell out of Mcmahon and go to TNA home of the impact zone. Honestly are they anyone out there who thinks that Jeff Jarrett and Dixie Carter wouldn't let Ric Flair do all the other stuff outside of wrestling that he wanted to do???

Is there anyone who thinks for a second that if TNA had Flair on their roster that they (Jarrett and Carter) would give a crap whether or not he did autograph signings and personal appearances?? Hell No they wouldn't care so I wish Flair wouldn't so loyal to wwe and he would go to Orlando, Florida home of the impact zone and start kicking ass TNA style, now that is what Ric Flair should do.   P.S. Shane "O" Mac is outta here!!!!


JEFF P: I check out the message board often so if anyone finds out when ric flair will be on raw again I would appreciate it if you would inform me because i tried watching it last monday nite and it completely blows without "The Champ" walking the isle. Flair made raw and it is hard to watch without him.
LACY: Wooooo my husband got me the Ric Flair definitive collection dvd set for my birthday last week and it's awesome to see such a good-looking stud like Ric Flair wrestle in the ring. I would ride Space Mountain more then All Night Long, I want to ride for a week straight without stoping. Wooooo  I love Space Mountain! Wooooooo 
RYAN HIGGINS: PAUL WESTBROOK YOU MY FRIEND ARE EXACTLY RIGHT WWE ARE MORONS AND THEY ARE OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY INVOLVING THE NAITCH! THEY ARE A BUNCH OF INCOMPETENT BUMBLING IDIOTS IF THEY ARE NOT GOING TO LET RIC FLAIR DO HIS PHOTO SESSIONS/PERSONAL APPEARANCES THEN SCREW THEM!!!
WILLIE: Awesome website David, keep up the great work. Retired or not Ric Flair is still the man. Forever! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
FLAIR'S WWE NO-COMPETE CLAUSE ENDS NEXT MONTH: I understand that Ric Flair probably won't ever go to TNA but Flair fans remember that when he left WWE in August of '08 he signed a one year no-compete clause which means he can't wrestle in TNA until August of this year which is only a month away. Can you imagine the feelers that TNA will send out again to Flair next month to try to get him to go there?? TNA sent out feelers to Flair last year to try to get him to come in even though he couldn't have wrestled for them but as of next month Flair will be free to wrestle in TNA. I know he probably won't do it but this is at least worth mentioning.
BRUCE: david great to hear from you and you should sign the message board more often because we like hearing from you, i'm glad you made the flair/wwe situation more clear to me and yes i believe you a lot more then the wrestling sites. vince mcmahon is a complete and utter jack ass and that is all there is to say.
ERIC: The new home page is cool.  "Woooo" It is very different and that is what we love about your website Webmaster Dave is that you consistently update all the time and you never know what you are gonna see. Keep up the FABULOUS work. "Woooooo"
DEREK: THAT'S GREAT TO KNOW ABOUT FLAIR'S NO COMPETE CLAUSE ENDING IN AUGUST WERE HE COULD BE FREE TO WRESTLE IN TNA BUT IT DON'T MATTER BECAUSE HE WON'T DO IT.
GREG: Good word Paul for wwe.    M-O-R-O-N-S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TYLER: I see the background on your home page has changed again and it is awesome just like the site is. Wooooo for rfgolds.com Woooo Woooooo Wooooooo Woooooooo
DALE C: I'M NOT DUMB ENOUGH TO THINK THAT TNA NOW IS BETTER THEN NWA BACK IN THE 70'S AND 80'S BECAUSE NOTHING CAN TOUCH THE NWA FROM BACK THEN BUT TRUST ME WRESTLING FANS TNA TODAY IS THE BEST WRESTLING COMPANY IN THE WORLD. "THE ANGLES AND THE STORYLINES ARE SO MUCH BETTER IN TNA THEN THEY ARE IN WWE"  WWE'S STORYLINES ARE SO STALE AND BORING, HOW MANY TIMES ARE WE GOING TO SEE TRIPLE H VS. RANDY ORTON?? THEY HAVE WRESTLED AT LEAST 50 TIMES AGAINST EACH OTHER ON TV AND PPV THE LAST TWO YEARS AND IT IS SO STALE. "WWE HAS GOT TALENT BUT THE PROBLEM IS THAT THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO USE THEIR TALENT LIKE TNA DOES"

I'M NOT A BIG KURT ANGLE FAN BUT THE MAN IS THE WORLD CHAMP IN TNA AND HE'S POUND FOR POUND THE BEST PURE REAL WRESTLER IN PRO WRESTLING. HE LEGITIMATELY WON A OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL AND HE IS A REAL BAD ASS AND THAT'S THE MAN THAT IS CARRYING THE TORCH IN TNA. WWE IS CONCEITED THINKING THAT THEIR SH#T DON'T STINK BUT I GOT NEWS FOR THEM AND THAT IS THAT TNA IS MOVED AHEAD OF THEM.

IF I MISS WWE IT DON'T BOTHER ME THAT BAD BUT I CAN'T EVER MISS TNA. MY WRESTLING NIGHTS USED TO BE MONDAY NIGTHS BUT NOW IS IT THURSDAY NIGHTS. I KNOW THE NAITCH UNFORTUNATELY WON'T WALK THE ISLE IN TNA BUT EVEN WITHOUT RIC THEY ARE STILL A BETTER WRESTLING COMPANY THEN WWE. TO THE WRESTLING FANS THAT HADN'T GAVE TNA A CHANCE YET DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND TUNE IN ONE THURSDAY NIGHT AND YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID. "THANKS DAVID AND PLEASE POST THIS ON THE BOARD"   

BRAD: Wooooo what's causin all this?  Wooooo it's the Nature Boy Ric Flair. Wooooo


ROBBIE: I bet tna president Dixie Carter offers Flair a trunk load of cash to make the jump next month. I bet Flair gets a zillion feelers too. It must be nice to be Ric Flair and have every promotor in wrestling wanting you. It must be nice!!
MELISSA: Webmaster David it's great to see you sign the Message-Board. I really like hearing your opinion and I know you got connections so I think you should sign the Board more often then you do.Thanks for e-mailing me back yesterday and answering my question too.I really appreciate it.Thank You!!  Love, Melissa 
CHRIS: I am another fan who had rather see Flair stand his ground with Vince McMahon and not see him on wwe raw then to see him give in to that ego maniac just to see Flair on tv. It ain't worth it, Flair is the biggest icon ever in wrestling and I am happy that he is acting like it instead of being gullible. Good for you Ric! I am proud of you!!
KEVIN: Wrestling ain't the same without Ric Flair. I still like to watch it but I just can't get into it like I used to.
BARRY: JUST LIKE YOU FANS HAVE SAID BEFORE   "RIC FLAIR DON'T NEED WWE"    "WWE NEEDS RIC FLAIR" 
FLAIR-NWA-FOR-LIFE: Chris you're right i feel the same way, screw vince mcmahon, i think the nature boy is teaching mr. mcmahon a lesson about how you can't boss everyone around and tell them what they are going to do, you can if the person is under contract but mr. flair is not under contract so vince mcmahon is being taught a lesson by the nature boy right???
ALAN: Other night on TNA when the Main Event Mafia attacked Sting how great would it have been if the "Nature Boy" Ric Flair would have came to Sting's rescue?  Only in my dreams i guess
JAMES S: RIC FLAIR IS A KISS STEALIN WHEELIN DEALIN LIMOUSINE RIDIN JET FLYIN SON OF A GUN WHO HAS KISSED ALL THE GIRLS AND MADE "EM CRY.  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
JOHN: i don't watch much wrestling these days, usually when i am in the mood to watch wrestling i will get out my flair dvd's and then i watch real wrestling, tna is better then wwe but neither one is as good as the 80's when flair was world champion and walking that isle looking as only he could look. wooooooooo
THOMAS ROBERTS: YES THANK YOU WEBMASTER DAVE FOR MAKING ME UNDERSTAND THE BEHIND THE SCENES SITUATION WITH FLAIR AND MCMAHON, DAVID I WISH I HAD THE CONNECTIONS YOU HAVE, AND YES A LOT OF THE TIME THE INTERNET WRESTLING RUMORS ARE A BUNCH OF CRAP. THANK YOU DAVID. YOU ARE THE MAN AND YOUR WEBSITE RULES!
RYAN (MY UNCLE MET RIC FLAIR IN A BAR) Big news Flair fans, my uncle seen and met the Naitch himself several weeks ago at a bar in Charlotte, it is a high class expensive bar that my uncle goes to often, he said Flair came in with 4 beautiful women and he bought everybody in the bar a drink.

He said the entire bar started woooing but the people in the bar didn't bother Flair like he thought they would, they respected his privacy except for a few ladies coming over to Flair's table trying to talk to him all the time, my uncle waited until Flair was leaving before he asked him for a autograph, he said Flair was a complete gentlemen, my uncle told Flair to his face that he was the greatest wrestler of all time to which Flair said thank you that means a lot, then Flair left.

My uncle said it was a great surprise seeing Ric Flair in a bar and he said that the Naitch had a good time, at one point Flair was dancing with this lady and he started strutting and everyone got a kick out of that, my uncle has a story to tell for the rest of his life. David i think the Flair fans on the message board will enjoy reading about this so post this on the board if you don't mind. and when you post it "put my name and then put (My Uncle Met Ric Flair in a bar) out beside my name. Thanks!


DALE: In a recent interview with Ric Flair he said he was In better shape then he was In his retirement match against Shawn Michaels and that he could wrestle better then most of the current wwe roster so hell yeah I would like to see him step back In the ring especially In TNA against Sting. That would be so Cool.  Wooooooooooooo!
JASON: HAPPY 4TH OF JULY TO THE GREATEST PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER OF ALL TIME "NATURE BOY" RIC FLAIR AND SPEAKING OF FIREWORKS THERE WAS ALWAYS FIREWORKS WHEN THE "NAITCH" WALKED THAT ISLE IN THE SQUARED CIRCLE OR ON A PROMO. THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER RIC FLAIR.  HE WAS AND WILL FOREVER BE "THE MAN" WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
MAHALO: Aloha, Hey I wanted to let you know I really like your Flair page. Take care.
SAMMY: Hey here is the preview for this weeks TNA Impact, Thanks Webmaster Dave!

SCOTT JENSEN: Hello David and everybody on the message board . I wanted to wish you all a Happy Fourth of July . And happy July fourth to you Ric Flair WWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
ANTHONY: So who all on the message board thinks that Ric Flair made the right decision to refuse to be General Manager of raw because Vince McMahon acted like the prick he is and didn't want Flair to do all of his personal appearances and work for wwe at the same time? my opinion is that McMahon is a freakin a#s hole and he is jealous because he can't have the Nature Boy all to himself, the webmaster of our favourite Flair site David Matthews said it best when he said that in no way is Flair hurting McMahon or wwe by doing personal appearances so why is McMahon being a prick?
LAUREN (WE WANT RIC FLAIR IN COLORADO) Hey Ryan thank you for telling us about your uncle meeting Ric, I loved it, the stories of Ric going into a bar and buying drinks for everyone is legendary, I have been in love with him for 20 years and unfortunately I doubt I will ever meet him because I live in Colorado and Ric hadn't came here for a personal appearance that I know of. David will you please use your connections to get in touch with the Gillespie Agency for me and tell them that Ric is very popular in Colorado and if he came here for a autograph signing I guarantee everybody that there would be a huge turnout. Ric Flair is loved in Colorado and we desperately want him here. Colorado loves Ric Flair.  "Woooo"
KENNY ANDREWS: RFGOLDS.COM = THE BEST WRESTLING RELATED WEBSITE IN THE WORLD. THANK YOU DAVID MATTHEWS!  WOOOO  WOOOO  WOOOOO  WOOOOO  WOOOOOO  WOOOOOO  WOOOOOO  WOOOOO  WOOOOOO  WOOOOOO  WOOOOOO
D. CARTER: Woooo Ryan tell your uncle he is lucky as hell cause he got to see Ric Flair partying and being the kiss stealing wheeling dealing limousine riding jet flying son of a gun and i think with him coming into the bar with 4 hot babes would prove that he is still being the man. I have met him three times but it's different to see him out on the town instead of seeing him doing a personal appearance. DANCE ALL NIGHT, DANCE A LITTLE LONGER, STAY ALL NIGHT, STAY A LITTLE LONGER, that is Nature Boy Ric Flair:  Wooooo!
WALLY: the nature boy is still being the nature boy!!!  all night long!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
DAVIS: WOOOOOO YOU CHANGED THE HOME PAGE AGAIN DAVID  "IT LOOKS GREAT" THE PIC OF FLAIR IN THE BLUE ROBE IS AWESOME. GREAT JOB AS USUAL DAVID. WOOOOOOOOO
TYSON: Four gorgeous ladies on the arms of Ric Flair,  nobody can party like the Naitch huh?? wooo!
CURT: All the Women still want the "Nature Boy"   Woooooooo!!!!!!!!
FLAIRRULES: Anthony i know for a fact that Ric made the right decision to basicly tell McMahon to Shove It because he has proved that he can make more money doing personal appearances then he can working for McMahon anyway. Yes Ric made the right decision no doubt in my mind.
MICKY: He probably won't but if ric flair came back and wrestled again who should he step in the ring with and have a great match?
RANDY: I hope to be going to the Burlington Walmart tomorrow to see The Man.  I met him back in '04 and I was nervous as hell and tomorrow I will be nervous again, excited but nervous!
DEREK: Woooo Diamonds are Forever Woooo and so is the Nature Boy Woooooo Ric Flair Wooooooooooooo
TIMOTHY: I wish I would have been in the Bar when Ric Flair came in. It would be awesome to watch him party, drink and dance and have a killer time. Yeah Ryan your uncle will have a story to tell for the rest of his life for sure. I know the Champ is 60 years of age but I bet he can out drink and out party all them young punks that are in their prime. Go get 'em Ric!
JEREMY: I know Michael Jackson don't have anything to do with Ric Flair and I feel bad for his family during this time of his passing and i hate that he passed away but My God are you people not sick and tired of hearing all this Michael Jackson news in the last two weeks since he died?? It is driving me crazy that the stupid news media are acting like he was god. 

Come on people give me a freakin break the man is gone so let him rest in peace. If the news media are going to make a big deal over a celebrity it should be someone like Ric Flair not Michael Jackson, I don't think you would ever find Ric Flair having his nose operated on over 20 times and bleaching his skin white would you? That's because Ric Flair is a REAL man he ain't a sissy freak like Michael Jackson was.

Michael Jackson had so many plastic surgeries that he looked like a wax dummy not a human being. it is a shame that the news media are making a big deal over this overrated out of his prime shell of his former self that hadn't had a hit in 14 years or did a world tour in 13 years. LOL to the news media for being so ignorant, if they want to report some real news they should talk about the greatness of the best professional wrestler ever and one of the best athletes of all time Nature Boy Ric Flair because he is a real man unlike what Michael Jackson was.


ROBERT: Did you fans know that WWE pulled Ricky Steamboat and wouldn't let him attend the Dan Gable Wrestling Institute Hall of Fame ceremony this weekend, where he was to be inducted.   I think that shows us what kind of man Vince McMahon is don't it?
JIMMY: dance all night dance a little longer, "stay all night stay a little longer" wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
DENNIS: SINCE FLAIR IS STILL IN GREAT SHAPE I THINK HE COULD WRESTLE A LOT OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE AND STILL HAVE GREAT MATCHES WITH THEM. THE MAN'S ARMS ARE HUGE BECAUSE HE STILL WORKS OUT A LOT SO YEAH THE NAITCH COULD STILL GO.
KYLE: Woooooo the Nature Boy can still party All Night Long can't he?  You damn right he can Wooooooooooooooooo
DONNIE: Please Flair fans;; Michael Jackson don't deserve to have his name mentioned in the same sentence as Ric Flair. Give me a break. I agree with you Jeremy all the news media are ignorant because i don't give a rat's a#s about Michael Jackson, please keep the conversations on real talent like Ric Flair.
WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: Hello everybody. I wanted to inform everyone that we got two new pages on the site, one called "Flair Burlington Walmart" and the other page is something very important to me and it's called "Harry Houston Tribute" Harry was a friend of mine and he passed away two weeks ago and I decided to do a tribute to him on my site to honor him. He was a great guy and I will always remember when he would come to my house on the night of the wrestling ppv's back in the early and mid 90's to watch wrestling and mainly Ric Flair. I will never forget those special times in my life and it shows us again to not take anything in life for granted because we never know when we will take our last breath........Thanks........Webmaster, David Matthews
JAMIE: What members were the best Four Horsemen group of all time?? there were several different groups through the years but which one was the best ever? the original group was Ric Flair, Ole and Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard but was it the best group?  Let the debate begin Flair fans

SAMMY: Here is the preview for this thursday nights TNA Impact for the message board.

- It will be a huge main event on Thursday's broadcast as "The Icon" Sting will battle his nemesis Kurt Angle inside the confines of the unforgiving Six Sides of Steel cage match! Can Sting get his final revenge on Angle and The Main Event Mafia? No doubt, it will certainly be another epic when two of the sport's best collide inside the cage!

- Speaking of the Knockouts, NEW champion Tara will be in attendance

- X Champion Suicide will take on Chris Sabin of The Motor City Machineguns in a non-title match

All this and much more on Thursday's huge broadcast on SpikeTV starting at 9/8c, including more news on the July 19 "Victory Road" epic event! 


SCOTT JENSEN: To Jamie, I guess it would of been the best original 4 horsemen or the one when they had Barry Windham in the faction
ANONYMOUS: my favorite horsemen were flair, blanchard, arn and windham.
JOSEPH: I met the Naitch at walmart in burlington and WOW what a massive crowd it was. You couldn't even walk in the place because it was so packed. I think there were at least 600 people there not the reported 400. It was a packed house that's for sure. Flair is still as big now as he was right after he retired. Thanks webmaster Dave for putting up the page on the site about Flair being in burlington and i'm sorry about the loss of your friend, that was a good pic of him with Ric at Ric's gold's gym.
BARRY: Hey David very nice tribute to your buddy who passed away. Very well done and i'm sure that his family will very proud of you for doing that. That is very classy of you.
CALVIN: WOOOO RIC FLAIR HAD WALMART ROCKIN' AND ROLLIN' IN BURLINGTON LAST WEEK. DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER AND SO IS THE NATURE BOY.
TED: rfgolds.com is easily the best Ric Flair web-site ever. Wooooooooo
BOBBY MCCANTS: I seen clips of "Flair" on the news when he was in burlington, n.c. last wednesday. the local tv station interviewed him and they showed a little clip of the huge line of people who were there to see the champ. the lines were up and down all the isles of the walmart store it was so damn long. Woooo Flair's still got it don't he?
KEITH: The best Four Horsemen of all time in my opinion is Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard and Barry Windham from the 1988 era.  Ole Anderson was tough but he wouldn't the great wrestler that Windham was. At one time Windham was one of the best pure wrestlers in the world. Plus Flair and Windham had some great bouts and Flair didn't have to carry Windham like he did most guys.
GREG: SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR FRIEND PASSING AWAY DAVID BUT IT'S A FANTASTIC TRIBUTE TO HIM AND THE SONG PLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND ON THE TRIBUTE HARRY HOUSTON PAGE IS THE BEE GEES "HOW CAN YOU MEND A BROKEN HEART" WHICH IS A CLASSIC SONG BY A LEGENDARY BAND. AND THE FOUR HORSEMEN QUESTION IS A EASY ONE. THE MAN FROM SWEETWATER, TEXAS "BARRY WINDHAM" WHEN HE WAS WITH ARN, TULLY AND FLAIR WAS THE BEST HORSEMEN GROUP EVER HANDS DOWN.
MIKE B: The four horsemen are the greatest faction/group in the history of pro wrestling, the original group with ole may be the most famous but the best group of wrestlers would probably be when Windham was with them.
JAMES: the four horsemen dvd that came out a couple years ago was one of the best wrestling dvd's that i've ever seen. and did you notice that wwe didn't interview ole anderson for the dvd? that is because he is a grumpy bitter old man and he has said some ignorant things and that is why wwe refused to interview him for the dvd. i never was a big ole anderson fan even though he was a very tough guy. my style of a wrestler was barry windham so when barry was with them is my favourite horsemen group.
DOUG DUNCAN: I agree that Ric Flair is the all time greatest wrestler and showman in the Business.  Seen him in Seattle and have been watching Ric on TV for years.  Love his style. 
PETER: no offence to the original four horsemen group but you guys are right, the group was at it's strongest when Barry Windham was in the line-up. 
DANIEL KINGSLEY: I read that Ric Flair will be at the FansEdge Sports Spectacular signing autographs this Saturday July 18th in Rosemont, IL so for all you people out there in the illinois area here is your chance to meet the "FN" Man.
SAMMY (TNA PPV THIS SUNDAY IS GOING TO BE GREAT)

JC: Hey Keith I heard the Sting interview too and you forgot to mention that he said he would be honored to step back in the ring with Ric Flair one more time this time in a TNA ring. It was a great interview.
EDDIE: WOOOOO TO "THE STINGER" WOOOO I LOVE THE STING/FLAIR CLASSICS FROM THE LATE 80'S. THEM MATCHES WERE SOME OF THE BEST MATCHES EVER. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
BRENT: when i read your post keith it made me remember back to that match from the very first clash of the champions event in 1988 at the greensboro coliseum when flair and sting wrestled for 45 minutes. i watched that match live on wtbs and thinking of it puts a smile on my face. flair and sting was real wrestling not this pathetic garbage we are witnessing today. old school rules!
JONATHAN: You're right Iceman, Vinny Mac and wwe both need serious help because why in the hell is Seth Green on a wrestling program to begin with????? Does he have any business being there? I don't understand it, I agree tna is better then wwe and yes i also like a little beer from time to time. Woooooo!
CHRIS L: THE TNA PPV THIS SUNDAY LOOKS REALLY STRONG. MAIN EVENT MAFIA VS. BEER MONEY SHOULD BE GOOD, FOLEY VS. KURT ANGLE SHOULD BE GOOD AND I'M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING STING VS. SAMOA JOE.  I'M EXCITED ABOUT THE PPV.
MARK DALTON: I guess walmart with Ric Flair in burlington n.c. was a packed house huh?? you damn right Flair has still got it. He is still the man!!! wooooooo
NEIL R: I have never seen a Wrestling Message-Board were so many different people were so Intelligent and smart about Wrestling like rfgolds.com's Message-Board. Thanks to everybody who e-mails the webmaster their e-mails for the Message-Board because I sure do enjoy reading them. Most Message-Boards that I have read have a bunch of morons who post idiotic childish stuff but I am very pleased that David's Message-Board ain't one of them. David your Message-Board is the best one to read. Wooooooooo!!
KEITH MOORE: I thought that the TNA fans on the message board would like to know that Steve Borden (Sting) did a radio interview recently and they asked him about Ric Flair and he had a lot to say. He said he had more respect for Flair then anyone in the history of the business, he said his favorite matches he had was with Ric and his one favorite match was the one from Greensboro in 1988 at the first Clash of the Champions.

He said Flair was the best promo man ever and that nobody could fill the arenas up better then Flair (i would call that putting asses in the seats) he said what made Flair so special was that he lived, eat, and slept professional wrestling and that there has never been a harder worker in the ring then Flair, he said Flair was so believable on camera that when you watched his interviews you didn't know he was acting he was so talented.

He also said that for all the bragging Flair done on camera about being better then everybody else that off the camera he was the opposite because he was the most humble down to earth person he has ever met. He talked about how Flair would always offer to try to help a youngster just getting started in the business about learning the ropes. He said the thing that impressed him about Flair the most was his ability to make a person in the ring he was wrestling who didn't have any business being in the same ring with him look good enough to make you think that he could actually become NWA world champion.

I also remember him saying that he owes his whole career to Ric Flair because if it wouldn't for that one day in March of 1988 at the first Clash of the Champions when Ric put him on the map then he wouldn't have been conducting the interview he was doing because nobody would know who he was.

Hey Flair and TNA fans what do you got to say about these words from the Stinger?? Don't know about all of you but I got a lot of respect for him for saying these things about Flair.


ICEMAN: HEY MY GOOD BUDDY THE FREAKIN WEB-MASTER DAVID !!!!!!!!!!!WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! THAT WAS A GOOD TRIBUTE TO YOUR FRIEND HARRY HOUSTON. R.I.P. I WENT TO WWE.COM LAST NIGHT AND WHAT DID I SEE, NOTHING BUT SETH GREEN. VINNY MAC NEEDS SOME SERIOUS HELP!!!!!!!!!. WWE SUCKS. TNA KICKS ASS EVERY WEEK. THANK YOU SAMMY FOR THE TNA WRESTLING UPDATES. LONG LIVE COLD BEERS,JEFF JARRETT,AND THE "FN" MAN THE NAITCHAAAAABOY RIC "FN" FLAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND THAT'S THE BOTTOM LINE BECAUSE THE ICEMAN AND STONE COLD SAID SO!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!FN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PAUL WESTBROOK: Greeting Fanatics. Long time no hear. Im sure you all are like me and really miss seeing Ric on RAW, and no doubt you all feel as I do that WWE absolutely SUCKS! The one great RAW this year was when Ric faced Randy Orton in the parking lot brawl, and I guess that counts as Ric's last match AND his last televised appearance as he hasnt been seen since. Im still glad Ric decided not to kiss Vince's ass and forsake his creative freedom so that Vince could have his way again. Ric's a smart guy and once burnt twice shy I always say. Ah well. At least I have my 17 videotape set called Ric Flair; Legend, my Ric Flair Definitive Collection, Ric Flair Ultimate Collection, and Ric Flair and the Four Horsemen DVD sets, plus my Ric Flair; 2 Decades of Excellence taped show to keep me busy! WOOOOOOOO!!!
SAMMY (HUGE BOBBY LASHLEY NEWS) Even more big news for TNA wrestling. Bobby Lashley has finally signed a TNA contract, he never had a contract with them before even though he appeared a couple times with them. David please post this on the message board and if TNA wouldn't on fire before they sure as hell are now. Business is about to pick up!!

FORMER WRESTLING WORLD CHAMPION BOBBY LASHLEY JOINS TOTAL NONSTOP ACTION (TNA) WRESTLING. HISTORIC SIGNING MAKES LASHLEY THE FIRST EVER ACTIVE MMA (MIXED MARTIAL ARTS) FIGHTER TO CONCURRENTLY COMPETE IN PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING.

Bobby Lashley has signed a contract with Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling, making him the first-ever active pro wrestler in the western world to simultaneously compete as an active MMA fighter. He made the announcement on various ESPN interviews in New York.

"I want to do both because I can. TNA is giving me the opportunity to compete in both sports which I have a passion for," said Lashley. "I will bring MMA fans to wrestling and wrestling fans to MMA".

"This is a great opportunity for Bobby to do something that has never been done before. He is the perfect ambassador for both sports. We are excited to have him join TNA, he is a true star that brings so much to the table as a member of our roster," stated TNA President Dixie Carter.

Prior to signing with TNA and fighting in MMA, Lashley was a two time ECW World Champion while in the WWE. During this time, he headlined many world wide pay-per-views and quickly became one of the most exciting stars in professional wrestling. As a collegiate wrestler, Lashley made a name for himself winning three national amateur wrestling championships. Since his MMA debut last December, Lashley has dominated each of his four fights and is currently undefeated with a record of 4-0. His most recent victory over Bob Sapp on June 27, 2009 ended via submission in round one.

Lashley first appeared for TNA in Philadelphia at the "Lockdown" pay-per-view event in April 2009 to the surprise of many TNA fans, followed only by a brief appearance on TNA iMPACT! Since then, fans have been left wondering when and if he would return to TNA as a full time member of the roster. "Itís our intention to make history and weíre looking forward to having Bobby make an immediate impact in TNA," stated Carter.

Lashley appeared on New York 1050 (ESPN) shows "Brandon Tierney" and "Lundberg Doin' Work" to discuss the news of his TNA signing.


CALVIN: Verry True Neil R.  I have also read a ton of wrestling blogs and messageboards and most of them you read are immature posts from so called wrestling fans that really don't know what they are talking about but you're right that can't be said about David's messageboard. I have been reading his for about two years, before he had the messageboard it was called the guestbook were anybody could post and sometimes that got out of hand because you had immature fans who don't understand Ric Flair or wrestling and they would post stupid stuff but I am so glad that he changed it to the messageboard to were you e-mail him your posts and he puts them on the board. That way is so much better because almost every post is worth reading because most people that e-mail him (like myself) are true blue hardcore Ric Flair fans and they are very passionate about their feelings about not only Ric but also David's site. Great points made Neil R. and hey David your site Rules man!! Wooooooooo!
FLAIRRULES: YES THE NAITCH AND THE STINGER DID HAVE MANY CLASSIC BATTLES AND I DON'T CARE WHAT THEIR AGE IS I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THEM WRESTLE EACH OTHER AGAIN IN TNA. I GUARANTEE YOU THAT FLAIR AND STING AT THEIR AGE COULD PUT ON A MORE ENTERTAINING PERFORMANCE THEN THE WRESTLERS IN WWE CAN.
DALE BRANTON: thanks keith on the recap of the sting radio interview, i knew he thought all those great things about ric flair but it's great to know he made the comments again because he knows that without the match between him and flair at the clash of the champions in '88 then he would be a nobody. i think it's so cool that so many wrestling legends think so highly of the naitch. they all know who the man is!!
KEVIN: You know Flair fans i just started tuning in to TNA wrestling about 5 months ago and when i started watching it i was not a fan, but the more i watched it the more i liked it, then about a month ago i finally realized that what i was watching was a lot better then WWE, now very rarely do i ever tune in to WWE, i still watch it once in a while but every thursday night i am tuning in to TNA because their show kicks ass. Thanks to all the TNA fans on the message board because the reason i started tuning in to TNA was because of reading all their positive posts. I guess Sammy would be the one i should be thanking the most because everytime i read his posts it's about TNA. Of course the Webmaster would be the one who deserves the most thanks. TNA rules Wooooooooooooooooooooo Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
TIM GARNER: Yeah Paul i do miss seeing Ric on raw but like you said i am glad he didn't kiss Vince McMahon's ass like everybody else does. Ric don't play that game because he calls the shots now because he can make more money meeting his fans and making personal appearances then in the freaking circus of wwe anyway. I wonder how it makes Vince McMahon feel to know that Ric Flair is calling the shots?
MELISSA: OH MY GOD!! WHAT A GREAT PICTURE OF RIC ON THE HOME PAGE!  HE IS SO HANDSOME IN THAT PICTURE!! I KNOW I AM ONLY 35 YEARS OLD BUT I WOULD MARRY RIC FLAIR IN A HEARTBEAT BECAUSE HE IS ONE OF THE MOST HANDSOME MEN I HAVE EVER SEEN. AFTER WITNESSING THE NEW PICTURE OF RIC ON THE HOME PAGE THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT I WOULD DIE TO RIDE SPACE MOUNTAIN. WOOOOO I WANT TO MARRY RIC FLAIR BECAUSE SPACE MOUNTAIN IS ALIVE AND KICKING. WOOOOO!
ALAN: That is a killer picture of the Nature Boy on the home page webmaster Dave, and the background is cool too. "Keep up the great work"
DWAYNE: Hey I read this on a site earlier and I figured that the flair fans on the message board would like it.

Ric Flair will be a new spokesperson for what's believed to be the Education Lottery in North Carolina. I could be wrong and it's the South Carolina Education Lottery. Anyway, Flair will be doing promotional work, TV commercials and his "Woooo!" catchphrase will be part of the promotions. One set of lottery tickets will also have two photos of Flair, one from the 1980's as NWA Champion and another more recent photo. If it indeed is the North Carolina lottery, I'll be sure to pick up some game pieces when they come out and see what they're all about.


KENNETH: The interesting thing about the new Flair pic on the front page of the site is that it is a very casual pic of the Nature Boy which is unusual because most of the time he is styling and profiling but in that pic he is very casual. great picture!
GREG: I don't want to see "Flair" on raw if he don't get to do all of his personal appearances and outside activities like he wants. I really don't think "Flair" has time for wwe anyway does he?  The man is in constant demand and he loves meeting his fans and with his hectic schedule I doubt he has time to work for wwe unless he has a part time schedule with them.
ROBBIE: Melissa the picture of Ric on the home page is a great pic but you are dreaming honey if you think you're going to get to ride Space Mountain. Get in line with all the other women in the world because it is a long line. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
SAMMY: Hey David here are the results from the TNA "Victory Road" PPV last night for you to post on the message board, and TNA fans guess who else has left WWE for TNA?

COMPLETE RESULTS FROM VICTORY ROAD:

- Angelina Love of The Beautiful People regained the Knockouts Championship in controversial fashion on Sunday as she defeated Tara, despite the fact Tara's foot was on the ropes. After the bout, Tara took her frustrations out on the referee - then put her tarantula "Poison" on him! Later, the referee was caught in a compromising situation with Madison Rayne - leading many to wonder about his call in the match!

- "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan defeated Daniels, taking advantage of Daniels' leg injury to gain the advantage. When Daniels went for the Best Moonsault Ever, his leg gave out, allowing Morgan to hit the Carbon Footprint and his "Hellavator" finisher to get the win.

- Abyss defeated Dr. Stevie after hitting the Black Hole Slam and electrocuting him with the taser that Daffney had brought to the ring. Unfortunately for Daffney, Lauren came out to even the odds for Abyss.

- Team 3D retained the New Japan Tag Team Championship against The British Invasion after they hit their 3D finisher on Brutus Magnus. After the match, Kiyoshi and Sheik Abdul Bashir joined the Invasion in their attack on Team 3D, but Brother Ray and Devon turned them back and put Bashir through a table!

- In a match between the ladies of the Main Event Mafia, Jenna defeated Sharmell. During the bout, Awesome Kong hit the ring and knocked out both Sharmell and later Jenna! Kong then dragged Jenna's unconscious body on top of Sharmell, giving Jenna the pin and the win!

- Main Event Mafia member Kevin Nash defeated "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles to win the TNA Legends Championship, after Nash caught a quick win over Styles! Styles' offense had Nash on the ropes, but "Big Sexy" gained the upper hand when he used the referee to make Styles lose his balance during a springboard. Nash hit a desperation chokeslam and scored the win to get the gold!

- In another huge win for the Main Event Mafia, Booker T and Scott Steiner defeated Beer Money to become the new titleholders! Booker and Steiner worked like a machine, with Booker ultimately hitting the Axe Kick on Robert Roode to win the championship.

- "The Samoan Submission Machine" Samoa Joe defeated Sting in a bout that featured the TNA Wrestling debut of Taz! As Joe was trapped in Sting's deathlock finisher, Taz made his debut turned the momentum in Joe's favor. From the moment Taz came out, Joe took over on "The Icon" and got the win over the legend with the clutch! After the bout, Joe and Taz knocked fists and left the arena united - tune in Thursday on SpikeTV for the "iMPACT!" debut of Taz!

- In the main event, TNA World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle retained his gold against Mick Foley in the first-ever singles bout between the two superstars! Foley put up one hell of a battle against Angle, but in the end the Olympic Gold Medalist forced Foley to tap with the Ankle Lock. After the bout, the Main Event Mafia filled the ring to celebrate their total domination with Kurt Angle! 


TYLER: LOFL MELISSA LOFL. YOU WANT TO MARRY RIC FLAIR RIGHT?  GOOD LUCK!!!    LOFL  LOFL   LOFL   LOFL   LOFL    LOFL    LOFL    LOFL    LOFL  
BRADLEY: David i understand why your Flair site is the most popular Ric Flair site on the internet. You update it constantly and that's what people want to see. and i like everything about the site but my favourite part is the message-board. I like reading the opinions of all the Naitch fans, David i wish you and your site continued success and Thank You for what you do for the greatest wrestler of all time Ric Flair.  Wooooooooo!
JUSTIN FERRERA: David Matthews whatever you do man please don't ever take down your Ric Flair website including the Message-Board because I get very entertained by reading the messages. Melissa's post cracked me up i laughed so hard at her wishing she could become Mrs. Ric Flair. lol  i wonder what Ric Flair thinks if he reads these messages from these obsessive women who want to ride space mountain. i wish i knew what he thought about it.
MATT: My favourite wrestling matches of all time is Flair vs. Steamboat but my 2nd favourite matches of all time is Flair vs. Sting. It is great to know that Sting respects Ric so much that he would say all them wonderful things about him like he did in the radio interview. most people talk about the match from '88 when Ric put Sting on the map but i remember another match they had in '94 or '95 that was on the superstation wtbs on a saturday evening and it went 40 to 45 minutes too and i think it was just as good as their match from '88. it wouldn't a ppv or a clash of champions it was just a regular match on a saturday evening on world championship wrestling. i remember watching that match and i would like to see it again. Thanks to Sting for his respectful comments about Flair now i want him to talk Flair into coming to TNA and continuing their feud. Flair vs. Sting in a TNA ring would be fantastic.
KRISTY: Melissa is correct   "Ric Flair is handsome" and she ain't the only one who would ride space mountain because I would ride it all night long! Wooooooooooo!
DENNIS: HOW MANY FLAIR FANS WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE NAITCH BECOME THE MANAGER OF THE MAIN EVENT MAFIA?  I THINK IT WOULD BE SO COOL. WHAT DO YA FANS THINK???
CHRIS: I have to agree with Robbie, Space Mountain has a LONG line of women waiting so if Melissa or Kristy want to ride they might get upset because it will be a LONG wait.  LMAO!!!!
SAMMY: Hey Flair fans this time I have no TNA news in my post but recently I read a great article from a fan about what should be done to help WWE stop being so boring. The guy has some really good ideas that I think would help WWE. I thought you fans would find it interesting so David please post this on the message board. His name is Michael Joy. Thanks David

Michael Joy on WWE staleness

I'm 34 years old, and have been following wrestling since I was, without exaggeration, approximately four years old. So, while still somewhat young, I've been a fan for a long time, the kind of fan WWE tends to ignore. My current interest in the product is at an absolute all-time low, as I've never felt wrestling to be anywhere near as stale, redundant, processed, packaged, rehearsed, choreographed, and going-through-the-motions as it is right now. The same guys at the top year after year, too many titles, too many title changes, the scripting of promos, matches that come off as half-hearted choreographed dance routines, the ramp-to-ring staredown that ends EVERY match and in-ring angle, complete with someone walking backwards up the ramp, etc. It's really a struggle to care at all.

However, I don't just bitch without offering at least one idea that WWE hasn't quite tried yet. WWE has four shows a week, 14 pay-per-views a year, and a stale, depleted roster. They've publily expressed desires to regain "lapsed" fans (their term). So I have an idea that helps both of these issues. One (among many) of the reasons the WWF wasn't nearly as stale in the 1980s and early 1990's was that the guys on the main roster were kept apart quite a bit due to jobber matches. Guys would come out, look impressive squashing a jobber, and since the guys were only rarely wrestling each other on TV, they got over without having to do so at the expense of other people on the main roster.

Now, while I don't suggest fully bringing that back, particularly since ECW does usually feature at least one squash match a week (which is fine by me), I think WWE should bring back the concept of squash matches, but instead of no-name jobbers, bring back a lot of names from the past to fill that role. Similar to how they've brought back, in recent years, Goldust, Hacksaw Duggan, Road Warrior Animal, Tatanka, and Mr. Perfect, they should reach out to stars from the past to a larger extent. However, these would not be strictly squash matches.

Wrestlers could still get over by looking impressive, beating a past star, and WWE provides a competitive, entertaining TV match while keeping guys from the main roster apart significantly more than they do now. It's simple--feature a bunch of main-roster guys vs. past-star matches, keeping the main roster guy vs. main roster guy matches to a minimum, maybe one or two a show. This could accomplish the following:

1) Keeps guys on the main roster apart from each other in a match setting, making their PPV matches feel fresher and a little more special.

2) Since main roster guys can beat the past-stars, they can get over without having to bury/be buried by other main roster stars.

3) At least some fans from the past will tune back in, seeing that a lot more of the guys they watched in years past are back on the show. They could be wrestlers from the 80s, 90s, or earlier this decade--anyone who is a recognizable face and name.

4) The young, green wrestlers that are called up from developmental way too early can not only get over by beating a past established name, but can learn from these past stars far better than they can by wrestling each other. Since the scripting of promos seems to be a permanent stain on the product, perhaps these older stars can also help the young guys on their delivery of these promos.

5) Since they already have too many titles anyway, what older fans, like myself, wouldn't want to watch these past stars occasionally wrestling each other for WWE's own Legends Championship (though they would clearly change the name). As long as they'd have these older stars on the shows anyway, why not do something additional of interest with them? Who knows--maybe one of these guys gets back over and WWE has a new star.


If money is an issue, perhaps WWE, instead of signing these guys to contracts, can use them strictly on TV, and pay them on a per-night basis. Relatively speaking, this can't cost much to try out, especially with the refunding an entire gate on Raw a few weeks back, they can hardly cry poverty. Give it a shot, WWE. What could any of this hurt to try?

A Longtime, Yet Extremely Bored Fan,
Michael Joy


DEAN: Hey Webmaster Dave I think you should create a new page on your site and call it something like (Space Mountain for Women) or something along those lines and on the page you could put all the e-mails you get from female fans of the Nature Boy that way all the female population that are in love with Space Mountain could have their own tribute. I am sure the ladies would love it wouldn't they? just a suggestion
JOHN R: It would be cool to see the Naitch be the manager of the Main Event Mafia (MEM) but the problem would be Scott Steiner because Flair has no respect for that Steriod abusing non talented piece of scum. I like all the Main Event Mafia except for Steiner. MEM don't even need Steiner they would be better without him in the group.
JASON: I don't want to see Flair with the Main Event Mafia I want to see Flair wrestle Sting. Woooooooooooooo!!
ERIC: VERY INTERESTING SAMMY. I THINK "MICHAEL JOY" HAS SOME GOOD IDEAS THAT WOULD HELP WWE GET BETTER BUT VINCE MCMAHON WON'T DO ANYTHING MICHAEL IS SAYING IN THE ARTICLE BECAUSE HE HAS NO CLUE WHAT THE FANS WANT TO SEE.
LOGAN: WOW there is so many different discussions going on in the message board I don't know which one to talk about first, I will start with the Flair/MEM topic, no I wouldn't want Flair to be their manager I instead would like to see Flair come back and be the president or general manager of the whole TNA company, now that would increase ratings and put Flair in a storyline were he would excel at.

Can you imagine seeing Flair start off every thursday night with a microphone in a TNA ring telling all the wrestlers who they will be wrestling that night and doing a promo that only he can do. Imagine how much his presence would enhance the credibility of TNA.

Michael Joy has hit on something in his article about the problems in WWE. I agree with most of what he said, and the people who want to see David put up a page on his site dedicated to the ladies who want to ride space mountain I have no comment on that one, and hell yes the best pro wrestling matches of all time is Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat I am as sure about that as I am that there is a God.


TJ: tna wrestling is really getting stronger and stronger, taz and bobby lashley have both recently signed with the company, if they could just get Ric Flair everything would be perfect.
JOE EKLAND: Ric Flair is a Kiss Stealin Woooo Wheelin Dealin Woooo Limousine Ridin Woooo Jet Flyin Woooo Son of a Gun Wooo who has kissed all the beautiful girls Woooo and made them cry Woooo Woooo Wooooo Woooo Woooo Wooooo Wooooo Wooooo Wooooo Wooooo Wooooo Wooooo Wooooo Wooooo Wooooo Woooooo
GREGORY: Michael Joy made some valid points that wwe should listen too and if they did the quality of their show might would turn around but Eric is right Vince McMahon is clueless to what real wrestling fans want to see. The man really don't have a clue and that is why their show is getting worse and tna is getting better. If anybody out there thinks that wwe is better then tna then they need their head examined.
DWAYNE PRATT: MY OPINION ABOUT WHAT RIC FLAIR SHOULD DO IN HIS FUTURE IS EXACTLY WHAT HE IS DOING NOW AND WHAT HE HAS BEEN DOING THE LAST 16 MONTHS AND THAT IS "PERSONAL APPEARANCES"  "AUTOGRAPH SIGNINGS" AND "PHOTO SESSIONS" WITH HIS FANS ALL OVER THE WORLD. PLUS HE ALSO DOES PROMOTION FOR SMALLER INDEPENDENT WRESTLING COMPANIES TO TRY TO HELP THEM BY APPEARING AT THEIR SHOWS AND DOING PROMOS FOR THEM IN THE RING AND SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS.

I UNDERSTAND THAT A LOT OF RIC FLAIR FANS ARE UPSET THAT THEY DON'T GET TO SEE HIM ON WWE RAW BUT I AM NOT ONE OF THEM PEOPLE, I DON'T THINK RIC FLAIR IS AS HAPPY WHEN HE SIGNS A CONTRACT WITH WWE, I THINK HE IS THE HAPPIEST WHEN HE IS WORKING FOR WWE ON A PAY PER APPEARANCE DEAL AND HE HAS NO CONTRACT WITH THE COMPANY WHICH LEAVES HIM FREE TO DO ANYTHING HE WANTS TO DO AND CALL HIS OWN SHOTS.

I ALSO KNOW THAT WHEN RIC IS A FREE AGENT IS WHEN HE MAKES THE MOST MONEY, THINK ABOUT IT, WHEN RIC IS WORKING FOR WWE HE IS ONLY ALLOWED TO MAKE MONEY THROUGH WWE BUT WHEN HE IS A FREE AGENT HE IS MAKING MONEY THROUGH EVERYBODY INCLUDING VIDEO GAMES, DONRUSS CARD COMPANIES, NASCAR, WALMART, COCA-COLA, SCHEWELS FURNITURE, AUTOGRAPH SIGNINGS AND PHOTO SESSIONS AND HE CAN PICK AND CHOOSE WHEN HE WANTS TO WORK FOR WWE WHICH MEANS HE IS MAKING MONEY THROUGH THEM WITHOUT HAVING TO SIGN A CONTRACT WITH THEM. HOW SMART IS THAT?

SO THESE REASONS ARE WHY I THINK THAT RIC FLAIR IS DOING EXACTLY WHAT HE SHOULD BE DOING, YES I MISS HIM ON TV BUT IF I WAS IN HIS SHOES I WOULD BE DOING THE SAME THINGS HE IS DOING. HOW MANY OF YOU FANS ON THE MESSAGE BOARD AGREE WITH ME?  THANKS WEBMASTER DAVE FOR HAVING THE BEST WRESTLING WEBSITE ON THE INTERNET AND PLEASE POST THIS E-MAIL ON YOUR AWESOME MESSAGE BOARD. YOUR SITE RULES MAN! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!


BOBBY: diamonds are forever and so is the nature boy ric flair. wooooooo!
JEFF: Did anyone see the TNA ppv Victory Road last week? I watched it and I thought it was a very good ppv. I would really like to see Ric Flair be the general manager of TNA, I know he ain't going to wrestle again so he would be great in the general manager position. TNA don't call their person of power a general manager like WWE I think they call them the TNA Management Director which is currently Jim Cornette and no offence to Cornette because he's great but Ric Flair in Cornette's role would be killer as hell.
J. ATKINS: Wooooo I just finished watching my Ric Flair definitive collection dvd set for the 3rd time. It is my favourite Ric Flair dvd set of the three (including the Horsemen dvd set)  that has came out. The man may be retired but as long as I am breathing and I own a dvd player he will never be retired in my home because I will watch his matches for the rest of my life. Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

All this and much more on Thursday's huge 200th episode of TNA "iMPACT!" on SpikeTV starting at 9/8c!


CORY HUTCHENS: I happened to be lucky enough to witness a Ric Flair/Ricky Steamboat match live in person in 1984 and it was the best match I ever seen live and I've been to about 50 wrestling matches since I was 12 years old. Flair won the bout and this was not long before Steamboat made the mistake of going up north to the wwf. He should have stayed with Jim Crockett promotions (NWA) during this time. Flair/Steamboat produced the best matches ever no doubt about it.
RANDY: I know there is a lot of wrestling fans who visit David's site but I'm sorry because I can't watching wrestling anymore because it ain't nothing like it used to be and truthfully it ain't even wrestling anymore it is one big soap opera. If I was a fan of the current soap opera wrestling storylines that wrestling has become I would probably watch tna over wwe but i don't watch tna either. I will always be a Ric Flair fan but the Ric Flair I will always think of is the Ric Flair of the 70's and 80's and that is it.
BRENT: Dwayne I feel the same way, right now Ric has the best of both worlds so why go and mess that up by signing a wwe contract?, Cory dude you are lucky as hell to have witnessed a match between Steamboat and Flair live in the arena, I wish I could say that. great site and message-board david keep up the good work!
ERIC Z: I watch my Ric Flair dvd's at least once a month. My wife pics on me by saying I pay more attention to my Flair dvd's then I do her but I tell her that most of the time the Ric Flair dvd's are more entertaining then she is, lol she don't like that too good but the truth is the truth. wooooooooooooo!
WALTER: I had a guy at my job tell me last week that he thinks the Naitch made a mistake by leaving wwe and I told him he was crazy. Yesterday I told him to go to rfgolds.com's Message Board and read Dwayne Pratt's post and that he was wrong and that Dwayne was exactly right, he called me this morning and said that he had no idea that Ric had all these other things going on outside of wrestling and that he don't blame Ric for leaving full time, thanks Dwayne for your post because you convinced my friend that he was wrong.
DENNIS: wwe sucked big time last night i agree with all the posts on the message board that say they suck and that tna is better. tna ain't no nwa but they sure are better then wwe.
SCOTT NICHOLS: Today I read a review of this weeks wwe raw on a wrestling site and I agreed with it; see what you wrestling fans think of this blog, webmaster david if you don't mind please post the article below on the message board.

      I donít see what else can be concluded about the booking of the 7/27/09 WWE Raw other than that the blatant conflict of interest with Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H manifests itself in an overt conspiracy on the part of the writing team to keep anyone new from challenging the established top stars.

      I just donít buy incompetence as the explanation, because they know how to protect the people they want to protect. It just so happens that nobody with potential ever gets protection. The fans are the ultimate losers, as we have to endure the same 6 guys in main events week after week, month after month, year after year.


RODNEY T: Dwayne:: "Great job in explaining why Flair is in the Catbird seat"   I didn't think of everything like that but the way you explained it makes a lot of sense. Flair should come back to wwe just once in a while and work without a contract like he did last month when he kicked Randy Orton's ass in a street fight!
DOUG: I have a question for all the Flair fanatics, Why is Ric Flair more respected from his peers then any other wrestler who has ever lived? I hope you fanatics have some good answers.
TONY: LOL Eric Z. but I understand what you're saying. I don't have that problem because my wife loves "Flair" so she likes to watch my DVD's with me.
ERIC: NO QUESTION THAT I WANT TO SEE FLAIR AGAIN ON TV BUT I DON'T BLAME HIM FOR NOT SIGNING A CONTRACT WITH WWE. GREAT POINTS MADE DWAYNE!
JOHN: Doug I've been a Flair fan for over 25 years so I think I can answer your question about why Flair is the most respected wrestler who has ever lived? 

reason #1  is because Flair has never ever been a arrogant guy who tried to hurt another wrestler politically so he could move up the ladder, for example this reason is why Hulk Hogan is not respected by his peers but Flair is the opposite of Hogan. 

reason #2 is that Ric has always had time for his fans, I am not talking about the last year and a half since he has been retired I am talking about his entire career he always had time for his fans, my cousin once met Flair in the Charlotte airport and he was in a hurry to catch his flight but before he got on the plane he stopped and chatted with my cousin and almost missed his flight because he stopped to sign a autograph. How many other wrestlers would do this? 

reason #3 is that Flair's entire career he made a living out of making people that wouldn't that good look real good, in wrestling terms they call it selling, Flair is the absolute best ever at selling to make his opponent look good and on many occasions he made them look a lot better then they actually were. 

reason #4 is work ethic, Flair is in a class of his own when it comes to this area, nobody in the history of the biz busted their ass every match to give the fans the best possible match he could give them. 

reason #5 is that Flair wears his heart on his sleeve, Flair is a emotional guy and it comes from his heart and it is unusual to see a man be so emotional but it draws you closer to him to see him be that way because you know that he is so honest and down to earth.

Doug that is five reasons why Flair is the most respected wrestler ever but that is not all of the reasons there are more, I will post more in the coming days.


ERNIE: Scott Nichols that's a interesting article but it's correct, wwe is stuck on the same few guys in the main events and that is the way it is,  i like triple h as a wrestler but he's married to the bosses daughter so we know he will always be put in a main event slot even if other guys are more deserving which some of them are. wwe is all about politics that is why i watch tna more.
GREG WILSON: I DISAGREE WITH ALL YOU FANS ON THE MESSAGE-BOARD. I DON'T EVER WANT TO SEE RIC FLAIR BACK ON WWE TV BECAUSE VINCE MCMAHON IS FULL OF SH#T AND RIC FLAIR DESERVES BETTER. EVERYTIME RIC FLAIR COMES BACK TO WWE THEY SCREW HIM AND USE HIM TO PUT OTHER GUYS OVER AND I AM TIRED OF IT.
KENNY: I have to give John credit on his post when he gave his 5 reasons why the Nature Boy is the most respected wrestler of all time. I would agree with all his reasons but I will add one that John didn't mention and it is one word = Passion!!   It is all about a dedicated passion that Ric Flair has for pro wrestling for over 35 years. Flair's passion is unparalleled and unequaled and nobody will ever touch him in this category so i am glad i found a area that John didn't mention in his post.
AUSTIN: Woooo Diamonds are Forever and so is Rfgolds.com.  David Matthews you got the Best website I have ever seen, the most impressive part of your site is the Navigation. I have been going to websites for 13 years and I don't think I have ever seen a website with a Navigation so Large. For a person who has never been to your site David it would probably take them several days non-stop to go through your whole site there is so much to look at. As a true Hardcore Ric Flair fan I am very proud to say Thank You to the Webmaster David Matthews for creating a wonderful Ric Flair Tribute Site were all the fans can have a place to pay Tribute to the Greatest Professional Wrestler Of All Time "Nature Boy" Ric Flair. Thank You David. All the Ric Flair fans around the world owe you a debt of gratitude. Wooooooooooooooooooooo!
HALEY: Ric Flair is the sexiest man ever in wrestling. I love it when he does the Woooo and space mountain is my favourite theme park if you get what i'm saying 
WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS (THANKS TO EVERYBODY) Austin I felt like I should respond to your post......I get so many e-mails like Austin's telling me thanks for creating the Ric Flair website and telling me that my website brings them back to their childhood and when I hear these things it does make me proud and very pleased that I made the right decision in creating the site three and a half years ago.......but I want to make the point that if it was not for the Ric Flair fans who are reading this right now then the website wouldn't survive........

I want to take a minute to say Thanks to every person who takes time out of their schedule to visit my website and without all of you then my website wouldn't be the success it is........and of course the Ultimate Thanks should go to the man who makes it all possible "Nature Boy" Ric Flair because without him there would be no website.........Austin it means a lot when I read a post like the one you sent me..........

Thanks to all you fans who send me the e-mails and thanks for not getting mad at me when I don't respond as soon as you would like me too........ I have got so many things going on in my life outside of the website but I will always try to answer your questions and respond to your e-mails as soon as I can........... Thanks for all the support and I can guarantee each and everyone of you that my website is going to get better and better as time goes on.........So stay tuned because Ric Flair may be retired but rfgolds.com will never retire.............Woooooooo............Webmaster, David Matthews...........

CONGRATS ON A AWESOME AWESOME WEBSITE. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK. WOOOOOO--WOOOOO---WOOOOOO---WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO---WOOOOOOOOOOO---WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
CHUCK: yeah austin is right and david the webmaster knows how i feel about his website,  god knows i have told him enough times through e-mails how much i LOVE his site.
MORGAN: Who cares about WWE?  Vince McMahon has a bunch of bafoons on his writing team, I didn't like raw last monday I thought it was silly and childish. I am not a big fan of TNA either but I guess I will agree that they are a little better then WWE, my current favourite wrestling company is ROH (Ring Of Honor)  If you guys get the chance try to tune in to one of their shows because them guys wrestle and they have some damn good wrestlers on their roster. If you want to see their official site here is the link  www.rohwrestling.com 
WADE: All the Thanks goes to you David. I totally admire you for creating a FANTASTIC website. Every time I need my Flair fix I know were to go and that is your Ric Flair site. Thank You David and I am serious about that!!!
BRETT G: Haley i know you're not talking about the space mountain ride at disney world are you????  lol i know what you're talking about, just kidding with you, wouldn't it be nice to be the Nature Boy and have all the ladies wanting you? Haley you're not the only woman that loves the Naitch so like the post said last week you better get in line.   Wooooooo!
KEVIN: I love Ric Flair but does anybody know why he is so adamant about joining tna wrestling? I can't understand why he don't at least sign a short term contract with them? what are you Flair fanatics opinion on this?  I can't figure it out.
WALTER: i have heard about (ROH) but unfortunately you have to have HD tv to be able to watch their program, i got dish network and they told me the only way i can get Ring Of Honor was to buy the HD (High Definition) package which is too costly. but i have heard good things about their wrestlers.
RANDY: i know you have heard this a lot webmaster dave but i will repeat it. your flair site is not only the best flair site ever it is also the best wrestling website ever. no other site compares to yours. thank you dave! woooo!
JOEY BOWERS: David I just saw the new background on your home page. Awesome! I know I don't come to the website often & we don't see other much. But I still check out the new stuff on the site from time to time. It looks great & keeps getting better. WOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TOMMY LANIER: I have always been a wwe fan and I hate to say this but I have to agree with all the wwe bashers on the message board because I thought last weeks raw was absolutely terrible. What is a freakin basketball player doing on a freakin wrestling show??? Can someone please answer that for me??? I think Vinny Mac is worried because he couldn't talk Ric Flair into being GM of raw so he had to come up with a desperate storyline to try and fill Flair's void. I got news for him.  IT AIN'T WORKING!!!
TIMOTHY: that is a shame that not many people can get ring of honor but at least we got tna, and sammy the tna preview looks great for this thursday. i will be watching.
KYLE: Haley's post is funny as crap. LMAFO!!!  these women are never never gonna get the Nature Boy.
JASON: Kevin, TNA has been wanting Flair to sign a contract for over a year but you should know why Flair hadn't done it,  it's because he wants to be a free agent and be able to do what he wants and in the process of doing that make more dough then if he was in WWE or TNA. Does this answer your question Kevin?
MITCH: Ric Flair's one year no compete clause, in regards to working with TNA is over even though I don't see him appearing on their show.
DEREK: I got one word to say about www.rfgolds.com.  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
TYLER (HUGE "RIC FLAIR" NEWS: BIG BIG "FLAIR" NEWS!!   Ric Flair will become the new face of the North Carolina Lottery in September. He will even have his own scratch off ticket.  Is that big news or what?
JOE B: Webmaster David I found a article about the Naitch that all the readers of the message-board will probably be interested in. It is a great article that proves that Ric does things for a good cause and that he is really a great guy. 

Nature Boy to speak at United Fund Gala

The "Nature Boy" is coming to visit Marion. The former ringleader of the "Four Horsemen" will be the guest speaker at the United Fund of Marion County, Inc.Ďs annual fundraising Gala on Sept. 17.

World heavyweight wrestling champion Ric Flair will be the guest speaker at the United Fund of Marion County, Inc.Ďs annual fundraising Gala in September.

The world-reknown Flair, who went by the nickname "Nature Boy" and whose wrestling antics earned him titles and fame, will be in Marion County, South Carolina speaking to high school students and helping to kick-start the 2009-10 fundraising campaign for the Marion County helping agency.

Flair, a 16-time world champion, has entertained masses during his 36-year wrestling career before officially retiring this past year and is known for his trademark "Wooo!" He was inducted into the World Wrestling Entertainment Wrestling Hall of Fame on March 29, 2008.

The United Fund of Marion County raises money in Marion County to help Marion County agencies care for its citizens by providing services such as Meals on Wheels, transportation for medical needs and travelerís aid to various county fire departments, among other programs.

The Sept. 17 event begins at 7 p.m. in the Marion Baptist Church Fellowship Hall off Main Street and will also have a silent auction of items for attendees to bid on.
Individual tickets are $50.

Previous United Fund Gala speakers have been Marion Countyís Armstrong Williams and Sumterís Bobby Richardson.

A Charlotte resident, Flair, signed with the Columbia-based Gillespie Agency, which manages his appearances. During his illustrious career, Flair was a National Wrestling Association champion, also winning, during the 1970s, World Tag Team titles with Blackjack Mulligan and Greg Valentine as his partners.

In 1981, Flair defeated Dusty Rhodes to become the NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Flairís wrestling career survived wrestling federations and associations, national wrestling groupsí name changes and feuds, real and imaginery, into the 2000s and into "Wrestlemania."

There is limited seating at the Gala. Call United Fund Executive Secretary Judy Stanton at (843) 423-3411 for details or to reserve tickets. Anyone wishing to donate an item, time or a service for the auction can contact Stanton, whose office is in the Marion Opera House on Godbold Street.


DANNY: I heard that Flair was paid a SH#T LOAD of money to be the face of the N.C. Lottery, and I mean a SH#T LOAD. Congrats Naitch on another accomplishment.

CURT: Mitch I agree that Ric won't sign a contract with TNA but who knows just maybe he can work for them on a pay per appearance deal like he does with WWE from time to time. That would be great, and a big congratulations to the Nature Boy for becoming the face and the number #1 spokesperson for the North Carolina Lottery.
KENNETH: WOOOOO THE LOTTERY IN N.C. JUST GOT A LOT BETTER COURTESY OF THE NATURE BOY. I HAVE NEVER PLAYED THE LOTTERY BEFORE BUT I WILL NOW.  BUSINESS IN THE N.C. LOTTERY JUST PICKED UP   WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
FLAIRRULES: I live in the heart of Flair country (Charlotte Woooo N.C.) and this story about Ric Flair getting his own scratch off lottery ticket is big big news here. It is everywhere and everybody is talking about it. You can add this to Flair's Long list of accomplishments since he retired from the ring.
MATTHEW: does anybody know exactly what day in september i will be able to buy a ric flair lottery ticket?
ASHTON: The state of North Carolina has made a great decision to have the greatest performer in wrestling history to have his very own lottery ticket in his honor next month. Thank You North Carolina!  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
RANDY (I WANT A RIC FLAIR LOTTERY TICKET) Wooooooooooooo  a Ric Flair Lottery Ticket is cool as hell and I would love to have one  Wooooooooooooooooo

SARAH: I love the Naitch so when I buy the Ric Flair "Woooo" Scratch off lottery card I'm going to shout out a big loud "Woooo" whether I win or lose.

Whether you like it, or you don't like it, learn to love it, because it's the best thing going today!


JOEY BOWERS: David I just saw the photos & articles from NWA Fanfest 2009. WOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You're correct Ole does look uninterested & out of place. I don't think Ole ever wanted to be a 4 Horseman. Why am I saying this? Well check out the Ole Anderson 2 disc dvd from Highspots. Ole states very clearly that the 4 Horsemen idea came from Dusty Rhodes. Ole also says he was reluctant to do it. I know we don't have many Ole Anderson fans out there. But as they say the proof's in the pudding(or in this case the dvd!) Anyway David the article about the history between the NWA Harley Race & Ric Flair was great! How about those pics of Baby Doll? Still lookin' hot! WOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PAUL WESTBROOK: Greetings Flair Fanatics. Paul Westbrook here. Dave the pics were great, and to answer your question, I too saw that Ole looked uninterested, but you know something? Who cares about Ole Anderson because he was and still is a bitter jackass anyways. Was wonderful seeing Baby Doll pose with the group as well as the best incarnation of the Horsemen Tully, Arn, Ric and Barry Windham, and great to see JJ Dillion looks pretty much the exact same way as he's always looked. Flair and Race looked like they were both having a terrific time, and I agree wholly with Ric saying that Harley Race was the toughest man he's ever wrestled. All you have to do is view at least 1 match between the two to know that. Again Dave, great pics, and equally great updates. Keep up the work on this site because like Flair it rocks. WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
JAMES: The only thing I can say when I look at your site david is "OH MY GOD" and a very loud "WOW". What a FANTASTIC update page with the pictures of the original Four Horsemen. Ole Anderson was a very tough wrestler but I think he might have Alzheimer's Disease with all his stupid comments and his jealousy of Ric Flair. Ole is obviously very bitter towards todays wrestling and Vince McMahon. That is why every time a new WWE dvd is released you never see Ole Anderson on it. Remember the Four Horsemen DVD that came out a couple years ago?  The reason why Ole was not interviewed on the DVD was because of the ignorant comments he said about McMahon and WWE in his book he wrote. I respect Ole as a wrestler but I have no respect for him as a human being. He is nothing more then a bitter old man.
DEREK: Woooo the new Flair Fanfest '09 pics are the freakin bomb!!! Woooooo
ALAN: Diamonds are Forever and so is the "Fanfest Flair Pictures"  Woooo the NWA (National Wrestling Alliance) will always Rule and it is the greatest wrestling company of all time. Wooooo the NWA Rules forever!!! Woooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!
BRADLEY: OUTSTANDING PICTURES OF THE FOUR HORSEMEN FROM CHARLOTTE WEBMASTER DAVE. AWESOME JOB MAN!!! WOOOO!
TJ: great looking home page and the reunion of the four horsemen pics looked great too. the four horsemen are the best faction/group ever and i enjoyed seeing barry windham with flair, tully, arn and jj.
CALVIN: Hey Webmaster Dave I read a review on-line by Mike Johnson on the NWA Legends Fanfest over the weekend and it included another great Flair moment. Please post this on your spectacular message board.

I returned this morning from Charlotte, NC where I was at Greg Price's annual NWA Legends Fanfest.  I can say, bar none, it was easily the best wrestling-related event I've attended all year, from things like the Four Horsemen reunion to seeing names like Mark Lewin pop out of the woodwork to getting the chance to talk to Danny Hodge. Ric Flair broke down discussing his friendship with Blackjack Mulligan in one of the most emotional moments around the business that I've seen since Flair's 2008 retirement. The entire weekend was one relaxed gathering where fans who love and miss what professional wrestling used to be got to travel back in time and relish what they missed for a few days.


DANNY (THE FOUR HORSEMEN RIDE AGAIN)  WOOOOOO DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER AND SO IS THE REUNION OF THE LEGENDARY FOUR HORSEMEN.  TO HELL WITH DX, TO HELL WITH THE HART FOUNDATION, TO HELL WITH THE NATION OF DOMINATION, TO HELL WITH THE NWO, THE "FN" GREATEST GROUP OF ALL TIME IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE FOUR HORSEMEN. END OF DISCUSSION! WOOOOOOO!
KENNETH: DAVID HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU HOW FREAKIN AWESOME YOUR WEBSITE IS?  I THINK I HAVE TOLD YOU 100 TIMES ALREADY. THERE IS NO OTHER WEBSITE THAT CAN TOUCH YOURS. YOUR SITE IS HEAD AND SHOULDERS ABOVE THE REST. I LOVE THE 4 HORSEMEN PICS. GREAT JOB!!
TIM: The Four Horsemen in Charlotte, N.C.  It don't get any better then that!!!!!!!!!
GREG: Ole Anderson needs to understand that all the young fans that are in their 20's and early 30's don't remember him from the 70's we remember him from being with the Four Horsemen so he needs to respect the fans that only remember him from being a member of the Horsemen, and with that respect he should have at least smiled in the picture with the other members of the group, and why in the hell was he wearing a shirt with his picture on it? I think that is being conceited if you ask me, to be a member of the Four Horsemen you should conduct yourself with Class. To conduct yourself with Class means you should wear nice clothes like Ric Flair not a shirt with a picture of yourself on it for god's sake.
CALVIN: I got another blog from the NWA Legends Fanfest that you should put on the message board. It features a story about Flair and Harley Race at the Hall Of Heroes banquet dinner and as usual Flair is trying to buy somebody a drink this time it happens to be Harley. Great Story!!

It was funny watching Harley Race and Ric Flair interact. Flair was at the table and motioned that he wanted to buy Harley a drink- Harley motioned no; so Flair got his son Reid up to go get Harley a drink, but Harley saw Reid get up and waved him off. It looked like Ric then gave Reid a hard time for that- funny stuff. It was cool to listen to Flair's speech. It was a definite highlight to be front row center to hear Flair at the Q and A and to speak at the dinner.


RYAN: GREAT POINT GREG AND YOU ARE RIGHT DUDE! OLE ANDERSON IS A LEGEND IN THE BUSINESS BUT HE SHOULD RESPECT HIS PLACEMENT WITH THE FOUR HORSEMEN MORE THEN HE DOES. HE NEEDS TO BE THANKING GOD HE WAS A HORSEMEN BECAUSE IF HE WOULDN'T THERE WOULDN'T NOBODY UNDER THE AGE OF 40 KNOW WHO IN THE HELL HE IS.
TIM PAXON: I will never forget as a young boy watching NWA wrestling on Saturday mornings, then I had to come in the house from playing outside by 6:00 that evening to watch World Wide Wrestling with David Crockett and Tony Schiavone. Those are memories I will never forget. It saddens me to watch WWE raw these days because to me it ain't wrestling, it ain't what wrestling should be, I miss those days that I grew up on but I thank you David for sharing your website with us so I can relive those days that I am so proud of. Thank You David!
ROB: Flair is always buying people drinks, and I am 100% sure that it wouldn't a Dr. Pepper if you get my drift. I bet Ric Flair is the coolest person in the world to go have a beer with and just shoot the sh#t, and can you imagine going to a party with him? DAMN! that would be "fn" awesome. Nobody can party like the Nature Boy. Woooo!
JOHN: Ole Anderson can run his mouth about Ric Flair when Ric is nowhere around but why didn't he run his big mouth to Ric's face in Charlotte last weekend??? I know why, it is because he would have got his grumpy ass kicked!  I promise you that!! Wooooo
TRISHA: I want to Marry Ric Flair. He is my favourite wrestler ever. David I go to your website all the time, I can't get enough Flair news, I love Ric Flair.   Wooooooooooo---
K. JENNINGS: Tim reading your post brings back memories for myself too. I was only 8 years old when Flair defeated Harley Race at the first Starrcade but I remember it very well, Starrcade '83 was the first big thing I remember and it forever changed my life and made me a Flair fan forever.
SAMMY: Hey Flair fans sorry I missed posting this weeks TNA preview but here is the lineup for this weekends TNA Hard Justice PPV.

MICHAEL: Yeah John I believe Ole Anderson knows better to say something negative to Ric's face or it would be real bad news for Ole. If Ole is really not proud of his time as a Four Horsemen then he should be ashamed of himself. I always liked Arn better then Ole anyway. Arn was better on the microphone and a better wrestler in the ring. Arn Anderson is one of the most underrated wrestlers in history. Ric Flair himself said that and I agree with him. Ole don't compare to Arn.
DALE MOYER: I wished I lived down south were I could go to all these wrestling conventions and meet my idol Ric Flair face to face. That is my ultimate dream. I don't think there has ever been a athlete in the history of professional sports as special as "Nature Boy" Ric Flair. The man worked so hard and busted his ass match after match to entertain his fans and for that I respect him so much.

The area that seperates Ric from everyone else is his passionate work ethic. Ric didn't care about the money, if there has ever been a wrestler that would have worked for free it would have been Ric Flair and I truly believe that. Ric's main goal was entertaining his fans, he didn't take advantage of people like Hulk Hogan did. Hogan was all about the money, fame and the politics but with Ric it was real and genuine.

That is why "Flair" is the most respected and idolized pro wrestler who has ever laced up a pair of boots. Why do you think Ric gets so emotional when he is talking about his peers and his fans? It's because it is so damn real to him and he has had a love affair with the wrestling business for over three decades. "Nature Boy" Ric Flair breaths, eats, and sleeps professional wrestling and that is why he is the most influential professional wrestler who has ever lived and that my friends is a fact that can't be denied.

I hope that one day Ric will do a personal appearance here in Salt Lake City, Utah because he is loved and respected here just as he is in "Flair Country". Ric Flair will always be "The Man" and that is the bottom line because the "Woooo" says so!!!!!!!!!!!


RICHARD: Hey Flair fanatics I think we need to Quit wasting message board space by talking about Grumpy old grandpa Ole Anderson. I don't give a crap about him. If he has a problem with Ric Flair then he should have addressed it with him at Fanfest in Charlotte but since he didn't I guess that means he either don't have a problem with him or he was too scared to say anything to Ric. It has to be one of the two right??
STEPHEN: Nothing against Ric Flair for doing personal appearances but for Christ Sake the man needs to be inside a wrestling ring kicking a#s cause God knows he still can. I know he is making tons and tons of cash by doing personal appearances but I want him to style and profile all night long in a wrestling ring. Come back to wrestling Ric because it sucks without you Naitch.    Wooo! Wooo! Wooo! Wooo!
AMY:  I LOVE WWW.RFGOLDS.COM AND "NATURE BOY" RIC FLAIR. WOOOOOOOOO!!
SEAN: Does anyone know if Ric Flair will be making a autograph signing appearance in the Kansas area anytime soon?
K. ROBBINS: i was going to Charlotte for the big nwa fanfest event but i lost my job so i couldn't go, i was so upset because i wanted to see the 4 Horsemen except for Ole Anderson that is. if i would have went i was going to refuse to meet Ole and refuse to shake his hand plus i was going to tell him to kiss my a#s. Ole Anderson sucks!
SCOTT HARTMAN: I loved Barry Windham as a four horsemen but do you fans remember when Barry challenged "Flair" for the World Title in '86 and '87?  They had some awesome matches and Barry was a great talent that could stand toe to toe with the Nature Boy. My favourite match between them is on Ric's first dvd and it took place in Jan. '87 and it went 45 minutes and it is a absolute classic.
TERRY: I CAN'T WAIT TO SEPTEMBER 22ND TO GET MY VERY OWN WOOOO SCRATCH OFF TICKET. THAT IS SO FREAKIN KILLER!! WOOOOOOO!
JAMES: I really like the new home page with a pic of the Flair Wooo Lottery Scratch-Off Ticket banner. I usually play the Scratch-Offs and with Ric Flair having his own ticket I sure as hell will play now. Wooooooo
GREGORY: The posts in the message-board keep getting better and better. Dale Moyer's post at the top of the board is totally fantastic. There shouldn't be anybody who don't appreciate his post. Dale you are speaking the truth in your post man. Hopefully Ric will make the journey to Utah were you can meet him. Your post is great.
CALVIN: Hey Dale Moyer your post is killer. I feel the same way you do, not sure why Ric hadn't been in the Utah area but maybe he will someday. Ric is in high demand everywhere. He may be more popular in Flair Country but Ric Flair is loved all over the world not just in the south.
TJ: WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT A YEAR AND A HALF AFTER RIC FLAIR RETIRED THAT HE WOULD STILL BE THE BIGGEST STAR IN PRO WRESTLING???  WHO ELSE IS GETTING THE OFFERS HE'S GETTING??  AND WHO ELSE HAS A CONTRACT SIGNED WITH SO MANY DIFFERENT COMPANIES LIKE HE DOES???  FLAIR IS BIGGER NOW THEN HE EVER WAS IN WWE.
SAMMY: I have some great news for all the TNA fans on the message board. David please post this very important article on the board. Thanks!

 

Spike TV and TNA Wrestling Extend Partnership Through 2012

Deal Includes New Weekly Installments Of 'TNA: iMPACT!' And The Addition Of New Original Series Of Specials

TNA Entertainment, LLC is a privately held company headquartered in Nashville, Tenn.


HEATH: VERY TRUE T.J. BUT I KNEW FLAIR WOULDN'T RETIRE AND JUST SIT IN HIS ROCKING CHAIR TO NEVER BE SEEN AGAIN. IT DIDN'T SURPRISE ME THAT HE HAS BEEN SO SUCCESSFUL SINCE HE LEFT WRESTLING. 
 
T.J. YOU DIDN'T MENTION THAT FLAIR HAS ALSO MADE MORE DOUGH SINCE HE RETIRED TOO.  I WILL BE BUYING A WOOO SCRATCH OFF CARD NEXT MONTH. I AM EXCITED ABOUT THAT. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

KYLE: Dale Moyer you're right man! "There is only one "Nature Boy" Ric Flair" and Hoax Slogan will always be jealous of the "Naitch" because Hoax Slogan sucks and he can go to Hell. I have always hated that bastard. Very few people in wrestling have any respect for that "fn" piece of trash. Flair is the Man and By God he always will be.

CURTIS: TJ i would have thought it because i've watched Ric since 1979 and i've known for 30 years what a talent he was and still is so i'm not surprised that he is getting offers left and right.

DONALD: I loved the first post when he said "and that's the bottom line because the Woooo says so!!    it's true but i had to chuckle. Wooooooo!

KEVIN: Woooo TNA is here to stay that is great news that they signed a 3 year contract with spike tv. I love watching them every week and the only thing they need to do now is hire the Naitch. Go TNA!! Woooo

JOHN C: So Kyle tell us how you really feel. I agree that Hogan was never a wrestler because he didn't know how to wrestle but what made me lose all respect for him was when his son was in the car crash and because of his son's drinking the guy in the car with him was left brain dead for life and then when Hogan's son was in jail they played a audio recording of Hulk Hogan talking junk and making fun of the boy who was left brain dead. I couldn't believe my ears at the awful things Hogan was saying about the poor guy who will be comatose the rest of his life. When I heard Hulk saying them things I lost all respect for him. What kind of low human being could say such awful things about a person who will never leave a hospital bed?  That my friends is UNFORGIVABLE!!!!!!!

SAMMY: Hey David and all the TNA fans on the message board, for the people who didn't see the TNA ppv Hard Justice last weekend here are the results.

RESULTS FROM SUNDAY'S "HARD JUSTICE" PAY-PER-VIEW EVENT: NEW CHAMPIONS CROWNED, KURT ANGLE RETAINS THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP AND MORE!

COMPLETE PAY-PER-VIEW RESULTS:
- In the most insane and daredevil Steel Asylum match thus far in TNA history, Daniels came out the winner to earn a shot at the X Division Championship. The match was highlighted by the debut of "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero (who kept Suicide from winning the bout), as well as Daniels hanging upside down from the top of the cage! After Dinero took out Suicide, Daniels recovered and escaped to win it.

- Jethro Holliday took on Abyss in an attempt to claim Dr. Stevie's 50,000 bounty on Abyss. Dr. Stevie attempted to interfere on Holliday's behalf, but it only backfired. In the end, Dr. Stevie handed brass knuckles to Holliday, but Abyss instead hit his Black Hole Slam finisher to get the win. After the match, Dr. Stevie was irate with Holliday and got in his face. In turn, Holliday knocked out Dr. Stevie!

- Hernandez gained a quick win over Big Rob of The British Invasion, using a shoulder block at the start of the match to surprise the UK muscleman! When Hernandez came out, he got on the microphone and told all of the British Invasion that they could hand him the briefcase, or he would take it by force. The Invasion attacked, but Hernandez fought them off. After getting the pin on Big Rob, Hernandez grabbed his World Title shot briefcase and exited the ring, while Brutus Magnus and Doug Williams held back an irate Big Rob!

- With World Elite leader Eric Young on commentary, The British Invasion defeated Beer Money, Inc. to retain the New Japan IWGP Tag Team Title. During the bout, Eric Young tossed one of the IWGP titles into the ring, which caught the attention of Robert Roode. Roode went after Young, but Eric spit on him. As the referee was removing the title from the ring, the Invasion hit Roode with a low blow and rolled him up for the pin!

- ODB and Cody Deaner got the win over Angelina Love and Velvet Sky to become the new Knockout Women's Champion! Madison Rayne accidentally cost Angelina the match (and the gold) when she went to hairspray Deaner but blinded her Beautiful People leader instead. Deaner scored the pin and ODB was awarded the title, but Deaner took it and left the ring while ODB gave chase! After the bout, The Beautiful People argued in the ring, with Love leaving in a fit of rage!

- Samoa Joe (with Taz) defeated Homicide to become the NEW TNA X Division Champion! Homicide hit Joe with everything he had, but in the end Joe forced Homicide to tap out to the rear naked chokehold! Samoa Joe has certainly re-focused on his submission skills, and now he once again dominates the TNA X Division as the reigning champion!

- In an all-out brawl for the TNA World Tag Team Title, Scott Steiner and Booker T retained the gold against Team 3D. The conclusion of the match was controversial, with two TNA referees (Earl Hebner and Slick Johnson) both registering pins for each team. After Hebner and Johnson reviewed the videotape, it was announced that Booker T and Scott Steiner were still the tag team champions, which the crowd didn't agree with!

- In a bloody and chaotic battle, Kevin Nash defeated Mick Foley to win the TNA Legends Championship! After a brawl between Nash and Foley, Mick brought a barbed wire bat into play, which brought out Traci Brooks to stop him. As Foley dealt with Brooks, Nash took his opportunity to deliver a big boot to Foley to get the win. After the bout, Abyss came out to save Foley from further damage by the new champ.

- In the main event for the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Kurt Angle successfully retained the gold by beating Sting and Matt Morgan. Late in the bout, Sting had it won, but there was no referee. Morgan took his opportunity to capitalize - hitting his "Carbon Footprint" on Sting. However, Kurt Angle smashed Morgan with a steel chair, and covered him to get the pin and the win. Once again, Kurt Angle outsmarted Sting and Morgan to remain World Champion.

B. PHILLIPS: NO OFFENCE TO ANYBODY ON THE MESSAGE BOARD BECAUSE I LOVE MOST OF THE POSTS BUT I REALLY DON'T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT HULK HOGAN EVEN IF I AGREE WITH THE FANS VIEWS ABOUT HIM. THE ONLY THING I CAN SAY ABOUT HULK HOGAN IS THAT I WISH HE WOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE CAR ACCIDENT AND I WISH HE WAS THE ONE WITH BRAIN DAMAGE.
BOBBY: Hard Justice was a great ppv but i didn't want Mick Foley to lose the legends title to Kevin Nash. i watch TNA every week and once in a while me and my cousin will go in half and order a ppv. I think that TNA has got better in the last year and WWE has got worse but that is just my opinion. i enjoy Sammy's TNA posts.
ALEX (HOAX SLOGAN SUCKS) Hey Kyle, John C, and B. Phillips all three of you are speaking the truth about that Prick Hoax Slogan, He is a piece of sh#t that NOBODY respects in real life because all he knows how to do is screw people over to get himself a advantage. He is the total opposite of a class act like Ric Flair.  Flair cares about the sport of wrestling and his fans but all Slogan cares about is himself. Screw Hogan!!!!!
NEIL HARRISON: Yes Hogan is a piece of trash but i'm sure nobody that reads the message board gives a crap about Hulk Hogan so let's keep the subject matter on the GREATEST PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER OF ALL TIME NATURE BOY RIC FLAIR. ain't that a good idea???
JT: Steve I clicked on the link and seen the Flair Donruss trading card and it is awesome and a true collectors item. Thanks for the link.
BRENT: Hoax Slogan?? LOFL that is one of the funniest things i have ever heard  LOFL
RICKY: WOOO I CAN'T WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON THE NEW "WOOOO" SCRATCH OFF RIC FLAIR LOTTERY TICKETS ON SEPT. 22ND, IT IS LESS THEN A MONTH AWAY. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
SAMMY: Here is the preview for this Thursday's TNA Impact which features the president of TNA Dixie Carter. Thanks David.

JOEY BOWERS: I've been reading the comments on the message board about Ole & Ric and I couldn't agree more. Even though Ric began his career in 1974 it wasn't until he recovered from the plane crash in 1976 that he really rose to the top. Prior to this Ric had been teaming with his ''cousins'' Ole & Gene Anderson in 6 man tag matches. After the crash is when Ric began teaming with Greg Valentine & feuded with the Andersons. How do I know so much about this? Because I grew up watching wrestling when all this action was happening. Anyway there's no good reason for the crap Ole is saying about Ric these days. They were great for each others' careers years ago so why doesn't Ole just let it be? Ole you suck! WOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SCOTT JENSEN: There is a new dvd coming out about WCW. how many people are going to buy the Rise and Fall of WCW? and also did anybody hear Ric Flair on the radio On the John Boy and Billy (the Big Show) from 8-17-09, and also have any of you fans read any good books of Ric Flair lately? I am getting a book about Ric Flair on the 31st of this month.
BOBBY: TRYING TO WATCH WRESTLING WITHOUT RIC FLAIR IS VERY PAINFUL AND HARD TO DO. I HOPE RIC FLAIR COMES BACK SOON BECAUSE WWE FREAKIN SUCKS WITHOUT THE NAITCH. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Solie responsible for wrestling announcing greatness

Since the late 1800s, professional wrestling has developed many high-profile stars, but one of the most well-known personalities ever wasn't even a wrestler.

He was a commentator, an announcer, a Florida regular named Gordon Solie.

Bob Allyn, with assistance from co-authors Pamela S. Allyn (Gordon Solie's daughter) and Scott Teal, aims to enrich wrestling fans with the life and times of this legendary broadcaster, who died in 2000 at 71.

Published by Crowbar Press, The Solie Chronicles takes fans on a wild ride behind-the-scenes in the world of professional wrestling.

All sorts of personalities make their way into Allyn's book about Solie, the voice of Championship Wrestling from Florida. Everyone from Ric Flair to Dusty Rhodes and more graces the pages of this Solie book.

Famous dead-pan style interviews and colorful play-by-play broadcasts of wrestling led to Solie's induction into the WCW Hall of Fame (Class of 1995), the NWA Hall of Fame (Class of 2006) and the WWE Hall of Fame (Class of 2008).

Bob Allyn said in a release: ``The background material for this biography was found in Gordon's personal files and taken from interviews with the people who knew him the best. It's written as a testament to a man who made his mark in many endeavors.''

Solie calling a world championship match was like Al Michaels or Bob Costas calling a Super Bowl or a World Series -- just a perfect fit.

The majority of the book's content is drawn from interviews with 65 people from all walks of life who knew Gordon best: family and friends; stock car drivers; professional wrestlers; referees and promoters; journalists; commentators; broadcasters; and photographers.

Born Jonard Frank Labiak on Jan. 26, 1929, Solie began working as a page and errand boy for a Louisiana radio station when he served in the U.S. Air Force. Known to his fellow servicemen as `Gordy,' he later legally changed his name to Gordon Solie.

In 1950, he worked for WEBK radio in Ybor City, Fla. By starting his own sports radio interview program, Solie made key contacts in professional wrestling and stock car racing.

Subsequently, he set a course and made a major impact on the development of professional wrestling, along with being closely associated with national auto thrill show tours, stock car racing on Florida's suncoast and ultimately, becoming the host for the highest-rated show on the largest cable network in America.

ē Excerpt from The Solie Chronicles:

``Gordon left WCW with a record of good performance, but he did leave an off-the-job situation hanging over his head. While still with WCW, the company changed Gordon's flights from Delta to Kiwi. He wasn't happy about the change. Not only did he and Smoky take vacation trips on Gordon's Delta frequent flyer miles, but a lot of the attendants knew him. He was a regular, and they treated him like one. They would make allowances if he occasionally drank too much, and perhaps even chastise him for lighting a cigarette on a plane.''

NWA legend Harley Race said. ``Gordon used to sneak a wet towel into the bathrooms on the airplanes. He used to put the damp towel over the smoke detector and sit in the airplane restroom and smoke cigarettes. Gordon was the reason that the airlines added signs about not tampering with their smoke detectors.''

``When Gordon learned some WCW staff members were still flying Delta, he was doubly ticked off. Chip on his shoulder and all, Gordon got on a Kiwi flight and began belting down some drinks, and then fired up a cigarette. When a flight attendant began to reprimand him, she got a strong dose of verbal abuse from him. When airline personnel complained to WCW about Gordon's behavior, someone at WCW filed that away in their memory for use at a future date.''


RYAN JENNINGS: Magnum T.A. had more wrestling talent in his little finger then Hoax Slogan has in his entire body. END OF STORY!!!
WALLY: Message to Quinten: No other site is going to beat David's Flair site because rfgolds.com is the best site on the internet.
BRUCE: Dale i am sure that Dixie is still trying to get Ric to come to tna, i know they were sending out feelers to Flair about 9 months ago but it wouldn't surprise me if they were still trying to get him now too.
KENNETH: YES IF IT WOULDN'T FOR ERIC BISCHOFF AND HULK HOGAN'S POLITICS THEN WCW WOULD BE AROUND TODAY NO DOUBT ABOUT IT, I BLAME BISCHOFF BECAUSE HE WAS PRESIDENT BUT I ALSO BLAME HOGAN BECAUSE HE HAD CREATIVE CONTROL IN HIS CONTRACT AND HE REFUSED TO JOB SO OFTEN THAT IT DESTROYED THE COMPANY.
D. HOBSON: Thank You "Mid Atlantic Wrestling For Life" for that great article on the dean of professional wrestling Gordon Solie, I am 44 years old so I remember very well Gordon calling the Ric Flair world title matches from the early 80's and don't forget Gordon Solie also announced the classic 1989 I quit match with Flair vs. Terry Funk and Gordon's announcing that night was awesome. R.I.P Gordon!!! He was the greatest!
ERIC: It is common knowledge that Bischoff and Hogan bankrupted WCW. Everyone knows that, but to be honest I don't really give a damn about Hogan.  I Never have and I Never will.
JAMES: Who can forget Starrcade '83: A Flair For The Gold?   and the announcers that night was Bob Caudle and Gordon Solie. Need I say more?? Woooo!
DONALD: even when wcw was great before Bischoff got there it was NEVER NEVER NEVER as good as the NWA led by Jim Crockett!!
LUKE J: David when I look at your site it makes me say WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
