TIM: all the Flair fans in Las Vegas better get ready for the Naitch this weekend because he is going to make a appearance at the "Field Of Dreams" from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday signing autographs.
JC: I would love it if Ric Flair would come to TNA wrestling. Hey David I know you are a Ric Flair expert so do you think the Naitch will ever invade the Impact Zone??

DONNIE: Hey Jay I am proud to say that I do live in Flair Country Charlotte Woooo North Carolina the house that "Flair" Built. WOOOoooOOOoooOOOoooOOOoooOOOoooOOO!
MARC GAITHER: The Webmaster David Matthews deserves a lot of credit for creating his Ric Flair Web Site, and David I have been to a lot of Chat Rooms, Blogs, and Message Boards since I have owned a computer which has been a long time but I can honestly say that I have never seen more informative entertaining heartfelt posts from so many wrestling fans like I see on rfgolds.com's Message Board. David I hope you never ever take the Message Board off your site because it is Awesome. Thank You Webmaster!!
L. FREEMAN: Tim I owe you man, I'm about two hours from the Las Vegas area Flair will be in this weekend and I am going to try my best to go see him. Thanks again for telling me about it.
ALAN: I'm glad that everybody who e-mails David posts for the messageboard has shut up about that SOB Hoax Slogan. I already know he is a ass hole without everyone saying it. I wouldn't care if he fell off the face of the earth. Keep the discussions on the Naitch please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FLAIRRULES: Woooo the Greatest World Champion of all time is the Real World Champion the Nature Boy Slick Ric Flair. Wooooooooo
GREG: The "Nature Boy" is going to be "The Face" of the North Carolina Lottery. Congrats Champ. Woooo!!
RANDY: I agree with everyone.  Keep the conversations only on Ric "FN" Flair. Seriously people does anybody else even matter except for the Nature Boy?
KEITH WATSON: Sheldon I bet Flair was paid at least 6 figures to be the face of the NC lottery. I bet they didn't pay him under 100 grand and it could have been half a million who knows.
NEIL: WCW after Eric "Jackass" Bischoff took over would still be going strong today if they wouldn't have screwed Flair and the 4 Horsemen over so many times. Yeah I would have to agree that the combination of Bischoff and Hogan destroyed the company and made them go bankrupt.
WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: Hello everybody.....We have a new page on the site called "Flair Appearance" that you fans need to check out especially all the fans in the Morehead City, N.C. area.......and I have to respond to Marc Gaither's post because it really means a lot to read posts like his.

First off I appreciate the kind words but I want to repeat what I have been saying for three and a half years and that is that without all the Ric Flair fans all over the world who support my site and send me the e-mails I don't think my site would be as special.

Of course I enjoy hearing all the positive reviews of my site but without all the fans then my site would be nothing, so just as much credit should go to the fans of my site then should go to me.

Marc I can make you a promise that I will uphold as long as I am breathing and it's that the Message Board is for life. The Message Board is here to stay and that is a guarantee, and more important then me and the fans both is the man himself, the greatest wrestler who has ever lived Ric Flair so lets don't forget that without him there would be no website to begin with.

Thanks to all the supporters of my website and keep sending them e-mails to me and I will keep posting them. This is the Webmaster Signing Off. Woooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!


S. CRAVER: Ric Flair will be in Vegas this Friday and Saturday for a personal appearance and autograph signing. Las Vegas is a kind of town primed and ready for Slick Ric!!


SAMMY: Hey David there was a good interview conducted with Taz recently and I know all the TNA fans in the message board would enjoy it so if you don't mind would you post it for me. Thanks Webmaster!

 

'Taz' jazzed up about color-commentator gig

Pete "Taz" Senerchia knows all about being the underdog.

At 5-foot-8 and 250 pounds, Senerchia overcame size limitations to become an Extreme Championship Wrestling star in the 1990s. He parlayed that success with a smaller promotion into a decade-long World Wrestling Entertainment stint as a grappler and then announcer after retiring from the ring in 2002.

Senerchia is now pursuing a new challenge as a color commentator for TNA Wrestling, the Nashville, Tenn.-based company.

"I couldn't be happier, Taz said in a recent telephone interview. "TNA reminds me of the original ECW, but with a real TV contract, real money and a lot of big names.

Working for TNA requires less travel while providing Taz a greater chance to expand his wrestling horizons beyond announcing.

"I do a little bit of everything," said Taz, who made his TNA debut in July as Samoa Joe's "adviser." "Backstage, I'm assigned to (watch) talent that they want me to help nurture. I've also given feedback on the TV shows from a different perspective, having not only wrestled for WWE but worked in the studio."

Taz admits that a "little part" of his decision to leave WWE stemmed from the demands company owner Vince McMahon places on his announcing crew. Taz called the action on "Smackdown" and then ECW after WWE relaunched that brand in 2006.

While offering some praise for McMahon and other top WWE officials, Taz said he performs "much better in a looser, relaxed atmosphere like TNA." McMahon's heavy-handed approach also prompted Mick Foley to leave WWE for TNA last year.

"At times, it's a little obnoxious to have so many people in your ear, Taz said. "You have to listen to your (announcing) partner, the executive producer and the company owner while trying to follow the talent in the ring and tell a story. I only have two ears, not six.

"If you have thick skin and want to be a WWE announcer, you'll do good. If not, you'll flop quick. Vince is very aggressive when it comes to the announcing because he's very well aware of how important it is. It's the last line of communication to the audience to sell the product."

Having built strong chemistry with WWE announcing partners Michael Cole and Joey Styles, Taz now hopes he can do the same with his new TNA sidekick. Mike Tenay has called TNA matches with Don West since the company's 2002 debut. Upon Taz's arrival, West was moved behind the scenes to oversee the company's merchandising.

"Mike has been a pro and totally cool to work with," Taz said. "Even where he's gotten at this point in his career, the guy is still looking to learn and evolve. You have to take your hat off to him for that.

"We've both been following each other's work closely the past several months assuming the (change) would happen. By the time we get to our 'No Surrender' show (on pay-per-view Sept. 20), I think we'll have just about hit our stride."

One thing you won't see Taz doing on "TNA Impact" (9 p.m. Thursdays, Spike TV) is wrestling. Although only 41, he was forced into retirement seven years ago because of chronic neck problems that still linger. Taz said he has "nerve damage in his arms and shoulders, numbness in his right arm on a weekly basis, and loads of arthritis in his spinal cord."

"I'm in pain all the time, but don't feel sorry for me," said Taz, who began wrestling in 1987. "That's part of the job, like with a football player who later has problems with his knees.

"A lot of times I get people who say I left (the ring) way too soon. I was just not going to be one of those guys who risk their future health. I want to be able to throw a baseball with my son with some velocity or without having to use a cane. Once in a while, my son will ask me, 'Dad, can you choke a guy out or use a suplex on him?' I tell him, 'I've got a bunch of DVDs you can watch that stuff on.


ROBERT: Oh My God the Nature Boy in Las Vegas for the weekend???  Wooooo you can bet your ass that Las Vegas has never had a party like the one the freakin Naitch will bring to town I guarandamntee you that!  I bet they will be Beautiful Women, Nice Clothes, Limousines, Rolex watches, Beer and Wine, and a lot of Kiss Stealin and Wheelin Dealin as only the Nature Boy can deliver. Go Get 'Em Champ and show them who the "FN" man is!!! Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!

JACOB: Thank you David for posting Ric Flair's upcoming personal appearances. I live not too far away from Rutherfordton, N.C. and I will most likely go see Naitch. Thanks again David. Woooooo!
PAUL MORANTE: Woooo glad you put the "Flair Autograph Signings" page back up on the site. I am wanting Flair to come to Minnesota for a appearance were I can meet him and tell him that he is the GREATEST PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER OF ALL TIME!!!!!!!
THOMAS LEVY: Diamonds are Forever and so is the Natcha Boy Ric "Wooo" Flair. He will always and forever be "The Man"
BRIDGET: The comment from Robert about Flair and Las Vegas is oh so true!  I also bet Flair had a big party in Vegas. I have always heard that everytime Ric Flair goes into a Bar that he buys every person in that Bar a drink. That is Legendary. It would be so cool to be in a bar with Ric Flair wouldn't it??
JOHN (GOING TO MEET MY IDOL) Wooooo great news!  I am in Emerald Isle, N.C. which is only about 30 minutes from the N.C. seafood festival in Morehead City so next month I am going to see the King of the Ring and the best damn world champion to ever step into a wrestling ring - Ric Flair. I am so excited! Wooooo
S. OLESON: David I know you told me that Ric wouldn't taking as many personal appearance bookings as he once was but it's good to see him still getting out there and meeting his many fans. I have met him once and it is the highlight of my life. Ric Flair is the nicest person I have ever met in my entire life.
JUSTIN: I like seafood! what better way to enjoy a day then to go eat some good seafood and meet Ric Flair and get his autograph.
MIKE H: I want Ric Flair to come to Houston, Texas. Since he retired and started his personal appearance tour I don't think he has made it here unfortunately. Come on Ric come to Houston..
TRAVIS: Happy Woober Day.  I mean Labor Day. I'm sorry I couldn't get the Woo out.  Seriously Happy Labor Day to all the Ric Flair fans out there on the message board.
MARK: I heard that Ric Flair was going to be on the Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon today but I don't know for sure. Does anyone know if the Naitch appeared on the Telethon?? WOW Ric Flair is everywhere!!!
JIMMY: I will never watch wwe ever again after seeing the first 15 minutes of tonights raw show was completely silly and stupid. No offence to Bob Barker but what in the Blue Hell does he have to do with wrestling?? and furthermore the first 15 minutes of the show was a spoof on the Price is Right game show for crying out loud. They tried to be funny but I got news for Vinny Mac. Nothing about his show is funny. Absolutely Nothing!! It is ignorant as hell and I am through watching the stupid crap.

TNA is a hell of a lot better then WWE and if anyone don't believe that then after witnessing tonight's raw they will believe it 100%. Vince McMahon should be ashamed of himself. Tonights raw is the exact reason that professional wrestling is a laughing stock in the mainstream media. That is why pro wrestling will never be on ESPN and they will never be as respected as Basketball, Football and Baseball as true american iconic sports

Professional wrestling used to be respected in the 70's and 80's under the NWA Mid-Atlantic Territory because that was true serious wrestling but when Vince McMahon came along he turned it into a complete joke and a laughing stock and tonights raw proves that he has no intentions of changing anything.

I'm not surprised that UFC gets higher PPV Buyrates and has a lot more sell-outs then wwe does. UFC is making a lot more money then WWE is and it's because of the garbage that Vince McMahon puts on his shows every week. I predict the UFC will keep kicking WWE's ass in buyrates and attendance for years to come.


RICKY K: Hey Webmaster David I seen on your home page to go to the new Flair autograph signings page and I'm happy that I went because I am gonna go to Morehead City to see Ric. Thanks for informing me about that. I appreciate it.
PHILLIP: I only seen the first 30 minutes of Raw and that was enough for me to turn the channel because it was TERRIBLE!!!  I like Bob Barker but who in the crap wants to see him on a wrestling show. It makes no sence. To be honest I think ever since Ric Flair retired Vince McMahon has been in panic mode. He is desperate because the loss of the Nature Boy was such a huge blow that he don't know how to recover.
SAMMY: Here is my weekly preview of TNA impact, as usual David you can put this on the message board. Thanks!

MICHAEL BAXTER: Travis said "Happy Woober Day"  and when I read his post I thought LMAO which is Laugh My Ass Off  for you people who don't know. He said he was sorry he couldn't get the Wooo out. LMAO again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LARRY: I seen the Naitch on jerry lewis's telethon yesterday.He was only on there for a couple minutes.I was lucky I seen but happy I did
DANGEROUS DAN: rumor is that vinny mac is trying very hard to get ric flair to come back to wwe and be general manager of raw but I think vinny mac is stupid because there is no way in hell ric is gonna to do it unless he gets to do his personal appearances and autograph signings etc. i know this was was true a few months ago but it's a rumor now but i bet it's true. maybe we should get the webmaster to fill us in on this issue.
PAUL WESTBROOK: I want to mention on the messageboard that a petition needs to be drawn up and sign my name at the very top of it followed by everyone else who dislikes what Vince has done to his show. If we as a group speak up we can be heard. I already signed a simular petion regarding the idiotic Hornswoggle vs Chavo angle. 

SAMMY: Hey David and everybody on the message board, I want you TNA fans to read a great interview with the "Blueprint" Matt Morgan. It is a great interview about a future superstar in the wrestling business. I think you fans will like it. Thanks as usual David.

Matt Morgan Discusses Headlining TNA, Goals, The IWC, & More

On his career goals in TNA:

"Cornette and other people who have helped coach and train me over the years have always said, ĎYou donít stop until youíre headlining pay per views. And even then, you donít stop. You keep doing whatever you can to improve.í And thatís what Iím still trying to do. I headlined this last pay per view and Iím main eventing again at No Surrender in a four-way match with Kurt [Angle]. People can just rest on their laurels, and I know itís clichť to say thatís just not what I want to do. But itís the truth. I donít. My goal is to not just be a TNA world heavyweight champion, but at some point, to be able to put the weight of this company on my shoulders, and carry it in al different facets."

On TNA pushing him despite him not being a past WWE headliner:

"When I first came, look at what they could have done. Test came in the first day I did. They could have done the same thing with me that they did with him. They could have put me in a match Ė said Iím a former WWE wrestler and put me in a mid-card match in the next pay per view, and blah blah blah. I probably would have wrote myself out of there in a few months for all I know. But they decided to take their time with me. And now Iím very lucky. I could almost be considered a home grown TNA talent at this point. They put the time and energy into rebranding me, rebuilding me and now Iím at where I am now. And I do believe they will putÖ that pressure on me [to carry the company.]"

On the prospect of getting a one-on-one world title pay per view main event:

"I donít want to ruin it. But, of course, thatís the goal Ė to do a one-on-one setting pay per view main event. But I think that comes along with the storyline, as well. I guarantee that will happen. Iím not just being an arrogant wrestler hoping thatís going to happen. IĎve already been told. I know it will. As long as I keep improving and doing what Iíve got to do and people want to see me, Iíll be fine."

On TNAís ratings and whether he could be a draw for TNA:

"Everybody talks about ratings and draws and buy rates and all this kind of stuff. Everybody still acts like itís 1998. Guys, wake up. Itís not 98. People get so caught up with, ĎOh, well they did a 1.5 this week, which is down from the 1.3. Who was in the main event?í No. That just means that thereís a select amount of people who were not tuning in for that particular moment or for that night. Itís not that big of number in the big scheme of things like it used to be back when the business was getting these huge, booming ratings. Those were telling numbers then Ė if they were to drop three whole ratings points. Ė not .2 or .26. Not things like that.

On the Internet wrestling community:

"And now were in a day and age where theyíre so Ė and I donít know why Ė theyíre so into negativity. Itís like, you read Star Magazine or you read People Magazine. Negativity on the magazine rack, it may sell. But on the Internet, itís almost like they follow suit too much. Thereís never a positive story. Very rarely do you see a positive story. Thatís why I never read the Internet and I never will. Cornette taught me that my first year in the business. And I said, "Why?" Because itís so darn negative. If youíre a young kid Ė I have 17-year-olds who have talked to me about ratings. Now, Iím sorry, but when I was 17 I was not thinking about ratings as a wrestling fan. I was thinking about going to see my favorite wrestler. I was thinking about things like that. Thatís what I was thinking about Ė not about the ratings crap, and not about like being overly negative. "

On gauging TNAís success from live crowds:

"I respect it, because thatís letting you know somethingís up. And thatís the gauge that I always trust the most. And I know what youíre saying. The people in the Impact Zone might have rose-colored glasses. I understand that. But, honestly, not all the time. They get hot. If they donít like something, they do let you know. Iím not going to give you an example. But if thereís something they donít like, they let the entire company know, for that matter, not just the wrestlers in the ring. And I like that personally. Others probably not, but hey."

On being his own worst critic:

"Cornette almost gets mad at me sometimes because I totally over-analyze certain things, or I used too. Not as much this year. And Iím noticing it is working. Iím just going out to the ring and letting things come to me and reacting instead of trying to make them happen, and then you end up looking like a D-rated actor, because wrestlers arenít the best actors in the world to begin with. Weíre the best re-actors, when weíre on our games, I think."

On making strides recently in his development:

"I mean, Iím 32 years old, and Iím really just coming into my character. I hate to say character, but coming into my persona right now, where things re clicking and Iím not thinking about things. Iím just reacting to them. I canít stress that enough. I donít know if that makes sense to you, Alfonso, but for me it does, because you can see it out there. You can see me having fun. You can see me, whether itís a grimace or a smile, itís a shoot."

On criticisms that he is too derivative of other wrestlers:

"I guess I could see the Goldberg thing earlier on, because Iím overly intense. And I think fans get into it if youíre an intense, big guy with muscles. ĎOh, youíve got to be doing Goldberg.í The only thing I recall being derivative of anything directly was doing a tribute to the Undertakerís top rope walk when I first started, and thatís because thatís my favorite pro wrestler of all time and he always will be. And heís a big influence on my career. And thatís all I was. And as my character changed, I stopped doing it. I did it a total of three times on TV. And now people think, ĎOh, heís trying to be the Undertaker.í No, not really, because Iím doing things Ė like my finisher. Have you ever seen anybody else do the Hellevator? I havenít. No ones ever done it, thatís why. I could tell you right now a little kid over in Japan is copying me, doing it. No oneís calling him the Matt Morgan derivative. You see - little things like that. Theyíll always find ways to be negative, because they were wrong in judging you when you first started your career, and people donít like to be proven wrong. And thatís fine by me. And I donít read their stuff to begin with, so I have no idea what theyíre saying."

On some fans discriminating against him because of his size:

"A lot of the fans want to see Ė I donít want to say the live crowd Ė but the Internet side of the community of wrestling fans want to see a lot of the flippy-doos. Nut when they guys do it and they break their necks doing it, theyíll criticize them for not illustrating great storytelling in the ring. And itís like, well you just got done saying you wanted everybody to push these guys, push these guys. And then they go out and do their thing, and you bury them for that. Itís like, stop being so negative and just be honest. And thatís what I think comes into play. If they canít write something nice, they just continue to bury them."

On criticisms of the type of hardcore wrestling exhibited in his feud with Abyss:

"Iíve had opportunities to say, ĎI donít want to do thisí or ĎIím not comfortable doing this.í I always think itís up to the wrestler, and it really is. I swear to God as my witness, itís up to performer. If youíre not comfortable doing it, you just donít do it. Theyíre not coming up to me and saying, ĎMatt youíve got to be bleeding from your forehead at this particular part of the match.í No one says that. Thatís up to us to come up with. Thatís up to us to say yes or no to. And no one is telling me to light myself on fire and do a triple moonsault off the top of the Impact Zone either. If I do that in order to get the 15 people that are smart marks in the front row to pop, thatís my fault. Thatís my fault for doing that."


BRIAN: Hey I was watching the football game yesterday between the Seahawks and the Rams and Julius Jones of the Seahawks scored a Touchdown and he went Woooo and he also did the Ric Flair Strut so there is no doubt that he is a fan of the Naitch.
SAMMY: Here is a preview for this weeks TNA impact. Thanks Webmaster Dave.

CHAD: Greg I would bet my life that the Flair lottery tickets will be collector's items. Guaranteed!!  this is going to be a big big deal.

BRIAN: WOOOOOOO I GOT ME A RIC FLAIR WOOO SCRATCH OFF LOTTERY TICKET TODAY AND FLAIR FANS I CAN TELL YOU WITHOUT A DOUBT THAT IT IS FREAKIN AWESOME. CONGRATS TO THE NAITCH ON THIS HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF BECOMING THE FACE OF THE N.C. LOTTERY AND GETTING HIS VERY OWN LOTTERY SCRATCH OFF TICKET. RIC FLAIR YOU ARE THE MAN   WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


GREG: I went to my local Texaco station today and the guy that works there told me that all the Wooo Flair scratch off cards have already sold out so if there is anybody out there reading this who is thinking about getting yourself a Wooo scratch off card you better not wait too long because obviously they are selling fast.
JENNIFER: I am going to get me a WOOOOOOO scratch-off lottery card tomorrow. I seen on the home page what they look like and they look good, but anything with Ric Flair's face on it looks good because Ric is a sexy sexy man. I will make him say WOOOOOO anytime he wants me to. I love Ric Flair  WOOOOOOOO
TIMOTHY: I seen the Naitch on a tv commercial today promoting the N.C. Education Lottery. It was fantastic. I'm happy for Ric and little did we know that after he retired he would be just as successful outside the ring as he was inside the ring. 
SAMMY: Hey Flair and TNA fans, here is the results from the TNA No Surrender PPV from last Sunday which crowned a new TNA world champion and the preview for this Thursday's TNA Impact, and I got me a Nature Boy Wooo scratch off ticket this morning. Thanks Webmaster Dave!

RESULTS FROM SUNDAY'S "NO SURRENDER" PAY-PER-VIEW EVENT: NEW WORLD CHAMP CROWNED, LASHLEY'S IN-RING RETURN AND MORE!
Results from the Pay-Per-View event:

- It kicked off with the finals of the Knockouts Women's Tag Team Title tournament, with Taylor Wilde & Sarita defeating The Beautiful People of Velvet Sky and Madison Rayne to become the first titleholders! Taylor got the pin on Madison, which obviously enraged Velvet Sky!

- Hernandez defeated Eric Young of the World Elite after Young refused to defend himself. After a quick beating, Hernandez beat Young with the Border Toss. Young is still trying to convince Hernandez to join World Elite and wouldn't fight the TNA big man.

- Samoa Joe of The Main Event Mafia defeated Daniels by submission to retain the TNA X Division Championship. In the end,after missing his Best Moonsault Ever, Daniels went for the Angel's Wings, but Joe escaped the hold and locked Daniels in a choke. With no escape, Daniels had no choice but to tap out.

- "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero defeated Suicide in a Falls Count Anywhere Match after a wild bout that featured both superstars using tables! Suicide attempted a huge leg drop from the entrance set, but crashed and burned through a table, allowing Dinero to get the win.

- ODB defeated Cody Deaner to win the TNA Knockout Women's Championship

- TNA Legends Champion Kevin Nash of The Main Event Mafia defeated Abyss with a taser shot after miscommunication between Mick Foley and Abyss. After the match, Dr. Stevie told Nash to finish Abyss, but Nash instead Powerbombed Stevie and took the $50,000

- Beer Money won the Lethal Lockdown Tag Team Match, defeating The British Invasion, Team 3D and TNA World Tag Team Champions Scott Steiner & Booker T. To win the bout, Beer Money gave Doug Williams the DWI after they had knocked out Brutus Magnus with a beer bottle on top of the cage.

- "The Boss" Bobby Lashley beat "The War Machine" Rhino! Rhino nearly had Lashley defeated after he hit the GORE, but when Rhino went for a second GORE, Lashley nailed him with a knockout shot that floored "The War Machine", allowing Lashley to get the pin!

- "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles defeated Kurt Angle, Sting, Matt Morgan and Hernandez in the Main Event to become the NEW TNA World Heavyweight Champion! Before the bout, Hernandez came out to cash in his World Title shot briefcase and he was added to the main event! However, he was later attacked and given a piledriver on the entrance ramp by Eric Young, leading to EMTs tending to the big man. In the end, Sting took out Matt Morgan so AJ could hit a big splash on Kurt Angle to get the pin and win the gold! After the huge victory, Daniels came out to celebrate with The Phenomenal One as a new era begins in TNA Wrestling!

ERIC: Hey i live in Greensboro and i went in a local gas station yesterday to pay for my gas and i decided to get one of the Ric Flair wooo scratch off tickets but as soon as i walked into the place there was a young woman woooing because she won $100.00 and she was strutting and woooing and everyone was laughing. It was funny and as i paid my $5.00 for my Flair lottery ticket I did a loud Woooo for everyone to hear but unfortunately I didn't win any money. There are 8 different amounts of money you can win on the Flair lottery tickets and I read that the odds of you winning one of the lower amounts are 1 in 3 so you have a 1 in 3 chance of winning which is not bad but the bigger amounts like the $100,000 amount is much harder to win. there is really no excuse for anybody not to play at least one time, you spend $5.00 on other stuff so why not try your luck with the Flair wooo scratch off tickets. $5.00 is cheap as hell and the wooo scratch off tickets are going to be real big collectors items years down the road.
ROBERT: WOOO  I WON 50 DOLLARS SATURDAY ON THE NATURE BOY LOTTERY SCRATCH OFF GAME. I PAID 5 DOLLARS FOR THE TICKET SO I AM 45 DOLLARS IN THE GOOD. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
PATRICK: I love the new ric flair lottery scratch-off tickets, they are awesome. Congrats Champ on having your own lottery ticket. Woooooo!
BOBBY GENTRY: Hey webmaster Dave the new hompage kicks ass man!! I was a huge Blackjack Mulligan fan, he is one of the toughest men to ever step into a wrestling ring, GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT picture of Blackjack and the Naitch.  wow them were the good ole days, didn't Blackjack and Flair win the world tag team titles in 1979??
RYAN: David I didn't think your site could get any better until I seen the new looking home page. that is a awesome photo on there. Keep up the good work! Woooo!
FLAIR-RULES: Julius Jones of the Seattle Seahawks scored a touchdown today and he did the Ric Flair strut again. He does a damn good Flair strut. He really does.
TIM: This is some interesting news, David put this e-mail on your message board. Thanks.

Lesnar Out-Shines Stone Cold & Hulk Hogan At Mr. Olympia

According to reports, there was a noticable amount more interest in Brock Lesnar than "Stone Cold" Steve Austin or Hulk Hogan at the Mr. Olympia yesterday. Lesnar reportedly had much longer lines for autographs than Austin and Hogan combined, and word is that Hogan and Austin were in seperate areas of the building which makes sence because Austin hates Hogan in real life.


JASON: going to get me a ric flair woooooooo scratch off ticket tomorrow. i am so proud i live in north carolina which is without a doubt ric flair country. ric flair owns this state. WOOOOooooOOOOoooooOOOOOoooooOOOOOooooooOOOOOOooooooOOOOOOoooooooOOOOOOoooo!!!!
DENNIS L: My brother is manager of a shell station here in town and he told me that the interest for the Ric Flair lottery tickets have been amazing. They have sold out one time and had to get more in. He said he has never heard as many Wooos as he has in the last week. I think the N.C. Education Lottery made a good decision to hire Ric didn't they??
BRENT: THE RIC FLAIR LOTTERY COMMERCIAL IS FREAKING HILARIOUS, I WONDER HOW MUCH THEY PAID THE NAITCH TO DO THE COMMERCIAL?
RANDY: no surprise to your post tim if you remember correctly one year at the wwe hall of fame banquet stone cold steve austin said that he feels like opening up a can of whoop ass on somebody and a good place to start was hulk hogan, he wouldn't supposed to say that in the script but he legit hates hogan so much that he said it anyway.
T. JENKINS: CONGRATS TO ALL THE RIC FLAIR LOTTERY WINNERS ON THE MESSAGE BOARD. I WISH I LIVED IN N.C. WERE I COULD PLAY.
DAVIS: I seen Julius Jones do the Nature Boy Strut and yeah he does a good one. Wooooooooooooooo
TONY JACOBS: Dennis, hell yes the N.C. Education Lottery made the best decision they could ever make to hire the Naitch. I mean let's get real, who else in N.C. has more power then Ric Flair??????????????
JOHN: WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOO, WOOOOOO
ALEX: Brock Lesnar may have out-shined Hogan and Austin but I guarantee you that he wouldn't out-shine the Naitch!  I bet Flair could draw more people to a autograph signing then Lesnar ever could.
R. MYERS: easy answer tony. NO"FN"BODY has more power in N.C. then "Slick Ric"  Wooooooo!!
DOUG: I have no idea exactly how much the North Carolina Education Lottery paid Ric Flair to be their spokesperson. If I had to guess I would say 6 figures.
EDWARD: Wooooo I won $100.00 this morning playing the Ric Flair Scratch off Lottery game. Can everybody give me a Wooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!
SARAH (LOVING THE WOOO LOTTERY TICKET) I got me a Woooo scratch-off nature boy lottery ticket and I framed it on my wall. Woooo now that is what you call a collector's item. WOOOO!
RUSSELL: I don't think people understand how hard it is for someone to actually get their face on a Lottery Ticket. That is something you don't ever see, I wouldn't a big Ric Flair fan growing up but even I have to admit that him getting his face on a Lottery Ticket is one of the biggest accomplishments I have ever witnessed. Congrats Ric on this huge honor.
SCOTT CLARKSON: THIS IS A GREAT ARTICLE ABOUT THE MAN!!!    WEBMASTER DAVE PUT IT ON YOUR MESSAGE BOARD. THANK YOU MY FRIEND!

He is a wrestler of unequalled vision and artistic genius -- his enduring bouts ... have earned him his undeniable place as #1 in the wrestling pantheon.

He is the embodiment -- the very definition -- of pro wrestling: a performer of unparalleled work ethic, the best promo man in history, a man dripping with charisma, a master psychologist and compelling storyteller possessing the ability to carry even the most hapless opponent to a five-star classic .... His emergence as one of wrestlings' biggest stars not only set the proverbial bar to unreachable heights, but also inspired a generation of fans to take up the sport.

No other wrestler consistently had the best matches in the world for a longer stretch of time, Wrestling over 300 times per year and appearing everywhere in the world as the National Wrestling Alliance World Champion, his matches and interviews are required study material for every wrestler who has ambitions to master the art of "getting over."

Because of his ability to consistently perform at a peak level while maintaining a barnstorming travel schedule, his finest work inside the the ring, although ignored by the traditional sports media, ranks alongside if not above the legendary accomplishments of Babe Ruth, Muhammad Ali, Wayne Gretzky, Michael Jordan, and Jack Nicklaus.

It is for these reasons that Ric Flair is at the top of the list and recognized worldwide as the Greatest wrestler of all time. No other wrestler can claim to "not just be the best wrestler" but to also be the best in so many areas. Ric Flair set the bar so high that he is like a massive elephant playing with a bunch of baby ants.  End Of Story!


TIM JENKINS: Hello David, I understand that you needed a break from the website, to be honest with you I can't see why you didn't take a much needed break a long time ago, people don't realize how stressful it can be to be the webmaster of a website, especially one that is consistently updated like your website has always been David, you don't have to apologize to anybody because you deserve a break, even with a break David your website is still updated more consistently then most websites I go to. Keep up the great work and post this message on your message board whenever you want. Wooooo to rfgolds.com for being the best site on the internet.
FLAIRGIRL: I am a lifelong Ric Flair fan. I used to see him in Raleigh all the time wrestling when I was a child. Today I got a tip that he was at Dick's Sporting Goods in Cary, NC. Of course I rushed over since I was close. I got to meet him in the parking lot. He was so nice....posed for pictures with me and my friends. To me....it was a Christmas miracle. I would truly have been heartbroken had he not been cordial. The fact that he takes time to meet and greet his fans even when we stalk him down when he is Christmas shopping attests to the fact that he is one class act. If he ever reads this....I hope he knows he made one "little girl's dream come true" 30 years later. I will send picture soon.
RYAN: SO SAD TO HEAR ABOUT EDDIE FATU (UMAGA) PASSING AWAY RECENTLY, WEBMASTER DAVE I READ A COMMENT THAT RIC FLAIR SAID ABOUT UMAGA AND BEING THAT RIC WAS WITH HIM A LOT IN HIS FINAL DAYS MADE ME ASSUME THAT YOU WOULD WANT TO PUT IT ON YOUR MESSAGE BOARD. THANKS!

RIC FLAIR'S COMMENTS ON UMAGA:"I was with him every day. I had dinner with him every night. I flew home with him. He was involved in every match on the Australian Tour. He was straight as could be. Eddie (Umaga) was a great guy."


DAVIS: Hello Flair fans, I read on-line that TNA is offering Flair big time money to come there but as of yet he still hadn't signed, when are they going to get the message that he obviously don't want to go there?
BOBBY L: I tried my best to watch a whole episode of wwe raw a couple weeks ago and all I could watch was the first 30 minutes and I had to turn the channel it sucked so bad, I always respected Ric Flair for being the best of all time but the Naitch wouldn't ever my favourite wrestler but if I am being honest I have to admit that wrestling hadn't been the same since the Nature Boy retired, I know Flair came back for a few matches but I'm not counting that but I am more sure now then I ever was that wrestling can't replace Ric Flair. He is irreplaceable!!!
CHAD: How great is it to know that a young guy like MVP thinks so highly of the Naitch??  awesome new article about MVP'S feelings towards The Champ!!  WOOOO!!
BRUCE: I REALLY ENJOYED READING THE COMMENTS THAT MVP MADE CONCERNING SLICK RIC, IT JUST SHOWS YOU THAT NOBODY IS RESPECTED MORE THEN THE "REAL WORLD'S HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION"
ALAN: Webmaster dave I have to admit that I was wondering if anything happened to you but when I seen the "Update from Webmaster" page it made sence to me besides the navagation on the right side of the page on your site is so massive that even without a update we flair fanatics got bunches and bunches of material to look through so take your time, as long as you don't ever cancel your website then everything is fine with me.
SARA: Where did U get the pic of Flair and David Crockett from the early 80's that was on the home page a few weeks ago?  that pic was great and I would love to have that pic on my wall.  Hugs and Kisses for Ric Flair 
GREG: TNA wouldn't know how to use Ric Flair; it is that simple, so I hope Ric don't waste his time with them.
CALVIN: IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN THE NEW BACKGROUND PICTURE OF THE NATURE BOY IS FROM '84 IN JAPAN AFTER FLAIR DEFEATED KERRY VON ERICH TO WIN BACK THE WORLD TITLE.  GREAT PIC AND THE HOME PAGE LOOKS FANTASTIC!
JC: the audio that plays on the home page is killer as hell, the nature boy is wishing everyone a merry christmas and a happy new year = wooooooooooo!!
S. WILSON: "Fantastic post Flair Girl"  That proves that Ric Flair is a class act.  "Thanks for sharing that with us"
LEWIS: Flairgirl your message was really good and anybody that tries to say that Ric Flair is not a 100% Class Act should have their head examined. Thank You for your wonderful post.
RIDGE: David I am glad to be able to read more posts on the message board but take all the time you need and post the messages how often you want to, I check the site often anyway so you do it how you want to do it. I am truly thankful that there is somone like you that has a tribute website to my favourite all-time athlete of all time (Ric Flair) so I appreciate everything that you do. Wooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
TYLER: yeah that is sad about umaga passing away,  ryan i am glad you informed us what ric said about him because i hadn't heard that before
NATALIE: FLAIR-GIRL GREAT POST, I WAS IN THE CHARLOTTE AIRPORT BACK IN '96 AND I SEEN RIC FLAIR GETTING READY TO GET ON THE PLANE AND I RAN OVER TO HIM AND ASKED HIM FOR HIS AUTOGRAPH AND HE WAS VERY NICE AND EVEN CHATTED WITH ME A MINUTE, AS HE WAS SIGNING MY AUTOGRAPH A CROWD OF PEOPLE GATHERED AROUND HIM AND HE SIGNED EVERY AUTOGRAPH BEFORE HE GOT ON HIS FLIGHT, THERE WAS A LITTLE KID THAT ASKED HIM TO DO THE WOOO AND THE STRUT SO RIC WOOOED AND STRUTTED THROUGH THE CHARLOTTE AIRPORT, I JUST WISH EVERY OTHER FAMOUS CELEBRITY CONDUCTED THEMSELVES OUTSIDE THE RING LIKE RIC FLAIR DID. OH I FORGOT TO MENTION THAT I GOT A KISS ON THE CHEEK FROM THE MAN HIMSELF TOO. I DIDN'T WANT TO WASH MY FACE EVER AGAIN.  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

FLAIR-FOREVER: Diamonds are Forever and So is Ric Flair and www.rfgolds.com.   Wooo, Wooooo, Woooo, Wooooooo, Wooooooooooo, Woooooooo.

JAMES M: I read other day that wwe's ratings have dropped several percentage points in the last year without Ric Flair compared to the last year when they had Ric Flair, it was something like 350,000 less people watching now then watched when Ric was on there every monday night, no wonder TNA wants him cause they need help in the ratings.

RYAN: Happy New Year David and Happy New Year all you "Nature Boy" Ric Flair fans. Something tells me that Ric Flair will make a big impact in 2010!  Wooooooo!

LARRY: HAPPY WOOOO YEAR!!!

ROBERT: Amazing Job on the website Dave!   I hope everybody that reads the messages on the board don't skip Natalie's post cause I thought it was a great read,  I would have loved to see the little kid tell Ric to Wooo and strut and see him do it in the Charlotte Airport.  AWESOME!

DALE NEWTON: Happy New Year Nature Boy Slick Ric and I hope you get a lottery ticket here in Maryland like you did in North Carolina, Maryland is also "Flair Country" WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

TOMMY: Once upon a time I wanted Ric Flair to join TNA wrestling but with the latest events of TNA it makes me believe that they will end up just like WCW and that is not a place I want Ric Flair to be, he put up with enough crap in WCW so I don't want him to go through that sh#t again.

JOSH: tna and dixie carter are crazy as hell if they think that there will be a monday night ratings war again, lol this is a different time then 14 years ago, wrestling is not as popular as it was then and tna hadn't got the money that ted turner's wcw had back then so tna don't have a chance in hell at beating wwe.

DEREK: Happy Woooooooooooo Year to all the Flair fans out there, I wonder what kind of New Year's Eve party the Naitch threw last night?? I guarandamntee you that nobody can throw a party like "Nature Boy" Ric Flair, I would die to have been at that party, I bet there was Dom Pťrignon champagne, Beer, Liquor, Wine, Beautiful Ladies, Dancing all night and Dancing a little longer, Strutting, and knowing the Naitch I bet there was some Kiss Stealin and Wheelin Dealin going on too, and when the ball dropped at 12 midnight I bet the Real World's Champion let out a big WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

BRIAN: Don't get me wrong it was good to see Ric Flair on TNA, but my Question is what in the hell was TNA thinking by having the greatest talker on the mic of all time (Ric Flair) on the show and not even having him talk?????????? What the hell is up with that????

RICHARD: THE MAIN REASON I WATCHED TNA TONIGHT IS BECAUSE I HEARD A RUMOR THAT RIC FLAIR MIGHT APPEAR ON THE SHOW AND AFTER 3 FULL HOURS OF WATCHING THE SHOW ALL TNA DOES IS SPIT IN THE FLAIR FANS FACE BY NOT LETTING HIM CUT LOOSE ON THE MICROPHONE! WHAT A "FN" JOKE!

K. PAXON: The A.J. Styles Kurt Angle match was great but does anyone have a clue as to why they brought Flair out there on the ramp to just stand there? I don't think it make any sence!

JASON: I was a TNA fan until tonight, yes they brought back some big former superstars but WCW had big superstars too in the 90's and you see were they ended up! I will make a prediction and that is if Dixie Carter lets Hogan and Bischoff have any kind of legit Booking power then TNA will go out of business real fast. Mark my damn words people! Bischoff and Hogan are lovers and they only care about themselves and I feel sorry for Flair because after viewing TNA'S show tonight it is very obvious that they don't have any idea how to use Ric Flair because if they did then for God's sake they would have given him the damn microphone!! Ric Flair with a Microphone in his hand equals Ratings so I guess TNA don't want any Ratings. Tonight was such a Waste.

BLAKE: I watched TNA last night and the best thing on the whole show was Kurt Angle vs. A.J. Styles! I have a big big problem with bringing wrestlers back that you know ain't capable of working a full schedule or giving the best performance they can give, like Scott Hall, I enjoyed Hall's work 10 years ago but now he is a fat out of shape alcoholic who looks bad and who can't compete at near the level he used to, Syxx has had drug problems too so how can he be trusted, mostly everyone agrees that the main reason WCW went bankrupt was because of the booking of Bischoff and Hogan and the way guys like Jericho, Flair, Arn Anderson, Jeff Jarrett, Dean Malenko and Eddie Guerrero were treated like garbage, I think TNA will be ok as long as they don't make terrible booking mistakes like WCW did but I understand why people are thinking TNA may be in trouble because they are hiring the same people that caused WCW to go Belly-Up. Very Very Big Mistake!!!

JOHN KESLER: my 8 year old son watched tna and after it was over he looked at me and said "Daddy "Why didn't Ric Flair talk on tna tonight" I said "boy I have no idea" For Heaven's sake if my 8 year old son realized how big a mistake it was for Flair not to talk on the mic then something is really wrong with this situation!! You get my point Flair fans?

CHAD: Jason you're right! if Dixie Carter is that STUPID then it will be the END of TNA but let's pray she ain't IGNORANT enough to give Hogan and Bischoff total creative power. As for not giving Flair the Microphone that is totally a STUPID move but hopefully next week we will get to hear him talk.

ALEX: WOOOOOO HELL YEAH THE NATURE BOY STYLED AND PROFILED STRAIGHT INTO THE IMPACT ZONE LOOKING AS ONLY HE CAN LOOK, NOW I CAN FINALLY GET MY DREAM MATCH:: RIC FLAIR VS. STING ONE MORE TIME, PLEASE DIXIE CARTER MAKE IT HAPPEN. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

MATTHEW: I wonder what Paul Westbrook thinks about the big news of the Nature Boy going to TNA?  I used to see his posts on the message board frequently and I read the posts all the time and I don't see his name as much as I used to. Dang he used to sign all the time. Where are you at Paul?  Don't you still watch the greatest of all time Slick Ric Flair?

GREG (RIC FLAIR IS TNA) Yes it was ignorant that Flair didn't get mic time this past week on TNA but the bottom line is that I am very happy that the Naitch is in TNA!, I have wanted him there for several years and now he is there. Good Luck Ric and show them who the man still is. Wooooo Woooooo Woooooooooooo

EDDIE: Now that the Greatest wrestler of all time is in TNA I want to see Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting, Ric Flair vs. Sting!!!!! Do I make myself clear?????

BRIAN WATKINS: DAVID YOUR WEBSITE IS THE BEST WEBSITE EVER, THE REASON IS THAT IT IS UPDATED CONSISTENTLY, I REALLY ENJOYED READING THE NEW PAGE AND WHAT MICK FOLEY SAID ABOUT FLAIR GOING TO TNA, AND THE OTHER NEW PAGE WAS GREAT TOO. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK, PUT THIS E-MAIL ON YOUR MESSAGE BOARD. THANKS AND GOD BLESS YOUR WEBSITE. I VISIT IT EVERY DAY.

TYSON: I am happy that the Champ is in TNA but I don't trust Eric "EGO" Bischoff and Hulk "EGO" Hogan for a second, they have always been jealous of the GREATEST WRESTLER OF ALL TIME RIC FLAIR, Thank God that Dixie Carter owns TNA instead of Hogan and Bischoff,  I have to agree with Jason though, if Dixie don't watch her back and if she lets them two snakes in the grass (Bischoff and Hogan) get away with anything then she might be looking for another job in the future because TNA might go straight to Hell.

KEVIN: This message is to all the Flair fans who are concerned over Ric's position in TNA. I got a solution to everything, instead of watching the whole two hours of TNA impact and having to endure the stupid bull sh#t like Hogan and his bedroom buddy sweetheart Eric Bischoff, Why don't you fans just record each show with your DVR, don't watch it live and then when you go through the broadcast only watch the parts that feature Ric Flair and then your problems are solved. The reason I give this example is because that is what I have been doing the last 10 years. Screw everybody but the Nature Boy!!    WooOOoooOOOoooOOOooooooooOOOOOoooooOOOOoooo!!!!!!!

DENNIS: WOOOO THE HOME PAGE IS FREAKIN AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!! WOOOOOO  A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS.  I WILL NEVER RETIRE:  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

PAUL WESTBROOK: Hi Matthew. Sorry I havent been out to the board as much but I do tend to get busy with stuff from time to time as I act in local theatre. Yes I still love to watch Ric and thank goodness I have the 17 videotape set called Ric Flair; Legend, as well as Ric Flair and the Four Horsemen dvd set, The Ultimate Ric Flair Collection dvd set, Ric Flair; The Definitive Collection dvd set, and the four disc Highspots Ric Flair shoot interview dvd set I got a year ago. Let's just say Matt I can have a Ric Flair viewing party anytime. lol But again I do miss coming out here more often and hope to in the near future as you guys are terrific. Now as for Ric being in TNA I very much do hope they decide to utilize him in the correct manner so that they make fans of TNA and Flair all happy.

JAMES D: You Guys hit the Nail on the Head.  "Nature Boy" Ric Flair vs. "The Icon" Sting one more time, that would blow the roof off the Impact Zone, I hope it happens, speaking of Sting,  the Respect he showed Ric Flair other night that I read in the "case for Ric Flair" article is beyond words can describe!!  I respect the Stinger because he truly respects Ric Flair.  Dixie Carter I also want to see Ric Flair vs. Sting,  I don't give a rat's ass about Hulk Hogan,  I want Ric Flair vs. Sting.

CHARLES (TNA PLEASE GIVE FLAIR THE MICROPHONE) nice flair collection you got paul, i agree with dennis I like the home page as well, i will never retire! woooo,  my opinion on ric going to tna is wwe's loss is tna's gain, other then ric's retirement storyline i didn't think ric was used correctly in wwe. i mainly want ric flair to get microphone time in tna, it's been said a million times but it is so true, nobody can do a promo like ric flair, the excitement and entertainment in a ric flair promo is second to none, i had rather watch a flair promo then anybody else's match, i will be happy with ric in tna as long as he has the microphone in his hand.

ROB: Woooo you fans ain't the only ones that want to see the Stinger and the Naitch go one on one again, they are my favourite all time matches, nothing compares to the Stinger vs. the Naitch, I hope it takes place as well. this time in a tna ring

JOSH: I would like to see Flair wrestle Robert Roode of Beer Money!  I think that would be a great match, Roode is underrated and a great wrestler and wrestling Flair is all he needs to move to that next level.

KYLE: HEY JAMES I DON'T THINK ANYONE CARES ABOUT HOGAN OR BISCHOFF SO YOUR NOT ALONE MAN, WHAT I DO CARE ABOUT IS SEEING THE NATURE BOY FREAKIN EXPLODE ON THE MICROPHONE!  THERE IS NOTHING LIKE SEEING RIC EXPLODE ON THE MIC. I HOPE TNA LET'S RIC FLAIR BE RIC FLAIR AND NOT HOLD HIM DOWN LIKE WWE DID.

BRUCE: I have never watched TNA before but now that Ric Flair is there I will be watching, all because of Ric Flair.

JEREMY: Mike Tyson was Guest Host of Raw Monday night and did everybody see what he done as soon as he stepped into the ring, he grabbed the microphone and did the Ric Flair Woooo!  I couldn't help but think that TNA had to be happy to see that lol, Word is that Tyson is a big Flair fan so he decided to do the Wooo as a Tribute to him, the only problem is that Ric is not on WWE anymore he went to TNA. I am glad Tyson did it and it just shows how mainstream popular Flair is, I can't begin to count all the Celebrities from other sports who admire and respect Flair. Mike Tyson done the Wooo while Ric is on the competition's show, Take that McMahon!  Woooooooooooooooooooooo!

MARTY: I agree with everybody who wants tna to let Flair do promos! no doubt about it it is a well known fact that nobody can do a promo like the Naitch, if TNA don't let Flair do talk then they are a bunch of dumb asses.

J. PINNIX: Wooooo I am so Excited because tonight I get to see the Nature Boy Style and Profile in the Impact Zone of TNA wrestling, it makes me say Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

SHANE: I watched pro wrestling non-stop for 26 years but almost two years ago I completely stopped watching because my favorite of all time Ric Flair retired, I didn't watch a episode of wrestling until last week when I heard a rumor that the man might join tna, now I am watching full-time again and my passion for wrestling is complete because of one man = The "Nature Boy" Ric Flair.  Welcome Back Champ!

CHRIS DAWSON: Jeremy good point dude and have you fans noticed at the beginning of wwe raw when they play the opening raw theme music they are still featuring a video clip of Flair?  that is interesting but it may indicate a good working relationship between McMahon and Flair.

PHILLIP: I HOPE RIC FLAIR BECOMES A.J. STYLES MANAGER AND STAYS WITH HIM FOR A LITTLE WHILE AND THEN TURNS ON HIM AND SLAPS THE FIGURE 4 ON HIM AND MAKES HIM TAP. WOOO WOOOO WOOOOOO WOOOOOOO WOOOOOOOOOOO

BRANDON: Space Mountain may be the oldest Ride in the Park, but it Still has the longest line!  Woooooooooooooooooooo!

DEON: Ric Flair on TNA makes me interested in wrestling again for the first time in a long time, so Flair Fanatics what does everyone think Ric should do in TNA?  let the discussions begin.  Hooray for Ric Flair in TNA Woooooo!!

JC: I can't explain how happy I am that Ric Flair is back in wrestling, without him it has been boring as hell, I am a Ric Flair fan more then I am a wrestling fan so now that Slick Ric is back I will be tuning in to TNA every week. Thank You TNA. Wooo!

RICK: TNA is Ric Flair and Ric Flair is TNA. Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

MICKY: Wooooo did you hear the crowd pop for Flair when they introduced him on TNA thursday night?  What a pop.  The crowd went nuts over the champ.  Woooo Diamonds are Forever and so is Ric Flair Wooooooooooooooo!

KYLE: Yes Flair vs. Robert Roode would be a cool match but I wouldn't mind seeing Flair beat the Hell out of Eric Bischoff again!  Flair even poked his finger in Bischoff's eye backstage in 2002 for real and he was going to kick his ass but Bischoff run from him because he was scared lol.

S. WILLIAMS: Webmaster Dave Keep up the good work man!  I love reading the posts on the messageboard because I can tell that the people who e-mail you are smart and intelligent wrestling fans. Don't ever take the messageboard off your site. Thanks Webmaster Dave for everything you do for the greatest wrestler who has ever laced up a pair of boots! Wooo!!

PAUL BANKS: So how many of you fans like Flair's new TNA version of the 2001 Space Odyssey?  I love it, it is played with a Electric Guitar and even though I like the WWE theme it's nice to have a change once in a while, Very Cool New Theme.

JOEL: Dixie Carter has a opportunity to have one of the most successful wrestling companies of all time if she wants it, all she has to do is keep control of her company and not let the ego's of Hogan and Bischoff sway her to make any decisions that she wouldn't make herself, ego's in wrestling can destroy a company and cause them to go into the toilet just like Bischoff and Hogan caused WCW to do. Please Dixie don't make the same mistake that they made, oh and one more thing.  Give Ric Flair the Microphone and tell everybody else to get the hell out of his way.

DWAYNE (TREAT THE MAN WITH RESPECT) I don't have a problem with Ric going to tna it's just that i want him to be treated with respect;; he deserves that after he has not only been the greatest performer ever in wrestling but the nicest guy that there has ever been in sports;; I'm talking about all sports not just wrestling, Ric Flair is the definition of class act so if Dixie Carter and the writers at tna don't treat him with respect then I will stop watching their product. Long Live Ric Flair!

FLAIR-RULES: I read a interview were eric bischoff was talking good about ric flair and acting like nothing ever happened between them and I was thinking to myself "who does this guy think he's fooling?"  Ric Flair will never never never forget what that SOB done to him and if I was Eric Bischoff I would be careful around Ric Flair.  I wouldn't put it past Flair to do the same thing to him that he done before, and this time Bischoff might not be able to run like the Coward that he is.

KEITH L: Hey Webmaster Dave put this on your message-board. It is something that Sting done in the dressing room right before the TNA live show on 1/4. It is great. I'm sure you will get a lot of e-mails about this. Thanks.

Prior to the 1/4 TNA Impact taping, Sting put Ric Flair over huge in front of the entire talent roster, saying that he owes all of his success in pro wrestling to Ric Flair. He went on to say that Flair put him on the pro wrestling map in the late 1980's, and that in addition to being a friend, Flair is also a mentor to him. Sting also said that Flair is the main reason why he decided to stay on with TNA for another year so that he would have the opportunity to work with Flair once again.

CURT: I am ready to see the Nature Boy and Sting go at it again and then I want to see the Nature Boy win his 17th World Title, in reality he has won 21 World Titles but they recognize 16 of them. Sting is one of my favorite wrestlers ever and his matches against Flair are classics.

WEBMASTER DAVID MATTHEWS: Hello everybody, I would like to Thank all of you who have e-mailed me recently with your wonderful posts for the message board.......I have received some great informative posts lately and most of them have been about Ric joining TNA wrestling...........

Speaking of TNA:  Ric just completed his first publicity photo with the company and I decided to put it on the Home page so I am sure you all with enjoy it........I have received a lot of e-mails too regarding my feelings about Ric in TNA and hopefully in the near future I will express my feelings very in-depth about the situation, in the meantime my message to all the Flair fans is to sit back and enjoy seeing our hero on a more consistent basis and support him no matter what.

We Flair fans should feel lucky and blessed to be able to witness our hero when a lot of people thought he would never be back on TV consistently......I am a true Ric Flair fan in every sence of the word and I will support him till the day I die. So let's enjoy the Ride..........Webmaster, David Matthews.............Woooooooooooooo.................

JENNIFER: The new TNA Publicity picture of Ric on the home page is Smokin Hot   No man has ever looked that damn good in a suit, Ric gives a new meaning to the term "Styling and Profiling",  Space Mountain is indeed Alive and Well.   Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

BRIAN: I am very angry because I wake up this morning to find out that not only was Ric Flair on the TNA PPV last night he played a very important part of the main even event between A.J. Styles and Kurt Angle, Flair influenced A.J. to turn bad and hit Kurt with the title belt, the reason I am mad is because to my knowledge I had no idea that Flair was even going to be on the PPV, if I would have known that me and three of my buddies would have went in together and ordered it. I like the way Flair was featured on the PPV but for god's sake why didn't TNA tell us that Ric was going to be on there, they are losing money that way right??

DEREK: i watched the ppv tna genesis and i was pleasantly surprised to see the naitch, and the ending was shocking but good, aj styles got exactly what he needed and that was some charisma courtesy of the nature boy, aj styles is a awesome wrestler but he don't have much charisma but now that he is teaming with ric i think aj will understand what charisma is all about. flair will do wonders for aj styles. congrats tna for (so far) treating the naitch with respect.

WILLIE (FLAIR AND A.J. STYLES ARE GONNA BE UNSTOPPABLE) What a great bout between Angle and Styles at the Pay-Per-View last night, Flair was at his classic best with him cheating for A.J. to help him retain the title, then I loved it when Flair and Styles did the "Flair Strut" together at the end of the Pay-Per-View. WOW!   Woooo!

JAY: Yes David we should feel honored to be able to witness the magic of Ric Flair for as long as he wants to stay in the business. I hadn't ever really watched tna that much before but when they hired my idol (Ric Flair) I knew I was going to have to give them a chance because I can't go without supporting the Nature Boy. Welcome back Champ!

KYLE: Diamonds are Forever and so is A.J. Styles and Ric Flair and TNA wrestling WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

FRANK: A.J. STYLES IS GETTING READY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING BUSINESS IN THE NEXT MONTH WORKING WITH RIC FLAIR THEN HE DID IN THE 7 YEARS HE HAS BEEN IN TNA COMBINED.

RICKY: Wooo Ric Flair has taught AJ Styles how to strut Woooooooo  go get 'em AJ Styles the tna world champion.

TIM WILLIAMS: A.J. Styles is my favourite current wrestler and "Nature Boy" Ric Flair is my favourite all-time wrestler so you Flair fanatics can imagine how thrilled I am at the partnership of the Phenomenal one and the Naitch. I love it. Wooooooooooo

R. PAXON: I have watched TNA since they started in 2002 and I always seen potential in AJ Styles, It's obvious that he is a great wrestler but I agree he needed some confidence in the charisma and personality department. No More Worries there because with the help of Ric Flair I seriously believe that the confidence and personality issues he had before will be gone.  Flair can't do it all for him but there can be no greater rub then then one you get from Ric Flair.

ALAN: I am dying to see one of the greatest feuds ever in wrestling take place again. "Ric Flair vs. Sting"  "Oh Yeah" Woooooooooooooo!!!

BRADLEY: WHAT A GREAT FLAIR-ENDING TO THE TNA PPV SUNDAY NIGHT AND I'M VERY INTERESTED IN SEEING THE FALLOUT OF WHAT TOOK PLACE ON TNA IMPACT THURSDAY.

SCOTT R: it was funny as hell to see a.j. styles do the "nature boy" strut,  i think flair can teach a.j. a lot about the wrestling business.  a.j. is a damn good wrestler but flair can teach him the psychology of the business like nobody else can and that is very important.

TRISHA: Wooo so happy to see the Naitch walking that isle in tna wrestling, I missed him so much. Now I can finally watch wrestling again. Wooo

JT: I wonder if they will hold off on Flair vs. Sting till TNA's ppv Bound For Glory. U would think that they might but then again that is over 8 months away so I think they won't wait that long.

TYLER MILTON: Oh Hell Yeah the Nature Boy is finally in TNA. I was wanting him to go there in 2007 when they were screwing him over in WWE by putting him in the ring wrestling Carlito every week.  I don't care what anybody says WWE did NOT treat Flair with respect especially from 2006 - 2008 - with the exception of the retirement angle and the wrestlemania send off. That's the only time he was treated with respect. Look at Flair now, he is the manager of the TNA World Champion and he is the reason A.J. kept the world title so Flair is in the main event storyline exactly were he needs to be. Screw you WWE and Thank You TNA.
