THE LEGENDARY RIC FLAIR SITS IN FOR HIS FIRST INTERVIEW AND PHOTO SHOOT IN YEARS(IN VEGAS, NO LESS) TO TALK BLOOD, BOOZE AND BABES.

IT'S 7:30 IN THE MORNING, MR. FLAIR. WHEN DO YOU USUALLY LET OUT THE FIRST WOOOO OF THE DAY? 

IT DEPENDS WHO I'M WITH. IT COULD BE PRETTY EARLY IN THE MORNING, ESPECIALLY WHEN I'M IN LAS VEGAS.

YOUR ALL TIME GREATEST SIN CITY MOMENT, PLEASE.

I WAS WITH THE FOUR HORSEMEN IN 1985. WE HAD OUR OWN PRIVATE JET. WE WERE ON THE GREAT AMERICAN BASH TOUR. WE WORKED IN FRISCO, SEATTLE, PORTLAND, L.A., ALBURQUERQUE AND VEGAS. THIS WAS OUR HUB. WE STAYED AT THE TROPICANA FOR A FIVE DAY RUN. WE FLEW BACK TO THE HOTEL AT MIDNIGHT AND PARTIED UNTIL 8:00 A.M.,WORKED OUT AND THEN LAID IN THE SUN ALL DAY. WE DID NOT GO TO BED FOR FIVE DAYS.

CAN YOU EVEN REMEMBER THOSE FIVE DAYS?

THANKFULLY, NO.

ONE COULD INJURE HIMSELF AT THAT FRENZIED PACE.

I NEVER HURT MYSELF. THOUGH I HAD A COUPLE OF GIRLS SLAP ME PRETTY HARD.

THAT'S THE KIND OF DEDICATION THAT MAKES YOU A CHAMPION.

YEAH. IT WAS PHENOMENAL. BUT THE LAST DAY I WAS FLYING HOME, I HAD A NERVOUS BREACKDOWN. I JUST CRACKED.

THE NATURE BOY WAS REDUCED TO TEARS?

NO, I DIDN'T CRY, MY MIND JUST STARTED PLAYING GAMES.

YOU WERE IN A PLANE CRASH IN 1975. DID YOU CRY THEN?

I'VE MENTALLY BLOCKED OUT MUCH OF IT. WE WERE AT 4,000 FEET. WE WERE 1,400 POUNDS OVER GROSS. NORMALLY TREES WILL CARTWHEEL A SMALL PLANE WHEN IT CRASHES. WE WENT THROUGH THE TREES. WE WERE GOING 300 PLUS MILES PER HOUR. IT WAS BAD NEWS. WHEN WE HIT THE GROUND, THE SPEEDOMETER WAS STUCK AT 220, WE LANDED IN A RAILROAD EMBANKMENT LIKE A DART. BOOM! JUST 500 YARDS SHORT OF THE RUNWAY. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?

YOU'RE HEAVILY INVOLVED IN POLITICS. WHEN WILL WE SEE YOU RUNNING FOR GOVERNOR OF NORTH CAROLINA?

MAYBE IN 2008. MY PLATFORM WOULD BE EDUCATION, CRIME, HEALTHCARE FOR THE ELDERLY AND HIGHWAY TOLLS.

WHAT ABOUT THE WHITE HOUSE? IF YOU WERE PRESIDENT, WHAT ROBE WOULD YOU WEAR TO YOUR INAUGURATION?

SOMETHING MADE OF GOLD AND WHITE. BUT I'LL NEVER GET THERE. WHAT I WILL DO IN NORTH CAROLINA, THOUGH, IS PUT IN AN HONEST DAY'S WORK FOR AT LEAST ONE TERM. I'LL TELL THEM THE TRUTH. AND THAT WILL GET ME ELECTED.

ARE YOU FRIENDLY WITH ANY OF YOUR FAMOUS CAROLINA CONSTITUENTS, SUCH AS MICHAEL JORDAN AND RICHARD PETTY?

I'VE HUNG OUT WITH BOTH OF THEM A LOT. I USED TO GO TO THE DAYTONA 500 WITH PETTY, AND I GO TO PARTIES WITH JORDAN.

DOES JORDAN LIKE TO WOOOO?

NOT AS MUCH AS CHARLES BARKLEY DOES.

JORDAN'S GOT THE EYE OF THE TIGER.WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU TOOK HIM ONE-ON-ONE IN THE RING? AND HOW WOULD YOU TAKE HIM DOWN?

IT WOULD DEPEND ON HOW MAD HE MAKES ME AND WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCES ARE. HE'S A GREAT ATHLETE.

HOW MANY ROBES HAVE YOU OWNED OVER THE YEARS?

AT MY PEAK I HAD PROBABLY HAD OVER 35. RIGHT NOW I OWN 20. I HAD MORE, BUT I'VE GIVEN SOME TO CHARITY AND I'VE LOST EIGHT OF THEM. I'VE HAD THEM STOLEN OUT OF DRESSING ROOMS, AIRPORTS, OVERHEAD COMPARTMENTS. IT'S BEEN BRUTAL. MY FAVORITE WAS A PEACOCK ONE WE TRASHED IN '78 IN A WRESTLING MATCH. I WISH I'D NEVER DONE IT, IT COULDN'T BE DUPLICATED.

YOU JUST GOT MARRIED. WHY DIDN'T YOU WEAR A ROBE TO THE CEREMONY?

THEY WERE NOT ALLOWED.

EVER BEAT THE SNOT OUT OF A DUDE WHO SIMPLY WOULDN'T GO AWAY?

A COUPLE OF TIMES. MOSTLY GUYS TRYING TO SHOW OFF FOR THEIR GIRLFRIENDS. THEY WERE ONE PUNCH FIGHTS. BUT I DON'T GET INTO IT WITH GUYS ANYMORE. IT'S HARD TO BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF SOMEBODY NOW WITHOUT PAYING FOR IT, BECAUSE OF THE LAW. PEOPLE CAN SAY AND DO ANYTHING TO US, AND WE CAN'T DO TOO MUCH ABOUT IT.

YOU HAD ONE OF THE MOST DEDICATED STALKERS IN CELEBRITY HISTORY. HOW DID IT GO DOWN?

IT STARTED IN THE LATE 80'S. THIS CHICK FROM FLINT, MICHIGAN. EVERYWHERE I WENT SHE WAS THERE. I HAD HER ARRESTED IN DETROIT. I HAD HER ARRESTED IN CHICAGO. I HAD HER ARRESTED IN DAYTONA. IN CHARLOTTE SHE BIT A POLICEMAN WHO WAS TRYING TO ARREST HER. SHE MOVED TO CHARLOTTE AND STARTED WORKING AT BURGER KING AND HARASSING MY FAMILY. ONCE SHE JUMPED UP IN THE COURTROOM AND CALLED MY LAWYER A WHITE MOTHERF_ _KIN HONKY, THEN CALLED THE JUDGE A RACIST. THEY HAD TO RESTRAIN HER IN COURT.

DID THEY STRAP A SILENCE OF THE LAMBS MASK ON HER?

NOTHING LIKE THAT. BUT GOD, SHE WAS BRUTAL. SHE WAS SIX-TWO AND WEIGHED ABOUT 180 POUNDS. SHE GOT SENT BACK TO JAIL FOR FIVE MONTHS AND THEN GOT RIGHT BACK ON MY ASS AGAIN, SO WE GOT HER PUT BACK IN. I HAVEN'T HEARD FROM HER SINCE. IT WAS A NIGHTMARE. IT WENT ON FOR YEARS.

CERTAINLY THAT MADE RIC FLAIR CRY LIKE A LITTLE GIRL.

NO. IT WAS JUST ANNOYING. I INSULTED HER. I CALLED HER EVERY NAME IN THE BOOK, TERRIBLE THINGS. SHE JUST WOULDN'T GO AWAY. THERE WAS NO WAY TO INTIMIDATE HER. ONCE SHE PULLED UP IN FRONT OF THE AIRPORT SHERATON IN CLEVELAND. THE COPS WERE ALREADY THERE. SHE TOOK OFF GOING THE WRONG WAY DOWN I -70 IN A HIGH SPEED CHASE. IT TOOK NINE COPS TO TAKE HER DOWN. SHE WAS A COMPLETE WRECK.

WHY IS IT A LIGHT BREEZE CAN MAKE RIC FLAIR'S FACE BLEED?

I DON'T KNOW. I LEARNED A LONG TIME AGO THAT I'M A BLEEDER.

DO YOU REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME YOU BLED IN THE RING?

IT WAS 1974. A GUY MADE ME BLEED, AND FROM THAT NIGHT ON, IT BECAME PART OF MY LIFE.

WHAT'S THE MOST PAINFUL HIT YOU EVER TOOK?

I GOT HIT IN THE HEAD WITH A METAL FOLDING CHAIR SO MANY TIMES DOING STUFF WITH EDGE AND TRIPLE H A COUPLE MONTHS AGO, I HAD A EQUILIBRIUM PROBLEM THAT'S JUST NOW HEALING. IT'S JUST NOT NORMAL TO GET HIT IN THE HEAD WITH A CHAIR 20 TIMES A MONTH. THESE GUYS WILL SAY, "OH, THEY'RE ONLY HITTING YOU ACROSS THE BACK." LET SOMEBODY HIT YOU ACROSS THE BACK WITH A METAL CHAIR AS HARD AS THEY CAN. I DON'T CARE HOW FLAT THE SURFACE IS, IT'LL STICK YOU, MAN. BUT WE SET THE PRECEDENT, AND WE CAN'T GO BACK ON IT. IF SOMEONE IS GOING TO HIT YOU WITH A CHAIR, THEY NEED TO HIT YOU WITH A CHAIR.

ONE LAST TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE, WHY WERE THE 80'S SO GOOD?

BECAUSE WE WERE LIKE THE BEATLES, ELVIS AND THE ROLLING STONES ALL WRAPPED INTO ONE, WRESTLING WAS ON FIRE, IT WAS JUST UNBELIEVABLE. BACK THEN THE CHICKS WERE EVERYWHERE. ONE NIGHT I GOT ON TELEVISION AND SAID, "THE FOUR HORSEMEN ARE RENTING A SUITE ON TOP OF THE BALTIMORE MARRIOTT." I SAID ANY GIRL BETWEEN THE AGES OF 18 AND 28 IS INVITED, NO HUSBANDS, NO BOYFRIENDS. YOU SHOULD'VE SEEN IT, MAN. THE LOBBY WAS UNBELIEVABLE. YOU HAD TO FIGHT YOUR WAY THROUGH IT. WE HAD AT LEAST 300 WOMEN IN THE ROOM. YOU COULDN'T WALK. THEN I STARTED DOING IT EVERYWHERE. ACTUALLY, WE USED TO DO IT HERE IN VEGAS DURING THE SUMMERTIME WHEN ALL THE COLLEGE GIRLS WERE IN TOWN. WE HAD A LOT OF FUN. 

IS THERE ANYONE ON THE CURRENT ROSTER OF SUPERSTARS WORTY OF CARRYING YOUR TORCH?

NO ONE. IT'S NONTRANSFERABLE. BACK THEN, IT WAS ME AND RODDY PIPER. HE AND I WOULD FLY TO AND FROM TOKYO, HIM IN HIS KILT, ME IN MY ROBE. THE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS LOVED IT. THE CHICKS IN THE OLD DAYS WOULD ALWAYS ASK, "WHAT'VE YOU GOT UNDER THAT ROBE?"

I THINK THAT'S AN FAA VIOLATION THESE DAYS.

I JUST DID IT SIX MONTHS AGO. BUT I'M NOT DOING IT ANYMORE BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW HOW IT'S GOING TO PLAY OUT. BUT THEY SURE DO WANT TO SEE IT. "PUT YOUR ROBE ON!" "I CAN'T." "PLEASE!" "OKAY".

            SPEED ROUND WITH THE "NATURE BOY"

             MOST RIDICULOUS PURCHASE EVER?

GOT DRUNK AND SPENT $40,000 ON TWO FUR COATS. STILL GOT ONE AT HOME. NEVER WORN IT.

                    RIC FLAIR CELEBRITY FAN?

OWEN WILSON. I WAS IN A BAR IN L.A., HE CAME OVER, WE TALKED ABOUT THE FOUR HORSEMEN FOR HALF AN HOUR.

                                         WRESTLING IS...

A ROUGH AND TOUGH SPORT. WE NOW USE THE TERM SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT, BUT AS FAR AS ALOT OF THE PUNCHES AND THE BUMPS WE TAKE, THEY ARE REAL. IT IS A VERY PHYSICAL BUSINESS.

                                           MY HOBBY IS...

POWERBOATING. I'VE GOT A 35 FOOT CABIN CRUISER. I DEEP SEA FISH AS WELL.

                                   WORDS OF WISDOM?

IN LIFE, STRIVE TO BE THE VERY BEST IN YOUR CHOSEN FIELD. WORK ETHIC IS HUGE. I HAVEN'T MISSED TEN DAYS OF WORK IN 34 YEARS.

IF WRESTLING DIDN'T EXIST, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING RIGHT NOW?

DENISTRY. I WAS PRETTY THRILLED WITH THE IDEA BACK IN THE DAY. BUT THEN SOMEONE TOLD ME THERE'S A HIGH SUICIDE RATE AMONG DENISTS. SO THAT DREAM PASSED PRETTY QUICKLY.
