2-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair got a surprise birthday party last night at the 1818 Club Ballroom in Duluth, Georgia, where several high-profile sports stars and people from the world of professional wrestling all came together. The surprise party was thrown by his wife Wendy Barlow according to TMZ.
ESPN’s Arash Markazi was also invited and noted that individuals who were there for the party included Charles Barkley, Todd Gurley, Evander Holyfield, Dennis Rodman, Brad Nessler, Triple H, Ricky Steamboat, Michael PS Hayes, Shane McMahon, Chris Jericho, The Nasty Boys, Charlotte Flair, Booker T, and many others.
Flair’s arrival at the ballroom was captured on video by Markazi, showing an emotional Flair crying as soon as he enters the room with everyone chanting “Wooooo!” In typical Flair fashion, he also gave a 30-minute speech to cap things off!
WWE will be throwing another party – this time on live TV – for the Nature Boy on Monday Night Raw on February 25.
