Charlotte Flair’s father, Ric Flair is still rocked by the spirit of death as everyone wonders on what is his current state of health.
Saturday’s “Legends of Wrestling” event in Fort Myers was canceled, but not before The News-Press interviewed WWE superstar Ric Flair last month.
Rather than waste a good interview, we decided to write the Flair story anyway. Here’s what the flashy former wrestler had to say about:
How he’s doing after last summer’s death scare, which included emergency surgery and 10 days on life support for multiple organ failure.

I’m doing great! It was a year anniversary last Tuesday. I’ve healed, and I had the second operation to repair the stoma.
I feel great. And I’m blessed, man, no kidding. It’s been phenomenal.
Someone gave me another chance. Not someone, but you know, The Man gave me the opportunity. I feel very special and I feel very happy to be in the position I’m in.
His daughter, Charlotte Flair, who’s also become a WWE star.
I live my life vicariously through my daughter. She’s doing phenomenal. She’s above and beyond the legacy.
His famous “Woo!”
It started in 1974. It’s just something I came up with. You know, I started doing it (laughs), and it just caught on. Thank God!
Why he misses wrestling.
I’m not saying it wasn’t hard, but I didn’t look at it as just work. I loved it. It became a way of life for me. I loved it, and I miss it a lot now.
But like I said, I really enjoy watching my daughter, and I attend a lot of events. And through my relationship with her, I stay in touch with a lot of the kids who all come out… It’s been a wonderful experience.

I had mine made by Olivia Walker, who passed away. She was a seamstress that made all the stuff for Loretta Lynn, Glen Campbell, Tammy Wynette…
She worked with all the country-and-western people, and I was fortunate enough to meet her. She made all my robes until the day she passed away. She was the best.
