Ric Flair Comments On People Doubting That He’s Slept With 10,000 Women, Says He’s Pain-Free Now

Ric Flair Wooo

As we noted before, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair claimed that he has slept with 10,000 women. A lot of people thought Flair’s claim was false and even gave theories for it. During a recent appearance on NBC Sports Radio, Flair commented on people doubting his claim & more. Below are the highlights:

On what he likes about his ESPN “30 For 30” documentary:

“I guess I like the fact that I’m about as open and honest with things that involved my children, my son that passed away, and I hope that the people understand that didn’t understand the work. In 20 years, I never had a day off. Twice on Saturday and twice on Sunday and that’s not an exaggeration. And most of the time, I’d wrestle an hour every night or two hours on the same day. And that’s a lot of traveling, a lot of wrestling. Tokyo, Japan one night, back to St. Louis, Missouri, Sydney, Australia the next night, Auckland, New Zealand, over to Japan, back home for a week, and then back in Japan.”

On regretting not spending enough time with his family back in the day:
“That’s the life I lived, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. I would trade it for the time now when I look back. I know my son is still very upset and angry and that’s something I have to live with, but he’ll never get over the fact that I wasn’t around enough. I’ll take the blame for it. I was very selfish. I wanted to be the best and I competed against myself because I knew I was that much better than everybody else.”

On people doubting that he has slept with 10,000 women:

“Well, if you do the math, I started when I was in seventh grade!” Flair laughed, “let me say that hypothetically, I slept with five people. You’d go to your friend next door and go, ‘bulls***!’ If I had said, ‘250,’ you’d go, ‘bulls***.’ If I said, ‘5,000,’ you’d say, ‘oh, maybe.’ I’m not far off on that number. It doesn’t mean that everybody was Marilyn Monroe by any means, but I’m not far off. I wrestled. I was really good at three things: I wrestled, drinking, and talking, saying ‘goodnight.'”

On being pain-free now following his recent health scare:

“Believe it or not, I feel great right now. This health issue, self-inflicted, I mean, I had two rotator cuff surgeries, but they are both… I am pain-free. I don’t have any hip injuries. All my guys, literally, all my guys from my generation that are still alive got hip, shoulder, ankle, elbow replacements. I’m really good in that respect.

I have a beautiful, new fiancé that I’ve been with for five years, and I can tell you honestly I haven’t naitched in five years, so you can put that down in the headlines. ‘Naitch’ no more, but I feel great. I guess the plane crash was the worst thing that happened to me. I don’t remember that, but I remember medical personnel saying, ‘I think we’re going to lose this one’ and I think they were talking about me.”
