For decades, Ric Flair has offered women rides on “Space Mountain,” to which he’s referred to in recent years as the “oldest ride…longest line.”
Well apparently he wasn’t joking.
According to TMZ Sports, Flair revealed that he’s slept with about 10,000 women during the taping of his upcoming ESPN 30 for 30 special.
Flair clarified his comments during a recent interview with People magazine, claiming, “I wish I hadn’t said that because of my grandkids.”
He added, “I love the ladies,” but he’s finally a one-woman guy and credited his fianceé and longtime companion, Wendy Barlow, for helping him change his ways.
“I only love one now,” Flair said. “I have never done anything since I met Wendy.”
In August, Flair underwent surgery for undisclosed medical issues and was considered to be in “critical condition.”
During his recovery, Flair has been active on social media, tweeting out positive messages and sharing videos of himself:
Earlier this month, Flair shared details of his recent health scare during an appearance on ESPN’s Dan Le Batard Show Thursday, which included 10 days on life support.
Flair, who is a frequent guest on the show, said he consumed about “20 alcoholic beverages per day” during his wrestling career.
Flair told People that he’s made positive changes for the better recently and intends to prove it to his fans.
“It’s going to be a hard sell overnight to say that ‘Hey, Ric Flair has changed,” he says. “It’s going to take time, it’s going to take proof.”
One thing’s for sure, it’s great to see the Nature Boy back in good spirits after a tough summer.
