Ric Flair Explains Why He Never Ran For Political Office

Ric Flair

Ric Flair has a good reason why he never became a politician although he also admits he certainly thought about it.

As a wrestling legend who’s a two-time WWE Hall of Famer with 16 World Championships to his name (some say that number should be higher), Ric Flair is one of the most recognizable wrestlers ever.

Whether you watched him in the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, or in more recent years, Flair is known for his trade “WOO” along with his many catchphrases, the strut, the Flair flop and so many other things. The fact that Flair, in his 70s, has appeared in rap videos with current stars has shown his influence on pop culture in a lot of ways.

Due to his immense popularity and being famous for over 40 years, wrestling fans may wonder why the Nature Boy hasn’t stepped outside pro wrestling more.

In an interview with FOX News, Ric Flair explained why he never ran for any sort of position in politics although he thinks he could have done it in 2001.

“No [I have not thought about running for President] but I should have run for Governor in 2001. But, they said I had too many skeletons in my closet. Imagine that! I’d make Trump look like a baby.”

The Trump he is referring to is of course Donald Trump, who is a former US President and WWE Hall of Famer who is running for President again in 2024.

Regarding skeletons in his closet, Flair has been divorced four times and has made claims that he slept with over 10,000+ women in his life.

Ric Flair Weighs In On What America Needs For A President

As for what America needs in a President, Ric Flair has a good idea about that too.

“I think we need someone who shows strength. We need somebody to say, ‘Hey, we are the United States. Kiss my ass!'”

Ric Flair currently works for All Elite Wrestling and has said he will support Sting in his final matches before Sting’s retirement at Revolution on March 3rd. Despite saying that, Flair wasn’t present when Sting & Darby Allin recently won the AEW Tag Team Titles. Flair has also said he’ll remain with AEW after Sting retires as well.
