Ric Flair is notorious for buying a round for the boys at the bar after events. Many wrestlers have shared their drinking stories with Flair over the years and despite being in his 70s, Flair is still going hard at the bar.
Appearing on The Week In Wrestling podcast, Frankie Kazarian shared his Ric Flair at the bar story from their time together at TNA/IMPACT Wrestling.
"I was walking into the hotel bar and Ric sees me walking and is like, 'Kaz, where you going, brother?' 'Up to my room.' 'Put your bag down and get over here.' You don't say no to that. This is a regular hotel bar, we're sitting there and having beverages and getting a little loud. A group college-aged guys come in and notice Ric Flair. They walk over and are like, 'Ric Flair! Woooo!' [He greets them] and is very polite. They keep going and he goes from polite and nice to 'this is a private party.' It's absolutely not a private party, it's a public hotel bar. The guy's are like, 'We just thought we could get a picture' and [Ric] goes, 'GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE! THIS IS A PRIVATE PARTY!' The guys are like, 'This isn't a private party!' and Ric goes into character. Security is like 'gentlemen.' To placate him going forward, they brought a velvet rope and put 'Private Function' on it because it was going to continue to happen," Frankie recalled.
No one man should have all that power.
