Ric Flair Addresses Haters, Doubles Down On 10K Claim

"The Nature Boy" Ric Flair has done and seen it all...perhaps a little too literally.

In an interview while recovering, Flair claimed that he'd slept with 10,000 women throughout his life. This prompted half of our readers -- us included to turn into mathematicians trying to figure out possible scenarios. When speaking to NBC Sports Radio earlier this month, Flair doubled down.

"If you do the math, I started when I was in seventh grade!" Flair joked, "Let me say hypothetically I slept with five people. You'd go to your friend next door and go, 'bullsh-t!' If I'd said, '250,' you'd go, 'bulls-t.' If I said, '5,000,' you would say, '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, talking, saying 'goodnight.'"

Ron Jeremy would call out Ric Flair after his initial claims, saying that the number was bogus. While Jeremy certainly isn't an expert in the wrestling field, but he's well versed in the "sleeping with lots of women" part.

Needless to say, Wilt Chamberlain's record is still well out of reach for anyone, or something. I dunno. This story can't really end soon enough.

In the full interview, Flair goes on to talk about the passing of his son Reid and his own current health.
