Triple H and Ric Flair’s new wife, Wendy, threw Ric a surprise seventieth birthday party yesterday and – well, wait, let me stop right there and just say this: LET’S NOT THROW RIC FLAIR ANY MORE “SURPRISE” PARTIES, I MEAN, WHAT THE FUCK KINDA IDEA IS THAT?!
Anyway, he walked in to a room full of family and friends ready to celebrate the life of “The Nature Boy” – to the gangsta tune of his own entrance music, might I add – and predictably bawled his eyes out for an uncomfortably long amount of time before anyone came over to comfort him and say hello. That’s what Ric does nowadays.
When folk did start surrounding the Naitch with love, though, I started to get a grasp of just how many legends were gathered in that one room, and how eclectic a guest list this god damn party must’ve had!
We’ve got Triple H, who’s basically a son to Ric at this point, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, one of Flair’s greatest rivals, Michael P.S. Hayes, dressed in just as much douchebaggery as you would expect, Shane McMahon, Chris Jericho, The Nasty Boys, some more friends from the business…annnnnnd then it takes a turn when Todd Gurley, Charles Barkley, Evander Holyfield, Dennis Rodman, Brad Nessler, and countless other completely random celebrities and athletes enter the picture. I mean, read this tweet…
“Charles Barkley helping Ric Flair open a present from The Rock’s mom.”
Unbelievable. Even better when you realize the present is an autographed picture of Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. Imagine getting to the point in your life when people are getting you autographed pictures of yourself for your birthday?!
Other highlights from the party include Dennis Rodman’s outrageous outfit…
Flair and Steamboat watching and reminiscing on their old matches together…
Oh, and an apparent THIRTY-MINUTE SPEECH from the man himself!!!
Unbelievable. If Migos weren’t busy with whatever they’ve got goin’ on I’m sure they woulda been there as well.
Long live The Nature Boy!!!
P.S. Hey guy livetweeting the party…how bout you put some respeck on Ric’s name and have some faith that the old man would pull through?
