Former WWE superstar Ric Flair was forced to issue a clarification on social media after the ‘Nature Boy’ became the talk of the town, courtesy to an unidentified viral image.
The picture, which saw Flair hitting top trend on Twitter, was of a man, having similar features to the WWE Hall of Famer, snapped in an awkward position in a public locomotive.
“This Picture Is As Real As That Other One Floating Around. The Nature Boy Doesn’t Ride Trains! WOOOOO WOOOOO!” – Flair wrote in his tweet, which also had a caricature of him riding a train.
The former WWE star also confirmed the same to TMZ sports, stating the man in the photo pleasuring a woman was not him.
Meanwhile, the identity of the man caught in the act is yet to be confirmed.
Ric Flair’s likely AEW future
After ending his association with the Vince McMahon company, Flair is likely to feature for WWE’s biggest competitor AEW. The 72-year-old was seen alongside Andrade El Idolo, daugher Charlotte Flair’s fiancé, at AAA Triplemania XXIX as Andrade’s manager.
At the event, Andrade fought AEW world champion Kenny Omega for the AAA Mega Championship. Flair also got involved in the action as he first hit Omega with his famous chops, and went on to lock, another wrestler Konnan, with his iconic figure-four leglock.
