Default What will Ric Flair's final legacy be?.....

Ric Flair, the Nature Boy, is a legend.....I think we can all agree upon that.....but, is he hanging on too long?.....will (possibly) the greatest of all time tarnish his legacy by hanging around and becoming Terry Funk revisited?....

Flair, the NWA champion, the WCW champion, the WWF champion.....is hurt right now, 55 years old, and still insists on being an in-ring performer on a consistent basis....

So, if he continues on and we see a broken down wreck where once was a proud and brilliant wrestler, will the fans continue to see the legend that is Ric Flair or will he end up being disdained by the common fan?.....

let's go.....I demand some responses.....

btw.....thanks to Exo for the push to make me a mod.....

now, I'm going to work.....you guys get in line and help out here......

Well I am seriously scared for Ric Flairs health, I always have the fear that he will get seriously hurt while wrestling. Ric Flair definately is a legend and deserves all the credit in the world, he paid his dues and got over with the fans. He was a champion in the NWA, WCW, and the WWF but that was years ago. I think Ric Flair has to let it go. I do respect Ric Flair for all he's done, but there are times when you have to let it go. I seriously hope he dosen't become Terry Funk and wrestle untill he's 65. If Ric Flair continues to wrestle than he would get hurt and it would be painful, a legend like Ric Flair should not have to retire because of an injury, if he retires it should be because he wants to. If Ric Flair continues to stay in the WWE than he should not wrestle, he should just be a manager for Evolution. So in my opinion I think Ric Flair should retire before he becomes seriously hurt

Nothing will ever tarnish Flair's legacy. He will always be a legend. For christ's sake, if having your head shaved by Vince Russo, being placed in a mental asylum, and having been jobbed at to Rico barely blemishes your reputation, it just goes to show that while untarnishable diamonds in this buisness are rare, Flair is definetly one of them.

Personally, I think it would be best for him to get out of the ring. He can take a bump or blade job every now and then, but his time should really be spent working with the younger crew. Getting guys up to speed and teaching them what he's learned through the years. Experiences most of these guys will never have, he can teach them. But at some point, he needs to step down, and prolly soon.

Everyone will remember him for all the great things he's done, that won't change. He's just too big for that to happen. His legend hasn't been hurt by anything that's happened since he showed up back in wwe anyway. I mean, it's not like they made him Mr America or anything. But should he keep wrestling much longer, I think he's going to generate more resentment than anything else. Fans are going to wonder what this guy is still doing out there. It's hard to destroy your status as a legend, and I doubt it will ever happen in Flairs case, but there is something to be said about overstaying your welcome. And that's what I think he's in more danger of doing than anything else.

Also, Flair is 20 times the legend that Funk is.

btw, np oeo.

Ric Flair, along with Hulk Hogan will die in the ring, It's just something they were born to do.

In no way does Flair Wrestling Now Tarnish his legacy...Sure..He may be hanging on to long...But it's not like that's going to tarnish all he's done in his carrer...His Final Legacy in my opinon will be all the World title Reigns...I think it's 15...correct me if I'm wrong..But when People say...The 15 time world Heavyweight Champion..Ric flair will pop into everyone's mind..it's that simple...and IMO...he's still not a really bad preformer....I'm not saying he should continue wrestling....But..He isn't really bad at all..

I dont think you could ever tarnish Flair's legacy. His past speaks for itself. I just worry about his present. He is being wasted in Evolution. This guy should be the top manager in the game right now with his mic ability. He needs to be managing people that have no mic skill. Having him as a back drop for Orton or HHH is stupid. I think if you moved him over to Smackdown and paired him with the likes of Benjamin and Haas or maybe even the Basham's, even though I like The World Greatest Tag Team more, that he could be better utilized.
