Ric Flair Talks To FOX 5 Atlanta

Ric Flair: “I Am Preoccupied With Dying, I Think About It Every Day”

WWE Hall Of Famer “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair recently spoke with the folks from FOX 5 Atlanta to promote Monday night’s WWE RAW 25th Anniversary special. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On his addiction to alcohol: “I don’t carry a flask, I don’t drink at home, and I’m a social drinker. I mean my whole life, I never drank during the day. But at night, when I’m through working, yeah, I drank. I didn’t start ‘day drinking’ until probably right before my son [Reid Fliehr] died. And then, I really, after he passed away, it was 10 in the morning until 2 a.m. every day.”

On the lead-up to his health scare in August of 2017: “I knew that something was going on because it really hurt. So, she [Fiance’, Wendy Barlow] took me and, sure enough, my intestines had ruptured.”

On feeling lucky to still be alive today: “You have no idea. You want to know something? I am preoccupied with dying, does that make sense to you? I think about it every day.”
