Ric Flair said some things at Philadelphia’s annual “Wing Bowl” this week, like advising the crowd to “Get drunk (and) eat chicken wings.”
In addition to that sage advice, Flair also weighed in on the Super Bowl LI matchup between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons.
Playing off the local Philly crowd, Flair mentioned that Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan grew up in Pennsylvania. Flair — a Falcons fan himself — also left no doubt as to what he’s expecting when Atlanta squares off with the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI.
That’s a follow-up to this video, in which Flair did give the Patriots their due — “To be the team, you’ve got to beat the team” — before dropping a “Woooo” to finish.
Patriots fans normally shouldn’t be worried about what the 16-time world champ has to say about football, but the Falcons did come through on The Nature Boy’s promise to the Green Bay Packers two weeks ago in the NFC Championship Game.
And it also sounds as though Flair is gonna be limousine riding and jet flying to Houston for Sunday’s showdown.
Now we just need Massachusetts native John Cena — and newly crowned 16-time champ himself — to meet Flair in Houston for a little pre-WrestleMania throwdown. Maybe we could even do it at halftime of the game.
