It’s impossible to listen to Ric Flair and not get amped up, so it made all the sense in the world for the Cleveland Cavaliers to call on the pro wrestling legend.
Flair was on hand Thursday night for Game 4 of the NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena where the 15-time world heavyweight champion did his best to get Cavs fans pumped up before the team’s game against the Golden State Warriors.
Flair, decked out in trademark robe and feathers, took to center court where he did a custom version of his famous promo to get the fans going. Also, as you might imagine, there were plenty of “Woos!”
Flair certainly looked to have himself a great time, too.
Coincidentally, Flair’s appearance came on the same day that wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes died at age 69. Flair and Rhodes were rivals over the years, and that famous Flair promo actually was aimed at Rhodes.
