Ric Flair isn’t just a legend in the world of wrestling – apparently, he’s also something of a lady killer after claiming to have slept with 10,000 women and counting.
The 68-year-old WWE hall of famer made the startling revelation during a segment from the upcoming ESPN 30 for 30 documentary chronicling his career to date.
Flair has never been shy when it comes to professing his love for the ladies and has made a habit of referring to his penis as “Space Mountain” because women like to … well, you get the picture.
It’s probably worth taking Flair’s claims with a bucket load of salt though. After all, he did “reveal” last year that he once hooked up with Halle Berry in the mid-90s.
“Of course she did. She was in Atlanta and just got divorced from David Justice,” he told listeners on The Ric Flair Show back in October 2016.
Berry went on to rebuff the claims through a third party, though Flair has never backed down over the boast. But despite his claims over bedding some 10,000 women – which would amount to roughly 188 conquests a year from the age of 15 – Flair has more recently confessed to feeling some regret about his past.
“What I said was the truth, but I feel bad now that I said some of it,” he told People. “Ten thousand women. I wish I hadn’t said that because of my grandkids.”
Flair is currently on the road to recovery after undergoing surgery to have part of his bowel removed. Though fans initially feared for Flair’s life, he has since made a full recovery.
He won’t be adding to his tally anytime soon though – Flair is happily engaged to fiancée Wendy Barlow. “I only love one now. I have never done anything since I met Wendy,” he told People.
Flair is not the first wrestler to make outlandish claims about his skills with the ladies either. Scott Steiner once claimed he’d slept with 15,000 women in a single year.
That’s 41 women a day or roughly one every 35 minutes.
