Following the end of the championship games, it set in that Super Bowl LI would feature two great pillars of popular culture – Thomas Brady and Richard Morgan Fliehr, also known as professional wrestling legend “Nature Boy” Ric Flair.
Flair, who has bounced around with his fan allegiances is now a full-fledged, card-carrying fan of the Atlanta Falcons.
The 16-time world champion, who resides in Atlanta, released a video today about the upcoming Super Bowl between the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots.
During the video, Flair lauded Julio Jones as the greatest receiver of all-time. Also, he mentioned Brady, who he met in the spring at the University of Michigan while stumping for Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh.
Flair was very respectful of Brady but said New England’s time has passed.
We’ll see about that on Sunday, Naitch.
Anyways, this should be a new requirement of Super Bowl week. Flair should just go around cutting promos on people. It would make things far more enjoyable leading up to the game.
