Ric Flair, the undisputed wrestling icon, has just unleashed a jaw-dropping revelation that’s sending shockwaves through the wrestling world.

The Memphis-born superstar, known for his flamboyant persona, has always kept his early life under wraps due to his adoption. However, a recent interview with none other than Shannon Sharpe exposed a dark secret – Ric Flair was snatched away by child traffickers right after his birth!

In a gripping conversation, The Nature Boy didn’t shy away from the heart-wrenching truth when grilled by Sharpe:

Sharpe: “Is it true that you were stolen?”


Flair: “Yeah.”

Sharpe: “By child traffickers?”

Flair: “Yeah.”

Sharpe: “So, when did you discover that your parents were actually your adoptive parents and not your biological ones?”

Flair: “I think I was around five.”

Imagine the shockwaves that revelation sent through the wrestling world! Ric Flair, the man who’s entertained millions, had a traumatic start to his life that nobody could have anticipated.

But the bombshell didn’t end there. In a later segment of the interview, Ric Flair dropped another bombshell. He revealed that, despite being contacted by his biological brother twenty-six years ago, he had no interest in rekindling any family ties, suspecting ulterior motives.

“It was twenty-six years ago when somebody reached out – my brother. Back then, my real name was Fred Phillips. My brother reached out to me, but I had no interest. Perhaps he just wanted to borrow some money.”

Ric Flair’s life is clearly a rollercoaster of unbelievable twists and turns, and this shocking revelation adds yet another layer to the story. Even though he’s mentioned his estranged brother before, Flair remains laser-focused on his wrestling career, currently dominating the scene at AEW.
