The greatest professional wrestler of all time, Ric Flair, says he’s joining the Three Stripes. In a 90-second airport entrance interrogation by TMZ, the Nature Boy claimed he would be pegging Nike down to the ‘second [best] brand’.
Flair was tight-lipped on the details of his deal, not willing to divulge any names tied to the agreement. He did speculate that it could involve Kanye West, despite not knowing the rapper was already part of the adidas umbrella, until TMZ told him.
With remarks like ‘it’s not going to be Air Jordan anymore, it’s gonna be Air Flair – and I can’t jump’, some grains of salt will be taken judiciously with the former WWE champion’s statements.
However, the always-entertaining performer is sure to make more bold broadcasts sooner than later. Stay tuned to Sneaker Freaker.
