    Ric Flair is by far the best wrestler who ever laced up a pair of boots. Enough said. Ric Flair's retirement angle was on of the best things WWE could have done for him besides giving him another title. Even if Triple H beats Flair's record of 16 he still won't really beat the record because Flair has one the big gold more times than that actually, it's estimated That Flair is more like a 25 time world champion. Ric Flair eats, sleeps, and breathes wrestling, he'll never be fully gone. I love Ric Flair and thank he is the greatest heavyweight champion of all time.moreless
