I can't quite remember if Flair would do the prat-fall in the WCW/nWo Nirto game, but he did execute a sweet dick-punch move and that will always grant him five stars from me.
Wrestling is so real! So lifelike!

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that it was disrespectful amongst pro-wrestlers to poorly "sell" a fall. Maybe it was more whimsical back then, because to believe otherwise would mean that Ric Flair was a giant dick and hated a lot of other wrestlers.
By the time even the first of these matches was filmed, it was already part of Flair's gimmick. It'd be about equally disrespectful to get mad at Flair for doing it, because it's just one of his bits, just like the "Flair tries and fails to attack from the top rope."
Also, flop aside, Flair usually sells like a fucking champ. I actually got to see him wrestle live a time or two, and even a couple dozen rows back you can hear him screaming bloody murder every time someone locks a hold on.
I was disappointed he didn't do a Flair flop in that Subway commercial or whatever the hell he was flogging.
LJ: I've been searching for old wrestling clips from around the time I was a little kid and I've discovered two undeniable facts:
1. Macho Man is entertaining as hell to the point of upstaging whoever he is feuding with and...
2. Ric Flair was a cool bad guy for having albino white hair, even if he flopped all over the ring.
Oh yeah. And 3. It's fake! Who knew!

Narcolepsy is not something to make light of, no matter how happy he seems.
Ric Flair is awesome.
easily one of the best 5 star wrestling compilations I've seen in a long long time, a wrestling diamond
