WTF Has Happened to WWE Hall of Famer Nature Boy Ric Flair?

Tim ListAnalyst INovember 19, 2008
Remember the brilliant blog Paul Heyman posted in The UK Sun(http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/sport/wrestling/heyman/article1596414.ece) about how 16 time World Heavyweight Champion "Nature Boy" Ric Flair leaving WWE was a mistake because Flair should be on the big stage and not in some rinky-dink places doing appearances?
Well, check out this press release sent out by the NWA about an autograph appearance Flair is doing soon in Philadelphia:

The National Wrestling Alliance®, Harding Road Entertainment and HK Entertainment and Big Vision Entertainment presents the 10 Times NWA™ Worlds Heavyweight Champion “Nature Boy” Ric Flair at Chickie’s & Pete’s 1526 Packer Ave. in South Philly on Friday November 28. 2008 from 2:00 – 5:00 PM. Limited tickets for this autograph event are on sale now at all Chickie’s & Pete’s locations.
Chickie & Pete's? This is what Flair is reduced to? As the man many fans call "the greatest in-ring performer of all-time" continues to charge those very fans for his autograph and the privilege of taking a picture with him, his post-WWE career seems sadder and sadder by the day.
