Evans was spotted coming near to Ric during the tag team bout in an attempt to get into Charlotte's brain. It appeared to work when, in the last minutes of the contest, Flair tripped his daughter Charlotte, costing her the match. After the match, Evans hit a fatal blow to Charlotte's head with a steel chair.
In response, Ric told Evans that he would be next if he didn't leave town immediately. Evans left but later returned under the guise of checking on Charlotte. At this point, it is assumed that Evans killed him too, since there is no evidence that Charlotte survived this attack.
After Evans' death, Ric told anyone who would listen that he did not want revenge against Charlotte but instead wanted to protect himself from being hurt by her again. Ric also said that he could not forgive himself for losing his only child.
In 2018, following the release of The Evolution of Ric Flair book, which included this story as one of many about his career, Ric Flair stated that he still misses Evans but has moved on from their falling out years ago. He also mentioned that although he never forgave himself for losing Charlotte, she would have been proud of him for taking care of his own business instead of letting it consume him.
Ric Flair began pounding on McMichael's wife, Debra, who sat ringside during WCW Monday Nitro in April 1996. McMichael challenged Flair, Arn Anderson, and Kevin Greene to a bout with his partner, Kevin Greene. Before the fight could take place, however, McMichael was attacked by Anderson, who was angry that Debra had rejected him earlier in the night. As a result, McMichael was hospitalized with multiple skull fractures.
Flair would go on to defeat Anderson via disqualification when Anderson struck McMichael with a guitar. After the match, Flair made several attempts to convince Debra to leave her husband and join him but she refused every time.
In August 1996, it was reported that Debra had filed for divorce from Greene because of the incident involving Anderson. However, this report has been disputed by others involved in the incident. In any case, Debra later married Greene and the couple moved to Tennessee where they started a business repairing air conditioners.
Meanwhile, Anderson has said that he will continue to harass Debra even after her divorce from Greene is finalized. He has also claimed that she contacted him directly after the incident to say that she still loves her husband and wants nothing more than to be left alone.
It is rumored that Debra once worked as an exotic dancer before marrying Greene.
WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair recently discussed his final encounter in WWE against Shawn Michaels in a recent interview. He disclosed some intriguing facts about the match, which he thinks was critical to its success. Ric Flair was scheduled to face HBK in his last match at WrestleMania 24. However, due to health concerns, Vince McMahon replaced Flair with Bret Hart. The match was made official shortly after.
Ric Flair said that he enjoyed the match and it helped make the event special. He also praised Shawn Michaels for giving him an amazing match right before his retirement.
When they wrote this story on Bret Hart, they didn't know I was going to be there. So I go out there, and I cut a great promo, and then they roll video. Then they tell me they're replacing me with Bret Hart! I was pissed off. I mean, here I am, I've given them a great match, and now they're firing me! But, you know, it is what it is.
On December 10, 1972, he made his debut at Rice Lake, Wisconsin, drawing a 10-minute draw with George "Scrap Iron" Gadaski under the ring name Ric Flair. Flair wrestled Dusty Rhodes, Chris Taylor, Andre the Giant, Larry Hennig, and Wahoo McDaniel in the American Wrestling Association (AWA).
The next day he appeared on television for the first time as he went one-on-one with the world heavyweight champion Rocky Balboa in a match that aired on NBC's Saturday Night Live.
Balboa was played by Sylvester Stallone who also starred as the protagonist of the movie series. The role made Stallone an icon in America. Balboa lost to Flair but the fight is what people remember most from this episode. Around this time, Flair also had a wrestling tag team with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson called The Flairs. They were very successful in their time.
In April 1983, he joined the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) where he remained until January 1994 when he retired from in-ring competition due to neck problems. During his time in WWF, he was managed by Arn Anderson who later on became one of his best friends. Anderson helped him find work outside of wrestling while also acting as his trainer. In February 1994, he returned to the ring for one night only during WrestleMania XIV where he participated in a 20-man battle royal which was won by Shawn Michaels.
