He’s the kiss stealing, wheeling dealing, jet flying, limousine riding son of a gun, Whooooo! He is of course “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair. Flair’s legendary career spans over 30 years, which includes 16 World Championships and of course the creation of the Legendary Four Horsemen along with Tully Blanchard, Ole and Arn Anderson. Ric will be remembered by some of his older fans for his feuds with such legends as Dusty Rhodes, Ricky Steamboat and Sting. Flair was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame 2008 the night before he faced Shawn Michaels in an emotional match at WrestleMania 24 which ended up being his last match due to Vince McMahon's stipulation that if he lost he must retire.


WWE SmackDown!: Shut Your Mouth

Flair making his debut in Shut Your Mouth

Ric Flair debuts in the SmackDown! series as a Co-Chairman for the RAW brand, keeping in line with the 2002 storyline that the game follows. Due to his importance in season mode, he is unavailable for use in the mode. He partakes in many storylines, especially towards the beginning of Season Mode. If you happen to select the RAW Brand at the draft near the start of the game, Ric Flair will be your supervisor in the V.I.P. Room. It is he who will grant you title shots and give you an evaluation based on your superstar points.

Flair is playable in Exhibition, where he has three attires, two of them being the red and blue variants of his usual ring underwear, his entrance's coats will match the underwear's color. The third is him in the suit that he uses in Season. His finisher is of course, the Figure Four.

WWE SmackDown!: Here Comes The Pain

Ric Flair is now no longer General Manager having been replaced by Eric Bischoff. Due to this, it is now possible to play as Flair in season mode. Flair starts off on the RAW Brand as a heel and is part of the Evolution stable with Batista, Randy Orton, and Triple H. He uses The Evolution Theme song during his entrance.

Ric Flair did not record voiceovers, so he is not able to be used in season mode. He is seen in various angles in the mode, a notable one where he is attacked by Big Show and chokeslammed out of the ring. However, he remains mute the entire time with Triple H acting as his mouthpiece and only a very faint "woo" being heard.

SmackDown! vs RAW 2007™

Flair's entrance in SmackDown! vs RAW 2007
Flair’s move-set consists of an old school wrestling style with a lot of basic, but effective maneuvers. There are many different styles of back chops through out Ric’s move-set, there’s one in the old school grapple, one in the turnbuckle grapple and one in the ground grapple.

With a Submission attribute at 9.5 there’s no doubt Flair’s Figure-Four Leglock is your biggest advantage and to set your opponent up for it you should focus on the ground grapples in Flair’s arsenal, such as The Leglock (flick the right analogue stick left when at the feet of your opponent), The Stomping Combo (flick the right analogue up) and The Ric Flair Stomp (flick the right analogue right) all of these are great attacks for weakening the legs of your opponent.

Flair’s best match would have to be a Submission Match due to his high Submission and Technique attributes, also be sure raise your momentum faster by taking advantage of his high Charisma by taunting your opponent when he’s down. His main weaknesses are his low Strength, Speed and Stamina, which could give you a big disadvantage in Ladder and Cage matches.

The only SmackDown! vs RAW 2007 Season Mode storyline in which he is involved in is "A traitor of SmackDown?" which ends at Surviver Series.
