Wrestling fans have been left feeling a little concerned after watching Ric Flair advertise erectile dysfunction pills.
In a video shared on his social media accounts, the 73-year-old can be seen holding aloft a box of the drugs, exclaiming in a typical fashion: “This ain’t your grandfather’s boner pill! Woooooooo!” It’s very full on – and too much for a lot of people to handle.
The video has amassed thousands of views, but a lot of people wish they’d never seen it. One person commented: “Ric Flair pushing boner pills? Sad…not his last match sad, but sad.”
Another said: “Ric we know you dropped your dignity years ago, but pick it back up this is too much.” A third added: “Everything about this baffles me and doesn’t surprise me all at once.”
The website for the ‘boner pills’ encourages prospective customers to ‘put some Flair down there with Mt. Everest’, adding: “The Nature Boy is always at his peak with MT. Everest!
“Only MT. Everest offers a unique, 3-in-1 custom compounded medication, that can work in as little as 5 minutes.” Flair took part in his last ever wrestling match this summer, and many fans were concerned for his well-being as they watched on.
He was victorious in his retirement match inside Nashville Municipal Auditorium, defeating both Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal alongside Andrade El Idolo. However, it looked like it was a struggle.
Taking to Twitter, a fan wrote: “I am terrified for Ric Flair. For his legacy, but more importantly for his physical health.”
“No one is comfortable watching this, especially with Ric Flair’s condition,” a second commented. “And his health scares over the past couple of years.”
A third added: “Am I in the majority or minority, regarding ‘caring’ about Ric Flair’s ‘last match’ at like 70 years old? “I fear more about him having a heart attack or something worse considering his health.”
These fans were right to be worried, as Flair has since admitted that he passed out twice during the bout.
Speaking on the To be the Man Podcast Flair said: “I don’t think people realize that I passed out twice.
“What happened was, my regimentation for training was so strict that I kept my weight on. I wanted my perfect weight to be like 220lbs going in.
“So the last day and a half, aside from all the work that we had planned for me to do, I didn’t hydrate ’cause I had it in my mind that I had to weigh 219lbs.
“So anyway, I went to the ring at about 217lbs. What happened during the body of the match, I just became dehydrated.” He added: “I swear to God twice during the match, I went completely black.”
