RIC 'THE NATURE BOY' FLAIR TO VISIT TAYLOR SATURDAY, AUGUST 2

"WOOOOOO ..." it's Ric Flair!

Taylor is a big-time wrestling city is there ever was one. So Saturday, August 2 should be marked in red on everyone's calendar.

That's the evening that Ric Flair, the old Nature Boy himself, visits town during the Big League Brew's Birthday Bash Summer. BLB's is located at 20428 Ecorse Road.

Now 65 years young, Flair is one of the most decorated professional wrestlers in history. The flashy 6-1, 243-pounder was a 16-time professional heavyweight champion whose feature move was figure-four leg lock. Flair was one of wrestling's biggest draws since the 1970s, thanks to a style that was half-athlete and half-showman. He made his name was one of the dirtiest wrestlers in the game, as well as one of the cockiest. He's known for his cocky interviews, strutting and naturally the "woooooo" shout. He became such a popular name that "Ric Flair" turns 4 million hits in under two seconds.

Flair's body was insured by Lloyd's of London and his autobiography, "To Be The Man," was a New York Times' best seller.

According to staffers at Big League Brew's, Ric Flair will be signing autographs during the day and evening and then has agreed to "hang out" with the patrons. The exact times of Flair's appearance are still "to be announced," but if you are there on the evening of August 2, you're likely to see him up close and personal.

Also on hand at BLB that night will be Detroit's own Ty Stone, who recently played the Taylor Summer Festival; Half Light Music; DJ Klassy Zack; and 101 WRIF-FM.
