The Nature Boy Has Only Begun Fucking WIth The Sports Putz’ Head

Mere weeks after Ric Flair’s attorney made some flimsy rhetorical gestures in the direction of Bill Simmons’ Grantland over the latter’s exhaustive detailing of the legendary grappler’s legal and financial woes, it would seem Flair has exacted some small measure of psychic revenge. NESN.com’s Tony Lee reports the 16-time world champion paid a surprise visit to the Red Sox clubhouse earlier today, sadly missing out on an opportunity to take advice from J.D. Drew on how to best sell an injury.

Dustin Pedroia, who teamed with Josh Reddick to purchase an autographed Flair robe that has hung above Pedroia’s locker for months, was given an authentic championship belt from the champ. Many of the players came over to lift it, commenting on the incredible weight of the thing, unlike the light toy model that also hung over Pedroia’s locker.

After Flair took photos with Pedroia and Reddick, he called Terry Francona “coach” and then departed with a trademark “Wooooooo,” leaving behind a group of grown men giggling like little boys.

“We had no clue,” Reddick said. “We were both just sitting there and we turned around and there he was in the flesh.”

Reddick and Pedroia bought the robe, one that Flair used to wear during his signature entrances, through an eBay auction earlier in the year. It is red and says “Nature Boy,” Flair’s nickname, on the back.

    That JD Drew line is great. Thanks. First thing that’s made me laugh in a week. Been a bad week.
