Ric Flair is a name almost as famous as wrestling itself with a storied career of epic wins and tragic losses. The winner of multiple championships Flair has maintained a high level presence throughout most of the modern history of professional wrestling. This in turn has ensured Flairs place in a variety of games since the beginning of games based upon professional wrestling.
Flair, whose real name is Richard Morgan Fliehr was born February 25 in Memphis, Tennessee. Flair began his professional wrestling career in Rice Lake, Wisconsin on December 10, 1972 facing George "Scrap Iron" Gadaski in a match that ended with a draw. From that American Wrestling Association match Flair progressed through the industry, at various times being associated with wrestling organizations such as not only the AWA, but the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), World Championship Wrestling (WCW), World Wrestling Federation (WWF), World Wrestling Entertainment and most recently Total Nonstop Action (TNA) wrestling.
The appearance of Ric Flair in gaming coincided with the advent of wrestling games based upon licenses of professional wrestling leagues. While games such as Match Pro Wrestling and MUSCLE had already served to represent wrestling in video gaming it wasn’t until 1987’s MicroLeague Wrestling, based upon the WWF, that games based upon popular industry franchises became available. However it wasn’t until 1994 when WCW SuperBrawl Wrestling was released that we finally see Flair make an appearance in a video game.
