Flair, 68, styled and profiled in South Florida a couple of weeks ago. He served as the guest of honor for Wrestling Night at Marlins Park on Friday, July 28 as the Miami Marlins hosted the Cincinnati Reds. During that weekend, he also was one of the pro wrestling guests for Florida Supercon at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale. He was in good spirits at both places.
Accompanied by former WCW star Fifi at each event, he signed autographs, posed for photos and threw out the first pitch at the Marlins game.
At Florida Supercon, he signed autographs, posed for photos and conducted a Q&A. He put smiles on a lot of faces of fans of all ages at both events. Some even walked by and blurted, ‘Woooooo,’ in honor of his presence.
Flair noted he was returning to South Florida to guest host the ESPN TV show “Highly Questionable” with Dan Le Batard. The show is broadcast from The Clevelander on South Beach in Miami.
Coincidentally, WWE was in Tampa on Saturday, Aug. 12 and Miami on Sunday, Aug. 13 with a SmackDown house show (no TV). Flair’s daughter, Charlotte, is a top superstar on the SmackDown roster. Flair was looking forward to guest hosting “Highly Questionable” around that time and seeing his daughter at the SmackDown show at the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami.
Charlotte was not on the card on Saturday or Sunday. Each show had a 4-on-3 women’s tag match with WWE SmackDown women’s champ Naomi, Becky Lynch and NXT’s Liv Morgan against Natalya, Tamina, Lana and Carmella (with James Ellsworth).
