Ric Flair’s NFTs are Ready to Rumble

The Nature Boy is collaborating with the Rumblin’ Rooster Fight Club NFT community for a limited mint of WOOO-tastic collectibles.

To help close out 2021 in style, The Nature Boy is diving head first into NFTs. Legendary pro wrestler Ric Flair has announced a partnership with the Rumblin’ Roosters Fight Club NFT community for a set of 1,000 unique Nature Boy Roosters that will be minting in the days to come.

At that point, it will be time to rumble.

Naturally, The Naitch was excited to share the news.

This is all part of a new chapter for Flair, who requested and was granted a release from his contract with the WWE in August. As he said on Renee Paquette’s “Oral Sessions” podcast, “there was no animosity whatsoever. It was just business. I wanted to try something and they just had a different vision [WWE wanted me] to just get paid, basically. A lot of money. Nothing was wrong with that.”

Right on cue, the WWE inked a multi-year deal with Fox Entertainment’s Blockchain Creative Labs to launch an NFT marketplace for licensed digital WWE tokens and collectibles.

With this latest news from RRFC, Flair won’t have to miss out on the non-fungible token action.
