WWE Hall of Fame member 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair through the years

WWE Hall of Fame member "Nature Boy" Ric Flair now looks on as daughter Charlotte shines in her new WWE Diva role. Flair was inducted into the Hall in 2008, the night before his career ended at the hands of Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania XXIV. Flair is a 16-time world champion, and is the only two-time inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame -- once individually, and again as a member of the Four Horsemen in 2012. Here's a look at some pictures of the Nature Boy through the years.
