Ric Flair was the latest guest on the Steve Austin Show and within the podcast, the Nature Boy admitted that he still drinks alcohol.
The news will come as a surprise to many fans as he had previously claimed he was going to stop drinking as doctors had advised him to stop drinking totally after his serious health issues last August that almost saw him lose his life.
However, the two-time WWE Hall Of Famer admitted he still does drink alcohol, though nowhere near as much as he once did and never hard liquor.
“I’m gonna be completely honest with you. I’ve asked the doctor ten different times and of course I’ll ask other doctors because I refuse to believe – at my wedding I had three glasses of champagne.
“At my daughter’s wedding I had the same or maybe one glass of wine with the champagne and while I was in Florida with Wendy, this past week, we were there for Thanksgiving, I drank about four beers, so it’s not the alcohol that’s gonna hurt me.
“It’s that the doctors are afraid that if I have one, that will lead to another, but I have had a drink, so alcohol is not gonna kill me. I’ve never had any hard liquor and that won’t happen, but I have had probably ten or twelve beverages with alcohol in them; beer, wine, or champagne.”
