Ric Flair is a lot of things to a lot of people. Most of all, he's one of the greatest of all time and the Nature Boy - whatever the hell that actually means.

Flair is also something else, he is absolutely crazy. The 67-year-old has proved that after a story was revealed from what the experienced pro wrestler got up to in the past few weeks during an interview.

According to a report from Wrestling Observer Newsletter, via Wrestling Inc, Flair has been sporting a fresh cut on his forehead in recent weeks. The reason is incredible.

30 for 30

Apparently, Flair has been filming with ESPN for a future 30-for-30, the company's award-winning documentary series that has covered some of the greatest athletes and most well-known sporting stories of all-time.

Seeing as the documentary will likely cover Flair's career inside the squared circle, Flair was asked about the practice of 'blading' - which is how wrestlers make themselves bleed using a razor blade during a match.

Flair is famous for his blading, willing to give himself a crimson mask in any situation whatsoever, even during the time Edge and Lita had their infamous romp on a bed in the middle of the ring during an episode of Monday Night RAW.

Blading Yet again

Rather than just tell the documentary crew about what blading involves, The Nature Boy apparently decided to show them, slicing his forehead open on camera to get some colour.

Ric Flair is so old-school that he blades when he doesn't need too! In the words of the ECW fanbase of the 90's, "he's hardcore!".

Whatever happens, this documentary is going to be fantastic, even if the footage of Flair blading does make it into the final broadcast. 

Flair is a 16-time World Heavyweight Champion, a major pay-per-view attraction throughout his career, the only two-time WWE Hall of Famer, and nine-time 'Wrestler of the Year' winner from the Wrestling Observer. 

He also survived a deadly plane crash, breaking his back in three places, and defied all medical opinion to make a return to wrestling within eight months of the crash.

What a man.
