Ric Flair is the definition of a legend in the wrestling business.

Alongside names like Hulk Hogan and Bret Hart, Flair is revered as one of the biggest stars and greatest performers the industry has ever seen.

He is also credited as a 16-time world champion, a record within professional wrestling, with the top companies certainly.

But for every accolade and memorable moment Flair gave us down the years, the man himself has managed to point out a couple of stinkers, too.

In fact, on his podcast 'The Ric Flair Show" (imaginative, we know), The Nature Boy detailed which WWE Hall of Famer gave him the two worst matches of his entire 40-odd year career.

It turns out the Ultimate Warrior - hardly famed as an in-ring technician - gets the undesirable honour.

"I'm wrestling the Warrior in Winnipeg [Canada], right? I'm the champion. And the match, Mike, probably, the second worst match I ever had in my life. The first being when I wrestled The Warrior in Phoenix [Arizona] and he dropped me on my head. Okay? So I come back from the ring. I knew the match just was absolutely brutal. And Pat Patterson goes to me, 'that was the worst f--king match I've ever seen in my life'. And I said, 'you're telling me, motherf****? I was in it!'"

Flair continued, "it was absolutely terrible. I just couldn't have a match with him. It was like wrestling Jimmy Valiant. When the music stopped, the match was over."

Flair went on to say that the injuries he suffered from Warrior prevented him from having the stellar matches many anticipated when he dropped the then-WWF title to Bret Hart in 1992.
