When two legends meet it's always a special moment. When WWE legends Ric Flair and Dwayne Johnson recently met up, it was no different.

The 'Nature Boy', Flair, was the legend of wresting from the 70s and 80s - and to be fair, he never really left the ring, and has always been in and around the sport.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson followed on from Flair, and although he's since moved onto life outside the arena, the multiple-time champion will mean he's a lifelong hero for wrestling.

When the two originally met, Rick had long white-blond hair, perm style, while Johnson had actual hair and wore a classic white suit.

How do we know that? Well, because Flair posted a tweet of the pair showing exactly that. In it Johnson points with one hand to 'Nature Boy' while the other hand points for the number one. Rock knowing well and truly that Flair is a true hero.

But in a split-picture, Flair has posted a recent picture of the two of them. A much taller, and more built, Johnson stands with arm around legend Flair.

It's a brilliant picture of the two of them, and although neither maybe looks as youthful as they once did, it doesn't matter! Many, on Twitter, were loving it...



As mentioned, Flair has never left the ring, helping to promote it and manage wrestlers too. However, earlier this year he proved to us that he could probably still take on the 'The Rock' in a glory match.

There's a documentary coming out, later this year, rewinding the years and showing us his life and career.

As a tease to that, Flair posted a video in which he's dead-lifting 400lbs - that's 181kg!

The video was posted to Twitter with the caption: 'I.Will.Never.Retire'.

On the other hand, it looks like Johnson's next fight could be one against Donald Trump - that's if the ex-Wrestler-turned-film-star goes ahead with his plan to run in the 2020 presidential race.
