WWE legend Ric Flair has been doing alright since leaving the ring, and even claims that he’s earned $700,000 (£582,000) through recording Cameo video messages for fans.
The ‘Nature Boy’ is one of the biggest names in professional wrestling, with a career that spanned decades and saw him claim multiple titles along the way.
Anyway, nowadays he apparently earns most of his dough not for chucking himself around in the ring - at 74-years-old he’s maybe a bit beyond that - but through recording personalised messages for fans via Cameo.
Charging $500 (£416) a pop, he’s obviously flogged a whole heap of them.
It’s good money if you can get it, but you’d presumably have to be a recognisable celebrity like Flair to be that popular.
On a recent podcast, Flair boasted about how much cash he’s taken out of Cameo videos, telling the To Be The Man wrestling show: “Listen, I made $700,000 doing Cameos.
“They’re just a minute long.
“That’s just talking for two minutes.
“That is 21 months.”
Wow, that is really not bad going.
Flair then confirmed the news by showing off his phone, which showed that he’s made the hearty sum of $669,000 (£556,000).
OK, it’s not quite $700,000 exactly but we’d be being churlish to suggest it ain’t big bucks.
Conrad Thompson, who hosts the show and is also Flair's son-in-law, then made a joke about how some people assumed that when Flair returned to the ring in 2022 he was doing it for the money.
Nope, he was doing it for the love.
The guy is totally fine for money.
That fight - by the way - was a tag-team match-up against Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett, two of his old foes from his fighting days.
Flair and his other son-in-law Andrade El Idolo picked up the win, though Flair caused a bit of controversy after passing out a few times in the ring, which he later put down to dehydration.
After people said that they were ‘disgusted’ by his performance, Flair hit back by once again boasting about how much cheddar he made by ‘disgusting’ them.
“I don’t pay any attention to that,” he said.
“You know what I say to that? I made $300,000 [£249,533]. Go f*** yourself.
“That’s right, I made $300,000 disgusting you.
“Disgust yourself for 300 grand, how about that motherf***ers.”
He definitely didn’t mince his words there.
Perhaps it’s that sort of honestly and candour that makes him so popular on Cameo?
