First, because it’s for the Boys and Girls Club. They offer great social and athletic opportunities to young people and I’m happy to be helping them raise some money. Also, this is the first time in 20 years that the NWA and myself will be conducting business and I’m wanting to see the wrestling later that night,”  Flair said.

The Ric Flair/Boys and Girls Club benefit is a separate admission to the wrestling event later in the evening.
