Top 10 Wrestlers Who Went From Rags to Riches

8. Ric Flair

Ric Flair enjoyed every moment of his gimmick, especially since he had a tough upbringing. Flair was raised in the Tennessee Children’s Home Society, an orphanage that proved to be one filled with kidnapping scandals. Flair himself admits he went through a lot at the orphanage.

Eventually he was adopted by Richard and Kathleen Fleihr and needless to say, it turned his life around. Flair would enjoy a long career in the wrestling business, becoming the stylin’ and profilin’ man you grew to love.
