Pics: Wooo! The 49ers got wrestling legend Ric Flair in to give them a pep talk
Already favourites ahead of tonight's game with Green Bay, surely they can't lose after Nature Boy had a word.
NFL teams are always looking for ways to get that little bit extra ahead of big games. Everyone from former players to political figures have been roped in in the past to try and fire up a roster but calling on a WWE legend is a new one on us.
Ahead of their massive game against the Green Bay Packers tonight, the San Francisco 49ers organised for Ric Flair - yes THE Ric Flair - to visit the team. We don't exactly know what the great man said to the 49ers, but based on the social media activity of some of their squad, they were all pretty pumped. We have to say we can't blame them.

The 49ers are currently 2.5 point favourites but with the wise words, and 'wooos' of Flair ringing in their ears, surely they will demolish Aaron Rodgers' boys tonight.
