I was certainly unprepared for how weird this news would be.
PWInsider (pwinsider.com) reports that, following in the footsteps of Mick Foley, Ric Flair and Roddy Piper are appearing on Celebrity Wife Swap. Swapping with each other. It gets even weirder. Apparently, Ric isn't swapping any of his current or ex-wives. He's swapping his current girlfriend. Who happens to be Fifi, his A Flair For The Gold valet from 1993.
Here's a pic (sportsandwrestling.mywowbb.com) of Ric and Fifi, made even better by Carlos Colon sleeping in the background.
There is no way Flair wasn't plowing Fifi back in '93. (I use this vernacular because Flair once screamed, "Shut up, fat boy! I plowed your wife back in '85!" at a TD Garden house show.)
My friend brought up an interesting point: Piper and Flair swapping wives isn't that big a deal. For the wives, it wouldn't be an extraordinarily different circumstance to trade one 1980s wrestler for another.
To which I replied with the following upsides. 1) It would finally allow each wife to hear the opposing side of their classic dog collar match. 2) The wives would understand the full breadth of their WCW administration when Flair was President and Piper was RPVP.
Originally posted by It's FalseFlair is just NOW getting around to banging Fifi? He must have been going through little black book or something.

no more than today. I think I saw the same move recently - maybe in TNA. Nah, Ric bladed and Roddy pretended to bite him. Of course, with those guys, who knows? Supposedly real good pals at that time anyway.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

I can only speak for myself, but I think the best wrestling angles are based on reality. At the very least, they have to be believable. Otherwise, why are we watching, if we can't be immersed in the story?
