Ric Flair not only had a hard time “holding these alligators down,” he had a hard time holding the tears back Friday.

“The Nature Boy,” as he was commonly known as during his days in the squared circle, was surprised with a 70th birthday celebration in Atlanta, with attendees ranging from: his daughter, WWE star Charlotte Flair; to former boxing heavyweight champ Evander Holyfield; wrestlers Triple H and Chris Jericho; former NBA stars Dennis Rodman and Charles Barkley; and Los Angeles Rams and former University of Georgia star running back Todd Gurley (Flair is a huge UGA fan).

The WWE legend turns 70 on Monday. He was scheduled to make an appearance on the upcoming episode of Monday Night Raw.

For those of you who may have forgotten, Flair was quite the showman in his day who was known for his flashy and braggadocious style.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
