Ric Flair speaks on a panel.

Ric Flair is scheduled to star in an ESPN 30 for 30documentary in November about his incredible career as a professional wrestler. It should provide some insight into how he was able to transform himself into one of the most popular WWE wrestlers of all time. It should also shed light on how Flair conducted himself in his personal life and how he ended up dealing with a bunch of serious health issues during his later years due to his heavy drinking and outlandish lifestyle.

One of the crazier claims that Flair makes in the documentary involves him revealing the number of women he has slept with throughout his life. According to TMZ Sports, Flair talks about how he has been with approximately 10,000 women. It’s a shocking number when you sit down and do the math—TMZ Sports did it and found that the 68-year-old Flair would have had to sleep with almost four women per week starting at the age of 15 to hit 10,000—and it further advances the legend of Flair.

TMZ also caught up with porn legend Ron Jeremy, a man literally paid to have sex with women who still hasn't come anywhere close to Flair's lofty figure, and Jeremy expressed some serious doubt on the Nature Boy's claim. "I think he’s lying," Jeremy said. "It’s very difficult to get numbers like that."

Whether or not it's true, at this point in his life, Flair isn’t proud of putting up such a high number. In fact, during an interview with People this week, he admitted that he’s actually embarrassed about it, and he wishes he hadn’t talked about his sexual conquests during his 30 for 30 interviews.

"What I said was the truth, but I feel bad now that I said some of it," he told People. "Ten thousand women. I wish I hadn’t said that because of my grandkids."

Flair also said that he’s a one-woman man now. He’s engaged to his longtime girlfriend Wendy Barlow and is no longer interested in sleeping with anyone else.

"I only love one [woman] now," he said. "I have never done anything since I met Wendy."

Flair is currently still recovering from a recent health scare caused by alcoholism. He has vowed to never drink again. If you haven’t seen the trailer for his 30 for 30 doc yet, you can watch it below.
