Ric Flair’s Mammoth Cameo Earnings Revealed

Ric Flair

Ric Flair is one of the most recognizable names to come out of the world of professional wrestling. A two-time WWE Hall of Famer and sixteen-time World Champion, Flair has made his presence known worldwide as one of the best to master the art of the interview, and that fame has now translated to great monetary success outside of the wrestling ring.

Flair is one of the numerous celebrities who participates on the popular social site Cameo, which allows fans to buy custom video messages or interactions with their favorite stars. Costs of these videos vary by celebrity, and Flair has the following offerings:

  • Personalized video: $500
  • Business video: $10,000
  • Live video call: $1,500

Now, speaking on a recent episode of his To Be the Man podcast, Flair revealed that his Cameo presence has led to financial success. Speaking about his promo skills to co-host Conrad Thompson, he revealed that his silver tongue has earned him plenty in less than two years.

“Listen, I made $700,000 doing Cameos. They’re just a minute long [laughs]. That’s just talking for two minutes. That is 21 months.” (h/t Fightful)

Continuing, he showed Thompson his phone, revealing his total earnings to be $669,000. The two men also joked about fans claiming that the WWE Hall of Famer participated in Ric Flair’s Last Match because he needed the money.

Ric Flair Recently Criticized Wrestlers Who Are Better On Social Media Than In The Ring

Despite finding great success on Cameo, Ric Flair recently took to task performers who are more popular due to their social media presence than their in-ring presentation. Speaking to Booker T on the Hall of Fame podcast back in January,

“There are more kids right now making money because of their social media than their talent. It’s absolute insanity. I mean, social media can make or break anybody, and they got kids now making millions of dollars that couldn’t even walk in the goddamn ring with me and Book. I swear to God, they couldn’t wrestle 30 minutes if they had too, much less, you know, do it every day. Does that make sense? Not every other day, every day.” (h/t WrestlingNews.co)
