Ric Flair loves the Wolverines, but he respects their rivalry.
The famous wrestler attended Game 3 of the NBA Finals in Cleveland on Wednesday night. So did Urban Meyer. Flair and Meyer got the chance to meet and get a picture.
While The Nature Boy roots against the Buckeyes on Saturdays in the fall, he said he has “nothing but respect” for the Ohio State coach.

Flair has a history of mocking the Buckeyes, but he has shown some respect in recent years.
"For years I would come out here and crack on the Buckeyes and I can't even do that anymore. You're the national champions" – Ric Flair

But he’s true to the maize and blue.
