From Quiz "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair

Answer: Melina

The war of words between Ric Flair and Mick Foley goes way back to the early 1990s when Foley had his first stint as Cactus Jack in WCW. Flair often regarded the out of shape Foley as nothing more than a "glorified stuntman" who couldn't wrestle to save his life. On the other hand Foley has constantly berated Flair as being an ego maniac who refused to share the limelight and did not know when to hang it up and let a new generation have a turn. On August 20, 2006 at "Summerslam'06" the two clashed in Foley's style of match: "An I Quit Match". This one has to be seen to be believed as both men literally beat the other to a bloody pulp with Flair winning.

20. Ric Flair won his last major singles title in 2005, winning the WWE Intercontinental Championship from a second-generation star. From whom did Flair take the Intercontinental strap?

From Quiz Ric Flair: The Classic Opponents

Carlito's trademark of spitting a chewed-up apple into the face of his foe backfired in this match, with Flair chopping the younger man in mid-expectoration. While Carlito choked, Flair applied his trademark "Figure-Four Leglock" and got the submission victory. Carlito is the son of Carlos Colon, the preeminent Carribean wrestler of the 1970s and 1980s. Colon defeated Flair in 1983 while Flair held the NWA World Heavyweight Championship, thus "unifying" the Puerto Rico-based Universal Heavyweight Championship; this loss is not generally recognized in the United States. During this series, Flair became so scared of the violent Puerto Rico crowds that he enlisted friend Roddy Piper as a bodyguard of sorts. Of course, Piper proceeded to work the crowd up even more, and the two mainlanders barely escaped major injury.

From Quiz Ric Flair - The Nature Boy
