Ric Flair, also recognised as “the stylin’, profilin’, limousine-riding, jet-traveling, kiss-thieving, wheelin’ and dealin’ son of a gun,” will be the grand marshal at this weekend’s 2023 Seminole Challenging Rock Gasparilla Pirate Fest.

Gasparilla parade organizers created the announcement Monday early morning, introducing that the 16-time expert wrestling heavyweight champion and two-time WWE Corridor of Famer will be joined by Sgt. Important Matt Parrish, a Green Beret who finished multiple tours in Iraq, Afghanistan and Central and South America.

On Saturday, Jan. 28, starting at 2 p.m., The Character Boy and Parrish will guide extra than 95 parade floats, 50 krewes, and seven marching bands through the 4-and-a-50 percent-mile parade route together Tampa’s Bayshore Boulevard.

The Tampa resident, whose serious identify is Richard Morgan Fliehr, is stylin’ and profilin’ these days. Final 7 days, ESPN released Mother nature Boy, a documentary on Flair’s lifetime, as the most recent installment of its prestigious 30 by 30 series, and in December, Woooooo! Starting to be Ric Flair was unveiled on Peacock.
