The “Nature Boy” Ric Flair is one of the most polarizing athletes in professional wrestling.

As one of the greatest wrestlers to ever live, Flair’s trademark stylish clothing choices, his ways with the ladies and his supreme ability to carry a match made him a popular choice among fans of all ages.

That’s why LeBron James thinks Flair created swag, according to the CBS Philly.

“When I was a kid, I loved wrestling,” James told the Associated Press. “He was one of the guys I loved, too. I think he’s one of the creators of what we call swag these days with the Rolexes and the stretch limos and all the girls and all that stuff. He’s one of the creators of swag.”

Did James just make “swag” cool again?
