After first meeting in WCW and reconnecting years later, Ric Flair married Wendy Barlow in 2018. After over three years of marriage, Flair announced today that the two are going their separate ways. Flair wrote the following on Twitter…

“After Taking Some Time Apart, Wendy And I Have Decided To Go Our Separate Ways. Please Respect Our Privacy & Our Families During This Time! I Will Love & Cherish All Of Our Memories Together Forever, And I Will Forever Be Thankful For All She Has Done To Make My Life Better!”

“This Is An Opportunity For Wendy Who Spent Four Years Taking Care Of Me Every Day During My Period Of Illness. She Deserves Every Minute Of The Rest Of Her Life To Be Who She Is- Lovely, Kind Hearted, Intelligent; And Not Have To Take Care Of Me! FYI- Traveling Around The Country With Me Is Not An Easy Job! Thank You Wendy For All You Have Done! The Door Is Never Closed! Please Respect Who She Is & Who I Am.”

It was Flair’s 5th time being married. Barlow was known to wrestling fans as “Fifi the Maid” in WCW.
