If you feel like you're in a 20-man Battle Royale when it comes to your financial situation, maybe Ric Flair can help you out. Listen to the Nature Boy! Wooooooo!

He's not developed a Figure-4 process for webhosting yet, just financing. Wooooo!

Wow (sorry.. Woooooo!), fascinating. This basically seems like a templated front-end to some faceless loan corp. Makes me look forward to other celebrity-branded sites.

When I worked in the shadier end of search marketing (I know, I know, I got better!), we would frequently create pages with "unique brands" and messages aimed at those with credit problems. The applications all went to the same, fairly well-known provider, who would get in touch with them with one of their standard loans, but with a higher interest rate, longer payment periods, etc.

We didn't get to work with a 16-time world champion, though. Woooo!

I used to work out at the same Gold's Gym as Ric Flair (Charlotte, NC). He's a freaky lookin guy in person.

Also, Wooooo!

A friend of mine sat near Ric Flair at a basketball game once and watched him half-heartedly "Woooo!" for about 57 people. By the end it was more like "wuh."

To be the best ... you gotta beat the best (FICO score)! Wooooooo!

I've mentioned this before, I believe: I grew up in Charlotte, where Flair got his start. He lived in the same neighborhood as a buddy of mine, and we'd see him out in the yard every now and then. But, then again, I carpooled with the Super Destroyer's daughter, and was in 5th grade with Black Jack Mulligan's son, and Baron Von Raschke would come to our Junior High band concerts to see his daughter perform, so seeing Ric mowing the lawn wasn't a huge deal.

Sorry, I get all my financial advice from Bobby "The Brain" Heenan.

The irony being Flair's lending his name to this company 'cause he's pretty broke (it ain't cheap being a limousine ridin', jet flyin', nature boy).

I'd rather buy my financial services from this guy.

Well our British wrestlers are in adverts... even after they are DEAD!!! Woooooo!!!

(And how is Ric Flair still alive? He looked ancient even back when I was watching him... and it looks like he's about to blow a blood vessel in that clip.)

Like he's not freaky looking on my old 13" black&white tv ?

More truth than poetry that. I hear Flair is up to his neck in debt to the IRS and most recent ex-wife. Apparently that's why he still wrestles. Than again, who better to help you get deeper into debt than a man who is deep in debt himself? WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
