San Francisco faces the Green Bay Packers in the first round of the playoffs Sunday afternoon, and Flair was the latest in a long list of celebrity guests in professional and college locker rooms trying to motivate the team before its big game.
Ian Rapoport reported Flair had quite the entrance, as the team added the wrestling legend's intro music at the end of their highlight film, with Flair entering as the music played. A "team source," apparently unwilling to go on the record when talking about a celebrity locker room appearance, told Rapoport, "If you have to go against Mother Nature, got to bring in the Nature Boy."
The "Mother Nature" in question is the weather San Francisco will have to face when playing in Wisconsin, where record-low temperatures are expected. Starting offensive tackle Anthony Davis made his feelings on the subject known.
