Panthers Steve Smith calls out Ric Flair on supporting the 49ers
Before Sunday’s Wild-Card game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers, the 49ers had a special guest to give them a pep talk before the game. WWE legend Ric Flair visited the team before the big game. The pep talked certainly helped as the 49ers were able to walk out of Lambeau with a win. Ric Flair said his heart is with the 49ers, which is rather odd considering he is a Charlotte, NC native which is home to San Francisco’s next opponent, the Carolina Panthers. Panthers WR Steve Smith and Flair have been friends both being legends in Charlotte and the entire state of North Carolina, but Smith’s words weren’t too friendly on Monday as The Charlotte Observer’s Tom Sorensen tweeted this: The 49ers travel to Charlotte on Sunday to take on the Panthers in the divisional round of the playoffs. It will be interesting to see who Flair will be pulling for, where his home is or where his heart is.
