Ric “The Nature Boy” Flair rang in his birthday in style on Friday night in Atlanta.

The wrestling legend’s wife, Wendy Barlow, put together a surprise party with 160 guests in celebration of Flair at The 1818 club.

“I am so overwhelmed by this whole night. Every one of my peers and my friend are all here to celebrate me,” Flair told PEOPLE. “I mean come on, I am so lucky. I am just so lucky. I am looking around the room in just complete awe. I never thought I would live to see this day. I am overcome with emotion.”

Nature Boy, what was his trademark, just going "Wooo!"?

He was an impeccable promo cutter who could play the nouveau riche angle as well as anyone. Yeah, there was probably some cocaine involved... and it caught up with him a couple years back.

There was a kid down my street who's dad took him to see wrestling every week. Then he'd show us all the new moves. We'd all practice the moves among us. I watched  wrestling some in the Coliseum in the early 80's. The promoter back then Paul Boesch, lived in my neighborhood.

Then my oldest son, who played football in middle school, was a varsity wrestler all 4 years in HS. He took wrestling since the football team was so sorry. He loved to throw the football players who tried out for wrestling after football season was over. They thought the solution to not get thrown down on the mat was to rush harder and faster next time, only to get thrown down, harder and faster.
He who makes an attempt to enslave me, thereby puts himself into a state of war with me.
