Just one day before the San Francisco 49ers were scheduled to play the Green Bay Packers in the Wildcard Round of the NFL Playoffs at Lambeau Field in Wisconsin, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair paid a visit to the boys in gold and white for a surprise pep talk.

Video of Flair's arrival at the 49ers team meeting, complete with entrance music:
49ers.com posted an entire article with various players posing for pictures with Flair, who is still over as hell everywhere he goes. It's definitely worth checking out.
What's really great about this is the fact that the New Orleans Saints defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 26-24 in their game last night. That means if the 49ers, inspired by Flair, are victorious against the Packers, they will travel to Carolina to take on the Panthers in the Divisional Round.
Yes, Flair Country.
WWE is surely happy with all this if only because Flair's surprise drop in has garnered plenty of mainstream coverage just one night before Monday Night Raw goes "Old School" in Baltimore, an event "The Nature Boy" is also scheduled to be a part of.
