Professional wrestling legend Ric Flair recently confirmed the tragic story of his childhood abduction in 1949 during an interview with former NFL player Shannon Sharpe.

Flair revealed that he was stolen as a newborn and placed for adoption through the notorious Tennessee Children’s Home Society, which was involved in kidnapping and selling babies.

Despite the dark beginnings, Flair spoke warmly about his adoptive parents and the positive impact they had on his life. (Trending: US State Unveils Controversial ‘Gender Neutral’ Laws)

“Well, I only spent a month. I’m adopted,” Flair said of his time in Memphis.

“Is it true that you were stolen?” Sharpe asked.

“Stolen, yeah,” Flair said.

“Child traffickers?” Sharpe pressed.

“Yeah,” Flair said.

“My mother probably thought I was stillborn.”

“That’s what they told a lot of the girls whose kids ended up with the Tennessee Children’s Home Society in Memphis — their babies were dead, and they just needed to sign a couple of papers. Adoption papers.”

“Most of these girls were poor and uneducated. Some were even under sedation.

“They had pulled the same scam on single mothers, promising that their kids would be kept in a nice, safe place until the girls could come and get them. A corrupt judge had been in on the whole scheme, taking away infants from people on public assistance.”

“I’m gonna get emotional,” Flair said when asked of his adopted parents.

“Even though I didn’t do anything that is illegal or anything bad, I just feel like I was — I didn’t do them justice. Does that make sense?” Flair said.

“Cause they were such good people, but I was just — just wild,” he added.

Flair’s story sheds light on the long-standing issue of child trafficking and the enduring impact it has had on families.
