The Ric Flair 49ers pep talk video has finally emerged online as WWE and NFL fans can finally get a look at what "The Nature Boy" said to "woo" San Francisco before the NFC Wild Card game. The 49ers were scheduled for a NFL playoff game on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers at freezing Lambeau Field, but could Ric Flair help warm them up before the big game?

According to a Jan. 5 Bleacher Report update, new photos and video of Flair's visit to the 49ers' locker room emerged online Sunday. The new YouTube video was posted by WWE on their YouTube channel and features four minutes of Flair. The intro shows Flair entering a room to his well-known theme music as he gets a standing ovation and plenty of "woo's" from the 49ers players. He also has a handshake with Niners QB Colin Kaepernick before starting off his speech with "The San Francisco 49ers and The Nature Boy, in the same town at one time. Not good."

Flair speaks about how honored he is to speak to the team after "The Cowboy" put in a special request to have Ric Flair come talk to them. He reminded them how much he hated the Cowboys and loved the 49ers. Flair brought up meeting Joe Montana and Jerry Rice, before noting that once they defeat the Packers they'd be headed to his own hometown of Carolina. Flair said "I know Cam won't be happy about that." Flair told them "You've got a hell of a team and a great coach," before saying "Ric Flair's heart is with the 49ers all the way to the end. Wooo!"

The appearance also produced quite a few candid photos popping up online as various players posted for photos with Flair and then posted them to their social media accounts. According to FOX Sports, Anthony Davis was pretty fired up by the pep talk as he tweeted out some derogatory language towards the team's current location, saying:

"Nature Boy Ric Flair flew into this s---hole to show us some love."

The San Francisco 49ers were leading the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field in the third quarter 13-10 as of this report. As for Ric Flair, he's scheduled next to appear on WWE's "Old School Raw" which will be aired live on the USA channel Monday night beginning at 8 p.m. EST. Other legends are set to appear along with Flair, but it's hard to beat the status of "The Nature Boy" no matter where he shows up.
