WWE Hall of Famer "Nature Boy" Ric Flair gave an inspirational speech to the San Francisco 49ers prior to their NFL Playoff game yesterday against the Green Bay Packers. The speech was captured on film by WWE and was quickly posted on Sunday night via their website and popular Youtube channel. The video quickly went viral and already has over 150,000 plays.

The speech surely inspired the 49ers who appeared in the video to take in Flair's styling and profiling with fanboy glee. The 49ers upset the Packers with a 23 to 20 victory, eliminating the Packers from the playoffs in Green Bay in below zero weather.

According to Wrestling Observer editor Dave Meltzer, the epic speech was arranged by WWE executives and the front office of the 49ers who announced late last year that WWE's grandest show, Wrestlemania will be coming to the team's new stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Flair is appearing with many other WWE legends tonight on an "Old School" edition of WWE RAW live on the USA Network starting at 7pm CST / 8pm EST.
