The San Francisco 49ers had a little strut in their step heading into Sunday’s NFC wild card game against the Green Bay Packers thanks to some help from pro wrestling legend Ric Flair.

The stylin', profilin', limousine ridin’, jet flyin’, kiss-stealin’, wheelin' n' dealin' son of a gun showed off some of his moves and gave the Niners a pump-up speech Saturday with a few “Wooo!”s added for good measure.

It may have done the trick. The 49ers defeated the Packers 23-20 at frigid Lambeau Field with a last-minute drive that resulted in a field goal.

But their luck with Flair could end in Green Bay.

Although during the speech he said his “heart is with the 49ers,” Flair’s tune may change Sunday when the club faces his hometown Carolina Panthers.

The 49ers are two-point favourites heading into the divisional playoff game.
