Flair's daughter, WWE star Charlotte Flair, was present at the ceremony, along with her colleague Dolph Ziggler, who accompanied the bride down the hall, and the wrestling legend of the old school The Undertaker.

"6 years ago we reconnected and my world has been an adventure ever since," shared Barlow on Instagram on August 25. "I love this man and our life that we have built together." Happy anniversary. & # 39;

They have history: the happy couple had been dating for six years, but they have known each other for about 25 years.
This is the fifth time that the 69-year-old man has knotted himself.
He has four children, who are now all grown adults, with two of his former spouses.
Flair's new marriage takes place about a year after he had a major health problem that left him near death and with life support for 10 days.
"What I remember is that I could not talk, but I could hear people talking about me," he revealed in an interview with ESPN as reported by USA Nowadays. "My daughters told me that the doctor told him to come in and say goodbye to his dad, that he would not make it."
The so-called "Nature Boy" attributed his sudden medical emergency, which included intestinal problems and kidney failure, to his long battle against alcoholism.
Flair is a two-time wrestler in the WWE Hall of Fame: once as a soloist and once with The Four Horsemen.
