During an interview with People Magazine, he told that he gave it to security at the hotel and they put it behind the desk in the lock room. He revealed that they came to pick it up but it was not there.

Ric Flair said: “They came in the morning to pick it up and leave for the airport and to have it not be there – back then, that was just the infancy of cell phones, and I’m taking off for another city. I never saw it again.”

Ric Flair will be featured in an edition of “Most Wanted Treasures” on A&E and will team up with his daughter, WWE’s Charlotte Flair. The Queen said she could recall the problems Ric had with the robes and often had the concern that it was going to get stolen through baggage claim or at the shows.

Ric admitted that he did not choose to display his own memorabilia around the house. He said: “I’ve never had a shrine built to myself, or – what am I trying to say – have a room built.”

The WWE Hall of Famer said that he had built his children trophy cases rather than displaying his own memorabilia. He then lauded his children and called them phenomenal athletes.

Ric Flair will go down in the history of pro-wrestling as one of the greatest stars. He is also won the WWE Championship for a record 16-times which was equaled by John Cena recently. We will have to see if Ric Flair is successful in finding the robe he lost.
