BIO:   David Flair never intended to be a professional wrestler, growing up.  He saw how his father Ric was on the road for most of David's life growing up.  However, once David graduated from High School, he decided to move in with Ric Flair to attend school in becoming Highway State Patrolman.  Things changed in 1999 when David agreed to join WCW for an angle where David would join the New World Order in the face of Ric Flair who was feuding with the New World Order.  An incentive to join the nWo was that of Torrie Wilson, as this was Torrie's debut into pro wrestling and first love interest, storyline wise.  

David would continue feuding with his father once Vince Russo came to WCW, as Russo has a sick mind when it comes to meddling with family affairs.  Russo even wanted to do a storyline where he'd be revealed as David's real father, even though David looks strikingly like Ric.  Around this time, David Flair fell in love with Stacy Keibler and eventually moved in with her.  Russo and WCW decided to play up this real life relationship, even leading into a ridiculous wedding angle and a false Keibler pregnancy.  When WCW was purchased by the WWE in early 2001, David Flair's contract was purchased and he was immediately sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling for further training.

David Flair never got out of OVW, however.  His only real WWE airtime was during the 2002 angle between Ric Flair and the Undertaker where the Undertaker tried to play mind games with Ric by attacking David Flair at the OVW training facility.  After Wrestlemania 18, the WWE's profits started to drop off.  Heavy cuts were made in the WWE's farm system, as many former WCW wrestlers were let go.  David Flair was unfortunately let go.  Flair has since wrestled for NWA-TNA seeing more respect and more success than his brief farm tenure in the WWE, even claiming the tag titles on one occasion.  David Flair tours various independent feds in addition to wrestling for NWA-TNA.
