A pro wrestling fan is the first winner of North Carolina’s new $100,000 scratch-off lottery game featuring WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, according to Greensboro, North Carolina’s News-Record.com.

Frankie Shirley visited the Tobacco Shop on in Asheboro, NC this week and saw the new “Wooooooooo!” instant scratch-off game. As a long time fan of the Nature Boy, he decided to give it a shot and hit the $100,000 top prize.

Shirley told the N.C. Education Lottery he read the ticket about 10 times to make sure it was real.
