A surprise 70th birthday party was held for Ric Flair Friday night in Atlanta, Georgia.

Flair turns 70 this coming Monday, February 25th. WWE is advertising a big birthday celebration for the 16-time world champion on Raw. However, the festivities are underway a few days early.

LA Times columnist Arash Markazi was on hand for the surprise party and provided some details of what’s going on inside. The guest list includes Triple H, Shane McMahon, Chris Jericho, Ricky Steamboat, Charles Barkley, Evander Holyfield, Dennis Rodman and many more.

Championship belts were on display (big gold and the winged eagle), as were Flair action figures and one of his signature pink robes. They even showed a Flair vs. Steamboat match, officially making this one of the coolest parties ever.

Ric Flair took to Twitter on Saturday morning to speak about the party. He thanked his wife Wendy for arranging it and wrote, “I am so overcome with emotion! Last night ws truly a night I will never forget! Thank you!!!”
