Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton. Jill Stein. Gary Johnson. None of these candidates for president got Ric Flair’s vote.
No, Ric Flair voted for, obviously, Ric Flair.
That’s right, in his attempt to Make America WOOOOO Again, the Nature Boy cast a ballot for himself (along with running mate Waka Flocka Flame).

While taking a photo of your ballot is strictly forbidden in North Carolina (where Flair presumably voted), the threat of a figure-four leg lock garners any election official a pass, particularly in a case where said photographer is a 16-time world champion wrestler.
Flair and Waka Flocka Flame announced their candidacy on Oct. 18, with Flame originally wanting to head the ticket. However, Flame at just 30 years old is too young to be elected president, and being a strict constitutionalist, he ceded top-tier status to Flair.
If you are not familiar with the Flair-Flame platform, here is a brief campaign video:

Ballots are still being counted, but according to Flair, he and Flame held a “commanding lead” heading into Nov. 7.
