A wrestling legend will be in the Forest City this fall.

London Comic Con announced Monday that Nature Boy Ric Flair has been added to this fall’s lineup.

Flair is one of the most decorated wrestlers, having won a total of 31 major championships between the NWA, WCW, and WWF/WWE. Flair was the first wrestler to complete the triple crown in WCW and did the same in the WWE.

The triple crown is when a wrestler wins the world championship, a secondary single’s championship and a tag team championship.

“Flair is the ultimate crowd pleaser for wrestling fans of all generations and it’s a rare occasion for fans to be able to meet him in London,” said Andrew Kitt, president of London Comic Con.
