A night before going up against Mother Nature in Green Bay, the San Francisco 49ers got a visit from the Nature Boy.

With the 49ers preparing to face the Packers in what could be one of the coldest games in NFL history, 64-year-old professional wrestling legend Ric Flair was a surprise guest during a meeting at the team's hotel in Appleton, Wis. The Nature Boy's visit quickly heated things up in Wisconsin by inspiring an inflammatory tweet from a 49ers player.

49ers offensive tackle Anthony Davis was so appreciative of Flair's visit that he opted to insult the Green Bay area on Twitter.


That remark understandably resulted in a social media backlash against the 24-year old from Piscataway, NJ. Davis engaged in some less-than-cordial banter with those on Twitter who disagreed and retweeted one person who seemed to share his opinion of the Green Bay area.

Several of Davis' teammates shared less controversial reactions to the visit.

49ers cornerback Daryl Morris shared a brief video clip of Flair greeting the team.
