It's official: When it comes to NHL general managers, Kyle Dubas is the most limousine-ridin', jet-flyin', Rolex-wearin', wheelin'-dealin', son of a gun around.

The Toronto Maple Leafs shared a picture of their GM with legendary wrestler Ric Flair on Sunday.

Flair was in Toronto for WWE SummerSlam, one of the pro wrestling loop's marquee events.

Dubas wore a blue SummerSlam T-shirt featuring the Maple Leafs logo. SummerSlam '19 was held at Scotiabank Arena, the team's home.

No word yet on if Dubas is getting a Flair-inspired robe like New Jersey Devils defenseman P.K.Subban.
