Ric Flair’s name trended on social media thanks to Dark Side of the Ring’s season 3’s mid-season premiere. The Plane Ride From Hell is now a popular subject of conversation once again. Fans are calling for AEW to never sign the Nature Boy, and now he might have lost an endorsement.
The Nature Boy appears in commercials if they can match his high asking price. No matter how much it might have cost them, one sponsor decided against running ads with the now-controversial pro wrestling legend.
CarShield commercials are in heavy rotation, and Ric Flair is front and center. PW Insider dropped a statement from the company and they are pulling Flair’s ads.
“We take these matters very seriously. As of right now, we are pausing the campaign and we will do our due diligence.”
Those CarShield commercials also feature LA Knight, likely filming prior to his WWE debut, but it is still interesting to note. We’ll have to see if Car Shield brings the commercials back, but they didn’t want Flair representing their company at this time.
