Ric Flair got in a lot of hot water over the Dark Side of the Ring mid-season return. The Plane Ride From Hell episode revealed that Ric Flair exposed himself to a flight attendant and then forced her to touch it. Now fans are calling for AEW to never bring in the two-time WWE Hall of Famer.
That Plane Ride From Hell episode included many damning stories. Brock Lesnar was the subject of controversy over exposing himself to Terri Runnels. Ric Flair got the worst look out of anyone, by far.
WWE took action and they have removed a Story Time video that included a story about Ric Flair’s misbehavior. This video included a portion where they made light of Flair flashing flight attendants in cartoon form.
People are calling for Ric Flair to be cancelled over the story that was revealed in Dark Side of the Ring. His CarShield commercials were also paused. Tommy Dreamer was suspended from Impact Wrestling over his comments as well, because he seemed to excuse Flair’s behavior.
We’ll have to see what’s next for Ric Flair, but a number of fans are calling for his career to be over at this point. A public apology might be needed, but it’s unclear what he can say at this point after that twenty-year-old story blew the roof off the internet wrestling community.
