Vice’s Dark Side of the Ring aired the second part of their third season which included an episode that focused on The Plane Ride From Hell. Tommy Dreamer essentially excused what Ric Flair did on that plane and that resulted in him getting suspended by Impact Wrestling. Ric Flair also lost a bit of work and he was temporarily cancelled, but The Nature Boy is coming back already.
CarShield commercials featuring Ric Flair were put on hold after the controversy. However, CarShield decided to run commercials featuring Ric Flair again during this week’s episode of NXT 2.0. Naturally, fans were surprised at this and took to social media and expressed their disbelief.

CarShield just brought the Ric Flair commercial back. What. #WWENXT
So CarShield is back to showing Ric Flair commercials? Hmmm…#WWENXT
Ric Flair also recently stated that he would rather die in the ring than spend a month in the ICU. It remains to be seen if Flair will ever go to AEW or not in the future.
