Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is a legendary figure in professional wrestling, known for his numerous achievements and widespread fame. Flair recently criticized a restaurant for its disrespectful behavior toward him, leading to a public response from the restaurant’s co-owner, who justified their decision to kick him out.

Ric Flair recently aired his grievances with Piesanos Stone Fired Pizza in Gainesville, Florida. He mentioned spending $1,500 at the restaurant and taking 20 pictures with customers and staff, only to be asked to leave following an altercation with the kitchen manager.

Flair stated that the manager spent too long in the bathroom, triggering the confrontation. He advised anyone seeking a relaxed dining experience in Gainesville to avoid Piesanos, suggesting that the restaurant’s handling of the situation was far from satisfactory.

According to The Gainesville Sun, Piesanos Stone Fired Pizza’s co-owner Jerry Roberts stated that video evidence provides clarity on why Ric Flair was asked to leave the restaurant. However, the video hasn’t been publicly released.


“We have reviewed video of the incident that took place recently at our restaurant. It is clear that our team worked in a professional manner to ensure the safety of guests and staff. We have thanked our team for their professionalism. We are proud of how they responded to this situation, demonstrating our team values.”

Ric Flair also called out the ‘Who Killed WCW?’ docuseries for excluding him. Nonetheless, we may never know what exactly happened at the restaurant that led to The Nature Boy getting kicked out, but the restaurant co-owner certainly believed it was enough to warrant kicking him out in the end.
