WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair found himself embroiled in controversy recently after criticizing Piesanos Stone Fired Pizza in Gainesville, Florida, for what he deemed disrespectful treatment. Footage emerged, shedding light on the confrontation between Flair and the restaurant staff, providing insight into the events leading up to the incident.

Flair expressed his discontent with Piesanos, stating that despite spending $1,500 at the restaurant and graciously taking 20 pictures with customers and staff, he was asked to leave following an altercation with the kitchen manager. His complaint gained public attention, prompting scrutiny of the circumstances surrounding his ejection.

According to Flair, the confrontation ensued when he perceived the manager spending an excessive amount of time in the bathroom, leading to a heated exchange. Subsequently, Flair cautioned patrons seeking a pleasant dining experience in Gainesville to steer clear of Piesanos. The restaurant co-owner defended the decision to remove Flair.

“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.”


Ringside News obtained footage capturing the entirety of Flair’s confrontation with the kitchen manager, revealing Flair’s palpable frustration and choice words directed at the manager, including labeling him a ‘dips****’ and challenging him to a physical altercation outside the restaurant. Flair concluded the encounter by offering a $1000 tip to one of the female staff members.

While the incident could have been avoided, it serves as a reminder for Flair to exercise restraint in contentious situations to prevent further controversy. As for The Nature Boy’s future endeavors, only time will tell what lies ahead.

It’s unfortunate to see such a public spat unfold, but let’s hope Ric Flair can navigate smoother waters moving forward.
