WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair recently caused a stir when he criticized Piesanos Stone Fired Pizza in Gainesville, Florida, for what he described as disrespectful treatment. A video of the incident surfaced online, showing the events that led to Flair’s criticism. However, Flair has since acknowledged his own fault in the matter, making it clear he’s ready to take responsibility for his actions.

Ric Flair expressed his dissatisfaction with Piesanos Stone Fired Pizza, alleging that after spending $1,500 at the Gainesville restaurant and graciously posing for 20 photos with customers and staff, he was asked to leave following a dispute with the kitchen manager. His public criticism led to a closer look at the events leading to his removal.

According to Flair, the conflict began when he noticed the manager spending an unusually long time in the bathroom, leading to a heated exchange. Following the incident, Flair advised those seeking a pleasant dining experience in Gainesville to avoid Piesanos. In response, the restaurant’s co-owner defended the decision to eject 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.”


A video of the incident made its way online yesterday and led to ton of discussion among fans as well. All of this led to Ric Flair claiming he was considering filing lawsuit against the restaurant.

During his appearance on The MJ Morning Show on Q105, Ric Flair admitted to losing his temper during the incident at Piesanos Stone Fired Pizza in Gainesville, Florida. Flair explained that he became uncomfortable when a situation seemed to spiral out of control, leading him to get upset. He acknowledged that he was wrong for losing his temper.

“It just escalated, and I was wrong for getting mad, but I kind of felt like I was defending my position. I was wrong for losing my temper,” he added. “When I feel like I’m put in that area where I’m uncomfortable and all of a sudden everything just fell apart, I got upset.”

Flair noted that he should have simply walked out instead of engaging in the heated exchange. The argument with the kitchen manager began when someone accused him of doing something wrong in the bathroom, even though it was just him and the employee.

“I was wrong for getting upset. I probably just should have just walked out the door, but it caught me so off-guard because we were having a wonderful time. Then all of a sudden … someone in their kitchen said I did something wrong in the bathroom and there’s no one there except me and him.”

Flair denied being drunk or buzzed at the time of the incident, stating he had only consumed Michelob Ultras and “probably” two mixed drinks. Despite the altercation, Flair later ordered from Piesanos via Uber Eats, indicating that he wasn’t holding a grudge against the restaurant. Therefore, in this case, all’s well that ends well, and we hope Flair doesn’t end up in such drama again.
