In recent weeks we have returned to talk about various topics related to the world of pro-wrestling, not exactly uplifting, with Ric Flair, twice WWE Hall of Famer, as well as 16 times world champion in his career with WWE and WCW, who was hit by a wave of mud, due to one of the last episodes of the well-known Dark Side of the Ring broadcast, in which the lights are placed on some macabre topics or truly aberrant facets of the wrestling discipline.
From this broadcast, it emerged that Ric Flair has repeatedly deliberately harassed women in his career and in his private life, with such attitudes that have obviously been condemned by all the television stations that work with WWE and whose audience is composed mostly of the families.
Apparently, the name of Ric Flair’s become untouchable, as was that of Hulk Hogan after the scandal of the racist phrases, against one of his daughter’s friends.
Backstage News on Ric Flair
According to what was revealed in the last few hours by the well-known site Ringside News, at the moment the void would have been literally created around the figure of the two-time WWE Hall of Famer, with all the important television partners of the Stamford company, which would have completely canceled the name of Ric Flair from the list of possible Legends that could appear in the future on the television screens of the federation.
In a sentence that emerged from some speeches from WWE circles, it is even said that Ric Flair is compared to an Indian “pariah”, or the so-called “untouchables”, part of the lower castes of the Indians, who are precisely ousted from society for the most disparate reasons.
After what emerged on TV with that television broadcast, therefore, a vortex of the destruction of the character of the Nature Boy seems to have been created, which is unlikely to be extinguished in the coming months, so it is very unlikely that we will see the face of the WWE Hall of Famer on the company’s television screens of the WWE in a short time, also because both USA Network and FOX, have expressed the will not work with this character.
Ric Flair and Sting memorably faced off against each other in the main event of the last episode of WCW Nitro. While Ric Flair joined WWE shortly thereafter, Sting didn’t show up in WWE until 2014. Though their paths rarely crossed in WWE, the two legends met again in TNA (IMPACT Wrestling) and rekindled their rivalry.
On September 12, 2011, Sting and Ric Flair faced off one last time on an episode of IMPACT, and The Stinger emerged victorious.
