Major Backstage Heat On Ex-TNA Talent Ric Flair

Ric Flair has some serious heat with management over his conduct at the WWE 2K14 “30 Years of WrestleMania” panel. According to sources, TV executive Lisa Lee was at the event and shot video of it on her camera before notifying WWE management that Flair seemed to be drunk. WWE Executives Jane Geddes and Mark Carrano were summoned to remove Flair from the stage while it was ongoing.

WWE officials are very angry at Flair, who has been in talks to be the company’s goodwill ambassador. Stephanie McMahon had to personally show up at the event and apologize to 2K Sports on behalf of WWE.

Seriously, you need to watch this video below, especially near the end ….

    Ric flair comes drunk to a wwe event. Jeff Hardy not only made a YouTube video high as a kite and probably with alcohol in his system with his brother Matt, cussing and talking down on wwe at some restaurant, he came out at tna at I think during a ppv against sting, high as a kite off that pot. And everybody already knows rvd is a 100% pot head. It seems like in wrestling, being an alcoholic and drug attic is the thing to do

      A drug attic? Is that where you store your goods, I take it?

    • Roid Master says:

      Ric…is that you?

      i wouldnt say being an alcoholic or drug ADDICT is the thing to do. wrestlers put their body through a lot of "work". some find its a way to deal with injuries. see lesnar vicodin and vodka was his treatment like 10-11 years ago. in the case of the i guess non match hardy and sting had at i think victory road. that was a fuck up by hardy but hows been lately? does seem that daughter of his means he's got no time for stupidity anymore.

      in the case of other wrestlers they likely have some psychological disorder. benoit was friends with angle i thought. maybe that incident affected him more than he lets on. jericho was also friends with benoit as was mvp. they sound like they coped with it in better ways. the troubles of jake roberts and scott hall show how troubles can last a long time.

      wait what?????

      Since when?

      either way

      pills > pot

    WHAT ???? leave Ric Flair alone at the end of the day he’s a man just like any other man. He has his good, bad, and indifferent just as anyone else. WHAT??? I just hope he gets the help he needs if he feels he needs it!

  6. TheBringer92 says:

    I thought he was drunk when he came out to Damien.

  7. 1985dude says:

    He really didnt seem that drunk to me if he was at all. He came across to me as a old wrestler sitting with his buddies, telling stories of stuff that has happened into his career. I see no reason why Stephanie would've had to apologize for Ric Flair

    • andy3323 says:

      Yeah, I went to the last few minutes of the video, was expecting something crazy, kept skipping around and going back because I assumed I missed something. That was a drunk Flair?? I've seen him act 100x crazier on camera before, so I guess he was totally wasted all of these years on television??

    • oh0K says:

      wait what????? are you drunk?? Did you watch? he was obviously drunk , to say the least, and interrupted the entire show with memories of being drunk….whwnever anyone spoke….

  8. 02Roadking says:

    JR got a couple of good digs in at him.

  9. Sturk says:

    Stone cold aged so well! I love when wrestlers leave the business looking good.

  10. Sturk says:

    Flair was still entertaining no matter what. lol I'm glad this was brought to my attn

  11. 1Risky1 says:

  13. TwIsTeD_EnEmY says:

    Ric Flair on wrestling Mick Foley in TNA – " We stole it. We stole it in SummerSlam and in that company… Whats it called? TNA"

  14. whatsup121 says:

    Rick Flair was always hammered or had various drinking issues ie. TNA Europe tour , had to get someone to cover his bar tab

  15. Real Deal Heel says:

    Poor JR just trying to do PR on that shitty game…and Flair going on about being able to bang his wife.

    Stone Cold facepalming nonstop at 1:07:00 on says it all….just embarrassing hearing Flair ramble on….and on…and on…He's aged 30 years in the past 10.
