More On Ric Flair Screwing Over Indy Promotion

New promotion XSE was forced to cancel their debut events when Ric Flair pulled out of booking in favor of another show in Virginia. Of course, Flair was offered more money so he screwed the promotion over.

This is just my opinion but if you make a booking and the promotion bases their entire show off of your name, you should stick with it and not wind up screwing them over in the end. This happens time and time again with Flair. Sigh … give us your thoughts below in the comments section!

    I agree with the writer. If flair signed the paper work and said he would be there, he should have stuck to that, and not screwed them over

    He was wrong for not showing.

    But if the only draw in your entire show is someone showing up to talk, you shouldnt run a promotion to begin with.

      But that's how a lot of indies get started out. They bring in a big name, to draw a crowd to watch their performers.

      • purpleurkel says:

        I agree. I wrestled an Indy back in the 90s. They could still let the show go on. I guess they refunded tickets though. Nothing left over to pay the performers.

        You make a valid point sir

    Dick Flair strikes again. What an asshole.

  4. CKinzu says:

    Have Indy promoters not yet learned there are some wrestlers that are just not worth booking? Why keep booking these guys and girls with a track history of ditching out on the show at the last minute?

    Flair is a loser ! Flair has done this before,and continues to tarnish his legacy. I don't know why the WWE,want to get in bed with him.

  6. 02Roadking says:

    It doesn't matter what 'should' happen and contemplate why you are shocked that Flair has no moral compass.

    Next time, expect it and act accordingly….

    I would say sue Flair to teach him a lesson, but he's broke so you can't make a stone bleed as they say

  8. Cezar_TheScribe says:

    Should be a crime to break contracts.

  9. JoeWrestling says:

    We know Flair only cares about the money. At the same time, we have no idea what the discussions between Flair and this promotion were. Maybe XSE jumped to conclusions. Maybe Flair wanted terms upfront and they never came through. We can't really judge not knowing the facts. If someone pulls out of a contracted appearance and causes expense to a company he could be liable in civil court for damages, but really I don't think this amounts to much. Likely Flair didn't even consider this a finished deal, you can't judge just by what the promotion advertises.
