Ric Flair says that a former WWE Champion should not be in the company’s Hall of Fame as he alludes to allegations made about bullying.
JBL is back on WWE television on Monday Night Raw as he looks to get the career of former United States Champion Baron Corbin back on track.
Formerly the longest-reigning WWE Champion on SmackDown, JBL transitioned from an in-ring career to one at the commentary desk on both Raw and SmackDown. But while he had many fans, there were allegations that JBL’s behaviour behind the scenes was less than exemplary.
Taking to social media, Ric Flair hit out at JBL while commenting on those alleged to have been bullied by the star over the years including AEW ring announcer Justin Roberts – who Flair refers to as Jason – and former ECW announcer, Joey Styles:
“”I Guess The Anti Bullying Program You So Heavily Endorsed Does Not Apply To Bradshaw [JBL]!! Jason Roberts And Joey Styles!! What A Joke! And He’s In The HOF! Sad!””

It is currently unknown why Ric Flair has taken issue with JBL in this way but The Nature Boy is no stranger to allegations made against his own conduct over the years.
On an episode of Dark Side Of The Ring focusing on ‘The Plane Ride From Hell’ Flair was alleged to have sexually harassed one of the flight attendants – something he has adamantly denied.
