Ric Flair has caused anger online with many seemingly unhappy after comments he made for AEW Rampage leaked.
Ric Flair is one of the greatest wrestlers of all time but he is also one of the most controversial men in the history of the business. Generations of fans have been entertained by the stylin’ and profilin’ of The Nature Boy and he has been both loved and hated during his career.
However, many were turned off to the sixteen-time champion of the world after Ric Flair was accused of serious sexual assault by a flight attendant with those historical claims coming to prominence again as part of the Dark Side of the Ring documentary series. And that’s why many aren’t happy with Flair’s comments on Rampage.
What Did Ric Flair Say On AEW Rampage?
Ric Flair appeared with Sting on both Dynamite and Rampage in Minneapolis but it is his apparent promo on Rampage that has caught the attention of many online. Flair is quoted as saying “18-28 no boyfriends, no husbands, meet me at my hotel room.”
While this – and variations of it – have long been part of Flair’s on-screen repertoire, there has been an outpouring of anger and disgust on social media due to the allegations that have been made against Flair – it should be noted that Ric Flair has always strenuously denied these and the fact that Flair at 74 years old is asking 18-year-old women back to his hotel room. However, some have defended the line as being one Flair has trotted out before and that he is simply playing up to his character.
Whether or not this line airs on the taped show and whether it causes a more serious backlash to Ric Flair and AEW remains to be seen.
