- The below video shows WWE’s 2k13 30 Years of WrestleMania Symposium which is, well, quite unbelievable.
Ric Flair was said to be completely off the rails and the show host, Jim Ross, pretty much acknowledged that control had been lost on a few occasions and even implied the event was being sponsored by Grey Goose, a high-end vodka. Another highlight of the presentation was Paul Heyman ripping up Jim Ross’ script when it became apparent the whole thing was a train wreck.
Jim Ross also denied that he was drunk during the event when asked through Twitter.
Going back to Flair, ironically there had been some talk about bringing back Flair into the company in some sort of Ambassador role, and if this was a tryout, he spectacularly failed and there’s no way he could be brought back to promote a TV PG product if that’s how he’s going to act. There understandably is said to be some serious heat on him with TV executive Lisa Lee notifying management that Flair seemed to be drunk during the event. Executives Jane Geddes and Mark Carrano were ordered to remove Flair from the stage, and Stephanie McMahon also showed up at the event personally to apologize to 2K Sports on behalf of WWE.
The video is below and the fun starts around the 38 minute mark.
