– According to Mike Mooneyham, writer and friend of Flair, Ric Flair is owed a “considerable amount” of backpay by TNA. This is reportedly the reason for Flair’s dispute with officials on the recent overseas tour.
Flair felt disrespected by TNA on the tour and asked them for advance pay based on them owing him money for future dates on the tour and money unrelated to the tour. Flair was told he couldn’t get an advance draw because of a policy that was created when Dustin Rhodes abused the system. Flair asked, “Am I Dustin Rhodes? Is that my spot in the company?”
Mooneyham said the recent reports of Flair asking co-workers for money at bars are untrue.
