Ric Flair furious after not being paid by WWE

As reported earlier, Ric Flair wants money from WWE for them using ”The Man” phrase, which he claims he has been using since the 1970s. He is now considering legal action against WWE if they do not pay him for using the phrase.

According to a report by The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Ric Flair was fine with Becky Lynch using the “The Man” when she was feuding with Charlotte Flair, as it further intensified the storyline. It was said that the two sides behaved as though Flair would be paid, but he was not.

Ric Flair would then get furious after a WWE attorney blew him off when he asked for his payment.

He evidently got hot at a WWE lawyer for telling him he had no case for royalties from the phrase. Flair said his attorney called WWE and they blew off his attorney. This has actually gone on as an issue between Flair and WWE, but Flair hasn’t stopped attending shows and WWE still featured him on Raw Reunion, nor has it affected his daughter’s booking since he filed for ownership of the name

It is also to be noted that due to this ordeal, the relationship between Ric Flair and his daughter Charlotte Flair is getting problematic.

We will provide updates regarding this ongoing situation once we learn more.

    Sorry Ric, but unless you’ve trademarked the phrase, you ain’t getting a dime.

    Flair also owns falling over, bleeding, having blonde hair and shouting.

    What’s next? “Flair attempts to trademark backhand chops”?

  • Solid

    Hey, gotta pay those 20 ex-wives any way he can. I’m surprised he doesn’t want to be paid any time someone woooooooo’s on TV 😀

  • Keith Learmonth

    So basically, Flair is so obsessed with getting a few thousand in royalties for a phrase which us utterly generic and has been used the world over for decades, that he’s willing to risk his relationship with his own daughter?

    I knew things were bad for him financially, but god damn, Ric.

    Thats what we would all like to know.

    Who’s Harrison??

  • Darrin Tyler

    This is laughable. There is no case, he’s a plank and needs to shut his mouth.

  • Whistling Joe

    As Michael Cole would say, “Vintage Harrison!”

    So basically this story adds nothing to the one posted earlier
