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.
