WWE Fire Powerful Name After WrestleMania

WWE have reportedly fired their head of talent relations after WrestleMania 40.



WWE Hall of Famer and a pro wrestling icon Ric Flair has recently entered the marijuana industry and he joined in for an interview with MLive. While the interviewer, Gus Burns envisioned that he would bring out some unknown facts involving marijuana use in pro wrestling from the early days, that didn’t happen. Instead, Flair was all riled up.

Flair toured five Detroit-area marijuana shops in March promoting his own marijuana line of pre-rolls, flower and edibles called Ric Flair Drip, named after the seven-times-platinum rap song of the same name that accompanied a viral video featuring an expensively dressed, heavily jeweled Flair flaunting his wealth in a mansion.

The interviewer tried to ask about marijuana use in the 1980s wrestling scene but Flair’s answers were blunt.

Flair was asked: “Did wrestlers use marijuana to treat injuries, rather than turning to pain pills?

“I don’t know,” Flair said. “I don’t ask people about their personal lives.”

The interviewer pushed forward, asking about how professional wrestling dealt with marijuana arrests involving specific wrestlers and whether tales of personalities hiring members of their entourage to conceal and transport marijuana were true.

It seemed that Ric Flair was not a fan of the query.

“I don’t like the way this interview is going,” Flair said, becoming irritated. “Why would you ask me to comment about other people?”

“I’m more than known for that,” Flair said. “I’m the greatest wrestler that’s ever lived.”

I continued: “I guess I was interested in your connections with … “

“None of your goddamn business,” he said, cutting me off again.

“I don’t want to be part of that conversation,” Flair said. “Just promote my line. It’s the best sh** going … What’s that got to do with my line dropping?”
