Ric Flair Issues Follow-Up Statement to “Dark Side of the Ring” Allegations


WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair has issued a follow-up statement to the allegations made against him on Vice TV’s Dark Side of the Ring episode that aired on the infamous WWE Plane Ride from Hell last Thursday night. The follow-up statement reads like this:

To clarify, the “helicopter” as it was called, is accurate. I wish I could blame it on youth, but it was a case of drinking too much and being inappropriate and I apologize for that (and have countless times over the years).

I made some bad decisions during dark periods in my life, and it is something I’ve spent a significant part of years I was given by the doctors in 2017 trying to make right.

I condemn sexual assault in any way, shape or form. I could (and have) written books (as have others) that have covered my transgressions. I’ve made some terrible decisions, but I’ve never forced myself on anyone in any way. Period.

As we’ve noted, Flair has received significant backlash over his behavior during the flight, which was publicized again last Thursday on DSOTR. Tommy Dreamer has also received heat for his defense of Flair.

Stay tuned for more.
