Vince Russo takes a shot at Ric Flair

The last month has been quite turbulent for the legendary Ric Flair. The 16-time world champion was first released by WWE for creative differences, a move that very few would have imagined among fans and insiders alike. As if that were not enough, the 'Nature Boy' recently ended up in the eye of the storm following the latest episode of 'Dark Side of the Ring', in which the controversial 'Plane Ride From Hell' was told.

According to the reconstructions of the protagonists, Flair would have had a series of inappropriate and harassing behaviors towards a stewardess during that flight. The negative repercussions did not take long to manifest themselves, given that 'CarShield' has decided to suspend its partnership with Ric indefinitely.

During the last episode of 'Writing with Russo' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo analyzed in detail the difficult time Ric Flair is going through.

Vince Russo slams Ric Flair

“Conrad is Ric Flair's son-in-law.

He also has ties to All Elite Wrestling and Tony Khan. Without wanting to disrespect anyone, but I doubt 72-year-old Ric Flair is still able to attract spectators. We have to be very honest, even if we are talking about a legendary wrestler” - explained Vince Russo.

"If you remember how things went, it won't have escaped you that Ric Flair didn't agree with Lacey Evans' pregnancy angle and all. He had repeated several times that he was not comfortable with him in that role. Why didn't he back off at that exact moment? I would like to find an answer to this question.

If you agree to go on, you cannot later complain about the creative differences with WWE," he added. Russo also focused on Vince McMahon: “I think that if AEW were to start to prevail with constancy in the war of ratings, then the situation would take on embarrassing connotations for him.

Business and television contracts cannot take the place of his enormous ego”. Ric Flair noticed an article detailing Rob Van Dam's comments about what happened between Flair and flight attendant Heidi Doyle. He was enraged at Van Dam's comments and stated that he tried to destroy his reputation based on an assumption.

"A Man Tried To Destroy My Reputation Based On An Assumption. I Don’t Even Know What To Say Right Now," tweeted Ric Flair. The Plane Ride From Hell is one of the most controversial incidents in WWE history and was as real as it could get.

The latest "Dark Side of the Ring" episode focused on the infamous flight from 2002. Heidi Doyle was a flight attendant on the plane ride and appeared in the episode.
