KEY POINTS

  • Ric Flair denied the allegations that came about in the "Plane Ride From Hell" incident
  • Flight attendant Heidi Doyle recounted what happened in the latest "Dark Side of the Ring" episode
  • Rumors of an appearance in AEW have now been shelved due to the nature of the controversy

Wrestling legend Ric Flair has responded via Twitter to the allegations that surfaced in Vice’s “Dark Side of the Ring” series, namely in the “Plane Ride From Hell” episode aired last week.

“Every person that I’ve worked with has said not to post a response, but I’ve never run from past behaviors before and I’m not going to start now,” wrote Flair in the screenshot.

Flair talked about how he gave ESPN “full access” to his life in a “30 for 30” special which covered everything from his financial issues, adultery, divorces, the passing of his son, Reid Flair, and his partying lifestyle.

Flair later wrote that he allowed his personal life, and the life of his wife and kids, to be “turned upside down” because “the truth has to matter. Even in wrestling.”

He ended his Twitter post with the following message: “The reason Rory [Karpf] (director of the '30 for 30' special on Flair) never heard stories of me forcing myself on anyone is simple: it never happened.”

Flair has been in hot water for the past couple of days after it was revealed in the Vice documentary that an intoxicated Flair had forced himself upon flight attendant Heidi Doyle.

This was the first time that the full details of the infamous scandal had been brought to light after nearly two decades of rumors on what happened.

Taking quick action, WWE decided to remove Flair from the intro package that airs on WWE programming and also pulled out his merchandise from the WWE shop.

Flair continues to deal with the fallout as it has been rumored that it now seems unlikely to see him in AEW as the manager for Andrade El Idolo after the revelations from the documentary, according to Dave Meltzer.
