Ric Flair Pulls Out Of TNA’s European Tour Following Dispute



Ric Flair has pulled out of the remaining dates of TNA Wrestling’s ongoing European tour.

While in Dublin, Ireland, Flair reportedly demanded money “in advance” from a company official. When his request wasn’t granted, Flair allegedly tried to play hardball, refusing to get on a bus that was taking personnel to the airport for their flight. A decision was made to leave Flair behind due to this.

“He threw a fit,” said a company source, who spoke under the condition of anonymity. “He was playing ‘Nature Boy’ on the tour and got pissed off and threw a tantrum. As far as we all know, he’s in Dublin still. He said he wasn’t coming and he wasn’t in Berlin.”

There were members of the TNA roster in favor of leaving Flair behind due to his outburst. Some even mocked him, using his “signature promo lines” after he was left behind.

There was much discussion on whether Flair’s “partying” on the road during the tour factored into his refusal to board the bus.

To clarify, Flair was not sent home from the tour by management. It’s been indicated that Flair is still in Europe and could reach the troupe in Scotland, if he chooses.

There was no official decision to send him home, just to leave him behind as opposed to holding up an entire talent roster waiting to travel internationally.

Flair was one of the top attractions of the tour, which was named the “Maximum Wooo!” Tour. He accompanied Beer Money, Inc. for TNA Tag Team Championship Matches at prior events in France and Ireland.
