Ric Flair Removed From WWE 2K14 Symposium Due To His Condition
Ric Flair was in rare form at Saturday’s WWE 2K14 “30 Years of WrestleMania” symposium discussion, hosted by Jim Ross. Flair, along with Steve Austin, Paul Heyman, Mick Foley, Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler and Rey Mysterio, spoke about the video game and told a number of entertaining stories from their careers.
According to reports, Flair, however – is now in hot water with WWE management due to his conduct at the event.
According to a backstage source in WWE, WWE Executives Jane Geddes and Mark Carrano were summoned by TV exec Lisa Lee to the event to remove Ric Flair from the stage while the event was still ongoing. Lisa Lee was shooting the event on her cell phone and notified WWE management that Flair appeared to be intoxicated.
Flair was said to be “out of control, profane and a total wreck.”
WWE was reportedly furious about the public display by Flair, who has been negotiating to be the good will ambassador for the company. Stephanie McMahon personally came out and had to apologize to 2K Sports on behalf of WWE.
