Ric Flair Lays Into WWE, Says Nick Khan Is Why He's Not On TV, And Vows To Regain "The Man" Trademark

WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair has taken aim at his former employers with a series of damaging accusations, most of which are directed at WWE President Nick Khan. Find out what the Nature Boy had to say here...

Ric Flair launched his Wooooo Nation Uncensored podcast today, and the Nature Boy is kicking things off with a series of damaging claims aimed at WWE. He was released by them earlier this year, and while we expected him to head straight to AEW, it seems those plans may have been paused after that damaging Dark Side of the Ring episode. 

Asked about his recent comments that WWE is trying to erase his legacy, Flair said: "If you take me off the opening of the show and take the 'Woo,' which I own, thank God, because they will never get it back, and replace me with The Ultimate Warrior, a guy that sued the company, held them up for money, I guess the next thing they’re going to do with me is make a DVD having so many people say how bad I was like The Warrior, then they brought him back and put him in The Hall of Fame."

Refusing to say a single bad word about Vince McMahon, Flair did, however, lay into WWE President Nick Khan. "I couldn’t ever work for Nick Khan in my entire life. Vince McMahon, I can work for, but Nick Khan, who is a guy who orchestrated taking me off the show," he claimed. "I’ve got my facts together. He orchestrated taking my Woo off. Never in a million years."

Apparently, Flair still talks to Vince and they're on friendly terms. He just won't work for Khan (who is also believed to be responsible for 2021's 80+ talent releases). Things got even more damaging when the WWE Hall of Famer claimed, "they asked me to assign my intellectual property to them while I was on life support, nothing that company does surprises me."

As for the controversy surrounding "The Man" trademark, Flair says Triple H told him there's a difference between Flair owning "To Be The Man" and "The Man" (Becky Lynch's nickname). Despite that, the Nature Boy says, "They still don’t own it. If I get a chance and I get cleared legally, I’m going to go back and get it."

It looks like things are only going to get more interesting from here...
