Car Shield pauses commercials with Ric Flair following last night’s Dark Side of the Ring

Ric Flair is starting to feel the backlash coming out of last night’s Dark Side of Ring that aired on Vice TV.

PWInsider says Car Shield is pausing their campaign with the WWE Hall Of Famer. The official statement reads, “We take these matters very seriously. As of right now, we are pausing the campaign and we will do our due diligence.”

There is no timetable for the Flair spots to return to TV. PWInsider added that the commercial will soon disappear pending additional investigation and decisions.

During the documentary, flight attendant Heidi Doyle recounted the events from that flight and said that Flair was naked under his robe and then corner her in the galley of the plane before forcing her to touch his penis.

Flair was on Renee Paquette’s podcast and he was asked to give his thoughts on the documentary. Flair said, “God, I’ve heard about it too. Just when things are going good for me. Listen, you [Renee Paquette] put me on your podcast after. We’ll see how it plays out, because I was there and I don’t care whose name I gotta drop if the heat falls on me. I know who was where and what and who and what took place. I know the whole story.”

Flair has previously denied the allegations. Tommy Dreamer was suspended today for his comments on the show that seemed to defend Flair.
