As previously noted, Ric Flair is denying the claims that he forced himself or sexually assaulted flight attendant Heidi Doyle on the infamous Plane Ride From Hell in 2002.

Doyle spoke out for the first time on Dark Side of the Ring on Thursday and Rob Van Dam appeared to corroborate that something happened in the galley of the plane but Flair is denying that anything happened.

Flair issued a statement last night, which you can read by clicking here and then he issued a clarification statement to Wrestling Inc, which you can read below:

To clarify, the “helicopter” as it was called, is accurate. I wish I could blame it on youth, but it was a case of drinking too much and being inappropriate and I apologize for that (and have countless times over the years).

I made some bad decisions during dark periods in my life, and it is something I’ve spent a significant part of years I was given by the doctors in 2017 trying to make right.

I condemn sexual assault in any way, shape or form. I could (and have) written books (as have others) that have covered my transgressions. I’ve made some terrible decisions, but I’ve never forced myself on anyone in any way. Period.

As previously noted, Car Shield announced on Friday that Flair's ads would be pulled from the airwaves. That has not happened yet because there were Car Shield ads with Flair in them airing over the weekend and last night on Raw.

WWE removed Flair from the signature open that starts every Raw and SmackDown broadcast. A 'WWE Story Time' episode featuring Flair has been removed. During the episode, he told a story where he claims that flight attendants convinced him to take his clothes on and to wear just a robe. Flair merchandise has also been removed from WWEShop.com.
