Ric Flair’s involvement with Car Shield has been paused until further notice, following allegations made on a recent episode of the TV series Dark Side of the Ring. During the show, Flair had allegedly sexually harassed a flight attendant on the infamous Plane Ride From Hell back in 2002.
Following the allegations, Intermedia, who handle the advertisements for Car Shield, made the following statement to PWInsider:
“We take these matters very seriously. As of right now, we are pausing the campaign and we will do our due diligence.”
Ric Flair has filmed multiple advertisements for Car Shield since April 2021. Most of the advertisements feature Flair in his iconic robe or inside of a wrestling ring. At the time of writing, there is no timetable of return for the former WWE star.
Ric Flair is not the only wrestler to be affected by the recent episode of Dark Side of the Ring. Tommy Dreamer has been suspended from IMPACT Wrestling indefinitely following his comments on the Flair allegations.
