What’s going on with Ric Flair? Before the retired WWE star boarded his plane at the Boston airport, he had to be treated for a cut on his hand. And with no explanation for the strange injury, witnesses thought Ric was totally drunk!
Ric Flair was leaving on a jet plane…but not before dealing with airport police! Authorities responded to a call about a “man with a cut on his hand,” finding that it was the 67-year-old former wrestling pro who needed help. So what exactly happened, and was it a drunken incident? We have the scoop below!
Ric had stopped by an airport bar called Lucky’s Lounge before his flight, according to TMZ, but it was unclear what occurred with his hand. Witnesses told the outlet that Ric was obnoxiously loud, “having a tough time” and “shambling about” at his gate — certainly acting like a drunk person.
But after evaluation by airport police, Sgt. Donlon told TMZ that Ric was in fact not intoxicated. Despite the mystery injury and his strange conduct, Ric was even allowed to board his flight! That still leaves question to what happened to cause Ric’s hand injury, which is a question that is still unanswered. As for his reportedly erratic behavior? His agent, Melinda Morris Zanoni guarantees that it was caused by over-tiredness rather than alcohol.
“Ric has been working every day around the clock, including internationally, for a month straight and has injuries on his hand that were being looked into this morning,” Melinda told TMZ. “While it is true Ric Flair and his buddies have been keeping airport bars in business since the 70s that was not the case at all in Boston. I just hung up with Ric, he is already on the flight and all is good.”
