Separating Truth From Fiction with The Reports on WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair

Tim ListAnalyst IAugust 16, 2008

In a very interesting report posted at http://www.wrestlingnewsdesk.com/WND/the_news/wrestling/separating_truth_from_rumor_with_all_the_reports_about_wwe_hall_of_famer_ric_flair_200808151853.htm, we finally can discern truth from fiction with all the reports about NWA/WCW legend and WWE Hall of Famer "Nature Boy" Ric Flair.

Ric Flair is following in the footsteps of his archrival for the legacy of "greatest of all time"—Hulk Hogan, and about to go through a divorce. The rumor is that his wife already filed.

That report came from this week's WRESTLING OBSERVER newsletter, in which reporter/guru Dave Meltzer stated Flair's wife had filed. As Meltzer pointed out on his website this week, the filing hasn't taken place. But Flair has told people another marriage is headed for divorce court.

This is just part of the reason Flair is feeling enormous financial pressure and decided to go for the short term dollars he can make on the open market right now outside of the long term financial security of World Wrestling Entertainment.

Flair's agents are requesting $15,000 for a live appearance fee, and a $50,000 fee for the first shoot tape he does. These are not rumors, these are facts.  Flair is in high demand right now, and he is trying to get every dollar out of the market for "Ric Flair" that he can at the moment.
We'll keep on separating the fact from the fiction regarding all the stories on Nature Boy Ric Flair as this most interesting story continues to develop.
