- As noted, Ric Flair is suing his former management group, Legacy Talent and Entertainment, claiming that they took $25,000 that was due to him for his ESPN "30 for 30" documentary, along with a $12,000 endorsement deal. Legacy Talent released a statement to TMZ Sports saying Flair "blatantly lied."
"Ric Flair has always been known to be dramatic and looking desperately for the spotlight," Legacy Talent said. "That's fine as a wrestler but it is despicable when he blatantly lies. As anyone who read [the Ric Flair Grantland article] knows, Ric has always left a trail of destruction in his wake whether it be from his ex wives, the IRS, creditors, or from his former business partners and friends... the debris is everywhere. Our client wishes Flair nothing but the best and is sad that things have come to this after over a decade of hard work and incredible results for their client."
In regards to the money Flair believes is owed to him:
"Our client provided Flair an accounting of funds as they always did throughout their representation," Legacy Talent said. "Flair then demanded funds that belonged to buyers be released from trust that he had not yet earned and our client would not be bullied into doing anything unethical. In reality the $37,000 in dispute are in his management company's trust account while we were working out a settlement on the sums of money owed our client from deals and money Flair hid from his management."
