On this day in 2014, we lost Old School WCW Veteran Sean O’Haire (Real name: Sean Christopher Haire) when he committed suicide at the age of 43.
Trained at WCW’s own Wrestling School, the WCW Power Plant, Sean had his televised debut on WCW TV in mid-2000 and soon became a member of the ‘Natural Born Thrillers’ stable.
When WCW was bought by Vince McMahon in 2001, so was O’Haire’s contract.
He left the WWE in 2004 and got into MMA, where he held a 4-2 record.

• Possible Reason Ric Flair Is Suing WWE – Needs To Pay $280,000
As we have noted before, two time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is planning to sue WWE over “The Man” trademark.
While Flair doesn’t have a problem with Becky Lynch calling herself “The Man”, Flair wants WWE to pay him in return.
While Flair thinks he should be paid, WWE’s lawyer blew him off by saying that he has no case for royalty money here.
Flair now wants to do legal battle with WWE so that he can take care of his family financially.
One of the reasons that Flair is suing WWE could be the fact that he needs to pay $280,000 to the government.
Just a few days after undergoing heart surgery back in June, Flair was hit with a $280,000 tax bill.
According to Tax documents, Flair owes the federal government $239,871 on his earnings from 2016 to 2018, and he owes another $38,703 to the state of Georgia.
Flair (worth estimated at $3 million) has a few years to settle the debt before any property is seized.
Prior to this, Flair has dealt with tax issues 3 times before as well – in 1990, 2000 & 2005.
With this ongoing controversial situation, Triple H and Seth Rollins (Becky’s fiancé) have unfollowed Flair on Twitter.
The means that the relationship between WWE and Ric Flair is starting to crack.
