Riki claims Charlotte defamed him in the book and is demanding more than $5 million in damages. Riki noted that the Flairs wrote negatively about him in the book and also wrote that he’s sterile.

Riki noted that his family, including 3 children, are humiliated as people believe what the Flairs wrote in that book.

Riki also noted that the book contains “multiple false allegations physical and/or psychological abuse” and that Flairs falsely claimed him of getting fired from two jobs because of illicit drug use.

He claims that he was made to look like a villain on purpose so that Charlotte could look like a “victim who overcame personal adversity and domestic abuse”.

Riki went on to sue WWE as well as he feels WWE was involved in the marketing of that book.

TMZ Sports reached out to WWE regarding this situation and WWE issued the following statement:

“We recently received what appears to be a meritless lawsuit and we will vigorously defend ourselves”.
