• “There’s no excuse for it” – Jim Cornette On What Ric Flair Did During The Plane Ride From Hell
During a recent edition of his podcast, Jim Cornette gave his opinion on what Ric Flair during the infamous Plane Ride From Hell in 2002.
Here’s what Cornette said:
“I hate that Flair has come off looking like this because I know the guy. And I genuinely believe he never wanted to hurt anyone or offend anyone or freak anybody out or make anyone feel like that poor flight attendant felt.
It was something that he did, that people wanted him to do so long that he never knew when to stop, I guess.
It was wrong and he shouldn’t have done it. It wasn’t the time, it wasn’t the place, and it wasn’t the people. There’s no excuse for it.
But I still, just knowing Ric generally believe that down deep in his heart or brain or whatever, he didn’t think that he was offending anyone or doing anything wrong that anybody would remember and be pissed about the next day.”
