• Tommy Dreamer Issues Statement After Dark Side Of The Ring Controversy & Suspension
As seen during the latest Dark Side Of The Ring episode, Ric Flair got accused of sexual assault by a flight attendant during the ‘Plane Ride From Hell’ in 2002.
She claimed that Flair, who wore nothing but a robe, forced her to touch his penis.
Tommy Dreamer then said the following about Flair (he was interviewed for this episode):
“He could move his hips, twirl it and so his well-endowed penis spins around like a helicopter. So, hey, he’s the Nature Boy for a reason, he’s got a hammer on him.
Ric Flair’s not going to try to impose by force any sexual stuff onto anybody. He’s just flaunting, styling and profiling, doing the Ric Flair stuff where everybody’s going to laugh about it. But obviously, someone took offence to it.”
In 2004, two flight attendants decided to sue, but later settled out of court for an undisclosed amount of money.
Heidi Doyle, who was one of the flight attendants, said she decided to take the money because her husband didn’t want this to go public.
This led to Dreamer making the following comments:
“If that’s how she felt, maybe she should have not taken a payout and went to the fullest extend of the law to then truly put this heinous person in jail. My opinion.”
These comments led to Dreamer getting a lot of heat on Social Media and Impact Wrestling went on to suspend him.
Dreamer has now issued the following statement on Twitter:
“Regarding my comments made on Dark Side of the Ring. It was never my intention to offend, hurt or victim shame anyone. I understand my comments were insensitive and could trigger emotions in someone’s own personal past.
I do not condone sexual misconduct of any kind. I apologize to anyone I offended. From the bottom of my heart. I am so sorry.”
