Ric Flair Deletes Controversial Photo With Hospitalized Wrestling Legend WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair has deleted a controversial photo with a wrestling legend that was posted to social media.

The photo has been described as “tasteless”, “dreadful” and other such synonyms on social media where a screenshot of the post has been shared.

With some of the posts being seen by tens of thousands of people, deleting it certainly hasn’t taken it away from the eyes of wrestling fans.

In the photo, Ric Flair can be seen smiling with his arm around a woman who appears to be Misty McMichael, with her husband and wrestling legend Steve ‘Mongo’ McMichael in bed, attached to medical equipment.

His caption for the now-deleted post was one of support for his friend and fellow Four Horsemen member:

“My Friend Mongo Is Stronger Than Anyone We Know!”

Whilst the half of the photo with Flair in it wouldn’t be noteworthy on its own, the full image (which we shall not post here) with Mongo McMichael is the cause of much of the anger on social media.

Steve ‘Mongo’ McMichael was diagnosed with ALS in 2021 and has had frequent hospital visits as a result.
