Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair took to Twitter shortly after this week’s (November 7), clearly unhappy at WWE Hall of Famer JBL being featured on the show.
Flair took exception to JBL being on the show, citing his history of controversy in the WWE locker room.
In the same tweet, Flair also expressed disappointment at JBL being in the Hall of Fame.
The tweet read:
I Guess The Anti Bullying Program You So Heavily Endorsed Does Not Apply To Bradshaw!! Jason Roberts And Joey Styles!! What A Joke! And He’s In The HOF! Sad!
Following up on his angry tweet, Flair spoke about JBL on his To Be The Man podcast, detailing the history of ‘brutal’ bullying from Bradshaw in the locker room.
“I’ve seen it all. I get so tired of people, you know, fans, marks, whatever they are, whatever, in all due respect to them, but they don’t have an opinion if they’re not there.
“To me, I’m never going to get off the fact that wrestling is a fraternity. It should be a brotherhood, respect for everybody, and there’s no time for anybody to cause anybody personal embarrassment or hardship in our business. There is no place for it.
“We all know the story of Bradshaw. It’s fu**ing brutal. but he’s rewarded with a Hall of Fame? It’s their company. They do what they want to do.
“But what about the three or four guys I’ve seen melt down personally, melt down and cry. They were so humiliated.”
Flair then detailed whether or not he personally had a falling out with JBL.
“I didn’t have a falling out. I’m making a personal observation. He’s always nice to me.
“Everybody could take a rib, but outright bullying a guy where he really feels like sh*t? It’s not healthy. It doesn’t do anybody good.
“He’s never done anything to me. I guess I’m lucky but I mean, I wouldn’t tolerate it if he did, and obviously, Joey Styles didn’t either from what I’ve been told.
“So, you know, it just got to be cut off somewhere. But I’ve seen people just cry over humiliation and we are supposed to be a brotherhood.”
JBL has been appearing on Raw weekly in recent weeks as the manager for Baron Corbin.
Flair also spoke about howhe plans to address the ‘bulls**t’ stories from the ‘Plane Ride From Hell’ in an upcoming documentary.
