In a recent appearance on the “To Be The Man” podcast, Ric Flair, the Nature Boy and WWE Hall of Famer, shared his thoughts on a 2005 road rage incident that made headlines when it occurred. The incident involved Flair allegedly getting into an altercation with a 29-year-old man on Interstate 495 in Charlotte, North Carolina, while Flair was driving a brand new Cayenne SUV after returning from England.

According to Flair, the incident started when the other driver, who was tailgating him, gave him the finger and started screaming at him. Flair said he was tired and had not had a drink before driving, and he just wanted to get home. The other driver then threw a beer can at Flair’s car, which prompted Flair to get out of his vehicle and approach the man. Flair claimed that the man had a tire tool in his hand, and he may have pushed him or something.

Flair was charged with causing bodily harm and simple assault and battery, and although he initially denied any wrongdoing, he eventually decided to cooperate with the police and was arrested. The incident became major news across the country, and Flair’s employer at the time, WWE, even used the incident as material for a storyline involving Edge.

In reflection, Flair said that he was tired and not at his best when the incident occurred, and he acknowledged that he may have overreacted. However, he also expressed frustration with the way the incident was portrayed in the media and the public’s reaction to it.

Despite the incident, Flair’s career continued to thrive, and he went on to have many more years of success in the wrestling world. He has announced that he will be making appearances at the 30th anniversary of Monday Night RAW and the 2023 Royal Rumble, and fans are eagerly anticipating his return to the ring.

The incident, which was once a major controversy, has now become a humorous anecdote for Flair, who is known for his ability to laugh at himself and find the humor in difficult situations.
