Ric Flair calls out WWE for inducting JBL into the WWE Hall of Fame

Throughout his storied career, JBL was accused of workplace harassment and bullying by several wrestlers.


John "Bradshaw" Layfield, better known as JBL, is a WWE Hall of Famer. He hasn't competed for the WWE much for the better part of the past decade and is now serving as manager of Baron Corbin. He most recently appeared for the WWE as one of the endorsers for an anti-bullying program, but it appears that fellow WWE Hall of Famer, Ric Flair, was having none of it.

Throughout his career, Ric Flair was known for wild outbursts. Who knew that it was his personality in real life as well.

Not long after JBL's promo segment on Monday Night Raw's most recent episode, the so-called Nature Boy called the company out for using JBL, writing:

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!

Surprisingly enough, JBL and Ric Flair has never fought 1v1 inside the ring before.

Over the years, several have spoken out against JBL of bullying in the WWE, specifically for taking not-so-good-natured pranks too far.

Seemingly not content with his tweet going viral, Flair talked about JBL on To Be The Man where he claims that he's seen Bradshaw bully wrestlers into crying. In his words, Flair has seen guys "melt down personally, melt down and cry. They were so humiliated." However, Flair clarified that he and JBL haven't had a falling out and he considers himself "lucky" that the star was always nice to him. Still, Flair isn't backing down on his stance anytime soon.

The WWE and JBL have yet to respond to Flair's outburst.
