WWE/RIC FLAIR: Ric Flair's former managers lash back, calling him "despicable liar" (TMZ.com)

Posted on 11/17/117 by Casey Carver

Ric Flair's management company says the wrestling legend is
lying through his teeth in his lawsuit -- claiming
allegations they stole his "30 for 30" money are "blatant

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Flair sued Legacy Talent
claiming they hid a fortune in payments he was supposed to
get from several projects -- including $25k for the recent
ESPN documentary on his life.

But Legacy says Flair's allegations are "baseless and
defamatory" -- and they're respectfully BLASTING the guy in
a statement to TMZ Sports.

"Ric Flair has always been known to be dramatic and looking
desperately for the spotlight. That's fine as a wrestler but
it is despicable when he blatantly lies," Legacy says.

"As anyone who read [the Ric Flair Grantland article] knows,
Ric has always left a trail of destruction in his wake
whether it be from his ex wives, the IRS, State Departments
of Revenue, creditors, or from his former business partners
and friends... the debris is everywhere.

"Our client wishes Flair nothing but the best and is sad
that things have come to this after over a decade of hard
work and incredible results for their client."

As for the explanation for the finances ... Legacy says:

"Our client provided Flair an accounting of funds as they
always did throughout their representation. Flair then
demanded funds that belonged to buyers be released from
trust that he had not yet earned and our client would not be
bullied into doing anything unethical. In reality the
$37,000 in dispute are in his management companys trust
account while we were working out a settlement on the sums
of money owed our client from deals and money Flair hid from
his management."
