NFL quarterback legend Tom Brady made headlines for his apparent outburst during a recent game vs. the New Orleans Saints, where Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers appeared to struggle. Brady, however, has the full support of two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, who voiced his displeasure at ESPN’s handling of the situation.
Writing on Twitter, ‘The Nature Boy’ slammed ESPN’s coverage. They made remarks regarding Tom Brady’s personal life, which has seen reported issues in his marriage to supermodel Gisele Bundchen:
“I Would Suggest EVERYONE Get Off @TomBrady’s A** And Applaud Him!! His Personal Life Is His Business!! NOT YOURS! To Judge, Comment On, Or Laugh About Makes You All Look Bad!!! So Disrespectful @espn! He’s The GOAT!”

Ric Flair Has Been Quick To Call People Out
It’s not just ESPN that felt the full wrath of Ric Flair. ‘The Dirtiest Player in the Game’ also recently called out fellow WWE Hall of Famer John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield for historical accusations of bullying. Flair went as far as to question why JBL was in the Hall of Fame in the first place:
“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 f*cking brutal. but he’s rewarded with a [place in the] 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.”
Ric Flair wrestled what is believed to have been his final match in history, teaming with Andrade El Idolo in a victory over Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal on the divisive Ric Flair’s Last Match card on July 31.
