An attendant on WWE’s Plane Ride From Hell recounted sexual assault allegations she made against Ric Flair on the flight.
A flight attendant on the Plane Ride From Hell recounted the allegations of sexual assault she made against Ric Flair on Dark Side of the Ring.
Dark Side of the Ring returned for the second half of season three this week. The series restarted with perhaps the most in-depth look at the infamous Plane Ride From Hell ever put together. Bits and pieces of what happened have been told over the years, but no one has ever put the whole thing together like this. Not to mention the accounts from wrestlers who were on the aircraft.
Perhaps the most interesting retelling came from Heidi Doyle, a flight attendant on the plane for that trip. Doyle had a torrid time on the flight, even alleging that she was sexually assaulted by Ric Flair at one point. Flair was walking up and down the plane in nothing but a robe. The Hall of Famer had the robe open, exposing himself to everyone else on the flight.
While his peers had come to expect that kind of behavior, as is made clear by Tommy Dreamer, Doyle was understandably pretty shocked. The attendant claims her flight went from bad to worse when Flair showed up in the galley, robe still open, and pushed her up against a door. “He had me up against the back door, and I couldn’t move. I couldn’t get away from him,” Doyle said.
“He was spinning around his penis and he wanted me to touch it. He took my hand and put it on him.” Flair pre-empted the premiere of the episode by touching upon what might come up during an episode of Oral Sessions recently. “We’ll see how it plays out because I was there and I don’t care whose name I gotta drop if the heat falls on me,” Flair said to Renee Paquette.
Flair has denied these allegations before in the past, as was highlighted on the show even though he wasn’t a part of it. Doyle and another attendant on the flight took legal action against WWE for what happened. Both lawsuits were settled out of court. Flair told Paquette he would be on her podcast again after the episode airs to respond to whatever has been said, so be on the lookout for that and his retort.
