The 12 Days of Jesus H. Christmas: Day 1 – Ric Flair still can’t keep his finances straight

Minutes later, Flair was asking the lottery photographer for an advance on a paycheck he'd be getting in a half hour.

(For the 12 days leading up to Christmas, Stunt Granny will relive with you the 12 most head-slapping, dipshitty stories of 2011, the things that made us wonder why we still watch professional wrestling and support some of these dingbats. Let’s begin with the 1,700-time world champion, beloved unconditionally and irrevocably by all – named Mark Madden – and a guy willing to give you the shirt off his back, for about $6,000 and a ride to the courthouse… Ric Flair!)

(Originally posted January 26, 2011) According to Prowrestling.net, Ric Flair has his mind on his money and his money on his mind. During TNA’s UK tour, Flair asked TNA’s tour manager for a “draw,” or an advance on his paycheck, and when the request was denied, Flair stormed off and went home. You may recall stories from Flair’s WWE Hall of Fame acceptance speech that started the same way, with him asking Arnold Skaaland for a draw. But those stories continued with him getting the draw and spending it all, and the stories ended with Flair in financial ruin with a trail of failed marriages behind him. So stomp your feet and pout if you will, Nature Boy, but TNA may have just kept an alimony payment in your pocket. Now go feverishly scratch some lottery tickets, you hillbilly at heart. -Eric
