Ric Flair files trademark for ‘The Man’

What’s the Nature Boy up to?

Hall of Famer “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair has a reputation for being the dirtiest player in the game when it comes to wrestling. Now it looks like that reputation may be creeping into his life outside the squared circle.

PWInsider reports that Flair has filed a trademark for rights to “The Man” on wrestling and merchandise purposes. The LLC owned by Flair filed the trademark on August 26. It reads:

Entertainment services, namely, wrestling exhibitions, live appearances and performances by a professional wrestler and entertainer rendered live and through broadcast media, namely, television and radio, and via the internet or commercial online service; providing wrestling news and information via a global computer network; Providing information in the fields of sports and entertainment via an online community portal; Providing a website in the field of sports entertainment; Fan club services; organizing and staging entertainment events with wrestling fan club members; Providing online newsletters in the fields of sports entertainment; Online journals, namely, blogs, in the fields of sports entertainment.

So why exactly is this problematic? You may want to ask WWE RAW Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch — aka “The Man.” In the summer of 2018, Lynch reinvented her character and dubbed herself “The Man,” having since become synonymous with the moniker. WWE has released quite a bit of merchandise for their RAW Women’s Champion and she is seen by many as the best female wrestler in wrestling today.

Thus it’s highly likely WWE and Becky Lynch will take serious issue with Flair’s filing.
