WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair will not appear at the Carolina Panthers home playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers this weekend following the controversy that has stemmed from his appearance for the 49ers on Saturday. "When the 49ers reached out and WWE asked Ric to jet up there, of course he said yes,” says Melinda Morris Zanoni, Flair’s agent at Legacy Talent and Entertainment, stated in a press release. "And he’s friends with a bunch of the 49ers just like he is with the Panthers, Packers, and many other NFL players. But no, Ric does not intend on attending the Panthers vs. 49ers game this weekend.”

Flair also commented on the matter: “What can I say? I’ve always been a very good heel!" Read the full press release at

Powell's POV: The press release notes that Flair has received death threats from some angry Panthers fans. I'm sure most are just online blowhards, but I suppose all it takes is one lunatic.
