*facepalm* 
That'd be Anthrax would did "I'm the Man" in 1987 (and they claim they actually wrote it in 1984).

To be fair, though, the original idea was to get the Beastie Boys to help them do it in 1987. The two bands eventually teamed up to do a re-mix of "I'm the Man" in 1991 for Anthax's "Attack of the Killer B's "album.

Of course, the original "I'm the Man" was based off a scene from the Rodney Dangerfield flick, Easy Money. "I'm the man. I'm bad. I'm so bad I should be in detention".

But you knew all that and were just testing me to see if I knew it. Well done.

Even when Ric is senile and shit faced, Sid has half the brain Flair has. If ya don't believe me, just ask the big man who rules the world himself.


There's no doubt in my mind that Ric wants to sign a contract with AEW as an on air character. So in Ric's mind, he has nothing to lose, even though he kinda does. Obviously Vince and Trips will take him back, especially just to spite AEW if nothing else. But I do honestly think Charlotte is stuck in the middle of this unfortunate situation.


If Flair is not under a WWE contract, he'll be back on TNT soon.

Doesn't matter, the trademark is not related to pro wrestling.

Stan Hansen would give Flair, Musial and Stasiak a Lariat for that

The Undertaker was on College Football Gameday earlier and proclaimed Ric Flair THE MAN!

I flipped on the network today for the first time in a long time and it had a commercial on it promoting something i can’t recall at the moment and basically it was Austin and hogan talking about Becky saying she was the man and then Austin, hogan, Flair, Bret and Shawn basically say they were the man of their era. Is this an old commercial?

I didn't see it yet. Where can I find it on the Network? Is it just a bumper?

I honestly get the feeling that Flair's contract with WWE lapsed and he's grasping for money. He was signed to a talent contract to manage Charlotte and they pulled him from the gig when he kissed one of the girls at ringside. I'm guessing that contract didn't roll over and he's pulling a SSBG and crapping on WWE because he's not getting a paycheck. That and the whole Adidas thing makes me believe that like AA and Tully, you may see Flair on TNT in a few weeks.

After what Flair did with Hogan's Austalian tour and then TNA after the huge sendoff WWE gave him, I don't doubt he'll go to AEW in a heartbeat.  And this time, I really hope WWE never takes him back.  But make no mistake about it, with the SJW crowd running AEW, Flair is not going to fit in and other than a few special appearances because TNT will want his name and Cody probably feels obligated to give him a paycheck because of his father, I don't see him being used regularly or making all that much money from them.  And that relationship will end quickly and badly.  Flair and those kids will not get along for long.  He'll find out that Nyla Rose is a tranny and make a comment and wind up being cancelled or something. Flair is at the point now where he desperately needs to step away and let absence make the heart grow fonder for him, because I feel like he's been wearing out his welcome with increasing regularity despite the fact that everyone wants to love him because of who he was in 1985.

I honestly didn't know until recently.  It's not like wrestling hasn't been littered with monster chicks that look similar over the decades.
