Flight From Hell II: The Lawsuit

Ric Flair, Scott Hall, Dustin Runnels (Goldust), and WWE are all being sued for sexual harassment by a flight attendant in Arizona's Maricopa County. The suit claims that the wrestlers displayed "extreme and outrageous behavior" during a return flight from England on May 5th, 2002.

 

The suit claims that Flair wore only a jeweled cape during the flight, flashed his penis, and forced a flight attendant to touch it. It claims that Hall told a flight attendant to perform oral sex on him and licked the face of another attendant. Finally it claims that Runnels grabbed an attendant and told her they would have sex. The suit also claims that other wrestlers groped attendants during the flight.

 

The flight was on a chartered luxary airplane from SportsJet. SportsJet provides flights for sports teams, rock stars, and other athletes.

 

The "flight from hell" is known as such due to the countless problems that occured during it. The flight was from the U.K. back to the United States following WWE's British PPV event. The wrestlers apparently got very drunk, partly due to the flight being delayed, and behaving very poorly.

 

In addition to the sexual harassment charges, the fight featured an infamous brawl between the late Curt Hennig and Brock Lesnar. The brawl had to be broken up by Triple H, Paul Heyman, and others. Hennig was released from WWE a short time later.

 

Also as reported back in 2002, Runnels apparently serenaded his ex-wife Terri Runnels on the flight until being told to stop by Jim Ross. Runnels was also released a few months later.

 

Michael Hayes and Bradshaw also got into a physical altercation on the flight. Hayes also had his mullet cut off while he was sleeping (thought to be by Sean "X-Pac" Waltman).

 

Scott Hall, named in the sexual harassment suit, was also released from WWE shortly after the "flight from hell."

 

Jim Ross even acknowledged the flight in his WWE.com column, saying that the wrestlers "consumed too much alcohol and consequently acted like children whose parents were away and left the liquor cabinet unlocked."

Boo hoo.... what a nasty nasty man Flair is.

 

She should be happy that she got to touch the dirtiest willy in the game!

 

And I'd love to be an air hostess watching a Brock v Hennig shoot fight... as long as the plane wasn't in any danger :)

WRESTLING SUPERSTARS ACCUSED OF SEX ATTACK Air hostesses `groped'

 

By Brendan Mcginty

 

 

 

SUPERSTAR wrestlers have been accused of sexually assaulting two air stewardesses as they travelled home from a sell-out Scottish show.

 

Several of the millionaire grapplers including 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair face claims that the flight attendants were groped and subjected to obscene remarks.

 

The attacks are alleged to have happened as the World Wrestling Entertainment stars flew back from a sell-out Smackdown show in Glasgow's SECC.

 

The flight attendants claim Flair lifted his trademark jewelled cape and indecently exposed himself.

 

Both women also say they were sexually assaulted by Flair and that his colleague Scott 'Razor Ramon' Hall made a string of obscene and suggestive remarks.

 

They further claimed Dustin 'Goldust' Runnels groped both of them.

 

The stewardesses said that the wrestlers had been allowed to drink alcohol on the flight a Luxury Air 757 charter.

 

Yet there had been trouble on previous flights when wrestlers had been allowed access to booze.

 

Other unnamed wrestlers are accused of grabbing the flight attendants' breasts and giving them needles to dispose of.

 

Both women, who live in Phoenix, Arizona, are suing the WWE the new name for the World Wrestling Federation through the US Superior Court.

 

The alleged assaults happened last year but claims have just been filed.

 

The lawsuit states: 'At the time ofAccused: the incidents described below the plaintiffs were working as flight attendants on a Luxury Air 757 that was being chartered by defendant WWE.

 

'On the return flight to the United States, plaintiffs and others were sexually assaulted by defendants Flair, Hall and Runnels and other WWE wrestlers.'

 

A spokesman for WWE in the UK declined to make any comment. Flair is one of the most popular sportsman in the US.

 

He is a legend in his home state of North Carolina and has been a WWE star for more than five years.

 

WWE shows regularly sell-out across the world, playing to crowds of around 10,000 and a world TV audience of billions. Fans across the world idolise the stars.

 

TV rights and ticket sales, along with spin-offs including computer games, have turned WWE into a multi-billion dollar business.

 

Other merchandising includes T-shirts, baseball caps and videos featuring stars such as The Rock who was not involved in the alleged incidents.

I was killing myself laughing at this when I saw it this morning.

 

The Sunday Mail have obviously just taken the story straight from a wrestling site, used it for a few lines of material and filled the rest of the article up with mince about WWE.

 

"WWE shows regularly sell-out across the world, playing to crowds of around 10,000 and a world TV audience of billions. Fans across the world idolise the stars.

WOW! Hold the presses! What a scoop!

 

Booooooring. I hate when mainstream news outlets cover wrestling and give it less respect than what Jordan did at a London club at the weekend or what the Cheeky Girls will do next.

Its very true that when ever a UK news paper runs a article on a WWE related story either they call the compnay by the wromg name, refer to the wrestlersby the wrong name, and randomly make up things as they go along.
