Ric Flair on “the Man” Trademark
Flair also spoke to TMZ recently about the ongoing conflict he has with WWE over “the Man” trademark. During the interview, Flair said he believes the reason WWE doesn’t own a trademark for “the Man” is because it would be too close to his.
“The reason they don’t have it, my understanding is the reason they don’t have it is because it’s too close to mine,” Flair said. “I’ve been saying ‘To be the Man’ which I have trademarked, I wrote a book “To Be The Man.’”
