This comes at a time where Flair has been going up against WWE over the moniker, ‘The Man.’ The former WWE Champion feels that he should receive a royalty from the company because WWE RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has been using it on television for a while now.

Flair has made it known that he doesn’t have anything against Lynch for doing so as she’s been using it on television since her feud with his daughter last year. The legendary pro wrestler has tried to trademark the term.

Flair is also slated to appear on SmackDown 20th Anniversary show on October 4th that will serve as the premiere show on FOX.

Speaking of Flair, he made an appearance in the “Laundry on Sundays” campaign for Tide. SNL’s Kenan Thompson was the featured star of the two-minute spot. You can see that here:
