Ric Flair treated for a cut on his hand at Boston airport amidst reports of strange behavior

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Earlier this morning, people at Boston's Logan International Airport began talking about Ric Flair on social media.

Reports were that he was in a bar and behaving erratically. The assumption was he intoxicated, and descriptions of his actions as loud and obnoxious fit with that. Many then said he was barred from boarding his flight.

TMZ, however, refutes that report. They spoke to an airport police sergeant who told them Naitch was not drunk and boarded his flight.

The police were called to his gate because they received reports of a "man with a cut on his hand". Medical personnel treated Flair for the cut, deemed him to not be intoxicated (the reports don't state whether or not he had any alcohol in his system or if he was just not legally drunk) and he got on his plane.

No word on how he cut his hand, although TMZ says they're working on discovering that.

Flair's agent, Melinda Morris Zanoni, told TMZ:

Ric has been working every day around the clock, including internationally, for a month straight and has injuries on his hand that were being looked into this morning.

While it is true Ric Flair and his buddies have been keeping airport bars in business since the 70s that was not the case at all in Boston. I just hung up with Ric, he is already on the flight and all is good.

This also comes after Flair told Natalya to "kill herself" during a promo at the SmackDown taping in Manchester, New Hampshire last night, which you can see below.

It was widely reported as a flub that would be edited out of broadcasts, and written off as the Nature Boy getting a little too heated when responding to Natty's claims that her Uncle Bret could handle Ric at Payback during her Women's title match against Charlotte, Flair's daughter.

That situation is getting even more scrutiny today in light of the reports out of Boston.
