Tommy Dreamer isn’t the only member of the wrestling world who is seeing real world consequences in the wake of the airing of the “Plane Ride from Hell” episode of the Dark Side of the Ring series on VICE TV last night.

Indeed, PW Insider reports that Ric Flair, who was accused of sexually harassing and assaulting a flight attendant, has had an ad campaign of his put on pause by the agency in charge of it. They got the following statement on the matter:

“We take these matters very seriously. As of right now, we are pausing the campaign and we will do our due diligence.”

Pending an investigation, the report states, the commercial will be pulled from the air and there is currently no timetable for them to return.

This is just the first domino to fall for Flair, who has publicly denied any wrongdoing and promised on Renee Paquette’s podcast to address the situation in the future if need be.
