Maybe that can help things. There are all kinds of stories in the history of wrestling and some of them are a lot better than others. You often hear stories of wrestlers doing good things, but unfortunately you hear bad stories all the more often. Some of these have been told on television, which was the case last week. Now though, one of the people involved has had to issue an apology.
The most recent episode of Dark Side of the Ring focused on the infamous Plane Ride From Hell. Back in 2002, a group of WWE stars flew on a transatlantic flight after a European tour. What followed was quite the mess, with all kinds of alcohol being consumed and wrestlers doing some rather bad things. One such thing in particular went further than the rest and now a wrestler is having to apologize for his comments about the situation.
During this week’s show, flight attendant Heidi Doyle spoke about Ric Flair forcing her to touch his genitals during the flight. Tommy Dreamer dismissed the comments and compared the allegations to his hair. Dreamer was suspended from Impact Wrestling as a result and has issued an apology to PWInsider.com. In his apology, Dreamer said that he did not mean to offend anyone and that he did not condone sexual misconduct while saying he was sorry. There is no word on when Dreamer will return to Impact Wrestling.
This is rather serious. Check out some rather random and unrelated wrestling moments:
Opinion: This is one of those things that is not likely to go well whatsoever and I’m not sure when or if we’ll be seeing Dreamer again. He has been around for a very long time but there are some things that are going beyond anything acceptable. Dreamer came off as horrible here and an apology is only going to get him so far. What he said was not going to go well in any circumstances and this is about the least he can do.
What do you think of Dreamer’s apology? When will he appear in another wrestling promotion? Let us know in the comments below.
