TNA IMPACT WRESTLING Star Ric Flair® to Attend WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

Flair Confirms He Will be Present in Miami When the Four Horsemen Receive Their Hall of Fame Honor


Ric FlairCHARLOTTE, NC – (March 27, 2012) International celebrity the Nature Boy® Ric Flair is set to become the only wrestler in history to be inducted into the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Hall of Fame twice. Flair’s dominant 1980s wrestling group, the Four Horsemen, known to be the greatest in ring performers of all time, will be granted their seat in the Hall of Fame at a ceremony in Miami, FL on March 31st, the day before Wrestlemania XXVIII. Flair will be inducted along-side fellow members of the Four Horsemen: Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham, and J.J. Dillon.

The news of Flair’s second induction was followed by a firestorm of controversy. Questions flew about whether Flair would attend the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony as he is currently under contract with Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling. Understanding what a huge honor this is for Flair, TNA is graciously supporting him in the decision to attend the Hall of Fame ceremony alongside his fellow inductees. “Being inducted once was one of the greatest accomplishments of my career, so I’m humbled and honored to be recognized again. I wouldn’t miss the ceremony for the world,” says Flair.

TNA President Dixie Carter says, “We are proud of Ric’s many accomplishments and contributions he has made to the world of professional wrestling and beyond. We wish to congratulate him on yet another honor he truly deserves.”

Flair, a 16-time World Heavyweight Champion, was inducted individually into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2008. On becoming a two-time inductee his agent Melinda Morris Zanoni of Legacy Talent and Entertainment says, “We are all so proud to be watching Ric continue to make history. There will never be an athlete more deserving of wearing two Hall of Fame rings than Ric Flair.”

Ric Flair® Fuels New Energy and Protein Drinks


Ric FlairFlair Becomes Ambassador for Fuel in a Bottle™, the Newest Creation by BYB Brands

CHARLOTTE, NC – (January 27, 2012)   World famous  Hall of Fame wrestler Ric Flair has been named Brand Ambassador for a new brand of Energy and Protein power shots, Fuel in a Bottle ™.

BYB Brands has chosen the international sports icon, Nature Boy®, to be the spokesman of the new ready-to-drink Energy and Protein shots, which will be introduced in early March and distributed by Coca-Cola Consolidated.

“Ric Flair can now easily energize his famous limousine-ridin’, jet-flyin’, kiss-stealin’, wheelin’-dealin’™ lifestyle with Fuel in a Bottle,” said BYB Brands president Norm George. “We are excited about the partnership with Ric. His distinctive energy and dynamism make him the perfect ambassador for our Fuel in a Bottle power shots.”


Fuel in a Bottle power shots are the only ready-to-drink shots that offer the two types of fuel consumers need for their day — Energy and Protein.  Fuel in a Bottle Energy shot provides a quick energy boost in convenient 2-ounce liquid form.  It is packed with B Vitamins, is sugar free and has zero calories.  Fuel in a Bottle Protein shot is loaded with 25g of high quality protein and essential amino acids that your body needs — in a 2.5 ounce power shot — eliminating the hassle of messy protein powders or shakes.  Both varieties of Fuel in a Bottle allow consumers to ‘Recharge in minutes.  Run stronger for hours.’™ 

“We are excited about Fuel in a Bottle because it offers two different types of high-quality fuel people are looking for at an amazing value price,” says BYB President Norm George. 

“These products are unlike anything else on the market.  It’s really important to me to live an active, healthy lifestyle so having the convenience of both Fuel in a Bottle Energy shot that gives me an energy boost, and Fuel in a Bottle Protein shot that gives me the protein I need, is amazing!” says Flair.  “And what’s even better, they taste great! WOOOOO!™”

Fuel in a Bottle Energy and Fuel in a Bottle Protein will be available through the Southeastern United States in early March.  They will be sold in convenience retail, health-food stores, and other specialty retail outlets.  Fuel in a Bottle power shots are the latest products rolled out by BYB Brands. The company’s other beverages include Tum-E Yummies Fruit Flavored Drinks, Country Breeze Tea and Bean and Body Coffee.

According to Flair’s agent at Legacy Talent and Entertainment, Flair will support Fuel in a Bottle by licensing his image to market the product, shooting a TV commercial and voicing radio ads. “We think Ric’s fans will love the ad campaigns and Fuel in a Bottle shots,” says CEO Melinda Morris Zanoni.
