That’s a weird hill to fight on. There are all kinds of wins and accomplishments in WWE, with some of the company’s championships being among the most known in the wrestling world. It can mean a lot for a wrestler to win one of those titles, but now we are hearing about a situation where one wrestler refused to be seen with his title and even paid thousands of dollars to avoid having to do so.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Ouch: Update On Injured WWE Star, How Long He Will Be Out Of Action

Ric Flair won the Intercontinental Title at Unforgiven 2005 and went on to hold it for about five months. During the latest episode of his To Be The Man podcast, Flair talked about how WWE does not have an official photo of him with the title. Flair refused to take a photo with the title as champion and was fined $5,000 as a result. When fined, Flair said that WWE had a talent development problem if they had to fine a 55 year old man for not taking a photo with the title. Flair did not make it clear why he would not pose for a photo holding the belt.

Flair did have a nice reign. Check out his time with the title:

Opinion: This is one of those confusing stories, as unless Flair saw the Intercontinental Title as beneath him, wouldn’t it be a heck of a lot easier to just take a picture than lost five thousand dollars? At the same time, it is a little strange for Flair to imply that he did not need to be the champion in the first place. I could go for some more context for this, as just taking a picture is not the hardest thing to ask.

What do you think of the situation? What is the best title reign of Flair’s career? Let us know in the comments below.
