Ric Flair Changes Management Companies
Ric Flair, who has been hospitalized with a myriad of health issues since last month, announced yesterday via Twitter that he had parted ways with his management company.
As of Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017, I have parted ways with Melinda Morris Zanoni and Legacy Talent Entertainment, LLC. I Will Announce New Representation Tomorrow. I’m looking forward to the new beginning and the great opportunities that await me. WOOOOO!
There had been some criticism from many quarters on how his management team dealt with his health issues and updates on social media last month, so that may have played a role in Flair deciding to change companies.
Today, he announced that he will be managed by Get Engaged Media.
