“He can’t be stopped from doing so in states that don’t have athletic commissions and licensing protocols, but insurance companies can step in and refuse to issue a bond to a promotion that books him. Simply put, Ric Flair returning to the ring is not wise. He’s 73, in poor health, an alcoholic, and has a pacemaker installed,” Cruise added.

Further, Chris Cruise revealed the email that he has sent the Maryland State Athletic Commission. He asked the Maryland State Athletic Commission to deny Flair a license. And according to him, this could help to keep Ric Flair alive.
