After claiming he was wrongfully tossed from a Florida restaurant over the weekend, footage of Ric Flair’s altercation with the establishment’s staff has emerged.

On Sunday, “Nature Boy” Ric Flair took to his X account and claimed he was the victim of horrible customer service at Piesanos, an Italian-themed restaurant in Gainsville, Florida, and was unfairly told to leave after being gracious with fellow patrons.

“I Spent $1500 At [Piesanos] To Be Disrespected More Than I Ever Have In My Entire Life,” Flair wrote. “After Taking 20 Pictures With Customers And Staff, I Was Asked To Leave Because Of An Issue I Had With The Kitchen Manager Taking Too Long In The Bathroom. I Would Highly Recommend That Anyone Who Wants To Enjoy A Relaxing Time In Gainesville At A Nice Restaurant To Never Visit This Place! WOOOOO!”

In response to the allegation by the WWE Hall-of-Famer, Piesanos co-owner Jerry Roberts said in a statement: “We have reviewed video of the incident that took place recently at our restaurant. It is clear, our team worked professionally to ensure the safety of guests and staff. We have thanked our team for their professionalism. We are proud of how they responded to this situation using and displaying our team values.”

Following the response, a video of the incident has hit social media and can be viewed above. In it, Ric Flair is clearly irate with a specific member of the staff working behind the bar. The Piesanos worker is talking calmly but does keep responding to the wrestling legend to deny his claims of mistreatment after he was apparently cut off from any further alcoholic beverages.

Flair then goes on to interact with another member of the restaurant’s staff and indicates that he has no ill will toward her and boldly states, “Ma’am, I’m going to give you a $1,000 tip just to say to him, kiss my ass.”
