Tommy Dreamer: “I am so sorry”

Sep 19, 2021 - by Steve Gerweck

Tommy Dreamer commented publicly for the first time since the explosive episode of the Plane Ride From Hell on Dark Side of the Ring aired on Thursday.

Dreamer, who defended Ric Flair’s actions on the flight, was suspended by Impact Wrestling indefinitely the day after the show aired following a huge uproar on social media.

“Regarding my comments on Dark Side of the Ring, it was never my intention to offend, hurt or victim shame anyone. I understand my comments were insensitive and could trigger emotions in someone’s own personal past,” Dreamer wrote. “I do not condone sexual misconduct of any kind. I apologize to anyone I offended. From the bottom of my heart I am so sorry.”

In a statement on Friday, Impact Wrestling said that the views expressed by Dreamer in the interview are completely unacceptable and he was suspended with immediate effect pending further action.

During the episode of Dark Side of the Ring, Heidi Doyle accused Flair of sexually harassing her mid-flight, forcing himself on her, and making her touch his genitals. Dreamer said that Flair was just “stylin’ and profilin’” and never imposed any sexual stuff on anyone. “Obviously, somebody took offense to it,” Dreamer said bluntly, adding that his ponytail probably offends someone as well.

    When does victimhood become the official currency of the United States? I am about to start cashing in and demanding apologies. First, that hair of yours, pony boy! You are appropriating womxnhood by sporting longer hair, and that makes you a misogynist pig. Apologize!

    Not a good look. He didnt do the deed though and has been a role model for the sport for decades. The cancel culture crowd needs to keep that in mind. This shouldn’t define him. He didn’t hear her comments as far as we know. He also may not have seen what happened 100 percent. I hope the victim has peace now. She deserves it.

    He spoke his mind, and he was actually there. Who’s to say he didn’t see everything that happened? Also, who’s to say ol’ girl didn’t exaggerate because she knew she could get a quick payday? There’s a huge difference in flashing someone and actually grabbing their hand to try and make them touch your junk. Dreamer had a point when he said if things happened like ol’ girl said, then why DIDN’T she prosecute to the fullest extent of the law? I just can’t see anyone, much less Flair doing what she claimed he did. I can see him doing what the boys say he did lol, but not grabbing at ol’ girl and trying to make her touch his junk – which she claimed apparently she DID touch it. Why not scream, get loud, etc.? She could have slapped him… a LOT of different things could have been done by her other that what supposedly happened. But, none of us were there, so we would never know. But Dreamer and Flair would – because they WERE there – and both have said she is lying. Dreamer also should have never been suspended for what he said, Impact already knew about his comments and they only suspended him to cater to a few jagoffs bitching about him defending Flair. If they really were against him that much they would have suspended him back when they first learned about his comments.
