To get his Atlanta Falcons fired up before their NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers, WWE Hall of Famer and 16-time world champion Ric Flair gave a pep talk to the team in a Facebook video.

It wasn’t on the level of elbow dropping a book or stripping down to his boxers in the middle of a wrestling ring but it was a decent promo.

The issue is that Flair lives in Charlotte, North Carolina and has lived there for decades. And the fact that he is openly rooting for a rival of the Carolina Panthers, who play in Charlotte, it has rubbed many people the wrong way. This includes Panthers defensive end Charles Johnson.

Johnson took notable offense and called Flair out, starting an argument between the two.
