Ric Flair has said that he has signed a new deal with Adidas although he did not elaborate on what that includes.
Flair told TMZ.COM that Adidas thinks he’s “The Man” and offered him a deal. “I signed a deal with them, and we’re fixin’ to make Nike the second brand. It’s not gonna be Air Jordan anymore, it’s gonna be Air Flair…and I can’t jump,” Flair said.
The two-time WWE Hall of Famer did drop a hint that it will somewhat involve working with a couple of NBA stars, namedropping Damian Lillard of the Portland Trailblazers and James Harden of the Houston Rockets.
“Nike’s gonna be [outta here]. We’re gonna fire a shot over Phil Knight’s bow,” he added, referring to the Nike Co-founder and Chairman.
