Estate of William Shakespeare sues Ric Flair for using wooEstate of William Shakespeare has sued Ric Flair for using “woo” claiming Ric Flair coined the term from the Bard’s very memorable turns of phrase.

Retired sports-entertainer Ric Flair is in legal hot water once again after the estate of William Shakespeare filed a lawsuit alleging that Ric Flair’s trademark holler of “woo” is an “unauthorized and egregious misuse” of a term coined by the playwright nearly 500 years ago.

Lawyers on behalf of William Shakespeare’s estate allege that Flair’s “incessant, crow-like” use of the term woo is “tantamount to plagiarizing” the Bard’s most memorable turns of phrase, such as:

“Thou and I are too wise to woo peaceably.” Much Ado About Nothing
“And woo her with some spirit when she comes.” The Taming of the Shrew
“Wooing, wedding, and repenting is as a Scotch jig, a measure, and a cinque-pace:

the first suit is hot and hasty like a Scotch jig.” Much Ado About Nothing

The lawsuit comes at a particularly ironic time for Flair, given that the so-called Nature Boy, Ric Flair is himself threatening to sue World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) due to Becky Lynch’s use of the catch-phrase: “To be the man, you’ve got to beat the man.”

Even that particular phrase, however, is a “deliberate and unapproved bowdlerization” of a Shakespearean verse, the lawyers allege, pointing to a famous line from King Lear: “Should thou seeketh to become the man, dost thou not first beat the man?” (Chapter III, Verse 16).

Flair is also facing a class-action lawsuit from riders who insist that his Space Mountain ride is decrepit, creepy, and finishes much too quickly.
