Ric Flair Sent A Cease And Desist To McDonald's Over 'Wooooo' Commercial

Ric Flair put the legal smackdown on Ronald McDonald

Ric Flair is notoriously protective of his trademarks. 

The two-time WWE Hall of Famer had a falling out with WWE and Paul 'Triple H' Levesque in recent years due to Becky Lynch's use of the phrase 'The Man', with the WWE Hall of Famer now revealing how he put the figure-four on fast food giant McDonald's. 

Speaking with Chris Van Vliet on Insight, 'The Nature Boy' revealed that he sent McDonald's a cease and desist for using his cry of 'Wooooo!':

"Five o's. It's trademarked with five o's, but I can enforce too", Flair said.

"Like McDonald's did one where the guy went 'Woo!' We went right to McDonald's and shut it down, rather than put me in the commercial, or pay me. I don't know what it cost them to shoot down a commercial that… a minute-long commercial has to cost them millions to put together, based on my knowledge of it, especially with the production value," added Flair.

'Slick Ric' might be up for a courtroom showdown, but he has no plans for a return to the wrestling ring.
