American wrestling is invading Australia with a 'Flair.'
Ric Flair, a Charlotte resident, appeared to leave Hulk Hogan battered and bruised after a bloody brawl with at a media conference in Sydney.
The event, to promote a wrestling tour later this month, seemed to veer out of control when Hogan and Flair launched into a full-scale brawl.
The Australian media, possibly unaware of the staged history of American pro wrestling, were shocked when Hogan began bleeding profusely from the head and was unable to get to his feet.
Flair used his belt to whip anyone within range.
The Daily Telegraph reports one photographer had their equipment broken when Flair threw a table off the stage and into the press.
