Tampa-based wrestling legend Ric Flair—the stylin', profilin', limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin' n' dealin' son of a gun—has had just about enough of the media's ongoing interest with Tom Brady's personal life.

"I Would Suggest EVERYONE Get Off [Tom Brady's] Ass And Applaud Him!!," said the 16 time WWE world champion in a Sunday evening Instagram post. "His Personal Life Is His Business!! NOT YOURS! To Judge, Comment On, Or Laugh About Makes You All Look Bad!!! So Disrespectful [ESPN]! He’s The GOAT!"
It's unclear what part of ESPN's coverage got Flair so upset.  But for some context, yesterday afternoon the GOAT squeaked out an "ugly one" against The Saints after performing a Tombstone Piledriver on an unsuspecting tablet.
This, combined with the missed practices and ongoing media speculation that Brady's marriage with supermodel Gisele Bündchen is in a Figure Four Leg Lock, as well as reports that the couple has been "living apart for more than a month," has fueled plenty of inane chatter from ESPN and most "sports talk guys" over the last few weeks.
