When wrestlers shill: Ric Flair for CarShield (2021)

 WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is doing a series of ads for CarShield, which has previously employed the likes of ESPN icon Chris Berman and rapper-actor Ice T (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit; now shilling for Tide with another WWE Hall of Famer, Stone Cold Steve Austin), and hockey player Ryan O'Reilly.

Ric is either solo or other wrestling personalities, such as AEW's Peter Avalon and NWA announcer David Marquez, join him. In this case, NXT's L. A. Knight (Shaun Rickert, pka Eli Drake with NWA & Impact), dressed as the Overcharger, shares the ring and screen with the Nature Boy.

Funny how this spot started turning up shortly after Knight debuted in NXT.
