I Need Protection from My

Drunk Glass-Wielding Wife!!

's estranged wife Jackie is a vicious alcoholic who has physically beaten him several times -- once even assaulting him with a glass object -- so says Ric, and now he's asking a judge for a protective order.

Ric filed docs in response to his wife's legal separation papers -- calling Jackie "cruel" and "barbarous," and claiming she has endangered his life in drunken fits of rage ... multiple times throughout their marriage.

In the docs, Ric says Jackie went after him -- back in February 2010 -- with a glass object and "shattered it over his forehead, cutting him severely, and requiring medical attention."

Ric also claims Jackie -- his 4th wife -- was once arrested for DUI with a blood alcohol level of .22  ... nearly three times the legal limit.

Even though they've been separated since December ... Ric says he's still terrified of his estranged wife, and is now asking the court for a domestic violence protective order.

He also wants to void a separation agreement he signed in October -- in which he promised to pay Jackie tens of thousands of dollars.

Ric claims Jackie's badmouthing -- she called him a cheating scumbag -- cost him lucrative performance and endorsement contracts, and now it's impossible for him to make the payments.

We reached out to Jackie ... who tells us, the allegations are 100% false. And says Rick is using them as cheap trick to "avoid paying her the money to which she is entitled."

It takes a true gentlemen to take such abuse from a woman and still not hurt her back.

Jerk. A restraining order....NOW? Listen, I know that women batter men, and should have the same access to protection. But this is the kind of abuse of the system that makes restraining orders nearly worthless these days. Somewhere a person will lose their life to an ex today. That BOTH these losers abuse the system this way makes a person want to go Dorner on BOTH their butts.

Have you seen Ric Flairs forehead? He's bladed so many times in his career that its all scar tissue. I don't think she even needed to use glass to bust him open. A feather probably would have done it.

Your comments on here are not even valid if you were not alive in the 70's and 80's and have no knowledge of this mans history of one of the greatest people in this industry. The age of respect ended in the 90's.

That's when the age of entitlement came. That's when we all want to be the judge, jury, and executioner via media without knowing facts and we want everything handed to us on a silver platter without working for it while we criticize others downfalls.

Clean up your own back yard before you worry about others.
