Red Wings Jeff Blashill shares his thoughts on ‘Woo’ fad taking over Little Caesars Arena

If you have been to Little Caesars Arena as of late to watch a Detroit Red Wings game, there is no doubt that you have noticed the new fad that has begun to take over.

Since the beginning of the season (maybe even before that), the Ric Flair ‘Woo’ is something that has started to happen more and more at the LCA.

 

From The Athletic:

The “woo” — which is as simple as it sounds — has become something of a staple at Red Wings games this season. It’s hard to say how many people participate in the wave-like woo chant that seems to follow a call-response format around LCA, or even when it really started. One person who DM’d me said he remembered hearing it at Little Caesars Arena’s inaugural night. I can’t verify that, but I can certainly say that I first noticed it this season, on WWE Night at the end of October — which makes sense, given the Ric Flair tie-in. And it’s kept up all season long. Amid all the Red Wings’ losing, the woo has been undeterred. Sunday’s trouncing at the hands of Los Angeles was one of the most noticeable nights for it yet. It has taken on a life of its own.

So, what does Red Wings head coach Jeff Blashill think of the ‘Woo’ fad? Well, it does not sound like he is a big fan of it.

“I would have to be deaf not to hear it,” Jeff Blashill said. “My college roommate was a big Ric Flair fan, so it reminds me of him and his ugly face. So, no, I don’t like it.”

Let us know what you think!
