Ric Flair was just released from his WWE contract at his request. This came about after he called up Vince McMahon and told him off about the company’s booking. Nothing changed, so Flair wanted out which is something that Vince McMahon granted him. It didn’t take him long at all to show up elsewhere.

The Nature Boy arrived in AAA for tonight’s TripleMania event. He was alongside Andrade El Idolo for the former NXT Champion’s big Mega Championship match against Kenny Omega.

Many are under the assumption that Ric Flair will head to AEW as soon as he can. The idea is also out there that he could pair up with Andrade. Obviously, that is not more of a possibility than ever after tonight.

TripleMania was an eventful night which also included Deonna Purrazzo winning the Reina de Reinas Championship. Nobody expected The Nature Boy, but it was a great surprise for fans.


We will have to see what’s next for Ric Flair, but he certainly surprised many fans by showing up at TripleMania. Ric Flair’s presence was very cool, but he didn’t help Andrade win the title as Omega pulled down the W in the end and retained.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
