Ric Flair finally got his release from WWE just a few months ago. The former WWE Hall of Fame has now made the news for referencing AEW multiple times. He is now using this opportunity to tease a surprise appearance.

The old timer suggests TNT to put him and CM Punk in a segment together on AEW. Just a few days ago, he took it to social media stating it would help their rating. again a day later, The 2x WWE Hall of Famer contradicted himself stating that he had no interest in signing with AEW.

Ric said that he was mentioning AEW on social media just to have some fun. Fast forward to this week, on the latest episode of the Ric Flair Wooooo Nation Uncensored Podcast the wrestling legend opened that door back again. Flair stated, “Yes, I would go to work for Tony Khan but I will never go back to WWE.”

The Nature Boy revealed the conversation he had with Vince McMahon when he asked for his release. He said to his face that as long as the company didn’t do anything stupid against him, he would never work for the competition.

WWE has now removed Ric Flair from the opening TV intro. Tons of Nature Boy merchandise were also removed. Flair spoke about the prospects of joining AEW. He revealed whether or not he’s had conversations with Tony Khan about becoming All Elite.

In short, this is what Flair had to say, “There were no discussions at all. I told Vince McMahon and my word is pretty much my bond: unless they do something really stupid to me, that I would never ever go to work for the competition. And now they’ve done some really stupid stuff so that door has opened. But I’ve certainly not talked to Tony [Khan], I haven’t heard a word from him. I watch all the shows, appreciate the athletes and the people that are involved in it but I’m not actively in discussions with anybody.”

Gunjan Nath

In search of simplicity and inner peace, Gunjan is basically a guy soldiering through his paranoia. You could say Art, Witty/Dark/Retard Humor, Movies, Anime, Post-rock/Black Metal/Hip-Hop/Shoegaze Music, Football, Creative Writing, Photography, Videography are his forte. A Jack of All Trades and a Master of Many. Dangerously bipolar. He can go on months without being productive and also work 12 hours straight. He's basically a lazy, procrastinating person. But if art and ideas hit him like sudden motivational sparks, he can invest sleepless nights on that. Drive to creating art: Sometimes guilt and inferiority complex. Sometimes sudden spikes of motivation seeing artists like yuumei, bosslogic, Kim Jung gi amongst others. Gunjan loves doing scribble art the most. It defines him. He says - 'It's like I'm lost and hoping to find a way out at the end. Expressing my chaotic, spontaneous mind, looking for inner peace in those infinite entanglements I create.' He loves to let the ink flow, losing control, losing myself completely in the act.' Once he was asked - 'why this constant urge of being good at everything? You are great at the things you do best. You don't have to be a master of every art. ' To that he replied - 'because that's how I work. I just don't like this idea of stopping at what I have already achieved. Limitations disgust me. I believe in becoming a jack of all trades and a master of many, plus this innate ability of being good at what I try doing and this upper hand of being a fast learner. I want to master all kinds of musical instruments, sports, forms of art.' He invests in ideas, brainstorming, creativity, flexibility, originality. Professionally however, he is that regular ‘IT guy’. He previously worked on roles such as Full Stack Engineer, Frontend Developer, UX/UI Designer, Digital Artist and Data Analyst. He is willing to use his flexibility and adaptability, coupled with the innate ability of being an extremely fast learner to use his words and wisdom here at Ringside News. Fun fact: He is obsessed with huskies, number "7", Germany, Japan, football, Naruto, Breaking Bad, cinema (in a broader perspective) Tldr: In search of simplicity and inner peace.
