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.”
