Jay Lethal is a true veteran in the world of professional wrestling after competing for over twenty years now. He established himself as one of the stars of the X-Division in TNA and then became one of the top talents in ROH as well. It seems Ric Flair has a high opinion about Jay Lethal.
With Ring of Honor releasing all of their talents in order to undergo a complete overhaul, Jay Lethal became a free agent. Lethal then shocked the world as he made his debut at AEW Full Gear.
Jim Cornett even previously stated that Tony Khan finally did something right by signing Jay Lethal to AEW. He even blasted WWE for letting AEW sign Jay Lethal in the first place.
While speaking on his podcast, Wooooo Nation Uncensored, WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair gave massive props to Jay Lethal for his skills. He also stated that Lethal will never get his due in pro wrestling.
You know how much respect I have for Jay Lethal. I think he is definitely one of the most talented people I ever had the pleasure of meeting in my life. He will never get his due but he is one of my favourite people. You know I am so pro of the people that are respectful and he is so respectful.”
Jay Lethal squared off against Sammy Guevara for the TNT Championship earlier this month on AEW Dynamite in a great match, but he wasn’t able to win it. It remains to be seen how Jay Lethal will be booked in AEW in the coming months.
