Ric Flair made headlines after requesting his release from WWE last year. It was previously said that Ric Flair wants one more in-ring run. He has teased that on numerous occasions as well.

As many fans are aware by now, Andrade El Idolo is Ric Flair’s son-in-law and due to this connection, many fans have been wondering whether Ric Flair will make his way to AEW to assist Andrade.

While speaking on his podcast, “To Be The Man, Ric Flair noted that he doesn’t know why AEW President Tony Khan didn’t want to use him as a manager. Flair made it clear he could have managed Andrade in AEW.

“I haven’t spoken with him, I knew he had a big match … I don’t really what — really haven’t kept track of what he’s doing there,” Flair said. “I had hoped, as I told you before, I wish Tony would have let me manage him. He is an absolutely phenomenal worker and tough kid. I wish I could have managed him, but I guess Tony elected not to go with me for whatever reason.”


We will have to wait and see whether he will ever get to manage to become a manager in AEW someday. Only time will tell what the future holds.
