AEW President Tony Khan gave Sting the gift of Ric Flair last month. As a result, Sting’s ongoing retirement tour will come with many appearances from the 74-year-old Nature Boy.
That includes this promo from last night’s (Nov. 29) episode of Dynamite where Flair actually put in kayfabe the fact that he and Sting did not rehearse their famous 45-minute match in 1988 at the Greensboro Coliseum. Flair later tripped over his words saying the ACC acronym while talking more about the venue.
Flair is apparently getting a lot of flak online from plenty of folks after he appears on AEW television, because he took to social media today using a lot of capital letters to push back against all the negativity. Ric went as far as to suggest he might quit AEW if he’s embarrassing the company:

All I Can Say Is I’m Sorry!”
Let’s face it, you don’t even need to pick apart Flair’s promo on Dynamite to know that AEW should have some serious reservations about giving him a prominent role on TV. If Flair really is telling the truth about what he’s willing to do, then I suppose I should already start writing my next post about his upcoming resignation from AEW.
What’s your reaction to Flair’s post, Cagesiders?
