AEW Dynamite: CONTROVERSIAL legend appears on the show this week.

Last updated

Wrestling fans were in for a treat this week when Ric Flair, the controversial wrestling legend, made a surprise appearance on AEW Dynamite. This unexpected event has set the wrestling community abuzz, and here’s everything you need to know.

The Nature Boy, as he’s been fondly called through the majority of his career, graced AEW Dynamite in a segment alongside another wrestling icon, Sting.

The two legends reunited on-screen for the first time in over two decades, a moment that left fans nostalgic and excited. The reunion was presented as a gift from Tony Khan to Sting, and it aired on TBS.

AEW Dynamite: What’s Next for Ric Flair?

During the segment, hints were dropped about Flair’s potential involvement in future AEW events. While there were allusions to Flair making appearances up to the AEW Revolution, no specific dates or details were shared.

However, fans are eagerly awaiting more information on what role the 16-time World Champion will play in the coming weeks.

The reason for the controversy is that Flair was alledged to have exposed himself to an air stewardess during the ‘plane ride from hell’ during his WWE run, which was looked through at length during an episode of VICE’s Dark Side of The Ring.

Christian Cage’s Challenge

The reunion was soon interrupted by Christian Cage, who threw down a challenge to Darby Allin and Sting. He proposed a six-man tag match at AEW Full Gear, allowing them to choose a partner of their preference.

Although Cage made sarcastic remarks about Flair’s potential return to in-ring action, it was clear from the segment that Flair wouldn’t be participating in the match.

Instead, the match at Full Gear will feature Cage, Nick Wayne, and Luchasaurus against Sting, Darby Allin, and a yet-to-be-announced partner.

AEW Dynamite: The Mystery Partner confirmed for Full Gear

While the challenge was accepted, the identity of Sting and Allin’s partner remains undisclosed. Speculations are rife, with many believing Adam Copeland could be the chosen one.

Despite being approached by Allin and Sting, Copeland appeared hesitant to face Christian Cage. However, given the recent developments, he remains a strong contender.
