2x WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair recently praised AEW star Darby Allin, but also hopes that the pro skateboarder looks after himself going forward.

“There’s nothing you can say but good,” Flair said on the Wooooo Nation Uncensored podcast. “He’s a kamikaze pilot! When I watched him do that thing and dive off the rope backwards with his hands at his side, the first time I saw him do it I came out of my chair.

“The thing I thought last week with Sting and Darby Allin and Billy Gunn and his boys, I thought it was fantastic” Flair continued.

“How proud do you think Billy Gunn is of those two boys, huh? And Billy looks like he’s 35 years old. And he’s a very, very nice guy. Very humble.

“I just hope that when he’s 35-years-old he can walk. That’s what I used to tell [Mick] Foley” the former World Heavyweight Champion concluded.
