Ric Flair, the 16-time world champion, recently made a significant splash in the wrestling world with his debut on AEW Dynamite on October 25th.

This debut wasn’t just a one-off appearance; it marked the beginning of an intriguing storyline that has the wrestling community buzzing.

AEW President Tony Khan, in a surprising move, introduced Ric Flair as a ‘gift’ to Sting. Flair, also known as the Nature Boy, expressed his desire to stand by Sting’s side until his retirement match at AEW Revolution 2024.

This revelation has set the stage for a series of events that fans are eagerly anticipating.

AEW: Strategy with Ric Flair

Dave Meltzer recently shed some light on AEW’s plans for The Nature Boy in his recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

According to Meltzer, Flair is set to remain a prominent figure on AEW TV until March 2024. But that’s not all. A fascinating aspect of Flair’s association with AEW is the potential promotion of his new product.

There’s chatter about AEW helping to promote Flair’s “Whoooo” energy drink, adding a commercial angle to this wrestling partnership.

Upcoming Matches and Storylines

With Sting’s final match still months away, AEW announced that his next in-ring appearance would be at AEW Full Gear on Saturday, November 18th.

Christian Cage has thrown down the gauntlet, setting up a match where Cage, Nick Wayne, and Luchasaurus will face Sting, Darby Allin, and a yet-to-be-revealed mystery partner.

Speculations are rife, with many believing that Adam Copeland could be the surprise entrant.

Flair’s Stance

Flair, always one to voice his opinions, took to social media to address the ongoing storyline. He emphasised his role as an on-screen supporter of his friend Sting and warned Christian Cage against making the narrative about him.
