Ric Flair rips into AEW star calling him a Shawn Michaels wannabe

Last updated

Former WWE Superstar and pro wrestling legend Ric Flair recently ripped into an AEW star for being a ‘Shawn Michaels Wannabe.’

Flair would tweet during AEW Dynamite this week, slating Chris Jericho for calling himself a ‘Living Legend.’

“Living Legend In Your Own Mind” the former WCW Champion would tweet towards the leader of the Jericho Appreciation Society.

“Shawn Michaels Wanna Be. Ric Flair Never Will Be. WOOOOO! Where Did You Buy That Cheap Suit? Obviously Not From @GentsPlaybook” Flair concluded.

It’s quite the dig at ‘Le Champion,’ considering that both men have worked together in the past and it was believed they were on good terms.

Flair is set to have his final ever match on the weekend of WWE SummerSlam, so this may just be him promoting ahead of the event.

It’s not currently known who ‘The Nature Boy’ will be facing on the night itself, but there are a number of talents from MLW, IMPACT, AEW and more appearing at the show.

Here is the current card for Ric Flair’s Final Match as it stands:

  • Ric Flair’s last match (match to be announced)
  • Impact World Champion Josh Alexander defends against Jacob Fatu
  • Impact Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace defends against Deonna Purrazzo and Rachael Ellering in a three-way match
  • Ricky & Kerry Morton (with Robert Gibson) vs. Brian Pillman Jr. & Brock Anderson (with Arn Anderson).
  • Rey Fenix vs. Laredo Kid vs. Taurus vs. Bandido
  • The Wolves (Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards) vs. Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin)
  • Killer Kross (w/Scarlett Bordeaux) vs. Davey Boy Smith Jr.
  • Clark Connors vs. Ren Narita
