Andrade El Idolo has again teased fans that WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair could soon be by his in AEW.
Ever since Andrade El Idolo arrived in AEW in June 2020, there has been speculation that he would end up being managed by his father-in-law Ric Flair. The rumours only intensified when Flair made a surprise appearance at Triplemania XXIX where Andrade was taking on Kenny Omega.
During the match, Flair got involved in the action laying some chops on Omega before locking his manager Konnan in the Figure-Four.
The trail went quiet in September as Flair was the subject of numerous accusations following an episode of the Dark Side of the Ring series looking at the ‘plane ride from hell.’ However, Andrade has now reignited the rumour-mill suggesting that he might be getting a little help in his new feud with Darby Allin.
Taking to social media, Andrade posted a photo of himself with Flair from Triplemania, tagging his father-in-law.

On the most recent episode of AEW Rampage, Darby Allin was in action against Anthony Bowens. After the match, Andrade El Idolo made his way to the top of the ramp distracting Allin, which led to him being beaten down by Bowens and Max Caster.
Andrade hasn’t been in action on AEW Dynamite since being defeated by Cody Rhodes in an Atlanta Street Fight on December 1st. The bout is best remembered the two men flying through a flaming table before Rhodes scored the pin.
Ric Flair hasn’t appeared for a wrestling promotion since the allegations were made against him during Dark Side of the Ring. The 16-time World Champion has still remained active, launching a podcast alongside Mark Madden. In recent months Flair has continued an online war of words with Becky Lynch.
Flair recently called out Lynch once again in a now deleted tweet for using the name ‘The Man.’
