Ric Flair – “I Don’t Hear Anyone Talking About AEW”

WWE Ric Flair

Ric Flair claims that everything “pales in comparison” when WWE gets on the kind of creative roll that they are enjoying coming off the Royal Rumble.

Since Triple H took over creative control of the company in July 2022, fans have been increasingly satisfied with the creative product, especially the ongoing storyline between The Bloodline, Sami Zayn, and Kevin Owens, which fans are branding an all-time classic program.

Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair recently shared his thoughts on the current state of the WWE on his podcast, “To Be The Man.”

Flair spoke highly of the Bloodline segment that closed the Royal Rumble.

“I loved it. What I like about it the most is its unpredictability,” said Flair. “You knew something was going to happen, but you didn’t know what. Sami Zayn is really good. He defined himself the other night with that hard hit on Roman. People stood up and went ‘Holy sh*t.’ That’s what it’s all about.”

Flair also praised the current WWE product, saying, “WWE is in such a hot position right now where everything is clicking on a positive note. It’s insanity. Everything is just boom, boom, boom. It’s incredible.”

During this discussion, The Nature Boy had some words for Tony Khan’s All Elite promotion saying:

“I don’t even hear people talk about AEW, and I’m pretty easy to find. I watch it, but when the WWE gets themselves on a roll like this, it just seems like everything else just pales in comparison. I’m not taking anything away from AEW. It’s just, when [WWE] is clicking like this, between Roman and ‘The Queen’, and the stuff with Becky and Bayley is really good, and Sami Zayn and The Usos, these kids, they’ve all been on top.”

Ric Flair Praises Rhea Ripley

Flair also talked about Rhea Ripley’s upcoming WrestleMania 39 match against Charlotte Flair after Ripley’s Rumble win:

“Rhea has been on top, but not like she is now. She’s put herself in a whole new position, and I’m sure she’s just overwhelmed with excitement, just at the opportunity to be there. It’s Los Angeles, just the word ‘LA,’ they’re right in the entertainment capital of the world, and it’s already sold out I think both nights. I can’t wait to get there to watch it.”

Ric Flair recently returned to WWE television appearing on the 30th-anniversary special of Monday Night Raw.
