WWE releasing Ric Flair was huge breaking news. Flair, one of their longest-serving wrestlers, was reportedly unhappy with WWE regarding Charlotte’s booking.

Ric Flair will consider a move to AEW when he can do so legally. If AEW can somehow pouch Ric Flair, the fans would love to see an Andrade-Ric Flair combo at AEW.
