Ric Flair has given his thoughts on a gifted AEW megastar.
Although it wasn’t something that appeared on television, at the November 15th episode of Dynamite, Ric Flair met MJF for the first time. The Nature Boy had recently stated in an interview that he would love to battle the AEW World Champion on the microphone.
Reflecting on the meeting in a post on social media, Flair said MJF has a gift only possessed by very few performers.
I Met @The_MJF Last Night. OMG! He Has THE GIFT! I’m Honored To Have Met You. Looking Forward To Working With You & Our Relationship Going Forward. You’ve Got A Gift That So Few Have! You’re Special! WOOOOO!
Ric Flair Signs Multi-Year AEW Deal
On November 2nd it was announced that Ric Flair had signed a huge new contract with AEW. The news came a little over a week after the star made his debut for the promotion appearing on Dynamite as a gift to Sting.
The new deal will last for two years, and will see Flair’s Wooooo! Energy brand become the official energy drink partner of All Elite Wrestling.
Flair will be in the corner of Adam Copeland, Sting, and Darby Allin at Full Gear when the trio teams up to take on Christian Cage, Luchasaurus, and Nick Wayne. On the same show, MJF will defend the ROH World Tag Team Titles alongside a mystery partner against The Gunns, before putting the AEW World Championship on the line against Jay White.
