Tony Khan says “it’s great to have Ric Flair in AEW” and calls him a mogul

During an interview with the Going Ringside podcast, AEW President Tony Khan was asked about former world champion MJF being removed from AEW’s official roster page…

“It’s great to have Ric Flair in AEW and have Ric Flair be part of his final matches for Sting. Also, it’s been a great sponsorship opportunity for AEW. Ric Flair is a mogul and somebody who is involved in a lot of businesses as an entrepreneur. Ric Flair’s Woooo Energy is a great sponsor and Ric Flair is a great legend in pro wrestling and having him appear and with Sting for these final matches is really something special.” (quote courtesy of Jeremy Lambert)

Flair last appeared on the January 6th 2024 edition of Collision with Sting and Darby Allin.
