What Ric Flair allegedly said to Will Ospreay backstage at AEW Revolution 2024

It was previously reported that WWE Hall of Famers Ric Flair and Ricky Steamboat were said to have been “blown away” by Will Ospreay’s match at AEW Revolution 2024 against Konosuke Takeshita.

During an appearance on Chris Jericho’s podcast, Ospreay commented on what Flair said to him after the match…

“He came backstage. My ass was killing me. I came back and I planted myself down and I was crying. He went, ‘Mr. Ospreay’, and he took my hand. I looked up and it was Ric. I stood up and I was like, ‘Yes, sir.’ He was like, ‘You are everything I’ve heard of and more. You’re the best guy here right now.'” (quote courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
