Ric Fair talks about AEW

Hall Of Famer WWE Ric Flair also voiced his views on the current AEW situation, praising Tony Khan's federation for how it is moving forward with its events despite backstage troubles. AEW has almost become synonymous with chaos in recent weeks as the federation continues to deal with the aftermath of CM Punk's explosive comments following his harsh post All Out words which then sparked a backstage brawl.

Ric Flair speaks about AEW

After working in wrestling for several years across different federations, Ric Flair saw his fair share of insanity backstage and in a recent episode of the To Be The Man podcast, he wanted to talk about the AEW riots: “That show, that AEW did last week, after all this Punk and Elite stuff, it's crazy.

The event they had last week was one of the best I've ever seen. I know everyone on the show and they've gotten over a million viewers. This only proves that all of them can be replaced with others. Jericho had an incredible match with Jon Moxley.

I can't remember everything but still, it was a hell of an incredible sight. I also know a lot of people who haven't been able to watch the show. And they still got over a million spectators. It's a really great result for them and they are on track with really good matches and storylines." On the WWE vs AEW confrontation: "That's how you might think of reaching WWE.

They made nearly 1.1 million and WWE 1.6 million. I think that's the right path they have to go, they don't have to worry about what's going on in the backstage or various problems. And luckily that's something they're not doing." AEW may soon be on the lookout for new wrestlers, after it was reported that CM Punk may be close to leaving Tony Khan's federation.

In fact, it has been reported that the Best In The World could leave All Elite Wrestling, solving all the problems of the chaos that arose in part from him too. WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair revealed Bradley Cooper is in the running to play The Nature Boy in an upcoming movie.

“Well, there’s talks right now that I can’t mention. They are making a movie about my life and I know that they’ve talked to Bradley Cooper. I could see him doing that. I could see him. That’s the only name that’s come up I don’t... That’s only rumored. I mean, I’ve heard it officially, but it’s not in place."
