In a move that has wrestling enthusiasts buzzing, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) confirmed the multi-year acquisition of wrestling icon Ric Flair, a WWE Hall of Famer renowned for his indelible mark on the sport. Amplifying the partnership, AEW has embraced Flair's "Wooooo!

Energy" as its official energy drink, intertwining Flair's brand with AEW's dynamic programming. In an exclusive with Variety, Flair elaborated on the genesis of this unexpected alliance. "It was a simple reach out to Tony [Khan]," Flair disclosed.

Rather than touting his legendary status, Flair's pitch centered on his energy drink venture. A conversation that began with beverage branding soon pivoted to something more profound: a role in the impending retirement of Sting, a revered figure in wrestling and a storied adversary of Flair.

Ric Flair's AEW Debut

Ric Flair's AEW tenure commenced with a poignant tribute to Sting on the October 25 "AEW Dynamite," pledging to accompany Sting through his storied farewell. This bold declaration was met with an electrifying challenge from Luchasaurus, Nick Wayne, and Christian Cage, setting the stage for a six-man tag team clash at the highly anticipated Full Gear 2023 event on November 18.

Wrestling aficionado Adam Copeland has been tapped as the third to team up with Sting and Allin, a lineup that promises to captivate fans. Although Flair's role at Full Gear seems assured, his mention of involvement suggests a broader narrative scope, potentially threading through various AEW storylines during his contract term.

Fans are speculating on what Flair's legendary prowess will bring to the AEW table, igniting forums and social media platforms with predictions and excitement. As AEW continues to expand its roster with venerable talent like Flair, the wrestling world watches with keen interest.

Will Flair's signature style and strategic acumen propel AEW to new heights? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain: the "Nature Boy" is back in the ring, and the wrestling community is eagerly awaiting his next move.
