WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair was a recent guest on the Wrestling Inc Daily where The Nature Boy revealed a conversation he had with Tony Khan regarding signing with AEW. Flair states that Khan understands Flair has a strong loyalty to WWE, and reveals that Khan would never ask him to work for AEW due to that loyalty. Flair admits he appreciated Khan’s stance, commending him for respecting his decision.
Well it’s not for life but I hope they keep renewing me [laughs]. You never know but I’m obviously not gonna go anywhere else if they didn’t renew me,” said Flair. “Tony [Khan] told me that he wouldn’t even ask me to come to work there because he knows how tight I am with [WWE]. Our friendship is one thing but he respects my loyalty to the company. “That’s how much respect [Khan] has for me and my relationship with the company which speaks volumes to what kind of guy Tony is. The same would apply to my daughter and WWE.
