Konnan Details Ric Flair's AAA TripleMania 29 Appearance

The Nature Boy made a surprise appearance at AAA’s mega-show this past weekend

Ric Flair trended for all the right reasons over the weekend when he made an unannounced appearance at AAA’s TripleMania XXIX as the cornerman for future son in law Andrade El Idolo. 

Now Konnan has shed some light on Flair’s appearance, telling the Keepin It 100 podcast:

"Originally, we were going to bring it up Andrade with this Mexican singer that's mega popular, but that fell through. [Andrade] told me that maybe Ric was going to come with him to the show, but as a guest, just to watch it. That's when I first thought, 'If he's gonna be there as a guest, why doesn't he just be your second?' [Andrade asked Ric] and he said ‘yeah’. Basically, I thought, If Flair comes out, that would be cool because no one is expecting it. When I told them when they are on the plane, 'Make sure when you get to the airport, there are fans at the airport and they know what hotel you stay at, make sure he wears a hat, a mask, a jacket, something.' He goes, 'Nah, he doesn't want to wear a jacket. He's in a pink shirt and has gold chains.' That's Flair being Flair, right?"

Flair got involved in Andrade’s match against Kenny Omega, dishing out chops and a Figure Four leglock on Omega and Konnan.

"Once I knew that he was the second, I asked Andrade, 'Can you ask Flair if he'd be fine with chopping Kenny and chopping me?’” Continued Konnan “He goes, 'Yeah, he can do that.' When we got to the dressing room, he was in his suit and chains, full Flair. He was telling me about our match at Bash at the Beach and then broke out into Hindu squats in a suit.”
