Ric Flair Claims People Are Jealous About Him Being Back On TV With AEW

AEW's Ric Flair says his world of jealousy has never been bigger

Ric Flair isn't sure if he's going to be a weekly fixture on AEW television, despite recently signing a contract with the company. 

Speaking with ESPN, the Nature Boy said: 

"I don't know. I mean, we've got a structured deal in place, but you know me. Have gun will travel if they need me. I'm available and they will always treat me fair. We all want to be together for the show and the guys were great. People were friendly. At my age, the world of jealousy has never been bigger. You don't think there's a lot of jealous people that I'm back on TV? You're out of your mind. You know that adage that you want to see somebody do good, but not too good," said Flair.

It was announced that the two-time WWE Hall of Famer had signed a two-year deal with Tony Khan's promotion last week.

In the statement announcing Flair's signing, it was noted that Flair's Wooooo! Energy Drink will be the signature energy drink of AEW. A subsequent report claimed that the drink's manufacturer would pay a significant portion (if not all) of the 74-year-old's salary.

The 16-time world champion has stated that he 'obviously' wants to wrestle again, but has shut the door on one last match.
