Ric Flair Doesn't Think AEW Use Andrade El Idolo Properly
Ric Flair thinks Andrade El Idolo could be doing more in AEW
One of the biggest criticisms of Tony Khan in 2022 is his mishandling of Andrade El Idolo, with the former NXT Champion booked sparingly by AEW - when booked at all.
Andrade was suspended by the company for his part in a backstage skirmish with Sammy Guevara, amidst rumours that El Idolo was looking to return to WWE, and recently revealed that he has been out of action with a pec tear.
Despite this, you can’t argue that Andrade hasn’t been used to his full potential, and his father-in-law Ric Flair agrees, telling Conrad Thompson on the To Be The Man podcast:
“I like the stuff with Matt Hardy, but I don’t think that they use him properly, myself, but I’m going to be, obviously, biased. I think he’s a much better singles performer than he is in tag matches. It’s to be determined. I know that’s a very sensitive tear. It was a bad tear, so he’s going to be out for a while with it,” said Flair.
Andrade has his first AEW match in July 2021, and since then has only wrestled a further 26 times for the company, with his last match coming at All Out 2022 in September.
