Having recently been released by WWE, Ric Flair appeared at last night's AAA TripleMania XXIX.
Ahead of Andrade El Idolo challenging Kenny Omega for the AAA Mega Championship, Andrade brought out Flair to be in his corner. In addition to plentiful struts and Wooooos, the Nature Boy would eventually get physical during this bout - chopping Omega and then putting Konnan in the Figure Four.

Despite having the Dirtiest Player in the Game on his side, Andrade's night ended in defeat. Following a distraction from Konnan - who was in Omega's corner - the Best Bout Machine was able to land a belt shot on his opponent before putting him away with the One Winged Angel.
Of course, Andrade is engaged to Flair's daughter Charlotte, with Naitch's appearance at TripleMania only adding further fuel to those rumours and rumblings that the 16-time World Champion will soon become #AllElite.
Flair has been good friends with AEW Chairman Tony Khan for several years, and some industry insiders believe it's a given that Ric will end up signing with AEW in some capacity. If that does indeed happen, the Nature Boy will join three former Horsemen in Khan's promotion - with Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard and Sting already in AEW.
