Surely AEW have to be thinking about some sort of developmental territory or promotion?

They're meant to be turning Dark into a fixed location show now they're back on the road. That'd give inexperienced talent the chance to work to AEW 'tv' standards. 

They've then got relationships with training schools, indies, and international promotions.

AEW seem to treat the older boys well without forcing them to the top of the card, so I think Flair would be a good fit if he goes there. As has been mentioned, that means they can also sell Ric Flair merch and stick him in the computer game. Likewise if they can get Kurt Angle, although he seems quite happily retired now.

Someone just needs to make sure that him and Jake don't start hitting the sauce when on the road together.

Please tell me he wasn't still actually wrestling, he looked decrepit over 20 years ago.

He nearly carked it a couple years ago.

Flair has been in-ring retired for quite a while now - though probably not through the crazy old B's own choice

He was on a legends deal & made sporadic on screen appearances with Charlotte with a couple storylines as well.

Well this is shite. SummerSlam still seems to be on track, but after that is anyone’s guess. 

 

It's hard to argue that it wasn't a possibility.  Although if they do end up going back to that, why is running a reduced and partially distanced crowd not an option?  Surely they don't need full houses to make it worth their while?  Or is it to protect the employees (lol...sorry...contractors) by eliminating travel? 

It's hard to look at those full houses and not wonder whether it was a mistake.  Particularly with the problems the US is continuing to have with people not fancying getting the vaccine.

Think Wee Nic'll get them to move over to Hampden?

I forgot they’re meant to be here next month! Not fancying our chances

Ric Flair apparently messaged Vince to complain about Charlotte's booking and Vince punted him. 

Flair has released a statement with every single word starting with a capital letter saying he loved WWE.

If they do still come over for the UK tour, I wonder if the unvaccinated wrestlers (looking at you Nia Jax) will have to isolate for 10 days?

Is that massive unsafe danger one of the anti-vaxer brigade?

Bobby Eaton has passed away aged 62. A solid tag team wrestler in the golden era of tag team wrestling RIP

Even as a pretty young kid watching WCW you could tell he was a top worker. Watched his midnight express stuff later on YouTube and that was also great. By all accounts the nicest man in wrestling.

His wife died recently as well IIRC.

 

Yeah like a month ago, the story of her and him first going out is very funny as she was Bill Dundee's daughter and apparently he went absolutely mental when he found out she was dating a wrestler, until he heard it was BE and then he was totally cool with it.
