After this week’s Dynamite went off the air, All Elite Wrestling taped tonight’s AEW Rampage. During this taping, Ric Flair said the following in his promo:

“Let’s party like it’s the old days. I can’t tell you the hotel, but ages 18 to 28 leave the Boyfriends and Husbands behind. Come party with me and the Stinger.”

Flair received backlash on social media for his comments, as fans think it’s inappropriate for Flair (who will turn 75 in February) to hit on 18-year-old girls.

The Nature Boy issued the following statement regarding this situation:

“I Am So Tired Of Hearing All This Negativity! I Don’t Need To Work, And I Don’t Need The Money. Can’t I Simply Enjoy Being By My Dear Friend Sting’s Side For The Next Few Months Without So Much Hatred?

I Know I’m Old, But That Doesn’t Mean I Can’t Enjoy Life! I Have Earned The Right To Do Whatever I Want & I’m Exactly Where I Want To Be! I Appreciate Everything Tony Khan, But I’m More Than Willing To Walk Away If I Am Embarrassing You And Your Company. All I Can Say Is I’m Sorry!”

AEW wrestler Miro (fka Rusev in WWE) showed support for Flair by tweeting the following:

“Stop reading the dirt sheets. They are poison and they do not represent the fans.”

Below are the complete results from Rampage:

– AEW International Champion Orange Cassidy, FTW Champion Hook, Trent Beretta & Danhausen def. Matt Menard, Angelo Parker, Alex Reynolds & Evil Uno

– Sting talked about some of the great matches that he had in Minneapolis, Minnesota and said that it is good to be back before his retirement. Ric Flair said he is happy to share this moment with Sting, and that he will be with Sting until the end of his road.
