2-Time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair made his debut for Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling on the October 25th episode of AEW Dynamite, and he revealed that he would stay in Sting’s corner, until The Stinger will retire at next year’s AEW Revolution pay-per-view.

During a recent WrestleZone interview, The Nature Boy jokingly mentioned that while he doesn’t have intentions of actively wrestling another match, he remains prepared to endure physical impacts and is more than willing to shed blood if the situation calls for it during this journey.

Here’s what the 16-time World Champion said:

“I don’t expect to wrestle. Could I? Yes, because I’ll learn from my mistakes. You always learn from past mistakes. I don’t think that’ll ever happen, but I certainly want to be able to feed a guy if I’ve helped get heat on them because it’s only fair to the babyface, or the good guy rather, that he gets a shot at the guy.

That’s how they prevail. They beat the villain, and then they have to smack someone around that’s been associated with them. I am cleared for that. Even if I wasn’t, I’m feeding. That’s the way it works.

By the way, I’ll have a blade on my finger, brother. So you can pass that along. I don’t go to work without a blade. I’ll take an aspirin so I really bleed.

I just feel very strongly and this is a point you can emphasize, I think if you are in a managerial role, and you are put in a position of getting heat on somebody, which even after [Sting] retires, and they keep me along, I would love to do that.

I think it’s very important if you’re going to help get the heat, then you gotta be able to get knocked down. There’s no better answer to the question than that.”
