• Ric Flair On What All Elite Wrestling’s Next Goal Should Be
On the latest edition of his weekly ‘Wooooo Nation Uncensored’ podcast, 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair talked about AEW Dynamite recently hitting 1 million viewers again and what their next goal should be.
Here’s what the Nature Boy had to say:
“Well I am sure they are not going anywhere so you know it will come. Now they need to stay above a million again, for me in my competitive mind is they have hit it now, they have hit it a couple of times and went back.
Now the key for them is to figure out how to stay above a million viewership and go to the next level of 1.2 or whatever it is.”
Flair was expected to make his AEW debut in 2021, but it looks like AEW President Tony Khan will have to wait till Ric’s heat over the Dark Side of the Ring season 3 ‘Plane Ride from hell’ episode goes away, before he signs the 16-time World Champion to a contract.
