• “That show should never do less than 1.1 million” – Ric Flair Doubts Daniel Bryan & CM Punk Contributed To AEW
In a preview clip of his upcoming Wooooo Nation Uncensored podcast, NWA/WWF/WCW Legend Ric Flair was heard doubting that CM Punk & Bryan Danielson (fka Daniel Bryan) contributed to Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling.
Here’s what The Nature Boy said:
“Well, if I’m looking at the ratings, I don’t know what they’ve contributed. Yeah, certainly, as you said, they’re both big stars in the business. Both have had a lot of success, but I don’t know how to answer that question, because all you can do, as we do with football or any other show, is look at the ratings.
To me, that show should never do less than 1.1 million. If they get there once, and bring in all this talent, and go back, then there’s something wrong.”

Flair left WWE earlier this year and was heavily rumored to join his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo in AEW, but Tony Khan might wait with signing Ric after the recent Dark Side of the Ring controversy.
