A WWE Hall of Famer has recently commented on AEW’s popularity and say he doesn’t hear people talk about the company.
Ric Flair appeared on the WWE Raw 30th Anniversary show and recently spoke about the changes he’s seen in WWE since Triple H took creative control in July 2022.
On the To Be The Man podcast, the Nature Boy spoke about The Bloodline and Royal Rumble, saying:
“I loved it. What I like about it the most is it’s unpredictable. You knew something was gonna happen, but you didn’t know what.
“I watched that promo in Philadelphia [on Raw XXX], which was very entertaining.
“Sami Zayn, he’s good. That really defined him the other night, doing that. He hit [Roman] hard, so it looked good. Roman’s a brick shit house anyway, so it didn’t hurt him. But the way he hit him as hard as he hit him, people stood up and went, ‘Holy shit.’ That’s what it’s all about.
“WWE right now is in such a hot position where everything’s clicking on such a positive note. It’s insanity. Everything is just boom, boom, boom. It’s incredible.”
Flair would then go on to discuss the comparisons between AEW and WWE and why he’s invested more in WWE, explaining:
“They’re not missing a beat, and I don’t even hear people talk about AEW, and I’m pretty easy to find.
“I watch it, but when the WWE gets themselves on a roll like this, it just seems like everything else just pales in comparison.
“I’m not taking anything away from AEW. It’s just, when [WWE] is clicking like this, between Roman and ‘The Queen’, and the stuff with Becky and Bayley is really good, and Sami Zayn and The Usos, these kids, they’ve all been on top.
“Rhea has been on top, but not like she is now. She’s put herself in a whole new position, and I’m sure she’s just overwhelmed with excitement, just at the opportunity to be there.
“It’s Los Angeles, just the word ‘LA,’ they’re right in the entertainment capital of the world, and it’s already sold out I think both nights. I can’t wait to get there to watch it.”
Charlotte Flair recently spoke about her father introducing her at WWE Raw and how she reacted to the moment after watching it back.
