Ric Flair opens up about a myriad of topics during his chat with Renee Paquette.

Since departing WWE, Ric Flair has made appearances at Triplemania and the National Wrestling Alliance’s 73rd Anniversary Show. In his early 70s, Flair is trying to live his life to the fullest as he explained to Renee Paquette during their chat on the Oral Sessions podcast.

The topic of Flair potentially collaborating with All Elite Wrestling came up and he said he’d be up for a Four Horsemen reunion in AEW with Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Barry Windham and J.J. Dillon. Flair is willing to guarantee that it could pop a number for one of their TV shows.

We some money that we could pop a number. I would guarantee if we could advertise it, you know what I mean?

Elsewhere during the conversation, Flair shared that he received a text message from Randy Orton and Orton suggested that people would tune in to see The Four Horsemen reunite in AEW.

Get back in the ring and entertain? Absolutely. A Schiavone and Jim Ross.

Continuing on the topic of All Elite Wrestling, Flair said he has not been contacted by Tony Khan about working with the company. He added that although he and Tony are friends, talks concerning him coming in have not been had.

People’s lips started rumors and I’m not gonna get in — no need to do that. ‘Oh, he’s going to AEW. He and Tony Khan are friends.’ I mean yeah, we are friends but I haven’t heard a word from Tony. If you asked it, tell him I’m around.

Ric requested and received his release from WWE. He explained that it was just business and there are no hard feelings. He decided that he wanted to make a living not being on the payroll of a pro wrestling company.

What happened was is I had a bunch of pending opportunities. So, I had a bunch of things that I was doing currently at the time that I signed my contract, they allowed those. Wendy him, he saved me when I had a big to-go-around with WCW and a guy named Jim Herd, went up there in ‘91, stayed for a year-and-a-half. My first WrestleMania was Randy Savage, had the greatest run of my life. The worst mistake I’ve ever made was going back to WCW. There’s no animosity whatsoever. It was just business and I wanted to try something and they just had a different vision.

At the conclusion of he and Renee’s chat, Flair said he will be present in Illinois this weekend for All Out to support Andrade El Idolo. Andrade is scheduled to go one-on-one with PAC at the pay-per-view.
