Previously, AEW Superstar Sting announced his retirement next year, and there were rumors that Sting would be receiving a historic gift from Tony Khan. With that, Ric Flair arrived in AEW, and thus it can be understood that Flair’s arrival in the Tony Khan-led promotion is the boss’ gift to Sting.
Ric Flair received a huge reaction from the audience upon his arrival at AEW. Fans were thrilled to witness ‘The Nature Boy’ stepping foot in WWE’s rival promotion. With that, fans from all across the world took to their ‘X’ handle to comment on the situation. It seems Flair’s arrival was unexpected for them. One fan commented, “Really shocked at this”.

What happened when Ric Flair arrived in AEW?
Fans were thoroughly entertained by the matches that took place on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. However, in between the matches, the Tony Khan-led promotion presented a top-level segment as the fans witnessed Tony Schiavone and Sting grace the ring.
Sting then went on to express his gratitude towards Darby Allin and Tony Khan. He was then presented with his gift, and Ric Flair came out. Sting was unable to control his emotions at the sight of Flair, but the duo then hugged each other.
Following that, Flair talked about getting an invitation to be a part of AEW. He stated that he was excited about the opportunity to get along with Sting for a little longer. As things were going smoothly, suddenly Christian Cage, along with Luchasaurus and Wayne, arrived.
Cage then went on to pass remarks on Flair, and afterward, he addressed Darby Allin and Sting. Cage then challenged them to a match at Full Gear 2023. With that, Sting and Allin accepted the challenge. Thus, at the Full Gear PPV event, a Six-Man Tag Team Match will take place between Christian Cage, Luchasaurus, Nick Wayne vs. Sting, Darby Allin, and someone of their choice.
Thus, Ric Flair’s arrival at AEW was a treat to watch for the fans. It not only presented a heart-touching segment but also led to the announcement of a major match at the upcoming PPV event. Now it remains to be seen what role ‘The Nature Boy’ will play in the Tony Khan-led promotion moving forward.
