Flair is now All Elite. 

AEW President Tony Khan promised to deliver a special gift to Sting as he is scheduled to end his in-ring career at the Revolution pay-per-view in 2024. That special gift was bringing two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair to AEW

Flair stated that he wants to be with Sting for the rest of his journey in the company and per a press release from AEW, Flair has been signed to a multi-year contract. In addition to that, Flair’s Wooooo! Energy Drink is now the exclusive energy drink of AEW.

Comicbook.com caught up with Flair and he told the outlet how his arrival to AEW came to be. Here’s what Flair said: 

I actually texted him (Tony Khan) that we had an energy drink and asked if he would be interested in having a sponsor for the show. We started negotiating with him and then he called me and said, ‘Would you want to come to work?’ He had talked to Sting and I said, ‘Hell yeah.’ The only people that knew about it of course were Chad Bronstein (President & Chairman of Carma HoldCo, parent company of Wooooo! Energy), myself, Sting and Tony. I came in as a surprise and it just was a wonderful experience. Sting and I have been working together for 31 years. What a moment.

Sting is scheduled to be in action at the upcoming Full Gear pay-per-view. He’ll be tagging with Darby Allin and Adam Copeland to take on Nick Wayne, Luchasaurus and TNT Champion Christian Cage.
