Ric Flair's Rumored AEW Debut Could Be At Risk Following Recent DARK SIDE OF THE RING Episode

All the signs are pointing to Ric Flair making his AEW debut in the not too distant future, but this week's Dark Side of the Ring has left the Nature Boy on hot water. Find more details after the jump...

Dark Side of the Ring returned to Vice TV earlier this week, with the focus out on the infamous Plane Ride From Hell. During that flight, it's alleged that WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair exposed himself to a flight attendant and forced her to touch his penis.

Tommy Dreamer has already been indefinitely suspended by IMPACT Wrestling for defending Flair during the documentary, and there now appear to be ramifications for the Nature Boy as well. Car Shield has paused their campaign featuring the pro wrestling legend, saying: "We take these matters very seriously. As of right now, we are pausing the campaign and we will do our due diligence."

The aforementioned flight attendant, Heidi Doyle, recounted the events from that flight during Dark Side of the Ring, bringing up something Flair has attempted to move on from in recent years.

Asked about the documentary during a recent interview with Renee Paquette, the 16-time world champions said, "God, I’ve heard about it too. Just when things are going good for me. Listen, you put me on your podcast after. We’ll see how it plays out, because I was there and I don’t care whose name I gotta drop if the heat falls on me. I know who was where and what and who and what took place. I know the whole story."

You have to believe this is going to put Flair's rumoured AEW debut in jeopardy, especially as having him join Andrade El Idolo on television now would not be a good look for the company. They had started building to that after splitting up Andrade and Chavo Guerrero, but the storyline could be paused now.

We'll keep you guys updated as we learn more.
