Conrad Thompson Says Ric Flair Pitched Turning On Sting One More Time

Ric Flair wanted to turn one last time.

Sting had his last match at AEW Revolution, teaming with Darby Allin to defeat The Young Bucks (Matthew Jackson & Nicholas Jackson). Ric Flair was part of the match, getting involved and taking a superkick from the Bucks.

Flair was alongside Sting for his final months leading up to the last match, and according to Conrad Thompson, Flair wanted one more turn.

"In talking to The Nature Boy, boy, he desperately wanted to turn on Sting. 'Conrad, will you go talk to Tony [Tony Khan]? You're friends with him. Just go talk to him.' 'What are you talking about?' 'Just go talk to him, try to convince him me turning on Sting is best for business.' I go, 'Ric, you work here, you're in the storyline. I think maybe...' 'I told him! I told him I should turn. I think if he hears it from you.' 'I'm not going to talk to Tony about this.' 'No, no, seriously, hear me out. Hit him with this line, Tony, it's only worked ten other times.' 'I think that's why he doesn't want to do it.' 'What do you mean?' 'You've done it ten times.' 'One more.' That right there is Ric Flair in a nutshell. 'One more,'" Thompson said on What Happened When.

Flair infamously turned on Sting multiple times throughout their time together in WCW.

It is unknown how often Flair will continue to appear on AEW TV now that Sting has retired. He signed a two-year deal with AEW in November 2023.
