Professional wrestling fans have seen some great names over the long course of its history. Ric Flair is one such name that fans often see live on their television screens. The Nature Boy was recently seen on AEW and was also a part of a brief physical altercation. It seems fans weren’t appreciative of what they saw as they began trolling him viciously.

It was during the AEW Full Gear PPV. Flair was at the ringside during the six-man Tag Team Match between the team of Sting, Darby Allin, and Adam Copeland, who were up against Christian Cage, Luchasaurus, and Nick Wayne. Flair got involved in an argument with TNT Champion Cage and went on to deliver some seemingly fake punches and knife-edge chops.

The two-time Hall of Famer’s offense did not last long, as he was eye-poked and was given a low blow! Many fans found it silly, and others saw it as disrespectful. You can watch the viral clip below:

The 16-time World Champion debuted as a gift to Sting by Tony Khan. The Icon intends to retire at AEW Revolution in March next year. For those who don’t know, the Dirtiest Player in the Game was last seen in the ring back in July. He teamed up with his son-in-law, Andrade el Idolo, to take on Jeff Jarrett and Jey Lethal.

Fans brutally troll Ric Flair’s latest physical altercation

Ric Flair has only been there in AEW for a short period, and it hasn’t taken him long to get his hands on someone. Despite giving a lackluster performance in his last-ever match, it seems he still longs for a fight. However, fans don’t seem so appreciative of his fighting spirit, as they went on to troll him on ‘X’.

Many fans were critical of the delivery of the entire segment. They asked why the match did not get disqualified. Others made fun of the attempt made by the Hall of Famer. Some were also concerned about Ric Flair becoming addicted to in-ring action even at an age where his body can’t tolerate it.

While the crowd would love to see him manage someone just like he did with Randy Orton some years ago, it looks like they just don’t want to see him fight anymore.
