Ric Flair made an appearance on a recent episode of “Gabby AF” where he discussed his AEW signing and more.
During the podcast, the WWE Hall of Famer revealed that he predicted Adam “Edge” Copeland would leave WWE for AEW.
The Nature Boy said, “I actually predicted what happened, because I think he wanted to finish a career with his best friend [Christian Cage]. They started like literally two months apart, both from Toronto, both big hockey fans. We used to go into catering, and I put on Bob Probert tapes, and everybody would get mad at Edge and I. Instead of watching the show from last week, I’d say to the guys, ‘We were at the show last week, let’s watch [something else].’ But Edge and Christian are great, and I’m not surprised at all because I think he wanted to end his career doing something with Christian, which is really cool for me right now, to be able to do this with Sting.”
