Absent AEW star spotted with WWE legend Ric Flair for first time since backstage fight

AEW star Andrade El Idolo was spotted with Ric Flair, weeks after he was sent home after a backstage fight with Sammy Guevara.

The issues between the two began on Twitter, with the two trading cynical barbs. Sammy Guevara went so far as to accuse Andrade of getting a job at AEW just because he’s Ric Flair’s son-in-law. Needless to say, the former WWE United States Champion didn’t take it too kindly.

During an episode of AEW Dynamite at the Entertainment and Sports Arena in Washington, the two got into a physical altercation. This came on the back of Andrade tweeting cryptic messages that many interpreted as him expressing his displeasure at AEW.

Shortly after, Andrade was sent home and Sammy Guevara emerged victorious in Dynamite’s main event. Although there is no information on the Mexican star’s return date, he was seen with Ric Flair and Nature Boy posted a photo of them together on his Twitter.

Andrade is married to Ric Flair’s daughter, Charlotte Flair, who is one of the biggest names in WWE. Triple H brought back a number of previously released wrestlers. If Andrade is unhappy and released by Tony Khan, a return to WWE would seem like the next logical step.

Jim Cornette commented on the backstage altercation between Andrade and Sammy Guevara during AEW Dynamite

Jim Cornette wasn’t happy with the way the two stars aired their dirty laundry in public. He was particularly hard on the Spanish god:

“So Sammy instead of calling the guy on the phone or instead of going to see him on Wednesday nights he wants to make a production out of it, he wants to tell the world and in the process he wants to bring more attention to the fact that everyone in this locker room hates each other and they all act like they’re f****** 12”, said Jim Cornette [H/T Sportskeeda]

Sammy Guevara recently fought Bryan Danielson in a 2 of 3 falls match in Dynamite’s main event. Although he fell short against the American Dragon, the JAS member put on a great show. He’ll be looking to build on that performance heading into Full Gear and beyond.
