Not so fast? Over the weekend, AEW presented its second event with Fyter Fest. The show was both a stand alone show as well as a followup to Double Or Nothing, which was treated as a much bigger deal. That’s not a bad thing, as Fyter Fest had a different vibe in general. This includes a lack of surprise appearances, which brings us to a story about Double Or Nothing.
Ric Flair was recently interviewed by Wrestlinginc.com and was asked about the rumor of him being the original plan to unveil the World Title. Flair said that the story was not true and he was never approached about the spot. The rumor had said Flair was the original choice to unveil the title but he was forced to be removed due to health issues. Bret Hart unveiled the title instead.
It was a nice moment regardless. Check out Hart bringing out the title:
Opinion: Fair enough. The idea of Flair being the one to unveil the title is hardly a stretch so it was a rather easy story to believe. It’s not like having Hart as the former World Champion was any kind of a disappointment as he’s more than qualified for the role. If nothing else, the best part about this is Flair being healthy enough to give an interview after his latest health scare.
Did you like Hart’s cameo? Who else could have fit the role? Let us know in the comments below.
