Miro Defends Ric Flair After Backlash Over Rampage Promo, Claudio Castagnoli/Chris Hero



WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair received tremendous backlash for his recent AEW Rampage promo where he spoke about inviting 18-28 year-old single women to meet him in his hotel room, forcing AEW to edit the promo.

AEW wrestler Miro came to Flair’s defense, urging The Nature Boy to stop reading the dirtsheets. The former TNT Champion tweeted,

“Stop reading the dirt sheets. They are poison and they do not represent the fans.”

Other notable wrestling personalities including Chris Jericho, Steve Austin, and Kevin Nash have also expressed their support for Flair.

Chris Hero (formerly Kassius Ohno) has a history of working and traveling with Claudio Castagnoli for a good part of his career.

On a recent edition of the “AEW Unrestricted” podcast, Hero discussed his relationship with the Blackpool Combat Club member, and you can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On his history with Castagnoli: “I met Claudio Castagnoli in January of 2002. I probably would have met him the night prior at a show in Germany but it was a show in Switzerland for the Swiss Wrestling Federation and he teamed with his partner Ares. They were Swiss Money Holding. They were these Swiss Bankers and then I got to spend some time with Claudio and his partner.”

On traveling with Castagnoli when he came to the US: “We parlayed a thing that started in Chikara, and then we brought it to CZW. We brought it, eventually, to Ring of Honor. We were the Kings of Wrestling. From there, we had a series of matches with Roderick Strong and Austin Aries. We won the [ROH] tag belts. We wrestled the Briscoe [Brothers]. We just had a lot of fun matches.”
