Wrestling Legend Ric Flair Will Wrestle One More Match
The "Nature Boy" Ric Flair is one of the all-time greats in the world of professional wrestling. Ric Flair has not wrestled an official match since 2011 when he faced another pro wrestling legend in Sting. Yesterday, he took to Twitter to confirm reports that he will step into the squared circle one last time at the age of 73.
About a month ago, Ric Flair posted a video on his YouTube channel of he and current AEW wrestler Jay Lethal doing some work in the ring. Since then, rumors were swirling that Flair was possibly training for an in ring return. In the video, the "Nature Boy" takes some bumps in the ring that the average 73 year old may not be able to handle. For his age, Flair still moves fairly well. Check out the video below.
In a statement to ESPN, Flair said "I'm going to walk that aisle one last time to prove once and for all that to be the Man, you've got to beat the Man."
His final match will take place on July 31st in Nashville, Tennessee at the Nashville Fairgrounds. This will be a day following WWE's big SummerSlam event that is being held at Nissan Stadium in Nashville on July 30th.
Details of the match have not been made official yet so we do not know who Flair will be wrestling or if this will be a one on one match or a tag team match. The match will be streamed on FITE TV.
Tickets for the event will go on sale May 27th at 11AM CT. You can purchase them HERE. You can also preorder the PPV on FITE TV beginning on May 27th at 11AM CT as well.
