Ric Flair and the sensational idea of returning to the ring

Among the world's greatest pro-wrestling legends of the past 50 years, the name of two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, multiple world champion of the Stamford federation and the defunct Turner company, WCW, certainly resonates.

he then moved his steps also in the TNA rings, only to retire definitively from wrestling a few years ago. His last official match in the WWE rings dates back to Wrestlemania 24, where Shawn Michaels defeated him in his last fight, the stipulation of which was that if Ric had lost the match, he would have to retire and after a very emotional match, a moved Flair left the federation rings, greeting everyone the next day, in an episode of Monday Night Raw dedicated to him and his farewell.

Apparently, however, this goodbye may not be definitive, given the recent words of Booker T, who would swear he heard Ric Flair talk about a retirement that will never come, because he will die as a wrestler and not as a manager.

The latest news on Ric Flair

If in yesterday's news we reported you as Booker T in the latest installment of his podcast, the Hall of Fame podcast, he had stated that Ric Flair had talked to him about the possibility of returning to the ring again at least once before completely abandoning the world of wrestling, which at this point may never do, until his death, in the last few hours Flair himself wanted to make his long-time fans fantasize with a photo.

"Damn true! Do you think a plane crash, being struck by lightning and almost dying four years ago could stop the Nature Boy? Hell No! WOOOOOO!" With these words and this photo, which appears to have been taken in a gym after an intense training session, Ric Flair has let his fans know that he apparently doesn't have the slightest intention of stopping, not now, at seventy years past and probably never.

On the latest episode of his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T stated that he believes that Flair's intentions of leaving WWE behind might have to do with his desire to wrestle again because he's not the managerial type.

"My thing is this, and I'm going to let you take this into the break, Ric Flair is not the managerial type of guy," Booker T said. "It's just not his role. As well as, Ric Flair is not one of your guys that wants to be in the office, coming to work every day, wearing a suit and going into the office.

That's not Ric Flair. Ric Flair's a party guy. That's just his nature. You saw him on Triller, he's all about having some fun."
