At the age of 73, Ric Flair has decided to get back in the game and have one last match. The 'Nature Boy' will return to the ring on July 31 in Nashville, in what promises to be one of the most anticipated events of the entire year.
The choice of the 16-time world champion has sparked mixed opinions, given the countless health problems that Ric has had to deal with in recent years. During his long and glorious career, the Memphis phenomenon was able to complete the Triple Crown in both WWE and WCW.
In 2012, he became the first wrestler ever to be inducted twice into the WWE Hall of Fame, both individually and as a member of the 'Four Horsemen' In a long conversation on Sportskeeda, Gerald Brisco expressed all his concern about Flair's imminent return to the ring.
New details on Ric Flair
“I'm worried about Ric Flair and I think he shouldn't be in the ring at his age. He said it will be his last match, but I'm not so sure”- said Brisco. "If he passes this test with flying colors, we all know Ric's disposition.
He wouldn't be limited to a single encounter. Someone else will come to him, offer him a mountain of money and convince him to do it again. I'm not saying he fights for money, it's his goddamn ego that makes him do it.
His charisma is one of the factors that have allowed him to become a legend in this business. However, there comes a time when you have to put that ego aside and realize that you are 73" - added Gerald. Dutch Mantell echoed: “I think Ric Flair is only doing it out of vanity.
At his age and with all the problems he's had, it doesn't take a genius to realize it's not a wise decision. Vanity is the only explanation that comes to mind. I hope nothing bad happens”. The WWE Hall of Famer was reasonably confident about seeing Cena overtake Ric Flair in the future.
Kurt Angle also advised fans to watch out for Randy Orton, who has amassed 14 world title reigns and could add more to his resume. "The answer is simple. Yes! Yes, he will (break Ric Flair's record)," said Kurt Angle.
"I believe John Cena will be the only 17-time world champion. I do believe Randy Orton is going to catch up to him and possibly surpass him. So, you know, I know that records are made to be broken, and I believe John Cena is going to break Ric Flair's record."
