There is a lot of talk about the last match of Ric Flair, which should take place in July this year. Most believe that 73-year-old Flair is not in good health, but Ric Flair responded to such rumors: “There are two things that could go wrong,” Flair said, as quoted by Wrestling Inc.
“My heart’s pacemaker can come unplugged, but I can plug it back in. The other thing, as Jeff [Jarrett] knows, I’ve had an inner ear infection three, four times in my life. One was when Jeff hit me with a guitar, and Jeff was actually going to drive me back home from Detroit.
Those are the only two things I’m worried about. The blood thinners, I just won’t take one that day”.
Ric Flair and his training
Flair also revealed that he trained with Jay Lethal, who helped him a lot. Flair, despite his age, seems to think he is ready for the ring, and it will be interesting to see what he can do.
It is impressive that at that age he still has motive and desire, which says enough about how much he loves wrestling. “After I took my first couple of bumps with Jay, I had to be comfortable with someone I was training with, and Jay’s fantastic,” Flair said.
“Once I took that first one, I took another. The more people that come to watch me, the more bumps I can take. In other words, now that I know I can do it, I’ll be flying around in front of 7,000 people. Probably not at warp speed!
No, it’s running the ropes, doing drop downs, getting up, and drilling. It’s not taking the bumps. It’s the timing, the psychology”. He still wants the screams of the audience, the fans, and everything that wrestling brings with it. Ric Flair will have the opportunity in July to feel a part of that atmosphere.
