Ric Flair confirms it will be his last match

WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair will be back in battle this weekend. There are many fans who have asked for information and are also apparently eager to see this match of one of the greatest legends of wrestling. The Nature Boy will face his last match on Sunday 31 July paired with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to face the couple made up of Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett.

However, some people are said to be eager for Ric Flair to keep fighting, after returning to the action in the ring.

Ric Flair on his future

Speaking to Chris Van Vliet on his Insight podcast, 16-time world champion Ric Flair talked in detail about the offers he received for a somewhat full-time return to wrestling: “Will this be my last match? This question is often asked of me.

It will have to be. Even though I have a really good match, I can't go back to my word for the people who gave me all this respect and bought the tickets. All over the world, even in Europe, they offered me a lot of money.

Despite everything, this will be the last match. I can fight someone in the ring, but this will still be the last night in a ring." Ric Flair hasn't fought since September 2011, after losing to Sting at IMPACT Wrestling.

The Nature Boy had retired at WrestleMania 24, losing to Shawn Michaels in what was celebrated as one of the greatest farewell contests in wrestling history. He later returned to the ring on Hulk Hogan's Hulkamania tour in late 2009.

Ric Flair has struggled with the likes of AJ Styles, Kurt Angle and Mick Foley since his retirement. All matches have been criticized, although the 2010 feud and pay-per-view match with Jay Lethal was a milestone in his career in the ring after WWE.

Ric Flair's latest match will air live on Fite TV at 6:05 PM EST on Sunday, July 31st. Vince Russo believes Ric Flair has made the wrong decision by coming out of retirement to wrestle one more match. “I’ve really come to the conclusion with this Flair-Jarrett blood angle, I’d say 90 percent of wrestlers have Peter Pan syndrome,” Russo said.

“What I mean by that, Chris, you understand is they don’t grow up. It blows my mind”. Ric Flair last competed in a match in 2011 against Sting during his days in TNA. “I’m 61 and I’m sitting back and I’m watching all this and I’m saying, ‘Are you people ever going to grow up?’” he continued.

“Between Flair and Jarrett, you’ve got almost a hundred years of being in the business. At what point do we grow up?”
