The last match of Ric Flair's career has gone to the archives. 'The Nature Boy' wanted to get involved for the umpteenth time, despite the general skepticism and the negative opinion of some experts. The 16-time world champion is unanimously recognized as one of the best wrestlers of any era, having helped to increase the popularity of this business in every corner of the globe.
In 2012, he also became the first athlete in history to be inducted twice into the WWE Hall of Fame, both individually and as a member of the 'Four Horsemen' During his long and glorious career, the 73-year-old from Memphis has managed to complete the Triple Crown in both WCW and WWE.
As Rachele Gagliardi reported in her report, there were some excited moments during Flair's performance. Even though Nature Boy did look his age at certain points during the match, Jarrett was a bumping machine and made Flair look like the star he is.
New details on Ric Flair
Mike Johnson, a well-known correspondent for 'PWInsider', reported that two doctors examined Ric Flair's condition immediately after the meeting. “The doctors were waiting for him in the locker room right after the match ended.
Ric was exhausted at the end of the fight, but after resting and being checked, he said he was starving and he wanted to go eat. Although there were some scary moments in the match, we were assured that Flair is fine. After recovering, he enjoyed the rest of the night in Nashville,” Johnson revealed.
Former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo criticized Ric's choice to return to the ring at the age of 73: “The truth is that a lot of wrestlers have Peter Pan syndrome. They can't grow up and leave their past in the ring behind.
I don't know if Ric Flair made this decision for economic reasons. At the same time, I doubt Jeff Jarrett did it for the money, he doesn't need it. I can't say for sure how this machine started. Fortunately, nothing bad happened.
I hope it was really his last match of him." In an exclusive provided to Sportskeeda Wrestling, our good friend Jarrett said the following words: “Ric Flair did the unimaginable. Unthinkable and unbelievable performance again.
A truly magical night for a fan of Flair." The Undertaker and Mick Foley were at ringside to watch Ric Flair walk that aisle one last time. The 'Nature Boy' is a true legend.
