On July 31, Nature Boy Ric Flair fans were able to admire Ric Flair in the ring alongside his son-in-law Andrade "El Idolo", in a fight against Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal, with the double WWE Hall of Famer returning to the ring at the venerable age of 73, after months of advertising his last career match.
The four put on a big show in Nashville the night after SummerSlam, which aired from the same city. Several wrestling legends such as The Undertaker, Mick Foley and Bret Hart attended the last match of the Nature Boy. The 16-time WWE and WCW World Champion and Andrade managed to take home the victory by sending the audience into raptures.
Despite a few very long moments of apprehension during the contest, Flair recovered quickly enough and did not experience any lasting and permanent physical problems after the match. After the contest, Ric Flair also confirmed that he passed out twice in the ring, after taking a bad blow to the back with a Suplex, with the legendary wrestler taking several minutes to regain consciousness and to understand where he was and because, with the son-in-law who was very worried about his health, especially at the end of the match, when the legendary Ric did not get up from the mat.
Ric Flair is a true legend
In the latest edition of his personal To Be The Man podcast, the Nature Boy Ric Flair wanted to leave WWE Universe fans amazed by announcing how it will be present both in the annual edition of the ppv, Royal Rumble, (it is not yet known in which veste), both in the episode that will celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the birth of the WWE flag show: Monday Night Raw.
To the microphones of his podcast, Flair said: "I'll be there (at Rumble ed). But don't say anything, don't tell anyone. I've also been invited to another big fucking event. Why? Because it's Raw and it's a big fucking event. I'll be there, hell yes, but are you kidding? It's been 30 years" Apparently, the month of January will be the month of Ric Flair in WWE, with the well-known Hall of Famer appearing in these two great events, the 30th anniversary of Raw and the Royal Rumble, although it is unknown.
Ric Flair believes his former WCW co-worker Shane Douglas is unlikely to be inducted into a wrestling Hall of Fame. “Who is Shane Douglas? Who is he today? I’m asking. You know him real well, who is he? … He certainly means nothing to me in terms of being a talent.
He never succeeded anywhere. He can say what he wants to say. I don’t think you’ll see him in a Hall of Fame anywhere any time soon," said Flair.
