“The Nature Boy” will take another walk at the end.
One of the most famous and respected professional wrestlers in history, Ric Flair will perform in the final match on July 31st. Sources told ESPN on Monday. The 73-year-old Flair steps into the Nashville Fairgrounds ring with an independent card that will be broadcast live on FITE TV.
Two-time WWE Hall of Fame and 16-time World Champion Flair hasn’t fought an impact wrestling match against longtime rival Sting since September 12, 2011. His last WWE match was against Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania XXIV in 2008. The opponent of Flair on July 31 remains unknown. It is unknown whether it is a singles or a tag match.
“I’ll finally walk the aisle again and prove that it’s all a man. You need to beat the man,” Flair said in a statement to ESPN.
The final round of Flair will take place the day after the WWE SummerSlam, also in Nashville. The event will take place shortly after the Starcast V Wrestling Tournament and Expo at the Nashville Fairgrounds, which has hosted several historic professional wrestling moments over the years.
His flare catchphrase known as “Woo!” And the famous strut have posted a video on his social media training with current AEW wrestler Jay Lethal. The legendary wrestler asked for and received release from WWE in 2021. Flair was best known for his work at WWE’s biggest rivals, NWA and WCW, in the 1980s and 1990s. But he also played part of 20 years at WWE as a wrestler and on-screen manager.
Last August, Flair appeared in Mexico City for a AAA promotion and hunted down her daughter Charlotte’s fiance, Andrade El Idro, for a headlining match with Kenny Omega. Flair moved his body during the match, entered the ring, and chopped Omega’s chest. This is his characteristic move.
Flair’s prime was thirty years ago, but with the backing of the hip-hop community, he still has a lot of fans. Offset’s 2018 rap song “Ric Flair Drip” was a huge hit, and a year ago Flair starred in a music video with Latin star Bad Bunny, who is now Spotify’s most streamed musician.
The card that Flair plays on July 31st will start at 6:05 pm. This is a homage to Jim Crockett Promotions from the 1970s to the 1990s and the start time of the WCW weekend. Tickets and pay-per-view streams will be available at noon on May 27th.
Flair had a major health problem in the summer of 2017 and needed bowel surgery. This led to her renal failure and dialysis treatment. He has been hospitalized for over a month, but he has been in good health since fear.
