• Conrad Thompson Reacts To Rumors Of Ric Flair Entering The Men’s Royal Rumble 2023 Match

Back in 2007, Ric Flair said he will never retire and that he will only retire when he’s dead in the ring.

15 Years later, Flair is staying true to his words as he came out of retirement and wrestled his “Last Match” a few months back, and still isn’t satisfied because he passed out twice in this match due to dehydration.

Flair recently joked about entering the Men’s Royal Rumble 2023 match as he will be in San Antonio on the day of the show.

Some fans took Flair’s joke seriously and began spreading the word on Social Media that The Nature Boy is planning an in-ring return in WWE.

However, that’s not the case.

Flair’s son-in-law Conrad Thompson said the following:

“Anybody who actually listens to the podcast knows that he’s said that tongue-in-cheek, laughing. Even when he talked about the Rumble, he’s like ‘Somebody reported that I’m going to be at the Rumble. I’m not. I’m going to be at the 30th Anniversary RAW. I am going to be in San Antonio, but I’m doing a signing for Fitterman. But I’ll bring my gear, I’ll bring my robe. Hell yeah, I’ll be number 30.’

It’s a joke. It’s not serious. He’s not really going to be in the Rumble, but I know that gets people talking and it gets people buzzing. But the reality is, Ric’s not going to wrestle again.”

• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 64th birthday of Old School WWF/WCW Legend “Ravishing” Rick Rude (Real name: Richard Rood).

His great career was cut short due to an injury that happened during a match against Sting in 1994, but even after retiring from active professional wrestling, Rude still appeared as a manager on WWF Television, where he managed D-Generation X, and later on WCW TV where he became a non-wrestling member of the nWo New World Order.

Still to this day, Rick Rude’s physique is unmatched in the wrestling business, so his body is considered one of the best in professional wrestling history.

In 2017, he was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his old WWF/WCW rival Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † R.I.P.

December 7, 1958 – April 20, 1999
