• “It’s never going to happen, so it’s just a dream” – Ric Flair On What He Wants To Do In Wrestling Now
On July 31st 2022, Ric Flair had his last match, where he teamed up with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo and defeated the team of Jeff Jarrett & Jay Lethal.
Will he actually stay retired this time or is The Nature Boy going to wrestle yet another match at some point? There isn’t really an answer to that, despite most people hoping that he will finally call it a day and stay retired for good.
On a recent episode of his ‘To Be The Man’ podcast, Flair told his co-host (and son-in-law) Conrad Thompson that he’d be interested in becoming a manager on television.
Here’s what Ric said:
“I could manage somebody right now. I’d love to manage somebody right now. I think it’s important. I could manage any number of guys. It’s never going to happen, so it’s just a dream.
I would have really loved to have managed Andrade. He is such a great worker, but the language barrier just sometimes holds guys back that are much better than they’re ever given an opportunity to be.”
