• Ric Flair Comments On Getting Media Attention For Dehydration Issue During Last Match
2-Time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair revealed on his podcast that he passed out twice during his Last Match on July 31st due to dehydration.
Flair also revealed that The Undertaker came backstage and told him to drink Gatorade instead of Beer:
“My hand started trembling, but it was all dehydration. I had two doctors in there right away with me and everything, and The Undertaker came running in.
I had like 6 beers there. He took them out of my hand and said, ‘You’re drinking 2 Gatorades first.’ So I drank two, and that’s all it was.
I underestimated the importance of keeping hydrated, which is really big, especially when I lost that much weight and trained that hard.”
The Nature took to Twitter and had the following to say about all the media attention he got for his dehydration issues:
“Sometimes The Media Chooses To Focus On The Less Important Things In A Podcast Like My Health Issue During The Match.
I Want To Make It Very Clear That I Thank Tony Khan For His Wonderful Text Of Support, WWE For Their Participation & Allowing Jeff To Be Part Of The Show.
It Just Goes To Show That Both Companies Can Come Together & Coexist When They Believe In Something. I Thank You Both For Making It Possible!
All The Attention That I’m Getting for Dehydration, Which Can Happen To Any 23 Year Old, Is Crazy! When I Get Ready For Something Big Again, I Will Obviously Drink More Water Than Beer Next Time! WOOOOO! 💦 🍺”
Flair also tweeted the following:

On this day in 1981, Vince McMahon Sr.’s World Wrestling Federation aired an interview with former WWWF World Heavyweight Champion Bruno Sammartino, in which he announced his retirement.
The retirement wouldn’t last long, as he returned to the WWF, that was now owned by Vince McMahon Jr., in 1984 as a commentator but also to wrestle a few matches every now and then, thus turning into a semi-retired part timer.
