• Ric Flair Confirms He’s Returning For His Last Match, Date Revealed

2-Time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair won’t be coming to WWE & AEW TV due to the Dark Side Of The Ring controversy.

However, he is still planning to return to the ring, which is going to be his 1st match in 11 years – and is also going to be his final match.

Flair (age 73) will be wrestling on July 31st at The Fairgrounds Nashville, which is the day after WWE SummerSlam 2022.

The name of the event is “Jim Crockett Promotions Presents: Ric Flair’s Last Match”.

Under the banner of Jim Crockett Promotions, Ric Flair’s Last Match will be produced by Thuzio, a Triller Company, and will stream worldwide on FITE.

Tickets will go on sale on May 27th and the complete match-card will be announced soon.

According to the Wrestling Observer, Flair is rumored to team up with current AEW Tag Team FTR (who are the current AAA & ROH Tag Team Champions) to face The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express and another man in a 6-man tag team match.

Flair posted the following about his return on Twitter:

“The Rumors Are True! I’m Going To Walk That Aisle, Style And Profile, One Last Time! July 31st! Nashville, Tennessee! Jim Crockett Promotions!

I Will Prove Once Again, That To Be The Man, You’ve Got To Beat The Man!

Now We Go To School!

WOOOOO!”

The last time Ric had a match, it was September 2011, where he lost to Sting on an episode of TNA Impact Wrestling.

Flair’s last WWE match took place at WrestleMania 24 in 2008, where he lost to Shawn Michaels.

Last year, Flair said the following on his podcast about his physical shape and if he could still wrestle:

“Could I do it? Absolutely. I’m in better shape now than I was when Sting and I wrestled the last match on Nitro.

WWE won’t let me do anything, even though I’m released. I understand, they have so much liability and I told them I would sign anything, but nobody wants me to die on their watch. I’d rather die in the ring. If I have to go.

I’d rather not jump off the 19th floor or spend another 31 days in the ICU.”
