• Ric Flair Has Been Offered Over Half A Million Dollars To Continue Wrestling
2-Time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair (age 73) will return to the ring for his last match this Sunday night.
He will team up with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to face the team of Jeff Jarrett & Jay Lethal.
During an interview on Chris Van Vliet’s Insight podcast, Flair revealed that he has been offered a total of over half a million dollars to continue wrestling after this Sunday, but he won’t and will keep his word on this upcoming match being his final one.
Below is what The Nature Boy said:
“It has to be [my last match]. That question, I get asked a lot. It will just have to be.
Even if I do real well, I can’t go back on my word to the people that have given me all this respect and time and have bought tickets.
I’ve already been offered 10 matches at 50 grand a piece. Over in Europe, a guy offered me $100,000.
This will be the last one. I can manage somebody in the ring, but this will be my last match.”
One Thing Is For Certain… I Will Kick @RealJeffJarrett & @TheLethalJay’s A** This Weekend. They Will Pay For What They Did. I’m More Motivated Than Ever Before! Naitch Will Be Kicking A** & Taking Names In Nashville! WOOOOO! @StarrcastEvents#FlairsLastMatch pic.twitter.com/ZLPTotq9Fa
