• Ric Flair Is Injured Heading Into His Last Match (Details)
We are about 10 days away from Ric Flair’s last match and The Nature Boy is injured heading into the match.
The 73-year-old Wrestling Legend is dealing with plantar fasciitis, which is:
“It is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of each foot and connects the heel bone to the toes. Pain might be worse in the morning and with prolonged standing, running or jumping.”
Flair said the following about his injury on Busted Open Radio:
“I have plantar fasciitis in the bottom of my foot. Other than that, I am perfect.
That damn thing is sore as sh*t. I’m at the doctor right now. They are gonna start injecting me with stuff.
I would just deaden it if I have to. You know me. It affects me daily. It’s hard running the ropes with the center of your foot…the middle of your foot is so sensitive.
I’ve been training hard, doing two-a-days. I’m happier it’s a tag (team match). I can hide myself a little more (laughs).”
On July 31st, Flair will team up with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to face the team of Jeff Jarrett & Jay Lethal.
