• Ric Flair Is Preparing To Die In A Match Against AEW Star
“The Nature Boy” Ric Flair was granted his release from WWE earlier this year, and he’s free to do whatever he wants now.
Since then, he has appeared at NWA & AAA PPVs. He even got physical with Kenny Omega at a show for AAA.
You can watch it below:
During a recent edition of his podcast, Flair (age 72) revealed that a promoter in Israel wants him to face AEW’s TNT Champion Sammy Guevara.
Flair noted that he’d be open to the match and asked for $100,000. Here’s what the 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer said:
“It’s funny you brought that up because there’s a promoter in Israel that wants me to wrestle your buddy, Sammy Guevara, in Israel. I said, ‘$100,000 and two first class tickets and I’m there. 50% and 50 % after I beat Sammy (laughs).’”
It looks like Ric is serious about doing this match, as he tweeted the following:
“Like I Said… I’m Going To Die, And It’s Either Going To Be Next To My Hot Wife Or In The Ring Next To @sammyguevara. Preparing For One Or The Other! WOOOOO!”

Flair recently claimed that he’s in better shape right now than he was 20 years ago:
“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.”
