• Ric Flair Reacts To Rumors Of Him Facing Hulk Hogan In His Final Match On July 31st

2-Time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair is coming of retirement for his final match, which will take place on July 31st.

It is rumored to be a 6-man tag team match, where Flair is going to team with AEW Tag Team FTR (fka The Revival in WWE) to take on the team of The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express & one more man.

Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat confirmed that he was asked to participate in this match and team up with The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, but he turned down the offer.

While speaking to Wrestling Shoot Interviews, WWF Veteran Brian Blair (of The Killer Bees) mentioned that Hulk Hogan is going to be in this match.

Below is what Blair said:

“I’m looking forward to seeing Flair and Hogan.

Well, I think if Ric were gonna die anywhere, he’d wanna die in the ring. Terry’s had his fair share of surgeries, way too many and I’m getting ready to call Terry in a couple of minutes. I just wish them the very best.

I know the fans are the ones that have been really egging it on that really want to see it. So it’s sparked them.

All I can say it will be interesting and I just pray that they both come out in one piece.”

On the latest episode of ‘To Be The Man’ podcast, Ric Flair and his son-in-law Conrad Thompson discussed this rumor.

You can read their conversation below:

Conrad: Here we are talking about what’s causing all this, Ric. Another week has gone by and you have captivated the internet. There’s so much speculation unbelievably. I saw yesterday that people think you’re gonna be wrestling Hulk Hogan.

I mean, I know we’re saying it’s a who’s who and there’s gonna be big surprises but goodness gracious I don’t think it’s gonna be even Hulk Hogan. Did I miss that?

Ric: Not that I know. I think you would have run that by me. He’s invited. I’ve talked to him personally to come to the roast and come watch the match. But yeah, he hasn’t confirmed for sure but I’m pretty sure he’ll be there.
