• Ric Flair Reveals How Much Money He Made From His Last Match
On July 31st 2022, Ric Flair has his ‘Last Match’, where he teamed up with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to defeat the team of Jeff Jarrett & Jay Lethal.
Flair passed out twice in the match, as he was dehydrated. He even faked a heart attack during the match, when he was brawling outside the ring.
Ric even passed out during the finishing sequence, when he put Jarrett in the Figure 4 Leg Lock. You can watch it below:
This match was ranked #3 in the Wrestling Observer’s “Most Disgusting Promotional Tactic” of 2022.
While addressing this criticism on his podcast, Flair revealed that he made $300,000 for this match:
“I don’t pay attention to that. You know what I got to say to that? I made $300,000. Go f**k yourselves. That’s right, I made $300,000 disgusting you! Disgust yourself for 300 grand and get in the shape that I got in. How about that, motherf**kers?”
Flair’s last match was also voted the 2nd worst match of the year, with the impromptu Vince McMahon vs. Pat McAfee match being ranked at #1.
Ric was okay with this choice and said he’d love to have another ‘Last Match’, where he properly hydrates himself:
“I’ll take that because it was the sh*ts. Here’s the deal, it was the sh*ts because I made a mistake with hydrating. Let me have it again! I’m serious, I think about it all the time.
Let me have the match again. The one thing I never thought about was to keep myself hydrated.”
