• Ric Flair Reveals Which Recent WWE Matches Inspired Him To Have One Last Match
“The Nature Boy” Ric Flair is coming out of retirement on July 31st to wrestle his final match.
During an interview with Wrestlezone, Flair revealed that watching Stone Cold Steve Austin wrestle Kevin Owens and Vince McMahon wrestle Pat McAfee at WrestleMania 38 inspired him to come back for one last match.
Below is what the 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer said:
“I’ve never been happy with the way I left. When I left, after WWE, it was great, but then I had to wrestle a couple more times because I was paying lawyers and paying alimony, and that’s basically the nuts and bolts of it.
A lot of both, but I wasn’t happy with that at all, I wasn’t happy with myself.
Then I saw Vince at WrestleMania, I saw Steve out there and it actually really inspired me. I had been thinking about it, and even though I’ve had my share of issues, I don’t have any aches or pains, if that makes sense.”
