• Ric Flair Says He Can Wrestle Again And It Would Be A Lot Better Than His ‘Last Match’

On the latest episode of his weekly ‘To Be The Man’ podcast, WCW/WWF Legend Ric Flair and his co-host / son-in-law Conrad Thompson spoke about Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat recently getting his own retirement match on an independent wrestling show’s pay-per-view, similar to Ric’s own ‘Last Match’ a few months ago.

Steamboat actually moved pretty good for his age and gave the fans a great performance, which motivated Flair to think about getting back into the ring again himself and have a better match than his ‘Last Match’, where he got dehydrated and passed out twice.

Here’s what The Nature Boy said about his former NWA/WCW opponent Ricky Steamboat:

“I have not spoken to him, so I don’t know the answer to that. When I spoke to him, we were trying to get him to work with us. He indicated to me back then that he didn’t think, health-wise, he was ready to do it. It’s what makes him feel good.

Like I say about myself, I could wrestle again right now too, and I’d be a lot better than I was in the Last Match because when you’re gone away that long you forget about little things that’ll make a difference and you spend too much time getting in shape for it that you don’t think about little things like dehydrating.

I was so into the training part that I forgot about little things. I think he should do what he wants to do. He’s Ricky Steamboat, there’s only going to be one Ricky Steamboat, whether it’s good or bad, it’s not going to affect his legacy. He’s the best babyface in the history of the business.”
