• Update On Ric Flair’s Health After Last Match
As seen last night, Ric Flair had the last match of his legendary career and he came out victorious.
He teamed up with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to defeat the team of Jeff Jarrett & Jay Lethal.
Flair pinned Jarrett in the end to pick up the win. You can watch the ending sequence below:
According to PWInsider, Doctors checked on Flair as soon as he got to the back and the 73-year-old legend is doing good:
“The doctors were waiting for him the second he returned to the locker room area.
He was obviously spent after the bout, but after resting and being checked out, he was saying he was starving and wanted to go eat.
So, as scary some of the PPV bout was, we are told Flair is fine.”

• Old School Wrestling Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 145th birthday of Old School Wrestling Legend “The Russian Lion” George Hackenschmidt.
Born in Estonia, George Hackenschmidt became one of the first big names in professional wrestling history and quite a few historians actually consider him to have been one of the best of all time.
Hackenschmidt became the first ever recognized World Heavyweight Wrestling Champion in 1905, a championship that was the official precursor of what later became the NWA World Heavyweight Championship.
The famous “hack squat” exercise was actually named after him.
In 2016, George was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of their annual Legacy Wing inductions.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
August 1, 1877 – February 19, 1968
