• WWE Hall Of Famer Explains Why He Won’t Watch Ric Flair’s Last Match

2-Time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair will have his last match on July 31st.

During an interview with SK Wrestling, fellow Hall Of Famer Gerald Brisco noted that he’s concerned for The Nature Boy and explained why he won’t watch this match.

Below is what he said:

“I told him how much I appreciate his career and how much I appreciate the friendship all these years, and that I’m concerned, not as a foe or anything, but I’m concerned as a lifelong friend. He’s one of my longest running friends.

You look around during our era and there’s not many left. He had gone through such horrific health issues the last couple of years.

If you’re a friend, you don’t want to see a friend do that. You just don’t want to see it. I’m not going to watch it. I’ll probably get heat again when this gets out. I’m not going to watch it.

I’ll tune into the internet, but I’m just not going to contribute by watching it. My thoughts and prayers are with Ric Flair.

He’s got a damn pacemaker and it worries me. I’ve talked to doctors and a certain bump in the wrong direction, or a certain chop or something like that, and that thing can dislodge and he can drop dead.

I don’t want to see Ric Flair drop dead. I don’t want to be a part of that. I wish him well.

I’m sure he’ll probably get through this thing with flying colors, but what scares me if he does come through with flying colors, is the next one going to be as protected?

We all know Ric Flair. There is not going to be only one time. Somebody else will come along and throw some money at him and it will be, ‘I want to do it again.’

It’s not for the money. It’s just for that damn ego up there.”

Brisco might have a point regarding Flair wanting to do more matches, because he recently said he wants to do another match before his last match – against Vince McMahon at WWE SummerSlam 2022, which takes place just a night before his last match.

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 12, 2005) – ECW One Night Stand 2005

On this day in Pro Wrestling history on June 12, 2005, World Wrestling Entertainment aired “ECW One Night Stand 2005” LIVE on PPV from the Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan, New York City, New York.

This was the original ECW One Night Stand pay-per-view, but WWE continued to do 3 more, another ECW One Night Stand in 2006 and regular WWE PPVs with the title ‘One Night Stand’ in 2007 & 2008.

This was basically a tribute reunion show for Paul Heyman’s defunct promotion Extreme Championship Wrestling.

The theme song for the PPV was “Let The Bodies Hit The Floor” by the band Drowning Pool.

Here are the results from that night:

Lance Storm defeated Chris Jericho

3-Way: Super Crazy defeated Little Guido and Tajiri

Rey Mysterio defeated Psicosis

Sabu defeated Rhyno

Chris Benoit defeated Eddie Guerrero

Mike Awesome defeated Masato Tanaka

The Dudley Boyz defeated Tommy Dreamer & The Sandman
