The Nature Boy is back for one last ride and it’s going to be absolutely insane! WWE Hall-of-Famer Ric “Nature Boy” Flair is coming out of retirement and is returning to the stage once again for a final bout. At 73, Ric Flair seems to have some gas left for a few more smackdowns. Last May, the fight, which was titled Jim Crockett Promotions Presents: Ric Flair’s Last Match”, was announced to the public. Since the announcement, fans have been wondering who Ric Flair would go up against in an epic battle to the death.

But, just recently, a piece of supplementing information regarding Ric’s latest fight was released. In a promotional video on the Starrcast website, we saw Ric Flair and Jay Lethal’s brutal confrontation which sparked the idea that Flair would be taking the center stage against Jay Lethal. But, that’s not all.

A few moments after the confrontation, a beatdown Flair was ambushed by another Hall-of-Famer and current WWE executive, Jeff Jarrett, together with his wife after some altercations. The couple did try to help Flair before that, but the old man had some unkind words to Jarrett and his family. In addition to that, it was also revealed that Flair’s son-in-law, Andrade El Idolo would be his surprise partner in what looks to be a tag team match.

Just remember that the video was just all for show. Jay Lethal, a professional wrestler signed by All Elite Wrestling (AEW) is known to be one of the biggest fans of Ric Flair and growing up, he always wanted to meet his idol. Meanwhile, Andrade El Idolo, married Flair’s daughter, Charlotte, earlier this year. Both of them are associated with wrestling and WWE. Lastly, Jeff Jarrett has had his fair share of fame alongside Ric Flair back in the ’80s and ’90s.

Rick Flair’s final match is set to take place in Nashville Municipal Auditorium, Nashville, Tennessee, on July 31, 2022. The match will be available on FiteTV and you can already pre-order tickets today on their website.
