Legendary WWE wrestler Ric Flair returns to the ring for one last match

Legendary WWE wrestler Ric Flair returns to the ring for one last match

At 73, “The Nature Boy” will face off one last time in the ring.

Pro wrestling legend Ric Flair announced Monday that he will be wrestling his final match on July 31 at the Nashville Fairgrounds.

The two-time WWE Hall of Famer and 16-time World Champion hasn’t wrestled in a match in over 10 years.

The show, titled “Jim Crockett Promotions Presents: Ric Flair’s Last Match,” will air live on Fite TV.

Flair’s opponent has yet to be announced. It is also unknown if it will be a singles or tag team match.

“I’m going to walk down this aisle one last time to prove once and for all that to be the man you have to beat the man,” Flair wrote on instagram in a post announcing the event.

The pop culture icon’s farewell match will take place right after WWE SummerSlam, which is also taking place in Nashville.

Known for his signature “Woo!” catchphrase, dazzling dresses and extravagant lifestyle, Flair is still hugely successful even three decades after its heyday.

The pro wrestling mogul who adores the hip-hop community starred in a music video with rapper Offset for the 2018 rap song “Ric Flair Drip,” which is notably named after Flair.

He also appeared in a music video with Latin star Bad Bunny, which was crowned most streamed musician on Spotify for two consecutive years.

To kick off her latest performance, Flair shared videos on social media of her training for the big event.

The retired professional wrestler has performed with WWE, World Championship Wrestling, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling and the National Wrestling Alliance during his career.

In 2017, Flair survived a life-threatening health crisis when he was placed in a medically induced coma and underwent surgery due to an intestinal blockage.

The artist was hospitalized and reportedly spent 10 days on life support after suffering complications from the obstruction.
