Ric Flair has stated how happy he was with his last ever wrestling match.
The WWE Hall of Famer stepped inside the ring one final time on July 31st, where The Nature Boy teamed with Andrade El Idolo to face off against the team of Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett. The 73 year old Flair would be victorious in his final match, winning by submission by forcing Jarrett to submit to the Figure 4 Leglock.
Speaking to Lucha Libre Online, Ric Flair has stated that this final match was needed, and that Flair is pleased with how it all played out:
“I’m very happy with it. I needed to give it one more shot. I feel like I didn’t go out the right way, and to have the relationship now that I do with Andrade, with Charlotte, to have a son-in-law like him to be a tag team partner, for him to tag with me and have the whole family there and his family, who I’ve gotten to know well, it was big for all of them. It was especially big for me because my entire family was there and the only person to get an opportunity to do that twice. Once in 2008 with Shawn Michaels and now with my son-in-law in Nashville, it was big,”
