That could have been worse. There are legends in wrestling and then there are people like Ric Flair. After a career that has spanned the better part of fifty years, Flair was finally ready to hang it up after this weekend’s appropriately titled Ric Flair’s Last Match event. Flair has been training for months, but there is only so much that can be done at 73 years old. The match has taken place, and now we know a bit about how he is doing.
Flair teamed with Andrade El Idolo to defeat Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett in his final match, which saw him busted open. According to PWInsider.com, Flair was immediately checked out by two doctors backstage and was said to be “great” after the match. Flair also said that he was starving and wanted to get something to eat as he headed out on the town for the evening.
Opinion: As disturbing as it is, Flair’s health was the thing people were talking about the most coming into the match so hearing that he is ok is great to see. At the same time, Flair going out straight after the match feels like he is in for another party, which has me wondering just how long he will be ok with staying retired. I guess you can call the whole thing a success, but it wasn’t exactly easy to get through.
What did you think of the match? Will Flair ever wrestle again? Let us know in the comments below.
