Woo indeed. There are very few wrestlers who have been around for as long as Ric Flair. While some might not be as fond of his as others, there is no way to deny the level of impact and success that Flair has had over the years. He has worked just about everywhere at one point or another and will likely wind up in AEW sooner than later. However, he is going to be heading back home as well.
The NWA has announced that Flair will be appearing at the NWA 73rd Anniversary Show on Sunday August 29 in St. Louis, Missouri. This comes after the NWA extended an offer for Flair to appear at the event, which Flair has accepted. There is no word on what he will be doing at the show. Flair is at least a ten time NWA World Champion (depending on which reigns are being counted) and held the title over 3,000 days combined.
I think you can call him a legend. Check out the announcement plus some of Flair’s classic NWA moments:
Opinion: I know that Flair has been everywhere and isn’t wrestling anymore, but there is something so special about getting him to show up like this. Even if it is just a quick “the NWA is great” speech and a photo op with the belt, it is nice to get to see it one more time. This is where he should have been the whole time and he deserves the legendary treatment, especially under those letters.
What do you think of the announcement? What should he do at the show? Let us know in the comments below.
