There’s a way around that. Later this month, Ric Flair’s Last Match will take place in Nashville, Tennessee. The show will be headlined by its namesake match, which should make for quite the interesting night. The match itself is a tag team match featuring wrestlers from multiple promotions, which has left some people wondering how it came together. Now we know how one of them is involved.
Ric Flair’s Last match will be headlined by a tag team match between Ric Flair and Andrade El Idolo vs. Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal. Jarrett is currently an executive in charge of live events for WWE. According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Jarrett is allowed to participate in the match because he is not under a WWE talent contract, meaning he can wrestle elsewhere, even with AEW wrestlers. Jarrett is also scheduled to be the guest referee during the Street Profits vs. Usos at Summerslam the night before his tag match.
Opinion: This does explain a bit of a loophole, but I’m still trying to get myself to care about the match. It certainly has a unique lineup, but it is hard to get interested in something like this. Hopefully the match is as good as it can be and there are no major health injuries. One way or another, Flair is going to win with the Figure Four because of course he is, but it is a lot to take in at once.
