That might slow things down. Later this month, Ric Flair will wrestle his final match at an event appropriately called Ric Flair’s Last Match. The announcement of the match earlier this year brought up a variety of questions, including if Flair’s health would allow him to wrestle such a match. Now we know that things are starting to go badly for Flair, who is already a bit banged up.
During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Flair revealed that he has suffered plantar fasciitis in his left foot which is causing him to have difficulty training. However, the match is still scheduled to take place as scheduled, with Flair saying that he would deaden the bottom of his foot if he had to in order to make the match happen. Flair’s match is scheduled to take place in Nashville, Tennessee on July 31 when he teams with Andrade El Idolo against Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal.
Opinion: This is one of those things that is going to happen at some point, but thankfully it seems that the injury is minor. I’m not sure how the match is going to go and it would not surprise me to see Flair suffer more injuries before or during the match. Flair wrestling the match is risky enough and hopefully nothing goes badly throughout the whole thing so Flair can get it out of his system for good.
What do you think of Flair having one more match? How do you see it going? Let us know in the comments below.
