Ric Flair returned for his last match on July 31st which saw him star alongside his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo in a duo match against Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal. although he has passed out several times and risked his life, Ric was satisfied with the match, so much so that he declared that he would like to fight again even though that match had been promoted as his last match.
The wrestler in fact seems inspired by the return to the ring of his friend, colleague and historical rival, Ricky The Dragon Steamboat. The WWE Hall of Famer has in fact been announced to make his return to the ring at the age of 70, after a 12-year retirement from competitions, at the Dorton Arena in Raleigh, on November 27th.
The legendary WWF wrestler will fight for Big Time Wrestling and its Chairman, Steve Perkins, with the same CEO who in fact said about this return to the scene: "Ricky Steamboat is one of the greatest of all time and we are Excited to bring a legend back to the ring.
Interest will be very high and ticket sales start today."
Ric Flair charged: "Steamboat's come back makes me want to go back to the ring"
Speaking on his To Be The Man podcast, Flair commented on Ricky Steamboat's return to the ring, despite previously claiming to be retired, and praising him in doing so.
"It's one of those occasions where no one will ever be Ricky Steamboat. So they should also watch it while they can and enjoy the opportunity, because there will never be another Ricky Steamboat. On every level, it's better than 50% of the men working today.
, and he wouldn't be in the ring if he wasn't. He holds a very high standard, and I guess he'll probably look better than the guys he's in the ring with because he's always in good shape." The Nature Boy then added making everyone tremble: "The return of Steamboat makes me want to come back again."
