In an interview with Insight With Chris Van Vliet, Ric Flair talked about interesting topics of the wrestling scene. The sudden death of Bray Wyatt is a moment that shocked everyone, including Flair. Ric had a great relationship with his father.
“Losing Bray Wyatt, who I wasn’t best friends with, but his dad and I were very close and his mother and I were very close. 35 years old, 36 rather, so he was the same age as my son. No, my son would have been 35 and they were all together when I retired in Orlando”.

Ric Flair on his last match
Ric Flair had an impressive last match. Although he has a lot of experience behind him, in those moments he felt a huge amount of nervousness. Ric Flair caused a bit of concern for himself and others with one sentence.
“Everything went great including the 9,000 people we packed in there which was more than WCW or WWE had in the building forever, and then I just walked on the ramp and I just, you know, a combination I guess of being nervous and everything.
It started out fine though and all of a sudden like, I don’t know why I got lightheaded for a second and I thought I made a mistake of saying to one of the guys, ‘I don’t feel so good.’ Well, they all thought I was talking about my heart or something like that, and that’s the worst thing I did, and then I got real lightheaded.
I know that I was in and out all during the match”. Flair has not ruled out the possibility that he will find himself in the ring again and show his qualities once again. It is impressive how much passion and love Flair has for wrestling.
“I want to wrestle again right now. Isn’t it crazy? I feel like because like Ricky Morton, the guy that I should have chosen for my last match, it would have been great. Ricky Morton is still wrestling. The best thing for me about it was I forced myself to really get in shape.
I’ve heard this from guys over the years when they were older and I was in my prime. The older guys would say, ‘Man, I’m tired of working out.’ There is a time when you just get bored working out if you don’t have a goal.
I mean, they gave me a goal and I just attacked it. I didn’t stop drinking or anything, but I was literally training three hours a day, five days a week in the ring, or I was doing the sled, the ropes. I got my bench press up for two and a quarter”.
