Among the world's greatest pro-wrestling legends of the past 50 years, the name of two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, multiple world champion of the Stamford federation and the defunct Turner company, WCW, certainly resonates.
he then moved his steps also in the TNA rings, only to retire definitively from wrestling wrestling a few years ago. His last official match in the WWE rings dates back to Wrestlemania 24, where Shawn Michaels defeated him in his last fight, the stipulation of which was that if Ric had lost the match, he would have to retire and after a very emotional match, a moved Flair left the federation rings, greeting everyone the next day, in an episode of Monday Night Raw dedicated to him and his farewell.
Apparently, however, this goodbye may not be definitive, given the recent words of Booker T, who would swear he heard Ric Flair talk about a retirement that will never come, because he will die as a wrestler and not as a manager.
Booker T in his latest installment of his podcast, the Hall of Fame podcast, he had stated that Ric had talked to him about the possibility of returning to the ring again at least once before completely abandoning the world of wrestling, which at this point may never do, until his death, in the last few hours Flair himself wanted to make his long-time fans fantasize with a photo.

Will Brock Lesnar fight in AEW?
In recent days, AEW, also named All Elite Wrestling, has been in the news for the latest rumors that have approached two former WWE stars such as CM Punk and even Daniel Bryan to the company of Tony Khan.
In the last few hours the rumors have increased and have also seen a rumor that would be incredible: the second most important wrestling company in the world would also be thinking of The Beast Incarnate, one of the most important stars of the WWE of the last twenty years, none other than Brock Lesnar.
Some rumors even say that the wrestler has already signed a contract. It all started when someone sent a message to colleagues from Wrestling Observer Newsletter stating that a historical and very important source in wrestling would tell them that Brock Lesnar had signed a deal with a company outside WWE.
Rumors have increased and it has been argued that this company was indeed the AEW. During the last episode of the Mat Men podcast, colleague Andrew Zarian took stock of the actual situation of The Beast. Here are his words: "I can tell you with absolute certainty that Brock Lesnar did not sign with AEW.
They may have spoken occasionally, but never anything serious. That's all I know and I can tell you what they told me. I also spoke to Dave Meltzer and he also confirmed that it is not true, Brock Lesnar has not signed with All Elite Wrestling."
Brock Lesnar has been absent from WWE rings and wrestling in general since last year when he was defeated at Wrestlemania 36. Latest rumors say that Vince McMahon's company is very interested in the wrestler's return and Zarian continued: "Brock hasn't signed with WWE yet.
I know WWE wants him and honestly if I'm WWE I think: How do you let go. one like him. I think it would be stupid and in fact the fact that WWE doesn't sink the blow for his return has made some wrestling fans think that WWE wants to sell.
Usually when someone wants to sell he has to save money as possible but I think you must also sell with the maximum of your earnings."
