Ric Flair competed in what was marketed as his last match on the Ric Flair’s Last Match occasion on July 31 in Nashville, TN. Every week later he was down in Puerto Rico turning down the supply to wrestle once more whereas managing Andrade El Idolo, then went on his podcast and claimed he regretted declaring the match his retirement bout. Now it seems Flair has absolutely gone again on the concept, saying on this week’s To Be The Man that the information of Ricky Steamboat’s first match in 12 years has him coaching as soon as once more.
“Steamboat coming back makes me want to come back again,” Flair stated, although it was unclear if he was joking or not. “I went back up to Lincoln and started training again. What else is there to do?”
Flair’s notion to wrestle once more comes regardless of the truth that he handed out twice throughout his retirement match because of dehydration, together with proper earlier than the end of his tag crew match with El Idolo, Jeff Jarrett and Jey Lethal.
“I don’t think people realized that I passed out twice. Well what happened was, my regimentation for training was so strict that I kept my weight, I wanted my perfect weighty to be like 220 going in,” Flair defined. “So the last day, the last day and a half, aside from all the work that we had planned for me to do, I didn’t hydrate. I had it in my mind that I had to weigh 219. So I went to the ring and I’m like 217 pounds, and what happened during the body of the match is I just became dehydrated. I actually, when I was standing on the apron, I looked at Jay, which started a wheel of motion. I said, ‘Man, I think I’m getting sick’ because I was getting light-headed. Nothing to do with my heart or nothing to do with my intestines. I was getting light-headed. I’m sure a lot of it was nerves as well. So I think Jay said, ‘Guys, we gotta move this along’, when that isn’t what I meant. But to the point when [Andrade] came over and said, ‘Your turn, sir. Your turn, sir.’ So I got in and I didn’t know where we were in the match because I had missed about clearly like 10 seconds of it,” Flair stated again in August whereas reflecting on the match.
