Backstage Information Regarding Ric Flair's Last Match

Backstage Information Regarding Ric Flair’s Last Match

Since it was announced that Ric Flair would be having his latest retirement match at the Starrcast V fan fest, it has been reported that Flair would be teaming up with FTR against The Rock N’ Roll Express and another partner, who was originally supposed to be Ricky Steamboat. Steamboat has since declined to participate in the match, so it’s fair to wonder if FTR is also involved.

According to reports, AEW owner and CEO Tony Khan has yet to authorise Cash Wheeler as well as Dax Harwood to work Flair’s retirement fight. As a result, their involvement in the match, which is set to take place on July 31 at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium, is uncertain. The report also provided additional context for Steamboat’s decision not to compete in Flair’s final match, citing the main reason as Steamboat’s list price being “incredibly high,” as per sources.

However, Steamboat was inclined to do the match and did get a meeting about his potential participation; nevertheless, the two parties were unable to reach an agreement. Flair’s retirement fight will cap off an action-packed Starrcast weekend centred on the Nature Boy, who will be the topic of a roast and a reuniting of the Four Horsemen. As previously stated, the event will now be held at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium, site of Flair and Steamboat’s legendary 1989 WrestleWar match. Initially, the show was supposed to take place at the Nashville Fairgrounds.

Ric Flair’s final match is announced

Ric Flair’s final match is announced, logic dictates that more matches will be required to fill the card once the show takes place on July 31 from Nashville Municipal Arena. As a result, the event, which is being promoted by Jim Crockett Promotions, is beginning to announce other bouts, including a major inter-promotional fight earlier today.

Conrad Thompson, the founder of Starrcast, announced the match on Twitter on Thursday afternoon. A Jim Crockett Promotions Control Center clip showing JCP announcer David Crockett as well as Impact announcer Tom Hannifan is included in the post.

I’VE JUST SIGNED! Thompson used Twitter.
