Ric Flair will return from retirement this weekend for Ric Flair’s Last Match in Nashville, Tennessee, on Sunday, July 31st, at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium. Flair’s final match was only one of a few major headlines in recent months, with the biggest of them all likely being Vince McMahon stepping down and retiring from all roles he held within WWE this past Friday when he tweeted out that he was stepping down following allegations of hush money against him.
Ric Flair, a two-time WWE Hall of Famer and 16-time World Champion, has commented on the potential of Vince McMahon joining his July 31st match. Flair stated, “I’m trying to get Vince to come to Nashville right now.” I’d like him to roast me. He definitely have enough in the real life! ‘ You stupid son of a b*tch, these heels don’t draw. Never bring a lawyer to my office. I dislike lawyers. Who are all these two scumbags?
McMahon resigned as CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors less than 2 months ago. He finally retired from all jobs in the company on Friday, which include his position as head of creative. Stephanie McMahon & Nick Khan, Vince’s girl, have chosen to take over as co-CEOs of WWE, and Stephanie’s husband and 14-time World Champion, Triple H, has taken over as the company’s creative director.
Ric Flair’s Last Fight
Flair wrestled for Vince at two points in his career, first in the early 1990s and then again from 2002 until his WWE retirement at WrestleMania XXIV. While Flair disclosed that he was disappointed by Vince’s decision to retire. At Ric Flair’s Last Fight, Flair will pair up with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo, who is husband and wife to Charlotte Flair, to face the team of Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal, the latter of whom has been assisting Flair in his preparation for Nature Boy’s final match.
The night before all this, Jarrett will be the special guest umpire for The Usos vs. Street Profits at SummerSlam, that also takes place at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee.
