Just one week after his final ever wrestling match, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair got physical once again at a show in Puerto Rico.
On the 31st of July Ric Flair walked that aisle one last time for his final wrestling match which saw The Nature Boy team up with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to face the team of Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal. The bout was watched by a plethora of wrestling legends with the likes of The Undertaker, Mick Foley, and Bret Hart watching from ringside.
In the end, Ric Flair laid Jarrett out with a pair of brass knuckles before locking in his patented Figure Four leg lock. With Jarrett laid out, it was left to the veteran official Mike Chioda to make the three count declaring Flair the winner.
On August 6th, Ric Flair was in a wrestling arena once again, this time acting as Andrade El Idolo’s manager as the AEW star wrestled at World Wrestling Council’s 49th Anniversary Show in Bayamón, Puerto Rico. Andrade faced off with former WWE Superstar Carlito in the night’s main event and the former Intercontinental Champion was seconded by his brother Eddie – known as Primo in WWE.
With Eddie Colon getting in Flair’s way as the Dirtiest Player In The Game attempted to help Andrade, Flair delivered a thumb to the eye but this only led to Puerto Rican wrestling royalty and Carlito and Eddie’s father, 74-year-old, Carlos Colon.
Carlos Colon and Ric Flair brawled all the way to the backstage area leaving Carlito to pick the win over Andrade El Idolo.
The elder Colon and Flair have clashed several times over the years over both the NWA and WWC World Championships with their first meeting coming in 1982. Both men hold four wins over the other and incredibly they were both entrants in the 1993 WWE Royal Rumble match.
