Ric Flair might have competed in his final wrestling match but that bout was watched by some legends of the sport including The Undertaker, Bret Hart, and Mick Foley.
At the tender age of 73, Ric Flair laced his boots and donned his robe one last time as he competed in his final wrestling match in Nashville, Tennessee. The Nature Boy has styled and profiled in a career that has spanned six decades and he brought the curtain down in style as he teamed with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to face WWE executive Jeff Jarrett and AEW star Jay Lethal.
Flair’s other son-in-law Conrad Thompson was behind the one-night resurrection of Jim Crockett Promotions for the event which saw competitors from every major wrestling company compete.
Wrestling icons such as Mick Foley and DDP weren’t afraid to get their hands dirty on the night. Foley led Frank The Clown back to the ring to get what he deserved from a waiting Jacob Fatu while DDP dropped an interfering Matt Cardona with a vicious Diamond Cutter to keep the night going with a bang.
At ringside for Flair’s main event bout, The Undertaker was seen watching, sitting alongside Foley as well as his daughter and wife, Michelle McCool. The Deadman’s presence was somewhat interesting as he previously said he didn’t want to see Flair compete one last time.
Bret Hart – who has had a tumultuous relationship with Flair over the years – was also seen on camera at the event as were former WWE Superstars Santino Marella and Al Snow.
PWInsider reported a full list of the wrestling legends and personalities that were at the event which included Michael Hayes, “The Hurricane” Shane Helms, Northeast Wrestling promoter Mike Lombardi, Mojo Rawley, Jimmy Valiant, Mickie James, Dennis Condrey, The Nasty Boys, Rikishi, Miro, CJ Perry (Lana), Magnum TA, and Rey and Dominik Mysterio.
