Ric Flair's Last Match: here's what happened!

When Ric Flair announced that he would have one last match in his career, everyone worried about him and his health, but there was no lack of desire to see a legend of his caliber step into the ring. But now we have to ask ourselves: how did it go? This is why we are here today with a somewhat special and different report, where we will concentrate a lot on telling you what happened during the last match of the Nature Boy, but also giving you the results of the rest of Card.

Before the actual match we are presented with a video that traces how the match was born, starting from the announcement made in all the media, and the rivalry that led to the choice of the two challengers for the Nature Boy.

It has to be said that they did a great job building this feud and not just having a casual match without giving an explanation, they engaged in full professional wrestling style. When we return to the present, Mick Foley, The Undertaker, Michelle McCool and DDP are framed in the front row, in fact Ric Flair himself had anticipated the presence of many colleagues and friends during an interview.

It's a shame though that WWE didn't give Charlotte Flair permission to appear, even though we know she was backstage. When the match begins, Jeff Jarret and Jay Lethal first enter and then Ric Flair's partner, or son-in-law Andrade El Idolo, who for the occasion sports a new look, but not so much that of the Nature Boy, known also for her wonderful dressing gowns.

This time he has a completely white one with details, including the characteristic butterflies, purple… but stop everyone! Under the Ric riva dressing gown the original Big Gold Belt! Epic! Note that Ric will fight with his usual panties, but with a custom top tank top.

The announcer has a hard time announcing the match as the two sides are already throwing pieces of clothes and insulting each other in the ring, but in the end everything goes. Ric Flair does not lose even a second and starts in the ring with Jeff Jarrett, who immediately changes his teammate Lethal.

The contest starts very slow, but the music changes when Andrade takes over because everything speeds up Having troubled Andrade, Ric Flair enters without change and applies a Figure 4 to Jay Lethal, but is interrupted by Jeff Jarrett outside the ring hitting him with his wife's heeled shoe before attacking him further, but his daughter more Nature Boy's great, Megan, grabs Jarrett's wife pissed off like a beast by the hair because it's the whole match that breaks.

Now… with all due respect to Megan, but couldn't they put Charlotte as manager to counter her in a less cringe way? Damn WWE! However, in the meantime the heavy blows against Ric continue, guess what? That's right, he starts bleeding!

Still a better love story than Twilight, some would say. And Jarrett's incorrect one also takes it out on Wendy, Ric's wife, pushing her. But as soon as the 16-time champion recovers, he attacks his teammates and Flair's son-in-law then passes a brass knuckle from Conrad, the other son-in-law and puts it in the hand of Charlotte's father who hits JJ with a nice punch.

At this point there is still no referee in the ring, but in the end another comes out and ... Ric Flair applies Figure 4 to Jeff Jarrett, but instead of making him give in to submission, the man has his back to the ground and therefore the count of three is applied.

A not so good ending honestly, it would have to give way to create even more of the magic we know well. But in the end, as was easily predictable, the Nature Boy wins what we really hope will be the last match, because clearly at the end of it all he died for a minute in Andrade's arms, that is, he just didn't respond, he just stood there with open mouth bleeding.

Tony Schiavone approaches with the microphone complimenting him and tells him that we all love him and Ric picks up the microphone talking about his past experience in the promotion and saying that this match was special for him, also thanking his family for being there and the fans, saying that they are the one that inspires wrestlers to do what they do and cannot, performers, lose this love and support.

And with the image of Ric Flair kissing the Big Gold Belt and hugging Jay Lethal, the event ends.
