The Undertaker was the great protagonist of the Ric Flair's Last Match event, staged on Sunday 31 July 2022 in Nashville. A card full of names from all over the globe and which generated large numbers: it attracted over 6,800 fans for a live cashout of $ 448,502.
Obviously the highlight of the evening was the main event, which saw Ric Flair team up with Andrade to face Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett. It was, barring future changes, the last ever match of the Nature Boy, which he won after the Figure Four Leg Lock.
Many were worried about his health, given his previous heart problems, but luckily everything went well. The Undertaker watched his match from ringside alongside Mick Foley, Bret Hart and Diamond Dallas Page. Backstage the Deadman took a picture with Andrade, currently under contract with AEW, congratulating him on what he did.
The Mexican shared the photo on social media, commenting: "I never imagined it, thanks for your words." Andrade, now married to Charlotte Flair since May, said he was thrilled to have been able to take part in Ric's last match.

The Deadman has always had immense respect for Ric Flair, thanking him several times for the match he set up at WrestleMania 18 and considering him one of the best in Wrestling history.
The two had also written after his retirement from the fight at Survivor Series in 2020. Taker also recently appeared at San Diego Comic-Con and held a One Man Show over the SummerSlam weekend, entertaining fans. But that's not all, because recently he also spoke on the potential return of the WWE to TV-14, explaining how Triple H can restore the company to the glories of Ruthless Aggression.
Flair said of his Last Match: "I'm very happy with it. I needed to do it again. I feel like I didn't get out right, and now I have this relationship with Andrade, with Charlotte, I have a son-in-law like him who it can be a tag team partner and for him to be my tag team partner and having my whole family there and his family, who I got to know better, was something huge for all of them.
It was especially important to me because all the my family was there and the only person to have the opportunity to do it twice. Once in 2008 with Shawn Michaels and now with my son-in-law in Nashville, it was great."
Never imagine it!
