Ric Flair to wrestle tag team match later this month
WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is set to wrestle a tag team bout for his final match to be held at the “Jim Crockett Promotions Presents: Ric Flair’s Last Match” event during Starrcast V weekend.
The second episode of the “Ric Flair’s Last Match” docuseries was released today, and it includes a bloody beatdown angle where WWE Hall of Famer & Senior Vice President of Live Events Jeff Jarrett, AEW/ROH star Jay Lethal and Karen Angle took Flair out as David Crockett looked on. Flair then appeared with his son-in-law, AEW’s Andrade El Idolo, and the tag team match was confirmed. The third episode of the docuseries will be released next week with the contract signing and more. You can see today’s episode below.
The match will be Flair and Andrade vs. Jarrett and Lethal. Karen will accompany Jeff and Lethal to the ring.
Flair has been training with Lethal for months, and Jarrett was involved in his recent press conference, and has been working with Flair’s other son-in-law, Starrcast promoter Conrad Thompson.
It was revealed earlier today that Flair is suffering from a foot injury. However, word is that the injury will not impact his match later this month.
