Four-way added to Jim Crockett Promotions event for “Ric Flair’s Last Match”

Jul 21, 2022 - by Marc Middleton

A new Fatal 4 Way has been announced for the “Jim Crockett Promotions Presents: Ric Flair’s Last Match” event during Starrcast V weekend.

As seen below in the new JCP Control Center video, David Crockett has announced what is being billed as a Four Corners Independent Wrestling Dream Match. The bout will feature ROH World Champion Jonathan Gresham vs. Alan Angels vs. Konosuke Takeshita vs. Nick Wayne.

Gresham’s ROH title will not be on the line. It’s possible that Gresham will go into the JCP event without the strap as he is scheduled to defend against Claudio Castagnoli at ROH Death Before Dishonor this coming Saturday.

It’s interesting that this match is being billed as an indie dream match as Gresham is signed to ROH/AEW, Takeshita is currently working as a full-time AEW regular, Angels was recently signed to AEW but is now working a per-night deal with the company, and Wayne signed with AEW earlier this year at the age of 16, to a contract that will see him start with the company when he turns 18.

On a related note, it was previously announced that the Bunkhouse Battle Royal will be returning for the JCP event. In an update, Conrad Thompson has confirmed that the winner will receive a bronze cowboy boot and belt buckle, a tribute to WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes, who came up with the match. WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray is the only name announced for the Battle Royal as of this writing, but more will be confirmed soon.

The “Jim Crockett Promotions Presents: Ric Flair’s Last Match” event will take place on Sunday, July 31 from the Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, TN, during Starrcast V weekend. The three-hour event will air live on FITE TV and various bundles are offered for the events of the weekend. Below is the updated card:
