Speaking on the To Be The Man podcast, The Nature Boy revealed that he regrets promising his retirement with his last match. In fact, The Nature Boy had to turn down a chance to wrestle again after that Starrcast match.
“I wish I hadn’t said it was my last match. That’s gonna get heat. Hell, they wanted me to wrestle in Puerto Rico in Saturday night. I said ‘Guys, I cannot get in the ring one week later.’ And the guy looked at me and said ‘Well, you know what, could retire in Puerto Rico can’t you?’ No, no, no that’s not the point,”
Ric Flair is very happy with how the match turned out. Flair also got physical in Puerto Rico, mere days after his final match. We will have to see what’s next in store for Flair.
