Ric Flair finally got the opportunity to retire on his own terms last month. The Nature Boy partnered up with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo and faced Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett on July 31st, 2022.
Ric Flair took some scary bumps and even bled during the match, something that he promised to do long before. Flair won the match, much to the relief of fans around the world.
During the match, Ric Flair also faked a heart attack and that worried fans as well. While speaking with the New York Post, Flair asked about the decision to fake a heart attack in the middle of the match. Flair admitted that spot was in bad taste.
“I did that on my own. I told the referee [to tell] Jeff Jarrett to slow down. Boom, bring it back down and lay the rest of the match out. And we did that. That was an audible to get everybody back on the same track — slow down, I’m fine. It was not the plan. It was not in good taste. I realize that. It was the only thing that was going to keep everybody from going right to the finish.”
