Ric Flair is lacing up the boots to style and profile one last time. The Nature Boy is returning to the ring for a special bout at the Ric Flair’s Last Match event from Nashville, TN on Sunday, July 31, 2022. Flair is the headliner, but the card is stacked from top to bottom with talent from AEW, Impact, MLW, AAA, NJPW, and more.

Flair will be teaming up with Andrade to duke it out with Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett. The setup for the story was Lethal helping train Flair for the occasion. When Lethal requested a spot on the card, Flair declined. That set the seeds for bad blood. After a press conference, Lethal confronted Flair in the parking lot about the disrespect of not booking him. Flair was feeling a bit cocky and loose in the lips, so Lethal punched him in the bread basket. Jarrett was on the scene trying to stop Lethal and help Flair. The Nature Boy mouthed off to Jarrett too, so Double J slapped him and landed punches of his own. Flair was left a bloody mess. The tag match was made with Flair bringing in family to watch his back. Andrade, husband of Charlotte Flair, stepped up to help his father-in-law.
