We still don’t know what the titular bout will be, but other than that, the full court press for Ric Flair’s Last Match continues. The latest addition to the line-up is a three part documentary series that “gives viewers unprecedented access to the 16-time World Heavyweight Champion and global icon as he gears up to walk the aisle one final time.”
The first weekly installment premieres on RicFlairsLastMatch.com at 6:05pm Eastern this upcoming Monday (July 11). Episodes will then be available on Fite the following Wednesday.
Narrating the whole thing will be Grammy Award winner Darius Rucker of Hootie & The Blowfish fame (Rucker has had an impressive career as a solo country artist, but he’ll always be Hootie to this 90s guy). Rucker’s friendship with the Nature Boy — and the entrance robe he paid A LOT of money for at a charity auction (see above) — were covered on an episode of WWE’s Most Want Treasures on A & E last year.
