According to PW Insider, both Rey and Dominik Mysterio were in the arena.

Ric Flair took some scary bumps, but managed to win the match in the end. The bout featured brass knuckles and several other twists before Flair locked in the Figure Four on Jeff Jarrett for the victory as the crowd went wild. After the match, Flair was presented the Big Gold Belt.
The match saw some risky spots. It seemed Flair was not willing to do a move. While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that Ric Flair chose not to do a superplex after Jay Lethal hit him with a vertical suplex. Bryan Alvarez then noted that after the match, Ric Flair mouthed to Andrade El Idolo “I blacked out.” Hopefully, things are okay for him in the long term.
He took that one vertical suplex and I think they were going to do a superplex. He came back down and didn’t want to take it. He took a normal suplex. He never got to his feet again after that one vertical suplex.
