WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair recently had his last match at Starrcast V presented ‘Ric Flair’s Last Match.’ Flair took to the stage in the main event alongside his son-in-law, Andrade El Idolo as the duo took on the team of Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal. He was a bloody mess after the match and the WWE legend’s retirement match was a star-studded affair as many icons such as The Undertaker, Bret Hart, and Mick Foley were in attendance. Flair made some revelations regarding the match.
Ric Flair reveals he blacked out during the match
During Ric Flair’s To Be The Man podcast, he stated that he will never wrestle again. He then revealed that he blacked out twice during that last match. He passed out right after he finally to his corner for a dramatic tag in his match. It turns out that Flair wasn’t selling all that delirium.
“The idea was he gave me the tag and I crawled. But I got all that, and the people got all that. I thought they were really with it. I crawl over, cover, one, save. Then at that point, along came the guitar. You know, bingo. When I was down, I passed out again. I just passed out, and Manny is going ‘Sir, you have to wake up.’ I had the brass knuckles. ‘Sir, you have to wake up.’ Okay, so then I woke up and I knew where we were and we’re home. But I swear to God, twice during the match, I went completely black.”
Flair is now completely retired and unlikely to have another match.
