WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is set to make his in-ring return on July 31 teaming with Andrade against Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal. The match will be a part of huge Starrcast wrestling convention. However, there is some concern regarding his health ahead of his last match.
Ric Flair reportedly suffered an injury
According to Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio,’ there is concern over Ric Flair’s health heading into his last match. This is because Flair is dealing with “a foot injury.” There was no further elaboration on Flair’s foot injury, but he is also wrestling with a pacemaker, which adds a big level of risk to things.
From the moment it was announced that the 73-year-old would be returning to compete for the first time since 2011 when he competed against Sting for TNA there has been a concern. That was primarily over Flair’s general health, with the former WWE Superstar having a pacemaker fitted, but during the press conference for the show, he claimed he is able to work around his issues, admitting that his inner-ear and blood thinner medication concerns alongside his pacemaker
“There are two things that could go wrong,” Flair said. “My heart’s pacemaker can come unplugged, but I can plug it back in.” When it comes to the issue surrounding his blood thinners, he simply stated he “just won’t take one that day.”
Flair has shared plenty of footage of himself training and getting into shape as he has been actively training inside the ring with AEW’s Jay Lethal. Flair also recently teased his opponent and noted that he is going to face a WWE RAW star. We will see who it is.
