“That’s Gonna Get Heat” – Ric Flair Makes Shocking New Admission

Ric Flair

Less than two weeks removed from what was billed as his final match, Ric Flair has already expressed regret over his retirement.

Throughout the decades Ric Flair has had an interesting relationship with the concept of retirement. Mainly that he seems to like the idea of it, more than the practical application.

During his in-ring career Flair expressed his desire to walk away from combat on multiple occasions, but each time he was tempted back. Somewhat incredibly, it appears that history may already be getting ready to repeat itself one more time.

On the most recent episode of his podcast, To Be The Man, Flair discussed his recent retirement match in Nashville where he teamed with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to defeat Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett. Despite clearly struggling throughout the contest and admitting that he passed out twice during the action, Flair has now claimed the wishes he wouldn’t have said the match would be his last.

Furthermore he revealed he was also offered chance to wrestle in Puerto Rico just a week later.

“I wish I hadn’t said it was my last match. That’s gonna get heat. Hell, they wanted me to wrestle in Puerto Rico in Saturday night. I said ‘Guys, I cannot get in the ring one week later.’ And the guy looked at me and said ‘Well, you know what, could retire in Puerto Rico can’t you?’ No, no, no that’s not the point,”

At the World Wrestling Council’s 49th Anniversary Show in Puerto Rico the Nature Boy appeared as the manager for Andrade who was facing former WWE star Carlito, who had Primo in his corner. During the match, their father Carlos Colon came to ringside and brawled with Flair before the two ended up backstage.
