It was a star-studded night in Nashville as many of wrestling’s legends including The Undertaker came out and showed support for Ric Flair in his final ever match.
At the age of 73, The Nature Boy walked that aisle one last time looking as only he can look as he teamed with son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to take on the nefarious team of Jay Lethal and WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett.
It was the night wrestling went back to the future as Jim Crockett Promotions returned for one night only as stars from every major wrestling company on the planet appeared on the show.
Many of Flair’s friends, ex-colleagues, and rivals were either in attendance for the event or had sent in video messages paying tribute to the career of the sixteen-time champion of the world.
Despite previously saying he didn’t want to see Flair’s last match, WWE icon The Undertaker took his seat at ringside for the bout flanked by his old rival Mick Foley and his wife Michelle McCool.
Earlier in the night, Foley got in on the action as he stopped Frank The Clown from making a hasty exit and sent him into the ring where he was demolished by Jacob Fatu. Former WCW star DDP also got involved in the physicality after Matt Cardona and Brian Myers interrupted the IMPACT World Title match between Josh Alexander and Fatu.
DDP proved exactly why he is the master of the Diamond Cutter as he dropped Cardona with his trademark maneuver.
Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler was also in attendance as he reunited with his own Memphis Mafia of Jerry and Jeff Jarrett as The King cut a classic promo explaining why Double J would put away Ric Flair once and for all. Bret Hart, Santino Marella, and Al Snow were also shown on camera during the live coverage of the event. Hart’s involvement may come as a surprise to some given his own turbulent relationship with Flair over the years.
PWInsider reported a full list of the wrestling legends and personalities that were at the event which included Michael Hayes, “The Hurricane” Shane Helms, Northeast Wrestling promoter Mike Lombardi, Mojo Rawley, Jimmy Valiant, Mickie James, Dennis Condrey, The Nasty Boys, Rikishi, Miro, CJ Perry (Lana), Magnum TA, and Rey and Dominik Mysterio.
