Wrestling his first match in the early seventies, Ric Flair has grown to become one of the world’s most famous professional wrestlers. With sixteen World Championships and seven Hall of Fame inductions to his name, ‘The Nature Boy’ is now believed to be retired following the controversial Ric Flair’s Last Match card on July 31st.
With fame comes wealth, as Ric Flair often showed off with his elegant lifestyle. Typically displaying lavish watches and robes as part of his on-screen look, it wasn’t uncommon for Flair to be the richest man in the room at any given time.
In 2022, his net worth is estimated to be $500,000, as agreed upon by several reputable sources. Though he’s reported to have had several financial difficulties in the past, Flair is seemingly getting on well, with the two-time WWE Hall of Famer being spotted wearing a luxurious suit in a photo with the Grammy-nominated Soulja Boy.
Ric Flair Came Out Of Retirement In 2022
Following reports that he was going to wrestle one more match, it was officially confirmed on May 16th that Ric Flair was going to wrestle on July 31st, with the match ultimately pitting him and son-in-law Andrade El Idolo against Jay Lethal and then-WWE Senior Vice President, Live Events Jeff Jarrett in a winning effort.
The decision for Ric Flair to wrestle at 73-years-old was questionable, with Ric Flair bleeding buckets during the encounter and passing out. He’s since admitted regrets regarding calling the match his last, revealing on a recent To Be The Man podcast episode that a promoter had asked him to wrestle in Puerto Rico this past August:
“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 on 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.”
Ric Flair has since boldly declared that he’ll never retire from professional wrestling.
