Prior to “Jim Crockett Promotions Presents: Ric Flair’s Last Match,” they held a press conference today to excite the fans. ‘The Nature Boy’ addressed the questions about his health and preparations for his bout.

The 73-year-old recollected the wrestling days in Nashville with WWE Hall of Famer, Jeff Jarrett. Flair noted the difference between television wrestling and real professional wrestling.


Flair said, “I think people, especially in the South, like ‘wrastlin.’ We called it when I first got to Charlotte. David [Crockett] knows it was me and Richard Petty. It was ‘wrastlin’ and racing.’ And wrestling’s never left Nashville. So we’re going to ‘wrastle, and I’m talking about in the old days, and Jeff [Jarrett] knows what I’m talking about.”

“You’d cut off the end of a chisel, put it in a metal plate, and put it in their fingers, and that was a ‘hard way.’ Boom! Chisel right in the head. Not a blade. A chisel. So, I can’t guarantee you a chisel, but I’ll have something with me,” The Nature Boy asserted.
