Ric Flair on Undertaker wrestling again

The Undertaker has been on top of this industry for three decades. In conversation with Metro.co.uk, Ric Flair says he hasn’t had a conversation with The Deadman for quite some time but feels Undertaker will wrestle one more time.

“Whatever he elects to do – and I feel like he’s gonna wrestle again, I have no idea, I haven’t asked him. But I think he’s gonna want to go out one more time and tear it down.

“This year, prior to the health issues and the COVID – when I saw he was gonna wrestle AJ I was like, ‘Man that is the guy!’,” claims Flair.

Undertaker vs AJ Styles in a Boneyard match was the main event on the first night of WrestleMania 36. It was a great match between two icons of the industry.

It was one of the best and longest matches of the night as well. The Phenom reigned supreme and continued his impressive record at Wrestlemania of 25-2.


Ric Flair feels AJ Styles is closest to Shawn Micheals

Shawn Micheals is without a doubt the greatest in-ring performer of all time. Nevertheless, AJ Styles has created his own identity around the world with his ‘ Phenomenal’ in-ring ability.

In various polls across WWE and various other wrestling websites, AJ Styles vs HBK is the one fantasy match almost every fan wants to watch, and Ric Flair is no different.

“[Styles is] the closest guy to Shawn [Michaels] in our business right now, and it’ll be everything and more because AJ gets it,” said Flair.

Ric Flair speaks about AJ Styles being the perfect opponent if The Phenom decides to hang up his boots. Flair feels AJ Styles is an outstanding performer and the ‘Phenomenal’ character is a once in a lifetime entity in this business.

“[Styles] wouldn’t be out there trying to have a wrestling match, he’d be out there to enhance this phenomenal character that’s a once in a lifetime entity in this business.

“I hope to have the rematch because that’s the match. That to me – I wouldn’t miss it and I don’t think anyone else would. I just feel like it’s not done yet,” admits Ric Flair.

One can never doubt what ‘The Nature Boy’ says. If anyone knows this business well it has to be the Sixteen time World Champion. If Ric Flair says something it definitely carries some weight.

AJ Styles and The Undertaker should definitely happen once again. It has the capability to be as good as the greatest WrestleMania match ever i.e The Undertaker vs HBK, WM 25.

This match is capable of producing memorable WrestleMania moments due to the pedigree of both the performers.

If this match happens ever again it should happen at WrestleMania and definitely in front of close of 100,000 people viz average WrestleMania attendance every year.
