On the podcast, Flair stated, “In 2018, I had four operations in seven weeks, right? Four different doctors. So what do you believe? Everybody’s got a different theory of what I can do, what I can’t do. The first guy says I can’t go skiing, told me I’ll never be able to go above 10,000 feet, I went to Veil 20,000 feet, I went skiing. I fell down skiing. I fell down on the ice, ice skating.”

“So if I can do that, I can wrestle. And I’m breaking again, which I’m never supposed to do. It’s easy to blame any aspect of what I’ve been through and what could happen, but I’m not worried about it.”

He also mentioned that he believed what he can achieve at 73 is superior to 85 percent of any firm’s roster in terms of basics. Not yet in terms of flying over the top rope, but rather in terms of hitting, wrestling, and psychology. He got an additional month and a half to be ready for his last match.

Where will the last bout of Ric Flair be held?

Flair wants to retire on his terms and is playing in his final bout, believing he is in perfect condition to compete at his peak. The Nature Boy will compete in his final bout at Starrcast V at the Nashville Fairgrounds on July 31.
