Ric Flair shocked the wrestling world when he announced he’ll be coming out of retirement to wrestle a match this year. The match is set to take place at Starrcast in Nashville, Tennessee, on July 31st.

On the latest episode of To Be The Man podcast, Flair expressed his urge to throw it down with Vince McMahon at SummerSlam 2022. The premium live event will take place a day before Starrcast.

“I’m gonna text Vince today and say, ‘I think you and I should have one last encounter at SummerSlam… we deserve it… before I retire the next day. Vince McMahon against Ric Flair… I’ll take the bumps, Vince just punches me, I’ll take a blade. The crowd will go crazy! I’ll fall on my face. How easy is that?”

We’ll have to see if the 73-year-old Nature Boy gets that match against 76-year-old Vince McMahon. Stranger things have happened in WWE, like McMahon’s short, yet terrible confrontation with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin at WrestleMania 38 this year.


The Dirtiest Player In The Game will partner up with the FTR to take on the Rock n Roll Express and a mystery partner. Hulk Hogan was believed to be the mystery opponent until Flair quashed those rumors.

Flair is training hard for his “final” match. He took a fall from the top rope in a viral video. The 16-time world champion wants to retire on his own terms. We’ll have to wait till July 31st to see how the match goes down.
