Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson remains one of the most well-known pro wrestlers to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. The Rock has done it all when it comes to being a pro wrestler. He also sent an emotional message to Ric Flair ahead of his final match.
Ric Flair will make his in-ring return on July 31st. The match will be held as part of the huge Starrcast wrestling convention. Flair will team up with Andrade El Idolo and square off against Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett in a traditional tag team match.
During ‘The Roast of Ric Flair’ on Friday, several pro wrestlers made an appearance and brutally roasted Flair ahead of his final match. The Rock also appeared and sent an emotional message to The Nature Boy.
“Even at eight years old, I’ll never forget, you’re always so kind to me. You were so kind to me. So good to me. You made me feel like a million bucks when I was just a little punk kid. Then when I got a little older, I met you at the NWA convention again in Las Vegas. When I was 12 years old. I went up to shake your hand. ‘Excuse me Mr. Flair I’m…’ and before I could introduce myself you went – ‘Dewey!’
You gave me a big hug then. You treated me special. You made me feel so special. I’ll never forget that. Then years later, of course I had the honor of sharing the ring with you. Working with you at the same time. Then of course, years later, my dad passes away. You were one of the first ones to say ‘I will see you down in Florida for his funeral.’
Aside from your incredible accomplishments that have been so business shifting, creating new paradigms. That drip, that Ric Flair ‘woooo’, that drip aside, besides all that, that you brought to the game. The best thing about you in my opinion, is the human being that you are. Thank you for being such a good, kind human being to me, and my family.”
Charlotte Flair will also attend her father’s final match. We will have to wait and see how Ric Flair will fare in the last match of his legendary career.
