Ric Flair finally got the opportunity to retire on his own terms back in July. The Nature Boy partnered up with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo and faced Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett on July 31st, 2022.

Flair took some scary bumps and even bled during the match, something that he vowed to do before the match. In the end, The Nature Boy won the match and somehow managed to finish without any serious injury.

While speaking on his “To Be The Man” podcast, Ric Flair noted that Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat getting back in the ring has inspired him to possibly return to the ring again.

“I think it’s great. Steve Perkins [promoter of Big Time Wrestling] is a great promoter, so I wish them all well, whoever’s involved. I don’t know the situation.” At no point though did Flair address the fact that Steamboat reportedly turned down an offer to take part in Ric Flair’s Last Match, but the “Nature Boy” is happy for him regardless.

“It’s one of those deals where nobody’s ever going to be Ricky Steamboat,” Flair continued, “so they might as well watch him while they can and enjoy the opportunity, because there never will be another Ricky Steamboat. At every level, he’s better than 50% of the guys in the business today, and he wouldn’t get in the ring if he wasn’t. He holds himself to a very high standard, and I imagine he’ll probably look better than the guys he’s in the ring with because he’s always in good shape.”

Steamboat coming back makes me want to come back again. I went back up to Lincoln and started training again,” Flair said, with no inclination as to whether or not he was serious. “What else is there to do?”

We will have to wait and see whether Ric Flair really will return to the ring or not. Crazier things have happened, so we can’t really discount the possibility.
