Ric Flair’s final match took place on July 31, 2022, where he teamed up with Andrade El Idolo against Jeff Jarrett & Jay Lethal. Flair candidly acknowledged getting dehydrated during the match, resulting in certain elements being omitted and affecting his overall performance.
During an interview with Chris Van Vliet on Insight, Flair was questioned about his current desire to continue wrestling.
“I want to wrestle right now. Isn’t that crazy? Ricky Morton, a guy I should have chosen for my last match. Ricky Morton is still wrestling. You know what the best thing about it for me was? I forced myself to really get in shape. I heard from guys over the years when they were older and I was in my prime, the older guys would say, ‘I’m tired of working out.’ There gets a time where you get bored working out if you don’t have a goal. They gave me a goal and I attacked it. I didn’t stop drinking or anything. I was literally training three hours a day, five days a week,”
