For the first time since last Sunday's Last Match pay-per-view, Ric Flair spoke about his performance, saying he was very happy with it.

Flanked by his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo, the 73-year-old spoke to Lucha Libre Online ahead of their appearance at Saturday's WWC's 49th Anniversary show and was asked about how things went last Sunday.

"I'm very happy with it. I needed to give it one more shot. I feel like I didn't go out the right way and to have the relationship now that I do with Andrade, with Charlotte (Flair), to have a son-in-law like him to be a tag team partner, for him to tag with me at this time and have the whole family there and his family, who I have gotten to know well, watched it from Mexico. It was big for all of them," he said. 

He continued, "It was especially big for me because my entire family was there and the only person to get an opportunity to do that twice: once in 2008 with Shawn Michaels (at WrestleMania) and now with my son-in-law in Nashville. It was big."

There was criticism of Flair's performance in his tag team win with Andrade over Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett due to his physical condition and struggling with basic movements like putting on a pair of brass knuckles.

The event was a strong one for Flair and promoter Conrad Thompson, generating between 24,000-29,000 PPV buys and a $448,000 gate -- all with no national television exposure.

Flair appeared on Saturday's WWC show, getting physical with old rival Carlos Colon during Andrade's match with Colon's son, Carlito.
