Ric Flair reveals he has plantar fasciitis, Charlotte will attend 'Last Match'

Flair's last match is scheduled for July 31 in Nashville, TN.

Ric Flair is dealing with plantar fasciitis but does not expect it to affect his performance later this month in Nashville. 

Dave Meltzer reported on Monday's edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that Flair is dealing with a foot injury. Flair then appeared on Busted Open Radio on Tuesday and revealed that he is dealing with plantar fasciitis. 

"I've got plantar fasciitis, if I'm pronouncing that correctly, on the bottom of my foot. Other than that, I am perfect but that damn thing is sore as shit. I'm at the doctor right now," Flair said.

Plantar fasciitis is a disorder that impacts the connective tissue that supports the arches of the feet. It is known to cause pain when walking. 

Flair does not believe the plantar fasciitis will impact him during the match, however. 

"I would just deaden it if I had to, you know me, but it affects me daily. It's hard running the ropes with that damn center of your foot," he continued. 

Flair also spoke about his daughter Charlotte attending his last match. 

"She'll be there but I don't know whether she'll be on camera or not," Flair said. "Absolutely, she will be there. She wouldn't miss that. I don't think she'd miss it even if Andrade wasn't involved, she just might not be on camera."
