Ric Flair's "last match" has finally been revealed.
Flair will team with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo for the first time ever as the two take on Jeff Jarrett & Jay Lethal in a tag team match at Jim Crockett Promotions Presents: Ric Flair's Last Match. The pay-per-view is being held at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium on Sunday, July 31 and will air live on Fite TV.
The announcement of the match was made on episode two of the Ric Flair's Last Match docuseries.
The Last Match event will be the first time the 73-year-old Flair has wrestled since 2011. Flair has been training in the ring with Lethal leading into the show.
There was an angle on Flair's podcast last month where it was claimed that Lethal no-showed appearing on the podcast. Flair said Lethal was upset with him because Flair wouldn't let him be part of the Last Match event.
That angle continued on the Last Match docuseries when Lethal attacked Flair following the press conference for Jim Crockett Promotions Presents: Ric Flair's Last Match. After Flair was rude to him when he tried to help, Jarrett joined in on the attack and helped bloody Flair.
Jarrett will also have a role at WWE SummerSlam in Nashville on Saturday, July 30, serving as the special guest referee for The Usos vs. The Street Profits for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team titles.
