The Rock and Dolph Ziggler both appeared at Friday’s Roast of Ric Flair event.
During the show, video messages from both Rock and Ziggler were shown. Rock talked about his history with Flair, noting how his mother would sew Flair’s robes. He mentioned that he met him as a child and later, when attending an NWA convention, remembered who he was. He thanked Flair for being such a kind human being to him and his family, and mentioned how he would work for his grandmother in Hawaii.
Ziggler said he will never forget the times he and Flair had in Florida, shouted out Mean Gene Okerlund, and called Flair the greatest of all time, ending the message wearing Flair trunks.
Friday’s roast leads to Sunday’s Ric Flair’s Last Match event, which will take place at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium. Flair will team with son-in-law Andrade El Idolo as they take on Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett. Wrestlers from AEW, MLW, AAA, Impact, and New Japan Pro Wrestling will be part of Sunday’s card, which will air on FITE TV.
