Superstars and Hall of Famers turned up in Nashville for Ric Flair’s Last Match last night and gave the Nature Boy a sendoff for the ages.
Sitting at ringside were The Undertaker, Mick Foley, Bret “Hit Man” Hart, Diamond Dallas Page, Michelle McCool, Vickie Guerrero, Kid Rock, Jerry Jarrett, JJ Dillon, and many others. Those who couldn’t make it, such as Jim Ross, Sting, Shawn Michaels, Trish Stratus, JBL, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes, Lex Luger, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Kurt Angle, Nick Aldis, Jerry “The King” Lawler, Dixie Carter and Booker T all sent video messages which aired throughout the broadcast.
Following the match, a visibly tired and emotional Flair was interviewed by Tony Schiavone, who told Ric that he doesn’t care if he bleeds all over him.
Flair thanked his family for coming out to see him and his friends who supported him. He also thanked the crowd, who said without them, they would be nothing. Flair then mentioned that he was about to go downtown and drink with Kid Rock, so “how about that shit?!”
Everyone involved in the show, including referees, all came to ringside for the interview.
Flair wore the original Big Gold Belt for his entrance, a belt which is owned by his son-in-law Conrad Thompson.
