Could Ric Flair wrestle again?

Last updated

Ric Flair competed in what many believed would be his last match this year, but could the Nature Boy come back to the ring again?

Speaking to Wrestling Inc, Conrad Thompson shot down the idea of the former NWA and WCW Champion ever returning to the ring.

Thompson is a son-in-law of the Nature Boy, and he actually promoted the Last Match event, so he is in a good position to claim that Flair’s recent claims of heading to the Royal Rumble and competing in January are spurious.

Will Ric Flair go back to WWE?

“I don’t mean to be disrespectful, but that’s clickbait” Thompson began. “Anybody who actually listens to the podcast [To Be The Man] knows that he’s said that tongue-in-cheek, laughing.”

“Even when he talked about the Rumble, he’s like ‘Somebody reported that I’m going to be at the Rumble. I’m not. I’m going to be at the 30th Anniversary Raw. I am going to be in San Antonio, but I’m doing a signing for Fitterman. But I’ll bring my gear, I’ll bring my robe. Hell yeah, I’ll be number 30′” Thompson added.

“It’s a joke. It’s not serious. He’s not really going to be in the Rumble, but I know that gets people talking and it gets people buzzing. But the reality is, Ric’s not going to wrestle again” Thompson concluded.
