Ric Flair: WWE legend slated to face the Nature Boy

Last updated

Pro wrestling legend Ric Flair will be coming out of retirement, and there is reportedly a major WWE Hall of Famer that will be facing him.

According to a recent report from Fightful Select, Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat will be facing The Nature Boy at the July 31st Starrcast event.

“Fightful has learned that there are plans in order for 69-year old Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat to come out of retirement to wrestle another match, sources close to Steamboat say” Fightful revealed.

“Fightful has learned that this is hardly a coincidence that the two foes are returning to the ring at the same time, and that there’s a working plan to have the two involved in a match against one another, albeit not in a one-on-one format.

“Dave Meltzer revealed Flair told him that FTR & Flair vs. Rock N’ Roll Express and ‘someone else.’ We’re told that the working plan for that ‘someone else’ is to be Steamboat. The match is slated for July 31 at the Starrcast event in Nashville, TN” Fightful concluded.

It’s not going to be anywhere near their classics, but it will certainly be a spectacle to see the former foes back together in the ring one final time.
