Flair addressed the crowd after the match, reflecting on his career và thanking his family, his friends and the fans one last time:


The 73-year-old Flair, who last wrestled a match for TNA in 2011, began preparations for his final match a few months ago, & it wasn"t until recently that his partner & opponents were revealed.

Flair had been training with Lethal, but an angle was run that saw Lethal & Jarrett attack Flair in a parking lot, leaving him in a pool of blood.


That mix the stage for the match with Flair choosing Andrade, who is married to his daughter, WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair, as his partner.

The match had originally been scheduled lớn take place at the Nashville Fairgrounds one day after WWE"s SummerSlam event in Nashville, & while the bout did occur during SummerSlam weekend, it was moved lớn a bigger venue because of high ticket demand.


Flair became a không tính tiền agent last August after he requested his release from WWE. Upon receiving his release, Flair tweeted the following, noting that he had no ill will toward the company:


Flair had been making fairly regular appearances on WWE programming since late 2012 after his contract with TNA expired.

Flair"s final on-screen work in WWE saw him get involved in a storyline with Charlotte và Lacey Evans early last year. It was suggested in the angle that Flair was romantically involved with Evans, which is why he turned on his daughter and aligned himself with Lacey.

The storyline came to an end in February 2021 when Evans announced she was legitimately pregnant. Flair was taken off television shortly thereafter.

Days after getting released by WWE, Flair appeared at AAA"s Triplemania sự kiện and was in the corner of his future son-in-law, Andrade El Idolo, for his match against Kenny Omega.

Flair even got physical in the match by chopping Omega và putting Konnan in the Figure-Four Leglock.

While Flair has primarily acted in a managerial or special appearance role over the past several years, he is best known for being one of the greatest wrestlers of all time.

His 16 world titles in NWA, WCW & WWE are recognized as the most ever along with John Cena, và to this day, Flair remains a huge part of pop culture because of his "stylin", profilin", limousine-riding, jet-flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin" & dealin" son of a gun" persona.


Flair getting physical at his age và with the serious health problems he has encountered in recent years may not have been the best idea, but he has long discussed his desire lớn get back in the ring.

Flair did precisely that on Sunday despite the fact that he nearly died from a bowel obstruction và kidney failure five years ago.

Now, Flair can ride off into retirement with his final match in the books, but given his love for wrestling và being in the spotlight, it wouldn"t be surprising to see him take on a role with WWE or AEW if either has interest in signing him.
