The 73-year-old performer last wrestled in WWE at WrestleMania XXIV in 2008 against Shawn Michaels. He made appearances in Ring of Honor, TNA, Lucha Libre AAA World Wide and NWA in between stints with WWE. However, it seemed he has called it quits with getting into the ring. But, his fans have more to see of him.
Flair was a two-time WWF/E heavyweight champion, seven-time WCW heavyweight champion and 10-time NWA heavyweight champion. Over the last few years, he has been dealing with several health issues. He was hospitalized in 2019 and 2017. He also underwent a bowel surgery, which led to kidney failure and dialysis treatment.
It’s unclear who Flair’s final opponent will be. It’s also unknown whether it will be a singles or tag team match.
Flair, known for his “Woo!” catchphrase and famous strut, has been posting videos on social media of him training with current AEW wrestler Jay Lethal.
Flair is married to Wendy Barlow, the couple got married in 2019. His daughter Charlotte Flair is currently signed with WWE and is a former 9-time WWE Women’s Champion.
