Ric Flair final wrestling match moves to a bigger venue


A new place has been picked for Ric Flair's final wrestling match. On July 31st, "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair will step back inside the ring one last time at the age of 73. Flair is widely considered about among the very best wrestlers to ever lace up their boots, which is why there has actually been so much excitement over the possibility of fans getting to experience what might potentially be his last match ever.

It was originally scheduled to take place at the Nashville Fairgrounds in Nashville, TN. While the city and state are staying the exact same, a new statement has actually boiled down that switches up the real venue to account for the overwhelming ticket demand.

Sports Illustrated has actually verified Ric Flair's goodbye match is transferring to the Nashville Municipal Auditorium. The reason for the change from the Nashville Fairgrounds is because the Nashville Municipal Auditorium has triple the seating capability at 9,000 seats. 

Because many fans desire the opportunity to see Flair wear his attractive sequin robes. Plus, it only took 24 hours for the Fairgrounds to sell out of its seats, including standing room only, which sent out the team behind Starrcast to look for an upgrade in the facility. Sports Illustrated likewise validated all seats acquired at the Fairgrounds will be honored at the Auditorium for the same location.

" On July 31st, at 6:05 pm EDT, 'The Nature Boy' Ric Flair, who many think about the best professional wrestler of all-time, is set to return to the ring, one final time, as part of Jim Crockett Promotions Presents: Ric Flair's Last Match wrestling event," the original news release for Flair's match read. "Taking place at the world well-known Nashville Fairgrounds, the 16-time previous World Heavyweight Champion will wear a new tailor-made bathrobe and bring the one-of-a-kind showmanship that has actually made Flair a cultural icon for his over-40 years in the professional wrestling business."

Fans may not want to get their hopes up of Flair participating in a singles match. Reports state he'll be tagging with FTR for a six-man match versus The Rock N' Roll Express and a mystery opponent. That person would have been among Flair's greatest rivals, Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat. Nevertheless, Steamboat chose not to participate in the match.

"I'm going to walk that aisle, one last time to prove once and for all, that to be the Man, you've got to beat the Man," Flair said in the announcement.
