Ric Flair: 'I Wish I Hadn't Said It Was My Last Match'

Will Ric Flair come out of retirement again?

While Ric Flair may have wrestled at 'Ric Flair's Last Match' on Sunday, July 31, seemingly going out with a win alongside son-in-law Andrade El Idolo against Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal, many doubt the 73-year-old is actually finished inside the squared circle. 

Flair does have a history of coming out of retirement, having done so in 2009, only one year after his retirement match against Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 24, and now the 16-time world champion has admitted on his 'To Be The Man' podcast that he wishes he hadn't said July 31 would be his last bout inside the squared circle. 

"I wish I hadn't said it was my last match. That's gonna get heat. Hell, they wanted me to wrestle in Puerto Rico on Saturday night. I said, 'Guys, I cannot get in the ring one week later.' And the guy looked at me and said, 'Well, you know what, could retire in Puerto Rico can't you?' No, no, no that's not the point," Flair said. 

Following his retirement match, Flair was in Andrade El Idolo's corner for his match with Carlito at the WWC 49th Anniversary Show on August 6. The match ended up featuring a brawl between Flair and former rival Carlos Colon.
