Ric Flair Announces He's Returning To The Ring For One Last Time

Ric Flair has revealed he's stepping back into the ring for one last time.

The 73-year-old wrestling legend has been teasing his fans with rumours that he might get back into the ring that made him famous.

Now, he's officially put all that speculation to rest with a big announcement.

Flair wrote on Twitter: "The Rumors Are True! I’m Going To Walk That Aisle, Style And Profile, One Last Time! July 31st! Nashville, Tennessee! Jim Crockett Promotions!

"I Will Prove Once Again, That To Be The Man, You’ve Got To Beat The Man!

"Now We Go To School!"

Tickets will go on sale on May 27 and it's set to be one hell of a performance.

A message on his website states: "'The Nature Boy' Ric Flair, who many consider the greatest 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.

"Taking place at the world famous Nashville Fairgrounds, the 16-time former World Heavyweight Champion will don a new custom-made robe and bring the one-of-a-kind showmanship that has made Flair a cultural icon for his over-40 years in the professional wrestling business."

We can't wait.

Ric Flair officially retired back in December 2012, however it's clear the allure of stepping back into the ring has been too tantalising to pass up.

The wrestler's team says The Nature Boy's 'opponent, as well as the entire card, will be announced at a later date'.
