Ric Flair

I don't know about you, but my favorite part is the trash-talking the wrestlers do to their opponents leading up to matches. There have been some great talkers in wrestling but hands down one of the best have been Ric Flair.

Ric Flair is said to be one of the most outstanding wrestlers of all time and has spent nearly 50 years in the ring.

Ric "The Nature Boy" Flair has wrestled in about every league there has ever been. From Jim Crockett Promotions, World Championship Wrestling, the World Wrestling Federation later became the WWE. Flair has probably won more titles than any other wrestler in the business.

Ric Flair's First Retirement

Ric Flair's first retirement was in 2008 when he vowed on RAW, "I will never retire."  Vince McMahon said the next match Flair loses will result in forced retirement. Flair went on to win several close matches until he finally lost to Shawn Michaels.

Did Ric Flair Win His Last Match?

What is amazing about Ric Flair's final match is that 5 years ago he was on life support and given a 15 percent chance of survival. Now at the age of 73, Flair stepped into the ring one final time with his son-in-law, Andrade El Idolo, for a tag team main event.

The pair took on Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett in a Pay-Per-View event that was held in Nashville, Tennessee.

Why did Flair get back into the ring? Flair said, "Ego and glory, and family."

Flair and Idolo did come up victorious. The match wasn't pretty at all but fans around the world got one more chance to see the icon in the ring. You can see the highlights below.
