The “final opponent” for WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is set to be revealed tonight.
Flair took to Twitter to tease that he may be facing a WWE RAW Superstar in his final bout, which is scheduled for the “Jim Crockett Promotions Presents: Ric Flair’s Last Match” event during Starrcast V weekend.
“On July 31, I’m Coming After One Of Your Own. #WWERaw,” Flair wrote. “And Tonight At 6:05, The Entire World Will Find Out. #RicFlairsLastMatch.”
The opponent is scheduled to be revealed during episode 2 of the “Ric Flair’s Last Match” docuseries, which will premiere on FITE and the ricflairslastmatch.com website.
There’s still no word yet on who Flair will be wrestling, but The Nature Boy is reportedly dealing with a foot injury. It was noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that while Flair is hurt, the injury is not expected to interfere with his final match later this month.
There have been many rumors on potential partners and opponents for Flair’s final match in Nashville during Starrcast V weekend, but this is the first we’ve heard of a WWE Superstar being teased. WWE recently added Flair back to their TV intro, and a special Flair doc was announced by WWE in early June.
You can see Flair’s full tweet below, along with the first part of the docuseries that came out last week. A press conference for the big one night only JCP event was held late last month, but Flair’s match was not confirmed, or even teased.
