Ric Flair: I Could Wrestle Again And I'd Be Better Than I Was In The Last Match

On July 31, Ric Flair wrestled in his advertised last match when he teamed with Andrade El Idolo to defeat Jay Lethal & Jeff Jarrett.

On November 27, Ricky Steamboat returned to the ring to team with FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler), defeating Nick Aldis, Jay Lethal & Brock Anderson. The match was billed as a "return" rather than a "last match."

It is unknown if Steamboat will return to the ring, but Flair believes Steamboat should do what makes him happy.

"I have not spoken to him, so I don't know the answer to that," Flair said on his To Be The Man podcast when asked if Steamboat would wrestle again. "When I spoke to him, we were trying to get him to work with us. He indicated to me back then that he didn't think, health-wise, he was ready to do it. It's what makes him feel good. Like I say about myself, I could wrestle again right now too, and I'd be a lot better than I was in the Last Match because when you're gone away that long you forget about little things that'll make a difference and you spend too much time getting in shape for it that you don't think about little things like dehydrating. I was so into the training part that I forgot about little things. I think he should do what he wants to do. He's Ricky Steamboat, there's only going to be one Ricky Steamboat, whether it's good or bad, it's not going to affect his legacy. He's the best babyface in the history of the business."
