Ric Flair’s final match will no longer be held at the Nashville Fairgrounds.
Ric Flair has decided to have one last match in 2022 to end his career on his terms. Originally, the match was slated for the Nashville Fairgrounds but now, the match has been moved to the much larger Nashville Municipal Auditorium, as first reported by Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated.
The new venue can seat 9,000 audience members, nearly three times the capacity of the fairgrounds. Ric Flair also commented on the venue switch in a press release:

“On July 31, I’m still going to walk that aisle and style and profile as only I can. But now, a bigger crowd, brighter lights! ‘The Nature Boy’ can’t wait to do what I do best. WOOOO!” said 16-time professional wrestling champion and cultural icon Ric Flair.
“Like so many times before, having Ric Flair’s name on the marquee has the wrestling world buzzing,” said Jim Crockett Promotions President, David Crockett. “On Sunday, July 31, we look forward to bringing the fans at Nashville Municipal Auditorium, and our worldwide audience, a night of professional wrestling that they will never forget.”
“When we announced that STARRCAST was coming back, with our partner Thuzio, we knew the last weekend in July was going to be a celebration for wrestling fans. The party’s main event has now moved to a bigger room,” said STARRCAST and AdFreeShows.com founder Conrad Thompson. “There will still be numerous events and experiences happening throughout the weekend at The Nashville Fairgrounds, who have been wonderful to work with. However, the demand for Ric’s last match to move to a bigger venue was one we couldn’t ignore.”
“Due to the overwhelming demand by fans to be in the building for ‘Ric Flair’s Last Match,’ we have made the decision to move this once-in-a-lifetime show to the Nashville Municipal Auditorium,” said Jared Augustine, CEO of Thuzio. “Once the initial batch of tickets at the Nashville Fairgrounds went so quickly, our team immediately started to look for a larger venue, and the Nashville Municipal Auditorium is an ideal solution.”
Current ticket holder’s seats will be honored, and communication on the changes will be emailed to them this week.
It is not yet known who Ric Flair will wrestle in his last match.
