Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett, & Andrade El Idolo React To Ric Flair’s Last Match


Following last night’s Ric Flair’s Last Match pay-per-view event, Andrade El Idolo, Jeff Jarrett, and Jay Lethal spoke with ESPN to give their thoughts on what it meant to them to have been involved in Flair’s final match and just how important it was for them.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

Andrade El Idolo on how important the match is: “This match is the most important of my career. This is unbelievable. I don’t even have words for this. [Flair] feels better than guys 20 years old. He’s an inspiration to me.”

Jeff Jarrett on being a part of Flair’s final match: “It’s his last one. If anything goes wrong, it’s on me. It’s on others. I’m so damn happy for Ric, I don’t know what to say. … As a spectator, y’all watched it and went home tonight. When you’re participating, it’s a whole other level of pressure that I’ve never been under.”

Jay Lethal on what he said to Flair after it was over: “I said, ‘I f—ing love you, you’re the f—ing man, I’m trying to be like you when I grow up, because you’re f—ing great. You’re the greatest wrestler in the f—ing world’. He starts crying and says, ‘Thank you. Thank you so much.’”
