Jeff Jarrett wrestled Ric Flair in a tag match during Starrcast V weekend. The match was marketed as Flair’s final outing, despite the Hall of Famer having retired multiple times beforehand.
During a recent appearance on the “Insight with Chris Van Vliet” podcast, Jarrett’s wife Karen discussed whether the match against Flair was also her husband’s final outing in the ring. According to Karen, she initially thought it could have been. She said,
“That day, I said to him, ‘This could be your last match.’ I said, ‘I don’t want to walk out with you. Like, you go out, you go on stage.’ He looked f***ing amazing … So we ended up doing [the entrance] his way, and it worked out, but I remember consciously trying to stay away from him and even getting in the ring with Jay, letting him do his thing. Which normally I would be in there, taunting people with him and acting like a crazy lady,” she said. “For me, I want those [memories and photography] shots of him in that outfit to put in our house, to put in his office … It could be his last match. Do I think it is? No. I don’t think there’s a better heel out there than my husband.”
Flair teamed with his son-in-law, Andrade El Idolo, to take on Jarrett and Jay Lethal. The Nature Boy and Andrade managed to come out as the victors.
