It looks like WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is gearing up for an in-ring return.
The 73-year-old has been filmed lately taking bumps and training inside the ring with AEW star Jay Lethal. “The Nature Boy” hasn’t wrestled since 2011.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer noted that the rumors of Flair getting ready to return to the ring are “accurate.” Flair’s last match in 2011 was a loss to fellow WWE Hall of Famer Sting on an episode of IMPACT Wrestling.
Flair was doing some on-screen work with WWE for a while, but left the company in 2021. Since then, he has made appearances at events such as AAA TripleMania XXIX and NWA 73.
For those unaware, Flair has a pacemaker inserted into his heart so this is risky to say the least.
