The Honky Tonk Man Preparing For In-Ring Return

The Honky Tonk Man Preparing For In-Ring Return WWE

WWE Hall of Famer the Honky Tonk Man has hinted that he’s preparing for a return to the ring.

Ric Flair notably returned to the ring for one final match on July 31, teaming with Andrade El Idolo to battle Jeff Jarrett & Jay Lethal at the Starrcast event.

The Honky Tonk Man, real name Roy Wayne Farris, has now indicated that he’s following in Flair’s footsteps, sharing a photo of himself on Twitter with the caption:

“HTM preparing for one more match!”

The former Intercontinental Champion last wrestled in 2019, competing in that November’s WildKat Revolution Rumble.

Earlier in the year, Farris had been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by Jimmy Hart.

Farris is currently 69 years old. Ric Flair was 73 during his retirement bout. As of writing, Farris’ return/retirement bout hasn’t been officially announced.

Flair recently revealed that he passed out on two separate occasions during his final match, which you can read more about right here.
