Hulk Hogan Leaked As Shock Ric Flair Return Match Opponent? WWE

It seems one of Ric Flair’s greatest rivals will be opposite the two-time WWE Hall of Famer for his return match this July.

As previously mentioned, Ric Flair will make his in-ring wrestling return on July 31 as part of Starrcast V weekend in Nashville, Tennessee.

Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat was once pegged to be involved in the matchup, but the legend has since revealed that he turned down the bout.

On Wrestling Shoot Interviews, former WWE star Brian Blair let it slip that Hulk Hogan will be coming out of retirement to wrestle Ric Flair at Starrcast V.

Blair said:

“I’m looking forward to seeing Flair and Hogan…at SummerSlam”

The legend likely meant Starrcast V during SummerSlam weekend in Nashville.

Blair was asked if he was confirming that Hulk Hogan was returning to face Ric Flair. He backtracked and claimed that he read it on the internet.

When asked about Flair and Hogan stepping in at their age with their health issues, Blair answered:

“Well, I think if Ric were gonna die anywhere, he’d wanna die in the ring. Terry’s had his fair share of surgeries, way too many and I’m getting ready to call Terry in a couple of minutes. I just wish them the very best. I know the fans are the ones that have been really egging it on that really want to see it. So it’s sparked them. All I can say it will be interesting and I just pray that they both come out in one piece.”

Previous reports indicated that Flair’s return will see him team up with FTR against the Rock N’ Roll Express and a mystery partner.
