Matt Cardona Wants To Defend The NWA Worlds Heavyweight Title For Ric Flair’s Last Match NWA/WWE

Matt Cardona wants to defend the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship for Ric Flair’s last match.

Ric Flair is set to wrestle in his final match on July 31 as part of Starrcast V weekend in Nashville, Tennessee.

Matt Cardona is sidelined with a torn bicep that is expected to keep him out of action for five months or more. However, Cardona believes it would be fitting for Flair’s last match to be for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Title.

Speaking to Phil Strum on Under The Ring, the former WWE star was asked to book himself against anyone from any era.

Cardona answered:

“Would it be too cheap to say that I want to have Ric Flair’s last match for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship? That’s the talk of the wrestling business right now, Ric Flair having one more match. Does he want to be 17-time champ? If he does, I have the Ten Pounds of Gold. I can put Sweet Charlotte on the line. Think about it, The Nature Boy Ric Flair vs. Alwayz Ready Matt Cardona for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship. Tell me that does not sell out an arena. I’ve heard the rumors of what the match will be and I’m sure it’s going to be a great match and fun for everybody. Don’t you think his last match ever should be for the Ten Pounds of Gold? You think of NWA, you think of the Ten Pounds of Gold, you think of Ric Flair. It would be fitting that he goes out, I don’t want to say on top, because I beat him, but at least give him the opportunity to be a 17-time Worlds Heavyweight Champion. That’s historic. That’s the match. That writes itself.”

Ric Flair will be partnering with WWE again for a new documentary on “never before revealed” history of the legend.

Meanwhile, Matt Cardona is undergoing surgery on his torn bicep this week.
