Woo! Imagine a day so stylin’ and so profilin’, that it gets the namesake of the Nature Boy Ric Flair himself.
In case you needed another reason to have a summer celebration, the Mayor of Nashville, Tennessee has a holiday suggestion for your consideration.
Just in case you’ve been under a rock and have missed it, Ric Flair has announced that he will have “Ric Flair’s Last Match” coming up on July 31 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Another milestone was announced in conjunction with the event, Nashville Mayor John Cooper will declare July 31, “Ric Flair Day” in the famed city.
Writing in a press release, Flair’s team shared the following details:
MAYOR COOPER TO DECLARE JULY 31
‘RIC FLAIR DAY’ IN THE MUSIC CITY
Where: Nashville Fairgrounds, Expo 3
Time: 1 p.m.
Date: Thursday, June 23
Sixteen-time professional wrestling world champion and cultural icon Ric Flair will be honored by the city of Nashville at a news conference on June 23 when Mayor John Cooper declares July 31 “Ric Flair Day” in the Music City. On that day, the “Nature Boy” will enter the ring for his last match. The mayor also will announce that the property at 500 Wedgewood Ave. for the weekend of July 29-31 will be known as the “Nashville FLAIRgrounds,” in conjunction with the three-day professional wrestling fanfest STARRCAST V.
On July 31, Flair, whose career spans six decades, will be part of the main event under the banner of Jim Crockett Promotions for “Ric Flair’s Last Match.” The event, which just was moved from the Fairgrounds to Nashville Municipal Auditorium because of high ticket demand, will be produced by Thuzio, a Triller Company, and streamed worldwide exclusively on FITE.
On hand for the news conference in addition to Mayor Cooper and Flair will be: Conrad Thompson, the promoter of STARRCAST; David Crockett, representing Jim Crockett Promotions; and WWE Hall of Famer and Tennessee native Jeff Jarrett.
This event is for media only and is closed to the public.
The show was recently announced to be moving to a bigger venue after having previously sold out in less than a day.
Ahead of Ric Flair’s Last Match, Flair will make appearances at Starrcast V for a Four Horsemen reunion, and The Roast of Ric Flair.
