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.
