WWE legend Ric Flair is back wrestling … the Hall of Famer just announced he’ll be returning to the squared circle this summer for the last time in his storied career.
The 16-time World Heavyweight champion’s opponent is not yet known.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen "The Nature Boy" in action … Ric’s last match was against the icon Sting when he was still a member of TNA Impact.
In 2008, Flair officially retired from the WWE after the "Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels defeated him in a match — where his career was on the line — at WrestleMania 24.
Rumors about Ric’s in-ring return intensified after the 73-year-old posted a video of him training with former TNA superstar Jay Lethal.
In the clip, the "dirtiest player in the game" showed fans who question if he’s lost a step that he still knows his way around the ring … executing some of his signature moves.
"Someone Had The Audacity This Weekend To Ask Me If I Can Still Do This. I Said “Really??? Naitch Don’t Play!” WOOOOO! @thelethaljay" Flair wrote at the time.
Flair’s wrestling career is extensive … since breaking into the industry in 1972, "Naitch" has wrestled for every notable promotion there is — namely, NJPW, WCW, WWE/WWF, and NWA.
You generally don’t see wrestlers north of 70 still competing — although 62-year-old Sting is still taking bumps in AEW — but if there’s anyone who can do it, Flair is that guy!!
