It was announced on Monday night that Ric Flair will team up with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to take on Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal at the “Ric Flair’s Last Match” PPV event on Sunday, July 31st in Nashville, TN.
During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Flair addressed being injured leading up to the match…
“I have plantar fasciitis in the bottom of my foot. Other than that, I am perfect. That damn thing is sore as shit. I’m at the doctor right now. They are gonna start injecting me with stuff.”
In regards to the injury possibly causing issues with the match, Flair said the following…
“I would just deaden it if I have to. You know me. It affects me daily. It’s hard running the ropes with the center of your foot…the middle of your foot is so sensitive. I’ve been training hard, doing two-a-days.” Flair also said he’s “happier it’s a tag. I can hide myself a little more [laughs].” (quotes courtesy of Fightful.com)
