Ric Flair says that he “asked 40 different doctors” about his health

As previously noted, Ric Flair officially confirmed that he will be coming out of retirement for a match on July 31st in Nashville which is the day after Summerslam in the same city. The match will be part of the Starrcast V event.

During an interview with TMZ.com, Flair talked about why he decided to come out of retirement…

“I don’t have any aches or pains. I know I’ve had the health issues, but I asked 40 different doctors, and I decided I’m only gonna listen to one. Not necessarily the one that was gonna give me the right answer, but that I felt the most comfortable with.”

Flair also said the following…

“I couldn’t stand the last couple of matches I had. Couldn’t stand the last year I had.”

“I needed someone to motivate me. And, what motivates me is doing something I like to do, and that’s wrestle. I’ll never run at 100% again. But, I’ll be running at 80, 85%.”
