Ric Flair’s Last Match preview and predictions

Ric Flair will have the last match of his wrestling career tonight as Jim Crockett Promotions presents “Ric Flair’s Last Match” on pay-per-view and FITE TV. The event will air live from the Nashville Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, TN.

For fans who grew up in the 1970s and 1980s, this should be a real treat and a call-back to what many consider to be the “golden age” of wrestling. Aside from Flair’s match, the rest of the card is packed with bouts featuring many talents from most of the major promotions across the industry.

As usual, the following article previews the show and provides a prediction for each match. This show isn’t about storylines, but rather a celebration of the type of wrestling many fans look back on with fondness.

#1. Ric Flair and Andrade El Idolo vs. Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal

For fans that are concerned about Ric Flair being able to participate in a match at 73 years old, it is comforting to know that he will be in the ring with his son-in-law, Andrade El Idolo, and his trainer, Jay Lethal. Additionally, he has worked with Jeff Jarrett throughout his career, so he will be well-protected.

Expect this to be a fun, straightforward match, with Flair ending his legendary career with a victory. It will be interesting to see how many of his signature spots Ric Flair is still able to execute.

Prediction: Ric Flair and Andrade El Idolo will defeat Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal.

#2. IMPACT World Championship Match

IMPACT Wrestling and Major League Wrestling will join forces at Ric Flair’s Last Match as IMPACT World Champion Josh Alexander will defend his title against former MLW World Champion Jacob Fatu.

For fans of both promotions, this should be a great match. While there is no reason to believe that Alexander will drop the title, Fatu should give him one of his best matches to date. And, with Fatu’s family lineage, he is someone to watch as the major promotions continue to fill out their rosters.

Prediction: Josh Alexander will retain the IMPACT World Championship.

#3. Three-Way for the IMPACT Knockouts World Championship

Fans will remember with fondness the “Bunkhouse Stampede” match from the 1980s in the National Wrestling Alliance.

This will be a match that features some surprise appearances by legends and some newer, unadvertised talent. It will be tough to pick a winner, but given the name of the match and his career, James Storm is a favorite.
