Last month, Flair posted a video of himself training with former ROH World Champion Jay Lethal. The former WWF Champion released a second continuation video where he was spotted making some challenging moves with Lethal. He also did the infamous eye poke during the training video.

Flair took to Twitter, posted the video, and said that A Great Champions always comes back.

The last match of his illustrious career came against Sting on the 12th September 2011 episode of TNA Impact. Unfortunately, the 16-time world champion ended up losing as he tapped out to the Scorpion Death Lock. In 2021 Flair stated that he would be ready to die in a match against AEW’s Sammy Guevara.

It will be interesting to see when he returns to the ring, and by looking at his progress, it seems like he has still got what it takes to perform in the squared circle.

“Ric, Roman, Randy, and I’m trying to think of one that fits in that group perfectly,” Flair said. “You wanna know something? Cody Rhodes. There’s the answer. I had to think for a second. That would have been great.” – said the former WWE star.

The Four Horsemen were a famous stable which performed between 1985-1999 in Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling and WCW and originally consisted of Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Ole Anderson, and Tully Blanchard.
