WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is returning to the NWA for a special appearance.
After issuing the invitation earlier this month, the NWA announced this evening that The Nature Boy will be attending the upcoming NWA 73rd Anniversary pay-per-view, Wrestling At The Chase, in St. Louis.
“It was always historic. But now #NWA73 at The Chase will be LEGENDARY. [revolving light emoji] The rumors are true. He’s finally HOME. [high voltage sign emoji] @RicFlairNatrBoy is coming back to the NWA & Wrestling At The Chase!!”
The announcement included a video package of highlights from Flair’s NWA days.
There’s no word on what Flair will be doing at the NWA 73rd Anniversary show. Flair, who was granted his WWE release a few weeks back after requesting it from WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon, appeared at the AAA TripleMania pay-per-view. He is expected to sign with AEW in the near future.
The NWA 73 event will take place on Sunday, August 29 from the Khorassan Ballroom at The Chase in St. Louis.
