Ric Flair To Wrestle In Japan Later This Month

Published On January 3, 2013 by (WWE News)

Following up on our earlier report about appearing for All Japan Pro Wrestling later this month, it has been confirmed that the 16-time World Heavyweight champion will indeed be stepping into the ring to compete.

Ric Flair will team with Keiji Mutoh (Great Muta) against Tatsumi Fujinami Seiya Sanada. The match will take place on January 21st at AJPW’s live event from Ota, Japan.

The match has some historical significance, as Flair has history with both his partner Mutoh and his opponent Fujinami. Flair feuded with Mutoh in the NWA back in 1989 and the two have never teamed up together. Flair had also a memorable feud with Tatsumi Fujinami, with the two squaring of at the very first WCW Superbrawl pay-per-view back in May 1991.
