Ric Flair To Wrestle In Japan Later This Month

Following up on our earlier report about Ric Flair 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.

    Wow, I have to watch this match when it is uploaded. I thought the Flair and Fujinami matches were the best. Their matches would start out scientific, and would later turn into a brawl at the end of the match.

    At this day and age, I’m interested on how this match will progress, and with this match taking place in Japan, what a way to perceive this match.

    People have been saying Flair’s best days are behind him for almost 25 years. They’ve only been right for about five or ten of those years, but he’s always earned his spot on the card.

    I think his going to get a huge injury from competing one day, his body will just give up on him. That’s what I think is going to happen one day anyway

      Ric Flair is the guy from the movie The Wrestler, seriously. Sadly he too will probably die in the ring.

    Hate to say it but I honestly won’t be to surprised to hear he dies in a wrestling ring one day
