Jay Lethal was supposed to be a guest on Flair's podcast but had a falling out with Ric prior to the show due to Jay not being booked on the card for Flair's retirement match. Ric said it was out of his control but he's still furious over it. I do think the guy who helped Ric get back into ring shape (somewhat) deserves a spot on the card but I guess that's a conversation for someone else.

Serious question: is anyone here going to check out Ric's last match? Even hate-watch?

It would literally depend on the rest of the card. I ordered Multiverse of Matches Wrestlemania weekend because I wanted to see enough of the guys on the show, although not necessarily any particular match. My guess is there won't be nearly enough talent on the card to warrant a purchase in my opinion.

I feel like I'll get enough clips of it on Twitter and other SM right away that I don't feel the need to pay for it on the fear of missing out.

I'll probably torrent it after I find out he didn't die in the ring.

Still gotta mention my favorite TNA thing of at least the Monday Night Scrimmage era was being the one company to make zero money on a televised match with Flair, Hogan, Styles, Abyss, and a Sting appearance.

Not only do I think people here are going to watch it, I think at least one CXF member will be in attendance!

I think Conrad's not going to draw out a conservative playbook for his first foray into booking (I mean he led off with his 73 year old father in law wrestling for the first time in a decade). I'm sure there will be at least one or two more matches that inspire a "Holy crap! THAT'S gonna happen!?" from us. I bet Ric's little buddy Tony Khan is going to loan out some talent too for the show. They're looking to sell out a 9000 seat arena now so they're going to need more than the trainwreck appeal of 73 year old Flair wrestling.

i don't give a shit about ric flair's health or him dying in the ring personally but everyone involved in putting this on or working with him are incredibly irresponsible and cynical. Even if somehow nothing goes wrong, they are running an incredible risk.
