Flair announced five days ago, exactly three years after he was last hospitalized in intensive care (in 2017 he fought for his life due to heart problems and in 1975 a plane crash survived) he intends to return to the ring and participate on July 31 in the Jim Croquet wrestling event in Nashville , Tennessee.

Flair trained at the John Cena Wrestling Institute, said he returned to fitness and last night (Friday) confirmed: "I do not suffer from pain. I know I have health problems, but I asked 40 different doctors and decided I would only listen to one - not necessarily the one that would give me the right answer "Except for the one I feel most comfortable with."

Flair claimed to have received the medical clearance to return and explained why he was doing it, 11 years after his previous fight, against Sting.

"I could not stand the last fights I had, I hated my last year as a wrestler. I owe a correction," he said.

"I need someone who will motivate me. And what makes me good is to do something I love, and that is wrestling. I may not be 100 percent like I used to be, but certainly 80-85 percent."



Flair began his professional career in 1970.

Five years later, as mentioned, there was a plane crash from which he left with a severe back injury.

He returned to wrestling after a year and was forced to change his style due to the physical problem.

In 1991 he made his WWF debut and also won the World Championship after winning the Royal Rumble.

Two years later he returned to the WCE and in 2001 moved to the WWE.

In total he has been the world champion 22 times (16 in the WWF and another 6 in the WCW) and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2008.
