Mick Foley is happy with his final match with Ric Flair.
Ric Flair is set to have his final match this weekend as part of Starrcast V, and has been building to it for quite some time now. The match is set to be a tag match where the 73 year old will team with Andrade El Idolo to take on Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett.
On July 31, Conrad Thompson asked Foley at Starrcast V if he would consider doing a last match similar to Flair.
“Little known fact, my last actual match was against Ric in TNA. The only other thing I did in-ring after that was Royal Rumble 2012 and I did the thing where I came down against League of Nations WrestleMania (32). That’s not really a match if your opponents are forbidden from even touching you. I’m on the no touch list. This is my remembrance. I had lost 50 big ones [pounds], clearly put them all back on, I found those 50 big ones, and then some. I was down to 288 from 328, feeling good, but I hadn’t been in the ring in years. Sheamus comes up to me and goes, ‘I want you to hit me as hard as you can.’ I said, ‘I think I can make it look good without doing that.’ He goes, ‘As hard as you can, fella. As hard as you can.’ I hit that hardheaded SOB about 25 times to the point where I actually thought they sped up the tape because I didn’t think I could move that fast. To this day, I can still point to the spot on my forearm that is sore from hitting him six years ago and he was fine a minute later. Ric and I had a really good match with a lot of intensity. That was a great final match for me. I don’t count the part where I almost lit Frank The Clown’s testicles on fire. That was a confrontation,”Mick Foley At Starrcast V
Mick Foley looks like he is completely done with being an active pro wrestler and has no intention of stepping back into the ring for a match.
