According to former WWE Spanish language commentator Hugo Savinovich, Ric Flair should remain retired following his recent return to in-ring competition.
On July 31, Flair teamed with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to defeat Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett in Nashville, Tennessee. Despite the match being promoted as the last of his career, the 73-year-old has hinted he may be tempted to wrestle again.
In an interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Riju Dasgupta, Savinovich compared Flair’s last fight to AJ Styles and The Undertaker’s WrestleMania 36 Boneyard match:
“I’m just praying, hoping that Flair doesn’t have to fight any more in the ring,” Savinovich said. “I hope that was his last match, because I think it was kind of like AJ Styles and The Undertaker, that movie type of match, that Undertaker didn’t plan at the time that he was going to retire, but it was bloody awesome what they did and the hours they put into making this Boneyard.” [10:40 – 11:07]

Hugo Savinovich hopes Ric Flair feels the same as Undertaker
As Savinovich mentioned, The Undertaker has reiterated many times that he officially resigned after his match against AJ Styles.
Savinovich, a Spanish commentator for Ric Flair’s last match, believes the two-time WWE Hall of Famer should have a mindset similar to The Phenom:
“Undertaker, after he saw it, he said, ‘Why the hell are you going to a retirement match? That was it.’ I hope Flair thinks that way because he doesn’t have anything to prove.” [11:10 – 11:21]
Savinovich, 63, will make his own wrestling comeback on November 5th. He will face his legendary rival El Profe at the DEMONMANIA La Batalla Finale (The Final Battle) in Puerto Rico.
