Ric Flair's Last Match happened tonight in Nashville. The Nature Boy teamed with his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo to take on the legendary Jeff Jarrett and AEW star Jay Lethal.

Ahead of this match, Lethal turned on Flair because Flair told Lethal that he is an opening match guy and there was no spot for him on the show. Jarrett felt disrespected by Flair at the press conference for this event and he has said that he felt that Flair has disrespected his family for years. This all led to a brutal and bloody parking lot attack that was shot after the press conference. 

Before the match got started, they showed DDP, Mick Foley, Michelle McCool, and The Undertaker in attendance. 

Jarrett is in fantastic shape. As he made his way to the ring, he yelled at Schiavone and Crocket and he tossed a beer at a fan as Head of Security Doug Dillinger kept Jarrett and the fan apart. Jerry Jarrett was shown looking on as Jarrett shoved Conrad Thompson. Kid Rock was shown watching from the ringside area. Flair came out wearing his iconic white robe and the original big gold belt. Mike Chioda refereed this match and David Penzer did the ring introductions.
