Ric Flair on 'Last Match' card: Jay Lethal wants to be part of the show. And I said it ain't gonna happen

Jay Lethal was scheduled to appear as the guest on Ric Flair's "To Be The Man" podcast this week but Lethal no showed, according to Conrad Thompson. Ric Flair elaborated on why and said that Lethal wanted to be on the card for his last match in Nashville and he's got "an attitude" about it because there was no room for him on the show.

"I gotta tell you, we had a plan today," Thompson said. "We promoted it and all that jazz. We were gonna have Jay Lethal on, and we couldn't really do what we've been doing here without Jay Lethal. Because when you were first thinking about, Hey, can I do this, should I do this, you started working out with Jay, and man, those videos went viral. And I thought you guys have had some fun together, you know, and maybe show some of those old clips, the wooooo offs, and all the stuff from Impact. But no Jay today. What's up with that?"

"Is he gonna hear this, if I say it? I don't care. He's got an attitude," Flair said. "He wants to be part of the show. And I said it ain't gonna happen. You know how that happens all of a sudden and everybody's feelings are hurt. You know, this is what we discussed, some people's feelings are gonna be hurt."

Flair continued, "I'm not saying anything bad. I don't have the authority, even though [I am a] co-owner of this venture. I don't have the authority to put him on the card. So I think he's upset about that, but he'll get over it."
