Backstage News on Ric Flair’s Last Match Big Financial Success

The second-largest independent wrestling show in the US during the modern era was Ric Flair’s Last Match.

According to Dave Meltzer in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the event received between 20,000 and 25,000 streaming PPV purchases and almost 4200 more through linear PPV, according to early estimates.

Given that the event had no traditional TV promotion, this is impressive. The only other event that performed better than the Flair event and didn’t have national TV promotion was All In in 2018, which generated 55,000 buys.

The event attracted 6800 fans for a $448,502 gate, ranking it as the second-largest behind All In, which brought 10,541 paid and $458,525.

In the main event, the WWE Hall of Famer and Andrade El Idolo defeated Jeff Jarrett and Jay Lethal. Flair had not competed in a wrestling match in eleven years. His legendary pro wrestling career has apparently come to an end with his “Last Match.”
