– Nu Wrestling Evolution, the overseas promotion that brought the Ultimate Warrior out of retirement last summer, is advertising that Ric Flair will be appearing on three of their shows in South Africa this summer. The Nature Boy will be appearing in Johannesburg, South Africa on 8/30, Cape Town on 9/1 and Durban on on 9/3. It was recently reported that Ric Flair has been negotiating to wrestle on several overseas shows for huge money and South Africa was mentioned . Given Ric Flair’s recent comments about getting back in the ring and the public reactions of Jim Ross and Triple H, there’s a good chance Flair will be wrestling on this tour.
