Ric Flair’s Last Match event at Starrcast 5 over Summerslam weekend is the second biggest independent wrestling show in modern history.

The event was attended by 6,800 fans and did a gate of $448,502. Both the PPV buys and gate are the second highest for an indie show, behind only the All In event that was put on by Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks in 2018.

Other matches on the card included Josh Alexander vs. Jacob Fatu for the Impact World Championship, The Motor City Machine Guns vs. The Wolves, The Von Erichs vs. The Briscoes, and more.

  1. Flair tarnished his legacy with that terrible last match and mediocre roast. It was also not a good idea to even have the match considering his age and bad health, he and Conrad should be ashamed.
