While confirmation of what Ric Flair's actual last professional wrestling match will be is yet to come through, a new match was added to the 31 July event's lineup on Tuesday.
As announced through the official Starrcast Twitter page, the "Ric Flair's Last Match" show will host an MLW-presented bout in Killer Kross vs. Davey Boy Smith Jr., which becomes the fifth bout on the card so far.
With "Ric Flairs Last Match" billed as a Jim Crockett Promotions event, the late Jim's son, David, delivered the announcement:-

As for Flair himself, all that is known about his farewell bout is that Ricky 'The Dragon' Steamboat turned down the opportunity to compete in it. Speculation points to some form of tag contest in order to minimise the risk to the 73-year-old Flair.
