Following hot on the heels of Ric Flair wrestling his purported "last" match only a matter of weeks ago, could the Honky Tonk Man be getting set for one final in-ring outing?
Taking to Twitter, the legendary Intercontinental Champion - whose solitary reign with that prize is still a record at 454 days - suggested that he's getting ready to have one more match.

For those wondering, the last time HTM was in action was in November 2019, where he competed in a battle royal for WildKat Pro Wrestling out of Louisiana. Interestingly, Honky Tonk's previous match to that saw him team with old partner Greg Valentine and nowadays AEW star Colt Cabana to get a win over David Arquette, RJ City and the System at HOW FortuneBaynia II in July '19.
Up until 2019, the real-life Wayne Ferris had remained active in-ring across every single year since he was last seen on a mainstream platform with his ill-fated WCW run in 1994. Of course, prior to that run in Ted Turner's wrasslin' promotion, the Honky Tonk Man made himself a true superstar during his time with the then-WWF between 1986 and 1991. The WWE Hall of Famer would return to WWF/WWE for several short stints across the subsequent years, notably serving as the manager of Billy Gunn in 1997, appearing in the 1998 and 2001 Royal Rumble matches, and interacting with Santina Marella in 2008.
Whether the Honky Tonk Man does indeed lace up his boots for one more round in the squared circle remains to be seen, but this could well be one to keep your eye on.
