Billy Corgan talking about how Ric Flair appearing on the upcoming NWA 73th Anniversary show came about:

“I know that NWA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis had lunch not too long ago with Conrad Thompson, who of course, everybody knows Conrad’s success from podcasting. Conrad is also a member of the Flair family via marriage. I believe it was right around the time of Mr. Flair had left his relationship with WWE, so I think maybe there was some poking around during that lunch about, ‘Do you think this is something Ric might be interested in?’

I think that opened up the channel to talking behind the scenes about whether or not we could fit together. Obviously, it did happen. I’m very excited. There’s lots of things you do in wrestling where you cross your fingers and you hope for the best. It’s an awesome responsibility to run the NWA with history. It’s no mistake that I care about the history of the business, not just the NWA’s history. There are only certain moments in life where you can put those pieces together where you connect all those dots. Mr. Flair, coming back to the NWA, specifically in The Chase, specifically on the 73rd Anniversary show, I mean that is an awesome thing to be able to sign off on.”

Former NWA World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair will be in St. Louis on August 29. The NWA 73rd anniversary show will air live on FITE TV (pay-per-view).

Flair was granted his release by WWE earlier this month. He appeared at AAA Triplemania XXIX to be in the corner of his son-in-law Andrade El Idolo during the AAA Mega Championship match against Kenny Omega.
