Ric Flair was present on this week’s episode of WWE Raw to declare the final member on behalf of his team. As confirmed by the WWE, he will be mentoring a five-member squad to take on five members from Team Hulk Hogan in a huge tag team match at Crown Jewel PPV.
Whereas Hogan has earlier confirmed all the five members on behalf of his team, Flair chose the fifth and final member for his team in the form of Drew McIntyre.
The former WWE Raw tag team champion was out of action due to a minor injury following Summerslam. As reported earlier, he has undergone minor surgery to get over with it.
Doctors gave him clean chit as he was waiting to get a green signal from the creative team. Drew McIntyre finally received it on last night’s WWE Raw episode took place in Cleveland, Ohio and made the most impact out of it.

He picked up an easy win delivering the Claymore Kick. Afterward, a vicious beatdown followed on Ricochet that Ric Flair enjoyed as this appeared to be a preview of what’s coming at Crown Jewel.
