During the final day of Florida Supercon 2017 in Fort Lauderdale, two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair noted he would be returning to South Florida in August.

Flair accepted an invitation to be a guest host on “Highly Questionable,” the ESPN weekday TV show with Gonzalo “Papi” Le Batard and his son, Dan, who is a big fan of Flair and vice-versa. Since Bomani Jones left the show in June to pursue a new ESPN TV show with ESPN The Magazine and ESPN.com senior writer Pablo S. Torre, guests hosts have been joining the program.

On Sunday, July 30 at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Flair said during a Q&A at Florida Supercon that his return would occur around the time WWE is in Miami, which is Sunday. Aug. 13 at the AmericanAirlines Arena. Hey, we could very well have two Flairs in town simultaneously. That is a SmackDown brand house show (no TV) on Aug. 13, and Flair’s daughter, the very athletic Charlotte, is one of the top superstars on the SmackDown roster.

“Highly Questionable” airs 4:30 p.m. ET weekdays on ESPN from The Clevelander in Miami/South Beach.

With Flair involved, maybe they’ll end each show with the segment: “Si, No or Wooo.”

Dan Le Batard also hosts a national ESPN radio show with Stugotz which can be heard weekdays on South Florida’s AM 790 The Ticket.
