Hello, Gematrinators!

Ric Flair’s Final Match on Same Day as Bill Russell’s Death

Earlier, I made this post on the death of NBA superstar Bill Russell, who has won more NBA Championships than any other player in history:NBA legend Bill Russell dead at 88

On July 31st, the same date he died, the man who holds the record for most world championships, Ric Flair, wrestled his final match in a special event appropriately titled Ric Flair’s Last Match:

The last name Russell has its roose in the Norse language, where it means red-haired:Russell is a given name that originated from the surname Russell, which in turn derives from the French name russel (Old Norse rossel) "red-haired, from rus (Old Norse ros) "red hair color" and the suffix -el.[1] Russell may be shortened to Russ or Rush.

Ric Flair is notorious for cutting his forehead, or blading, to produce copious amounts of blood, which would result in his hair turning red:

Flair’s real name is Ric Fliehr. Bill Russell was 88 years of age.

Ric Fliehr = 88 Ordinal


Ric Flair’s Last Match is being held at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium, due to its proximity to Nissan Stadium, where the previous night’s WWE Summerslam event took place.

Bill Russell was a long-time teammate of K.C. Jones, who also spent his entire career with the Celtics. Jones died on Christmas Day in 2020, which was the same date as a bombing in downtown Nashville, right across the river from Nissan Stadium.

Nissan Stadium = 46 Reduction

Flair sums to 46.

Flair = 46 Ordinal

Bill Russell died a span of 46 days after the Warriors defeated the Celtics in the Finals:

The Celtics were founded in the year ’46.

Celtics = 46 Reverse

Bill Russell went to college at San Francisco and played his whole NBA with the Boston Celtics. The Warriors, who play in San Francisco, just defeated the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals last month.

Nature Boy and San Francisco both = 122 and 50

That series capped of the 76th season in NBA history, and was also the Celtics’ 76th season in their franchise history. This upcoming season will be the 76th in the Warriors’ franchise history.

Ric Flair = 76 Ordinal

San Francisco = 76 Reverse


July 31st fell 156 days after Ric Flair’s birthday:

This is the gematria Bill Russell shares with the team he spent his entire career with the Boston Celtics, and their current coach Ime Udoka.

Bill Russell and Boston Celtics both = 156

Ime Udoka = 156 Capitals Mixed

The two men were born exactly 15 lunar years, 6 months apart.
(A lunar year is 12 lunar phases)

Russell and Flair were born exactly 186 Lunar phases apart:

Curiously, this is the number that sits between some of their Ordinal gematria.

In Ordinal, Richard Morgan Fliehr = 187 and William Russell = 185


Flair’s nickname is The Nature Boy.

The Nature Boy = 170 Reverse

This was a number connected to Bill Russell.

His death fell a span of 170 days after his birthday:

Nature Boy = 121, The Nature Boy Ric Flair = 121 and 104, William Felton Russell = 104 and 121
