Ric Flair on his retirement match with Shawn Michaels
The Nature Boy is thankful to Michaels for giving him a memorable retirement match at WrestleMania XXIV.
“He carried me in my farewell retirement match, no matter how many people want to think I was holding up my end of it, I was trying to get through it.”

I’ve looked back and actually had time the past couple of years to watch some of Shawn’s matches that he had while I was at WCW and Shawn just is a class act.”
