Am I the only one that Flair was going to announce his retirement last night? Call me crazy, but I sensed an air of finality last night during his promo (which was gold by the way) right until Vince came out. Flair has brought up his history quite a bit as of late.....maybe he wants to duck out the door right before the supposed arrival of the NWO. Speaking of which, when Flair does call it a career, I hope the WWF does a serious tribute to him. I would love to see a show with just two hours of Ric Flair highlights.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it....

I doubt you will ever see a two-hour highlight show on anyone except for Vince on WWF TV. Maybe on Excess. I think it Flair retired tomorrow, he would get a 3 minute video and a 2-set DVD release.

January 4th 1999 - The day WCW injected itself with 10 gallons of Liquid Anthrax...AKA...The day Hogan "Defeated" Nash to win the WCW title in front of 40,000.

Even if he isn't running from the whole nWo shit..
Perhaps Vince (because let's face it. Vince decides what happens) feels like the best way to handle business right now is giving Flair the tribute he deserves. To many, Flair is wrestling. And even Vinnie Mac has to realize that if you have a legend like that in the ring with you, you treat him with some respect (and I don't mean storyline asskickings..I mean a bit of real respect.)
Even though Vince used the robe and wig to mock Flair a few weeks ago, just seeing a real Natureboy robe made me mark out. And that video tribute was nice, although it was waaay to WWF-ish (3 second shots with the song-of-the-month slapped behind it)

And on that DVD release..where do I sign up? *drooool*

And even though Vince DID kinda you know, squash Flair for 10 minutes before giving Flair the offense...

I was a bit annoyed that Flair sold for McMahon like he was Goldberg. Granted, McMahon is huge and all, but he shouldn't have had sustained offense for that long. Oh well, he still lost, and little to no mention was brought up about anything else having to do with the match.

I'll think of something witty later, I promise.

I totally thought Flair was going to retire last night. The whole thing about his family...well, I'm glad he didn't. The 2nd picture his daughter supposedly took was hilarious though. Did you see the look on Vince's face? That was gold.

The fact that Eddie was taken from being the hottest act on Smackdown (and arguably in the whole WWE) and is now shoehorned back into the midcard could also be called career suicide, but hey.
