God Bless the makers of Youtube. Click Here (youtube.com). If someone has a link with better quality or with the segment as a whole, please post it.

A simply incredible moment. Couldn't have been done any better. I'll NEVER get tired of anything involving the Horsemen. And that theme? Mint.

I really felt like they weren't just saying good-bye to just Ric Flair, but also that entire generation of wrestlers. A huge, huge, HUGE era has just come to an end.

It's really hard to imagine wrestling without Ric Flair. But that tribute was nothing short of awesome. Really, really awesome.

That was great. THANK YOU RIC

I noticed: Michelle McCool and Jamie Noble standing next to each other at the end. HMM.

Also, I wonder if Jericho is still mad at JJ Dillon and Dean Malenko for their conspiracy during the cruiserweight battle royal at Slamboree 1998.

I'm with the J-Man, where was Piper? Surely this was a bigger occasion than Matt Striker's birthday.

The even stephven booking of Jericho pinning Punk clean is kind of TNAriffic but I love Jericho so I won't complain even if, intellectually, it seems odd.

First time I ever got teary eyed over something to do with wrestling that didn't involve a death.

Was Undertaker on the ramp at the end of the show ? I know he likes to keep his characters mystique, but he still should have been there with everyone else.

It's really a bummer that Sting couldn't be there. But they did have their last WCW match against each other, so I guess there's that. But still..

Also, I only saw the YouTube clips, but did the McMahon's only come out after the show went off the air or something?

Looks like he and Vince came out after the show went off the air:

http://www.411mania.com/wrestling/news/72185/Flair-Retirement-Ceremony-Continues-After-RAW-Goes-Off-The-Air.htm

I would have liked to see him doing the kneeldown pose in front of Flair. I thought for a moment that they were going to have him come out and retire the Big Gold Belt with Ric.

Oh, and I also would have liked to see Piper there. I'm surprised Rhodes or Terry Funk weren't there either.

And kudos to Vince for staying off camera and letting Flair have the spotlight.

I was raised on NWA and always leaned toward it and WCW more than the WWF/E. To see Flair get this treatment in a McMahon ring -- with the knowledge that Hogan blew his shot at this kind of moment -- affirms Flair's position as the greater figure in the last 40 years.

It's petty. But it's genuine.

Long live Flair.

Hot damn, this was a fun show. Punk/Jericho, Show/Khali and Orton/Hardy had me grinning like a child.

That was just perfect. It will make a great add on to the end of my recording of WrestlMania 24.

Thanks Flair. Saying they broke the mold just doesn't say enough.

    I wouldn't want him there at all. I was expecting Roddy Piper though.






It wasn't like I was asking for #1 Paul Jones to show up. That would have qualified as the miracle of miracles. Ole did teach destroying Dusty in a cage 5 years before Arn and Ric learned with him

    Let's put this in perspective.

    Firstly, to answer your question - if they don't, they're absolutely nuts.

    Cena is only 30 years old. He's already won three world titles. He's held those three world titles for a combined 26 months, and is easily the most dominating champion and the most powerful force (however you want to define it - ticket sales, merchandise sales, star power, pure crowd heat magnet) in the industry today.

    At age 30, Ric Flair had yet to win even one of his 16 world titles.

    I daresay that politics might be the only thing that could stop Cena from *surpassing* Ric Flair's career. And that's not intended as a slight at Ric at all. While someone like Hulk Hogan was limited by his technical ability, Cena is the complete package. He can wrestle any kind of match, he can work the stick with the best of them, and not only he is a physical freak of nature, but as we've seen this year, his college education gives him the prime knowledge to not only keep himself in peak condition, but to drastically cut short a recovery that would have taken a year for any other performer.

    Let's put it this way: If Ric Flair is Jack Nicklaus (and for the sake of the legacy image, let's say that Harley Race is Arnold Palmer) then John Cena is Tiger Woods. That should clear up just how great Flair's career was, and how great Cena's career could very well be twenty years from now.

I don't understand the universal praise for last night's main event.

It was twenty minutes of run-ins and bear hugs!

Thank God for Youtube. I headed to bed before the tribute (5am comes way too soon) but it was really awesome to see the WWE pay tribute to Flair this way.

It's been said before, but its stuff like this that makes me proud to be a WWE fan.

Is there any video of the Undertaker and Vince during this? I also didn't see Orton, but then again, it's a large group, and the resolution of the video was kinda iffy.

I know that a TNA star showing up on WWE programming wouldn't work...but I'm sure some kind of agreement could have been arranged to see Sting show up. Even if they called him Steve Borden, and he came down without his stage makeup.

I can't believe I'm saying this...but thank you, Vince McMahon, for the most touching tribute for the greatest wrestler of all time.

Orton was up front of the wrestlers who came down at the end. Vince and the Undertaker didn't appear until after the show went off the air.

What I noticed last night on Raw that may have been overshadowed by Flair's farewell was another guy on the roster that is ready to be something HUGE. Big Show. Other than being physically huge, I mean, the guy is ready to take the double double E and make it his b*tch. He's thinner, he's meaner, he's CONFIDENT and he has become really effective on the mic. Heel or not, I think he's ready to do whatever he wants to do for as long as he (or his health) allows himself to do. The look he had when looking eye-to-eye with Khali and then, "You need to get out of my face...seriously." was great. Damn, I was legit SCARED for Khali.

I might be in the minority on this, but I think he's ready for a major breakthrough. And Flair's departure might just be the motivator.

He's motivated now, but if he ends up stuck in an extended black hole of suck with Khali, does the motivation wane?

He managed to be silently entertaining in his squash of Colin Delany on ECW.

Yeah, that was AWESOME. Show really told a story with his expressions. "Kid, I really don't want to do this to you, but it's my JOB to kill people in the ring." Then he kills him dead, but makes it quick.

Big Show? The best developed character in wrestling? Is it possible?

Yes it is and yes he is. I think 2008 and 2009 will be Big Show's years - IF he stays healthy. I thknk the ME is just SCREAMING for another contender and Big Show is legit. Whereas before I thought it was Jericho, it is now Big Show and Jericho will have to be happy with the upper mid card.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.
