Bravo, Ric Flair. In a "Win or Retire" Match at WrestleMania XXIV earlier this evening, the legendary grappler ended his career when he fell victim to some Sweet Chin Music from "The Heartbreak Kid," Shawn Michaels. After entertaining fans with his charismatic interview style and undying work ethic for over 35 years, the "Nature Boy" finally takes his leave of the squared circle once and for all.
However, if other professional wrestler retirements are any indication, he'll show up in a few months as WWE commissioner or a special referee before delivering those devastating knife edge chops once again in his comeback bout These guys never stay away from the business for too long. Just ask Mick Foley or Hulk Hogan.
