Shawn Michaels was recently asked in a new issue of WWE Magazine if he was ever upset over Ric Flair deciding to come out of retirement for the Hulkamania tour and later for TNA Wrestling.
“So many people ask me about Ric, and whether his return bothers me. I always say, ‘Absolutely not.’ One match at Wrestlemania XXIV – that moment – was truly 100 percent real to me. And it was real to him. And that’s never going to change. I want Ric to be happy. And to be perfectly honest, I know he’s happiest when he’s in the ring. That moment will always be very special to me.”
