The "Nature boy" Rick Flair is doing something that nobody thought he could do. Flair was given the greatest send off in pro wrestling history and he has managed to ruin it. WWE did a perfect job of pushing Flair as one of the greatest wrestlers to ever live by letting him retire at WrestleMania and then thanking him the next night on Raw. It is hard to think of any wrestler ever leaving the buisness in such a high note. It is sad that his legacy is now being destroyed in TNA.
Flair has shown that he is willing to do anything for money. He broke his promise to never wrestle again by appearing on the pointless Hulk Hogan tour in Australia. Just when everybody thought that Flair had done enough to ruin the perfect retirement he has agreed to wrestle on TNA Impact on March 8th. I can only imagine most of the WWE locker room wondering how he could have thrown such a perfect send off away.
I understand that Flair has made his own legacy and is entitled to do whatever he wants in wrestling. The problem is that Flair could have gone out at Mania in a legendary match. At this point it is evident that Flair will more than likely wrestle his last match in TNA. One cannot argue that retiring at Mania is much better than leaving the buisness in a promotion that cant get a consistent 2.0 in ratings.
