I’m watching Wrestlemania. I’m a fan of wrestling from way back.
I just saw Shawn Michaels end the career of Rick Flair.
There’s an old addage in the wrestling business that says you can’t go out on top. Tonight Ric Flair went out like a man in one of the most emotional finishes I’ve ever seen in my twenty plus years as a wrestling fan.
I’m at a loss for words, and there is a part of me that knows like death in comic books, retirement in wrestling is never really a certainty. However, for now, my eyes are a bit watery. My throat has a lump in it, and I stand, alone in my living room, out of respect for the man.
