The Undertaker and Ric Flair have been and will remain two pillars of WWE and the world of wrestling in general. The Deadman decided to hang up his boots last November at the Survivor Series, after over thirty years of honorable career in Stamford, and wanted to send a touching message to the Nature Boy.
It was revealed by the direct interested in the WrestlingInc microphones: "Happy Thanksgiving, champion! Thank you for carrying the business on your shoulders and for being one of the biggest. Many have tried to equal you and very few have succeeded.
Before, now and forever you will be the champion. Proud to consider you my friend. "Flair then wanted to remember the great match with the Deadman, which took place in 2002 at WrestleMania 18:" he had done everything Mark.
I was 54, but we managed to put up a great match despite my mental problems and his physical problems. I remember that after the Last Ride he was full of insecurities, then everything went well."
The Undertaker and Ric Flair are two of the greatest Superstars ever
It is not the first time that the two have exchanged messages.
Even after last year's edition of WrestleMania, which saw the Deadman protagonist of the controversial BoneYard Match, Ric Flair wrote to him fulfilling what he had created with AJ Styles. Furthermore, the Nature Boy does not seem to be 100% convinced of The Undertaker's retirement.
In past interviews, he has explained how his feeling of him is that the Deadman can return to perform once the public is once again admitted to the arenas. Mark Calaway is enjoying his well-deserved retirement, but anything can happen in the world of wrestling.
Even Flair himself, after retiring from WWE in 2008, remained stationary for a few years and then joined TNA and fought several matches. Meanwhile, Taker will take part in a major charity event organized with the Company, offering the winning fan the opportunity of a lifetime.
Flair, on the other hand, was recently the protagonist of a controversial storyline with his daughter Charlotte and Lacey Evans, which WWE seems to have shelved entirely. Ric Flair and The Undertaker usually make the cut when one lists the Mount Rushmore of pro-wrestling.
The Nature Boy is a 16-time World Champion and has been a part of the business for decades. He spent the better part of the 90s in WCW but made his way to WWE soon after the former was bought out by Vince McMahon. Flair wrestled The Undertaker at WrestleMania 18 in 2002, which ended with The Phenom picking up another big win at The Show Of Shows. Here's what he had to say about the WrestleMania 18 match against The Undertaker.
