Rating: ***** (I don't think they could have done the match better. One or two small missteps do not matter here; this is possibly the most emotional match I have ever seen and a fitting send off for Flair. The era of Ric Flair is over, and for the first time in my life as a wrestling fan I have to accept the reality that he won't be wrestling anymore. Thanks for everything Ric.)

-Flair makes it to his knees and we see his family crying. Flair gets a standing ovation as he leaves. He goes to hug his family. He then stops at the top of the ramp, crying and waves to the crowd.

-Todd Grisham is with Edge. Edge says they just saw a career end, and more history will be made later tonight. Edge remembers being at WM 6, he saw Hogan there, and he was his biggest fan. But Hogan lost, and so was his innocence. People think Taker will win at WM and they count on that. But it changes tonight, they will get slapped with reality. There is probably a kid like him in the crowd tonight, and he will kill his dream. Edge will leave the true Phenom and the world champion.

-Snoop does the announcing duties. He asks for and gets "WOOOOOOO's" for Flair. The chicks dance for Snoop.
