Many wrestling fans were hopeful that Ric Flair’s match against Shawn Michaels would be the final match to close out last night’s WrestleMania XXIV. It turns out that Flair was offered the main event spot but turned it down.
There was a pitch made by a creative team member to have the final shot of WrestleMania be a spotlight on Flair’s boots and robe. However, Flair strongly disagreed with those sentiments when the idea was brought up to him during a press conference held prior to the WWE Hall of Fame convention.
Flair told reporters that nothing is more important than the title belts and insisted that his match with Michaels did not belong in the main event position.
