[video] Ric Flair's Farewell Address

On Raw last night, Ric Flair gave his farewell address. He will not be stepping into the ring anymore. Ever. I mean, you might not realize this, but that's the end of an era. Aside from Hip-Hop, Professional Wrestling has been something I've followed since I was a shorty. I believe I started watching NWA shows in '86 or '87, and Flair and the Four Horsemen were the truth. Classy, aggressive, talented and just the fucking dons of any spot they frequented. Here is his address, followed by the plethora of greats and current wrestlers who came down to show support (spotted over at Rosenberg Radio):

We love you, Nature Boy. You will be missed. And you've brought a lot of fun and class to the sport.
