According to a report by PWInsider, the “Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels was asked by WWE Magazine if he was disappointed that Ric Flair returned to wrestling in the ring after their huge retirement sendoff match at WrestleMania. According to the report HBK had the following response:
“So many people ask me about Ric, and whether his return bothers me. I always say, ‘Absolutely not.’ One match at Wrestlemania XXIV that moment was truly 100 percent real to me. And it was real to him. And that’s never going to change. I want Ric to be happy. And to be perfectly honest, I know he’s happiest when he’s in the ring. That moment will always be very special to me.”
There has been speculation by many that HBK would be upset with Flair’s decision, but Flair has stated in the past that HBK was fine with it, these latest comments by Michaels confirms that statement.
