Over the course of the last few weeks I have been looking back at some of the past great matches that have taken place at Wrestlemania from Bret Hart vs Steve Austin to Shawn Michaels vs Undertaker to Owen Hart vs Bret Hart and many others there is a reason why Wrestlemania is called "The Showcase of the Immortals. It is not because Hulk Hogan main evented 8 straight Wrestlemania's. A lot of matches at Wrestlemania get the fans emotionally invested in the feud and thereby get the fans more excited to see the match because they are so excited for it and have a real emotional interest in who is going to win the match. One of the matches that have happened during the history of Wrestlemania that fits this description perfectly was Ric Flair vs Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 24.
Numerous people at that point thought Flair's career was over because of his Hall of Fame induction the night before, but that didn't change the amount they invested into the match emotionally. I know people who actually cried when Flair lost knowing that one of the greatest if not the greatest wrestler of all time career was over. Then they also like many people cried the next night when the WWE gave Flair the going away party he rightfully deserved for committing 30 plus years to the wrestling business. Relive both great moments with the videos below:
