This isn't even much of a debate, honestly.
In my opinion, he hung on way too long at WWF/E. His last matches were hard to watch. Even the match against Shawn at Wrestlemania wasn't a good match. He's 62 years old and way, way, way, way, way past his prime. He can't physically do a lot of the moves anymore.
And not only can he physically not do it, but he lost a lot of respect from fans. He went on Raw, had a big long goodbye segment, got everyone teary-eyed, then went and signed with TNA and basically negated everything he just did on Raw.
Physically? He's done
Fan support? He has limited
He's done. Get him in a retirement home.

No, NO, NO..
Flair isn't hurting anything by just killing the mic..
He doesn't wrestle..
If he does it's once in a blue moon..
Flair is the easy pick here..
I'll go with the Undertaker..
His matches are nothing like they use to be.. He's still a MAIN DRAW for WWE.. With WWE trying to move to the young cats.. Undertake is sticking out like sore thumb..
I'm not hating on the Undertaker.. He's one of the best eva..
He's in ring stuff sucks now..
Also, losing the tombstone to do some Dana White mma move is lame as well.

Taker definitely doesn't need to retire, he just needs to be used more. I think he still has stuff left in the tank. I mean look at his match with Triple H. He wasn't just flopping around and hardly moving like Flair does. He was diving over the ropes, taking big bumps, and had moves left in him.
I don't understand why WWE does what they do with him, but he's got the skills still. He still does the tombstone, still has the Last Ride, the chokeslam, and now Hell's Gates.
Flair? He's 62 f'n years old. You know what most 62 year olds are doing right now? Sitting in lawn chairs in Florida sipping coffee while reading the newspaper. You know why? BECAUE THEY KNOW THEY'RE OLD. I think Flair still thinks he's 25 years old and in his prime. Half the fans today didn't even watch him wrestle in his prime.
It's time Flair. Go to Florida. Be the creepy old man watching teenage girls during Spring Break.

lmao.. are you serious? Rude, your undertaker pillow isn't in your mom's attic yet? lol
Taker's the man.. no question.. I personally would miss the dark reaper.. but his matches..??
Wrestle Mania is Wrestle mania, but every other fight is a snooze fight 2010..
Undertaker .. who left is there?
I mean.. reallY?
I would have enjoyed to see STing vs TAker at mania.. of course the dream fight didn't happen..
Taker vs Triple H was good, but look at the stage , and who he was fighting..
Taker is 46 and looks 56
It seems like a damn century ago the Mick Foley classic went down..
What left does Taker have to prove?
He gets injured ALL THE TIME..
He fights bi 3 monthly..
Taker gooo. gooo rest IN PEACE..
Ric Flair is pretty funny on the mic Rude. Have you heard him lately.. He's cussing like a sailor and everything on TNA..
let Flair stay as long as he wants.. He's a MANAGER.. It's good to hear the legend's voice..
I still can't get over Edge retiring this past week.. Now Christian is filling the void against Del Rio.. sorry... hahaha

To be honest, I haven't watched TNA on a regular basis. I watched it the other night and it just seems like the NBA's D-League for WWE. All the people who couldn't make it on WWE are wrestling there.
That being said, I don't know why Flair is sticking around. He's got fans upset with him. I lost a lot of respect for him. He gave an emotional good-bye on Raw, then went out and signed with TNA. I don't care what he's doing there, he's 62. He needs to be done.
And I'm not convinced 'Taker is done. He didn't look to be ailing or struggling during Wrestlemania. I mean, if he's as bad as you claim he is physically, he wouldn't be able to dive at Triple H or do everything he was doing. He had one shoulder injury (torn rotator cuff) and was out. Bad timing? Yes. But he isn't done.
He still has "it". Flair is just an old man who can't quit. There's a big difference.
