Shawn Michaels discussed at length how emotional it will be to face Ric Flair at WrestleMania 24 in an interview with the Charleston Post and Courier. “I’m sometimes shocked and awed by the things that I’ve been a part of, but all of a sudden this comes, and it’s like ‘Holy Cow,’ Michaels said. “It’s been an emotional roller coaster for the last couple of months.
“I’ve only spoken to a few people, but I’ve really had to put it all away in a box until it’s over. I have no doubt that when it is over, there’s going to be a wall that breaks down in me. It doesn’t matter if the world sees it, but I’m just going to blubber like a baby because it’s going to be hard to adjust from that point on.
“It’s been a weird sort of couple of weeks, because when I see Ric, I just have to detach myself and stay focused on the job. But when I’m allowed to drift off by myself and think about how much this means to me, it really is such an honor. Nothing could thrill me more than for him to say, ‘It was the greatest moment I ever had.’ He’s had so many. Can I bring him the best one?” To read more of Michaels’s comments on the match, visit charleston.net.
