However, the reason Flair gave had nothing to do with ‘Taker’s age or injuries, it was because of how well The Deadman is enjoying his life with his wife and daughters.

“I think he’s really done. I don’t think Mark makes decisions on the spur of the moment. He doesn’t need the money obviously. He’s been so successful. I think he is so wrapped up with Michelle and the kids and his family. He’s in a perfect scenario for what he wants to do.” [h/t: WrestlingNews]
