Carlito isn’t the only major WWE superstar unhappy about being left off of tonight’s WrestleMania 23 card. Ric Flair has been said to feel just as strongly about being a WrestleMania snub, despite the fact that he has not been as open about it as Carlito.
Carlito, who recently spoke out about how frustrated he was with being a babyface and being left off of WrestleMania, is even more in the doghouse with WWE management than he already was.
As for Flair, there’s a possibility that he will retire at WrestleMania 24 next year and make this next year a “retirement tour.” However, he remains frustrated that the company could not fit him into this year’s event given his popularity with the fans.
The internal feeling is that Ric Flair’s feud with Carlito was more a case of bad timing for the “Nature Boy” as the company was more worried about punishing Carlito than putting the feud on the pay-per-view of the year.
