I don't exactly remember where I read it but I heard Flair/Michaels was suppose to close the show but Ric insisted Taker/Edge main event. I'm not sure if that was a rumor or not.
Glad it turned out the way it did. Many people felt Taker should have won the title in the main event a year prior so it's cool we got it after another classic at WM 24.
