Ok … I think Gia and Flair both hate Fayetteville, NC. Got it …
This is a classic TV style promo, prior to the boys coming to a city near you! I bet Ric Flair cut 50 of these promos in one sitting, I wonder if somewhere they have a blooper reel of him getting the city wrong? Wait … Flair would never do that!
As you have seen over and over on Flair Friday, with Ric Flair, your friends one day, enemy’s the next! It was Pipers turn to feel the wrath of the Horsemen!
The Horsemen in the same ring with Rocky King? WTF! He is a jobber!
Of course he was there to introduce his boy JYD to the Horsemen!Loved JYD in WWF as a kid … this was like a dream match when I was a youngster!
This is a rare video from Prime Time Wrestling on USA, Ric Flair interviewed after winning the WWF Championship.
First thing I notice here is that Nitro was at Club LaVela in Panama City Beach, live it!
2nd – WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT TEAM PIPER PUT TOGETHER?
Thanks GOD Flair and the Horsemen came out and saved Piper! Ha! I remember this and Piper was pretty awful in WCW, but this group of guys he put together was a nightmare!
Ric Flair was on top of the wrestling world and he had no issues rubbing that in everyones face! Reminding fans and other competitors nightly that to be the man, you have got to beat the man!
I did learn to love it! Woooooo!
Ric Flair seemed to always have a rotating spot in the Horsemen; Lex Luger, Sting, Barry Windham … I could go on for days ..
The common theme was that he would build them up and then battle them. Brilliant for booking pro wrestling during this time period, the fans really were passionate about these guys and they took advantage of the emotions.
