Flair Friday: Fayetteville

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!

Flair Friday: Horsemen join Team Piper

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!

Flair Friday: Meet Lex Luger

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.
