Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

This will topic will not die. :

NWA Clash of the Champions IX: New Years Knockout (I Quit match)
Ric Flair vs Terry Funk
Again, like Terry Funk's Empty Arena match in Memphis against Jerry Lawler, this is a doozie to rate. I didn't give that match a rating because it was more of a angle than a match. However, this match their is just enough wrestling evolved to bring out the snowflakes. As their is a mic used in this, the two legends use a microphone to tell a story verbally, not just by wrestling. Funk beats down on Flair's back and reminds him of the plane crash he was in, years before. This is a straight-up brawl and the crowd eats it up. It's like an Attitude-era PPV main event in an NWA world. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the bookers who were responsible for the Attitude Era took inspiration from this classic match. Even to this day, it still holds up.
