Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Who do you guys think had the best PRIME as an all-around performer ALL-TIME ? I think I'd have to go with Ric Flair in 1989. THREE ***** classics with Steamboat, TWO **** 1/2-**** 3/4 encounters with Funk, and fantastic tag matches at Halloween Havoc 1989 and COTC 8. His micwork was really top notch and unparalled by anyone else in the industry at this point. At Starrcade that year he had a match that Sting that I wasn't really a fan of (But I was never a fan of the Sting/Flair series so that's that), but outside of that, every single appearance that Flair made either in the ring or on the mic was worth watching.
Besides that, who do you believe is currently in their primes in the current WWE ?
Hard to tell who's in their prime in WWE today... I'd say Punk? He's put on a classic with Cena at MITB, had good matches with Mark Henry on Raw which was surprising, his matches vs. Jericho were all fun, the triple threat at Hell in the Cell last year was really good.
Rock was also on his game back in 2002 having great matches at Vengeance, SummerSlam vs. Brock, vs. Flair on Raw, Hogan at WrestleMania, his promo's were all top notch and funny. 2000 was also a great year from him during his series of matches vs. Triple H. But I'm just being biased.
