How good was Tully Blanchard ???
As i just posted in another thread i believe the Magnum T.A/Tully Blanchard feud and series of matches to be criminally underrated but as far as underrated wrestlers and characters go Tully Blanchard has to be up there near the very top. I'm a firm believer that if Ric Flair hadn't been as truly great as he was in between 1983 and 1989 when Tully Blanchard was in NWA then Tully Blanchard would have been a multiple time World champion because he was a great mic worker, a great in ring worker and had a great look and was basically everything that NWA was about back then.
A lot of people look at Tully Blanchard as strictly a tag team wrestler due to him and Arn Anderson being such a legendary team as part of The Four Horsemen and then in WWE as The Brainbusters but he was also a great singles wrestler before that who held the US title and TV title along the way when they were prestigious titles. Some of the feuds he had along the way before his tag team run were with Dusty Rhodes, Magnum T.A and Ricky Steamboat which were very good for their time but as a tag team wrestler he feuded with The Road Warriors, The Rock And Roll Express, The Midnight Express, Demolition, The Hart Foundation, The Rockers and the thrown together team of Lex Luger and Barry Windham which led to Barry Windham joining The Four Horsemen later on.
