Re: Jerry Lawler: Best Wrestler of the 1980s
Flair certainly has the match catalogue, I mean even if you don't include the Steamboat trilogy from 89, or the two Funk matches from 89 or the 2 Steamboat House Show matches from 89 on his resume he still has the Windham series, the Wahoo McDaniel series, the Kerry Von Erich Hawaii match, the Dibiase Mid South Match, the Terry Taylor Mid South Match, the Jake Roberts Match, the Lawler match from Memphis, the Koko Ware match, the Ron Garvin Match, the Morton GAB Steel cage Match, the Dusty Series etc etc. The list is almost endless.
That being said I just prefer the Memphis feel and environment these days, and Lawler has an incredibly diverse set of matches to his name (which again Flair would almost certainly match) that I just can't look past him as the best ever in the 80s. Funk tbh would be my next go to pick, he and Lawler just do the little things I adore more than Flair, but I have no qualms with Flair being the overwhelming pick as best in this time frame.
