Ok, so I'm finally gonna watch Flair/Steamboat Wrestlewar '89 and when I'm done I'm also going to finally give the Taker/Orton series a watch.
I just got to mention one thing. You gotta love the irony of wrestling. During the Flair/Steamboat 2/3 falls Ross mentions that only in the NWA do you get 60 minutes of wrestling, and that's not including entrances folks!
My point is, despite trying to sell themselves as pro wrestling they were as much about sports-entertainment as the WWE. I mean, Flair's entrance alone was 60 minutes and for Christ's sake, Steamboat came out on a damn horse for Wrestlewar!
