Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Yeah I mean he has the 5 Steamboat matches as well as the 2 Funk matches and likely a lot more that I'm struggling to recall off the top of my head.

His 85 run has the Kerry Von Erich 10/12/85 match from Hawaii, the Dibiase match in Mid South from 6/11 which is a terrifc angle as much as it is a match, the 2 Wahoo McDaniel matches, the Mid South Terry Taylor title match, Butch Reed in Mid South 8/10 and the often overlooked Koko Ware match from Memphis and the Jake Roberts 24/11 Mid South match. Add in numerous other matches on the Mid South set and other territories he toured as Champ and a spell in Japan.

If the Windham BOTB II and Worldwide 1/20/87 matches took place in 85 I'd call it his best year without a shadow of a doubt. The Steamboat matches understandably makes his 89 year look almost untouchable but I think he had a lot more depth in 1985 and had the Von Erich Hawaii match as well as 2/3 falls McDaniel match as MOTDCs.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

yeah at the end of the day it all comes down to the depth of 85' vs the quality of the Steamboat and Funk feud+matches (there's also a good Rick Steiner and Bobby Eaton match IIRC).

I also kinda consider the awesome Luger match at Starrcade 88' part of his 89' run...I mean it was December 26th

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

Everyone knows the best wrestler from '85 wasn't Flair but rather...

Bow before thy greatness.


Flair is overrated apparently, matches were too repetitive.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I'd take Flar's 85 over his 89. He had Terry Funk and Ricky Stemaboat to work with 89, and even though I;d say he was better than the both of them in their matches (debatable), those two can pull a great match out of any idiot. Flair in 85 worked everywhere and wrestled lesser opponents like Terry Taylor, Kerry Von Erich, Brody, Dusty, Wahoo etc. He obviously had his great stuff with Reed/Koko/Snake/DiBiase/forgetting a thousand people, but those and the lesser opponent macthes weren't just "Great" they were flat out "Fantastic". He had a match with Terry Taylor in Mid-South that at that point was Taylor's career match (from what I've seen, anyway- which would only be topped by another Flair match...in 85), and wrestled Kerry the SAME FUCKING NIGHT i one Kerry's best. I mean there's 3 or 4 (some could argue 6 or 7) matches from 89 that were better than any 85 match he had, but that point still remains, and there's so much 85 Flair that's likely ben lost in time forever.

Flair's the fucking man.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Flair vs Murdoch broadway not making tape/being lost forever (forget which one it was) legitimately made me want to punch something.

Could have been the greatest match ever when you factor in how both men could build and pace a match, how both were terrific entertainers and characters in the ring as well as both men being offence and selling gems.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

If I said I think Ric Flair is criminally overrated by you lot, would I get mauled to shit?

Oh well, I do think he is. I can just never get into his matches. Someone throw me in direction of a few matches that will help me change my mind or just try and explain his popularity with you guys.
