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.
