I have watched some of his matches of the 80's.I just don't like his style of wrestling.Can't get emotionally involved with his matches.From whatever I have seen,I preferred matches of Randy Savage over anybody else

I guess it's an unpopular opinion.
Because its a bad one :D:

I knew when I saw the words Ric Flair you would come on here and comment.

I actually prefer Flair as a face. It was impossible for me to root against Flair as a heel so I always cheered for him anyway. This way I could cheer for the guy I was supposed to cheer for. Loved his feud with Funk, the Vader match, his return to WCW from being fired, and his WWE 05-06 run when he channeled his inner Terry Funk by having crazy hardcore matches.

I personally think that Flair's matches have aged very well. Some disagree and I am able to understand why. Fans that started during the AE are just not conditioned to consisted 60 minute matches and expect a lot more high spots in matches. Flair was not a high flyer nor a power wrestler, nor did he have the technical abilities of someone like Bret, but he was the best in ring storyteller ever, IMO. As far as being emotionally involved and knew what it felt like to want to see Flair lose the belt so bad that you wanted to puke it's hard for me to describe.

Mods I just made a thread about Flair within the last week. If you agree I think the two should be merged.

I love Ric Flair in almost everything he does. Even when he is drunk he's awesome.
Absolutely. Face, Heel, Crazy Flair, Serious Flair, Hitting himself in the head Flair, elbow dropping his coat Flair.

One later career face flair moment I loved was his feud with HHH. "HHH! Do you think.... I'm afraid of you!?" *starts hitting himself.

Flair - King of Wrestling.
