BONUS: 6 hidden Easter eggs
vs. Harley Race Starcade '83. ***1/2. This match is an excellent cage match that sees Flair regain the title. It drags on at times, and casual wrstling fans may grow restless. The DVD provides the promos leading up to the match, where Race puts a $25,000 bounty on Flair.
vs. Dusty Rhodes Starcade '85 ****. Probably the best match that these two have had. Once again, they do a great job of providing the story leading up to the match, when the Horsemen break Dusty's ankle.
vs. Barry Windham Worldwide Wrestling 1/20/87 ****1/2. This is an execllent 45 minute match feauting Flair facing Windhan in his prime. There are many twists and turns that get you in to the match. The commercial breaks (it was on TBS) and the confusing finish are the only thing that keep this from being a five star match.
vs. Ricky Steamboat Clash of the Champions VI *****. This was a two out of three falls match that is a technical masterpiece. Once again, it features the event leading up to the match, such as when Steamboat returns to the NWA in a tag match. This match leads up to the next match...
vs. Ricky Steamboat Wrestlewar '89 ****1/2. Again a great match. They call this match "The Greatest Match". While I prefer the previous match, this match is no dud. Flair wins back the title, and a post-match incident with Terry Funk leads up to...
vs. Terry Funk Clash of the Champions IX ****. After five technical matches, it is nice to see an all out brawl. This is an I Quit match and they inflict pain on each other.
Royal Rumble 1992 ****1/2. Flair puts on the performance of a lifetime in his only Rumble.Read more ›
The buildup for his classic matches with Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes, Ricky Steamboat, Terry Funk, Sting, Barry Windham, and the '92 Royal Rumble are all included.
Besides the great matches, they do a sitdown interview with Flair and they discuss his career throughout each disc including his departure from WCW in 1991.
I've been a Flair fan for 15 years and there's a lot of stuff on here that I've never seen before such as many of the lead-in items with the Race match.
Also, there are somewhere between 5-7 easter eggs featuring some of Flair's best promos. Plus, check out the two features on disc 2 involving the Four Horsemen. Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson talk about the history and the lifestyle of the Four Horsemen.
Overall, it's a great DVD that trumps anything the WWE has done before. It makes Hogan's 2-disc DVD set look like child's play.
Now on with this superb DVD.
My personal favorite is the Harley Race segment. I think fans of the Attitude and Sports Entertainment era need to pay extra attention here, as it clips show how well both Flair and Race sold this feud, and how well the build up to their classic match at Starcade 83 was done. And for those who asks, who's Harley Race and what's the big fuss, this should answer all those questions.
The Dusty Rhodes section brought back a lot of memories, because it was around that time I began watching the NWA. I really miss watching Dusty, he wasn't much to look at, but he was very mobile for a guy his size and so charasmatic, you forgot he was say, a big fat guy. Flair-Rhodes feud in the mid 80's made me the wrestling junking I am today.
The Barry Windham section was a shocker, but I am more than happy they added it on. Totally agree with Flair when he stated Windham never got his due.Read more ›
