That Flair/Eaton match is a four star plus classic. A masterpiece.

And this was only a match on the WCW Sunday show that was like the C-Show next to Saturday Night and Worldwide. So it's a lost classic.

No wonder Stu Hart had a heart attack when Bruce Hart brought the British Bulldogs to Calgary looking like that a year later.

The match isn't bad, though.

Yeah it is good. I haven't watched a lot of British wrestling, it's an interesting style.

I was shocked that's Vince at the end interviewing him putting over the NWA. I guess this was 2 or 3 years before he stopped working with them.

But not shocked this aired on the east coast and Dusty wasn't saying this for Georgia and North Carolina.

Good lord, when Ric Flair would come on camera it was like God appearing to the masses, I swear, from like 1980 to 2001.

He only got heel heat once when I saw him (against Savage) every other time he got a huge pop and Woos the whole match.
