WWE Adds More Awesome to upcoming ‘WWE Starrcade’ Live Event

Image result for wwe starrcade

Except that as-of posting this, the event will not be airing on the WWE Network. Le sigh…

Anyway, this coming Saturday (November 25th), WWE will present ‘Starrcade,’ live from Greensboro, NC, deep in the heart of NWA/WCW/Jim Crockett territory, and, yes, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair will make an appearance at the show (because Greensboro — and North Carolina, by extension — is Ric Flair country). Not stopping there, WWE aims to help make the show as much as a throwback as it possibly can — like NOT broadcasting it live to a larger audience; yes, I AM bitter — by feature an appearance by the limousine-riding, jet-flying, kiss-stealing, wheeling-dealing, son-of-a-gun himself, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair.

Yes, the XFL will get a Physical Hall of Fame for a day in New York City…

Oh great googily-moogily, the X-F-L… Admittedly, I was a fan early on, as I was looking for an alternative to the NFL (though Arena Football was already scratching that itch). I had no issues with the NFL then (like I do now), but competition in the pro sports realm can be a positive thing. Well, we know how the XFL ended (not well), but this coming Super Bowl week in 2017, ESPN will debut it’s newest installment of their famed 30 for 30 series with the unbelievably-highly-anticipated “This Was The XFL”. Between that, ESPN’s coverage of the WWE on SportsCenter, and the 30 For 30 series working on a Ric Flair documentary, I am super amped!

So, Tugboat was ALMOST in the Main Event of WrestleMania VII in 1991…

Tugboat Hulk Hogan WrestleMania

Remember back in late-1990 and early-1991 when Sgt. Slaughter turned heel, became an Iraqi sympathizer? Pepperidge Farms remembers…wait…no, no I remember. That would later parlay into Slaughter defeating Ultimate Warrior for the WWE Championship at the 1991 Royal Rumble in January, leading for Hulk Hogan to take the title back for the good ol’ U-S-of-A at WrestleMania VII that March. But apparently, according to a former WWE producer, that wasn’t the original plan. Continue reading So, Tugboat was ALMOST in the Main Event of WrestleMania VII in 1991…

Things That Make You Go WOOOOOOOO! My Favorite Ric Flair Non-Wrestling Moments

Last week, 16-time World Heavyweight Champion and two-time WWE Hall of Famer “Nature Boy” Ric Flair celebrated his 67th birthday, but it’s clear that his fanbase extends beyond the confines of the squared circle.

WOOOOOOO!! ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair on ‘Uncle Grandpa’

FlairUG

So, the Hall-of-Famer Ric Flair was unable to introduce the world to “The Artist Formerly Known As” KENTA at the most recent NXT Takeover: Fatal-4-Way event on the awesome WWE Network (in which NXT is the better brand over RAW and SmackDown, one could argue) due to medical reasons which included a medical procedure. Sure it would have been cool to see, but health and safety first, boys and girls. But what is probably just as awesome to see (again, one could argue; but I LIKE IT) was something I didn’t know about, which was Flair popped up on Cartoon Network’s ‘Uncle Grandpa” right as the Takeover pre-show was starting.

Mr. Perfect vs. Ric Flair: Loser Leaves WWE (1993)

This is the definition of a classic match with a classic build; both leading up to the match and the match itself. Not a lot of people talk about “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig and Ric Flair’s “Loser Leaves WWE” match from early-1993. Not only was it one of the best (FREE) RAW matches of all time, it was one of the WWE’s best matches PERIOD, and should have put Hennig over as one of the top babyfaces in the company. Unfortunately, the rivalry came up on the short end of feuds against “The All-American/Lex Express” Lex Luger and “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels throughout the rest of 1993, and essentially letting this memorable RAW moment be cast aside.
