WGR#3 - Ricky Steamboat vs Ric Flair

Wrestling's Greatest Rivalries #3

Ricky Steamboat vs Ric Flair

I watched this series of matches the day after Fastlane 2021, when those of us in the UK would be able to watch an American wrestling PPV at a reasonable hour, instead of Fastlane. Well I don't tend to watch WWE PPVs these days, but you get the idea, I made an excellent decision. This series of matches underlined exactly why I don't watch WWE anymore. I'm very into now watching Funk vs Flair and nowhere near interested in The Fiend vs Randy Orton.

I used this article to help me pin down the exact matches and their order.
