Ric Flair Fridays: Flair and Sting Lock Horns at the Clash!

Whether you like it, or you don't, learn to love it! Because it's the best thing going every Friday at the Coop. All the ability! All the looks! Sixteen times the World Champion! It's Ric Flair Fridays! WHOOOOOO!

This week, we return to the NWA to showcase another of Naitch's legendary matches. On March 27, 1988, TBS aired the very first Clash of the Champions. The Clash was conceived as an event that offered wrestling fans a PPV quality experience on live television. And in this particular case, it would serve as a means for Crockett to wrestle viewers away from Wrestlemania IV, the premier PPV extravaganza of the former World Wrestling Federation.

The Greensboro Coliseum would once again bear witness to the NWA's finest. Lex Luger and Barry Windham would become NWA Tag Champs over Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard. Mike Rotunda and Jim Garvin exchanged blows in a "College Rules" match. And the main event would once again place Ric Flair in the spotlight, as he defended his NWA World Title against the man called Sting.

And now, I present to you the match in it's entirety, courtesy of YouTube user JimmyHartDoesNotAge. Witness the contest that shows Ric Flair at his finest, and the match that would make Sting a household name to pro wrestling fans the world over!
