…this series almost rivals “Gargoyles” for my love. Almost.
On this day: The first Starrcade is headlined by a Steel Cage match between Ric Flair and Harley Race, ending with Flair hitting a wild dive off the top rope after a brutal 25 minutes to win his second NWA World Heavyweight Championship. (11/24/83)
I always wondered why Flair would climb the turnbuckle, and just what he would do if he didn’t get thrown off.
