In honour of tonight's RAW, where Ric Flair stepped up for about the 150385th time and made an angle interesting, please list some of your all-time favourite memories (big and small) of the Nature Boy Ric Flair.

My personal favourite would have to be the 1992 Royal Rumble.

For once, I'm going to have to agree with Scott Keith when it comes to this. My favorite Flair moment, was after complete and total humiliation at the hands of Bischoff, on Nitro....Flair and the Horsemen, are BACK!!! And Flair cuts an insanely killer promo, much like tonight. Pure gold.

I second your props for the (WHOO!) Nature Boy tonight, and I wholeheartedly agree with you regarding the 1992 Royal Rumble. That was a performance for the ages, no question.

I'll add my personal favorite-- the night after Starrcade, 1998. A few months earlier, Ric Flair had made his triumphant return to WCW, re-forming The Four Horsemen (and this group, I still insist, is one of the best ever, if you forget about Mongo, which WCW eventually did.) He immediately got into a heated angle with Eric Bischoff, and it got very, very personal. (The “heart attack” angle was also an important part of this feud-- although most people don't remember that Flair's collapse was later attributed to food poisoning, perhaps deliberately by Bischoff and Curt Hennig.)

At Starrcade '98, Eric Bischoff defeated Ric Flair with a huge assist from Curt Hennig. But the following night belonged to Flair. Flair came out and said that he would put everything he owned, his career and his entire livelihood up against Bischoff's title of WCW President. If I remember correctly, he even took off some of his clothes and handcuffed himself to the top rope to hold up the show until Bischoff came out.

Anyway, when it came time for the match, Bischoff wanted no part of it. He walked right past the entrance to the ring area and opened the door to his limousine. But Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko and Steve McMichael were right there to stop him. They actually carried him all the way to the ring (I believe the ring announcer even said, “Being carried to the ring, WCW President Eric Bischoff!”, although maybe that's just what I wanted to hear) and Flair went to town on Bischoff. Absolutely dismantled him left and right. Flair tore Bischoff's nWo T-shirt apart, and ripped him up with devastating chops that turned Bischoff's chest red.

nWo-Hollywood ran out to help Bischoff, but the Horsemen held them at bay for quite some time. But The Giant walked past the melee and headed towards the ring. He headbutted Flair, and was about to chokeslam him. At this time, Arn Anderson shows up to help fend off nWo-Hollywood on the floor, and Randy Savage comes out with Gorgeous George, wearing an nWo-Hollywood T-shirt. Savage hits the ring and The Giant looks at him quizzically. Savage shows him the colors and gives him the nWo hand gesture, but then when The Giant turns to chokeslam Flair, Savage gives him a low-blow! He then clotheslined him out of the ring, giving Flair the opportunity to hit a vertical suplex on Bischoff and then the figure-four. Bischoff tapped, and the whole place went NUCKING FUTS.

Benoit, Anderson, McMichael, Malenko, Konnan, Larry Zbysko, Tony Schiavone, Booker T and Dusty Rhodes all hit the ring to celebrate with the Nature Boy. He dropped another elbow for a three-count, applied the figure-four again, and left Bischoff lying unconscious in the ring. WHOO!!!!

Damn, I can't narrow down my favorite Flair moment. I've been watching Flair work his magic since I first started watching Mid Atlantic Championship wrestling 20 years ago when I was just 7 years old. My favorite memories of Flair are the way he made everyone look like a threat to his World Championship. He made Ricky Morton and Brad Armstrong look awesome and made them look like they could win the World Title everytime they got in the ring with him.

My favorite Flair moment was a recent one. I totally marked out when he made his redebut in the WWF last year. He came back and delivered a classic Flair promo and started what should have been a really kick-ass angle.

When I look at what happened since Flair's debut, I shake my head at how the poor guy's been wasted. Now he's reduced to giving verbal blowjobs to Triple H.

But hey, his new role with Batista has potential.

My favorite Flair moment has to be the Rumble this year. Being their live for his match with Vince made it that much cooler, and the place EXPLODED for him. Everyone in the arena was Whoooing or making the 4-Horseman sign. It was really cool too, I could hear people around me talking about seeing Flair in the old Omni years ago. That is my favorite Flair moment, also the match was classic Flair, as he bled and carried VINCE to a great match. Also his return to the WWF was great, as was the Rumble 92. As for me, almost any Flair moment is great.
