I can't remember that ever happening, either. Perhaps I'll look it up sometime.
This is not the first time that Ric Flair and Chris Jericho have crossed paths, however. When Jericho was just starting to get into his classic heel persona, Ric Flair beat him in the middle of the ring with the Figure Four. Jericho then went nuts, ripping up Penzer's suit. This is, as I said, right at the beginning of Jericho's WCW career as a heel.
I've been waiting for Flair to bring up the subject. “You call yourself a living legend? I beat you three years ago, made you tap out in the middle of the ring, didn't I?”
Then again, back in WCW when Raven was trashing Brad Armstrong and talking about the Armstrong family curse, I was waiting for Armstrong to say, “Hey, I beat you for the light heavyweight title back in '92, didn't I?”
“Bow-wow-wow, yippee-yo-yippee-yay, Oil of Olay all day, every day!”
I sent my ballot two days ago (and published it on www.1ryderfakin.com by the way) and I voted for Jericho as a wrestler of the year. He always gives a great effort, great matches, great interviews, a tremendous heel.
