I need to get something off my chest.

I hate this match.

This was the TV main event of the first episode of NWA worldwide that i saw, and i didnt watch another episode, based on the match.

I was a young kid, enraptured with the WWF, and saw this other stuff on at 1am, so had it taped, once, and not again for a year.

I was used to production values of WWF, and couldnt believe how cheap, and "local" this show looked. We had a local saturday afternoon league (all star wrestling out of BC) that had far better production values, than this "national" promotion.

I had REALLY hoped this was not the "5 star" match that was raved about, and placed on the DVD, and i was of course, disappointed.

Now, i will say, it is a much much better match than i remember, but the ONE thing, that made me laugh at, and ignore NWA, was there, in plain sight.

The ending of this match is completely horrendous, and with it, there is no way in hell this is a 5, 4 or even a 3 star match.

It is a match, put on by 1 good performer, and the greatest performer of the modern era, ruined by a bush league orginization, and marred by the incompetance of either the referee or the ring crew.

I still cant help butcringe and laugh when i watch this "gem" of a match.

BTW, im flairs biggest mark, i just needed to vent.

NWA/WCW early 90's style wasn't for everyone. Maybe some people glorified it over the years, but maybe you just aren't a fan of their style. NWA/WCW could actually be pretty different than WWE back then.

Is it really just the ending that turns you off? I haven't watched much NWA myself, but having also just watched this on the Flair DVD I think the match was absolutely fantastic, and has made me a Windham fan. The ending was a bit annoying, but it almost didn't register after the enjoyment I got out of watching the match. Is there anything else you don't like about it to warrant the removal of 3 stars?

Dont get me wrong its a classic up to that point, but the ending is absolutely disgusting, with no effort to cover up the flub.

Windham even says afterwards next time he will beat flair.

He JUST PINNED FLAIR FoR THREE, the ref refused to count it, and he was optimistic about next time.

No angle, no acussation at the ref, happy.

As good as the match was up to that point, it lost all credibility right there. (for me)

Imagine if you will, Macho vs Steamboat at WM3, Classic 5 star match, up to the finish, where macho KICKS OUT, the ref counts 3 anyhow, and awards steamboat the match.

Is that still a 5 star?

And mike, i am a huge fan of 80's WCW, after i tuned in again.

I think a motivated Shawn Michaels is still the best in the business. But a Shawn Michaels who doesn't care is NOT a pretty sight.
