Man... I really wish a time machine could import the Ric Flair of '89 or '88 into today's WWE. Wooooooo!
It's probably more due to my age (mid-30s) than anything else, but I don't think I'll ever have an emotional connection to a wrestler the way I did with the Nature Boy.
And y'know, when you don't really feel passionate about the wrestlers, it's kinda tough to be a fan. For the past few years, I've actually enjoyed reading about wrestling -- on forums like this -- more than watching it.
I think Nelson Royal still has the coffee pot over the fire awaiting the opportunity to expound upon the history of the Bunkhouse Stampede for the next time its brought up. Unfortunately, he's been sitting by the fire for over 16 years.
