    I understand it wasnt the greatest match in the world, but I think it held enough historical significance to be included on the DVD.


I'm guessing since he lost it?

I know there are a few other losses on the DVD, but they were higher profile matches.

I think they may include Sting-Flair on the last night of Nitro for "The Rise and Fall of WCW" DVD, but that's a mere guess.

    Did Flair ever win any of his big TV matches with Hogan?






Yes...

Speaking of the Flair vs. Perfect RAW match, I just ordered Invasion of the Bodyslammers off eBay with that match on it...

I'll hit on a few points:

On Hogan/Flair: How has everyone forgotten the Nitro match in January of '96 that Flair won cleanly against Hogan, which was followed two weeks later with Arn Anderson cleanly pinning Hogan on Nitro.

On the Flair DVD:
The Sting section is by far the weakest of the 7 individual sections. As for why the 45 minute Clash draw isn't on the DVD, they do show the last 2 plus minutes in the section Flair talks about Sting, and since it went head to head against Mania that day, there might be a few shots Vince doesn't want aired. Plus, it also was only the third best match that day: Windham/Luger vs. Blanchard/Anderson and Fantastics vs. Midnights were both better matches.

Flair/Rhodes from Great American Bash '86 is in the Steel Cage DVD.

As for items that could/should be on a 2nd Flair DVD:

Flair vs. Martel NWA Title vs. AWA Title.
Flair vs. Magnum TA: probably the match from Comiskey Park in the Pro Wrestling USA days, with some of the stuff from earlier in the year involving Magnum destroying a new suit etc.
Wargames.
Flair vs. Bruiser Brody in St. Louis.
Flair vs. Kerry Von Erich X-Mas '82.
Flair vs. Steamboat during Mid Atlantic days.
Horsemen/Rock 'n Roll Express feud.
The good old Pro Wrestling Illustrated Scouting Reports segments from the Sunday Night TBS show in '85-'86.
Flair vs. Vader.




If only Paul Jones had brought in General Skandar Akbar as a technical military advisor, Paul Jones' Army could have thwarted the McMahon infidels and prevented the collapse of wrestling civilization.

The one thing I hated to see missing from the Flair DVD was his return to Nitro in Sept. 99 (was it `99? The FIRE ME I'M ALREADY FIRED! ABUSE OF POWER! one). Still the hottest crowd I've ever seen on TV.

It isn't the same match. It is still a good one, but the one on that tape is from a Challenge taping. Wrestlefest 1993 is the one with the Loser Leaves Town match. But at least you can watch Reverend Slick teach Kamala how to bowl.

And for something I would have liked to have seen, the Queensbury Cup Series with Regal in 1994.

I would have liked to see anything from the 90's, other than the Rumble, because it's already there.

Yeah I found out about that AFTER I bought it, I was pissed, however, I'm buying a Best of RAW collection with that match on it (Loser Leaves Town) and the HBK vs. Jannetty match so it makes up for it...

I agree the Flair DVD set is fantastic. I was amazed at what's in the package, but also want more.

Here's what struck me:

-More Piper was needed. When I first started watching wrestling in '81, Flair vs. Piper was the hottest ticket out there. The matches were entertaining, the promos were fantastic. Flair vs. Piper is one of wrestling's great rivalries.
-Nikita Koloff should be in there. Great American Bash '85.
-The '88 feud with Lex Luger should have been shown.
-The wrong Sting match was there. They should have shown all of the Clash I meeting, or the build-up to making Sting champ in '90. The momentum of that angle was ruined by Sting's knee injury, but it was still spectacular.
-Flair vs. Vader at Starrcade '94. Vader made him pay a price for rising back to the top.
-And as much as it made me cringe, it would have been great to hear Flair talk about how he was misused by WCW in the late '90s... especially the angle that showed him in the mental institution.
