A Flash From The Past (February 23, 2012)

This is my favorite Royal Rumble moment, the night the real World Champion was crowned. President Jack Tunney stripped the title from Hulk Hogan, because of two controversial title changes between Undertake & the Hogan, so the title was on the line during this particular Royal Rumble.  Ric Flair entered the Rumble as the third man and was in the match for over one hour. On this evening the “Nature Boy” Ric Flair out lasted 29 other men, to become the undisputed WWF Heavyweight Champion. The post-match interview proves that Ric Flair was the greatest wrestler on the mic, and that he can be a star in any Wrestling Organization. The “finish” has always bothered me, but now that I am older I realized that WWE doesn’t “push” anything that wasn’t created by them. The fact that this man was a former NWA & WCW champion means nothing to the WWE, they need to make it seem that without the almighty Hulk Hogan, Flair would have never thrown Sid Justice over the top rope. Probably this is the way poor Daniel Bryan feels right now. Bryan is regarded as one of the greatest Independent Wrestler’s in history, and he has not defeated any of the top superstars in the WWE, cleanly. Bryan keep your head up, and remember that the fans can always make you a star , look at CM Punk,  seven year ago no one believed this guy can be a Superstar, but he is on top of the WWE right now.
