[1990-12-22-NWA-World Championship Wrestling] Sting and Ric Flair

Recommended Posts

Highlights of Starrcade recapped by Gordon Solie. We close out with Sting and Flair cutting promos. Sting said Flair accomplished one thing -- he made him feel sick inside. But ... he didn't get the job done. Flair tries to make sense of things, saying he's really going to haunt Sting until he's a seven-time champ. This is the first appearance of Flair with his new haircut. Other than that, he's himself, and it's good to see him back in the main event scene.

Good promos from both guys in the face of long odds. Flair does a quasi-Scorpion imitation and...whatever. The angle's over, we can get back to Sting vs. Flair. I'm on board.

Clips from Starrcade match. Solie thinks Sting is battered emotionally. Now we hear the voice of Ric Flair. He’s looking to win title for 7th time. They just need to completely move past the Black Scorpion sham.

I specifically skipped ahead to this segment to see how they put a bow on the whole Scorpion mess after Starrcade.

 

First of all, Flair's imitation of a sonovoxed Ole is absolutely dreadful, even as a joke. It sounds like he's either clearing his throat or barking like a dog. I kind of like the haircut, though. The promo is standard Flair gaga, but that's a massive improvement over anything and everything the Scorpion has ever said.

 

Second, why would finding out that Flair's the Scorpion make Sting sick inside? He had to at least wonder in the back of his mind if the whole thing wasn't a Horseman mind game from beginning to end, and now he knows for sure. I could see him being angry and wanting to get Flair in the ring as himself to settle this once and for all, but sick? Maybe if it was Luger or Pillman or one of his other friends, but a known cheat and manipulator like Flair? I'm not buying it.

 

I agree that it's a good thing the Scorpion mess is finally over (even though I still have the actual Starrcade match left to watch). What a pity that it made Sting's first title reign into a complete shambles, As excited as most fans were to see new blood win the belt in July, they're probably going to be just as relieved that it's back with Flair in a few weeks.
