[1999-02-01-WCW-Nitro] Ric Flair and Eric Bischoff

Recommended Posts

Flair's new plan for Bischoff is to put him in an employee dunking booth. Interesting tactic since it's clearly cold outside, as you can see their breath when talking. Bischoff is rightfully concerned that he'll get pneumonia. Flair gets in a bunch of references to things Bischoff made him do through the years which are inside but not to the point that none of this makes sense. ("Remember when you sent me to do the radio show in South Dakota?") I sort of like that in this context.

 

JJ takes the first shot and Bischoff goes in the water for the first time. La Parka is hilariously there cheering JJ Dillon on. Now it's Bobby Heenan's turn. He wants to hand the balls to Bischoff so no one else can dunk him, but he slips on the wet ground and dunks him by accident. Heenan has lost his penchant for physical comedy. The Horsemen are out next. Bischoff vows that he will have the last laugh. Bischoff shivers and asks Flair where David is.

I guess Bischoff stopped dying his hair now. You're right about Heenan though. Looked like a drunk old fool and then he hits the thing and it takes a couple of seconds for Bischoff to get in the water. Parka steals this by doing his dance after JJ puts Bischoff in the water.

Well, the other issue is, Bischoff keeps finding ways to outsmart Flair in the end, which is kind of backwards. When Vince is booked to look foolish, he goes all-in, 100%. Bischoff seems to be trying to want to be a cool heel still. That said, La Parka's presence here was ROTFL-worthy and made it all worth it.
