Loss Posted February 6, 2017 Report Share Posted February 6, 2017 Flair gets a shockingly lukewarm reaction coming out, but wakes the people up when he starts talking. Luger is a better talker when he has to share interview time with Flair, but Flair is a total incoherent cartoon character here. Luger is obsessed with mentioning his body fat percentage. Hennig cuts them off when they start running down Minnesota. This is such a weird back and forth. I think Flair is on drugs. Hennig promises to streak in Minneapolis if he can't beat Ric tonight, and he's so much better as a hometown babyface than he is in any other role at this point. I hate this trend in both companies of double the time being given for hyping the match as for the match itself, as this gets less than four minutes, but it's set up with a 7-minute interview segment. This is a slower version of Flair-Hennig from even three years earlier but they make up for it with lots of hard chops and that plus it being in Minnesota works. Luger interferes after Hennig hits the ref for weird reasons that make no sense. The referee comes revives after Luger bails, but then Hennig tries to hit Flair with a chair, only to get pinned after an old-fashioned kick to the balls. Bad setup, a match that is a decline from years earlier even if I still sort of liked things about it and a mess of a finish. Don't rush to see this.
