Big news for wrestling fans all around the Midwest as the two greatest wrestlers of ALL-TIME will be in the same place at the same time on March 12th in Eldon Missouri.
Former World Champion Ric Flair comes to Harley Race’s World League Wrestling in a night that you will not want to forget.
The history of these two men in the Midwest includes the 1983 PWI Match of the Year in St Louis Missouri on June 10 when Harley Race defeated Ric Flair for the NWA World Title.
These two men had one of the true classic feuds in pro wrestling history, , which led to the first-ever NWA Starrcade event. Determined not to lose the title again, Race offered a $25,000 bounty to anyone who could eliminate Flair from the NWA. Bob Orton, Jr. and Dick Slater attacked Flair, inflicting what appeared to be a career-ending neck injury, and collecting the bounty from Race after Flair announced his retirement. Flair’s retirement was a ruse, however, and he eventually returned to action, much to Race’s surprise. NWA officials set up a championship rematch, to be titled “NWA Starrcade: A Flare for the Gold”.
The match was to be held in Flair’s backyard, Greensboro, North Carolina, which enraged Race. Race lost the title to Flair in the bloody and memorable Starrcade cage match (with Gene Kiniski as the special referee) in November, 1983. Race’s loss to Flair at Starrcade was largely seen as the torch-passing from Race to Flair. Flair would go on to an unparalleled 22 reigns as World Heavyweight Champion (10 of those reigns as NWA World champion) and largely credits Race for igniting his career.
