It’s the third episode of the We Want Flair Podcast. John LaRocca and GG discuss Ric Flair vs Big Van Vader at Starrcade 1993.
On this third episode, John LaRocca and GG go through the entire timeline of when Ric Flair left WWF in early 1993 to go back to WCW, all the way until Starrcade ’93 where he puts his career on the line against Big Van Vader.
They talk about the Flair For The Gold segments and why Flair didn’t wrestle immediately. They talk about the build to the matches that didn’t draw great ratings and really, weren’t classic Ric Flair matches that we’d been accustomed to.
They talk about how Flair even got into the title match and how circumstance and bad luck worked out on WCW’s favor here because what they were doing with Ric initially was just not working.
