Flair and Sid claim innocence over what happened to Luger, in a way where they are obviously lying. They seem to be going back to Flair/Luger as a program, which is not a horrible idea if the plan was to give Luger his win. Otherwise, the feud had run its course.

I really hate how they can't have a proper set or even a background for the Louisville Slugger. Just one of those details that makes the WWF look so much more professional.

Flair was kind of phased out a little bit after the GAB because Sid was already being positioned vs. Sting so now we get Flair circling back to Luger.

There were no witnesses to see Luger being attacked. Horsemen are not admitting to anything but hey, the same thing could happen to Sting. They remind Luger that is professional wrestling and to toughen up.

It's like I said in the thread for the Sting/Flair title change: they want to keep Flair as the major player he deserves to be and push some new blood for the World title situation at the same time, so Sting gets Sid while Flair and Luger, a proven money match, gets freshened up with Flair being the challenger for once. Not a bad idea if they'd stuck with it, but I notice that the Black Scorpion makes his first appearance at the end of the month. Nice work from Sid as well.


Set or no set, Corny pours his all into these segments. I love his closing line here: "Terrible crime problem we have in this country", delivered in that wonderfully smarmy, sarcastic voice. He's got the best talk show segment in the business right now, bar none.

I don't remember Flair going back and feuding with Luger, I thought he went straight to teaming with Arn. Interested to see the match then.

Ric Flair and Sid Vicious are Jim Cornette’s guests on the Louisville Slugger, and he says that fans have just seen the tape of what happened to Lex Luger so they can decide for themselves.  A lot of tumours have been flying around saying the Horsemen attacked him, but there’s no eye witnesses, there’s no proof and Lex Luger isn’t talking.  Everybody will therefore have to agree that the Horsemen obviously had nothing to do with this situation!  Sid tells Sting that it must just be fate, when you mess with the Horsemen, something bad is going to happen to you.  Like it happened to Lex Luger, it may happen to him!  Flair says that everyone knows that if you play with fire you get burned, so somewhere along the line Lex Luger must’ve made someone ill.  Luger is the U.S. champion, a big man in the business, and he and Sting side by side figure that they rule the wrestling world.  Wrong!  What happened to Luger could happen to Sting tomorrow, nobody’s fault, it just happens in life.  It’s the world of hard knocks, the big boys survive and the little boys fall by the wayside.  Cornette then says that it’s terrible the crime problem in this country these days!
