If I understood commentary right, this seems to be Flair's MSG debut. Feel free to fact check that for me. Really basic old school match that works quite well, if you ask me. Early babyface shine for Piper until Flair is able to cheat his way back on top. Loved the desperation Flair showed here, taking the tiniest openings to get the advantage back. Piper made for a great FIP and actually looked really good fighting from underneath. Loved the spot where Piper wouldn't let himself be tossed out. Heel shenanigans take over but I didn't really mind, they didn't detract too much from what the match was. Then, we get a historic Piper job! Holy shit, I marked out!

 

***3/4

No worries, ha - I don't even know how to do that.  I just thought I'd let you know in case you wanted read the other comments :)

 

I watched it today it thought it was a total blast.  I had seen it long ago, but I've been watching the build with all the promos leading up to it.  I've really enjoyed all of it.

Flair had one match prior in MSG, 15 years before against Pete Sanchez.
