No contest. Ric Flair, "Easy Lover" by Philip Bailey & Phil Collins (CWF Battle of the Belts II only).

 Definitely not VHS.
 

 
What format then?

The dominant pro videotape standards at the time were 1-inch "Type C" and 2-inch "quad" (quadruplex).

Oh definitely. But you don't have to take my word for it; finished #3 in the WCCW '80s poll.

Is there any footage of the Flair/Von Erich match from the 8/15/82 Star Wars show?


2/3 falls, over 30:00 long? Second Flair DVD set, 2008 "Definitive Collection". There it's labeled 8/24/82 (TV airdate?), but surprise surprise, there weren't two Flair/Kerry matches drawing 18,000 at Reunion Arena in the span of 9 days.

I mean, clearly some guys are but is that so much to impress Dave directly or with the knowledge that there's been times where impressing him has led to getting noticed by bigger companies?


This is part of what I'm asking; when and why the working motives of "have great matches to get great reactions, future draws, and better opportunities" were joined by critical motives like "have great matches as an artistic pursuit, compare and canonize them". Savage/Steamboat and Bret/HBK were meticulous matches, designed to be remembered. Does that make them Art Wrestling? (Was Jerry Lawler only artistic by accident, since he'll happily admit to not knowing or caring about exactly which are his Greatest Matches Ever, as opposed to his biggest draws?)
