Ric Flair beyond any doubt was a terrible person. Perhaps the best, actually. An ostentatious, presumptuous and obnoxious grappler that was a specialist in his art — and he knew it. In 1989, Flair was Kanye 15 years before "The College Dropout" hit racks. However, when his third match against Ricky Steamboat for the World Title came around, fans just couldn't deny how incredible "The Nature Boy" was inside the ring.
Steamboat was your prototypical saint — a returning most loved who had vanquished the malicious enduring champ all while showcasing his folksy values and tangle ability. Their three matches during that time were brilliant, however the excellent finale in Nashville highlighted the most surprising result of all. Taking after an overwhelming half-hour war that satisfied any of their — or any other individual's — past fights, Flair at last scored a three-tally over his Mr. Decent Guy rival. In any case, that wasn't all.
Nashville ought to have booed. They ought to have shouted. They ought to have argued for Ricky to make a move. Be that as it may, something entertaining happened. After a set of three of matches that changed games amusement always, Flair earned the admiration of all that had loathed him. At the point when fans required another legend on the NWA, it ended up being The Nature Boy himself. Ric Flair won't not have been a decent person, but rather the fans cherished him for it. — ZACH LINDER
