These two met 6 times here between 1980-1984 over the NWA World title.

Every bout was non-stop action in the ring, out of the ring, and on the ramp.
They would trade off those slow hold-in-the-air suplexes on the canvas and on the hard wooden ramp.
It was always 110% when these two met.

Flair had his figure-four and Race had those falling head butts which would leave Flair a bloody mess.
While Race was slow and methodical where every move counted, Flair who could do no wrong here was fast and hyper.

Two of the all-time greats in this sequence from April 1982.
Last pic is Flair being restrained by Ron Ritchie and Johnny Weaver, ref is Bill Alfonso.
