DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Show: Ric Flair jumps to WWF with NWA/WCW title belt

On this week's DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Show, I cover the entire story of Ric Flair quitting WCW to jump to WWF in 1991 while still WCW/NWA World Champion.

A few questions that are answered:

  • Karl discusses what the NWA was during that time.
  • Could Flair have jumped as still NWA World Champion and not WCW World Champion?
  • Why we really didn't get Hulk Hogan vs. Flair at WrestleMania VIII. Actual quicksand and plexiglass mazes are part of the story (I'm not even kidding).
  • How WCW got the big gold belt back, the 1992 Royal Rumble, and more.

This show has everything you could possibly want to know as I go week-to-week through the Wrestling Observer Newsletter to fill in the details and what narratives have changed over time.
