For the first and last time, I'm posting a match I haven't watched yet. I hope you guys are excited as I am.
Ric Flair v. Ricky Steamboat, March 18 1989
More trivia- Match of the year in 1989 went to another of Flair and Steamboat's matches, the Clash of the Champions 2/3 falls match I referenced in the last MMS. That match took place on April 2nd, a few weeks after this one, so maybe Meltzer decided the April 2nd match was better, but that the 5-star system should remain intact, and stuff. The other piece of trivia I want to share is that Ricky Steamboat's real name is Dick Blood. Go ahead and look it up.
