The odds are very good that if you’re a regular reader of With Spandex, you’ve seen your fair share of Ric Flair matches. Regarded by many as the greatest pro wrestler of all time, there’s no question that he’s one of the three or five most beloved and influential wrestlers in history. His last in-ring run in TNA might not be anything to write home about, but for nearly 20 years he was the measuring stick as a professional wrestler, both in and out of the ring.
One of the regular features on WWE Network are “Collections,” which allow you to basically watch a playlist of iconic moments on a given topic without having to search for events or matches and click around. On Monday, WWE Network will launch a new Collection called “Ric Flair: Stylin’ and Profilin’,” which will feature his greatest matches and promos from the ’80s and just into 1991, then will end with a couple of career retrospectives and the unveiling of his statue at this year’s WrestleMania Axxess.
Basically, it’s just a good excuse to watch a whole bunch of Ric Flair, and although this is just the tip of the iceberg where “good Ric Flair content” is concerned, it features a five-star match, some nice rarities, and some classics that are always worth a re-watch.
Here’s the full Collection chapter listing, courtesy of WWE Network News. It goes without saying that nearly all of these matches are for whatever world title is involved at the given time.
