Are you talking about his early 80s run or early 93 return

Starrcade 83.

You're right though it's just a misspelling. I believe it is spelled Flair For The Gold in 93.

Is it fair to say that Bobby Heenan's greatest skill as a commentator was making a mostly bad product palatable to an audience that was now not as dumb as the show?

This applies to early 90's WWE and WCW mostly.

Obviously there are exceptions to the dumbness but overall there was a lot of shitty gimmickery at that time...

He got bad pretty fast in WCW because he didn't have a guy like Gorilla to play off of. Tony wasn't gonna do that. He definitely made otherwise boring matched entertaining.

Finished the Moolah Dark Side of the Ring. I like how they didn't pick sides and told the story from multiple perspectives. Very well done and it actually fit within the tim constraints.

The defence for Moolah fielded by her daughter, an unheard of female wrestler and "some guy".

They held their own though. I think the pimping thing has been over stated all things considered...
Wendi Richter came off as fairly dim if her version of the screw job is to be believed.

Bambi hardly if ever wrestled in the WWF. She was more of an NWA wrestler. Did a touring match with Peggy Lee Leather. They used to say Bambi would win in the ring, but Peggy would get her heat back in the bedroom if you catch my drift.


Wendi is such a country bumpkin lol. Love her. I don't believe her when she said she didn't know it was Moolah. Such a weird thing to deny. Like they had to call spots in the ring didn't they? Moolah has a pretty distinct voice. I'm convinced she is kayfabing, which makes me love her even more. She's definitely right when she says she was close to Hogan's popularity and deserved to be paid a lot more.

Yeah I thought she must have been in kayfabe... I do dig it when wrestlers pull that off in the middle of a straight documentary.

What do you reckon would be good stories for a second series? I assume Owen and the steroid trial/s would be on the table, maybe the ring boy scandal... Buck Zumhoff, Jim Herd's WCW tenure, Dynamite Kid's fall from grace, Arn/Sid could all be interesting if already fairly well known.

I'd definitely like the Chris Adams story told.

Adams for sure. I heard they are doing Dino Bravo which will be amazing. Owen is a given. Chris Colt would be great although he might be a little too obscure. The Ring Boys scandal would be good. Herb Abrams UWF would be amazing. Snuka killing Nancy Argentina would be awesome.
