Ric Flair is one of the reasons I watch professional wrestling. I’ll never forget the night when I witnessed Flair winning the WWE Championship for the first time at the Royal Rumble 1992 which took place at the Knickerbocker Arena (now the venue is called “The Times Union Center) in Albany, N.Y.. I was there that night at the Rumble ’92 ppv. I didn’t get very good seats; I remember sitting at the very top, but I could still see the ring pretty well from way up there.
The Rumble ’92 was indeed one of the greatest Rumble ppvs in the history of wrestling. I’ll never forget that night ever and I was fortunate enough to be there to watch it live in person. I got to see so many legends that night I remember… Hulk Hogan, Jake the Snake, The Undertaker, Owen Hart, Jim Neidhart, Rick Martel, Mr. Perfect, Tito Santana, Roddy Piper, Sid Justice, The Macho Man, Greg The Hammer Valentine, Big Bossman, The Legion of Doom, Jimmy Snuka, etc. That was such an incredible night — I still remember it like it was yesterday. I still like to re-watch the Royal Rumble 1992 every now and then
I respect Flair so much. He has done so much for the wrestling business over the years. Ric has worked for pretty much all wrestling companies. He went through the AWA, the WWF/WWE, WCW and TNA Impact. The only company he didn’t work for was ECW obviously. My respect for Flair is pretty immense.
Thanks Ric for all you do.
