Steel Cage Match: Ric Flair, Ole Anderson, and Arn Anderson Vs. Dusty Rhodes and The Rock and Roll Express
NWA Mid Atlantic Championship Wrestling - October 28th, 1986
The amount of love that The Rock And Roll Express had is incredible. Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson are literally escorted to ringside by a human barrage. Unreal.
This match is one of the greatest gatherings of professional wrestling superstars in history. The match took place in Rock Hill, South Carolina, but this video is from a Japanese wrestling video, hence the odd commercials and the subtitles. At the time, The Four Horseman were the most hated stable (no pun intended) in professional wrestling and were going strong. Dusty Rhodes, at this point, was already a veteran, making his name on the bruises of Ric Flair and furthering his efforts by the side of the Rock And Roll Express, who were monstrously big names in the sport.
To hear a crowd reacting like this is an amazing thing. I wish, by some insane, crazy means, I could go back in time and be a part of Southern professional wrestling glory. Watch this match for the great action, as well as the showboating of Rhodes and Flair, who almost seem like this match is par for the course. Especially when Flair is keeping Gibson from getting the tag. You want so badly for Flair to just have his ass handed to him. Beautiful work by 6 incredible superstars.
