In this edition of With This Ring, Ryan and Cindy wrap up the GWCW project with a look at the #1 Ric Flair. After a quick look at the overall list and Ryan’s picks they launch into a retrospective on Ric Flair’s career with matches stretching from 1982-2000. We look at early matches in the TBS Studios featuring Jack Brisco, Magnum TA and Ron Garvin, elevating Scott Steiner in from Clash of the Champions, A Mega Powers primer as there's matches against both Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage, and end it with 2000 WCW from the Spring Break Nitro. Throughout it all we sprinkled in some classic Flair promos and Cindy talks about how she wants her Space Mountainette t-shirt. We rank Flair among the other wrestlers we watched and spoiler alert, he’s pretty high. We put a bow on the GWCW list by looking forward to what will follow. Enjoy!
