Thankfully not on the WWF card in 1985: Ric Flair vs. Pete Doherty, Captain Lou, or Mr. T

Ric Flair’s initial run in the WWF/WWE started in 1991, which thankfully spared us from having to see him fight some pro wrestlers from the 1980s who just weren’t up to the task.

For example, can you imagine Captain Lou Albano wrestling his annual Boston Garden “special attraction” match against the “Nature Boy”? Flair would have sold for Albano (maybe Naitch even would have allowed Captain Lou to bodyslam him off the top rope), and the race would have been on to see who could bleed first.

I have more thoughts about the crazy foes Flair missed out on in the 1980s–such as the Red Rooster and Pete “Duke of Dorchester” Doherty–in my article at Camel Clutch Blog, “Eight comical opponents Ric Flair never fought in the 80s’ WWF.”
