Chi-Town Rumble – February 20, 1989
Ric Flair v. Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat
NWA World Heavyweight Championship Match

Honestly one of the best matches I’ve ever seen. World class chain wrestling, good pacing, fan interaction/reaction, and just spectacular overall wrestling. Truly two of the greatest of all time going at it. Some good chops were exchanged back and forth. Loved the chain wrestling in the first few minutes.

My favorite part of the match was when Steamboat Irish whipped Flair into the corner and Flair flew over the turnbuck, as usual, but then immediately ran across the apron and hopped onto the turnbuckle for a cross body. Steamboat would reverse it into a pin, but it was just classc, over the top Ric Flair. Loved it.

Great match with a great finish. GO STEAMBOAT!
