Match of the Day – Ric Flair vs Ricky Steamboat 03/18/1989

Today’s match of the day is a hidden gem on YouTube. The Flair-Steamboat series of 1989 is one of the most famous series of matches in history, centered around the trilogy from supershows Chi-Town Rumble, Clash of the Champions 6, and WrestleWar ’89. This is a house show match from March 1989 at the Capital Centre in Landover, MD. In listening to historical wrestling podcasts, there are some who think this is THE best match these two had. It’s an interesting watch because it lacks commentary, giving you the sense that you are watching this live from a balcony seat.
