Luger drops Flair and goes after the Andersons. Nick Patrick makes the 10 count and Flair wins by countout.
Winner and STILL NWA World Heavyweight Champion: ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair (Count-Out)

  • After The Bell: The Andersons take control of Luger, but The Steiners have a run in to save Lex.
  • EA’s Take: This match was a little long for my liking for a count-out finish at 38 minutes. It wasn’t bad, but it’s nothing we haven’t seen from these two before… only longer. With Sting on the mend, ultimately the next man up to fill his spot was Luger. Some may wonder why this was the case, but I ask, who else? There was nobody else remotely capable as there’s lots of young talent, but it’s still brand new and raw. The only problem is we just saw so much Luger/Flair in 1989 and ’88.

EA’s Finisher: Unless you’re going to have two guys fight a classic iron man match, three hours is a LONG time for seven matches. I thought it was a little weird how all the babyfaces wore arm bands for Sting too. He was injured, not dead! All in all, it wasn’t a bad show. I would have given the Road Warriors and Skyscrapers a little more time, but again this is just…vanilla. The injury to Sting was a big blow as we may have seen is big World Title win, but instead we got a “filler” main event. The real standouts of the night are the tag teams, although using the word “standout” may be an exaggeration.

Top Three To Watch
1 – The Midnight Express vs. The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express
2 – Pillman & Zenk vs. The Fabulous Frebirds
3 – The Steiners vs. The Andersons

Attitude Of Aggression #292- The Big Five Project: King of the Ring ’93

The Big Four Project becomes the Big Five Project as the guys cover King of the Ring ’93 and Bret Hart’s fantastic run to the crown!

Attitude of Aggression

The Big Four Project officially becomes the Big Five Project here on Episode 292. It’s the Attitude Of Aggression and it is time to return for another installment in the chronological analysis, review, and discussion about WWE’s now Big Five PPVs/ Premium Live Events. On this Episode, the guys cover King of the Ring ’93. In the wake of the disaster that was WrestleMania IX, WWE rebounded in a huge way with the first ever PPV version of the King of the Ring Tournament. After being screwed out of his title in Las Vegas, Bret “Hitman” Hart would complete a legendary hat-trick en route to becoming the first, and only, back-to-back KOTR winner. The guys cover all that, including a watch along of the epic Semi-Final match between Bret Hart and Mr. Perfect. KOTR ’93 was also significant as it marked the official end of Hulkamania as Yokozuna emphatically reclaimed the WWF Championship from Hulk Hogan. All that plus Shawn Michaels retaining the IC title against Crush. King of the Ring ’93 was clearly the best PPV of 1993 for WWE (by a wide margin) and the guys have all the details for you here on another epic edition of the Big Five Project!

Classic WrestleMania

Attitude Of Aggression #291- The Big Four Project: WrestleMania IX

The guys review quite possibly the worst WrestleMania of all-time, as Yokozuna wins, and then loses, the WWF Championship all in the span of 5 minutes!

Attitude of Aggression

The Attitude Of Aggression returns for another installment of The Big Four Project, a chronological analysis, review, and discussion about WWE’s Big Four PPVs/ Premium Live Events. On this Episode, the guys face their ultimate challenge…. making WrestleMania IX interesting. Regarded by many as the worst WrestleMania of all-time, the guys do their utmost best to break the event down and to try and make sense as to how and why it was booked as badly as it was. WWE got the location right for WrestleMania IX, but everything else was very wrong. Filled with frustrating non-finishes, matches being made up on the fly, double Doinks, chloroform filled rags, and a bizarre finish done for the sole purpose of getting Hulk Hogan (of all people) over, WrestleMania IX was very bad indeed. The guys do find a few gems here and there though. Is it enough to salvage this event from the lowest level of WrestleMania hell? Join us here for to find out plus much more on another epic installment of The Big Four Project!
