According to Hisa's site it was against Terry Funk in 1976.

If that is legit and it was truly his first World Title shot, it's awesome.  Consider how long that feud ran - weren't they wrestling each other for the WCW Hardcore Title circa 2000?

He got his first WWF title shot in Toronto in 1979. I always wondered if he got a AWA Title shot when Nick Bockwinkel toured the Mid Atlantic. there are some dates online that don't have matchups. that would be a cool discovery.:)

I assume Flair never got an AWA World title shot those first 2 years of his career.

Not likely. Flair in the AWA never really graduated past openers to my knowledge.

Flair definitely graduated past openers and into the midcard, but I couldn't find a title match during his formidable years either.

It appears the unification bout in Japan (1985) with Rick Martel may have been his first AWA World Title shot.
