Always thought this was a weak finish but it gave the Von Erichs a clean win which they probably required. I know the story is that David was supposed to get a run. Not sure if that is really true. I never thought much of him or Kerry's work. Liked Kevin though.

I didn't notice Fritz in the celebration. Any reason he stayed out of It? Poignant seeing all the bothers (well, minus David) there given what would happen in the not too distant future.

I think David may have been promised a very short run like Kerry had so they could run a big stadium show just like this and have a VE win it in Texas, but an extended run I just don't see happening if David lives.

Just speculation on my part but David as a champ longer than a month doesn't seem to fit to me. Add that David was a bit of a name in Florida based on previous work there and in japan too, which is where the majority
Of Kerry's title defended took place, and a short stint makes sense.

I doubt David would have gotten a long run either. I like the way Flair handled it. I will be back. Any tape on Flair regaining the title?

It exists. Will see if I can find it. Rematch is in Japan so Fritz & Co. can blame the biased ref.

Also, I heard years ago that David was getting a decent run with the title but Flair would get it back at Starrcade ‘84, meaning an 8-9 month run (which is longer than Dusty got).  David was considered legit in Texas, Florida, Missouri, and Japan.  All he really needed to get over completely was a run in Crockett/Georgia territory, and David was a great heel in Florida.  I’m sure he could get over as a heel in Missouri against Harley or whomever they put him in there with, and the chemistry he had with Flair would have played in the Carolinas with the face/heel dynamic reversed.  Kerry didn’t get that run simply because he was unreliable as far as making his bookings goes.

Flair has said he suggested the backslide finish because he wanted a finish that Kerry wouldnt screw up. he didnt want to take any chances.
