|Flair pushing three or four contenders was smart on his part because JCP didn't standardize its cards to the point that on each day of the week, the lineups in all cities were the same. He might have matches with Nikita in most cities, but would also face Ronnie Garvin in some, Dusty would take a break from feuding with Tully to get a shot somewhere, and perhaps there'd be a match for a guy like Brad Armstrong in a smaller JCP market like Macon. Flair got that if he went on TV to bang the drum only about Nikita, the fan who was thinking of buying a ticket to see him against someone else might view the bout as unimportant and not worth his time and money. Flair pushed those bouts too and got fans in the house.
