I was one of the lucky ones who got to see Flair vs Steamboat in several house shows from the late '70s-early '80s where they went at it for the US title,I saw them wrestle in cage matches,no DQ maatches,tag matches against each other with differnt partners,the wole 9 yards,and yes,some of those matches were just as good if not better than the NWA title matches of 1989.

Personally the best flair match I saw other than Flair vs Steamboat were some of the old matches against Blackjack Mulligan and Wahoo,man those matches weren't technical masterpieces but the intensity was off the charts and the fans ate it up,myself included,and maybe the best Flair vs wahoo match was an Indain Strao match where Wahoo was the heel and Flair was the face.

Chi Town Heat vs. Steamboat by far. Probably my favourite match ever. Watching it live on PPV helped preserve the memory of how good it was, too.

Honorable mentions: Royal Rumble win, and vs. Nick Bockwinkel in 1986.

A discussion like this really makes me think of all the great wrestling which never was recorded or the companies who could not or did not preserve their footage on film/tape.

For in ring action, It's very close between Flair/Funk I quit & Flair/Steamboat Rajun Cajun Clash & Flair/Windham from Battle of The Belts. If somebody put a gun to my head and said you can only pick one, it would be Flair/Funk I quit. There's really no wrong answer when it comes to the matches with Funk, Steamboat & Windham. I could have easily said the Flair/Windham bout from World Wide Wrestling or the Flair/Steamboat matches from Chi Town Heat and Music City Showdown. All those matches are awesome.

The 1992 Royal Rumble match was an amazing performance too. Flair/Savage from WM was excellent.

As far as an angle goes, nothing tops Flair returning from suspension to confront Bischoff on Nitro. Not even Terry Funk attacking Flair after the Music City Showdown match with Steamboat.

I could go on all day about great Flair matches and angles.

My absolute fav and what I consider his best match was against Windham in Jan of '87, can't remember the date or show.  Think it was World Wide Wrestling.

Also, Flair/Funk I quit and the Clash against Steamboat.

Thought he had a great match and made Sting look like a million bucks at the first Clash also.

Have to agree with that one too. Besides his singles greatest, the Rumble alone proved him being the "60 min man".

It's the closest he ever came to a clean win over chump Hogan.

Except for when Hogan was in the NWO and Flair was still a heel but playing semi-face against him.  Hogan needed run-ins to save him a few times then.

I remember that Nitro match where it was Flair/Arn v. Sting/Hogan and 'The Huckster' had to run-out during Sting's intro to avoid getting booed.

Katook is right the old US title matches with Flair vs Steamboat were better than the later stuff IMO. The Wahoo matches were brutally fun and the Flair vs Snuka matches cannot be forgotten either. Sad how much great stuff from so many hours is lost forever

And people always talk about The Hat and Robe angle between Flair and Mulligan.

I am not a fan of the Starrcade match with Race and don't think it ranks in either man's top 100, but I did love the bounty angle leading up to it and the stuff with Orton and Slater.

Well you couldn't not like that.  Bob Orton Jr. is the greatest angle ever.

Let's not forget Flair in some tag matches,especially with Greg Valentine.Their matches against Gene and Ole Anderson and Ricky Steamboat and Paul Jones were damn good matches,and some of the matches he had vs Valentine for the US Title stand the test of time as well.
