Saw this on one of the wrestling groups on Facebook. Never seen this pic before. Guess it was taken on June 17, 1973 just before he toured with IWE in Japan

I'm wondering if this was just around the time he met Ken Patera.

He was friends(roommates?) with Patera before either trained for wrestling. It's how Flair was brought into Gagne's training camp to start with.

Isn't that a pose that is the spitting image of either Dusty Rhodes as a solo or as part of the Outlaws? Flair idolized Bigdust and wanted to portray his brother Ricky Rhodes before Verne nixed that thought.

This still isn't the one I'm thinking about.  There's a better one out there.

I know Flair idolized Rhodes and all but the pose he takes in the top photo looks more like one that Crusher or Bruiser would take.
Didn't Flair say that he grew up watching and admiring Crusher on TV?
