I remember first seeing this on someone's compilation tape about 25 years ago and thinking, "man, it would be great to watch this in a little higher quality." Judging by Youtube, there doesn't exist a copy of this that doesn't look like it was recorded with a potato.

The angle itself, however, is just what you'd expect from these two guys. Brilliantly executed. A non-coked up Flair always delivered the goods in the 80's. And Piper's line about Flair being the Mae West of wrestling is one of the greatest ad-libs I've ever heard.

This is why NWA was better then WWWF/WWF in the 1970's/80's.

That was the first time I've seen that. It was some good stuff. Both of them were great in that segment.
