It was probably December 19th 1983. Flair was in Puerto Rico on December 18th for his famous match with Carlos Colon that drew over 25,000 fans.

This was the match where the WWC Universal Championship was created. Colon held a cage match where it was WWC World Champion versus NWA World Champion and of course Colon went over.

The Flair record book states it took place in San Juan Puerto Rico, but it was actually in Bayamon PR at Estadio Juan Ramon Loubriel.

I would imagine the show in Barbados was between the 18th and 23rd. As Flair was in Alabama on the 16th, so it could have been Saturday the 17th. His next booking state side was the 24th in San Antonio.

The other Barbados cards I have were held on Mondays so since the 18th was a Sunday. The probable date was December 19th 1983.
