Started in the AWA ~ right?

Wondering if he was "mid card", a total nobody or if he got something resembling a push pretty early on.

Complete curtain-jerker.  Won some, lost a lot more, mainly against the other trainees from his class, but never got close to mid-card in the AWA.

Geez, look at the names on that roster!  I really believe that the early 70's AWA had the greatest collection of talent of any territory in the kayfabe era.

How were Larry Hennig and Lord James Blears being used at the time?  They're the only veterans I saw on the list that Flair beat.  Hennig was by DQ so I assume that it was a case of Hennig just beating him down so badly he got DQ'ed.

I am pretty sure he used only his given name of Richard Fliehr went he first started out. I'll look to others more certain than I am that he never used tha name 'Ric Flair' until after he left the AWA.

Ron (quasi) has the clippings. He can post them if he wants. Most of the time it was Rick Flair.

Blears was just in once in a while. Verne had a bought into the Hawaiian promotion run by Ed Francis. Blears was a regular there. Flair's first match in Hawaii was against the veteran Hard Boiled Haggerty. I'll post that later.

Flair's TV record was 6 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw. He wasn't a TV jobber. He was just a young undercard performer.

Has any one ever verified his first date, or is it something that has just been floating around.  I am talking about the December 10, 1972 date.  What puzzles me is his opponent.  Scrap Iron Gadaski wrestled in Minneapolis on the 10th.



December 17, 1972 the papers were aleady using the last name of Flair.

Nobody has ever documented the first match of Flair's career in Rice Lake. It might be a bogus result or perhaps an afternoon show.

Re: Rice Lake

There's also a Rice Lake Township in Minnesota. It's near Duluth. I'll ask George Schire about Rice Lake on KM before I call the library. Want to make sure I'm calling the correct state. :D

The thing that made Crockett's TV so cool at this time was that it was mainly a way to get folks out to see the matches that claw has just listed here.  You could see almost any of the matches including the prelims on TV just before it would come to your town.  I saw a lot of the spot shows in Rocky Mount, NC as a youngster (I was 12 in 1974) and even a preliminary match like Flair v. Les Thatcher would be on TV and then the "rematch" would be at the Rocky Mount Ballpark.   The television was very well thought out up and down the card.  There was rarely a squash at this time unless it was to set up a "save" that created a new feud between a new heel and an established face.

I may not remember the decision exactly right but I know that one of the best early Flair matches I ever saw was Flair v. Jack Brisco in Rocky Mount.  I can't remember if Brisco was NWA champ at the time but I believe the match ended in a 45 minute time limit draw.  They continued on after the bell for another 20 minutes or so with flair taking these really sick face first bumps all over the outfield as well as in the mud around the bases.  It had rained earlier in the day and the field was very wet.

Anything further about Rice Lake?

I've halfway wondered if the date and place is a Apter mag creation. Flair's never been quoted as saying anything beyond Gadaski was his first opponent and that Verne finally admitted that it was fake five minutes before the match.

As for the name spelling, well over half of the AWA era clippings I've seen spell it without the 'k'. It is a bit odd that he was the only one who didn't use his given name coming out of camp. In fact, I can't think of any Gagne trainee who went by anything else (unless Blackjack Mulligan or Ole Anderson did).

Nature Boy: The earliest newspaper reference I've seen is from September 1975.

Three clippings ...


Detroit Lakes, MN (Mar 21 1973)


San Antonio, TX (June 13 1973)

I believe, but am not positive that this is a correction from June 6. Unless he faced Fargo twice in two weeks.


Ames, IA (May 3, 1974)

One his last AWA matches.

I have not heard back from the Rice Lake, Wisconsin library. They said it would be two weeks before they got back to me. I'll call them again next week.

Was the Rice Lake listing in Helwagen's original Flair record book?

It was. 'Course, I don't know the source of his information on that. I suspect RSPW.

Looking back at RSPW archives, Gary Will didn't have that date when someone posed the question in 1993. That leads me to believe that it hadn't been mentioned anywhere.

The date (obviously copped from somewhere) was first mentioned on RSPW in early 1995. Helwagen hung around the group at least some as he posted a couple of times in late 1995. The book itself was originally published in December of that year.

Vance's newest CD collection has some interesting stuff. Great collection of magazine articles. Occasionally, there'll be mentions of his beginnings:

May 1982 (legit interview with The Wrestling News) - States debut was January 1973 in Wisconsin and a 10 minute draw against Gadaski.

October 1986 (legit interview with Wrestling Eye) - Says 1973. "I started in Wisconsin and went to Louisiana, Oklahoma, Canada, and Hawaii. Finally, I settled down in the Mid-Atlantic area with Crockett Promotions."

No mention of Japan or Texas, but it looks like it's possible there are even more missing matches from 1972-74.

Perhaps the first mention of him being born in Memphis.

June 1989 (PWI or sister mag) - Listed as December 10, 1972 against Gadaski.

July 1990 (PWI) - Listed as early 1973.

It looks safe to assume that Flair doesn't know the date, but the parts about Gadaski, Wisconsin, and a draw are correct.

Though not many historical pieces on Flair's career appeared in Apter mags, it still looks a little suspicious that out of the blue a concrete date of December 10, 1972 appears.

"I was in contact with a guy literally about 4 years ago. He had made a fantastic Flair site with all his results listed but for the life of me I cannot find his site or his contact details. Anyway, here's what he had listed for 72-74. Credit to this nameless guy!"

That's Hammer To Fall. SHE posts here. Her name is Becky Taylor.

I'm researching individual Ric Flair matches throughout his career, and really enjoyed this series of posts. But why did we stop? Did we ever verify Rice Lake? And what about 1975 and beyond? And the great storylines during that time period, such as the Table Leg match, "I Broke Wahoo's Leg," and of course the plane crash, subsequent recovery, and runs as Mid Atlantic TV Mid Atlantic, NWA Tag Team, and US champion? I have some 1975 results and am happy to share, if anyone is interested in keeping the thread going.

No. All I ever found out about Rice Lake was the city published a weekly newspaper.

Thanks for the link. I spent a great deal of time analyzing the information in it, and I now have "adjusted" won-lost records for Flair against every wrestler he's ever faced in a singles match. The adjustment is that if a champion defends a title and loses in such a way that the title doesn't change hands or get held up, e.g. a countout or DQ, I counted it as a win for the champion, because it was a successful title defense. This was necessary to properly account for many of the 1980s matches, the repeated "Dusty Finish," etc. I also have the records in unadjusted form, and can split them by month, year, promotion, etc.

Since Ask the Clawmaster prides itself on being able to answer questions like "did these two wrestlers ever meet?" or "what is this wrestler's all-time record vs. that one?" I thought that this information might be useful to one or more people here. What is the best way to convey it?
