It was the feud that every wrestling fan had been waiting for. It was the closest that fans at that time thought they would ever get to a WWF vs WCW battle. Hulk Hogan vs Ric Flair. Much like the Invasion angle 10 years later, it could only disappoint.

Let’s Get the Band Back Together

The original Four Horseman will all appear together at Greg Price’s charlotte Fanfest.

That’s right. The original Horsemen. The one with Ric Flair and Ole Anderson. That in itself should be worth the price of admission.

It’s been years since Flair and Anderson have crossed paths. The two actually were in the same venue at the same time during last year’s Fanfest, but were strategically placed in different parts of the building. This year they’ll be sitting together at the same table, signing autographs, posing for photos and mixing with fans at the Charlotte event.

Ric Flair: “Who is Bret Hart?”

Ric Flair still inexplicably taking shots at Bret Hart, this time on Canada’s Live Audio Wrestling.

“He has the nerve to compare himself to me! Let’s get realistic. If you put Bret Hart in your left hand and me in your right hand, compare the career…who is he?

“I wrestled everybody in the business, for an hour each night. Harley Race, Dory Funk, Jack and Jerry Brisco, who is Bret Hart?

“He is a legend in his own mind. He lives in his own little world…he screws his own family around. Who is Bret Hart?

“In my world he is a nobody!”

Everyone who’s not insane understands both men were great performers. Hart led the WWF during some of the company’s most challenging years financially, losing his top spot when the business started to turn around under Stone Cold Steve Austin. While Flair lost the wrestling war to Hulk Hogan in the 1980’s, he drew big houses around the world with some of the best matches of all-time.
