In my opinion, this group of matches that took place between Chi-Town Rumble in February and WrestleWar in May is the greatest series of matches in the history of wrestling. Also looking at what followed with the feud between Ric Flair and Terry Funk this is the embodiment of someone putting a promotion on their back and getting them back on track. Flair took the struggling promotion from the ground and not only relaid a foundation, but started building the first and second floor. This is not just Ric Flair at his best, but it's Steamboat at his best as well.
