Video Vault – Ric Flair vs. Bob Backlund 1982

In the 80s, when two big champions squared off face to face – it was a big deal and almost always guaranteed a sell out.

Today we present a face to face back and forth promo between WWWF Champion Bob Backlund and NWA World Heavyweight Champion “Nature Boy” Ric Flair, hyping up a big unification match to happen on Independence Day – July 4th, 1982, at the Omni in Atlanta, GA. In the early 80s, Georgia was one of the hottest territories in the country and the Omni was a perfect building to host this big match.
