“Ravishing” Rick Rude wins the WCW International World Heavyweight Championship from Ric Flair: September 19, 1993
I don’t remember this match from Fall Brawl ‘93 at all. I know it came at the time of WCW’s split from the NWA, but this may have been a brief — very brief — period when I got out of wrestling. It didn’t last.
“Ravishing” Rick Rude wins the WCW International World Heavyweight Championship from “Nature Boy” Ric Flair: September 19, 1993
Rude out dirtied the dirtiest player in the game at Fall Brawl ‘93.
Odd ending with the ref distracted by the Nature Boy’s maid while Flair had Rude locked in the figure four. The Ravishing One took the opportunity to hit Flair with brass knux and get the pin. Glad Rude got a shot with the big gold belt. Still wish he’d gotten a major heel run with the Hulkster in WWF.
SnakeMaster Abudadein, Kevin Sullivan, Fallen Angel (Nancy Benoit) and Sir Oliver Humperdink: 1986
Here’s that photo blown up (I believe I read that it’s from the Associated Press). Sullivan, Nancy and the others played up a Satanists gimmick, which I imagine would have been super controversial in 1980s America. Sullivan and Nancy looked like they should have been airbrushed on the side of a van or on the cover of Heavy Metal.
