World Wrestling Entertainment Releasing 3-dvd Set of Legendary Superstar Ric Flair on 11/18/03
30 Year Career Spanning DVD Includes Feuds With Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes, Barry Windham, Ricky Steamboat and Sting
STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov. 5, 2003– World Wrestling Entertainment(TM), Inc. (NYSE:WWE – News) today announced the November 18 release of THE ULTIMATE RIC FLAIR COLLECTION, more than 10 hours of material on DVD covering every aspect of “The Nature Boys” illustrious career and 16 world championships.
From Ric Flair’s debut match on March 1, 1976, with Pete Sanchez to a match from this past year with Triple H, that includes a never-before-seen post-show tribute, this first-ever Ric Flair WWE DVD has it all.
The name Ric Flair draws universal awe and admiration. He is the 16-time Heavyweight Champion of the World and has held the World Championship more times than any competitor in the history of sports-entertainment. Fans around the world pay tribute by shouting his trademark “Woooooo!” He’s influenced more Superstars than anyone else. There are legends and all-time greats, but there is only one Ric Flair.
But Flair’s legacy extends far beyond statistics. Flair’s charisma, energy and signature “Woooooo!” expression have made him a worldwide legend — from his birthplace of Minnesota, to his longtime hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina; from coast to coast, to around the world. Flair received one of the loudest ovations ever heard on Nov. 19, 2001, in Charlotte, when he made his surprise return to World Wrestling Entertainment. He staged perhaps the greatest performance in Royal Rumble history in 1992, capturing the vacant WWE Championship by lasting over an hour in the ring. After losing the title to Randy Savage in the main event of WrestleMania VIII, Flair regained the title in late August of 1992, and then lost the championship to Bret Hart the following month.
This 3-DVD set chronicles over three decades of Ric Flair’s illustrious career featuring his feuds with Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes, Barry Windham, Ricky Steamboat and Sting.
3-DVD set with 10.5 hours of material including:
– Debut match vs. Pete Sanchez 3.1.76
– A day in the life of the Four Horsemen
– His match with Triple H from 5.19.03 Raw with a post-show tribute that has never-been-seen on TV
