We open with video of Ron Garvin knocking out and pinning NWA Champ Ric Flair from a house show. This was after a 60-minute draw. They agreed to continue the natch. Garvin won, but did not receive the NWA Title since the time limit had already expired.

Tony Schiavone and David Crockett are our hosts today. Coming up on the show, Garvin will face Flair’s cousin and Four Horseman teammate Arn Anderson for the NWA World TV Title. Ric Flair will make a rare in-ring appearance on the show.
