Hey Scott,

How come Ric Flair, the 18 Million Time World Champion, basically never won a match with the figure-four?

I mean, surprisingly, it never killed the finish but, considering how routine Flair matches could be, why would you consistently book the Greatest Wrestler in History to always have his finish be either escaped or flat out reversed?

Well he won the World title from Savage in 92 with it, and I think Dusty in 86, so that's pretty good.  Plus I saw him beat Jimmy Garvin with it in 87 in a major program.  
That s--- got the job DONE when the chips were down.
