​Yeah, Dave was telling a story on the radio show the other day, about how Nick Bockwinkel was half-ass offered the NWA World title by the promoters around the time, and he was like "Well, I can work 100 dates a year for $150,000 and vacation in Hawaii half the year, or work 300 dates a year for $350,000 and never have a life or see my family, so no thanks."  It was a pretty brutal lifestyle and it's amazing that Flair was able to last as long as he did without self-destructing.​
