"The Nature Boy" and "Macho Man" almost locked horns inside the squared circle for WWE way back in 1988.
During a recent appearance on the Wrestling Inc. Daily podcast, WWE Hall Of Fame legend Ric Flair spoke about nearly being brought in to WWE back in 1988 for a program with "Macho Man" Randy Savage.
Featured below is an excerpt from the popular pro wrestling program where "'Naitch" touches on this particular topic.
"No. I just talked to Vince [McMahon]. They wanted me to come and wrestle Randy Savage, but I was just too loyal to the NWA. When you’ve been the NWA World Heavyweight Champion, how do you just skip out? Everything is a work in pro wrestling except when you are the NWA Champion. And it should be that way for anybody."
