Triple H Vs. Ric Flair: It's 1985

Adrian StaehleSenior Analyst IMarch 16, 2009

When you think about who you could compare Ric Flair to there is one name, Triple H. He has been the Flair of this generation and has become one of the true greats in the business today.

Triple H faced Flair many times before and I can remember Hunter telling Flair, "Tonight It's 1985" and watching that match brought a tear to my eye.

These two have given everything to the business and more and Flair has deserved every World Championship he has won. Triple H has also deserved every World Championship he has won and that's why these two are one and two for the most World Championships in history. Flair (16) HHH (13).

What would really happen if Hunter and Flair were in 1985 at Starcade for the World Championship?

That is a question that will never be figured out.  Those two would have put on a show for an hour and half and it would have been the greatest match in history.

These two have had sub-par matches, not great but good and I wish it was Hunter who beat Flair at WrestleMania last year, but that's me.

Flair's record will most likely be broken, but will it be Hunter to do the honors?

The question that will never be answered is what would have happened at Starcade?

Triple H vs. Ric Flair, Starcade 1985 for the World Heavyweight Championship.

What do you think would have happened?
