Nick C. Best Rumble ever, just for Heenan's commentary. Piper dumps some guys: "OH, THANK YOU RODDY, IT'S NOT A SKIRT, IT'S A KILT!" Piper goes after Flair: "IT'S NOT A KILT, IT'S A SKIRT!"
Stopheles Agreed. It's the only Royal Rumble that really serves as its own self-contained narrative, and Heenan is in absolute peak performance. And Flair's pretty close to his absolute best, too.
HURF BLURF DUH WOW if you close your eyes, Flair sounds like a 1000% dead ringer for Bill Walton. Also: He's like a white-hot sun radiating pure cocaine. Also also: "Ric Flair, you have made world - PUT THAT CIGARETTE OUT!"
Evilhead 6th star for the subtlety and humility tag.
athodyd What an oddly sedated "wooo." Why the anger at cigarettes though?
