Steamboat Challenges Flair For U.S. Crown

Savannah Morning News – August 28, 1977

Ric Flair, U.S. heavyweight champion, and Rick Steamboat, Mid-Atlantic Wrestling Alliance TV titleholder, put their belts on the line Sunday night at the Savannah Civic Center arena, as Mid-Atlantic features the match on a five-bout card.

The TV title will be at stake for only the first 15 minutes of the match, while Flair’s title will be on the line for the duration. Flair recently won his belt by beating Bobo Brazil in St. Louis, Mo.

In the semifinal match of the night, Mr. Wrestling takes on the Masked Superstar, whoever he may be.

Rick McGraw and Charlie Fulton kick the evening’s action off at 7:30 p.m. and Tiger Conway battles Crusher Jerry Blackwell in another singles confrontation.

The only tag team match on the program is between Tully Blanchard and Ted Oates and Mr. X and a Korean giant named Kim Duk, who likes to spread salt around, reportedly to ward off evil spirits.

Flair is not as popular in this area as the rugged Steamboat, and the fans often show their displeasure with the “Nature Boy.”
