Ric Flair vs. Billy Starr on World Wide Wrestling (1980)

Ric Flair vs. Billy Starr from "World Wide Wrestling" in 1980. 
Commentary by Rich Landrum and Johnny Weaver.
WRAL TV Studios, Raleigh, NC

Mid-Atlantic TV tapings were on Wednesday nights at WRAL in Raleigh, so we thought it would be appropriate to share a little WRAL wrestling on this Wednesday.

This match was shown as a special feature on "NWA Championship Wrestling" from Knoxville, TN hosted by Les Thatcher. 
Flair was in the middle of his long chase to regain the United States Heavyweight Championship from Jimmy Snuka and manager Gene Anderson.
