Young & O’Neil Choose Five-Star Match, PPV Stat For The WWE Title, Otunga & Natalya Video
– This week’s WWE Classics Five-Star Match of the Week was chosen by Darren Young and Titus O’Neil. They chose Ric Flair vs. Vader from Starrcade 1993. Young told WWE’s website:
“The Prime Time Players’ favorite match is Ric Flair vs. Vader, WCW World Heavyweight Championship, Starrcade 1993. Why that match stands out is because Ric Flair was the underdog and Vader was the World Heavyweight Champion. One of the most impressive things in this match was when Ric Flair performed a delayed suplex on Big Van Vader himself. Four hundred and fifty pounds over his head. At the time, Ric Flair was in his late 30s/early 40s, so to pick up a guy that big was unreal.”
– With WWE Champion CM Punk being pulled from the TLC pay-per-view due to injury, the last time a WWE pay-per-view event did not have a WWE Title match was the No Way Out event in February 2007.
