Number 2: Loser Leaves WWE Match Mr. Perfect defeated Ric Flair January 25, 1993
Ric Flair and Mr. Perfect seemed inseparable since The Nature Boy arrived in WWE in 1991. Perfect was in Flair’s corner as he won the 1992 Royal Rumble Match and captured the WWE Championship. Everything was kosher between the two until Mr. Perfect got the itch to return to the ring, much to the dismay of Flair and Bobby Heenan.
Things came to a head in January 1993, when Flair decided that WWE wasn’t big enough for both of them. The former friends agreed to put their careers on the line during Raw’s third episode. Flair and Perfect set the standard for what Raw main events could be, putting on a technical wrestling exhibition with their livelihoods hanging in the balance. Both men escaped each other’s sleeper holds, while Perfect wriggled free from the Figure-Four Leglock. The match could have gone either way until Flair made a huge mistake. After whipping Mr. Perfect into the ropes, he ducked his head. Perfect came to a halt and hooked Flair into his trademark Perfect-Plex and sent him packing from WWE
