10 Things You Learn From Watching 1992 On The WWE Network

Ric Flair should have been given a medal for his performances throughout the year...

Perhaps the over-riding lesson learned from analysing the year 1991 in the WWF was that things were changing. This was more so behind the scenes than in front of the camera, although 1992 would accelerate that notion too. Without hyperbole, 1992 was the single most different year of WWF action people had witnessed since the mid-1980's.

More than ever before, Vince McMahon was scrambling, a process that would only heighten as time marched on towards the middle of the decade. The Ultimate Warrior had been a failed experiment, unable to fully replace Hulk Hogan as the top name in the promotion.

Looking for something a little out of left field, McMahon turned to a performer who was more closely associated with his chief rivals in WCW. That man would be 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair, and he would bridge the gap between Hulkamania and the likes of Bret Hart admirably.

Saturday Night's Main Event was put to bed after 1992, only making a return in 2006. Therefore, the events looked over here will be the Royal Rumble, WrestleMania VIII, SummerSlam and Survivor Series.
