We've discussed Flair's matches with both and how good they were. Wondering if anyone recalls Barry and Brad locking up? I can't but am thinking it would've been a barn burner.

They also had a few televised matches against each other in the early 90s, including I think Barry's first after winning the NWA title.
Speaking of 1990s NWA, I've been reading through old Observer recaps on Reddit and it seems Jim Cornette, who never joined the NWA but was close a couple of times and used the champion, was pushing for Brad to get the title.
Not sure if someone mentioned this previously, but Brad Armstrong has a clean win over Ric Flair on his record. This was either '86 or '87 at a house show. I remember reading it in a back issue of the Observer and couldn't believe my eyes.
I also recall when Bill Watts changed the format of the Saturday TBS show to WCW Saturday Night with the set looking like a talk show. One of the first main events in the new format was Brad Armstrong vs Great Muta. This was May '92 when my man Riki Rachtman was guest co-host. Match is on YouTube.
Brad was one of my favorites. Just a phenomenal talent.

Dan P-170, you're absolutely right, I stand corrected. I got my SuperBrawls mixed up, as he was let go right before SuperBrawl '93 and I got mixed up, thinking he was hired right before SuperBrawl '92.
The early Kip (or "K. Allen Frey" as he liked to be called) months were underrated and had good ratings. Kinda wish they had kept him in charge, but nobody could've anticipated Watts would've been as disastrous as he was.
