Dusty Rhodes defeats Ric Flair in a steel cage match to win the NWA World Heavyweight title. It would be The American Dream’s third- and final- time holding wrestling’s most illustrious championship.

It would be the third and last of “The American Dream’s runs as NWA world champion. The reign was short-lived, however, as Flair would regain the belt two weeks later.
