Ex-WWE Star Recalls ‘Proud Moment’ Involving Ric Flair

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is one of the greatest stars in pro wrestling history. WWE veteran Scott McGhee recently recounted some of the most memorable moments of his wrestling career, including defeating Ric Flair.

Scott McGhee says defeating Ric Flair was a huge moment

McGhee has been one of the mainstays in Championship Wrestling From Florida’s programming in the early to mid-1980s. He also competed for the NWA World Championship on many occasions but fell short of capturing the gold.

In 1985, he took his talents to WWE, where he worked until 1987 before returning to the indie circuit. In a chat with Bill Apter of Sportskeeda Wrestling, Scott McGhee looked back at some of the fondest memories of his short-but-impactful wrestling career. He recalled that defeating then-NWA Champion Ric Flair in a non-title match in 1984 remained one of his favorite moments.

Furthermore, McGhee added that defeating Billy Graham for the NWA Florida Heavyweight Title in July 1984 was another moment he’s immensely proud of.

“Two moments was one time I beat Ric Flair on TV when he was a world champion [in a non-title match], and the other one was when I beat Billy Graham for the Florida Heavyweight Championship. Those were my two highlights because when I was 15, I used to work out at Billy’s house, and I just used to worship the ground he used to walk on. So, that was a big deal, especially for the Florida Heavyweight Championship [NWA] and the other one was with Ric,” said Scott McGhee.
