Fight Theater: Rick Rude vs. The Boss

WCW International World Heavyweight Championship:
Rick Rude (Champion) Vs. The Boss
WCW Starrcade
[December 27th, 1993]

In an event that was headlined by the renowned Ric Flair Vs. Vader bout, “Ravishing” Rick Rude defends the WCW International World Heavyweight Championship against the challenger, The Boss (fka The Big Boss Man). On an episode of WCW Saturday Night, Rude made the mistake of asking if anyone in the locker room wanted a shot at his title, to which the 6′6″, 300+ pound Boss answered the challenge. This would be the second bout that these two had, and the first legitimate challenge Rude had for the title since defeating Flair for the gold only three months prior. Flair had originally came to WCW as the NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion, but when signed to WCW, the title became known as the WCW International World Heavyweight Championship, so technically, Rude was the NWA World Heavyweight Champion.
