ClubWWI.com members know that “Club For The Gold” is a takeoff on the famous Ric Flair WCW talk show “Flair For The Gold”, which introduced the world to the beautiful Wendy “Fifi” Barlow. James Guttman and Wendy have discussed many moments from the talk show during her ClubWWI audio appearances from the Shockmaster to Rick Rude, but there are even more out there that even Fifi hasn’t thought about much in years…that is until she came across them on Youtube. As she tells James…
“You’ll notice that I have finally found a lot of old Flair For The Golds somehow, every now and then somewhere they pop up. And each one has an interesting story.”
Wendy has been posting many videos on her Facebook fan page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/FiFi-from-Wrestling/281035113452) and James has been adding them to the WorldWrestlingInsanity.com Youtube player. One infamous edition was Sting’s arrival where Barlow and a group of children were supposed to come in to meet the Stinger. Unfortunately, timing is the key and the future Joker Crow was not happy.
“I found the Sting one of “The Flair For The Gold”. You really can’t tell that he was so annoyed that he flipped out after the end of the show and somebody got fired because they cued me and the kid in too early. Of course, he wasn’t mad at me. It was the person who cued us in. I had no idea what was going on. It was hilarious. To me, it was funny. But then someone got fired – so that wasn’t.”
Fifi isn’t the only ClubWWI.com host with a history on Flair For The Gold. The controversial host of Glorious also had a memorable experience there when he was chosen to replace Tully Blanchard in the New Horsemen. It was another episode Wendy recently found and she tells Guttman that tension was in the air.
“Also there was the one where the Four Horsemen were being reunited with your buddy…Yeah. Paul Roma. What was really funny about it is that the two – Ole Anderson and Arn Anderson – come walking out. If you listen to it, Ric is like “OK. Go sit with the girls.” Then they go, “We’re going to head over with Fifi.” They just never do anything he tells them to do in the show. So that was hilarious. There was another funny story behind that…and I’ll put that in my book.”
As Barlow discusses her book plans, she promises excitement. Unlike, well, Max Payne. As Fifi explains to ClubWWI.com members, even a “Flair For The Gold” had some pretty boring guests.
“There’s the Max Payne one where he plays the guitar. We’re sitting there and I remember Ric just wasn’t into it. And if you watch the show, Max Payne is still out there hammering away and still playing the guitar. Ric and I are just totally walking off the set going, “We’re done. This is horrible.” (laughs) It was so bad! Oh my God.”
