Who's the greatest NWA champion of all time?
Over the past few months, SLAM! Wrestling has been asking the experts from around the wrestling world who the greatest NWA champion ever was. The NWA as an organization was formed in 1948 as an alliance between promoters, so we only considered champs since then, even though the title dates back historically to the early part of the century.

John Molinaro polled the experts for the answer, and surprise, surprise, it ended being the same name as the fans.

The Nature Boy Ric Flair. No one else was even close.
