Apparently this match, which has been talked about since at least the 80s/90s in the Apters, didn't take place. It would be interesting to see how or why this became the canon for Flair's debut.
The AWA Unleashed podcast host said in his comment section on YT this week that they may not have Greg as a guest as they are concerned with the BS he will say which Shire/Karsch may have to push back against.Brody Tazmanian Devils to his podcast feedOn this episode of Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw, WWE Hall of Famers Gerald Brisco and John Bradshaw Layfield welcome the legendary Greg Gagne.

If you don't know where it is, we don't!Schire quit the pod. Apparently the dirt is online....somewhere.
Martel was being courted by Vince (like every wrestler in the world was) and Verne made Martel champ to keep him from jumping ship.
Wrap your head around the fact that he was the first long term babyface champ since 1975 (Hi Otto! Hi Jumbo!) and the first one not named Gagne since 1967ish.Martel definitely seemed like a future World Champion in the early '80s but by the time he actually got a World Title, his bland babyface schtick seemed so tame and boring compared to Hogan and Flair that he already felt like somewhat of a relic.
There's probably an alternate universe where Vince Sr doesn't get sick and Martel is in running to replace Backlund as top babyface of WWF.
