Of the many blunders of WCW VP Jim Herd's three years running the ship, the most notorious was his firing of World champion Ric Flair in the midst of a pay dispute. The firing came two weeks before The Bash, which Flair was to headline, and he possessed the physical belt.

A cheaply-made knockoff of the belt was made for the Lex Luger-Barry Windham top contenders Cage Match, but irate fans had none of it. A night of bad action was made worse by impassioned choruses of "WE WANT FLAIR" at every turn, and rang out even louder for the title bout.
