May 24, 1974 in Burlington, NC

This card took place 11 days after Ric Flair arrived in Jim Crockett Promotions. The preview article mention's Ric being a "relative" of the Anderson's. During tv interviews, Ric said he was their "cousin". This pre-dates his tag team run with Rip Hawk as Rip's "nephew". When Rip Hawk left JCP for good in late 1974, Ric Flair became an Anderson "cousin" once again when Gene and Ole returned from Georgia around the same time.
