“Little Naitch” Charles Robinson - WCW Slamboree [5/9/1999]
Not only do I love the fact that Charles Robinson managed to become his idol and wrestle as “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair against Gorgeous George, I love how his tights are monogrammed in his initials “C.R.”

“Nature Boy” Ric Flair, “Little Naitch” Charles Robinson, and Asya - WCW Slamboree [5/9/1999]
I cannot remember exactly how this pairing came to be, but there was a time where Ric Flair and referee Charles Robinson were (kayfabe) running WCW. Eventually, the Presidency of WCW would be wrestled away (literally) from Flair by the man called Sting, but that’s a whole other mess. This write-up should only be focusing on one thing only — the time where Charles Robinson lived out his life-long dream by becoming Ric Flair.
WCW had Charles Robinson strut down to the ring to face “Macho Man” Randy Savage’s girlfriend at the time/valet, Gorgeous George. I don’t recall much about the match except for the fact that Robinson had the name “Little Nature Boy” sequined on the back of his black robe. Ever since this angle, I’ve always seen the guy as “Little Naitch”, even when he’s in a WWE ring calling a John Cena vs CM Punk match.

I don’t care how much time has passed, I’ll always see this guy as the evil, heel-referee known as “Little Naitch”.
