On this date in WCW history: Ric Flair suffers a heart attack on Monday Nitro

On December 14, 1998, Ric Flair collapsed inside a WCW ring after suffering from a "heart attack." But don't worry! Turns out it wasn't his heart after all, he was merely poisoned.

What's unfortunate is that it was a great promo overshadowed by his silly medical malady but hey, it worked for Shawn Michaels in WWF, and you know what they say about imitation and flattery.

Any Cagesiders out there buy into this angle when it first happened?
