For the past couple of weeks, Ric Flair has been begging the fans to vote for a Steel Cage Match. His campaigning certainly paid off as 83 percent of the fans wanted to see Flair defend his Intercontinental Championship against Triple H inside the unfriendly confines of a Steel Cage.

This one was about more than wins and losses and even more than the Intercontinental Championship. This one was personal. And it became brutally obvious, as Flair was busted wide open in mere minutes. Triple H was unrelenting, grating Flair's flesh against the cold, hard steel of the cage. The Game added insult to injury by mocking Flair's trademark strut and even his mannerisms before slapping on The Nature Boy's trademark Figure Four Leg Lock.

Flair screamed out in pain, but he refused to quit. Yelling out expletives at Triple H, he told his one-time best friend that he would "kill him", gave him the middle finger and even spat at him. Flair channeled the energy of the crowd and all of the courage he could muster and reversed the painful hold, but Triple H quickly rolled out of it. The Cerebral Assassin was brutally dissecting a bloodied Ric Flair.

The Game tried to go back to the Figure Four, but Flair pushed him off with his boot, sending Triple H careening into the Steel Cage. With that one devastating blow, Triple H was busted wide open as well. With both men wearing the proverbial crimson mask, Flair went on the attack. Flair showed once again why he's the Dirtiest Player in the Game and began biting his former friend. Flair then attacked the left leg of Triple H -- the very same leg in which he suffered a torn quadriceps that almost ended his career in 2001. Flair then slapped on the Figure Four, but Triple H pulled the referee down to break the hold.

Flair tried to escape through the door, but The Game stopped him. The Nature Boy dragged in a chair on his way back in, though. Flair used the steel chair to level his opponent with four vile shots to the head. With The Game down and out, Flair was able to escape the cage for the win, thus retaining the Intercontinental Championship.
