Can "modern" cage matches still be won by pinfall? I saw an old one recently from 1982 that was a WCCW cage match (when the cages were much shorter) that was Ric Flair vs Kerry Von Erich.

That one had two referees (a "regular" referee, and "Fabulous Freebird" Michael Hayes), for some reason, and you could win it by pinfall. I believe Flair won because Kerry was "knocked out" and couldn't continue the match.
I guess it depends on the promoters who set up the match.

Was that the match where Hayes slams the door on Flair's head so Kerry could win, and Kerry refused to cheat?
