Ric Flair 30 for 30
I watched the Ric Flair 30 for 30 episode on ESPN and thought it was not only one of the best 30 for 30's but one of the best wrestling documentaries ever produced. It stripped the layers from "Ric Flair" the wrestler and gave us a look at Richard Fliehr the man. The personal and professional highs and the personal and professional devastation. It was all laid bare for the world to see.
It was great to see Flair get his due as one of the pioneers of modern "sports entertainment". His "Nature Boy" personal copied by many sports entertainers and pro athletes to this day. Hogan says he was the best. Flair's vice wasn't pills or steroid abuse....it was booze and women and lots of it. It was amazing to get a peek in the the stylin and profilin, limo-riding, jet-flying, kiss stealing son of a gun wild lifestyle Flair led in the '80's and the price he paid. It was truly eye-opening.
Did anyone else see it?
