Watch the First Teaser for Ric Flair’s ’30 for 30′ Documentary
He might be old, but he’s still the Nature Boy.
Ric Flair might be the greatest wrestler alive. Hell, he might be the greatest wrestler alive or dead. Whether he’s working in the ring or yammering into a mic, the man who calls himself The Nature Boy is a must-watch—and that’s been true for decades.
Cramming Flair’s story into 90 minutes won’t be easy, but director Rory Karpf has taken on the task. And sometime in 2017 his “30 for 30” documentary of Flair will run on ESPN.
For now, all we have is this teaser.
This documentary sounds like it’ll be as entertaining as the man himself. Already, Karpf has interviewed a handful of wrestling icons, including Sting, Triple H, The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Mick Foley and Jim Ross. He told Sports Illustrated that Flair’s first wife provided him with photos and videos of Flair before he adopted the Nature Boy persona. These were the days when he was driving around the upper-Midwest using Andre the Giant as his wingman.
While the doc will focus on Flair in the ’80s, his hey day, the 67-year-old is still making news. The legend just reupped with Monday Night RAW and celebrated by declaring that he will never retire. Let’s hope not.
