Woooo! Ric Flair ’30 for 30′ Just Got a Slammin’ New Trailer and Release Date
“Every man wanted to be me, because I had the nicest clothes, biggest cars and more women. And I was the best wrestler.”.
The unofficial countdown to Ric Flair‘s long awaited “30 for 30” has been on for years—but on Wednesday night we finally learned the date we’re counting down to: November 7, 2018. That’s when the story of the entertaining wrestler of all-time will finally hit TVs.
ESPN made the announcement online last night and with it, came a glorious new trailer showing some incredible old school footage of ‘Naitch along with a who’s who of wrestling legends.

It opens as you might expect, with Flair pumping up his ego.”Everybody wanted to be me,” he says “Every man, because I had the nicest clothes, biggest cars and more women. And I was the best wrestler.”
But then, it gets a little dark. “Richard Flair was the real guy. The Nature boy is just a myth,” Shawn Michael says.
“It was something I was pretty good at,” Flair says. “Then it became a disease.”
This is why this documentary has been anticipated for long. We’d all watch 90 minutes on a wrestling legend, but the promise of a story that digs much deeper into the guy who’s fought ex-wives, attacked his children and had scores of money problems, is why this thing has a chance to be special.
