Wrestling legend Ric Flair is going to be the subject of an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary
Arguably the most flamboyant and charismatic figure to ever grace the world of wrestling, Ric Flair, will soon be the subject of an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary.
Flair, who was born as Richard Morgan Fliehr and was known by aliases such as ‘Nature Boy’, ‘Slick Ric’, ‘The Dirtiest Player in the Game’ and ‘The Original Party Animal’ won the WWF Championship twice and the WWE Intercontinental Championship once during his career.
He is also the only two-time WWE Hall of Fame inductee, having been inducted on an individual basis in 2008 and as part of the Four Horsemen in 2012.

His career has certainly been an interesting one and according to Sports Illustrated, it will soon be the subject of a documentary to form part of the highly-acclaimed ESPN 30 for 30 series.
According to Sports Illustrated, the documentary will be titled Nature Boy and will be directed by Rory Karpf, who has already directed a number of 30 for 30 documentaries.
Flair himself will feature in the documentary, as will wrestling legends like Sting, The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Mick Foley and Ricky Steamboat, as well as legendary commentator Jim Ross.
The documentary is currently in the editing stages but is expected to be approximately 90-120 minutes in duration when it is eventually finished.
We can’t wait.
