The sixteen-time World Champion and one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, Ric Flair, is getting his own ESPN 30 for 30 documentary! And it looks absolutely AWESOME!
Nature Boy (titled after Flair's ringside nickname) promises to be an in-depth look at sports entertainment...and what occurs when the real-life performers start evolving into their wrestling characters.
This seems to happen to even some of the best wrestlers. The Ultimate Warrior even legally changed his name from James Brian Hellwig to "Warrior" in 1993. Occasionally, the lines between fantasy and reality in professional wrestling can blur to the point that the human being and their ring persona are indistinguishable.
With appearances by wrestling legends Hulk Hogan, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and others, this promises to be a 30 for 30 that is NOT to be missed! Nature Boy will debut on ESPN on November 7th! Check out the trailer below! Wooooo!
