Interesting and informative look at the legend the one and only "Nature Boy" it shows Flair's life in and out of the ring and the ups and downs!
9 November 2017 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

Always been a fan of sports and like finding out info on legends and "ESPN's" series "30 for 30" is the place to turn to. And you guessed it I was a fan of old classic wrestling in it's best heyday the 1980's growing up as a kid remembered the bad guy himself Mr. Ric Flair(Woo!). And this doc called "Nature Boy" is all about the life inside and outside of the ring as you find out plenty as Flair's life had the good and the bad! The footage starts out from his childhood in Minnesota and tells how he trained as a wrestler before going in the ring in the 70's and getting started to later become the "Nature Boy". Interviews are given from family and ex wives and Flair children and many greats like Hulk Hogan, Steamboat, Four Horseman members and other wrestling members tell what an impact that Flair made on the sport. Early "NWA" footage was nice to see as his cocky and arrogant talk tough interviews were a delight, and his classic battles with the now late Dusty Rhodes were some treasure chest highlights.

It tells of the "Nature Boy's" wild ways as he couldn't leave the ladies alone as he even states in the doc, he's been with over a thousand women and as high as five sexual encounters a day. Flair had the other vice of alcohol abuse and he was married to the wrestling ring as work was his life, also shown is his move to the "WWF"(later known as the now "WWE").

Ric talks during this film before and around the footage as to how it broke his heart that he wasn't around enough for his now deceased son, as it's pain to see "The Nature Boy" cry with tears about his loss. Still thru it all even a recent near death experience can't keep a good man down as the one and only Ric Flair is still going("Woo!") Call him wrestler, bad guy, entertainer, or whatever Ric Flair was one of a kind an icon and pop culture legend that blended sports and entertainment!
