ESPN Gives Ric Flair a 30 FOR 30 Documentary

ESPN’s 30 for 30 series has covered some of the most interesting and controversial topics in the world of sports, from the Lakers/Celtics rivalry to the Buffalo Bills four consecutive Super Bowl losses. Now, for the first time, it will cover the world of sports entertainment with the documentary “Nature Boy,” covering the career of one of the greatest ever wrestlers, Ric Flair.

Directed by Rory Karpf (“I Hate Christian Laettner”), “Nature Boy” will look at the early days of Richard Fliehr, who wanted nothing more than to make it big in the world of pro-wrestling. 16 world championships and two hall of fame rings later, he did just that and then some.

“I grew up a huge wrestling fan in the 1980s and I was captivated by Ric Flair,” said Karpf, “It’s been a personally rewarding experience to tell the story of arguably the greatest wrestler of all time. Ric’s story transcends the wrestling business and my hope is that it will appeal to wrestling and non-wrestling fans alike.”

Along with two interviews with Flair shot within a 16-month period, Karpf also talks to wrestling legends such as Hulk Hogan, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, the Undertaker, Ricky Steamboat, Sting, and Road Warrior Animal, all who had stories to tell about what it was like to step into the ring with “the Man.”

“Nature Boy” will premiere November 7th on ESPN.
