ESPN Set To Release Ric Flair’s 30 For 30 Documentary “Nature Boy” In November (VIDEO)
Over the years, ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentaries have been absolute must-see TV that rarely disappoint.
Last year, the world wide leader in sports unveiled the trailer for the upcoming documentary on WCW/WWE superstar the ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, which is set to be released sometime in 2017.
On Wednesday, it was finally confirmed that the documentary will air on November 7th.
“ESPN Films announced today at the Television Critics Association Press Tour (TCA) that its 30 for 30 documentary “Nature Boy,” on wrestling legend Ric Flair, will premiere on Tuesday, Nov. 7, at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN. Director Rory Karpf (“I Hate Christian Laettner,” “The Book of Manning”) will take an inside look at Flair’s story, including his triumphs, his tragedies, and his pivotal role in turning pro wrestling into mainstream sports entertainment.
Real or Fake? It’s a question that’s long shadowed professional wrestling. But for one of the industry’s most legendary performers, there’s never been any separation between the ring and the world around it. His story starts in the Midwest, when a young Richard Fliehr set his sights on rising to stardom in a unique world, and decided to do anything necessary to get to where he wanted. A character was born, along with a singular desire “to be the man,” and a drive that made him as popular and polarizing as any figure ever to step into the ring. The success took a considerable toll – on his body, and on his wives and children – and in 2013 came a tragic postscript. But today, Flair remains as defiant as ever, proud of his legacy, eager to remain in the spotlight. This is the story of a man, a character, and their unbreakable connection.”
