30 for 30 on ESPN - Nature Boy Ric Flair

I thought there was already a thread about this but I could not find one. The 30 for 30 series is really well done. But the one on Nature Boy Ric Flair is absolutely the best, by far. Lots of insight in to the world of pro wrestling back in the old NWA days. The old NWA was mostly down south but once Flair became such an attraction, and since he is from Minneapolis, we often got the matches on TV up here in Minnesota.

Highly recommend watching this one!

Another interesting fact I learned a few days ago watching Joe Rogan podcast on YouTube is that the lead singer from Smashing Pumpkins, Billy Corgan, now owns the original NWA and all the history rights, films, everything.

I saw this episode and thought it was well done--Ric was quite the party animal, which sadly bled over to his son.
