Interesting even if you don't like pro wrestling.
7 November 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I am not the target audience for this episode of "30 for 30" because I never have watched nor enjoyed pro wrestling. Despite this, however, I did find this installment interesting...mostly because Flair was an interesting character...with many flaws.

During the 1970s through the 90s, Ric Flair was a bigger than life figure in the pro wrestling world. He was a great wrestler physically...but he was also a huge spectacle on and off the mat as well. With a persona of a pretty guy who lived LARGE (with tons of girls and booze and partying), it's amazing he's lived as long as he has! But, as a result of this lifestyle, he was not the best family man...a guy who was fun to be with but not exactly fun to be related to. And, the final portion of the show centers on his terrible family life and its impact on his children, in particular, Reid.

The show is made up of interviews with Flair (both before and after his well publicized near-death recently) as well as his contemporaries, friends and family. It creates an interesting figure...but also a rather sad and pathetic one in some ways. Very well made...as are all the episodes of "30 for 30".
