Did anyone watch it?  I thought it was very well done.  I am old enough to remember vividly Flairs rise to fame.  As a Adolescent boy in the 70’s and early 80’s a lot of boys were fans of pro wrestling in those days and people didn’t realize how hard of a life these people live…While it is scripted, they do take great risks with their bodies and are on the road so much they don’t ever really heal both physically and mentally..Stunt actors are probably better descriptions of what they do.

My favorite Naych line was back in the early 80s WCW. He was being interviewed by Tony Schiavone and a heckler tried to shout him down. Rick told him, “My shoes cost more than your house!“Boom!!!!

Honestly I’m not raving about it like everyone else.  It was good, but I felt like I wanted more personal stuff from Flair.  We got his impact on wrestling, and that was his life…...but I want to know more about the struggles outside of the ring.  And I wanted more after the ring stuff, what has he been doing lately, what is he up to now, kind of thing.
