After weeks of no real information regarding in my opinion a very highly anticipated documentary we finally got some more information. I feel like I have been talking about a future 30 for 30 on Ric Flair coming around for almost a year or so at this point, but now the director has given us a time period to look forward to. So the documentary is set to be released in the Spring of 2017 as that is right now the tentative release date. In my book that means it could be earlier or later depending on the amount of footage they have and editing that is needed to be done for the documentary.
I feel as though this documentary will be very candid and will allow the modern fans to see how good Flair was and maybe add an extra dimension to the legendary aura of the "Nature Boy." I also know that even though the documentary is only 30 minutes and they could probably do at least 3 parts of the series on just the Horseman. I believe that ESPN will continue to not show why 30 for 30 has always been a critically acclaimed series and that everyone they do is spoken very highly of and gets excessively praised by the viewers.
I am very excited for the Spring of 2017 to see just good this documentary is, because even though I know the story of the "Nature Boy" I know that ESPN will tell the story in the best way possible to make even more people know why Ric Flair is one of if not the greatest of all time!!! Woooooooooo
