‘Nature Boy’ Review: Ric Flair Documentary Effectively Grapples with a Pro Wrestling Icon Lost in His Own Persona

‘Nature Boy’ Review: Ric Flair Documentary Effectively Grapples with a Pro Wrestling Icon Lost in His Own Persona
Much like the life of the mammoth pro wrestling personality it profiles, “Nature Boy” is both a celebration and a warning siren for would-be aspirants to fame and fortune. The latest installment of Espn’s “30 for 30” documentary series is under no delusion that Ric Flair didn’t enjoy (or at many points, bask in) his popularity as one of the biggest pro athletes in the world. But Rory Karpf‘s film also provides some helpful and needed context for the man that he was when he wasn’t landing pile drives. Those two figures may have eventually blurred together to the point of being unrecognizable, but the film does an admirable job of trying to distinguish between the two.

In true biographical fashion, “Nature Boy” charts Flair’s upbringing in an adoptive home, through his less-than-stellar academic career, to the origins of his wrestling superstardom. Eventually embracing a career that he initially shied away from,

WWE Star Ric Flair on the One Thing He Does Better Than Daughter Charlotte
Regardless of what Chris Jericho’s wrestling trunks would have you believe, Ric Flair is generally considered the greatest of all time. (Sorry, Y2J — we still think you’re very, very good.)
