Off topic -Ric Flair Documentary
It might honestly be the greatest sports documentary in history. Possibly one of the best documentaries in general.

Seriously worth checking out, if you come out of it dry eyed you're a better man than I.

Truly an amazing story about a man who was one of a kind.

Good documentary. I knew he was a terrible father, but I didn't realize he was that much of a trash father/husband.

Used to love watching him at the Scope. One of the greatest athletes who ever lived hands down. Anyone who is able to wrestle for an entire hour while high on drugs and not have his heart explode must be an athlete of the highest order lol.

My dad knew someone who was a longtime ticket taker at scope. We would walk in to his line and act like we were giving him tickets and he would let us right thru.
I saw hundreds of free events at Scope, a ton of them were wrestling with ric flair, Ricky steamboat, rowdy Roddy piper, black jack mulligan. .....good times!

Btw anyone you ever talk to about Ric Flair has nothing but nice things to say about him. He was gracious and friendly to just about everyone.

He was just a sh.tty father and husband because he was on the road working nearly 365 days a year and because he couldn't keep it in his pants. Easy to judge someone when you have no idea what it's like to be them and through a modern day morality. Wrestling was brutal back then, you worked every single day with no breaks.

Nice guy, lived in the neighborhood across the street from him and his oldest daughter graduated with my sister. Charlotte had all the wrestlers living there back then. He use to drive an old 60's model convertible Cadillac that I'm not sure if the roof would go up. The funniest thing I ever saw was Dusty Rhodes driving his BMW 318. I will just say that he didn't fit in it very well.

RE: Off topic -Ric Flair Documentary
As a kid I loved watching wrestling and going to the shows with my youngest uncle who grew up with Terry Allen aka Magnum TA. I remember my uncle taking me to visit Terry a few years after his accident at his parents home in Great Bridge and asking him a million questions about wrestling and the guys. I remember watching a vhs of his match with Tully Blanchard steel cage that afternoon with him and my uncle and I was in awe. Ironically Terry is married to Tully’s ex-wife Courtney now. In the 90s I started amateur wrestling in middle and high school and realized wrestling on TV was fake and lost all interest watching wrestling. I didn't start appreciating the sport again until 2008 when Terry came back to the area for his father's funeral and gave a box of old vhs tapes to my uncle I guess they were his father's collection of Magnum TA. I realized after watching a few with my uncle and cousins what it must take to be able to perform, look the part and the choreograph of each match. I believe it is a sport again and compare it to dance, cheerleading, figure skating and gymnastics. I really don't have a taste for the current stuff on TV but I can watch the stuff from the early 90s back. As I got older my uncle would tell me stories of the wild after parties TA and the other wrestlers would have down at the ocean front and Military Circle. I guess Military Circle was a happening place in the 70s and 80s?

My uncle's favorite story he tells everyone is how Terry Allen called him up one morning after partying hard the night before with Ric Flair down at the beach and they had to be in Richmond in a few hours for their next show. My uncle went down to the beach and picked them up but had car trouble on VA Beach Blvd. They walked to a nearby car lot and Ric Flair talks the dealer into letting them borrow a dark green Jaguar. My uncle said Ric kept telling him to go faster. He said he was going 90+mph on 460 and 95 and never got caught.

Ric Flair calls Norfolk and the HR area his second home, https://pilotonline.com/entertainment/wr...27bf1.html

Two of those "brushes" weren't even about him lol.

And if the worst thing he did was a traffic altercation that went nowhere in nearly 40+ years, then I'd say he's probably got a pretty big leg up on most people.
